Zoders Inn & Suites
Ranked #14 of 77 Hotels in Gatlinburg
Certificate of Excellence
Reviewed 18 April 2012

Me and wife stayed here for our visit to Gatlinburg over the Easter holiday weekend.. Just as a precursor, Gatlinburg is a very small town nestled in the smokey mountains and I don't think there are any good 4 star hotels here..

The hotel was nice and cozy but one thing we had a major issue with and was surprised that nobody has mentioned it here is the hotel entrances are from outside there is no lobby from inside ..All of the rooms open directly onto the parking lot and we did not feel safe as we have never stayed in a hotel like that.. It should be called a motel..

We were told by the clerk at the front desk that all the Best western's in Gatlinburg do not have lobby inside and hotel rooms open into the parking lot..

But if you go around the parkway drive in Downtown Gatlinburg its pretty honky tonky so didn't expect anything better..

There is a balcony/patio underneath the flowing creek which is nice.. The breakfast here was good.. There is also a wine/cheese in the evening

This was our first stay at zoders inn, We absolutely loved the balcony over the river, The rooms was kinda small but was very clean and the heated bathroom floors was a plus, The kids enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pools and my wife liked the wine and cheese hour from 5-7.If you have never stayed here you need to once, listening to the river put me to sleep every night,We decided to stay here because pigeon forge was having a car show and the rates to all hotels in pigeon forge was double, and at zoders inn i was surprised with the rate we got, so we decided to stay for the first time,as dollywood season passholders we travel here at least 7 times a year, so i look forward to staying here again

Room Tip: get a balcony over the river

I just got back from a trip to Gatlinburg and our stay at the Zoder based on tripadvisor reviews.
WE WERE THRILLED with our stay!!

This hotel, though old compared to newer units, far exceeded our expectations in cleanliness, hospitality, amenities, and charm.

The pools and snack room were a favorite of my daughter and her friend, who are pre-teens.
The safety of the hotel was an added plus.

The creek that flowed beneath our balcony sang us to sleep.

Not one, but TWO pools. One indoors, with a waterfall and one heated pool outdoors. Yes, we swam in the outdoor pool yesterday when temps were in the 60's and the water was wonderful!

If you are looking for the Marriott, with all the hoopla, then this is not your spot. If you want a good nights sleep, in a charming hotel from times gone-by, then this is the place for you.

We met a couple who were celebrating their 65th wedding anniversary, who have stayed at the Zoder since their HONEYMOON!!!! Now that alone is testimony to the wonderful hospitality of the Zoder.

Room Tip: Ask for a room by the creek.

This was our third visit to Zoders and as always we really enjoyed it. We stayed one night after two disappointing nights at a different hotel in Pigeon Forge. It is starting to show its age but the little touches they have are really enjoyable. The kids love visiting with Caesar, the parrot in the lobby. They serve wine, chex mix, sausage and cheese from 5-7 and then milk and cookies from 8-10 every night. This is a tradition for our family and we really enjoy it. The indoor and outdoor heated pool are fun. We prefer to stay in the tower suites that has two bedrooms, two bath and a murphy bed, kitchen and fireplace. For a family of 5 it gives us the privacy and room we need. We'll be back!
