            The lodge had a nice pool.

            The staff wasn't very friendly or helpful. We had a house keeper enter our room when we placed a do not disturb sign on the door. The carpet was nasty and we had to wear our shoes the entire time we were in the room. The room wasn't the best kept as far as cleanliness goes. I feel like the price for this hotel was a bit expensive for what we actually received. I would not recomment this lodge to my family or friends.

          • Older travelers
            4.6

            Nothing. The website and info was not correct at all. Would not say there again.

            No complimentary breakfast. Sink didn't work. Beds were terrible. Pool dirty. Ants in the room.

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            The ability to walk to downtown Gatlinburg

            Small rooms and there was a crack in the floor of the bathtub.

          • Family with children
            9.6

            My favorite thing about the hotel was the fabulous indoor pool.

            There needs to be more parking.

          • Family with children
            4.2

            They provided plenty of coffee. I drink several pots a day.

            Not at all what the pictures showed online. Many days towels were not in our rooms. My inlaws found a used condom in a drawer with towels and an unidentified stain on the floor. Rooms were not very clean or updated. However, the service staff who cleaned the rooms was wonderful!

          • Couple
            5.0

            The location was pretty good- within walking distance of the strip.

            The balcony was too small to fit a chair with the view of an abandoned hotel. In addition, the bathtub looked as if it was rotting away and hadn't been cleaned.

          • Group of friends
            8.0

            I liked the balconysetting overlooking a smallcreek which seemed to be excellently maintained.

          • Single
            5.0

            I went to dollywood, will never stay there again

            Room smelled of storng cleaner, poor water pressure, two of the ice machines didnt work, walpaper was peeling off walls, bathroom in seroius need of updating, bed hard as a rock

          • Older travelers
            8.2

            Our conformation stated we got a free continental breakfast. The hotel did not offer this, but when we showed the copy of the conformation they not only honored it they gave us the full breakfast. We were very pleased.

          • Family with children
            7.4

            The indoor pool was interesting & kept the kids occupied.

            The room needs some "spicing up" kinda old like....

          • Older travelers
            8.8

            The river right off the balcony was a wonderful sound to fall asleep with.

            Requested a non smoking room but was given a smoking room. However,it was not terribly obvious.

          • Family with children
            4.6

            A place to sleep after a long car trip

            Not unclean, or dirty room, just grungy...need to replace tile, shower head was loose, no stopper for the bath. Was not a Double room...just a double bed.

          • Family with children
            4.2

            The rooms were very outdated. Pillows had stains on them. Light between the beds didn't work. Carpet, chairs in the room were dirty. The chairs on the "private balcony" had missing strips so your bottom fell through if you sat in them. We had booked the room for two nights, but only stayed one night due to the condition of the place. The pictures they post must be from when it first opened. We will not be returning.

          • Family with children
            4.6

            Ants were really bad there all over are tables and even in the bed was very unhappy with that when we called front desk they said there was nothing they could do and just gave us a can of bug spray.

          • Older travelers
            5.0

            the indoor pool

            The room was old and not updated at all. The bathroom had light that did not go on. There was no fan in the bathroom and mostly no bath tub. the counter space was almost non exsistent. When we walked in the room there was a very heavy smell of mildew or moisture. Not pleasant. The staff was nice and the restaurant gal was sweet. Good home cooking. Jacuzzi was dirty. Maids brought us extra towels when we asked and another pillow. We wanted another pillow but none where available? For the amount of time we stayed in the room it was ok.
