"Fine"
Overall Score4.0/ 5
The hotel itself was fine. It was clean and the staff was very courteous. My only complaint is that I was trying to find a location close to the center of the Gatlinburg strip to be within walking distance of everything. I ask the clerk for the location of this hotel and all she could tell me was that is was close to the Aquarium. I thought that would be fine.That would put us on the edge of the strip. However, I did not think this hotel was close to the aquarium. That was a bad comparison. Red light one would have been a better choice. It was not within walking distance for me with my mother. We had to drive and find parking and that was not my intention. The clerks need to have a better knowledge of the location of the hotels when asked.
