Hotel a reminder of days gone by

Pros: Location and charm.
Location: Downtown near everything.
This hotel was built in 1937 and retains much of the charms of days gone by. The hotel is in the middle of downtown Gatlinburg. There is free parking. The staff is very friendly. Many famous persons have stayed here including at least one President.

Nostalgic Gatlinburg!!

Pros: The location
Cons: I would not change anything, it is so quaint and historic.
Location: The hotel is located right next to the Sky Lift. Several wonderful restaurants close by, Blaines was fantastic, Park Grill, excellent steak!!
Takes you back in time, very clean and close to shopping and restaurants. Or if you prefer, just sit and rock on the front porch, very relaxing. The staff was extremely friendly and helpful, and the breakfast was wonderful, everything you might want. We will be back

Right in the heart of Gatlinburg.

Close to all attractions. Free parking, super friendly staff, good breakfast, clean room. It is an old hotel, so there is a slight musty smell. Our first room was very musty smelling, didn't want to stay in it for a week, but staff switched our room first thing in the morning (they were full night we arrived). It was just my daughter and I (easy going ppl) may not be good for picky, germaphobes. Not because its not clean, its just old. We were very happy here, would def stay again.

Great hotel in the middle of Gatlinburg

We chose the hotel for its close proximity to everything and we were not disappointed. The Gatlinburg Inn was built in 1937. The character, and charm of the hotel are second to none in the area. We stayed in room #127. The room was clean and updated with a new bathroom. The staff was outstanding and always ready to assist you with directions or suggestions for activities. The breakfast provided every morning was good as well, with many choices. All in all a great stay.
