My husband and I attended a timeshare meeting and got a tour of the Gatlinburg resort. The resort was absolutely beautiful and we did actually consider purchasing a timeshare until our sensibility kicked in. We both did the math and it just wasn't feasible. After a few more attempts and a disgruntled salesman finally accepted "no" as our answer, we...

The check in process was marred by a hard sell to purchase check in only deals for shows and attractions. The staff was so insistent they neglected to give any parking instructions. The rooms are spacious and the beds are comfortable. The down side is that when I wiped up water that escaped the shower curtain with a towel it...

I'll start by saying that we are not picky travelers. We need 3 bedrooms, clean, kitchen, comfortable beds, close to fun things to do. This property fit all of our expectations. This is our second stay here and we enjoyed both trips. Yes there was some exterior work being done but I think that's awesome that the hotel is investing...

The staff was friendly until I turned down the vacation club tour. I was not at all impressed with the Hotel. I have stayed at many Holiday Inn properties and this is the first that did not offer coffee in the lobby. After a long ride a welcome cup of coffee would have been great. I had to walk a...

We're sorry to hear you were disappointed with the services at Smoky Mountain Resort. It's our mission to be sure that our guests are comfortable and receive outstanding service. Because we're a vacation ownership resort, our owners ultimately decide on the amenities and services we provide as shared costs. Currently, the HOA has not elected to include the costs of...

We stayed two nights in a one bedroom villa and had a great time visiting Gatlinburg. The one bedroom was very spacious with a balcony overlooking the street. The staff were very friendly and helpful. Check in and out was a breeze.
