Good location

This hotel was conveniently located within walking distance of downtown Gatlinburg. Easy walk to restaurants and shopping. There was a large overflow parking lot out of our back balcony which did not make for a great view in the evening or at night. It could get a little noisy with car alarms going off and people being loud walking back to their cars. I prefer renting a cabin in the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge area instead of staying in a resort type of hotel in a location like this.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Great experience!

This was my first time staying at a Holiday Inn Resort and I loved it! I will definitely be staying at Smokey Mountain Resort as well as other Holiday Inn Resorts in the future. Great service, cleanliness, and atmosphere! Definitely recommend!

Yes, I recommend this property.

Disappointing Indoor Water Features

Traveling with two children the water play area and indoor pools were the determining factor in staying at this hotel. We were extremely disappointed to find that the water temperature was so cool that our youngest did not even want to get in the water and I could not blame him it was too cold for me. It wasn't just cool...it wasn't even enjoyable. To top it off I noticed some people in the outdoor pool and stuck my leg in to test the water...to my surprise it was considerably warmer in the outdoor pool but the air temperature was too cool to be swimming outside.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Service with a smile

We really enjoyed our stay and our grandson really enjoyed the indoor water park. We also enjoyed the convenient location to the local events. Add that to the great customer service and this was a great decision on our part. I will be recommending this to friends and family.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Short getaway

As a Spire member I expected better than a room with a balcony that overlooked a roll-off dumpster loaded with construction debris and smelly garbage.

No, I do not recommend this property.

Great setting and experience

Very nice setting and atmosphere at this resort. The bed might have been a touch too hard for us, but that might just be us. Son said the fold out couch was the best he's slept on. Really nice staff and great experience. I believe you will enjoy the place.

Yes, I recommend this property.

Best place to stay for a larger family if you want to walk to everything

The rooms here are huge and awesome. They can sleep at least 8 people and have full kitchens. You can also walk to almost everything in Gatlinburg. The new water park is great too.

Yes, I recommend this property.
