Great Place to Stay in Gatlinburg Tennessee

Jul 13th, 2019

We just returned home from a week at the Bearskin Lodge. One of the nicest hotels I have stayed in. The rooms were clean, lots of towels. Staff made you feel very welcome every time they saw you. Location is excellent. We walked to everything in Gatlinburg from the hotel. And, if you go to the right when you leave the front entrance and walk a couple of blocks, you are at the entrance to the National Park and there is a hiking trail right there. We had a great week and want to return to the area again sometime, I will definitely be booking in here again. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Sadly disappointed

Jul 13th, 2019

We visited last night and we disappointed. 16 years ago my husband and I stayed here for our honeymoon and it was great, last night not so much. The first room we were given had stains in the sheets and pillow cases, a lot of dust and a water bottle left over from another guest. The young man at the front desk was very kind and moved us to another room. While the second one was considerably cleaner there was a. Lack ring in the toilet, the room had a strange smell and the sheets felt like it had soap residue from the laundry on them. The breakfast was okay, the orange had a funny after taste but the muffins were AMAZING! One of two elevators was broken and the working elevator was very slow. They have updated the hotel but the whole place feels like it needs a top to cleaning. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Don't let The pic foo ya

Jul 10th, 2019

We paid for 3 nights if I had not paid for three nights already I would be leaving. Nothing we thought it was. If you looking for a QUIET place this is NOT it!! Yes there's a river behind it do you like sitting on your patio looking at everybody else in the hotel behind you lsitting on theirs looking at you. I have hair and black mold in my shower. There's still only 1 elevator working. Thebreafast is mediocre at best. Forget about the pool area its a complete joke!! Save your money and go elsewhere!! This was supposed to be the big bang for the end our road trip I'm soooo disappointed. My son even has expressed his disappointment. Wish we would have never left Asheville....85.10 a night beautiful views....QUIET....amazing breakfast....and VERY VERY clean. Lesson learned 1st pic the view off our patio the file was too big to include the river the river sound is nice if you can get passed all the road noise and your backside neighbors looking at you TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

The breakfast was not good at all. It really didn’t excite my family at all. They went very cheap on it. Cereal and premise breakfast sandwiches do not make things good. Then a bowl of yogurt isn’t what I call breakfast. They need waffles, sausage, eggs or something. The room is very clean, they changed the sheets when requested do to my son getting sick. The only other down fall the water takes over 45 mins to get warm. Would have to turn it on before you wanted to shower and just let it run. TRIPADVISOR.COM USER

Slightly disappointed

Jul 4th, 2019

We stayed here for 2 nights. It’s a great location if you want to be within walking distance to restaurants and attractions. One elevator was out of order. After getting into our room and starting to unpack, my 6 year old saw something right underneath the edge of the couch and out of curiosity with just being a 6 year old he put his foot under there and pulled it out. Imagine our surprise when he pulled out a pair of white lace women’s undies! The room had been cleaned because we had clean sheets and towels but this had been missed for sure! It wouldn’t take a minute to run a swiffer duster under there! There was also a shiny substance on the floor between the beds that looked like something had been spilled. We were compensated for our findings, but after that we were afraid to open or look under anything else. Location great, staff nice, cleanliness needs to be worked on!! TRIPADVISOR.COM USER
