We stay in this resort a couple of times a year. We decided to try there newest 2 bedroom condo. Crazy and innovative stuff in rooms. Heated towel rack, TV in bathroom vanity mirror, just unique! Super clean in rooms and grounds. Still some noise due to roof top fire damage from the big fire that swept through Gatlinburg. Staff...

I loved this hotel! This was the best the vacation ever. The tub in our room was so amazing and huge! Wash and dryer in the room was nice so that we didnt return home with clothes to wash. The pool was fantastic and we really loved it.

The new condo rooms are really nice. We stayed in a two beds room and it was excellent. They have also added a new indoor water park. It's not real big, but it is perfect for younger kids. The location is perfect for visiting Gatlinburg's shops. We were concerned about the effects of the recent fires, but the town was...

We had the chance to stay on a 3 BR signature villa. Very confortable and with a lot of nice amenities. The staff is very friendly. Please visit Dixie Stampede is a must dinner show. They are also places inside the park like Cades Cove or Newfound Gap.

Holiday Inn Vacations property. Beautiful building, close enough to walk to town (and save at least $5 parking). There were four of us, and we stayed in a one-bedroom unit. Full refrigerator and stove in kitchen. A little small for 4 adults, but OK for short stay. Nice furnishings. Very helpful staff. We were able to see a 2 BR...

We booked two nights through the IHG - the room was OK, aging a bit but at least is was spacious. On arrival our safe was not working and the bin in the kitchen was full to over flowing. I called the front desk on three occasions to have both of these issues resolved, with the last time being told...

We booked our room 8 months in advance & didn't get a view of the ball drop on New Year's Eve. Had to go out in the windy cold on a balcony to see it. The front desk noted the rooms are assigned two days prior to arrival. Before checking in Friday, was having a bad day because of having...
