“Nice Place/Good Location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 September 2010

Stayed over Labor Day. Easy walk to restaurants and attractions. Close to National Park.

Stayed in #107. No real complaints. We had a view of the Scottish Inn Motel. A pool or residential view room might be preferred by some people.

Washer/Dryer in room but you might want to bring some extra towels and a spatula.

Our room was fairly quiet but we could hear our upstairs neighbors TV one night. But sound proof hotel/condo rooms are hard to come by.

Nice front desk staff.

This unit was so comfortable and convenient! It made our stay in Gatlinburg an absolute delight! It was roomy enough for our family of four; we had adult space as well as room for the kids to play. The kitchen was fully appointed; there was plenty of closet & drawer space for our stuff; the staff at the condo was especially helpful. The parking was secure and convenient. Best of all, we were within walking distance of the "strip", and were able to get around by car and trolley easily too. The drip-drip-drip in the master shower/bath area was a minor annoyance, but my husband (the plumber) recommends that someone look into this. It could mean extensive water damage behind the walls if left too long.

My family and I had a unique experience by staying in two different units over the same vacation period. This review will cover #107 only (#405 will be reviewed separately, with photos).

Our stay in this unit was a one-day extension to an existing four-day reservation. The $149+tax rate was on the high end, but understandable given the holiday, short notice, and limited availability (100% occupancy!). The lower floors all have standard ceilings, not vaulted like the top floor, but they still feel open and spacious. Both bedrooms are adequately sized, and all the furniture is pretty nice--far better than you'd get in most hotel suites. Overall, it's a great bargain compared to traditional hotels...the only thing you're giving up is continental breakfast and daily maid service. The advantages of privacy, space, and full kitchen/dining amenities far outweigh the drawbacks.

Staff and common areas: Top notch! The condo building feels like an upscale hotel, with free covered parking, coffee in the mornings, seasonal decor, and a common/lounge area in the lobby. Staff members Sarah and Leah were very helpful and accommodating to all of our requests, including short-term luggage storage and replacement of a broken kitchen utensil. The excellent service we received overshadowed any of the shortcomings of an otherwise average room. Without them, this unit would have been three stars.

A very cozy setting for the winter holidays. Baskins Creek Condos are a half a mile just off the main street in Gatlinburg,Tn. Very quite and peaceful and yet close to every thing in town. Got out and walked around with ease. Major attractions were just a leisurely stroll away.Service was very good,and their advertisement for Xbox was too good to pass up. All in all a very wonderful Thanksgiving. Don't forget to stop off in Pidgeon Forge, and Sevierville. You won't be dissappointed.

Can't say enough nice things about Baskins Creek Condos. I stayed in unit #314 and have stayed previously in unit #214. Both units are ultra nice with great features for a family couple. The condos are perfectly situated between the quiet streams and mountains views but are within walking distance to The Village, Pancake Pantry, and downtown Gatlinburg. The rooms are GREAT with 2 bedrooms and 2 baths. The kitchens are great to cook breakfast, lunch or dinner in. The porches over look the pool and creek which provide relaxing nature music. The 3 tvs were perfect so that everyone could watch what they wanted without bothering the rest of the group. The fireplace was a nice bonus which my wife and I used to relax to at the end of the day after our child had gone to bed. Whether honeymooners, couples, or families this condo has it all! Not to mention they have over 200 movies to rent for $1/night which is great when just want to stay in. Ample covered parking made this a great all around vacation. As for my dealings with the front office (for which I had several occasions to talk with the), the front office staff was very helpful and full of southern hospitality. A must stay for anyone looking for a relaxing get-away.

We have stayed at Baskins Creek twice May 07 & May 08. Both times we had a great experience. The rooms were clean...the rooms are nice. I would recommend the pool view because if you get the mountain view...you get the surrondings below which is some nasty run down places. But the pool view is great. It was too cool for us to swim but we enjoyed hanging out around the pool area, very nice. It is a very short walk to the main drag there in Gatlinburg. So it was nice to park the car and walk to everything we needed. If you want to stay in a condo - in Gatlinburng with a short walk to downtown this is it! We were also able to rent videos downstairs in the lobby. The staff was very friendly!

The condos were built within the past two years and are very nice. Beds are sooo comfortable and there is plenty of room in a 3 bedroom. The gas fireplace in the main area kept us toasty, but not too warm. It was just right. The location is perfect. You can walk to "The Village" for breakfast or lunch at The Pancake Pantry, pick up donuts at The Donut Friar, stock up on taffy, a variety of hard candies and chocolate, as well as the best caramel apples I've found. There are also several places to shop. You can either drive to a lot a few blocks down - or walk from the condos. My only complaint about the place is that there are too many nik-naks sitting around. We've named it kudzu because there is a little something sitting everywhere that must be placed exactly where it was when you arrived. Aside from that, if you can afford to spend a little more, go for it!
