We stayed here for a timeshare presentation trip from 28 February to 4 March. The Festival of Lights runs through the end of February, and this is a must see. The whole town is lit up like Christmas. The staff was very friendly and welcoming, and the resort was conveniently located. Just a few minutes of walking took you down...

We traded into this resort via RCI. Although off season, we certainly enjoyed getting away from the subfreezing temps and deep snowcover of home for a while. We had a very nice 2 BR unit (looked just like the pictures on the TripAdvisor page). Room was clean and up to date. Security was very good with entrance to the elevator...

My husband and I stayed at the hotel over the weekend; it was conveniently located within walking distance to everything downtown.

Hello Trippdaddy, I am very sorry that you experienced the small water leak, caused from the guest on the floor above you overfilling their tub, during your stay. I am really confused as to why you rated our service so low. As soon as you made my team aware of the issue they responded immediately. Tyler our night security offered...

Reviewed 23 February 2014

By listing this time share club with other hotels is a true disservice. The first issue is that they do not have daily housekeeping. This was never made clear. The time share does supply towels and sheets, however these are not changed or cleaned during your stay. You are expected to wash and dry these items yourself. Second is there...

Mark N, Please review the conformation provided at the time of booking, on the internet, it clearly states that we do not offer daily linen and towel exchanges as there is 6 sets provided in our 1 bedroom units and 10 sets in our 2 bedroom units. With that said if you would have made us aware that you wanted...

We loved our recent stay in a 2 Bedroom. The awesome service and location make this the perfect place to stay in Gatlinburg. You can also purchase tickets for pretty much anything in town at the resort, and they are cheaper than buying them onsite at the venues. You simply can not beat the value of staying here.
