We were happy with our stay last week at Zoder's, everything was decorated with July 4 red white and blue. We were glad to see that the bridge had been repaired the leads across the creek and everything had been spruced up from our last visit. The ground were nice as we have come to expect from ths grand old...

Our first time in Gatlinburg, after a 12 hour drive through the night, we arrived at Zoders Inn. We had booked our room in April for our fourth of July week long vacation. Our room was ready at 3 pm as agreed. The staff was friendly while we waited to check in. A woman in the rec room serving drinks...

Located at the beginning of the strip in GB. The plus is you don't have to fight traffic to go to Pigeon Forge. The minus is you have to walk a pretty good way to get to the main part of the strip and it is uphill going there. There is a trolley but always a wait involved with that....

We took our family, 2 11yr olds and a 2 yr old. Stayed in the Courtyard suite. Staff was SUPER friendly when I checked in. And upon arrival in the room I was shocked at how HUGE it was! We did have 2 dead bugs that greeted us. NOT cockroaches, they are a beetle. I called down to make sure...

I love the Zoder's Inn. I love to sit on the balcony form my room and listen the creek cunning under. The indoor pool is nice. great location. Free cookies, milk, and wine is offered every night and the fitness room is pretty good. Staff is friendly and eager to help.

Growing up, my family took me on frequent weekend trips to Gatlinburg, TN. More times than not, we stayed at Zoders Inn. (We stayed here a minimum of 3 times a year for as long as I can remember.) I have stayed in every room type they offer, in fact I used to consider this place one of my most...

uly 2, 2014 Dear Aston757: Thank you for your comments. I would like to address the issues you have written. The room that you had reserved was a non smoking room. The confirmation letter that we send out does state “if you are smoker, you must book a smoking room.”. This documentation is due to the fact when other guests...

We've been going to Gatlinburg since the 70's and have never stayed here for some reason. Well trust me, we WILL be staying here again next year. I LOVED the balcony over the stream.

Very pleased with the room. Disappointed that the townhouse we stayed in wasn't on the creek. But room was clean and comfortable. Wasn't able to use many of the amenities but seem to have several to choose from. Found it entertaining that you need to be warned not to feed the bears in the parking lot.

After reading the good reviews, I was looking forward to checking this place out. We checked into a room with a fireplace and hot tub. What did it for me was the musty smell. I couldn't get past it, I tried. The carpet was wet around the hot tub so we promptly told the front desk. They apologized and moved...

Great view of the river. Loved the babbling of water over the rocks, sat on the balcony for hours. Close to Trout house restaurant. Easy walk to the center of activities. Clean room, friendly staff, fair prices, very accommodating for motorcycles.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
This place is temporarily closed due to renovation. Located on the main parkway in Gatlinburg, Zoder's Inn & Suites is the perfect place to stay for singles, couples & families. Zoder's Inn, secluded as it may be, is located in downtown Gatlinburg just four blocks from the main shopping area. The beautiful Roaring Fork Creek runs directly through our property and provides a great sense of peace and tranquility. Our six quiet acres are outside of the hustle and bustle, but still convenient to anything you may have on your itinerary. We are also on the Gatlinburg Trolley Route if you wish to relax and soak in the sights of downtown. We hope to see you and look forward to your stay at Zoder's Inn & Suites! We are a smoke free property!! New for 2016, we have a new pavilion for guest use. ... more   less
