Cleaner than some girls I've stayed in... The...

Idk what happened but it was great 2 years ago but after last visit most likely will never go back. Filthy, found stuff in room by precious guests. No maid service in room in 3 days. Had to get our own towels and linen from front desk clerk who was rude.

You are greeted with old lawn chairs and the neighbors nasty ashtrays, open the door and the room is dark. The table lamp did not work, stains on the pillow cases, old set-in stains on the tub, the furniture was tired looking and the back patio overlooking the lovely brook reeked of cigarette smoke. We called chain hotel and left...

The room smelt like smoke covered with febreze. There was a half used toilet paper. The sink and bathtub were gross and not cleaned. There were flies everywhere. It was gross and I would not recommend staying here. The service was rude when we asked for another room. And the second room we got was not as dirty but the...

My room was nicely renovated with a little rustic charm. The balcony over the "Brook" (really a River) was very relaxing. Weather was nice and the grounds were good for walking around and exploring. Not far from downtown but there was plenty of things to do nearby.

Fairly okay Resort for the money. The room we stayed in nothing was updated in what it looked like 30 plus years. Bathtub floor was yellow from age. Since we stayed in what it looked like the old part of the resort, there was no good clear passage to the swimming pool. The beds were not comfortable and pillows were...

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
We are City Close but Country Quiet. Brookside Resort is just 3 blocks from downtown Gatlinburg, 4/10 mile up on 321 at Light 3. When you're on the property, it feels like you're in the country yet a short walk to downtown. The Gatlinburg Trolley stops in front of the office. Most of our large rooms have private streamside balconies and wonderful amenities. Season after season, you will love coming back to Brookside Resort. We take great pride in Brookside Resort and in providing outstanding customer service. We offer a wide range of amenities right here on the grounds. Brookside has a basketball court, Shuffleboard, a sun deck, BBQ Grills, 2 outdoor pools, a "River Walk" path along the river. Brookside provides a free hot continental breakfast offering the traditional Southern "Biscuits & Gravy", "Teddy Bear" waffles, hot oatmeal with brown sugar & raisins, a variety of cold cereals, pastries, orange juice, milk and coffee are available. Brookside Resort was built in 1931, 3 years before the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was declared and was once considered one of Gatlinburg's premier hotels. Brookside Resort over the years, has been through many transitions. The new management of Brookside Resort has spent hundreds of thousands of dollars to bring back the exterior charm of Brookside Resort and now are facing the interior renovations with gusto and dedication. The towers now have 39" LED televisions, radio/alarms with phone docks, new carpeting and tiled foyers, Wi-Fi throughout the property, in-room safes, new linens, and many have remodeled bathrooms with much more to come. The staff at Brookside welcomes you to Gatlinburg!! ... more   less

“If you want to leave the curtains in your room open, I suggest asking for a room not on the ground floor. The front of my room overlooked the parking lot so anyone walking by or even driving by could see into my room if the curtains were opened. ”
