I stayed at EconoLodge for a convention that I was attending in Sevierville, and the reservation was made for me, so needless to say, my expectations were not high. However, the second we arrived, I was STUNNED!! This hotel was AMAZING!!
My prior expectations of EconoLodge were very low, but the property was gorgeous with the Little Pigeon River running behind, and ducks everywhere who were VERY friendly, and entertaining to watch and interact with. The indoor pools/hot tub/kid pool were beautiful! There is also on-site laundry and even an arcade!
I cannot say enough about the continental breakfast. They had everything from eggs, biscuits and gravy to cereal and everything in-between, as well as a beautiful dining area. For those of us who are discriminating among our soda brands, they have Pepsi AND Coca-Cola machines!! Also, they are only $1.50 for a bottle, which is the most reasonably priced soda I have ever experienced at a hotel chain.
The beds were wonderfully comfortable, the rooms were gorgeously updated with flat screen TV's, microwave, mini-fridge, and spacious bathroom!
The only reason I did not rate as a 5, the wireless is somewhat difficult to access, but it is available for free, so that's definitely a PLUS! Also, the fan in our bathroom wasn't working, but that was a VERY minor thing compared to our trip.
Definitely will return!!!
