While this is definitely an older motel, it is clean and comfortable. It is located on a back street in Gatlinburg, which to me, is a great plus. Gatlinburg itself is an insane place with all its crazy dinner shows and tchotchke shops. And in summer, the main drag is bumper to bumper with traffic. This little motel is owned by the grandson of one of the original settlers of this area. See the Bales farm on the Smoky Mountain NP Roaring Fork motor trail. Wifi was fine, more stations than I expected on the TV, and there was a frig and microwave in the room. I'll stay here again. Highly recommend.
