Happy 4th of July! Always seem to help the Americans celebrate their day! Off to ziplining through the Great Smoky Mountains. Beautiful views. Ziplining was a great experience! Met a guard chicken! Headed home for a nice simple dinner of grilled cheese sandwiches. Hit the spot! Spent the evening playing cards, competing against each other in the arcade, and soaking our aching bodies in the hot tub! What a great ...

... A for a restful holiday! Just heading off to the midnight July 4th parade. Interesting parade...lots of coin tossing onto the road - kids going nuts, empty schoolbus, lots of military, and...an 'interesting' ride home! Looking forward to another adventure ...

... first traffic jam in Corbin, Kentucky. An accident caused a 45 minute delay. Our next traffic jam also delayed us 45 minutes in Lexington. Here there were 5 accidents all within a 4 mile span of highway. Eventually we made it through. Kylee did well on the trip home and Kaleb was awesome in the backseat, feeding her and keeping her occupied. We arrived home at 10:30, about two and a half hours behind our schedule but we made it home ...

... every minute in the pool. Brycen, Jayce and Kaleb had fun jumping in the pool and going down the water slide. We came back and started a late lunch, early dinner meal of ham, corn, green beans and mashed potatoes. It was a pretty good meal. About an hour later we were driving into Gatlinburg for the last time. This would be the first time we were going down for the evening. Once we made it down, we ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Econo Lodge Inn & Suites Gatlinburg

    Excellent stay, loved it

    from

    We were very happy with our room. ours was on the 2 nd floor. it was very clean and spacious. Also had a small refrigerator. Very well located, central but quiet a couple of blocks back from the main street. Staff was very friendly , helpful and very informative. They also provided a voucher for the breakfast at one of the local restaurants which was coffee, milk, juice, biscuit and sausage gravy.

    Clean, Comfy and Convenient!

    from

    The hotel is located very close to many shopping and entertainment areas-The Ripley's Believe It or Not Museum is easily within walking distance, so you will be very close to lots of great activities.

    Great room for a great price!

    from

    We stayed at this hotel in June 2006. It is in a great location right behind the space needle and right down the street from Ripleys & the chair lift. It is a slight uphill walk off the parkway but I was 5 1/2 months pregnant and I didn't have any problem. The hotel is 2 seperate buildings. The front desk clerk was very nice and knew alot about the area. Our room was on the 2nd floor & was really nice. It had a 2 story vaulted ceiling and it had obviously been remodeled recently. The room, bedding, and carpeting were really clean & there was no smell in the room. Everything was in good working condition. The only things that I can say are negatives are that the parking lot & garage are small and fill quickly in the evenings. Our room also had a balcony but the view was of the back of a church and someones yard. The toilet was too close to the wall. I do think that the positives totally outweigh the negatives and I would stay here again. As a matter of fact I believe this will be our place that we stay from now on. We have stayed at several places in Gatlinburg & for the price, location, and overall qualities of the hotel it is the best we have been to.

    Great Location

    from

    This hotel has been recently renovated and it was in pristine condition. The room was large and very clean. It is located just 1 block from the center of town so it was great for walking the streets of Gatlinburg. Will absolutely stay again. Oh, and the rates were great (make reservations from the Econolodge website for the best rates on the net).

    NIce Bargain Hotel

    from

    Room was quiet, clean and inexpensive. Location was right off the strip. Free breakfast was a little blah. Would stay here again.

    Never Got to Stay!!

    from

    I was appalled, simply appalled! I was treated like a criminal! I made a reservation for one night in a highly visited resort area expecting to have a room when I got there, but what happened was that I was stuck with NO room. The Operations Manager who was manning the front desk said my credit card had been declined and they had no more rooms. I knew my card would not be declined because I had just used it and after arguing with him for a minute he threatened to call the police on me! I was shocked at his demeanor!! I left and called my credit card people to find out that the reason my card was declined was because they input the wrong expiration date. You would think an establishment would try the card twice to be sure it was not input correctly, but I guess that never crossed their minds. I was also told that the charge had just been put through again and went through so I returned to the hotel and was told that was not true even though my credit card rep was on the phone with me at that very minute telling me it was true. Long story short, I was sent away with the worst treatment I have ever had from any hotel in the world! I went across the street to a MicroteI and had a great experience and encountered another couple at their front desk who had just had a similar experience at the Econo Lodge and were looking for alternate accommodations as well. I complained to the Econo Lodge Corp who forwarded my complaint on to the Lodge in question who sent me a letter offering me a 25% discount on my next stay... what a insult! And the letter was from the Operations Manager who was so very nasty to me in the beginning. Even though this Econo Lodge might be a nice hotel, two ladies were left on the street with no hotel room for the night due to their mistake which they refused to acknowledge. If I were you I would check, recheck and double check my reservation before and when you get to Gatlinburg. Their Operations Manager is not a nice person to deal with.

    Loved it!!!!!!!

    from

    My family stayed at this hotel in May and loved every aspect of our stay. The rooms have just been remodeled and they are exceptionally clean. The location is perfect, just about 50 yards from the main strip in Gatlinburg. Also a very quiet location. I recommend this hotel to anyone going to gatlinburg.

    Not to mention it is very affordable compared to other hotels in the area.

    Pleased with Value

    from

    We stayed here from Sept 23-25. The room was very large and nice. There was a queen bed, king, and sleeper sofa and hot tub in the room. Unfortunately no balcony and the fireplace wasn't working. Room also smelled like smoke. But for the price, great buy! Would stay here again in a heartbeat. Great location, one block from Ripley's believe it or not!

    Okay for the price

    from

    It was okay for the price. We stayed in a 2 queen room. Shower and bath were small & uncomfortable. Cleaning of rooms need to improve. We had to ask for soap and towels. They were not left on the first two days. Front desk was excellent.

    Nice stay, roomy and family oriented, great price!

    from

    Our family with two teenagers stayed a few nights here in July 2005. We opted for the suite, which consisted of a huge, single room with fireplace. We had two, queen sized beds with a sofa bed. The facilities were OK, clean. We paid $89 night, with light continental breakfast. Nice pool and rockers to cool off. Nice family type place, especially for the money. Just one block off main strip, across from space needle. Very quiet and everything was within walking distance. Would stay here again.
