Last morning in the mountains. Open up the patio door to soak up the fresh mountain air and sun. Off to a pancake breakfast. Lineup out the door...Pancake Pantry...the place to be! Walking through the Gatlinburg town reminded me of Bath...quaint and charming. Cobblestone ...
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 ...
Packed and ready! It's always about the food! Long drive and lots of July 4th traffic. Made it to Gatlinburg...nestled in the Great Smoky Mountains. Beautiful! Had to have a cup of chai when we arrived and some pizza for dinner. Good food, great company! Thank you ...
... out of a parking lot, never looking to her left in which I was coming. I barely was able to hit the break. Thank goodness I have a good habit of checking my mirrors often. I swerved to avoid her and luckily there was no other vehicle in the other lane. Finally, after 45 minutes or so, we made it to I-75. The traffic was heavy most of the trip home. Rain poured down for most of the morning causing us to go slower than we wanted. We ...
... mission came up short. Before leaving Kaleb spent his vacation money on those old fashion photos. He really wanted to do this so bad. He was super excited and happy his photos came out good. Kylee stayed awake the entire time we were in town only falling asleep once we were in the car around 10:30 pm. That is a late night for our baby. We arrived back at the rental and started packing up to leave in the ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Fairfield Inn & Suites Gatlinburg North
Once was enough
I found the hotel to pricey for what you get..room wise.
I was not happy at all with the air cond. in the room...
very musty smelling, and could not be used..
And room size was small.Also upon checkin.. rate was higher than booked-had to have a manager override.
The staff was not very helpful when asked about getting around, was trying to get a feel for the area having not been there before...
was told breifly about a trolly to Aquarium..nothing more..
Once I figured out trolly system...that was great.
Outdoor pool-very nice..indoor pool-small.
I would proberly not stay here again.
My Family and I spent one night at Fairfield north in Gatlinburg in early July 2005.Overall it was a very pleasant stay, only wish it could have been a little longer. the Fairfield north is right at the edge of town, so while you are still close, you cut down on a lot of the noise of downtown. The entire place was immaculate from the grounds, to the lobby and pools and the rooms, it seems the staff takes a lot of pride in keeping the place nice. The outdoor pool with mushroom and waterslide is loads of fun but the water was still a bit cool for july. The indoor hut tub is really nice, especially early in the morning when it is vitually private. The continential breakfast is very good with homemade waffles and several pastries, yogurt and other selections. only a few minor complaints, the indoor pool is really much too tiny to add any excitement to your stay. The motel is built on a hill, so the creek behind the premises, is really hard to appreciate and only a handful of rooms have balconies. We had a marriot point discount, so we stayed fairly reasonable otherwise they could come down on their rates just a bit. We reserved a non-smoking room and it had a stong smell of smoke but we were moved within moments, with no fuss or trouble. I would recommend this establishment highly, beds could be a little softer but then I like a really soft bed. Take your family here, if your vacationing for a while, you won't be disappointed.
I stayed here 3 nights and I'll never forget it. I needed to get away and just refocus and clear my mind. I am a middle aged lady, so as I knew I was to be alone, I wanted to feel safe yet not in an out the way location! I found it! I stayed in a immaculate clean room with a nice balcony overlooking a clear trickling creek. I could watch the tram as it gently glided up the mt passed my balcony across the clear creek, close but not too close. I was surrounded with large and tiny trees on the the creekside. It was private yet in the middle of everything. Everyday I awoke feeling rested and so at peace. I would take my time, shower and get dressed. I would then enjoy myself as I strolled along the the creek, where the sun was shimmering down thru the small empty spaces between the leaves. I ate and then I checked out many of the intresting shops up and down the streets of Gatlinburg.I found beautiful quilts and dainty stationary, that I used to write my thoughts upon. I found a little shop that had the most romantic scents. In the evening, I would settle by the fireplace as I watched the twinkling sparkle on the room as I ran my blubbly jacuzzi tub full, then was carried away as I soaked every musle in my body. I finally dried my relaxed body, and put on my purple silky nightie, deciding to have a small glass of wine, before snuggling in between the extra crisp, clean white sheets. I slept like a newborn baby, and came away with an new rediscovered self being.
We stayed here in January 2005. After driving through the spring break atmosphere of downtown Gatlinburg, we were quite pleased that our hotel was on the edge of town. The Fairfield has a very attractive exterior. It looks to be brand new, but made to look a bit rustic. There is a pool with a waterslide in front, not to mention the indoor pool and hot tub. On one side of the hotel is Damon's, a sports grill, and on the other is a mini-golf course. The inside of the Fairfield is spotless! Our room was small, but for $50.00 a night, no complaints! The place was full when we were there, but we were able to get a room with 2 queen beds. Again, the room was spotless and the bathroom was immaculate and spacious. The breakfast in the morning was also great! Pancakes, waffles, cereal, and coffee were plentiful when I arrived. The trolley also stops at this hotel. For 25 cents per ride, you never have to drive anywhere! Not only was this the least expensive hotel in the city, it was downright the newest and most luxurious. For our next trip to Gatlinburg we will stay nowhere but the Fairfield!
Nicest place in Gatlinburg
far away from town. TINY indoor pool. New construction and nice inside with clean rooms and bathrooms. Outdoor area has pool and waterslide with wading area (closed in winter). When breakfast food runs out it's GONE so go early. Trolley stop at hotel, but Gatlinburg Trolley is a pathetic joke.
As a native Knoxvillian I think Gatlinburg in general is a tourist trap and most every hotel is run down and needs serious refurbishment. However, if you choose to throw your money away in this town then this is the best hotel to stay in while doing it!
We stayed at the Fairfield Inn for 1 night in January 2005. The location is excellent -- close enough to the attractions, but not so close that you feel congested. We booked the room through the hotel's website, and requested a crib. We arrived about 2 hours before check in time, but the room was ready. They had even put a crib in the room already--we've never had that happen before, despite always rerquesting a crib. The hotel seems newer and cleaner than most in Gatlinburg. The staff was very responsive to our requests. The steak retaurant next door can deliver food to your room in 15 minutes. There's a nice muti-disc CD player connected to the TV. The breakfast was pretty good, not outstanding. The only disappointment was that our "king suite" was really just a large room. There is a separate sleeping area and sitting area, but there's no door separating them. Will probably stay there again.
Just returned from the Thanksgiving holidays in Gatlinburg where we also had a family reunion. Regular rooms were small but all were very clean with plenty of clean towels daily. Three of us shared a suite, and pillows, sheets, etc. were not supplied for the sleeper sofa, despite our request to housekeeping, so we made do. Breakfast was the typical fare and okay - but the coffee is atrocious; and once the donuts, muffins, etc. ran out, they wern't replenished. This left those who were latecomers with nothing but cereal even though they came to the lobby to eat during the serving time. Since they knew they would be having full house, ordering extra food would've been the way to go. The rooms have excellent soundproofing, and the cable selection is also very good. My only real complaint is that some of the houskeeping staff (the suprevisors) seemed VERY annoyed whenever we asked them for something, or when cleaning up after breakfast, etc. Front desk staff were very professional and helpful. Hope they fine tune a few things - this could be one of GB's outstanding hotels if they do.
Great place to stay!
We decided to visit Gatlinburg on the spur of the moment at the end of our vacation to the East TN area. We checked out 3 hotels on the main street in Gatlinburg (that were dated and shabby) before we found Fairfield Inn & Suites on the edge of town. It was a great place to stay - a few blocks away from all the crowds, but still close enough to catch a trolley to all of the attractions. The service was excellent and the rooms were new and clean. We had a suite and it was very comfortable and quiet. We would definitely stay here again!
This hotel was wonderful! We were suppose to stay at another hotel in Gatlinburg but when we arrived it was a dump. We then looked around and found the Fairfield Inn and Suites. We absolutely loved this place. The pool was very nice and my kids loved the waterslide. The rooms were spotless and very pretty. The free continental breakfast was great. They offered bagels, toast, muffins, pastries, cereals, juices, coffee and milk. We had a very scenic view from our room. Hotel staff was very friendly and helpful. This hotel was not in the middle of downtown Gatlinburg so you could not really walk to everything but there was a trolley stop in front of the hotel. There was also a Ripleys minature golf course right next to the hotel. It was pricey but very fun. The hotel was located right at the beginning of Gatlinburg on the closest side to Pigeon forge. Great hotel to stay in. You won't be disappointed.
