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.
Tucked away haven
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.
So peaceful, beautiful setting, lovely balcony view, cozy room
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.
Loved this hotel!!!
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!
Better than most hotels in Gatlinburg
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.
Thanksgiving In Gatlinburg
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!
Wonderful place to stay!!!
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.
Best Place to Stay in Gatlinburg
I have stayed at the FI Suites in Gatlinburg many times. Trolley stop right outside the door. Mini Golf in front of hotel. Great Breakfast. Indoor pool and outdoor pool with nice slide. My wife, daughter and I love this place. You will to. Nice Mini Mart next door to property. You can't go wrong.

... floods and devastation. A lot has happened while we've been away but we have been proud of the way our state has rebounded and are moving forward.
We're excited to be getting home tomorrow. We’ve been very fortunate through all our travels and have enjoyed sharing our adventures with our friends and family. We’re glad I wrote the blog because it’s already hard to remember some of the names of places we’ve been!
... the 25th year of the German reunification (1989). They were expecting thousands of people in Frankfurt and we actually ( on Saturday night) watched the major event on the TV. Dinner was at a very small local eatery where we had pork and potatoes ( of course) and wine. We sat at long wooden table with benches..family style. A neighborhood German place full of locals and fun to experience. We returned "home" and settled down for the night.
... YEEUCH! The rain was so bad at times I couldn't see a thing and found myself peering around my screen looking for the white line on the side of the road just to see where we were headed. It was not a comfortable ride at all. As Jude said, we used our imagination on what it would have looked like, especially in the fall. This is a ride I would live to come back and do. Of note, at the foot of the Cherohala, there is a visitor ...
August 21st – day 109
Today we drove through Gatlinburg and
Pigeon Forge on the way to Maryville TN. Gatlinburg was too commercial
for us plus no place to park a car let along an RV. Pigeon Forge has
Dollywood so we drove past and took photos. Then onto Maryville where
we spent time with Heather and her kids. Heather and I “met” 15
years ago on a scrapbooking forum. We were all Mums, just ...
... 24 hours though so we may have been wanting to buy
milk at 3am and it may have been taking us a realllllly long time to
decide if there were any other grocery items we needed to add to our
shopping list?? As it turned out, we didn't get disturbed but Ben and
I didn't sleep especially well that night, both waiting for a knock
at the door.
