    Historical Traveler Reviews Greystone Lodge at the Aquarium Gatlinburg

    Very Dirty Room


    The Greystone Lodge was in a good location in Gatlinburg. Our room was very dirty upon arrival and was never properly cleaned. The bathroom mirror and floors were never touched. The sink looked like it got swiped over. We requested a handicap room and we were placed way up on a hill and had to walk a lot further than people on ground level. We didn't understand this system. We had a wonderful trip but were very disappointed with the cleanliness of our hotel room.

    Pass the Greystone up!


    I heard some great things about the Greystone so we decided to book a couple nights stay and I have to say I was highly dissapointed and we definitely check out early! We hardly complain but I figured these opinions are not doing this hotel justice!

    The hotel looks wonderful from the outside and the reception area is so neatly decorated, it wasn't until we got into our room when we figured out what we got ourseleves into! The room smelled musty like mold and mildew had settled in, which was pretty evident when looking at the brown stained bath tub. We were pleased to see some local restaraunt guides that had a local phone number list to figure out what food was served but when we noticed that we were charged for LOCAL calls, we were completely disturbed! Breakfast is an absolute joke in this hotel even if you are there first thing, and don't bother stepping into the ice cold pool unless you are trying out for a spot in the polar bear swim club. One nice thing I have to mention is the beautiful brook and the closeness to the trolley stop, but trust me Greystone is in need of some major restoring and if you are allergic to mold bring your benadryl!

    Greystone Lodge one of the better accomodations


    We have stayed at the Greystone Lodge in Gatilinburg, TN 2 times in the last year and a half. As a frequent visitor to the area we find the Greystone Lodge to be clean and comfortable and in an excellent location for exploring the town. We have stayed in many other hotels in Gatlinburg and found the Greystone lodge to be one of the best.

    Just Average


    My husband and I stayed at the Greystone Lodge last weekend. Unlike the other reviews, we were not very pleased. It IS in a great location. That is why we booked it. Be aware that this hotel has two buildings. The one we stayed in did not have a nice creek view. Our view was of a mostly dry creek bed with standing pools of stagnant water. To top it off there was trash in the water. The bathroom was really old. Our maid left a half eaten piece of gooey candy on the nightstand. When my husband called down to the desk to get it cleaned up, he was told "someone would be up right away." No one ever came. We will not be returning to the Greystone Lodge at the Aquarium.

    Excellent Location


    We recently stayed at the Greystone Lodge at the Aquarium. This will be my second time staying here. The best thing about this hotel is the location. It is directly on the strip, and sits right by a stop light. This is perfect as you can easily turn right or left out of the hotel, which is HARD to do in several other places on the strip. The rooms are a good size and the staff is very friendly. The continental breakfast is excellent and greatly appreciated. The only thing that we didn't like was that up above the door on the window, some people had carved their name very big in the plastic covering the window. Kinda trashy-looking. It is possible that this wasn't noticed by the staff as it wouldn't cost much to replace. That is obviously very minor-we stayed in the part of the hotel closest to the road. I would recommend that anyone stay here-most likely I will be back in the future.

    Greystone is relaxing


    We loved the Greystone Lodge. Had a riverview room and it was so relaxing sitting out there listening to the river. The room was very clean. I would definetly stay there again.

    Home away from home


    We *love* staying at the Greystone! If you've ever stood in line at one of the popular pancake houses, you'll appreciate how much valuable shopping time the free continental breakfast saves you. We visit in the late fall, so an indoor, heated pool would be wonderful, but, it's a luxury I can live without.

    Greystone is good


    we stayed at the greystone lodge last april and thought it was very nice. the rooms are spacious and clean. it is next to the aquarium and within walkin distance to downtown area. the rates are good. i would recommend this motel to anyone.

    Location, Location, Location


    Stayed here July 17-20. The motel is located right next to the aquarium, just behind the Mexican restaurant. It was a great location, because you are off the main road which is very busy. But, you are close enough to walk to almost everything. The continental breakfast was good, but get there early to avoid the long lines that form. The rooms are good size, and they are very clean. Housekeeping is excellent. All other employees were very nice, and courteous. We would recommend staying here to anyone interested in a nice, clean, motel with good location.

    Great vacation getaway


    Went for the first time and wasn't sure what to expect. Had a great time. We stayed at the Greystone Lodge at traffic light #5 and loved it. Great location but out of the way, it is next to Ripleys Aquarium. In seeing the location of some of the other hotels they are right on the strip and would not have liked that.

    Hotel is clean and rooms are spacious. We had a belcany that overlooked the creek. Very relaxing.

    They had a continental breakfast that consisted of donuts, bagles, biscuits and gravy, cereal, juice, coffee and tea.

    The grounds are clean and everyone was very friendly. Pool is outside and has a shallow childrens pool on one end that was great as we had our 2 year old grandsons with us.

    We went the week before July 4th and left on the 3rd and was glad as very crowded and traffic is bad. Would not go again on a holiday weekend.

    The State Park is beautiful and no charge to go through. We also went to Cades Cove and could have spent the day there. Just beautiful. There were deer along the side of the road you could take pictures and they just look at you. Can hike if you want but lots to see and do. Takes approximately 2 hours to drive through without stopping as one lane road once you get there but well worth the trip.

    Went to Dollywood. Really enjoyed but feel it is one of those things once you went you don't need to go back. Beautiful park with lots of entertainment for all ages. Did have long waits at the shows so missed most of them.

    We are looking forward to returning and will stay at the same place.

    5) Dolly Parton was everywhere. She has a highway named after her, a theme park... i think a splash park... it's just dolly dolly dolly.

    6) Traffic was awful. Awful.

    ... green, reminds us of Germany.

    In the afternoon we finally get into the quiet and peacefully remote place that we desired: ahhhh, like heaven on earth after all the cities and traffic. We look forward staying on the Meadow Creek Mountain Ranch in eastern Tennessee for the next 4 nights.
