    Historical Traveler Reviews Brookside Resort Gatlinburg

    My Favorite Place To Stay!


    I love staying at the Brookside Resort. I have stayed there about 6 times. It's inexpensive, quite, clean, and has everything you need. I love the pool & slide. In the evening I enjoy sitting in the porch swing that overlooks the stream. Its a very relaxing resort. I give it an A++++++.

    A Nice Place to Stay


    I just wanted to write a review of this motel to help other people decide where to stay while visiting Gatlinburg.

    I thought this was a very nice place to stay. Granted, it is a little old but compared to the other places I saw, it was nice. We have two kids and their pool facilities, basketball court, and streamside area made this a very enjoyable place to stay.

    The rooms were nice and clean. It is quite a ways from the main drag but it is very quiet and relaxing.

    I will definitely stay here again.

    Brookside resort cabins


    We didnt stay at the hotel but at their cabins we enjoyed them very much and would stay there again. very clean and beds were just great

    Honestly, it's bad


    OK, we're not the type of people to either write bad reviews or check out of hotels, but this calls for it. I'm not sure what hotel the rest of the reviewers stayed at, but it certainly seems like a place much different than what my wife and I saw recently (Summer 2004) at the Brookside. First of all, they say they're 4 1/2 blocks from the Aquarium, maybe so, but only if your talking Las Vegas-size blocks. Anyway, we checked in (streamside-standard room) and upon walking in an old, musty smell hit our noses that nearly sent my wife running. We quickly decided that this was something we would not be able to deal with. The decor is old to the point of being drab (we've dealt with old before and didn't mind it, but this seemed excessive). They offered to upgrade us to a deluxe room for free. We agreed to look. It was a little better, but had a wood-burning fireplace in the corner, so the room had a wet-burnt-wood smell. We checked out 15 minutes after checking in and found other lodging. To be fair to the staff, they were very courteous when we informed them we'd be leaving because we were unhappy with the condition of the rooms.

    Quite and relaxing!!


    I stayed at Brookside Resort back in May 2003 and it was wonderful.. It has beautiful surroundings and the hotel is very neat and clean.. They have a very friendly staff..If your looking for a place to stay and don't want to stay on parkway brookside is a place you should look into...

    A quiet getaway off the main strip


    My husband and I went to Gatlinburg in September 2003, his first trip to East TN (We are in our mid-fifties). We chose Brookside as our place to stay after reading all the literature sent to us by Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce and the numerous motels. It is everything it says in the brochures. We were highly pleased with the resort and would recommend it to others who want to stay in a quiet and relaxing atmosphere after having spend a couple of days enjoying the main drags of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The away-from-the-crowd location of Brookside is excellent and it is within walking distance of main Gatlinburg. One tip: You must be in good enough condition to walk a couple of blocks UPHILL on the way back to the resort.

    Wonderful Family Reunion Resort


    My family and I have visited Brookside Resort since early 90's. We have found it to be a wonderful family place to relax, shop and to have fun.

    Our family reunion was great and was catered by a fine caterer in the area. A must see and visit resort,Estella.



    We just got back from Gatlinburg. Our 3td time staying at the Brookside. We always ger the same room on the creek side. We never want to leave.I would highly recomend the Brookside Resort.

    Great Family Motel!


    Our family stayed at Brookside in July of 2002. We all had a wonderful time! Brookside has a terrific pool complete with waterfall and slide. The kids had a blast! The hot tub was wonderful for us parents also. The stream behind the motel was beautiful and the whole family had fun hopping from stone to stone. This is a great, moderate to inexpensively priced place to stay!

    Home Away From Home


    Brookside Resort/Gatlinburg is very homey & cozy.Convenient to town without the crush of crowds &traffic. Very calming atmosphere, clean rooms,good maid service, great rates. Anxious to getback there. Been there about 12 times so far.

    Our last stop has been Gatlinburg, TN. We enjoyed our visit to the Dixie Stampede and Dollywood. Jim looked all over the place, high and low but never saw Dolly! We ran into the Compton's from Lexington who happened to be here too. We enjoyed having dinner together with Ben, Suzanne, Charlie and Nancy. It was nice to have friends to enjoy a meal with again.

    It will be wonderful to be back in South Carolina even though there will be lots of changes from ...

    ... 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 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 ...

    ... the GPS told us there was a 26 minute slow down on our
    travel route and it was right. An extra half hour was spent in a
    couple of thousand car traffic jam due to a small road accident.
    We've been very blessed to have barely any problems with traffic or
    at least unexpected traffic. We knew driving around major cities that
    there would be some level of congestion. But apart from this hold up,
    there has been hardly anything else so that has been ...

    We relaxed for the day at Yogi
    campground. In the morning Kaitlin bought and coloured a t-shirt.
    $8.50 for an hours entertainment and a souvenir. Good deal. We
    almost went on a walk. Ben headed out beforehand to follow the sign
    we had seen for Mingo Falls. It said 2 miles which seemed doable but
    we have had experience walking with our children many times on this
    trip and wanted to now what the ...
