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!

Blue ridge parkway in the smoky mountains. Rode a stretch that was so narrow and as tight as anything on the dragon. Kent started the day with his shirt on backwards! Ha!! Cool up in the mountains , had to pull out a jacket! Great day! Heading out tomorrow back to Kentucky starting ...
... how much Virginia drivers suck. It's like they have no idea whats going on. Virginia is not for lovers, its for bad drivers.
2) I prefer the road when there is little to zero other cars. It is just way more enjoyable, and Toby likes it better when I don't have to turn off cruise control every few minutes.
3) The south is really pretty, even when cloudy! But, boy can it rain hard!
4) I think Toby only likes to ...
Enough of City tours, museums, etc. We are graving for some quiet and relaxing time. So, we booked this AirBnB somewhere in the countryside of the Appalachian, but on our way there we make a little detour through the Smoky Mountains.
This is a National Park, which apparently is the most visited ...

This week I have been challenged with a language barrier as it is Spanish week, luckily my ladies in my small group are locals and speak good English along with Spanish.
I am encouraged by God's presence here at the camp and particularly within my own life, as I have seen God ...
... ago. We went on the Foothills Parkway around the West side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We jumped on 321 in to Townsend and entered the GSMNP on Little River Road. We went to Gatlinburg rather than the planned stop in Pigeon Forge because of our late start and the threat of rain. Gatlinburg is a unique and interesting town: almost like a beach town/boardwalk minus the beach, but not very biker friendly. Parking is awful and some lots don't allow motorcycles and you ...
