    Historical Traveler Reviews Zoders Inn & Suites Gatlinburg

    Great place to stay

    from

    My family has been staying at Zoder's for over 20 years. It has a very special charm that is hard to find in downtown Gatlinburg. The rooms are clean, the indoor pool area and continental breakfast are inviting, and the creek views are awesome.

    Pass this one over

    from

    This hotel is a joke. Do yourself a favor and don't stay here. We were not happy with the hotel (the room had a very strong odor, the free breakfast was essentially a bowl of cereal and bread and you must pay for the raquet ball courts, plus the room was dirty) we told them we don't want to stay here because your hotel isn't a "resort" like you advertise and they refused to refund our one night deposit. They only accept a check or money order for the deposit for a reason. If we had used a credit card we could have received our money back. The manager was extremely rude and had a very bad attitude. They offer "little extras" but fail to tell you everything is portioned out as they see fit. I don't understand why you don't get a refund if you are not happy with the hotel and don't want to stay there. What happened to the customer is always right?

    Great Place For A Holiday

    from

    Our son was getting married in Gatlinburg and we had read good reviews for Zoder's Inn so we booked it from the 6th to 11th May 2004.It was a great place to stay with beautiful surroundings.The creek was so peaceful. Our suite had a fireplace but we did not get to use it as the weather was very warm then.

    All the staff were excellent especially Kathy as she ran us up to the restaurant after the wedding when we could not get a taxi.

    Hope we can have an other holiday at Zoder's Inn .

    As Advertized

    from

    My wife and I loved our time at Best Western Zoder's Inn. We were housed in the second unit back from the street, room 117 where it was VERY quiet, except for the wonderful sound of the stream that flowed right next to our porch. We really enjoyed sitting there watching the ducks negoiate the rapids as they swam past.

    The only suggestion that I could give for an improvement would be to have a better continental breakfast. Would I return to the same INN?

    Yes, in a heart beat.

    Best Western -- not the "best"

    from

    Three of my friends and I stayed at Zoder's Inn for our friend's wedding. Our troubles began several weeks before the trip when trying to book the room. The process was very complicated and we were not spoken to nicely on the phone. The first morning we woke up there, one of our breakers was blown. A maintenance man was sent up to fix it.

    After he left, we received a phone call from the front desk asking how many people were with our party b/c the man had told them that there were six people in there. The bride and her maid of honor, who were staying with their parents in other rooms at the same hotel had come over that morning. We also received another phone call the next morning asking the same thing, for no reason. The entire time we felt as though we were treated like children. We are in our 20's, but all have college degrees and do quite a bit of traveling and this was some of the worst treatment we've experienced in a hotel. We felt as though we were discriminated against based upon our age and that we were not treated appropriately.

    They'll keep you coming back

    from

    It is very hard to come by a good hotel in Gatlinburg. Even the AAA 4 diamond rating cannot be relied upon in this tourist destination.

    Zoder's has it all: local hospitality, cozy rooms with wood burning fireplaces, wine & cheese in the evening, cookies & milk at night, continental breakfast in the am. You get what you pay for at Zoder's: good service, clean rooms, well-groomed grounds, close to town but with a lovely mountain stream ambiance. We keep on going back!

    ZODERS BEST WESTERN IS # 1 FOR US

    from

    We have stayed at Zoders BW Inn each October since 1993. We have always found our stay to be very enjoyable. Deandrea and her entire staff go out of their way to help in every way they possibly can to make your stay memorable.We have just returned home from our most recent trip, and although all the employees are great, there is one in housekeeping we feel should be recognized for an excellent job . Our suite was immaculate from the time we unlocked the door until the moment we left. Thanks, ZODERS,We're looking forward to seeing you next October. Mrs. J. R. Simmons, Mrs. Barbara Pruitt & Mrs. Edna Sisk (sisters)

    Wonderful Hotel!

    from

    My wife and I journeyed to Gatlinburg for our 1 year anniversary. We stayed at Zoder's and had a great time. Rooms was large, clean, private. The outdoor and indoor pool (and jacuzzi) was wonderful.

    Hotel is convenient to downtown Gatlinburg so shopping and eating is just a few hundred steps away :)

    Only complaint...they still wanted to charge us to play raquetball (on their empty courts) even though we had our own equipment. So we didn't play.

    Other than that, we would stay at Zoder's again.

    Nice and nosey

    from

    This was a ok Inn but the maids are very nosey they said that an extra person was in are party and billed our credit card 84.34 without telling us. We called them and they were very rude about it they should have said something as soon as they thought someone was there they would have found out that there was no one else was there.

    If you like nosey maids that lie and rude service stay at Gatlinburg's Best Western Zoder's Inn.

    A great place

    from

    A wonderful place to stay, plenty of home town hospitality combined with clean, well decorated rooms. A stream runs through the grounds along with a picnic area, indoor and outdoor pool and exercise area. A trip to Gatlinburg just isn't complete without staying at Zoder's...I highly recommend it!

    ... nice and we greatly appreciate them letting us stay in their cabin.

    My favorite part of Gatlinburg was being have to have breakfast with Phil and Cam... Brian and I worked with them in Alaska and haven't seen them in 4 years!

    The day was long but the company and scenery was great!

    ... even during day time) it ends up in a traffic jam. Well, not quite our understanding of a National Park, and it seems strange to send miles and miles of cars through the forest, polluting the air. Jeanny and the kids decided walking, and were faster than me in the car.

    Little Time for Everything

    A travel blog entry by sweettea on Jul 02, 2015

    It seems like every time that I look at the day I have lost three. Every day here on the mountain is packed full of programming and relationship building to the point that I been forgetting about everything else that is off of the mountain like keeping up with my blog. I that having a blog for my summer experience is not going to work well as I am not able to devote my time to it as I would like to do. Even scarier is that I have a 5 page ...

    ... with just a few sprinkles but we must have timed everything great because there was plenty of wet roads so it seems like we just missed the rain. We headed up 129 today and drove past the Cheoah Dam where The Fugitive was filmed. There wasn't really a good pull off to take pictures plus we were afraid it was going to rain and none of us wanted to do the Dragon in the rain. The part of 129 from the Dam up to Deal's Gap was just as curvy as the official Dragon though! Going North on ...
