      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!

      Well, another doggio day started with my favorite thing...breakfast! I love me some breakfast; little crunchy bits mixed with litte savory chunks...Mmmmm.

      My Dad makes it for me every morning, and even though it's the same thing every day, I tuck into it like it's my first, and last, meal. But, that's how we should approach everything in life right? Sometimes, with that approach, a guy can bite into something ...

      After a great week in Richmond with jean & Herm we're ready to get on the road west.

      ... for Pigeon Forge / Gatlinburg, Tennessee. We had hoped to be able to make it in one go, but that was not to be. We had to overnight in the NW area of South Carolina and the following morning made the final road trek to Pigeon Forge.

      We were very fortunate that Vera's boss offered us his wood lodge in Pigeon Forge. It was a very cozy 2 bedroom lodge with a fire place and Jacuzzi on the screened in terrace.
