    Excellent location & the staff was awesome

    Walk to everything! The staff is very attentive to your needs. It would be nice if everyone who brings their fur babies to clean up after them.

    Great Location

    Pet friendly and reasonable fee. Was very pleased to be able to stay in a great central location to town and bring my pet. Loved walking her in town and taking pictures with her. Very friendly staff. Thanks Ginger for always checking on our stay each day. I would stay here again for sure.

    Great location

    I stayed at this location October 19, 2021until October 21,2021 with my senior dog and my senior mom. The Signature rooms have been remodeled with laminate wood floors, nice bedding , fresh paint and a nice gas light fireplace. We had a room with a balcony overlooking the shallow fast flowing river below. Comfy beds and pillows and crispy white bedding. The room was clean. Fridge and microwave and coffee maker. 2 sinks and mirrors. The pool was heated and several people were in it during this time of year. There are smallish grass areas here and there but they are mostly slanted. My elderly dog needs a flat area so we went to the large flat area by the office. At night, there is a mother bear with two kid bears that I saw visit the parking area, checking trash cans which are bear proof. The bears went into the neighboring parking garage. The staff said they are regulars and do not bother pets or people but to stay away and don’t approach them. They were no problem and I was excited to see them. There is a $100 pet fee. Pets shouldn’t be left in the room. Pick up after your pet. The restaurant is closed but there are other restaurants within walking distance.

    Great location

    The hotel was so convenient to the main part of town. The staff was soooo friendly. Because of Covid there was no room service (which was perfect for us!) Right across the street, ate dinner at Tom & Earls back alley grill with the pup. Also spent time at Goodwater Winery which was dog friendly.

    Gatlinburg Tn - dog friendly

    This hotel was wonderful for Lilly- they did not have like a designated area for dogs - just expected you to clean after them. Great location- the restaurant across the street was dog friendly.
