Gatlinburg, TN 37738

Gatlinburg Inn is a wonderful hotel and is one of the most highly rated in Gatlinburg. Guests’ comments include, “old school charming”, “everyone was super friendly and accommodating”, and “everything was clean and comfortable”.

Location, location, location. Situated right in the middle of the downtown area, you may think you have stepped into a time machine when you enter the doors. The paneled walls and wallpaper are reminiscent of times gone by. But don’t get the idea that this place is living in the past. The decor may be “1950’s lodge”,  but that is just part of the charm.

Enjoy a modern outdoor swimming pool and tennis courts while staying at this inn. Elevators take you to the upper floors. The rooms are comfortable and have cable television and hair dryers. A daily hot breakfast is served in the dining area.

Right next door is the Gatlinburg Sky Lift and other attractions are within two or three minutes walk.
