When you choose to stay with us, you’ll find all kinds of ways how we can help you stay within budget on your trip to the Smoky Mountains.

1. Free Parking for Downtown Gatlinburg

If you were to stay in another city and visit Gatlinburg for a day, you would have to pay to park your vehicle. By choosing to stay with us, you’ll have free parking so you can easily visit downtown Gatlinburg! Plus, you’ll be able to leave your car at the hotel while you walk along the Gatlinburg Strip and find all kinds of fun things to do, places to shop, and food to try!

2. Pet Friendly Accommodations

Love to bring your pet with you on vacation? Their boarding fees or pet sitter costs can add to your financial concerns, but we offer pet friendly accommodations so you don’t have to worry about it at all! By bringing your pet with you on vacation, you can miss out on paying someone else to watch your dog and keep some cash in your wallet!

3. Trolley Stop Outside the Hotel

Another way our hotel in Gatlinburg TN helps you stick to your budget is by having a trolley stop right outside the front door. The trolley is free in Gatlinburg, so you can hitch a ride to the Arts and Crafts Community or the Gatlinburg Welcome Center. If you want to visit Pigeon Forge without having to move your car, take a ride to the Welcome Center and switch onto the Pigeon Forge trolley! Note that the Pigeon Forge trolleys cost minimal fees.

4. Offer Specials Throughout the Year

Since we know how important it is to our guests to keep their vacations affordable, we offer specials to help you get the best deal! You can save a percentage on your overall stay, or stay for so many nights and get the next consecutive night free. You’ll love these incredible deals at our hotel in Gatlinburg TN!

5. Free Entertainment

A huge perk of booking a trip with us is the free entertainment that’s available to all of our guests! With the cost of your hotel room, you will receive access to our indoor and outdoor pools, the guest laundry room, our exercise room, and private picnic areas. These amenities come with the cost of your stay, and it’s a great way to keep the kids entertained so you don’t have to spend extra money on expensive attraction tickets!

6. Restaurant in Our Hotel

Right after lodging, the cost of food is the most expensive part of vacations. Many of the restaurants in the Gatlinburg area are expensive, though you will find a few that will keep you in your budget. But what if you had access to an affordable place to eat that was also convenient? That’s exactly what you’ll get when you stay with us!
