Estimate of Rating Levels
Now for some of the not so great comments: To their credit, when you hear about an in-room jacuzzi, you might expect a little better presentation. Although the tubs are designed for two it almost looks like they took the Whirlpool out of the bathroom and stuck it in the corner of the room. There are also some complaints about the cleaning in the rooms and how the staff responds to problems. The good comments far outweigh the bad and it is probably a Hotel in Gatlinburg worth looking in to.
