I enjoyed my stay at this Hampton Inn and I might stay there again. However, I didn't know until arriving that it's motel-style, with each room opening directly to the outside. Consequentially, it's a little noisy with the hubbub of nearby tourists, and it's a long, cold walk to the lobby or vending machines if you stay during winter.
The room was a comfortable size but the bathroom wasn't what you usually expect from this brand.
I felt the parking spaces were a little tight for my full-size SUV, but the free on-site garage did have a few generous spaces toward the back.
I don't think this property is a good representative of the Hampton Inn brand, but considering its excellent location and price, it really is a great value. I might stay there again.
Hampton inn Gatlinburg Tennessee on the parkway is in a very convenient location right on the strip. Staff is very friendly and extremely helpful. Rooms are always furnished very well and very clean. We have stayed here for several years in multiple times per year and always have great service!!!
