The size and scope of this time-share resort set it apart from most other hotels in the area. The attached water park makes it especially attractive to families, but use of the water park is not included in either the room rate or the resort fee, requiring an additional (optional) daily fee. It's also open to the public, so guests may have to compete with other tourists for the giant waterslides. Apart from the water park, there are two other outdoor pools, as well as a large arcade, a spa, and a playground. The location, between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, is somewhat isolated, so guests have to drive to get to area attractions. The condo-style rooms are large with full kitchens and living areas, but the walls are thin (noise is a major complaint among guests) and some are in better shape than others. Although there are several family-friendly amenities, other Gatlinburg hotels offer better rooms at lower rates. Travelers might prefer to stay downtown, or at another time-share such as the Gatlinburg Falls Resort -- and visit the Westgate's water park on a day trip.
