Located just off the main strip leading through Gatlinburg, Quality Inn & Suites Gatlinburg is a budget hotel overlooking the Gatlinburg Mountain Coaster. The location is quite central for getting to nearby attractions, like Great Smoky Mountains National Park, as well as going into downtown Gatlinburg. The 86 guest rooms are spacious and contemporary with flat-screen TVs, microwaves, mini-fridges, and private balconies -- some include fireplaces and hot tubs. Rates include a free buffet breakfast and free coffee is available throughout the day in the lobby. Additional features are limited to a seasonal outdoor swimming pool, with no fitness or spa features available. Travelers looking for more on-site features should check out Sleep Inn & Suites, with an indoor pool, lazy river, hot tubs, and fitness center.
Apart from the beautiful mountain setting, Quality Inn & Suites Gatlinburg doesn't look like anything spectacular from the outside. The interiors are a lot more cozy and welcoming, with simple and modern decor. The lobby is small and formal, with wood laminate flooring, wooden reception desk, small business center in the corner, free coffee station, two elegant high-back chairs, and mountain-themed artwork on the walls. The outside of the hotel features strips of stone walls and red-fenced balconies. The breakfast room is quite plain in decor, though it includes a corner fireplace which makes for a cozy setting in the winter months. Overall, the atmosphere is peaceful and relaxed, though some guests have complained of noisy dogs (as this is a pet-friendly property). The hotel attracts mainly couples and families, with a few business travelers passing through.
