Vintage-gem alert! Staying in the Gillette Motel is a bit like traveling back in time to the days when you vacationed with the folks. And all at a great price. The motel offers several room configurations including a standard room with both a king bed and a queen bed, a standard with two queens, and another with two double beds. The spacious king-Jacuzzi room has a whirlpool along with a sofa. While the property is from yesteryear the guest rooms and pool are super clean.
All of the rooms have a flat-screen TV, a microwave, a mini-fridge, and stunning Gatlinburg views. The property also has an outdoor pool.
The Gillette Motel is ten-miles to Dollywood, 0.5-miles to The Village Shops, 0.6-miles to Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies, three-miles to Wild Bear Falls (indoor water park), 2.5-miles to Historic Ogle Log Cabin, and two-miles to the Gatlinburg Sky Lift.

We stayed here for 3 nights, had the king room with balcony and jacuzzi. It had to be one of the biggest hotel rooms I’ve ever stayed in. It was spotless upon our arrival. We did not experience any problems and will definitely stay here again. Very close to all attractions, most within walking distance.
This is a lovely and good priced motel for a family stay in Gatlinburg! The only trouble I had was when I called first while on the way, they said they had no rooms available then when I called a second time, they said they did. It was a nice, clean hotel while has a lovely pool during the summer and I will be staying again!
