Gatlinburg, Tennesse is one of our favorite places to travel. Located about an hour from Knoxville, Tennessee, it’s a great place to get away for a weekend or even a quick day trip to visit The Great Smokey Mountains.
4 years ago, we took a fun ride up to Gatlinburg and I shared all the fun things we did in THIS BLOG POST. I go into detail on where we stayed, where we ate, and what activities we did all in a day. Be sure to check it out if you’re planning a trip!
We traveled back to Gatlinburg this past week for a quick little girl’s trip during spring break and booked our stay again at The Greystone.
The location is one of the best parts of the hotel. Located across the street from both Ripley’s Aquarium and Anakeesta, it’s in the heart of the city without being on the main strip.
It’s located right on the river so you’ll love hearing the gentle sounds of the water below. Listen closely and you may even get to hear and see a duck or two. The cute ducks are another reason my girls love staying there.
Many Room Options
Since it was just 4 of us, we booked the double queen executive room and it was perfect for two adults and two kids. My girls were a little disappointed we didn’t get the family suite again but it was already booked. They loved having the bunk beds.
Free Complimentary Breakfast
I do wish I would have taken a photo of the free complimentary breakfast buffet they serve. They have everything from cereals, bagels, to eggs and biscuits and gravy and it’s all delicious. It’s a great perk when you’ve got a hungry family to feed in the morning and don’t want to wait in line for a table elsewhere.
There are many other amenities available like an outdoor swimming pool (open April-October), a fitness room, and complimentary parking.
