Garden Plaza Hotel Gatlinburg
Take The Trolley Ride!
The Garden Plaza Hotel Gatlinburg is a family friendly hotel with plenty to offer for a reasonable price. The location is made up of three separate buildings and settings. One thing we really liked about it was that the hotel is positioned off the main attraction area just up a bit of a hill at the base of the Smokey Mountain National Park.
The Garden Plaza Hotel Gatlinburg has actually been serving the area for some time, but it's clean and there's plenty to enjoy here. The hotel is a short walk from nearly everything we wanted to see, and the trolley that stopped right outside was a great way to get everywhere else. It's just two dollars for an all day ticket, so it's a good idea to make use of it.
Driving in the Gatlinburg area can be tricky during the busy season, so the ability to get places without the car is a real bonus. If you're going to walk, just remember that the return hike from town is uphill, so bring your walking shoes.
View of the Smokies!
We stayed on the 6th floor in the tower building facing the wooded area. The view from our window was gorgeous to wake up to a beautiful forest vista every morning. The beds were really comfortable and the room has a lot of extras that are very handy in the hotel, including a mini fridge that's good for sodas, snacks, and leftovers. If you need access, they have free wireless in the hotel.
The Garden Plaza Hotel Gatlinburg includes a complete hot breakfast in your room stay. The restaurant is only open for breakfast, which you get free coupons for. They have a nice selection of food from eggs, biscuits and gravy to cereal, fruit, yogurt, juices and coffee. We also found the onsite laundry made packing a lot easier, and after long hikes in the mountains,
we were happy to be able to enjoy fresh, clean clothes. The kids loved the pools and indoor recreation area - ping pong, air hockey, and video games go over well with the boys - and we enjoyed getting to have a relax in the whirlpools. They have two nice indoor pools and one outdoor poll, two whirlpools and a fitness center.

Location and Contact Information
We found the staff to be amazingly helpful, and they know a lot about the area. They were willing to give us directions to anywhere we were interested in going, and they didn't mind offering up advice on which attractions to see and restaurants we should check out, either. We even checked out games and books from the front desk. If you're thinking about a trip to Gatlinburg and want a nice place to stay that is priced reasonable, and is still close to everything worth seeing, the Garden Plaza Hotel Gatlinburg is a good choice.
