Reagan Resorts Inn Gatlinburg Reviews
Affordable "Resorts Inn", but beware! May 26, 2012
Reagan Resorts Inn is located in Gatlinburg, TN. There are many attractions in Gatlinburg within a good walking distance from the hotel, and it is just several minutes drive to the Great Smoky Mountains. We visited this hotel Memorial Day Weekend (Saturday). It looked alright from the outside, and was the only place we had found that had vacancy. Upon going to the reception desk, we were told there was only one room available.
The male receptionist was very nice. He offered to look for a more accommodating hotel in their list of hotel chains owned by the same management, because the room that was available only had two full-sized beds, and he thought that would be uncomfortable. Upon finding out there was none, he gave us the key to the hotel room and told us we can look at it before deciding if we wanted it.
Upon inspection, we found out that although the hotel room had enough space, something was missing. The room had no tables or chairs at all! This was evident by the ice box that was put on our beds. There was no place to put luggage or anything else except on the ground (although there were several hangers). There were lawn chairs on the balcony, but they had dirt on them so we decided not to bring them in. We had to open the ironing table to find a place to put stuff.
The room also had a big dent on one of the walls. There is, however, a fridge. The restroom was alright, and had one sink inside and out right outside. There is a fridge.
The beds, from a glance, looked clean, and the pillows were massive. However, in the morning, we noticed we had bug bits all over our arms. There must have been bedbugs.
The room includes a balcony; however, the view outside was nothing exciting, just the parking garage. A short walk down our hall, there is a small swimming pool outside, and a small hot tub. The hotel provides the pool towels in a nearby cabinet.
Continental breakfast is provided in each of their buildings, which was a plus. However, the selection is not wide. There is a waffle maker, but hotel guests are not allowed to operate it by themselves, there is a worker there to make the waffle for you. This is alright, but there is also a tip jar next to her, so they were expecting a tip on something that hotel guests usually do themselves.
Overall, although the hotel is located in a great area, from our experience, the room had no tables or chair (I can't say that's the case for all the rooms, though). Also, there are bedbugs, which is the biggest concern. I would not recommend staying here.
