10 Things You Should Look for in Sevierville Lodging
Planning a trip to Sevierville and the Smokies means trying to find the perfect accommodations that allow you to both relax and enjoy all of the fun and beauty that the area has to offer. We have put together 10 things you should look for in Sevierville lodging when planning your next vacation in the Great Smoky Mountains.
1. Well Maintained Property
Cleanliness and a well maintained property should most certainly be one of the first things that you look for during your search for the perfect lodging. A hotel that is clean and well cared for isn’t only a safe and healthy environment for you but it’s also a reflection of the love and care that is poured into the property by the owners’ and staff members.
2. A Great Location
A great location is a necessity when choosing your home away from home in Sevierville, TN. We have so many different things to do in the area that you’ll want to be in a location that allows you to visit numerous places with ease.
3. Locally Owned and Operated
Finding a locally owned and operated hotel in the Smokies is a must! You’ll find that your experience with the locals is far greater than hotels with less of a connection to the roots of East Tennessee. The same for businesses that you visit during your stay, seek out the locally owned restaurants, shops, artists, and more. Doing so will give you a glimpse into the history of the area and you’ll be treated to a true immersion of the Smoky Mountains.
4. Character and Charm
During your time in Sevierville you’ll be out exploring a good deal of the time, but you’ll also be spending a good portion of your day at the hotel as well. Finding a place that is filled with character and charm is an excellent way to make your vacation extra enjoyable. A property that is designed beautifully, is cozy, displays local art and photographs, and is filled with the splendor of the Great Smoky Mountains will amplify your experience.
5. A Good Value
We all know that finding a good value is one of the top focal points during any trip planning and here in the Smokies it’s no different. It’s important to find a balance of value and top-quality hospitality. A great experience in Sevierville doesn’t have to empty your bank account. And, the more you save, the longer you can stay!
6. Friendly and Knowledgeable Hotel Staff
Find a place that views their guests as extended family and that welcomes you with a smile and caring attitude. The manager, front desk staff, housekeeping staff, and more should all be happy to greet you and look forward to seeing you again on a future trip. Knowledgeable staff can also help to make a great difference when it comes to your experience in the area. Being able to ask for suggestions and receive excellent advice is a wonderful way to seek out hidden gems, tricks around traffic, must see spots, and truly enjoy your time.
7. Comfortable Beds and Furniture
A good night’s rest is needed when you’re traveling, exploring the mountains, shopping, and visiting attractions. Lodging with comfortable beds and high-quality linens will help to ensure that you have plenty of energy to soak up your days in the Smokies with zest and excitement.
Great amenities are a must regardless of what area you’re visiting. Lodging that offers free wifi, relaxing outdoor seating areas, in-room amenities, guest rooms with microwaves and refrigerators, fireplace options when booking, access to a pool, and many more perks are a great investment for both your time and money.
Going on a never-ending search for parking is the last thing you want to do after a day of hiking, visiting Dollywood, shopping at Tanger, or exploring all of the attractions around Sevierville. Free parking and spacious parking should be on your checklist when searching for lodging in the Smokies!
10. Guest Reviews
Take time to read over numerous guest reviews for the hotel that you’re considering. No one is perfect but the great reviews should out number the negatives. Reading over a number of reviews can help you decide if the particular lodging that you’re looking for is the right fit for you.
