Our Motel in Downtown Gatlinburg, TN
Parking is scarce and expensive in Gatlinburg. But at our motel, guests receive FREE parking at our downtown Gatlinburg motel — one of the most convenient spots in town.
Whether you’re staying for business or pleasure, the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites is within walking distance to most anything in Gatlinburg.
Our downtown Gatlinburg motel is in the middle (really, we are in the direct center) of Gatlinburg, only a few steps from the Parkway and in the shadow of the Gatlinburg Space Needle and Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum.
At the Econo Lodge Gatlinburg, you are close enough to smell the pancakes cooking at the downtown restaurants as you step onto the balcony every morning and feel the fresh mountain breeze whistling in from the Great Smoky Mountains National Park—located less than a mile from our downtown Gatlinburg motel.
Attending a Convention or Meeting at the Gatlinburg Convention Center?
The Econo Lodge Gatlinburg is located merely 100 yards from the Gatlinburg Convention Center—a relaxed, level stroll from your room at the Econo Lodge Inn & Suites to the Convention Center entrance.
We also offer great rates to groups of all kinds: church groups, business groups, trade show attendees, and school groups.
Directions to our motel in downtown Gatlinburg:
From Pigeon Forge: Once you come into Gatlinburg, we are the first road on your left past McDonald’s. Our road is NOT at a traffic light. Instead, look for a marble ball which sits in water outside of Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum; turn left toward that ball on Reagan Drive. Our motel is just up the street once you turn.
From Cherokee: We are the first road on your right past traffic light #8 (Don’t count, they have numbers on them). Turn right toward the marble ball sitting on the sidewalk outside of Ripley’s Believe it or Not Museum. Our motel is just up the street once you turn.
