How to Get There
Pros- great Waterpark my 1 year old twins really liked Salamander Springs- this park is by far the best for toddlers, we did not use the indoor Waterpark and only used Lake Wilderness briefly, it was crowded and better for older children; rooms are large, location is convenient to attractions like Dollywood, Tanger Outlets
Cons- room was not ready at 4, floors were dirty and need a deep clean, dryer did not work properly
Rooms average I am bumping the rating up due to the Salamander Springs Waterpark and good location
Lifetime New Yorkers, never had a taste of the south (aside from Texas) so we decided to load up the car and hit the road. Our kids have seen a lot of stuff to do in pigeon forge so we decided to make that our annual summer vacation.
For the first week of our vacation we decided to make our base of operations the Wyndham great smokies lodge. We have stayed at other Wyndham vacation clubs in the past so this was a no brained.
We rented a two bedroom / two bathroom condo. It came complete with a fully stocked kitchen, as well as a washer and dryer. First thing we noticed when we checked in was that the ventilation fan was not working. Wasn’t a huge deal. Bathroom got a little steamy but turns out even in the other bathroom it was functional but very weak. Second was the water pressure in the shower. It was very weak so showering took a lot longer. Again....not a deal breaker.
One thing that was bothersome, was the hvac unit in the condo is very wonky. It does an overly good job of freezing one half of the condo, but neglecting the other half of the condo. My sister was always freezing in her room, and we were boiling in ours. (And before anyone says “why not just change rooms”) the sleeping arrangements were better suited to have her in that room. Either way, the hvac should be able to cool/heat the entire space evenly. So that was a big minus.
Being attached to the water park was a big plus. We were in the building adjacent to the water park so it was super convenient. (This is a review of the Wyndham so I will do a water park review separately)
The building is clean and well maintained. STaff is very friendly and polite.
One thing that didn’t sit well with me, on our last night here we came back to the hotel around 11. There was a group of rowdy teenagers congregating in the parking lot. Horsing around, littering, and being very rowdy at a time where people are trying to sleep.
I contacted the front desk to express my concerns, they stated they would send someone right away. Well...and hour and a half later, the group multiplied, and security is no where to be found. That tells me that they can’t be bothered with the safety of the guests, as well as the vehicles that belong to the guests.
Will have to make a note of that to management
Overall. Was a good stay. Convenient to the attractions, bunch of food nearby. If we ever come back to this area we would probably use this as a home base again,
This was our base in the Smokies! Three bedroom Presidential suite was awesome! We love to stay in the Presidential Suites. THe resort is part of the wilderness. Lot's of fun things for the kids. Waterparks in and out doors!
