Welcome to BEST WESTERN Twin Islands!

Situated in the stunning Great Smoky Mountains National Park, your Gatlinburg hotel offers a great location as well as the best amenities.

Guests have it all at this property, with Ripleys Aquarium of the Smokies just steps away and all the excitement of Dollywood just a few miles from your comfortable guestroom. With a downtown location, the best of Gatlinburg is at your doorstep, whether it is an evening of live music or a lazy weekend of antiquing that is on the itinerary. Plus, no trip to this part of Tennessee is complete without making the most of the great outdoors.

Enjoy a playground on the property, ideal for families traveling with kids. The Little Pigeon River runs completely around the property, with a river walk on site. The concrete walk around the river is ideal for a romantic evening stroll or to instantly get in touch with nature. A picnic area with grills completes this picture of perfection, and is a big reason why this Gatlinburg hotel is a favorite in the summer months.

For the most important meal of the day, leave it to our friendly staff. A free breakfast greets guests every morning, and the aroma of freshly scrambled eggs and sausage, original and flavored waffles, the allure of fresh fruits, and the sweetness of morning pastries make sure that every day gets started right. Nothing compares to a hearty breakfast, especially when a day of hiking the trails or checking out the local shops is in order.

Renowned for beautiful grounds and being nestled so close to nature, this Gatlinburg hotel truly delivers. Do not be fooled by the downtown location. It really is possible to get the best of both worlds, which means you will not miss anything on the trip of a lifetime.

Book your next getaway at BEST WESTERN Twin Islands for peace, quiet and a great setting!

Not great/not bad

Facility obviously puts a great deal of effort into landscaping, but low water level made "island" stream kind of grubby looking. Staff wasn't rude, but not particularly friendly, either. Exception:... more
