You may know that I-40 is the main route people use to get to Sevier County, Gatlinburg, and Smoky Mountain hotels. But which exit should you take to get to Zoders Inn & Suites?

There is Exit 407 if you are coming from Knoxville or West – that is the main exit which will take you first into Sevierville and Pigeon Forge, then Gatlinburg. Recently, Exit 407 has been redesigned as a divergent diamond interchange, to ease the flow of traffic on and off the ramps. So far, everybody is happy with this change. You should still expect delays around Exit 407 though, especially during vacation times and weekends, even though the diamond seems to have helped.

If you are coming from North Carolina, Virginia or East, you have two options: Exit 435 (Gatlinburg Sevierville) or Exit 442 (Foothills Parkway). Both will take you through Cocke County into Gatlinburg (Hwy 321).
