I am planning a trip to Gatlinburg right after Christmas but do not know anything about the area or hotels. I will fly into Knoxville and rent a car. I have been told that the Red Roof Inn on Ownby Street is very close to everything downtown. The reviews are not very impressive. Does anyone know of a place in that same vicinity that is a good clean hotel? We would prefer not to have to drive once we get to the hotel. Is there such a hotel/motel availabile? Thanks for your help.
