Pros: price, service, location, bubbling sound of the Roaring Forks, full kitchen, free internet
Cons: a little run down, dirty dishes & stained bath towels
If you're touring the Smokies and don't want to stay on Gatlinburg's chaotic, loud strip, this is a great spot. Located at the terminus of the Roaring Forks Motor trail, you can pay an extra $10 a night for a full kitchen, giving you quite a lot of space to spread out. It's not the nicest looking establishment, but perfect for people who want to fix some of their own meals and avoid the traffic, tourist traps and expense of downtown. Unlike the strip, however, there is little to nothing within walking distance.
