It is all relative. I have used Tripadvisor for several years to research accomadations. I now relize that it is hard to sift through the bad and good reviews when I don't know the persons giving the reviews. So... we are family of 2 adults, 2 kids. We like to tent camp and we don't like all- inclusives when we go to Mexico. We enjoy the day hikes that the Smokey's have to offer, Greenbriar and Deep Creek both off the beaten path. Typically our family spends about 11 hours in the hotel room, 8 of which are spent sleeping. Downtown Gatlinburg was not our main destination. Our main destiantion was Ripley's Aquarium, which is FANTASTIC, and the Smokey's.
With that I offer:
This was an average hotel at $70/night. We stayed three nights and in April. A heated indoor pool is required this time of the year and the kids enjoyed what was offered. (Jacuzzi, Lazy River, Pool) If scenery is required for your enjoyment (eg. mountian stream or creek,) you may want to find something else) If the continental breakfast is required for your enjoyment you may want to find something else. My wife enjoyed the bisciut and gravy, kids like the rice cripys, I had coffee.
This was the second trip to Gatilinburg. I am still looking for the something cool at a $50 value. A hotel with a little older charm preferably on one of the many creeks running through Gatlinburg. This is the time of year (April and May) to go and avoid the summer crowds.
