Another outing that starts with...."so, we had this groupon"... We bought two of their groupon specials to combine for a long weekend, which was four days and three nights in a room with a Jacuzzi, fireplace, balcony, and king bed. We had no problem scheduling, which is always a concern with groupon.
The room was quite large and very clean. The Balcony had a beautiful view of the mountains, and of course the river. It was lovely to watch the sunset just wish they had more comfortable chairs out there. There lobby is warm and inviting that it made me actually want to sit there. I've never had a desire to just sit in a hotel lobby and watch people but here I actually wanted to. Their morning breakfasts are amazing. They have excellent biscuits and gravy and my daddy was from the south, so I know biscuits and gravy. I also loved the evening popcorn they made. Also, I couldn't get over how nice the staff was. Maybe it's a southern thing but the were always smiling and super talkative to people at breakfast.
If I had to saw one negative thing it would be that their Jacuzzi are not super comfortable and the jets never hit in the right spot. They are not positioned to hit key areas like the upper and lower back
Just thinking about the great time we had makes me want to go back!
Tips: 1. If you're not interested in the all the super touristy things and want to avoid crowds go the week before Christmas. Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg were almost like ghost towns, which we enjoyed because we could drive anywhere in minutes and didn't have to deal with crowds at the Gatlinburg mall or aquarium
