Hotel Space at the 2006 Summit
If you have waited until the last minute to register for your hotel room at the Summit, you may find out that the hotel has filled up (certain nights are full).
You may be able to wait a couple of weeks and as other room blocks expire, get a room. So ASK the hotel if you can be put on a WAITING LIST.
My other recommendations are as follows:
1. Cheap ($55-$49), Clean Hotel with small rooms. Just Down the hill (steep hill!) about 1 mile from the Park Vista Resort Hotel (where the Summit is). If I remember right, free parking and internet…
2. Cabins in the Mountains around Gatlinburg (requires drive on narrow, twisty roads each day but great views). Links to cabin rental companies …
Cabins will be more memorable. Microtel will be cheaper.
If you rent a cabin, make sure it is near GATLINBURG (not Pigeon Forge). There is often heavy traffic between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg.
