Gatlinburg accommodations include roadside motels, luxurious hotels, bed and breakfast establishments, and the most popular of all: log cabins and chalets. Each has their own distinct advantages. Finding exactly what you want in terms of lodging is easy as pie.

Advantages among Options

The roadside motels offer convenience. They are low on aesthetics, certainly, but some can be quite charming. If what you're looking for is simply a place to crash after a hard day's hiking, cycling, horseback riding or sightseeing, then many of these smaller places may be just what you're looking for.

Hotels can offer higher-level design elements, and can be very accommodating to senior citizens, or anyone with disabilities. Hotels frequently have restaurants on their premises, along with gift shops and beauty salons, making them a one-stop for tourists that like "all in one" accommodations. Frequently hotels will have swimming pools exclusively for guests' use, which are very popular in the warmer summer months.

Bed and breakfasts have their own charm. Typically run by the owners, these places offer company as well as intimacy. Friendly innkeepers, beautifully appointed rooms with expensive bedding, and at least one meal a day make B&Bs popular with those that enjoy close company with others on holiday.

Without question, however, the most popular type of lodging in Gatlinburg includes the log cabins and chalets available all over town. These beautiful homes offer privacy, as well as first rate appointments. Some feature either hot tubs or jacuzzis--some offer both--as well as game rooms, multiple televisions, fully-stocked kitchens, and outdoor dining areas. Log cabins and chalets typically cost about as much as mid-range hotels, and are often less expensive per night than B&Bs. Whichever your preference, provided you plan far enough in advance, you should be able to find the exact right accommodation for your upcoming Gatlinburg vacation.
