... Memphis TN. This is a short leg, only about 5 hours in transit before the next anchorage. Tonight the plan is to go to the Grand Ole Opry and see Crystal Gayle and some other country folks. I'm a bit concerned ...

The weirdest experience was a restaurant called 'Dick's Last Resort'. These restaurants are everywhere now that we are aware of them. We walked in to the restaurant and the guy was like 'Welcome to Dick's! Have you been before?' We were like 'No', he then said 'You have heard of us before right?', our response 'Nope'. 'His response 'So you've just ...
... As I returned to the shelter a “CRASH!” erupted behind me as a large animal charged through the bushes.
I ran. No thought was involved, just reflex. As soon as I reached the shelter, I stopped, as if being under a roof would protect me. I turned and shone my light into the woods, but saw nothing. Whatever it was had been escaping me, not attacking.
I climbed back in bed and just shook for a couple of minutes. I had no idea what kind of animal ...

Poor Marc and Louise, I didn't have the heart to tell them that they should probably have chosen a shorter hike to be their first one. My concern grew for our hiking companions further as we started our walk. Me and Les had come prepared:

Historical Traveler Reviews Hampton Inn Gatlinburg
Clean room, comfy beds
We stayed in room #211. This a creek side room with 2 queen size beds. You can hear the water rushing by if you crack your balcony door open.
The room was clean with very good beds and linnens.
Breakfast was okay/average good coffee though.
Great location if you want to be in the middle of all the action. Many shops, attractions and resturants. Two blocks from liquer store/grocery store.
I would stay here again if in Gatlinburg.
The downside of Gatlinburg...
Too much traffic..we mostly walked everywhere.
Walking was faster than taking the city Tram wich was also tied up in the traffic. This was over a weekend visit, not sure about week day conditions.
For most people, I'm sure they have a lovely stay at the Hampton. We would have too, aside from a few problems.
We stayed from Mar 11-16 and it was wonderful. I loved all the service. Everything was very clean. We had a balcony over the creek which was wonderful also. Everyday when we would come back from our day/night out the maids would have my daughter's dolls and teddy bears propped up on the bed and they loved it. The breakfast was wonderful and they had plenty everyday. It was a great place to stay and would recommend to anyone I know or don't know!!
We stayed at Hampton Inn on the Parkway this past weekend. Overall a wonderful location, the check-in and out was very fast and courteous. Continental breakfast was better than most motels. Rooms were fairly small but to be expected in GB. The traffic was noisy until after midnight, and some bother from people slamming room doors, etc but no more than you usually deal with in a hotel. The shower disappointed me in the cleanliness--there were hairs left on the shower walls and bottom of tub, but I always take Lysol and clean before I bathe anyhow, but it is sort of disgusting to open shower curtain and see that! Other than that, it was a very pleasant stay, and the very best thing is that it is within walking distance of great restaurants and shops, and you can just leave your car parked and not have to fight traffic!!!
The Location is Great
The location was great. WE parked the car and walked
where are favorite spots are there. Our Room was on
the bottom floor and right on the river, I was in
hog heaven. The river is my thing, just to sit and
listen to it and watch it flow.
The room was cozy and the beds were very comfortable.
The management and staff were very friendly and helpful.
We will stay here again
Spent a long weekend at the Hampton Inn December 9-11. Hotel staff was friendly and helpful. Continental breakfast was average. If you are looking for a full meal go find a place to eat and pay for it. The rooms are small but clean. The hotel is located in the middle of the action so if you are looking for a quiet place this isn't it. If you want peace and quiet you should rent a condo outside of town and drive into Gatlinburg during the day. There are lots of public parking available however during the busy season you may have to fight traffic to get to them. It's all about your priorities. Good places to eat across the steet from the hotel - Cherokee Grill and Calhoun's (very good ribs). The next time I go to Gatlinburg I will choose to stay away from the downtown area. It's worth the hassle driving in order to enjoy a good night's rest.
Gatlinburg is certainly not a place where one can find a 4 star hotel. Despite the few problems we had during our stay in August of 2005, this hotel is still probably one of the better ones in Gatlinburg.
Overall good stay
Stayed at the Hampton Inn/Gatlinburg Jan 2005
with a small group of teens. Front Desk and Housekeeping
Staff was polite, friendly, helpful. Everything was clean. Bathrooms were very clean. Our rooms were adjacent as requested, the roll-away bed was in place. Coffee was good. The hot breakfast was a nice touch.
Only problem: We stayed creekside. 2nd floor, our balconies faced
the Ober-Gatlinburg Tram Lift---each morning about 6am we
were awakened by the garbage truck picking up
the dumpster at Ober Tram...bang! bang! boom!
But maybe you are a heavier sleeper!
We wanted to stay at the Clarion but I am truly happy we didn,t. Not that there is anything wrong with the Clarion but the Hampton Inn exceded our expectations. First the Hotel staff was outstanding from the minute we arrived until we left especially the front desk. The rooms were super clean and comfortable, I slept like a baby which never happens in a hotel. If anything on the negative side, the rooms were on the slightly smaller size but certainly adequate. The location could not be better for Gatlinburg, your right in the action. The breakfast was excellent clean and fresh, something for everybody. No problem parking always a space. Finally the price we paid even including a Saturday night stay was dirt cheap. Unless something changes, I won't shop around for a hotel room in gatlinburg, I will go to the hampton Inn.
We go to Gatlinburg every year, but this was the first time we've stayed at the Hampton Inn Gatlinburg. We booked a non-smoking, creek view room. Check in was at 3PM and the room was not ready until then, but the friendly front desk person gave us our parking tag and took care of check in so all we had to do was pick up our keys later on. The room was pleasant, nothing outstanding, but clean and comfortable. The shower would have been nicer if it had a massage-type shower head. Bathroom amenities included shampoo, soap, lotion, and makeup remover towelettes (a nice touch). All rooms have coffeemakers with both regular and decaf coffee provided. In addition, there is an excellent complimentary continental breakfast, which included pastries, doughnuts, muffins, biscuits and gravy, bagels, cereals, fresh fruit, juices, tea, coffee, and hot chocolate. Coffee, tea and fresh fruit are also available in the lobby 24 hours a day. USA Today newspaper is free each morning in the lobby. There is a heated outdoor pool and separate spa that we did not use. The balcony in our room had 2 chairs and a small table, and faced a pretty little stream. The staff are extremely attentive, friendly and helpful. Although we have stayed in nicer rooms, we would definitely stay here again for the location and the friendliness. The Hampton is conveniently located just before Light #9 and is in close walking distance of many restaurants and attractions.
