First Night Out

We couldn't believe Pigeon Forge - it has grown up SO much! So many things to see and do. But our goal was Gatlinburg and we finally rounded the curve of 441 on the west end of of town about 6:30 p.m. Gatlinburg has changed a lot too, but it still has the same feel. People walking everywhere. After getting settled in our room, we decided to walk up …

Today we checked out of Westgate. It's a bigger deal to check out of a timeshare resort than a hotel since you have to take out the garbage and gather your linens and start your dishwasher etc. We asked for a late checkout the night before but was told we would have to wait til morning. So we called at 8am and they gave us til 11 (it was 10) so …

... I remember someone asking how I was doing, then handing me a cold paper towel wad, from under the door.....so thank you, who ever did that. Of course, my buddies did not miss the photo opp! I can't even remember who came and helped me walk back to the hotel, after they got finished eating .....but I remember it felt like a speed run. So that was it, my birthday....don't remember much after the 2nd tastings, but I will always have this awesome photo of hugging the ...

... to eat, not get a speech about zero impact camping. I later apologized for being an ******* towards him. Turns out he was a ridge runner - Fletcher - really cool guy, and it was great talking to him. Young, smart, and level headed kid - was great talking to/ hanging out with him. Wed April 2, Tough day again, the climb did not seem all that steep, but was an ass kicker. It was a day of long hiking, small rest stops, and sore legs. At one of the stops, ...

... jumping out of 2nd stories windows, stealing, taking advantage of kind people, and being tweaked out of his mind.........he got arrested! So that was good news, hopefully they keep him in for a long while - he had enough drugs on him - hopefully it gets him some real time. Other than that, nothing extreme going on. Just a relaxing ...

    Always enjoy staying at Hilton Garden Inns. Nice room, not huge but good, clean space. Great view of Mt. Le Count.

    First glance LOVED this hotel and was so happy I have booked her. Beautiful lobby and the guy at the desk was so nice and helpful and even called us when our room was ready and offered me ice for my cooler or to refrigerate my medicine while we waited. The room itself was nice but then I realized it was pretty dirty. So much so that I actually ended up getting cleaner and a cloth from the maid and did it myself. I have never, in all the hotels I have stayed at around the world EVER felt the need to clean my own room so for this to happen at a Hilton was so disappointing for me. And it wasn't like they just hurried today but that this room has not been cleaned right in a LONG time. There was dust on every table and thick too. And there was food stuck on to all the cards and other things in the room including what appeared to be cupcake icing all over the channel guide for the TV. The bed is also disappointing. It has some adjustment on the side for softness but I am not sure its working and the sheets do not fit the bed so it makes the whole thing feel cheap. The linens are not as nice as other Hilton properties as well. But the decor is nice and the location is really good...on the end of town closest to the park. I have a refrigerator and a microwave in the room which is nice. The ac works well and is not loud. There is free parking and a short walk to the main road. There is free wifi which actually works and is convenient to use! There is a fireplace in the room and its very nice and the room is well appointed. In fact if it was not for the cleaning issue (which is obviously a serious problem) I would have easily given this 5 stars. The only other thing I would change was the jacuzzi. Its outside and by a fire pit off the lobby area and quite large and beautiful but the jets don't work so its just circulating the water and not actually massaging anything really.
