I'm really curious about something that isn't really specific to Gatlinburg, but I've seen it twice there and you guys on the Gatlinburg board are really nice.
I'm always on a budget, whether I'm travelling for business or pleasure. I look at maps of places and reviews of hotels I'm looking at staying with, but over the past few months, I have stayed in a few places that had awful reviews to get a good price. Each time, I have been pleasantly surprised with the facilities and service at these hotels.
I guess what I'm asking is, am I just a cheapo who's willing to overlook things for the sake of price, or do other people expect to stay at the Ritz when they are really on a No-Tell Motel budget?
I do realize that I'm a guy of large physical stature, and I don't drive a car anybody in their right mind would steal. So I don't worry about those things like some others might.
Maybe some of you have some insights here. I just had this thought on the way home today and wondered what some of you might say.
