Columbus, OH

#1 Dec 3, 2011
For the past 20 years, my wife and I have visited the Smokies at least 7 times a year for 5 days at a time, until this year and we only made 3 very short trips. The gas prices was not that much of a problem, it was the very high prices for overnight stay.$85.00 to $125.00 a night for motel/hotel rooms or $150.00 a night for a cabin is over priced Cabins are normally dirty. I think the owners should check them on a regular basis. We recently stayed at the Graystone. First night was $90.00 and $59.95 the next two nights. What did I get extra the first night compared to the las two nights? The sink wouldn't hold water and couldn't be fixed. I stuffed a rag in the sink hole so I could shave. Dollywood entrance price, very over priced.$39.95 would be a fair price. We are loosing interest.
