This past weekend me, my husband, our baby boy and my in-laws headed to Gatlinburg, TN for a nice long weekend. I had never been to Gatlinburg before and thought it would be a nice relaxing break from our everyday schedules.
Packing with a baby :)
We headed out Thursday morning and kicked off our long weekend with a yummy country breakfast at Cracker Barrel. The trip was easy, and Brett was an angel, sleeping most of the way there.
Well, we located our lodging and I was a little surprised when I saw the sign...it was the Four Seasons alright. The Four Seasons Motor Lodge....hmmmmmmmm. Oh well simple mistake, lets go to our room. The sweet southern lady in the office said "ya'll are in the High rise" and we were instructed to go up a dark, moldy staircase where we opened the door to hell...haha kidding, but it was pretty bad.
The carpet was old and maroon, and fraying near the walls. It smelled like mold. It really looked like someones 1970's cabin that had been abandoned. I really wish we took pictures. There was no way I was going to let my baby play on that floor. Thankfully everyone agreed and we walked back to the office.
After a little more convincing than I think was needed, we got our money back and went down the road looking for another hotel.
We actually ended up at a GORGEOUS double tree hotel that had an awesome indoor pool and water slide! And other than spending double what we had planned, it was great! :)
