Having a budget-friendly vacation is simple when you stay at the Edgewater Hotel! We make it easy for visitors to save with our affordable accommodations and fantastic location. You will be surprised how much you can save just by changing a few minor vacation habits you may have. We want all our guests to be able to experience a hassle-free and affordable vacation, which is why we’ve put together a list of 5 tips for saving money when you stay in our downtown Gatlinburg hotel.


1. Enjoy Free and Cheap Things to Do

A big chunk of money spent on vacation often goes into popular attractions. But you will be surprised at just how many fun things there are to do that are either cheap or completely free! The Great Smoky Mountains National Park is one of the most popular places to go for visitors, and it’s free to enter. You can explore more than 850 miles of hiking trails, go fishing, have a picnic and more! For something unique to do, visit The Salt and Pepper Shaker Museum. The museum costs $3 to enter, but that $3 can be put toward any of their items in the gift shop! If you have children 12 or under, they get in for free! You don’t have to empty your wallet to have fun when you stay in our downtown Gatlinburg hotel.


2. Sign-Up for Our Last-Minute Deals

Another tip for saving money on your vacation is to sign up for our last minute Edgewater Hotel deals. All you have to do is enter your phone number, and you’ll get exclusive access to some of the best deals that we have to offer. We notify you when a last-minute, exclusive offer is available, and you will be given access to the special. It’s one of the easiest ways to save!


3. Make Use of Our Hotel Amenities

The next tip for saving money is to take advantage of our hotel amenities. We have so much to offer, and you will be surprised at how much money we can help you save. First, be sure to fill up on the complimentary hot continental breakfast we provide our guests each morning. Dining out is where a large portion of your vacation budget is spent. Just eating one less meal out a day will save you so much overall. Also be sure to take advantage of both our outdoor and indoor pools! Who needs to pay money for a water park when you can splash around at our hotel for free? When you can swim rain or shine, you won’t have to worry about the weather getting in your way of fun. And, we’re within walking distance of attractions so you won’t have to pay for parking downtown! We also provide guests with free wireless internet access, free parking, private balconies and more.


4. Take Advantage of Our Value Packages

If you want to take the time to explore some of the local attractions, check out our amazing value packages. Our packages include a 2-night stay at our hotel and 2 adult tickets to some of the most popular attractions around! You can visit Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies and interact with your favorite aquatic animals, go to Dollywood for a day full of family fun or tour the Titanic Museum and feel what it was like to be an actual passenger aboard the ship! In addition, we have a Honeymoon Package available for two sweethearts wanting to make their stay extra special, including a bottle of chilled champagne and a sweet surprise waiting on the pillow!


5. Visit with a Group

When you visit with a group, you can all split the overall cost instead of having to pay for separate rooms! This ends up costing way less than if you had to pay full price every night! Plus, visiting with a group is always more fun because you get to share your experiences with the people you love.
