Stayed at the Best Western Twin Islands Friday and Saturday nights Oct 17-18, 2008 and did NOT get a good night sleep either night. First night we just chalked it up to a noisy neighbor but the next night - at 1:00 AM the person in the room above decided to take a jacuzzi bath - for 20 minutes we heard the water fill the tub and then for another 30 minutes it was like a jet boat right above our ceiling. Then at 2:30 AM the Gatlinburg City Crew cleaned the streets. First a guy with a leaf blower came down the street then 10 mimutes later came the vacuum truck. At 3:45 the trash truck came to empty the trash bin for the Mexican restaurant next door... Oh by the way - if you stay there make sure you get up early and get your shower before everyone else gets up or you'll be getting hot (actually just warm) and cold flashes as people flush their toilets... Our toilet wasn't bolted to the floor and rocked like a rocking chair when we first checked in. At least they fixed it as soon as we notified the front desk. The Heater/AC in the room makes a major noise as it goes on and off all night.....
