We have found a home in Pigeon Forge. Such a great place, clean, beautiful rooms, courteous staff and good breakfast which is included with stay. The ducks behind the hotel are such a great photo opportunity and well as being so peaceful to just sit and watch. I am giving our stay 9.75 out of 10. It would have been... More

Stayed here for a weekend trip with my husband and 2 12 year olds. The room was spacious and clean. The girls loved playing in the pool and walking by the river. It was nice to have the parkway in front and the peacefulness of the river in the back. The hotel is also within walking distance to several restaurants... More

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The air conditioning did leave something to be desired as the unit on high was barely able to cool the room. One should be mindful of the room selected as well when booking as our room window looked out on the back of another part of the hotel just a few... More

We stayed there October 10-13. We had a double queen on riverside, third floor. I enjoyed the fact that we could see river through our window. This hotel is outside entrances with no individual balconies. I usually prefer a hotel with a balcony, but I really enjoyed this hotel. The riverside was quiet. The room had two queen beds, a...

tried to stay there, on line price said $89 got there an hour later and the lowest price was over a $100 with a military discount. Also very hard to get to and out of from the main drag. The desk clerk was very busy helping people use multiple credit cards to pay a pill.
