Pleasantly surprised! Front desk staff was nice enough. Seemed clean. Pool area was nice. Bring your own towels. River area also nice with option to feed friendly fowl. No major problems except housekeeping ignoring the fact that I had arranged a late check out and disturbing me.

This hotel is just ok. POSITIVES: It was clean, the staff was friendly, the rooms are large, and not far from any attractions or restaurants. NEGATIVES: They do not have an interior corridor to walk to indoor pool. The require you to walk outside, even when cold out, in your bathing suit. So I requested a room change closer to... More

Dear Superman201, Thank you for being our guest while you were in Pigeon Forge. I appreciate that you consider us to be "somewhat" reasonable and apologize that you feel your stay was not handled properly. However all of your statements are inaccurate and false and stem from the fact that you wanted a weekday rate on the weekend. Our rates... More

The only bad thing is we had to go outside to get to the pool. There is no changing room or anything by the pool. So you... More
