Other than that, slept good and appeared to be a good value. Breakfast was ok- eggs, toast, grits, oatmeal, biscuits with gravy, sausage, canned... More

I got a river-view room with a hot tub, and although some of the controls were broken, the set-up was lovely. The room was sparkling clean, with a refrigerator and a microwave, and the free breakfast is a great way to start the day. I didn't use the pool, but I enjoyed watching the river and all the water birds.... More

We were very happy with this hotel. It was an awesome value for the family suite. We had a king size bed in a separate room from our kids, it was two hotel rooms with an adjoining door. The kids had bunk beds which they loved. They also had a couch, table and chairs and their own TV. It was... More

My bad experience began at moment of check in by Adam. His monotone voice said nane, credit card and map to room. He wasn't friendly or engaging. Seemed like he wanted to be anywhere but the front desk. I asked him if Hatfield and McCoy show was fun. He said I don't know. Nothing more. First impression sets the tone... More

Rooms were clean, but really small. Good thing we didn't have to spend much time other than sleeping there. Air conditioner was really really loud. Made it hard to sleep a good nights rest. But after night 3, we kind of got use to it. No working vent in bathroom. Pool was nice, however, kids and adults going wild jumping... More

We were passing through Pigeon Forge and we were only staying one night. The staff was very helpful in accommodating us. I had my parents with me who are 80 and 84. They made sure we had a 1st floor room, which was so nice. We were impressed with the cleanliness. The breakfast area included a nice area outside. The... More
