We stayed at this location several years ago and enjoyed it then, so we decided to try it out again. This most recent visit was just as nice as the first time. The hotel was still in good condition. There is plenty to do around the hotel that is within walking distance. River in the rear of the location is... More

It is not terrible but it was not great either.The pool was kind of small but I did not swim anyways. It was in a good location so we were able to do all of our activities. The breakfast could be better.

We took the grandkids to Pigeon Forge for the weekend and decided to stay here in part due to the reviews we read on here. After staying their I am shocked that anyone would rate this hotel a 3 or better. Part of the reason that we choose this hotel was the "indoor pool" I have to say the pool... More

My parents and I had found this hotel because we wanted to take a vacation in Tennessee. This was the only hotel available. It was very satisfying other than the breakfast. It was the same thing every day and was getting old. The pool caused a lot of noise bet we slept through it. Inside every room, there's a door... More

Overall our stay at Econo Lodge (2440 Parkway) was great and worry-free. Everything seemed to be immaculately clean (and it smelled nice when we first walked in), the bed was extremely comfortable, flat-screen TV was a plus, wireless Internet was strong and steady, and our room location was perfect - river view, around the corner from the pool area (nice...

We've been staying here since this hotel opened. Always very clean, Always friendly. And the breakfast is really good. They are constantly putting out fresh food. The location is nice, not too far from The Island. And feeding the ducks is always alot of fun. This time our daughter took a walk in the river to cool off. Can't imagine... More
