This hotel was not perfect, but I was amazed at what we got for the price. The good points: Staff was great. Location is convenient. The prices might be higher in the summer, but we got a great bargain for our February stay. Oh, and there's that little thing called an INDOOR HEATED POOL with hot tub. Our stay in... More

Went to Pigeon Forge for our kids' winter break. Had a great time and loved the wintery weather. Great hotel and very decent breakfast. Do yourself a favor though, don't stay near the pool during busy times. Especially if there are a lot of kids at the hotel. Lots of noise til the pool closes at 11pm. Other than that,... More

As usual this property scores high with our last visit going from last of December through the first week of the new year, January 2015. The "entire" front desk staff including the G.M. and all house keepers, go out of their way to be friendly. All staff make certain your accommodations from beginning to end are satisfactory. This property is... More

Overall this was a good hotel. However, we were disappointed that we never had the chance to use the pool or hot tub because there was about 30 people in them every time we walked by. But the hotel was sold out so it was just a busy weekend. If we would have gone in it though we would have... More

Dear harleymoni, Thank you for being our guest while in Pigeon Forge. We are an extremely popular hotel and are sold out on most weekends which can make our pool area at certain times the place to be for all guests. Next time you stay with us you can request a bottom floor pool area room to ensure that you... More

This is a very nice hotel and right in the middle of a bunch of the main attractions. Very fair price for what they have to offer. Recommend to bring your own pillow as the ones they had are my only complaint....

We went here with our family. The location was great! The deal we got was equally as great. It was very clean and the pool was well kept. The only reason I am giving it 4 out of 5 is the drains made noise all night. It kept us up at night till I put on a youtube on my... More

Good prices, clean room, nice folks. We stay here often and never had a bad stay. The beds are comfortable, pillows are good. We had dead batteries on the door lock this time and couldn't get in. And the fix it guy was there in no time and fixed it with a smile. Nothing bad to say.

Great hotel in a fantastic spot! My two year old enjoyed the indoor pool (kiddie pool was separate from big pool and only a foot deep) ... only complaint is that it was tricky to get to from the 2nd/3rd floor. Temperature inside for the pool temp and especially air temp could have been warmer, but when its 25 out,... More

This place has a kiddy pool which is nice with little kids. The rooms are always clean and friendly staff. The location is nice beside the river and a short walk to Waldings landing. We have stayed here multiple times and highly recommend it.
