We stayed for 3 nights during our Spring Break and enjoyed our stay for the most part. The room was great, clean and newly remodeled. The beds were very comfortable and it was quiet for sleeping at night. The breakfast was great if you show up at 7:30 a.m. If you show up later you stand in line for a... More

We loved our 4 night stay! Rooms were clean and very spacious. Pool was nice and warm. Parking was fine, and the hotel is close to many attactions, but not stuck in the middle of the Spring Break chaos! My only complaint was about breakfast. The line was so long each morning that we were not going to stand in... More

The hotel was way above average. First, let me say how clean the hotel was. Check in was a breeze. The hotel was booked during the time we were there. However, it was very quiet. We were on the Riverside and it was a beautiful view, especially with the snow and ducks. We never had beakfast there so I cannot... More

This hotel is not your typical Econo Lodge. It is located in a great location with easy access to the Parkway. We had a 2 Queen streetside room. It has 2 Queen beds, a mini-fridge and a microwave. It was very clean and nicely appointed. The hotel was booked almost to the max and yet it was very quiet. The... More

Our room was decorated very tastfuly. We could park right in front of our room. Breakfast was good over the top infact. We wish we would have just stayed here for our vacation insted of paying a fortune for a cabin. Next time we visit Pigon Forge we will stay here the whole trip!

We stayed for several days on the poolside and could walk out of our door to the pool without getting cold. Pool and jacuzzi was lots of fun - pool is from 3-5 feet deep and was warm. Room was CLEAN and nicely decorated and a little small. We used the in-room refrigerator, hair dryer and iron w/ironing board as... More
