I was petrified knowing I would be staying with family here after I ran across the horrible reviews. In the end it was not so bad, I NEVER think any hotel room is clean enough and never allow my children to touch the comforters. I survived my one night stay at the Black Bear Inn. We didn't see any critters... More

This hotel is so run down and nasty its a wonder the health department lets them stay open. Sheets stained, tub dirty, water leaks from the sink. Apparently they have weekly rentals because all these crackheads come out at night hanging out in the parking lot. Every time i entered or exited the room they ask me for a cigarette,... More

We were asked to leave with no refund after four hours because we were sitting on the porch in front of our room drinking alcohol and smoking I guess they were afraid that the police would come and discover there methlab. Lots of people I can only describe as drug addicts in the parking lot I would rather sleep under... More

We decided to take a spur of the moment trip during holiday weekend and unforchantly the Scenic was the only establishment that offered vacancy…. No wonder! The place was filthy! Roaches were crawling on the walls. Silver fish in the tub. The windows had spots, carpet stained, bathroom smelled of mold. When I turned the sheets down we found a... More

Yes. If there is a "Poster Boy" for the phrase "Roach Motel", it's the Scenic Motel in Pigeon Forge TN. I booked a reservation there for me and my son to stay 4 days in town through Expedia 2 1/2 weeks prior and was looking forward to this trip. When we arrived, had to hunt down the manager/owner "WHO WAS... More

Stayed here on Aug 7, 2010-Aug 9, 2010. This place is Bad news! I checked in the motel thinking that I was getting a good deal. There where no problems until I got to the room. To start off the room smelled like old crusty feet and the room was very runned down. The room was so bad that I... More

Traveled to the area for an overnight get-away. Didn't check reviews first - what a mistake! It was late when we got our room, and at our age the first thing we don't do any longer is check out the bed! After putting our overnight bags in the room, sitting in spray painted lawn chairs off so called balcony --... More
