We were given room 617, on the front side of the building. Great view! The breakfast was wonderful, everything you would want! Additionally,... More

Just got back from a stay at this hotel. I booked a stay because of so many glowing reviews of the property. My opinions, however, are quite different that most of the reviews I've read on here. One of a hotel's primary functions is a place to rest (and hopefully sleep) peacefully. This cannot be accomplished easily at this property.... More

I stayed here with my mother for 2 nights on a recent trip to Pigeon Forge. The staff was friendly, the room was clean and quiet. The beds were comfortable. In fact, I had been involved in an auto accident earlier in the week and was in pain from broken ribs, but was as comfortable as one can expect to... More

My family of five stayed at the Clarion Inn in Pigeon Forge for 3 nights, and we had a wonderful experience! The pool/slide area is rather small but was enjoyed by all. The breakfast was delicious! My daughter and husband found the biscuits and gravy to be equivalent to if not better than Hardees. The hotel and room were impressive!... More
