Due to being rated #1 on Trip Advisor for Pigeon Forge Hotels my expectations were high. Happily those expectations were not only met but exceeded. Had interaction with various staff from the General Manager to the day Maintenance worker. It was apparent the pride that was displayed in providing both excellent service and facilities. Room was perfect. Breakfast bountiful. Common... More

As we entered the Hotel not really knowing what to expect, we were greeted by a very friendly lady. Check-in was amazingly easy. We had pre-booked and all I had to do was present my Credit Card and everything was ready. She went thru the details of what all the Hotel offered. gave Us a book of amusement discounts as... More

I originally booked this 3 months ago for 4 rooms. I called to make special arrangements for check in and realized I had made the reservations for one night instead of two. No rooms available for second night. I talked to hotel twice and they told me if I could find another location there was still time to cancel without... More

Great value! We stayed here on the Recommendation of more than 1000 Trip Advisor members and they were right on target. This hotel was right in the middle of Pigeon Forge's entertainment/dining area and had a very nice complimentary hot breakfast. I would recommend a stay here to anyone.

There are alot of Clarion hotels across the USA that are average at best, but this one should be what all the rest strive to be. The location just off the main drag can make it tough to find at night. Dont stay anywhere else in town.

This is 3rd time we have stayed at the hotel this year. There is a reason this is number one rated hotel in Pigeon Forge. The lobby is very nice decorated. Has indoor pool and hot tub along with outdoor lazy river and slides. Between 7 and there is a meet and greet with free cookies and popcorn. We ate... More

Every positive thing said about this hotel is absolutely true! My wife and I have stayed in multiple hotels in the area, and we both agreed this is our new home away from home after checking out this morning. The staff were all warm and welcoming and the overall atmosphere of the hotel was perfect. The room was spacious and... More

A very very nice property with an excellent breakfast! Tucked away from the parkway but very close to the convention center. Balconies have nice views of the mountains. Staff was very good and seem to care about the property.

Lacy did a good job checking us in. Room doors are angled, I think to reduce hall noise. Our room's central air worked well and was quiet. Our room had an adequately sized work table and very fast internet connection. They had free snacks from 7 to 8 PM which was cookies and popcorn. Breakfast was cooked to order omelets,... More

This was a girls trip and we had a great time. There were plenty of attractions within walking distance or a short drive. Looked forward to the great breakfast buffet each morning. Very nice open airy lobby to visit instead of staying in the room. Nice sized, clean rooms and comfy bed. Definitely would stay here again!
