Located right on the busy strip in Pigeon Forge, James Manor was a great choice for our group of 4. To save money, we roomed together, and luckily our room was located on the backside, away from the traffic and facing the large ferris wheel. Our room did not have a balcony, but that wasn't a priority. We wanted a... More

This is the fourth visit to the James Manor for us. We stay every July for a family reunion. The rate they give us is great for the time of year. It is convenient for us and the attractions that we enjoy visiting. The option of an indoor and outdoor pool is nice. Most all of the front desk staff... More

I used to Manage hotels, so I tend to be a bit leanient when there are slight mishaps, such as, an unkeeped and unstocked pool area or non-functioning elevator. However, when it comes to the condition of my room and basic questions, I expect that all housekeeping and front desk associates are trained thoroughly to provide a superior level of... More

After a mishap at another hotel , this place is where my family came to stay. Very clean and polite staff. Could use a bit of a "refresh" here and there, but overall WE LOVED IT. We will book a room here again.

We stayed here for one day and night and that will be the last. We decided to spend our last night here due to the location. The place is outdated to say the least. The decor in our room could definitely use a renovation. There was a moderate hole in the paneling beside the bathroom door. After noticing some of... More

We are currently at this hotel, and it is terrible. The facilities are mostly gross - not clean, outdated, etc. Almost every staff person we have encountered has been, at best, unhelpful. Most of them are rude. Our room looks directly at the big The Island sign, and there are no room darkening shades to block out the intense and... More

Stayed at James Manor in September for 10 years. In 2012, we reported seeing a bed bug on the pillow. It was investigated & reported to us that it was an ant. In 2013, same room, we got up in the middle of the night & when turning on the light discovered bedbugs. We did not get an apology. The... More

Indoor hot tub and pool can be a plus, or it can do what the James manor has done. Walking in the front door you are meet with a slap to the senses and then the burning from Ll the chlorine in the air hits the lungs. Later at the outdoor pool you are created with ice raining down from... More

Don’t forget to stick around after dark and catch the wheel as it lights up for a spectacular LED light show! The Island is located right behind our hotel.
