We visit Pigeon Forge often and we were definitely pleased to find this hotel. The rooms were the cleanest by far. We saw housekeeping clean a room where a couple had checked out and they are thorough. The staff was exceptionally friendly and helpful. The location is also very convenient - walking distance to attractions in town plus The Island.... More

Was charged $280+ on top of room rates for "smoking" in room. We do not smoke. Tried to talk to manager, but was told it was policy. Policy to charge non-smokers a $250+tax charge for smoking in the room?? Blood on mattress cover. Was told it was pizza sauce....do not recommend staying at this poorly managed foreign owned business.

We are sorry that you feel this way. The fact is that our property is 100% smoke free. When you checked in, you were told again and you signed the folio which clearly states that there will be a violation fees of $250 plus sales tax for smoking in the room or any where on the property. The evidence of... More

We enjoyed our stay tremendously. The staff very accommodating. The room very clean. Beds were too hard.Provide a desk area in the room. Breakfast was ok, but also suggest more healthy items. Fruit, yogurt, and boiled eggs.

I read the reviews after we arrived & I have to say some of them made me very nervous! Everyone that we dealt with was very nice & helpful. We had a room on the back facing the Island...the lights did not bother us at all! We found nothing wrong with the breakfast. The only negatives I have are: *... More

Stayed during Christmas weekend, was a very pleasurable experience, as always. The staff is always helpful and friendly. The rooms are spacious and clean, and a decent complimentary breakfast, makes for a wonderful stay. The proximity to the island and other attractions are ideal. We have stayed here too many times to count, never a bad experience.

It's an older hotel and the rooms are showing wear but they are clean and spacious. We had a two room family suite #515. The views of the parkway are great. My only disappointment was with the coffee, powdered cream only - gag. The hotel is very close to the island and lots of attractions, so you can leave your... More

Stayed at James Manor earlier this month with a large group. When I got to my room the first thing I did was to check the sheets and mattress. The sheets were clean, but the mattress cover had something all over it. When I ask the lady at the desk if they could put a clean mattress cover on the... More

I picked this hotel due to the location and the fact it had balconies...I was going to book it thru Hotels.com but in order to guarantee a balcony I called the hotel and booked through them which did cost me more...upon arrival they said they had nothing down about room preference!
