I gave this motel 4 stars, not because it is a 4 star place, but because the quality of the place is excellent for the low price tag. I knew that I was not going to be spending much time in my motel on my short stay in Pigeon Forge, so I booked the cheapest room I could find on... More

My wife and I arrived in Pigeon Forge late Wednesday night after driving 9 hours. We drove the strip all the way through gatlinburg looking for a decent hotel to stay the night until we check in at our best western plaza in for the rest of the week. We thought this hotel was ok.

Thanks for your comments. Most of the TVs are now flat panel 32 in with just a few more to be installed over the next two weeks. About price, we just took over management after your review and you will find the prices much more affordable now. Thanks, Eric New Ownership and Management Team More

We walked in on Saturday to check on a room. We asked to see their handicapped room and found it suited our needs perfectly. We were on the ground floor and was very quite. The front desk clerk (I didn't get her name) was very friendly. We went into the office later that evening and she made a fresh pot... More

Thanks to kind invitation of new management, latest reviews and talking with a friend who was there recently, we gave Smokey Meadows another try under the new management. We stayed there for the car show held Sept.11-14. There was a vast difference in the hotel from last September when we refused to stay there. New bedding was very comfortable although... More

I stayed there July 21-23 2014 and the place has been renovated. I have stayed there for years and just love the view. The hotel also gives you a free pancake breakfast across the street or you can upgrade to the buffet for 5 dollars. Heated pool stays open all night.

We are the Ewing Family. We came into Pigeon Forge on a Thursday night without a reservation. Drove up and down the parkway, on both sides, trying to find a place that wasn't gonna cost and arm and a leg to stay 2 nights.
