My wife and I stayed here 3 nights and we both were very impressed. It is probably the best value for the buck in Pigeon Forge. The staff will bend over backwards for you if you have special needs. The rooms are clean and spacious. They have a little different type of door lock and it works like a charm.... More

Pigeon Forge is a place full of choices for motel stays....and few have been worth the time. Coming into the area for business last minute I stopped without a reservation and was met with courtesy and service that made me feel I was a welcome old friend not a stranger! The room was equipped with a kitchenette, the bathroom was... More

We definitely love this place! The staff are all very nice and cheerful! And we love to pick and cut up so that was a bonus from the start. The owner is super nice and you can tell she is down to earth which was another bonus! We had a very clean room! Our towels and sheets were very clean!... More

We will be retuning.P.S. if you forget something from home Food City is beside it

The room is ok, the towels are not clean enough. We stayed two night at room 111. We barely have wifi to use, I have to stand in front of our door to reach the internet but very weak. The pool water is scary, dirty. We took a look and decided not to use it. But the Jacuzzi in our... More

We are really satisfied with the rooms and the staff are very nice. I wouldnt stay any where else. This is a home away from home. That is how they treat you. The rooms are very clean and the staff is always making sure everything is good.

We visit Pigeon Forge about once a year, this is the worse hotel I have ever stayed in. Paper thin walls. Dirty room. Most unprofessional staff. For what we paid we could have stayed with professional chain motel that provides quality service and accommodations. Don't trust positive reviews on this hotel. Their friends are flooding site with positive reviews
