our Corvette club goes to Pigeon Forge a lot and we like staying here. They have some covered parking which we really like and great location. I''m going back this weekend for the Corvette Expo. The rate on Trip Advisor is $111 I called the hotel and they gave me a rate of $80!! Booked it with the hotel!!

Stayed here recently. It was pretty decent. The family suite was small but very clean. Loved the fire place! The staff was very friendly. The pool is very small but very clean and we were able to swim in February because it is an indoor pool, which is a plus. The only problem we had was the pull out couch... More

My husband and I stayed here on our wedding night 18 years ago. We returned this past year to find everything even better than I remembered! Jill and staff were amazingly friendly. The pool was heated perfectly, and very nice for a late night swim. As for the room, we couldn't have asked for more! The fireplace was cozy and... More

Their ad for a fireplace and jacuzzi seemed a likely setting for some needed rest and relaxation. The staff was courteous and their office displays an award for 2014 from Trip Advisor. We were a bit disappointed that the fireplace wasn't wood-burning but was gas( I figure due to Insurance cost). The room had drapes and bedspread that appeared outdated.... More
