Housekeeping is not very thorough. Sheets were never changed the entire time we were there (3 days). Toilet paper was apparently hard to come by there since it was never replaced. WiFi was horribly slow, basically dial up slow. Parking is a joke, and there really is not much that it is actually near... next time, I would pay a... More

My husband and I booked a king fireplace suite at this property because of the great pricing! It was all looking good until we opened the door to our room, the smell would almost knock you down, it was very musky and old smelling. The carpet was absolutely horrific! We then walked into the room and looked around. The bed... More

Our room was nice and cleat. Park View Inn is in a great location and was very affordable. We had some car trouble on our second night and the Assistant Manager, David, came on his own time in his own car and picked us up in Pigeon Forge and took us back to the hotel. I don't know what we... More

Clean, comfortable, inexpensive, great location, and nice view from our room on the sundeck. Staff was friendly and knowledgeable about the area. My 5 year old loved making his own waffle at breakfast. We plan on staying here again when we return in the fall.

My family had just completed our family vacation. We spent Monday through Friday in a 2 Queen bed room with Jacuzzi. Room was clean and orderly, staff was very helpful with all questions and even gave helpful hints to enjoy a more local experience. Literally, five minutes walking to Aquarium! We are planning our next vacation with this Hotel.

Me and my husband just left this hotel. We stayed there March 29 - April 2. Before our stay some of these comments and ratings had me skeptical but we decided to go on since it was cheap and we had already booked it. We were pleased with the hotel. They are remodeling right now but it wasn't loud. Our... More

Visited Gatlinburg October 8-12th 2014 for a wedding. We decided to stay at this hotel due to the low cost. We arrived at the hotel around 1AM after being stuck in traffic for 4 hours. Once we entered the room I was immediately not impressed. The room looked dirty and dingy. It had a very strange smell that I could... More
