We absolutely loved our stay here! We had a room on the top floor with a balcony facing parkway. Our room was clean and all the front desk clerks were super friendly and helpful, especially Tyler . Even the housekeeping staff was very friendly which you rarely see. The breakfast was good but I agree with most others that the... More

We loved the location of this hotel, right on the parkway. It is practically at the very end of the parkway, right before you go into the mountains. We did not notice too much noise from the parkway, and it was very convenient to walk to restaurants and shopping. The room was decent - better than some others that we... More

We usually rent cabins for our stay in Gatlinburg but we unexpectedly found ourselves in town on a spur of the moment trip and decided to stay at The Clarion. The property was very nice, the staff was excellent! They were very helpful and went out of their way to make us welcome. Our stay was without a single problem.... More

Nice hotel! Would have given it 5 stars but the breakfast brought it down. Nice variety of food offered, but NO WHERE to eat because of the small and crowded dining area! They serve between 7 and 10am, which is actually an hour later than most, but unless you get down there at 7 the place is packed! Such a... More

Overall the room and facility was nice. Suite was spacious and had a nice size jacuzzi. The shower had some black marks on the walls but we wiped that off with some Clorox shower cleaner. Had a great time in Gatlinburg.

While the hotel is nice the beds are OK the balconies are not private and they charge a 15 dollar service fee to stay here on top of all the other charges. The pool was in very bad shape, cracks everywhere. Needs a paint job and had green algie on the sides. They show a hot tub on their ads... More

The location is great. You can walk to everything on the main strip of Gatlinburg. There are restaurants within a pebbles throw of your room. I also enjoyed the views from the balcony. But I have to say the best part of the Clarion Inn & Suites is the sweet older gentleman that makes the made to order omelets. This... More

This was one of the worst hotel experiences I think I have ever had. Nothing to do with staff. They were all very pleasant. The problems were not their fault. Housekeeping staff were especially friendly. There really should be more than one person at the front desk of such a large hotel in the middle of the tourist season. I... More

Loved how close this hotel is to the National Park entrance. The room was nice! I thought there could have been more of a variety of items at breakfast. Upon checkout I noticed a service fee charge of $45.00. When asked what this was for the clerk replied for incidentals such as the newspaper, etc. WATCH OUT for this hidden... More
