Good room but small. In walking distance to downtown. Even had a bear in the parking lot the night we stayed. Room was clean, bed was good an the bath a little on the small size but was OK. If you want to eat breakfast you better get up early, it get crowded.

We were down in Gatlinburg last June and walked by the Clarion and really liked the location and the appearance. We booked a three night stay for our Anniversary.

This hotel is ok. The room was nice and the bed was very comfortable. The room was in the back overlooking the private parking area and an indoor pool. The hotel is located toward the end of the strip across the street from Texas roadhouse. I was surprised at the nice fresh hot breakfast buffet that was open until 10:00am... More

Rooms were clean, but in the bathrooms there was just a pedistal sink, nowhere to put your bath items. The TV would not work, maintenance had to come and fix, which took better part of the day. Staff was very friendly and willing to help. I asked to be moved, because they put us in a handicap accessible room. I... More

I have stayed here several times over the years. The location is great on the strip. I stayed in one of the king balconies facing the street. The room was very clean but it did show signs of wear. The balconies are pretty close together also. The hotel overall was exceptionally clean and the staff was great. The made to... More

The pros of this hotel are that it is located close to the entrance of the Smokey Mountains. We chose this hotel solely for this reason so we wouldn't have to drive thru the Gatlinburg traffic. It's an easy walk to the Sky Needle, Ripleys, and several restaurants. Also, they have made-to-order omelettes for breakfast which are very delicious. In... More

We stayed in a king suite which was very spacious for 2 adults and 2 children. The room was fairly clean, although some updates are needed. (Outdated spa tub, shower curtain rod about to fall off).

Perfect location downtown Gatlinburg. Walking distance to shops and good restaurants. One block from entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park. Friendly staff, comfortable rooms, and excellent cook to order omelet breakfast.

We've stayed many places in Gatlinburg, and this is the best so far. The hotel is situated on the end of town going towards the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, making it out of the way of most of the hustle and bustle. However, it is still close enough to walk to all of the downtown attractions that Gatlinburg has... More
