4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

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 (Outdated spa tub, shower curtain rod about to fall off). We also had issues with the TVs not working. The hotel was at the end of the strip which was within walking distance to... More

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

We had gotten away for a girls weekend. We had never stayed in this location before, but wanted to be close to downtown Gatlinburg. The hotel staff was friendly when we checked in and helpful. The room was a little old, but very clean and comfortable. The only bad thing was the light from our balcony shined into the room... More

While not in the center of the action in Gatlinburg, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to be pretty quickly. We needed a pack and play for the baby and they provided one. The staff were very accomodating. The room was very clean. Multiple items on the free breakfast offered, including made to order omelets, blueberry waffles, biscuits,... More

We so enjoyed our stay on Fri & Sat night. We were able to up-grade our room to a city balcony which we loved. Had a great room on the 3rd floor. The hot tub and pool were great also. We really enjoyed the low-lighting at the indoor pool. We had a night time swim & it was superb! The... More

When we arrived at the hotel and went to check in we were overcharged $47.00. When we questioned them about it they told us we were charged $15.00/night for Hotel fees.

2nd time in 10 years staying in the Clarion. Location, location, location is awesome! Walk out the front door to eat, play, or relax! Front desk staff was very cordial and helpful. No problems with check-in or check-out. Room was clean and a nice size. However, it's time for some updating with the room decor, Pool area and exercise room.

We stayed at this location from August 1 - August 6 and had a great stay. It may be the best location for a hotel in Gatlinburg honestly. The hotel is at the end of the strip right at the entrance to the National Park and sits in between 5 different quality restaurants within less than a five minute walk.... More
