Rooms were very clean, staff was very friendly and helpful! This location is at the far end of Gatlinburg and was perfect! We parked the car when we got there and were able to walk to almost every place we wanted to go. The trolley stops right out front for any place you don't want to drive or walk.

We had been touring the Great Smokey Mountains all day, seeing Elk and Bears, visiting select tourist attractions in the Park. We arrived in Gatlinburg late afternoon and while some members of the group shopped, I looked for a hotel for the night. The first hotel we seen when leaving the National Park and entering Gatlinburg was the Clarion Inn.... More

4th floor to the back of the building. Didn't feel comfortable walking on carpet without shoes. Bathroom had no working overhead light nor did the exhaust fan work so the bathroom was so fogged up it took forever to clear the mirror. The shower curtain would not close so water went into floor when you showered. The fridge had the... More

We had booked a cabin through Gatlinburg Falls Resort, and were given bad directions, no map, and no help from customer service to locate the cabin ("It should be on your right," he said, as we look at a bunch of trees with NO CABIN). Obviously, we were tired and frustrated when we gave up on the search and checked... More

This was ok for one night. The place we were in the night before(another state)was so bad, anything would have been an improvement. My husband said to give this place a 5. The bed was comfortable and clean. Had plenty of hot water. The breakfast was good BUT, it was so crowded. When we first started eating, my husband was... More

We had never stayed at a Clarion before but had stayed at many choice properties with satisfactory results. We had never been to Gatlinburg before, so didn't know much about location of hotel to attractions. Upon check-in we were very pleased with the location, as it was at one end of town far enough away from all of restaurants and... More

We returned after a February trip of this year. Our second stay was just as good as the first. Richard was still serving up breakfast though we missed him one morning. We brought our grandson with us and he did his best to wear out the pool. The convenience to the trails and National Park was a plus. Our grandson... More

My wife and I decided to try this place out. Although a bit dated it was very clean and surprisingly quiet considering how busy things are around this place. The wifi was a little slow maybe too many people on at the same time. Beds were comfortable and the location to area site was about the best. The lady who... More

My daughter and I stayed here while visiting Great Smoky National Park. The rooms were nice, we had a decent size fridge and a balcony. The breakfast was good, we didn't have the fresh-made omelet but everyone seemed to be enjoying them. They do need more seating for breakfast though. The staff at the front desk and housekeeping were all... More
