“You get what you pay for! Pin Oak Inn”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed March 19, 2013

I cant say this was the worst place I have stayed but it is on the list! We were late making our way back to Pigeon Forge and didn't have any reservations and just stopped on a whim. Most people probably would have check out but we "roughed" it. One of the beds had blood stains on the flat and fitted sheet you could tell it was an old stain. The room was very out-dated, from the extremely bouncy bed to the almost see through bath towels. If there were no where else to stay in town and the price was super low I might would stay here again.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed November 3, 2012

Me and my husband needed somewhere to stay cheap for just one night! The lady at the front desk was very nice! There was hairs on the sheets so thank goodness we brought our own linens. but for what we paid $45 (thats with tax) on a weekend i was impressed because i have stayed @ very exspensive hotels with hairs on the sheets! the bed was comfy & i like the locaton very easy to get in & out of the hotel & its right off of the parkway! we would stay here again!

Room Tip: Rooms in the rear are quieter than those in the front

Pros........the jacuzzi tub & hot water/water pressure.....after we thoroughly cleaned the bathroom & tub
Cons.........to sum it up........everything!!!!!!
1. Stingy with the towels......and I'm not sure how clean they were
2. Spiders/webs......my husband walked through one as soon as we entered the room....if you have aranchnaphobia stay elsewhere
3. Outdated & ran down......looked nothing like the pictures....
felt like we had stepped back in time to 1970....the most modern thing in the room was the tv,which was a 1995 model
4. The "seedy" people who reside at the place and let their kids run around the property till 1 or 2 in the morning
5. Broken light fixtures hanging from the bathroom ceiling and broken pictures on the wall

I wouldn't suggest this place to my worst enemy!! This place is a health and safety hazzard.....it should be condemed and pushed over a mountain!!!

The worst hotel my family has ever stayed at. Cockroaches bed bugs centipedes spiders etc. A Family lives on site with a little one that they never put to bed. Druggies and crackheads in and out all hours of the night. And they make terrible noises and are very rude. Bugs crawling in every area. The pool was soooo small. Bedding was awful. DO NOT STAY HERE. You have a microwave big enough for a hot pocket. Small coffee maker without a pot although they bring u coffee cups and coffee knowing that u do not have a pot. Tv goes in and out. Blood spots on mattresses. Stains on bedding. I will never in my life ever stay here again. Please pay extra for a better room. The onsite family or whomever stays there goes home cause they work in the office too and no one is in office when you need toiletries or towels etc. Breakfast consists of one box of krispy kreme glazed doughnuts and coffee or orange juice. Wow!!! DO NOT STAY HERE!!!!!! MORE COULD BE SAID BUT I WOULD BE TYPING ALL NIGHT!

This is the nastiest place ever!! There was body hair and body fluids on the sheets!! The staff was extremely rude and had all her family there swimming in the pool!! I went and complained about the sheets and she offered to give me clean ones to change myself... They wouldn't give a refund and I ended up just leaving and going to The Best Western!! If you want to stay at the red carpet inn make sure all your shots are up to date because you may leave with more than you came with.

The room was very small, but the desk staff was friendly and it was clean. I enjoyed my stay.
