Unbelievable Continental Breakfast.Everything about this Inn is great.I hesitate to tell how good it is for fear there won't be anything available if my wife and I decide to go back.We couldn't have been more pleased.Everyone from the manager to the maid was so nice and knowledgeable about the area. You won't be disappointed.

Room Tip: Keeping that to myself. We did not use the Spa, too busy taking in the shows.

Thank You for the great compliments and we have more than 48 items on our breakfast bar and our breakfast is one best liked item behind our massage chairs here at the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge. When full the hotel serves between 350 and 400 people for breakfast in a 3 hour time period and puts out alot of food. We strive everyday for folks to be well fed, sleep comfortable and have as many amenities as possible. If you want to go the extra step and pamper a friend or family member, you could always get a gift certificate for our inhouse Spa. We have many different ways to make life easier and hassel free all while saving you money and giving you the best. We look forward to your next stay no matter what your visiting the area for...

Thank You Chris for your review and we do try to keep all the guests well informed about all the shows and attractions. There is so much to see and do here in the Smokies. We have everything here except beach front and we are only 6 hours from the wonderful Myrtle Beach area who has Ripleys and Dolly's Pirates Voyage. So when your adventurous and want it all, the Mountains and the Beach can be done in a week. So when in the mountains we would love to see you here at the Clarion Inn.

We normally use tripadvisor.com in selecting hotels/motels, especially in a tourism-based city. We chose Clarion Inn on Waldens Main Street in Pigeon Forge, TN for our visit on 11/9 - 11/12/12 based on numerous excellent reviews. This was a great decision! Our treatment and accommodations were first class. General Manager Scott Ellis contacted us in the lobby and breakfast area twice during the visit inquiring how accommodations were and if this visit was pleasant. He gave suggestions on shows to see and places to eat in Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. He introduced a bird in the lobby to children with their parents. Mr. Ellis makes a very good impression with his appearance and helpfulness. The breakfast had an outstanding selection and all staff were friendly and courteous.

Room Tip: Research on line for reviews and photos.

From the moment we checked in at the desk, these folks could not have been more welcoming.
I stay in Hotels in my business a lot. This was a SUPER SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY Inn.
The next morning the rest of the staff was great also. The manager made every effort to ask if we needed anything several times. I highly recommend this Clarion Inn. It is not hidden away in the mountains but very close to stores on the main drive there in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. The value for this Inn. is very good also. Fresh cooked to order Omelets and other breakfast items. There is also a Hospitality treat around 5pm everyday. Just a great place!!! A+++++

Room Tip: Get a room with the Hot Tub.

Thank You for noting our Southern Hospitality and we will always welcome our guests with the Charm and Beauty of thr Great Smoky Mountains. The staff appreciates your kind words and for choosing us as your Home away from Home. Being clean, comfortable, and having a very broad breakfast were our first priorities in serving our guests. We then back that with customer service from the front of the house to the back of the house. Without servitude, you can't complete the recipe for a great stay for your customers. We want all our customers to feel as though they are in their Home away from Home when staying with us. Thank You for making us , yours'. We will see you here at Home, on your next visit !
