“great”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 13, 2012

We were blown away but the quality and cleaniness of this hotel. We absolutely loved it. We were going to Dollywood but after checking in the kids did not want to leave the hotel. The slide was awesome, free snow cones by the pool, and the breakfast....WOW. We loved it!

Thank You for the wonderful review and our staff always looks forward to serving you and making your stay the best possible.This time of year is always so beautiful here in the mountains and we have so many lights and festivities that the whole family has something they love or want to do next. Here at the Most Fun Place to stay in the Smokies, we always have Something New and Something Different no matter how many times you have stayed with us. Most customers that are repeat guests always notice that we are constantly trying to make the guests stay even better than the last. We hope that when going out and about in the area, that you will always check with the front desk about tickets or discounts no matter what your going to do. They are there to make life easier and less expensive while on that vacation. We look forward to your next stay with us and we appreciate you making us your Home away from Home. We hope you and yours have a Very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!!!

We normally rent a cabin while in Pigeon Forge, but our last cabin was a horible experience and of all the cabins we've stayed in, none of them are not kept up very well. This hotel was fabulous! We saved money and loved the spacious room and spacious bathroom. We will for sure make this or favorite place to stay in Pigeon Forge and the location is perfect! Clean, friendly staff, good breakfast....what more could we ask for?

Traditional Vacations are great and we all look forward to them, especially with family. However, they do need fine tunning from time to time as it's nice to know what to expect. The only surprise we like to give our guest is the savings and how much more Fun the next stay will be from the last. We always like to have Something for everyone and we always look forward to welcoming our return guests back home. Traditional vacations should be fun and hassel free and thats why our front desk is there to help you with all your needs while booking and staying with the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge. Don't forget to blog and / or tweet us and tell your friends as well, while looking us up on face book. We always announce our winners of our January and Febuary Polar Bear giveawys on Facebook and that contest will be going on here at the Clarion this coming winter as well. We look forward to your return visit anytime, and we hope to see you again soon...Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!!!

Great experience, our first stay in a Clarion hotel. My husband & I, our son & wife + our 2 granddaughters for 2 nites. Our king & double queen room adjoined. Entire hotel is non-smoking, beds were comfortable, clean, well appointed bathrooms, a wardrobe closet, dresser drawers, refrigerator, microwave & safe & coffee maker. An extra cot was provided in case one of the children needed it. The front desk mgm't were extremely courteous, accomodating, ready to answer any question. I noticed they kept an eye on guests comings & goings, as well as the breakfast room to be sure all was well. Beds have comforters with removable cover, plus top sheet & good blanket, clean and sanitary, VERY important to me. A full breakfast included in the rate was excellent, plus they have a cook to make a custom omelet. In season, there is outdoor pool and slide, and they have an indoor pool and hot tub, gym, washers/dryers. We left happy, congratulating ourselves that we found this hotel., also convenient to at least 3 great restaurants and a nice 'strip' mall of shops a short walk across the parking lot, also a mini-golf park. We give the Clarion Inn 5 STARS!

Room Tip: Our 5th floor adjoining rooms, each with a small balcony, were very good, no complaints, no noise. T...

Thank You for the 5 star review. The great thing about having a 5 star hotel with 5 star service is that you get 5 Star Customers! We appreciate your having stayed with us and we are glad you enjoyed your stay and visit to the Smokey Mountains. We always have Something New and Something Different here at the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge and we hope you have now found your Home away from Home. Our location lends itself well for things to do without even getting in your car. The movie theater here at The Landing is very convienient and we sell the tickets at the front desk at a savings, just like all the other attrction and show tickets in town. We also can show you the secrets to avoiding any traffic or scedule problems, just ask our team at the front desk. We always want your stay to be the best and look forward to your next stay here at the most fun place to stay in the Smokies!!!

This is our 2nd stay at the clarion in pigeon forge on thanksgiving. It was perfect just like last year. Check in is quick, hotel has the feel of "being back home." Decorated for Christmas, smell of fresh baked cookies and a staff that is waiting to serve you is what you will find when you walk in the door . Full hot breakfast included with your stay. Fresh cooked waffles and omelets at your request. My 5 year old granddaughter loves the indoor pool, hot fresh popcorn and cookies each evening. We did miss the singer that was there last year but there were other guest that played the piano and sang Christmas carols in the lobby. If you decide to leave the hotel, there are lots of great places to eat and shop in walking distance. Also a Kroger, service station and other little quick stops behind the hotel. If you are looking for a "perfect place to stay at a good price" this is it. This is now our family's "Thanksgiving tradition"

There is always excitement and joy in creating a traditional time together with family. We are so excited to know we are a part of your tradition in visiting the Great Smokey Mountains each year. We will always try to have Something New and Something Different here for folks no matter if you are a first time guest, or a repeat guest. Our front desk staff is there to make your stay easier and hassel free when making plans to go to a show or attraction, not to mention the money it saves you. There is so much to see and do here in the Great Smokey Mountains and the East Tennessee area. We hope to always be your "Traditional Destination Point" for your family, and always your Home away from Home here at the Most Fun Place to stay at the Clarion Inn...Pigeon Forge, Tennessee!!!!

We made the reservations with Seth who recommended we stay on the 6th floor, which was great. Then, when we arrived, check-in was a breeze. From there, Bruce took care of us giving us ideas for sights and checking in to make sure we were having a good time. The breakfast was delicious and when there was no seating in the room, they set up additional seating in the lobby, which was beautifully decorated. The room was clean, the ceilings were high, and the view was beautiful. We walked to Calhoun's to eat and both the service and the food were spot on.

Room Tip: 6th floor in the back

Thank You for staying with us and we are glad you liked Calhouns Restaurant next door, they are also on our one touch star service feature and deliver food directly over to the hotel. The menus are located in your information book in the rooms and there are also three other restaurants here at the Landing and the movie theater, as well as the shops, the two putt putt corses and the attraction called the Tomb! The hotel is well situated for extra things to do close by and has easy access to the other areas of the city, once you know the secret...Ask the front desk for help on getting around town and where and what to do, they can help make your stay a much happier one. We look forward to your next stay here at the most Fun Place to stay in the SMOKIES!!!

We went to Pigeon Forge for a weekend holiday shopping spree. I saw that the hotel rated well on tripadvisor and booked in advance and recieved a rate of $75 a night with our Choice Hotel membership card.
The hotel is almost in the center of town which makes it convenient for shopping and dinning.
The hotel was well appointed and the staff was friendly and courteous. The free breakfast is a nice extra but after a long day of shopping the free massage chairs and comfortable beds were tops on my list of amenities.
Overall a nice place to stay and we will stay here again when we are in the area.

Thank You for your review and with choice hotels you have an advatage of booking 30 days out on a nonrefundable stay in order to get the best rate possible. We want everyone to get the best deal possible and we believe we have created it with all the opportunities that we give our customer. Most of the amenities and services we offer are a charge in all other hotels or they just don't offer them. It takes a big budget to run a hotel that includes so many free services and amenities that we offer. But we believe those guests, like ytourself, are well worth it because they are return guests, they tell their friends, and they appreciate all that yiou have and do for the guests. Our staff loves serving guests like ytourself because at the end of the day they know it's all worth while. Thank You again for staying with us and for making us your home away from home here at the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge, Tennessee....Happy Holidays to you and yours and we look forward to your next visit!!

This was our first time here but it will not be our last time. Breakfast buffet was one of best we have ever had with a hotel stay. It included fresh fruit, made to order omlets, biscuits with gravy, waffles etc. The beds were very comfortable which is important to me because of my arthritis. Nice choice of pillows too. The staff we had contact with were all very pleasant especially the manager, Scott Ellis. The HVAC was quiet but efficient. Have no negative comments. They also have an in house spa which I plan to take advantage of at another stay.

We are so glad you stayed with us and we hope you are doing good today. A good nights sleep and a comfortable stay are important, and even more important if you don't feel well on a regular basis. We are so glad your stay was comfortable and that we even have additional amenities such as a Spa that can pamper you even futher. We hope the Spa services will help you in the future Pat, and we will look forward in hosting you and your husband again soon. When you go to book your reservation don't forget to call and ask for 321 so you can book your Spa appointment. Thank You for staying with us and we hope you have a Mery Christmas and A Happy New Year!
