We stayed at the Clarion one night, I chose it because It had great reviews on trip advisor plus it was a choice hotel so i could earn rewards. Driving into Pigeon Forge, It was super easy to find. The location was in the right spot. Not so close to the main road that you heard traffic and noise, but close enough to walk around if you wanted. The hotel looked clean and shiny upon entering. I was also pleased to see signs about HUGE discounts to all the attractions if you stay at the Clarion. We didn't use them- but will next time. Our room was on the top floor, a king sized bed and Jacuzzi room- it was very clean and nice. I loved that the room had central air, not one of those loud machines by the window. Lots of TV channels, TONS of extra towels (about 7 or 8 in the room), quiet neighbors, and a relaxing balcony. Breakfast was the biggest I had ever seen at a hotel before, they literally had everything you could think of and it was all so yummy. My husband and I had a wonderful trip, and recommend it to everyone!
