We stayed at the Clarion on our recent family vacation in Pigeon Forge. There is not a single negative thing I could say about the hotel. From check-in with the super friendly staff in the clean and well-appointed lobby, to the comfortable beds and quiet rooms our stay was very nice. I've stayed a few other hotels in Pigeon Forge and it is difficult find quality rooms and good customer service. It is also an incredible value for all of the amenities that come along with your stay. We used the concierge service and in-house discounts to book and see several area attractions without a hiccup and at a very nice bargain. The outdoor waterslide and lazy river are small, but clean and warm and perfectly adequate. My children loved playing out there even in the rain.The indoor pool and hot tub were also very nice and clean. Breakfast was plentiful and quite good- particularly for being included free-of-charge. I have paid upwards of $15 for hotel buffets at some Hiltons/Wyndhams and the like for about the same variety. There were plenty of items to suit most tastes from light fruit and yogurt fare to hot omelet station and fresh waffle maker. Of course, if you had a taste for something other than the complimentary spread, there are several breakfast places nearby. The rooms were large, bathrooms clean, and beds were very comfortable. We didn't hear any noise or doors slamming coming from inside the hotel despite the hotel being fully booked. The ONLY noise we heard was a band playing and some motorcycles revving engines at the nearby Harley dealership and some type of bar right across the parking lot- that is clearly not the fault of the hotel and it didn't go on too late into the night. I am a terribly light sleeper and usually have a hard time sleeping when travelling- I'm delighted that it wasn't the case here. We took advantage of the small but well equipped fitness room ( there were treadmills, elliptical trainers, and a weight bench). We also enjoyed the complimentary massage chairs. I can't imagine you would find a much better hotel in this area. We will never stay anywhere else in Pigeon Forge if they continue to offer this level of service, comfort, and value. I wholeheartedly recommend this place!
