“Pet Friendly in Pigeon Forge”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 27, 2011

My sister and her husband, along with my parents, have stayed here at least 3-5 times and plan to stay again mainly because it is a pet friendly hotel that doesn't cost an arm and a leg, and is close to the outlet malls. Even though it is in a busy traffic spot, they have always had peace and quiet in their rooms. They have had no complaints either before or after the remodel with cleanliness or any other issues (They can be picky, too!), so I am sorry to see so many negative reviews. I just got back from a trip through Pigeon Forge and noticed it is now called Timbers Lodge.

I never felt so comfortable in a motel/hotel before. The accommodations were extremely relaxing and I found everyone there to be very friendly and on the mark. We had a room ready even earlier than expected. The room was very clean and looked fairly new. We are definitely going back to Pigeon Forge and Timbers Log. Location to everything made it even better.

Room Tip: All the rooms we looked at before we got our room looked great. I think the most comfortable ones a...

I never write reviews but because of all of the bad reviews I have read I wanted to share my experience. We loved this hotel. I was nervous based on the bad reviews but we needed a dog friendly place so we gave it a try. The first room we were given the TV did not work but the front desk was very accommodating and upgraded us to a 2 level suite with a hot tub and 2 full baths! The rooms were very clean and spacious. I especially liked the hardwood floors since it is a pet friendly room. The beds were comfortable with nice down comforters. The inside reminded you of a real log cabin. The towels were clean and bright white (this is always a worry of mine ). The only cons are the first room we were given the bathroom floor didnt look like it had been swept and the outside over head there were spiders, but never found one spider or bug in the room :) Our room faced the river so I know the spiders are just part of nature.

Overall I was very pleased with our stay. It's not a 5 star hotel but very good for the money. I agree with an earlier review "don't be picky". I will def return!

We recently stayed 1 night at the Timbers Log. We arrived and were checked in quickly. The staff were friendly. We had our little chihuahua with us and it was nice that they allowed him to stay. The room looked like it was recently updated. It was clean with what appeared to be new beds and a nice flat screen tv. I would definately stay again.

We traveled to Pigeon Forge over 4th of July weekend. We booked Timbers Log for the location (proximity to Dollywood and shopping), room layout, and the fact that it was pet friendly. We were not disappointed. We had a quick and friendly check-in. Our room was a loft. Downstairs was a small kitchen area with fridge and microwave. We had a small dining room table and couch together. On the other side was a queen size bed and bathroom. There is no privacy in the downstairs bedroom, as it is open to the living room/kitchen. That wasn't a problem for us. Upstairs was two queen beds and a bathroom. You can tell that the rooms are older and maybe not super clean, but we aren't picky. There was also a TV in both bedrooms. There were other pets in the hotel, but it wasn't loud at night. We also had a friendly and easy check-out. The only thing we were disappointed with was the wi-fi. It was free, but there was not a good connection. We were facing the office and still couldn't pick up good signal. Overall a good stay for a family trip.

We booked our reservations as part of package and chose this location based on the beautifully advertised rooms. We were sadly disappointed. The room was not clean (bathroom floor had not been swept or mopped). The room was poorly lit and the main mounted lamp's cord would not reach the nearest outlet (of which were scarce). Killed a large spider in the middle of the night. The jacuzzi was small and did not hold water. The handtowel on the counter was dingy and the towels were very small. There were absolutely no hooks or racks in the bathroom (toilet and shower) or outside the bathroom (sink area). Even though we stayed in a nonsmoking room there were cigarette burns on the comforter.

We really hate to hear that your stay was less than satisfactory. We wish we would have known the problems while you were here, instead of after the fact. We're sorry that the towels were dingy. The dim lightning sure doesn't help, but we feel the darker type room goes with the log cabin theme. If there is anything we can do to earn a second chance, please contact us directly at the hotel.

We just returned from staying at the Timbers Log Motel. We were very happy with our stay there. Everyone at the front desk was very friendly and helpful. Our beds were very comfortable. We liked having the refrigerator and microwave in the room. Our room was very soundproof. We didn't hear any outside noise. We loved the waffle maker with the continental breakfast! The motel was centrally located in Pigeon Forge and had a traffic light intersection to help us get out onto the main road.

We are glad you enjoyed your stay with us. It's also great to hear good feedback on the wafflemaker. We didn't know if it would be a good thing or not, but it's a hit. The kids really love it. Also, it's good to hear that the new beds we bought are being enjoyed. If you are ever planning on coming back to the area, give us a call. We'd be thrilled to have you come back and stay with us again.
