This is not a luxury hotel, but price is great! Rooms/beds are clean and adequate. Location is right off the interstate. Breakfast is adequate, staff is very friendly. So glad that this hotel is affordable for families. We didn't mind staying out a little further and avoid the high prices in the Pigeon Forge/Dollywood area. Will definitely stay here again!

This motel was previously reviewed by me with horrible grades. My main complaints focused on the lack of cleanliness, service and "sweet bouquet" all-in-one soap and shampoo. I also was critical of the breakfast. This time matters were significantly better. The front desk staff was immediately helpful. The corridors and rooms were spectacularly clean. Although the "sweet bouquet" remained, the... More

A good choice. Right off the highway but quiet inside. The room is nice and there are restaurants nearby. Perfect for families visiting Carson-Newman University. Breakfast was not bad either. There is a Shoney's down the hill from the restaurant and also a WEndy's restaurant or maybe it was a Hardy's.

Everything else was booked, so we stayed here. It was clean, quiet and safe. So all was good. It was not an amazing place like some of the others, but you get what you pay for. People were nice. Bed was comfortable enough for a hotel.

Make your reservations on the hotel website for $39 during the week, $58 on Priceline! They jack the price to $100 on weekend. They accept pets for another $10/ni Second person, if you claim them, is another $5/night. If you're a sensible cheapskate, this place is perfectly adequate and clean.

Overall, Jefferson Inn was a great place to stay. Plenty of things to do within a short driving distance (Douglas Lake, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg), several restaurants, convenience store and grocery store close by. Everything in the room was in working order (air conditioning, television, refrigerator, microwave, etc.) and the wifi connection was decent. Our only complaint was the mattress was... More

We wanted to visit Pigeon Forge for Labor Day weekend and all hotels in immediate area were either already booked or very overpriced! Decided to go back an exit and found the Jefferson Inn. We travel with our pet and she was allowed to stay as well. Room and bathroom was clean and odor free. Would recommend this place to... More

I loved the motel, clean modern, nice staff. But another person staying was so worried about my service dog being left in our room they left a nasty note on our door. It was way to hot for him to be out with me. We kept checking on him at the motel. The maid said he was barking whenever she... More

I am convinced that staying at this hotel was the best bang for our buck in the Dandridge area! As other reviewers say, this is a no-frills hotel: the decor is minimal and the rooms are modest. My husband and I were looking for a simple place to get a peaceful night's sleep in a clean and comfy bed, and... More
