Price is very low. Fluctuates based on Seasons and what is going on in the area. Clean room. Not fancy. Older facility but it suited our needs. Nice pool.You can sit on a bench behind the Inn and enjoy the River. On the strip so easy access Romany places. I would come back.

We found Maples by accident or a God send I might say. We were desperate and we began to ride the parkway and we saw maples, drove in and Joe in the office was so nice and immediately assigned us a room on second level like we requested. The room was beautiful, very clean NO complaints and we have stayed in lots of the "up to do" expensive hotels in Pigeon Forge but this one way surpasses all of them Loved the nice maintained pool and loved the seats at each room so we could sit on the porch and relax and wow the area down by the river was so neat but rain kept us from getting to enjoy tot he fullest. To sum it up if you are looking please check Maples out you will be so happy and surprised and oh also they have a quite time after I think 10 or 11 and it is so quite and peaceful no loud people or rowdy people you can rest and sleep with ease. Again, if you are looking please give Maples a try and i can promise like us it will be come your motel of choice every visit to the great Smokey Mountains and Pigeon Forge, it is so convenient to every thing!

Another great stay during a mini vacation at my favorite place. If you’re looking for a place to stay that’s located in walking distance of shops, don’t let the low rates scare you away & book yourself a room.. you won’t regret it! Rooms are super clean & spacious, beds & pillows a very comfortable, the hanging flower baskets throughout the premises are absolutely gorgeous. A special thank you to Ann at the front desk for taking care of us during our stay & for always making me & my family feel at home. She’s honestly the sweetest person I’ve ever met & has a smile that will brighten anyone’s day. Until next time, may God bless you all & keep you safe!

thanks keisha! 2 thoughts on our "scary low rates:" 1) the new chain hotels may have indoor pools, "free" breakfast, and modern furnishings, but despite their price being 3x or 4x ours, they are no cleaner or friendlier. 2) many of our competitors, new and old, have absolutely gouged their customers this year as visitation to the smokies has skyrocketed. even though our prices increased the normal 3-6% this year we are suddenly suspicious! next year's rates will be published on our website come march 2022, and you are guaranteed that price! visit maplesmotorinn.com for the best news of your vacation!

Our favorite place to stay in Pigeon Forge. ALWAYS clean!! Friendly staff. Homey rooms, with comfy beds and pillows. My husband wanted to take his pillow home! 😆 Love all the beautiful wave petunias they have hanging around. Wish mine at home looked as good! Will definitely stay here again in the future.
