This was our second and last stay here. We arrived on Saturday Nov 19th for six nights. There was lots of kids there with there parents. Neither the hotel or the parents tried to keep the kids under control. They ran the halls screaming, slamming doors, etc. This went on the first night. It stopped around 11pm. The kids were... More

When we walked into the hotel, the front lobby was not bad, very welcoming, but then you get on the elevator, and it goes down from there. The hotel is old and needs updating, but if full of lady and stink bugs. Our room was infested with them, So we had to deal with the bugs, mold and no power... More

The front desk staff is great and very helpful. They were the only exceptional part of our visit. We walked to our room down a hallway so overloaded with the smell of cleaners it would make you gag. We went to our room which although the sheets were clean, the carpet had stains, the wallpaper was peeling, and we counted... More

We booked a room on a Friday in October, so we expected to pay a little more. The room was a total of $240.83 and we were charged a "Hotel Services Fee" of $15.00. The hotel was situated at the end of the main Gatlinburg drag so it was very convenient. Parking isn't very available so that was a big... More

I stayed at the Clarion for 5 nights while attending a trade convention. At best this is a 2.5 star hotel - nothing more. I like to work out while traveling and while they list a 'fitness' facility on their website, I was told at the front desk that the owner ordered replacement parts for the treadmill 5 years ago....

I've stayed here about 4 times over the last three years with family. I like its location right next to the park entrance but also on the main drag. The staff is good. The breakfast staff for the complementary breakfast is particularly good. But the rooms and the interior of the hotel in general needs to be renovated. It's seems... More

Would stay here again, but recently checked the rates for a return trip to the area, and the rates are higher than similar hotels. Great location right on the parkway. Easy access to room elevators from parking lot. Was not able to enjoy the complimentary breakfast.

Hotel is in a good location and is typical of a resort hotel. The rooms could use a little updating and the carpet is a little rough looking in areas.
