This was a last minute booking so the price was great--- It is located at red light #10-- perfect for walking to everything, or catching the free trolley that runs until 11 pm . There are at least 10 great restaurants within 3 blocks and most of the Gatlinburg attractions, and 5 miles or less to several Great Smokey Mountain... More

Located practically at the end of the main Parkway drag, this hotel is still within walking distance of plenty activities on the strip. Right across the street is the tram for Ober Gatlinburg. Hopefully the experience we had during check in isn't a constant issue for people. Unfortunately during the check in process, being it was booked over the phone,... More

The hotel smelled bad and had automatic air freshners that made it worse. Our room was dirty, old and smelled. We were very dissatisfied. My son's socks were black from walking on the room floor. I would not recommend this to anyone. It seemed to have good reviews but very dissatisfied.

It's right on the Gatlinburg strip, which makes this a very convenient location, but there's a lot that needs to be fixed at this hotel. The lobby is fine and staff are nice, but be sure to have your room key on you for breakfast and be near your kids if they don't have one. They are very insistent that... More

We just went on a last minute trip to Gatlinburg. We stayed at the Clarion and were greeted very warmly and had no problems at all with our room. Who cares what color the in room jacuzzi is? Seriously? It was mauve but I relaxed in it just as I would in a different color! The breakfast was fine. We... More

This hotel is located on the strip in downtown Gatlinburg! Walking distance to almost everything! Pool is indoor/outdoor with a sliding glass roof, which was very nice! Free Breakfast was a nice touch! The staff was super friendly. Omelet Man was sooo friendly and his kindness to others was exceptional! I would definitely stay again!

Read a review on this hotel. It said to get a top floor, king suite. I did. The room, although clean, needed updating, real bad. There is a bath tub or maybe a hot tub in the bedroom it's mauve. Everything is old. The AARP rate included some kind of taxes and it came to $178/night. I expect a lot... More

First, you pay an additional resort fee, which is absurd for this budget type motel. Wifi is awful, and the exercise room was a joke with old equipment and treadmill that did not work. Save your money and stay somewhere else for 100 dollars less a night and receive the same budget service.
