“Basic room but clean, comfortable, and affordable.”
Reviewed February 25, 2013

For $43.00 including tax this is a basic room that fills basic needs. Everything was clean, bathrooms were basic but new and functional, good shower water pressure, and the beds were just fine. "Breakfast" was cheap cereal and store danish; Shoneys is right across the street if you want genuine food.
Don't expect Hampton Inn amenities or breakfast but for sleeping, bathing, and getting back on the road it's perfect.

I was very pleased that I was allowed to change my reservation by one day without penalty. Also the check in was the fasteast I have ever had. The staff ws very nice. The price was very reasonable compared to close by hotels. The bed was very comfortable and the shower had plenty of presure The only downside was the breakfast. It was very sparce and ony had a muffin or a waffle to choose from so we went to a local restaurant instead, but all in all a good value and very clean. I would use this hotel again for sure.

Was very pleased & surprised at the value--rooms were inexpensive, very nice, very clean, with microwave & refrigerator! Was also happy to get a smoking room, since I am a smoker. When in Dandridge, I'd definitely stay there again!

My husband unexpectedly found out that he could be off on Friday and we wanted to use our Dollywood passes before the season's end. I called the Jefferson Inn and got a better rate than what was advertised online.

We live in Georgia and it is a very easy Interstate drive to the Inn. We arrived about 4 pm, checked in and walked across the street to the Shoney's for dinner. From our room we could still see the mountains in the distance...a must for this part of the country!

Our room was very clean and much larger than we expected. I prefer the inside access to our room that this Inn has also. The last morning of our visit, we asked for an iron and had it in minutes.

The Inn has two floors but no elevator so make sure that you are able to go up and down stairs. We had breakfast the two mornings that we were there and found that it had plenty to offer.

The staff is extremely friendly, the Inn is very convenient to Pigeon Forge (less than a 20 minute Interstate drive) and the room was a pleasant surprise.

We will definitely consider the Jefferson Inn on our next trip.

Dandridge is a great location if you're visiting Dollywood, Gatlinburg or traveling to Nashville. The Jefferson Inn is OK--bed was comfortable, room was clean, shower was great, AND they had Public TV. Plus, there's a Shoney's within walking distance.

However, they had no morning newspaper & according to my husband, the breakfast left a lot to be desired.

The staff is not the friendliest, either.

The rooms were very clean and the staff was very nice. We were able to check in quickly and everything in the room was great. There is a refrigerator/freezer that we used. The staff was very good with our dog too and even played with her some. I would definitely stay here again and probably will next time I drive down that direction. Loved it!
