Our usual hotel we've stayed at before in Pigeon Forge didn't have any rooms available, so we thought we'd try this Days Inn. The place didn't look too bad upon checking in on the afternoon of Tuesday, April 3rd. We asked the clerk for a room on the top floor in a quiet area, away from the highway. Our room looked fine, except for the table and chairs were missing. We had to wait for them to send someone up who moved the set from the next room into ours, with my husband's help. That evening we went to one of the many great country shows in town and returned to our room at 11:00 p.m., ready for a good night's sleep, which wasn't to happen. At 4:40 a.m. we were awakened to what sounded like construction equipment right outside our room. It was so bad I got up and looked out the window to see a garbage truck emptying dumpsters! Up to that point, we were thinking of staying another night, but this event quickly changed our minds. We were disgusted and my husband complained to the front desk, who said they were sorry that happened but offered nothing. We travel several times a year, and this is the first time we've ever experienced this. We belong to several hotel reward programs, and on the rare occasion we've had an issue, we were offered extra points or a discount on our bill for inconveniences, but not here. Also, the breakfast was horrid - worst coffee of our three-week vacation, and nothing there was fit to eat. There's many hotels to choose from in Pigeon Forge and we'll try another one next time, that's for sure.
