Reviewed September 8, 2013

was the most reasonable price wise we could find. Checked in and had an odor of bug spray, front desk was helpful in supplying air freshener. i was told they'd let housekeeping know. Odor did get better. My sister in laws room was great nothing wrong with it. Had waffle and oatmeal for a hot breakfast, cereal and bagels and muffins. Not the best breakfast but at 28.00 per night, what do you expect?

Found this hotel by accident. Though out of our way and right in the middle of Pigeon Forge, the hotel was extremely reasonable and very clean. They even had a pool. I asked why so cheap and was told on weekends it is more expensive. We paid a hole-in-the-wall price for a 50-60 dollar hotel.

I stayed here for 3 nights and had NO WI FI...... every time i talked to the hotel staff it was a different story on why i had no wifi my room was right above the office so i should have had great wifi........ the room was nice but in order to get some work done on my vacation i had to use my phone or go to mcdonalds when i paid for FREE wifi in my room........ its a lot easier to work in a relaxing hotel room.... i will NEVER stay there again

This is a review for the Days Inn that is actually located in Pigeon Forge. I can tell by many of the other positive reviews and descriptions that these other travelers were most likely at Sevierville or Gatlinburg Days Inn(both are very near by). The room smelled like it used to be a smoking room, the tub was clogged and did not drain well, the sheets and towels all had stains on them, the walls and ceilings had mold and missing sheetrock chunks I had to kill a roach in room on 2nd night and the room had an overall filmy feel.
We didn't even go to the pool. It is small and situated in the middle of the all concrete parking lot facing the main road.
We went to the Free Breakfast once. It was all processed foods, cheap cereal and breads.

The employees were nice enough and offered for us to switch rooms but the other rooms were just as dingy. This hotel needs a serious overhaul.

Room Tip: The hotels in this area are cheap enough that unless you are going during a high season you can wait...
