My husband and I took a weekend trip to Pigeon Forge and reserved a room through Priceline. When we arrived, there was nowhere to park and risked being towed. We had problems getting the key cards to work, and once we were able to get the door unlocked, we walked into a huge cobweb. Upon entering the room, it had a musty smell, the carpet was dirty, and part of the bed linens were folded up in the bathroom area. The refrigerator was broken, there was pubic hair stuck to the shower stall, and we were given complimentary coffee packets, but the coffee maker that was supposed to be in the room was nowhere to be found. The night shift desk clerk was unfriendly, and after complaining the next morning, we were moved into another room which was just the same with the exception of the refrigerator working. My advice is to look past this motel when looking for a place to stay!

Room Tip: Do not get a room here!

I have stayed at this motel before and I would definitely stay again! I have paid a lot more money for considerably lesser rooms during my traveling. The room I stayed in had nice linens on the beds and was reasonable. The air conditioning worked a little too well. The bathroom was clean and well stocked. Vending for beverages wasn't stock well so the selections were limited. The pool was a little small and there isn't any hot tub or kiddie pool. The check in staff are very friendly and helpful. They had a car show in front of the motel which was nice too!

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.
