The bathroom door lock was broken and there was barely enough water to shower. One of the beds was tilted downward, slightly broken. The pillows were terrible. The bedspreads were very heavy. When speaking to the front desk they were somewhat abrupt and not very friendly. The breakfast was very poor there were very little choices and she they ran out they did not replenish. I will never stay at this motel.

While driving to smoky mountains we stopped at Pigeon Forge. There are lots of options at Pigeon Forge. Days inn was in the centre of town. We could walk to a supermarket and there were lots of dining options within walking distance. It was safe to walk as there were sidewalks. Our room was huge with a separate lounge room. The rooms were very clean if a bit worn around the edges but the huge size of both the bedroom and the lounge room made up for it. The staff at reception were very helpful. Breakfast was provided and the dining area was clean.

We didn't care for this hotel. I know you get what you pay for but it was bad. The deadbolt didn't work right. The slide chain was missing from the door. The coffee pot leaked and didn't work half the time. Nit is in a great location but the rooms are outdated. Wouldn't recommend this hotel.
