I travel frequently, so when my sister recommended we stay here I was a little concerned. Really the Econo lodge? But there were so many pluses I was pleasantly surprised. The location is right in the middle of Pigeon Forge next to the Christmas place shop. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. There is a small mini fridge that actually works and a microwave. First, if you want a pool side room, there are only about 7 rooms on the bottom floor. The second floor is the lobby floor. I thought from the website pictures there were balcony's overlooking the pool. There aren't. So don't bother with a pool side room unless you enjoy hearing screaming kids from 9am to 11pm. Also, I wandered around for 5 minutes looking for the ice machines. Some signs directing you there would be nice. We had an issue with our air conditioner. Maintenance showed up within 5 minutes and fixed the problem. The breakfast was fine and more than we expected for a continental breakfast. I would have liked some healthier options like yogurt or fresh fruit, but this is the south. They had biscuits and gravy, waffles and eggs. The dining area is small so we ate in our room. Overall, I would stay here again. Book online and sign up for their rewards program to get an extra discount.
