My husband and my three children stayed here for five nights and loved every bit of it! Beds were comfortable...the breakfast was pretty good...the only complaint I have is that the pool was not heated like I thought it was going to be. My kids were disappointed in that, but overall this is a great place to stay and we will be staying again. We come to Pigeon Forge every year.

Room Tip: Definitely get a room with a balcony...very relaxing! :-)

We came here because of the great price ($29.95 plus tax), but ended up being very impressed. The man at reception (Troy) was super friendly, which got our stay off to a great start. We stayed in an upstairs room, but the hotel has an elevator and luggage trolley, which made it easy to haul our gear up there.

The room was very comfortable, with two beds, a fridge, microwave and wifi that actually worked in the room. If only all the other hotels we stayed at had these features. Breakfast in the morning was reasonable; it included waffles, but they were cooked in the kitchen and brought in, so weren't very warm. We stayed past the allotted finish time without feeling pressured to move on though, which was nice.

There's a communal computer and printer in the lobby, but I couldn't get it to print. There's lots of food in the area, and there are factory outlets not too far up the road to the north. We had considered staying in Gatlinburg, but parking looked to be a nightmare there, so we came up here and were very happy with our decision. I'd definitely stay at the Pigeon River Inn again if I had the chance.

The location of the hotel was great , near tanger mall, walmart in 0.5 miles and all attractions . Lot of fast food restauants nearby . Hotel provides free breakfast (Continental).

Rooms are clean and neat. Internet and wifii was working great. .

Room Tip: Stay in lower floors as there is one lift and it is very slow.

My husband and I got married at the Cupid's Chapel of Love on Monday March 19th and then we had our honeymoon at the Pigeon River Inn. It was all so wonderful! We stayed in a honeymoon suite that had a fireplace and jacuzzi. We stayed two nights for under $200! It was a great value but nice too. I would like to thank the staff for the part that they had in making my honeymoon so nice. I have stayed here every time that I have been to the Smokey Mountains and I would always recommend this hotel to anyone.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a balcony.

For the price you can't really go wrong on this one. The room was clean, bathroom was big. Room included a sofa. The wifi was good.
Although it needed some renovation, it was OK. Breakfast provided was largely cereal, so we didn't use it.

Although the room was fully updated, it was very clean. I got the room for very cheap and it was definitely worth more than I paid for. The pool was closed, but other than that ibwas very satisfied. The location of the hotel is very close to all the attractions, made driving easy!
