Reviewed August 28, 2012

Check in was fast and easyWe stayed here for the last 4 years. Nice and clean. Friendly people work behind the front desk.Don't have to worry about anything missing from room. The people that clean the rooms are very friendly and do a good job. I leave note for extra coffee and it is there. Real close to the Trolley we ride the trolley all the time. Good breakfast but I like bananna muffins instead of blueberry but they have lots of other things to choose from. I think if I would have asked for different muffins he would have got them or at least tried I recommend this hotel to a lot of people coming to Pigeon Forge

Room Tip: Try to get a room with balcony

Stayed here two nights with spouse on visit to area. Convenient location at Stop Light #0 in Pigeon Forge. Check in was fast and efficient, clean bright lobby with computer+printer. "Time-share body snatcher' staking out the lobby sometimes, so be aware!

Took elevator up to 4th floor room. Two queen beds, balcony, facing river. Fridge and microwave. Clean room, one luggage rack. Table and 2 chairs. Old CRT TV, not flat screen. No complaints.

Bathroom clean except for layer of dirt/dust/grime atop shower enclosure. Amenities a little skimpy (soap and shampoo very thin), but towels good. Bathroom sink faucet leaked and staff didn't seem that interested in fixing.

Ice machine on 4th floor broken, so had to use 3rd floor. Nice pool area (a little small though) and no jacuzzi. Lots of parking.

Breakfast is the only area this property could really improve for a higher rating. We saw on the property's website a photo of bagels, coffee and OJ. At breakfast, no bagels. Just toast, toaster waffles, grits and oatmeal packages, with some mini muffins and OJ and coffee. If they'd add some fresh fruit, hard boiled eggs, or pastries, or the bagels they show on their website, it would be better. Of course make your own waffles would be best, but there's probably a deal they have with the breakfast joints in the area that they won't offer too much!

All in all we enjoyed our stay and it was fair for the price.

Room Tip: Balcony on the river is nice, see if you can get a fireplace or jacuzzi room

Me and my husband booked this room by chance through a time share program. The booking agent neglected to book a balcony room for a smoker in a non-smoking hotel. The agent wouldn't help but the manager took care of us, switching things around so that we didn't have to change rooms everyday for 4 days. The room was clean, and the staff very helpful. We did not eat breakfast but enjoyed the fresh orange juice each day. It was worth the money we paid. I would stay there again with no second thoughts.

The breakfast lacked variety. The hotel we stayed in prior to this had free continental breakfast that included everything except bacon & eggs. So to come to this place and have 2 varieties of cereal and toaster waffles was quite disappointing.
The pool needed to be refinished & was definitely uninviting. It seemed murky most times we passed by it.
The room needed work. The drawers on the dresser were off track. Not that I ever use the drawers in a hotel, but it was noticeable. Also, the bathroom needed a more thorough cleaning. In addition there were odd noises coming from the pipes in the walls.

My family booked two nights at this motel and found that the room and the price were worth it but the service was awful. The lady at the desk was completely unprofessional and really prompted me to write this review. She was rude, unprofessional, and told us to leave if we were not happy. She lied about the manager not being there and ended up lying about one of our possessions we had left behind. Would not go back.

Overall this hotel was adequate, although the breakfast was a bit paltry, however our biggest complaint was that we were misled about the pool. We had specifically chosen this hotel over another place because when we called to check on vacancies the desk clerk told us it had a heated pool. When we arrived and took the kids to swim, we discovered that the pool was in no way heated and was in fact freezing. It is also quite small. This was April, so although the weather had been warm that day, it wasn't really warm enough for swimming in an unheated pool, especially at twilight. When we complained that we had been misled, we were told to speak to the manager in the morning. The clerk indicated that the manager would make it up to us. Eventually, the manager offered a discount on our next stay, which won't be much use because we don't intend to stay there again. The next night, we stayed at the Shular Inn for a few dollars more. They have a heated indoor pool and an outdoor pool.

My husband and I stayed here for our one year anniversary. We found the staff to be helpful and friendly. The honeymoon suite was nice and clean. The jacuzzi was great, super hot water was a plus. The hotel needs some minor cosmetic fixes, but nothing major that we saw. Over we have recommended this hotel to family and friends. We didn't care for the breakfast, so we ate at the Apple barn, which is wonderful. We have already decided to eat there again our next trip.

Room Tip: Honeymoon suite.
