My husband and I are repeat guest we love the hotel it is close to everything, the manager's and staff really make you feel welcome. We love that they have a hot breakfast in the mornings and in the afternoons they even have cookies and popcorn. We have have stayed many places between pigeon forge and gatlinburg and there isn't anything that compares to this place. We come to the mountains 2 to 3 times a year and this is the place for us.

Room Tip: We had a king room with balcony and we loved it.

This is the second time my organiztation has used Clarion Inn-Pigeon Forger as a meeting place. The hotel management and staff delivered an exceptional value and terrific service. Not only did they provide everything we needed for our meeting, but went out of their way to set up great experiences for us during our downtime. We love this hotel!!!

The Clarion Inn is just fantastic! Immaculate, so helpful with show info and discounts, terrific breakfast with even made-to-order omelets! The manager and staff are really good people, always ready to help with any question! We stayed there Sept 19th and 20th, 2012, and the mid-week rates were exceptional! There is every amenity one can think of - even massage chairs in one of the community rooms! Perfect location just off the main road in the center of Pigeon Forge. Don't even hesitate for a moment to stay at this great place!

Well, this is my sixth or seventh time staying at the Clarion, and it gets better and better each time I go there. Don't let the size of the waterpark fool you, though. I'm 40 years old, and had a blast spending the afternoon riding the waterslide and floating on the lazy river. The bluegrass band that played on Friday night was great.

One thing I must confess, though. For a long time, I always views the Inn at Christmas Place as the best hotel, hands down. On this trip, I spent a few nights at the Clarion, and a couple nights at the Inn at Christmas place. You know what? The Clarion is, indeed, the best hotel in Pigeon Forge. The Clarion is elegant and classy, but not in a "stuffy" kind of way that the Inn at Christmas Place is. The entertainment, waterpark, room size and the breakfast was far superior at the Clarion than at the Inn at Christmas Place.

Scott has done a great job maintaining the level of service at the Clarion that Tim Tallent started. I plan on returning next week to the Clarion, and an so excited. See ya soon!

This hotel was awesome!! My husband, myself, and our three children stayed here for our vacation. Our children did not even want to leave the hotel. They called it their "home" while we were there. This was our first time staying here because we usually rent a cabin. Hotel was very clean and the staff were very friendly and helpful. The kids loved the water slide with the sprinkler and lazy river along with the hot tubs, inside and out. There was a very nice sitting area with a fire pit. My husband and I worked out in the fitness room and the equipment even had TV so I didn't miss any of my favorite shows. The massage chairs were very nice and comfortable. At night time, they even had a meet & greet with lemonade, cookies, and popcorn. Also, let me say that the breakfast was awesome. The food was very tasty and had almost anything you could ask for. You could make your own waffle or have them make you a fresh omelet for you.

I booked my trip online through a travel site, so checkin and checkout were very simple and had no problems. The price was the same as I had booked. That was nice!!! We stayed here for three nights and four days and we will definitely book our next trip here also!!! I highly recommend this hotel!!! You will not be disappointed!!!

I have lost track of how many times we have stayed at the Clarion. We are always so pleased with the service. Staff truly makes you feel welcome. Housekeeping does an outstanding job. I have yet to be disappointed in the cleanliness of the rooms. Keep up the good work Clarion! We will definitely be back.

One suggestion though... Would like to see Oatmeal at breakfast the way some chains are doing.

For an AWESOME trip to Pigeon Forge, I highly recommend staying at the Clarion Inn...it has everything for an excellent trip for all of the family. The accommodations are extremely comfortable, clean, and spacious. The site has indoor/outdoor pools which includes a slide for the kids, hot tubs, and a lazy river. The breakfast provided is second to none. This hotel is more like a resort at the foothills of the Smokies. The site includes exercise equipment, complementary massage chairs. If you desire a deep tissue massage, hot stone treatment, or facial, there is even an on-site Health and Beauty Spa.

All of this makes for a great stay, but the best part is the staff! They are very courteous and helpful to make sure you can get the most out of your trip whether you want to hit the local attractions or simply relax and enjoy your stay. All of which is at a very reasonable rate.

There are no negatives, so if you're headed to Pigeon Forge, be sure to stay here!

Michael, You covered everything our hotel likes to let people know about and we can only say that we are located in the heart of Pigeon Forge with easy access to everything because of where we are situated here at Waldens Landing 1 block off the main Parkway but at the intersection of Hwy 321 and 441. This allows everyone to go to cades cove, or dollywood/splash country or even many of the shows without having to get out on the main parkway getting into traffic. We look forward to your next stay and all those who would like the services and stay you spoke of. Thanks again for staying with us.
