There's always Something new at the Clarion and we will have a new juice machine coming soon that will also carry flavored waters. Just this past month we added the Health Spa on the 3rd floor and we have other ideas in the planning stages. Our goal is that when you return to your Home away from Home on your next visit, it will always look new and have something different that has been added. We are always planning ahead for your next visit and we look forward to seeing you then.

My wife and I stayed at this hotel in February and were impressed by the quality of the hotel. We took my wife's Dad along for the trip this time and again the hotel was outstanding. The rooms were clean, beds comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. The staff goes way above and beyond to make sure the stay is perfect. I could not imagine staying anywhere else. We did find the massaging chairs this time and believe me they are amazing. In addition to the great breakfast this hotel also provides fresh baked cookies, lemonade, and fresh popped popcorn at 7:00-8:00. Hint: take the ceramic coffee mugs in the room down to breakfast each morning. It will make the coffee even better.

We always said if we get A- or better, than we would have a great day in the Hospitality Industry. Having and knowing we are receiving A+++ from our guests such as you makes our days all worth while. Guests who appreciate all our services and amenities understands what kind of overall value you get in staying here at the Clarion.....,Many people have said by the time they added up the savings on tickets, breakfast, and all the information we had for them they actually spent less and stayed in something much better. Sometimes it's hard educating the general public that room rate is not what you want to look at when looking for a place to stay. That's why we appreciate customers like yourself who know what they are looking for and what to look for. Thanks again for staying with us and we look forward to your next stay.

We looked at Trip Advisor and saw this hotel was rated #1 . They are rated by Aaa with three diamonds. Both ratings are well deserved by their stAff. We originally had a room on a lower floor and I explained I was a light Sleeper. They immediately upgraded us to a wonderful room on the top floor with a mountain view, fireplace, and jacuzzi at no extra charge. The breakfast is included with your stay and includes fresh omlettes. The rooms are spacious and modern with all the extras. The staff has a welcome hour in the evenings. Wonderful stay!

I think my four year old granddaughter summed it up best when we went out and she would cry "I want to go to my Hotel Home". The management was genuinely concerned that you enjoyed your stay and took personal responsibility to make sure everything was up to their standard expectation of excellence. I have recommended the hotel to friends and have enjoyed a week vacation stay in August and again in September for a car show. The hotel is a little out of the way to be in the midst of the car show but willing to make the sacrifice to keep this as our home away from home.

Room Tip: Request 441 front room and close to elevator.

Thank You for your review and we so look forward to your next stay. We hope you get the chance to see what is New and Different at the Clarion. The Spa can pamper anyone wanting to be spoiled above what the complimentary massage chairs do for you in our massage chair room. As you know our breakfast always surprises people and is one of our more popular places in the hotel. Our location is very surprising as well, as we are right here at Waldens Landing which allows you to walk right in to the Landing where there are 16 retail shops 5 restaurants, a 5 plex movie theater, an attraction called the tomb, and two 18 hole putt putt golf courses. Just look up Waldens Landing on the web..,. See you on your next stay here at the Clarion Inn at Waldens Landing.

Our experience as a business meeting location has been second to none. We have used this location twice in the last two years and have found consistent ,excellent service from the management and staff. Location in the middle of Pidgeon Forge allows you to be at any destination within a few minutes. We look forward to next year.
