“Amazing”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed October 28, 2012

Our family stopped on our way home from Disney,just wanting a little more vacation. What we received was the best service from a world class staff. The omelets were amazing! Thanks to Alberto. The best I've ever had!!!! The rooms are spacious with everything you can ever need. The bathroom was a plus,because of how its devided,with the toilet in its own space with a door, very nice. The beds will put you to sleep as soon as your head hits the pillow. The pool was was also very nice,indoors or out a lazy river and a slide built for speed.The outside was also complete with a fireplace,and a hot tub. In all this was one of best trips we've had,and because of this stay we will try to make it back yearly! The owner of should be proud of his staff for going over and above the call! Thank you very much Bruce, Seth, Matthew,and Scott! This place is amazing!

Your review was so appreciated by our staff and all that they do to make a customer's stay a great one! It's nice when people notice things like our full hot buffet breakfast and we have even added Something New since you have stayed. Just in the last few days we have added a juice and water machine in the breakfast area which has healthy, flavored water along with juices. There's always" SOMETHING NEW & SOMETHING DIFFERENT" at the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge. We always want your Home away from Home to be clean, neat, and have something for everyone. Thank You for taking the time to send us a review and we look forward to your next stay with us.

A special thank you to Scott Ellis and the wonderful staff! We had a great time. The place is very clean. The pools inside and out are fun and relaxing. The evenings in the hot tubs and around the fire ring were toasty and romantic. The food is great.The grand kids loved this place more than a local waterpark resort! The staff make you feel at home. Keep up the great work! We will see you guys in the spring! Mountain Dreaming in Florida!

We are glad that you and the grand kids had a great time! By the time some people leave, we are wondering who's the bigger kid...LOL !! There is always Something for everyone here at The Clarion Inn. The massage chairs, Ipads,heated pools, Big Breakfast, Spa,mini library, free snacks, free wyfi, refrigarators in the room, private business center, and work out room seem to have an effect on our guests. They do have a good time and realize the place they are staying at, is all about customer service which is why so many amenties and services all of which are free and part of your stay. We look forward to your next stay with us.

I would like to thank Bill and Scott Ellis for the kindness and true caring they showed us. I took my Girlfriend for her Birthday and called a head to see if we could get a early check in. Bill answered the phone and not only got us a early check in but had Sue a present waiting for her when we got to our room. When we checked in i ask for Bill and found out that Bill had just stopped in for a minute and grab a phone to help out. I also found out that Bill was going through Cancer Treatments. That had a special meaning to both me and Sue. You see we both had someone we loved very much and loss to Cancer. Any way Scott Ellis took care of us from there and Treated us like we were royalty. Scott not only got us a reservation at one of the best resturant in Gatlinburg but also helped me by setting up a carrage ride for us when we returned. I do believe this was a very good Birthday for Sue !! I know i had a lot of fun.
Thank you again Bill And Scott. James Bruns

A special "Thank You" to Scott Ellis and his staff for coming to the rescue of some especially stranded travellors! During a recent trip to the Smoky Mountain area, the four couples in my group actually rented a "luxury" condo from a local travel group. Imagine our dismay when, after repeated efforts which resulted in zero results from the rental company, we discovered the cable service to the condo had been cut due to a change in ownership. Naturally, we were not told of this until after we had paid and made repeated calls ourselves, even discoverng the lack of truthfulness on our own. Being college football fans and this weekend's slate of games being one of the major reasons we made the trip, we were, needless to say, a rather unhappy group!

Enter Scott Ellis and the great staff of the Clarion. On a last ditch effort to rescue some of our weekend, one of our group stopped by the hotel...remember, we were not guests...and inquired about a room to set up and watch the various games. Scott was more than accomodating. He allowed us to rent, for a nominal fee, the breakfast area and watch the games as a group all day. His staff bent over backward to ensure our comfort and pleasure. I cast enough plaudits in the direction of this team and highly recommend them, and the hotel, to any travelling through the Pigeon Forge area!

It was so nice to meet the wonderful fans from Alabama. As you know the Alabama band stays here in our city each time Tennessee plays them here. We enjoy having our guests from collegiate schools all over the country and enjoy their time pulling for their favorite teams. We want everyone to enjoy their stay here in the beautiful Smokey Mountains of East Tennessee. There is always so much to see and do when you are not going to a football game or watching one on T.V.. We are glad that you found a place to visit and would certainly stay with us next time you are in the area, as with us you can see what you get. By the way, we have cable and it will be on and awaiting your next visit (Lol) for that ever important game.Sometimes we as consumors forget to research where we are going and that's why it's important to check out trip advisor before making that next reservation. Look forward to ypur next visit in your new found, Home away from Home!

From the moment we arrived it was a great experience. We had two rooms. One for my husband and I, and the other for our 4 teenager girls. We asked to be at least on the same floor, and they put us right next door. After our teenagers locked their keys in their room, the front desk was extremely helpful. The pool area was fun and well kept. We also enjoyed the full hot breakfast. The rooms were clean and nice and the staff was wonderful. We will be back!!

Thank You so much for your review and the staff appreciates your kind words. It is always such a pleasure to host families like yourself who appreciates the services our staff provides and all the extra amenities the hotel has. Not very many hotels will provide everything free that is offered in their hotel plus have extra like a larger breakfast, free massage chairs, Ipads for kids and adults to use, free wyfi, free snacks, free business center and work out facilities, and extended hours on the pools with complimentary towells, and a small guests reading library. Just a few to name in a hotel that still beleives in Southern Hospitality. But here in the SMOKEY MOUNTAINS we welcome you that way at "The Most Fun Place to Stay in the SMOKIES !!!!!!!!
