My husband and I had the opportunity to get away and this Clarion was a great experience. The room was immaculate, very clean, and cozy. The extra touches of hot tub and fireplace made it even more special! The staff was very friendly and catered to our every need. Breakfast was wonderfulland sure to please everyone with the variety of options available. Even though our children were not with us on this trip, the indoor/outdoor pool facilities were awesome. Looking forward to my next trip to Clarion in beautiful Pigeon Forge.

Room Tip: Our room was on the fifth floor and we had a great mountain view from our balcony.

The staff is fast and professional, very kid friendly. The guy on 3rd shift gave my son a small black bear stuffed animal, I thought that was a nice touch, and my son just loved it. It slept with it.
The room was very clean, and bed very comfortable. The breakfast is also good with lots of choices. My family enjoyed the indoor and outdoor pool. My son like the water slide as i enjoyed the lazy river. This is my second stay and will make this my go to hotel while in PF.

Room Tip: If you are a smoker ask for the room on the first floor to make it easy to go out side door to smoke...

My husband and I had the opportunity to get away and we decided to go back to the Clarion that we had stayed at 2 years ago. Even after 2 years this facility STILL maintained its new appearance and the staff was beyond exceptional. The breakfast offered to guests was outstanding. You can even make your own waffles. The level of cleanliness (which is something that I really look out for) had not gone down at all. The front desk personel recommended a few musical shows to see and we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves. You have a wonderful relaxing place to stay, many restruants to choice from, shopping and entertainment all within your reach. I would definitely recommend the Claion at Pigeon Forge to anyone who is looking for a Home away from Home.

Room Tip: rooms are spacious and no detail was left undone

Thank You for chosing us as your Home away from Home. We are close enough for South Carolina folks to slip over the hill for short getaways anytime of the year. We enjoyed having you back with us and hope you make it over to see all the Christmas lights in the city and at Dollywood. They are so beautiful this time of year. We will always have" SOMETHING NEW and SOMETHING DIFFERENT" here at the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge.....All the staff says hello and Happy Holidays as we look forward to your next stay. :)

We have stayed at this Clarion several times & this visit was just as wonderful as the others. The staff goes over & above to ensure your comfort. This Clarion is very well maintained & extremely clean. Also, within walking distance of several restaurants. From what I have seen, groups stay here & the staff handles it all very well. They make you feel like they are glad to have you stay at their property

Room Tip: Rooms on the front of the hotel have balconys with a view of the parkway.

My husband and I stayed here for our 26th Wedding Anniversary recently and we are glad we did. We decided to stay at Clarion Inn after seeing the great reviews and the high rating the hotel got. The check in/out was easy, the staff was very nice and helpful. the breakfast they have is great with everything you could want to eat. (That alone saved us lots of money) They also have snacks at night for their guests but I will have to say the massage chair was outstanding. The rooms was clean and comfortable. I will recommend this hotel to my friends and family and will stay here again. They truly go above and beyond what most hotels offer. Again GREAT place to stay. :)

This was our second time to Pigeon Forge. The hotel was modern and spotless. The rooms were very well equipped - was a real surprise for Clarion brand (it was a more upscale fitout than I had expected). Pool area was great - kids loved the water slide and the free shaved ice served by the pool - and cookies served in the lobby in the evening. Breakfast was also very good quality and we especially liked the fresh fruit salad available (rare find in breakfast areas of U.S hotels). Hotel was quiet and comfortable and all encounters with staff were friendly and pleasant. Would certainly recommend.

Check in was easy and pleasant. The staff was friendly. The room was beautiful and clean with all the features. The house keepers did an excellent job. My wife and I had a good view from our room on the backside of the hotel of the surrounding mountains. They have a full breakfast in the morning from 7-10:30am with more items than I could fit on one plate. This breakfast actually saved us a good amount of money because we didn't have to pay for it elsewhere every morning. Its nice that they run breakfast late because we didn't feel like we had to rush down for it. They have free coffee in the lobby 24/7. It was very nice to be able to grab a cup whenever I wanted. They also have cookies and popcorn every night from 7:15-8:15. The massage chairs were nice too! They definitly go the extra mile at this hotel! Scott was very nice and on checkout he gave us a coupon for free fudge. We will definately stay here again! Much better than any other hotel we have stayed at in the area!

We appreciate your taking the time to write a review and for staying with us. We always will have Something New and Something Different here at the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge. Our new Spa on the third floor is becoming one of the more popular places to go here at the hotel, This of course is just like the complimentary massage chair room and breakfast room, the places that our guests love the most. The breakfast room on a busy day feeds between 300 and 400 people in a 3 and 1/2 hour time period. This takes 3 to 4 staff members working very hard and in unison to make breakfast and keep it well supplied. Hats off to Alberto, Cheif Chef and his entire kitchin crew. The entire staff thanks you for your kind words and we look forward to you coming back to your Home away from Home, here at the Clarion Inn, "The Most Fun Place to stay in the SMOKIES"!!!
