“SUPER SOUTHERN HOSPITALTY”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 13, 2012

From the moment we checked in at the desk, these folks could not have been more welcoming.
I stay in Hotels in my business a lot. This was a SUPER SOUTHERN HOSPITALITY Inn.
The next morning the rest of the staff was great also. The manager made every effort to ask if we needed anything several times. I highly recommend this Clarion Inn. It is not hidden away in the mountains but very close to stores on the main drive there in Pigeon Forge Tennessee. The value for this Inn. is very good also. Fresh cooked to order Omelets and other breakfast items. There is also a Hospitality treat around 5pm everyday. Just a great place!!! A+++++

Room Tip: Get a room with the Hot Tub.

Thank You for noting our Southern Hospitality and we will always welcome our guests with the Charm and Beauty of thr Great Smoky Mountains. The staff appreciates your kind words and for choosing us as your Home away from Home. Being clean, comfortable, and having a very broad breakfast were our first priorities in serving our guests. We then back that with customer service from the front of the house to the back of the house. Without servitude, you can't complete the recipe for a great stay for your customers. We want all our customers to feel as though they are in their Home away from Home when staying with us. Thank You for making us , yours'. We will see you here at Home, on your next visit !

My mom and I decided to visit the Clarion again this year for our annual Girl's Getaway Mini Vacation. Last year we stayed one night at the Clarion and one night at Inn at Christmas, but this year we decided that the Clarion met our budget. We loved our stay and will continue to make this a stop for our getaway.

The free breakfast is a great deal and we love the spacious rooms. We also, like the fact that Scott and the other employees really care about their guests satisfaction. As a matter of fact, Scott actually spends a lot of time talking with his guests.....the morning of our departure he was bringing out a stuffed bear for one of the guests as they were packing their car to leave. He also ask us if we enjoyed our stay and when he found out that we lived close by, ran inside to get us some coupons to use later.

We stayed at the Clarion Inn - Pigeon Forge for a short girls weekend and it was wonderful!! The hotel was more than accommodating, the entire place was clean and looked new. I could not say one thing bad about the staff. They were friendly and extremely helpful! It also is in a great location for walking or driving. Breakfast was wonderful with lots of choices. Can't wait until I can stay there again, hope to bring my family at Christmas.

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.
