If you are going to the Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, TN area, this is the place to stay. Every thing about our visit was perfect. The staff were attentive to our needs and extremely friendly. The location was convenient, yet off the beaten path. We enjoy reading the daily paper and had 3 to choose from. The breakfast was wonderful and the breakfast staff were great. We felt welcome from the moment we walked in the door until the moment we left. Thanks Clarion Inn for a great experience! The rating reflects an excellent rating for the restaurant but there is no restaurant in this hotel. The rating reflects the breakfast area.

The stay got off to a good start. The evening staff at the counter, Matt and Seth, welcomed us with a full overview of the hotel's many amenities. Heated indoor pool and hot tub, heated lazy river (still too cold for adults), two-story water slide, firepit, 40-item complimentary breakfast featuring Krispy Kreme Donuts and made-to-order omelet station, 3 incredible massage chairs, workout room, multi-cade arcade machine, clean rooms, comfortable beds, and the list goes on. This place was absolutely terrific! The entire staff is very well aware of the good reviews here on Trip Advisor and takes great pride in making sure your stay is a memorable one. The hotel has many discounts to local attractions and restaurants, so make sure you talk to them about your plans--they can save you $$.

We will definitely stay here again--the hotel was the best part of the entire trip.

We are tour operators from Ohio. My husband and I stayed at the Clarion this past Spring (2012) and loved the hotel and all it had to offer. This fall we brought a motorcoach group to enjoy the fall foliage and were thrilled to be able to stay here. The rooms are slightly oversized, clean and comfortable. The group loved the great breakfast and the convenience of having a number of restaurants within walking distance plus being able to board the trolley out front. The staff was always ready to help our passengers. In addition, the complimentary massage chairs are awesome! For our groups, we don't know of a better hotel in the area!

Choice Travel, We so loved hosting your group and as you can see, we are good at feeding 300 to 400 people in just over 3 hours here at the hotel. We have always taken care of groups and continued to feed the rest of our guests without them even knowing we have big groups in sometimes. We love our motor coach and tour operators. We are sometimes considered on the high end for their groups but with all the savings we have for their packages, the amount of amenities and services, and the highest return customer base they receive when staying with us, they can't help but not stay. Especially when they are growing their business because of the type service they receive from our hotel! I could not tell you the number of operators, tour consultants and individual guests that all say the same thing."Why stay at the rest, when you can have the best, all while saving money and building your business".If your an individual or even business, and you get the big picture on how to save money all while getting the best overall stay then you will want to look at the Clarion Inn Pigeon Forge....The Most Fun Place to stay in the SMOKIES !!

We decided to take a quick weekend trip on the spur of the moment and were fortunate that this hotel had space. Although they only had 2 queens available, it was completely adequate. Linens & bedding were outstanding. Breakfast (included) was as good as any restaurant would charge $10-$15 each. The staff was very friendly (the manager remembered us from previous visits) and made check in and out a breeze. They have better discount tickets to area attractions than we have seen elsewhere. The location could not be batter - off the parkway but behind a new shopping area with a couple of attractions and good restaurants. We were able to make use of the free massage chairs we have not seen anywhere else. A good location for a family with small children as there is a good indoor and outdoor pool. The jacuzzi is outdoors so might be a bit on the chilly side during cold months.

Room Tip: The rear may have less noise on the lower floors, but we have stayed on both sides and different flo...

We love to welcome our repeat guests back and we are glad you enjoyed another stay. Keep in mind we have an outdoor Jacuzzi and an indoor one as well. They both stay on year round, so if you like to sit in one with the snowfall or would like to sit in the indoor one and watch the snowwfall, you could. Most people love our breakfast because of the amount of items to choose from. Everything in our hotel is complimentary and included in your rate unless you are wanting a Spa appointment, then their rates are very reasonable. We always welcome our guests back home and look forward to your next stay. Have a Happy Thanksgiving and a Merry Christmas....

This hotel is about 2 years old. I only hope that the hotel maintains the same high standard of quality that it currently has. We were within walking distance to many eateries, the movie theater, and many shops. With us being right off of the main strip in Pigeon Forge, there was really no need for us to have a car. We could just ride the trolley everywhere we wanted to, including Gatlinburg. To make things much better, the parking was free, the free breakfast was really good, and the free massage chairs were really nice. Also they have many discount tickets to shows and the movie theater.

This was our 7th time to stay in the area since 1998, and we have tried other places before finding this one with the help of all the great Trip Advisor reviews on this place.
We are glad we chose to stay here. Staff was courteous and helpful, the hotel is in excellent condition. All these rave reviews are true. Even the review that cautioned about the toilet space being on the narrow side for larger folks, turned out to be no problem, even though I am in a bigger size category than he was indicating might have a problem with the width of the toilet room.
Our room had a balcony, a very good bed, and a very quiet flush toilet. Getting your omelets cooked to order for you each morning could become habit-forming. Several other breakfast choices to choose from, including waffles. They also had actual, real, fresh fruit cups.
Reasonable rates, this is the place for us in Pigeon Forge!

I've stayed numerous times in Pigeon Forge. This hotel is by far the best accommodations in the area. They are quite friendly, the beds are very comfortable, & great breakfast. I won't stay anywhere else if I have the option to stay here. I've stayed at hotels that cost three times as much and provided half the amenities and service. I'd rate it a 10 stars if that was an option. Kudos to Scott and thanks for the great stay!
