“Awesome Hotel”
Reviewed April 28, 2013

This was one of the nicest hotels I have ever stayed in. Not only was our room so big with a fireplace, jacuzzi tub, and patio but the staff were so nice. Also, the hotel was very clean and had a freshly cleaned smell. I would stay here a million more times. It wont let me take my restaraunt rating away. There wasn't a restaraunt at this hotel so disregard that.

The customer service was excellent! The rooms are spotless, and it was the best shower I've had in a long time. Right in the middle of town so everything is easy to get to. Would recommend to anyone, and definitely would stay here again!

We stayed at this hotel this past weekend for the rod run. It was very close to everything we went to the lumberjack feud and were able to walk there. Another nice this was it was away from the main road so we did not have the annoyance of all the people and cars to deal with. The massage Chairs were nice. This hotel is very modern and up to date. Our hotel room had the heating thermostat on the wall which made it nice not only because it worked so well but it wasn't the typical noisy system. I knew this was a nice hotel and commented to my fiancé many times of how fresh the entire hotel smelled, hallways, elevator, rooms. The staff was also very friendly while checking in and out... Nice place to stay. I highly recommend it and I am pretty picky....

This place is a true gem. Ultra clean rooms, great breakfast and even a spa on site. The prices are unbeatable for the amenities and service you receive. We travel quite a bit for business but this hotel always makes us feel at home. The friendly staff is always welcoming and attentive to all our needs. It's a little bit of luxury nestled in the mountains. Make sure to check out the King suite with a fireplace and hot tub! Perfect for a romantic getaway!

The staff and management are very appreciative to all our guests' and want them to feel at home when staying here at the Clarion Inn. We feel your stay should be memorable; filled with comfort, hassle free pampering that allows your vacation or business trip to be the best it can be. While in the area, if you are going to a show or attraction just check with the front desk about savings on tickets and getting it booked. If you should want additional pampering outside our massage chairs just call room 321 and set your appointment for the Spa.

We are 2 hours away from the smokies, so we frequent them often. I have never stayed in a hotel in Pigeon Forge that was this fantastic. We had a nice, cozy, clean room that had an amazing view from the balcony. WE checked in in the evening, and we have a small child, they gave her a very nice stuffed bear and it made her day. We had a great breakfast every morning at their breakfast bar. The pools were so clean. We met the manager while we were at breakfast one morning, and he was so friendly and kind. I believe his name was Scott. So, do not hesitate to stay at this Clarion. IT IS THE BEST PLACE TO STAY IN PIGEON FORGE and GATLINBURG!

This was our first time staying at the Clarion Inn and it cerainly will not be our last! We made a recent trip to Pigeon Forge for the spring rod run. We looked for a good deal not too far away from the show grounds. The price was a bit high but comparable to other hotels nearby due to the events going on that weekend. The facility itself was very impressive and our room was the cleanest room we have ever stayed in. The staff was always friendly and would greet you upon your return. The breakfast served daily was always fresh and hot. The variety of options and the quality of the food definately helped to make up for some of the extra cost. When you figure that going to a nicer restaurant (non fast food) you would spend at least $20 plus tip, this was more than worth it! Every evening at 7 they would have a meet and greet and serve fresh popcorn and warm cookies. We will be back for sure!

Hey Folks, Thanks for putting in the review here on trip advisor and we noticed your just a hop skip and jump from us in nearby Knoxville. Well, we like to spoil the folks that are in our own back yard too! As far as the room price please make sure you compare apples to apples and oranges to oranges. We do have a nicer hotel than most and offer a whole lot more amenities than most and of course most of all we keep it clean, comfortable, and friendly...Just like home. So we are hoping that you find us the best place and the best price for what we have, and what we can save you while your here. Thank You again for staying with us and we hope ya'll will come back by and see us anytime your over this way as we would look forward to having you visit again!

My only complaint is that our stay was so short. This hotel was excellent. It was perfectly clean-which is of the utmost importance to me. The staff was attentive and helpful. Comfy beds, wonderful massage chairs, great breakfast, etc. I made my reservation online and indicated a room location preference in the request box. When we checked in, without any other mention, we were in the exact location I requested. Additionally, we arrived several hours before check-in time and although our room was not ready the desk manager checked us in, took my cell number and called me immediately when the room was ready (which was actually very quickly). Our stay was during the spring rod run, which is typically very crowded so we anticipated having trouble with parking of our trailer, among other things. Not here, the management was more than helpful with everything, allowing us to park our vehicle, trailer and our hot rod without any hassle-in fact they actually helped. Can't say enough good about this hotel and staff.
