The owner really cares and makes sure you are happy. Breakfast is fulfilling and delicious! All kinds of meats and sides. My daughter loves the cookies they bake at night. The IPads in the gathering area were a big hit. The slide outdoors is fun fun fun! Must stay!

The staff, management, and owners were so happy to read your review and are very happy the hotel was a big hit, especially with the kids. A stay at a hotel should be clean, comfortable, fun, and affordable for the services and stay you receive. Thank You for making us your Home away from Home and we look forward to seeing you back here at the Most Fun Place to stay in the SMOKIES!

The Clarion has become our favorite hotel in the Dollywood area. Great location. Walking distance to many different restaurants. No Way Jose is the closest and one of our favorites.

Staff was friendly. Rooms were very clean.

We loved having a ceiling fan.

Thank You for your review and for making us your Home away from Home. Yes, there are several restaurants right here at Waldens Landing. People are very surprised with everything we have here close by and with the services of the hotel. This along with our customer service is why we received "Hotel of the Year" award at the Choice Hotels International Awards Banquet in Los Angeles this past week. We appreciate you and all of our customers along with all our business partners within our community that help to make us a true hotel experience. We look forward to yours' and everyones' next visit to East Tennessee and the Great Smokey Mountains!!

After several...not so pleasant stays in Pigeon Forge when was delighted with Clarion Inn - Pigeon Forge TN.
The room was very clean....the pools, hot tubs was very clean and in great order. They have massage chairs (free) and an outstanding breakfast (included)...gravy biscuits, omelets, fresh fruit, juice, cereal and much more. Our family met the manager of hotel at breakfast and he gave every kid a stuffed animal.
I was overall very impressed....felt like home away from home.

Thanks to all you at Clarion,
The Kelly Family

Room Tip: We enjoyed the backside view of the mountains.

We love having our families back again and again, which is why we put customer service number 1. The best hotels don't just create good memories on vacation time with families, they help make them happen. These are part of the many reasons we have some of the amenities we have such as IPADS on the wall for the kids to play with, extended pool hours, a water slide, a large buffet breakfast with lots to choose from and many others. Quality time with family should be a wonderful hassle free time that creates great memories. We are glad you have wonderful memories here at your Home away from Home.

Chose hotel based on TA and weren't disappointed. Room was spacious, clean and had everything you would need including great curtains that enabled us to have the best sleep. Used the well-appointed gym and laundry and both were great; and breakfast was wonderful with fresh fruit salad and made-to-order omelettes (with veggies). Staff were also very friendly and helpful and had a good knowledge of local area and attractions.

Thank You for your review and most people that don't read your reviews here on trip advisor are pleasantly surprised when they stay here at the Clarion Inn /Dollywood area for the first time. We always try to answer any and all questions when making reservations for that first time guest so they know a little about what we offer and how we can make their stay more enjoyable. Our full hot American buffet breakfast does seem to be one of our more popular items, especially knowing it's free and included with your stay. We appreciate you making us your Choice Hotel, and for telling others about us. We will look forward to your return soon!!

On results of other TA decided to try this hotel. We stayed for three days and had an awesome experience. Everything was great. Our room was very spacious and loved having extra towels in bath. The room was spotless and the bed very comfortable. Was concerned being close to ice & vending machine, as am a very light sleeper. Really no problem as it was behind doors. Only heard some noise when others would enter, but very slight. By far, their breakfast exceeded all reviews. Even better than some restuarants in this area. Such a large selection, everyone should be pleased. In fact, liked everything about this hotel. Staff was well trained and very pleasant. Especially liked that Scott (manager) had plans for expansion. Would be very easy to just rest on the laurels that the hotel already has, but should be even better in the future. Am really looking forward to next trip as we go up fairly often. Have now found a new favorite place to stay. All hotel managers need to be as concerned about their guests and hotel as Scott does. Looking forward to next trip.

Room Tip: Was on top floor and seemed to be a quiet floor. Although several tour buses stayed also, noise was...
