“Excellent!!!!!!”
Reviewed March 3, 2014

We checked in and the Front Desk Personnel was very nice. This Hotel has the works and is very clean and accommodating. This is our new place to stay when we head to Pigeon Forge. Indoor pool which the kids loved. our original reservation was for 1 night but when we got there we decided the next morning we were staying another night. Didn't want to leave this place is Awesome. From one Hotel to Another Great Job!!!!!

Thank you so much for the wonderful review, it certainly is a great compliment coming from another hotelier who knows how difficult it can be sometimes to keep everything operating smoothly. I hope we can enjoy the company of you and your family again.

Another great stay at the Clarion Inn. As usual the rooms and hotel were very clean. They took the down pillows out of our room prior to check in as requested. We had the top floor parkway view and it is so nice to go out on balcony to see the hot air balloon up in the air or the Skyweel running with all its beautiful lights. Had no problems with sounds from outside. Friday mornings breakfast wasn't very hot, but we think that had to do with not many people there for breakfast. We ate at a little after 8 am and there was only two couples at one table there, so the sausage, bacon was not hot. But thats ok, sometimes things like that happens. I am sure Saturday mornings breakfast was all hot, as there were people everywhere for breakfast. We didn't eat there Saturday morning as we usually go out for breakfast one time. The lady who checked us in after 4 on Thursday was very nice, sorry I didn't get her name, and Sheila who checked us out, was nice as usual. They had the popcorn in the evenings and free newspapers in the morning. We noticed this time that they had lemonade, punch and three types of coffees out by the elevators for people to enjoy. I was sad not to see Scott Ellis the former manager, but heard he went on to be the new GM for the Margaritaville Island Hotel when it opens this spring. We were hoping to meet the new GM for the Clarion, Ian, but didn't get a chance to see or meet him. I am sure he is very nice also. We love it when the managers come around to see if everything is ok with the stay. It is a very nice touch. The outdoor slide and lazy river opened for the season but we didn't get a chance to use it or the inside pool, but both are very nice and clean. Can't wait tom come back next time, because it is so nice to have a hotel that you feel comfortable staying in time after time.

Room Tip: We love the top few floors facing the parkway. You can enjoy watching the Skywheel with their lights...

First off, I would like to say that the Reviews on here are correct. This hotel is wonderful! Me & my husband arrived late on Friday night, and check- in was a breeze. Our room was the king Jacuzzi suite, the room was very nice & clean. On the bed was 2 movie tickets and a sign that said Happy Anniversary! plus some chocolate. We were shock to see that on the bed. We Really Appreciated! Our weekend was Great, and we will be back for my Birthday this month. I usually stay at Park Vista, and it's a little pricey. But this hotel will be the only one I stay at for now on, when I come to Pigeon Forge!!! p.s. we didn't eat the breakfast here, but the food smell really good....

Room Tip: Top floor! the view is wonderful!!!

My family spent the night at this hotel and loved it as usual. This is our fourth time staying here and they amaze me every time. The breakfast has a great selection with made to order omelets. The pool is wonderful with a basketball goal which my son loved. The staff is always friendly and are ready to answer any questions you have. I highly recommend. You won't be disappointed.

This hotel deserves more than 5 stars! We just returned home from our 4 night stay and it was amazing! Clean, friendly, and inviting. Breakfast was beyond your everyday continental breakfast. Do not have a negative thing to say! Will be back here for sure! Thank you Clarion for an amazing visit!

We stayed at this hotel for a week last Sept. There was nothing we could say we didn't like about it.The hotel served an outstanding complimentary full breakfast every morning.The manager would walk around asking us if everything was okay. The people at the desk were so friendly and helpful, we were extremely impressed. They gave us coupons for activities and help us with directions. We were also exceptionally pleased with how clean our room was. It was nice to go out on our balcony in the evening, relax and enjoy watching couples riding in the lighted horse drawn carriage. The location of the hotel, we thought, was excellent.They have an indoor pool and outdoor jaccuzzi along with a lazy river, which we really enjoyed a lot. It would be very hard to find a better hotel than this, for the money. If we go back, we'll stay here again.

We stayed at this hotel on January 24, 2014. That was our first time staying there and we are already booked again for March. Fancy, clean and very inviting. When we arrived, there was a lady sitting at the piano playing in the lobby. The room had a super sized king bed with tons of pillows and down comforter. We had a balcony but didn't get to use it b/c it was so cold. The hotel was spotless and so was the room. The only thing I can remotely think of that we didn't like was there wasn't an ice machine on our floor. They are on every other floor, I believe. But on our floor there was a full massage salon. The breakfast was fantastic! Full breakfast, not continental. There were biscuits and gravy, bacon, breakfast potatoes and a slew of other foods. It's right at Light 3 (Wears Valley Road) and in the middle of everything.You have Calhouns Steakhouse, Smoky Mountain Brewery Restaurant, a mexican restaurant, a movie theater, Kroger's, putt putt golf, library, Taco Bell, Subway, Burger King.......all right outside the hotel that you can walk too. I'm talking RIGHT THERE! Awesome location. We only live 2 hours away from Pigeon Forge so we are over there about every six weeks staying in hotels and or cabins. We've been doing that for more years then I can count and this is DEFINITELY one of the finest hotels in the area. We have stayed at other hotels that are nice in P.F that aren't Choice Hotels. Out of all the Choice hotels/motels that we have stayed at in P.F. this one is by FAR the best. You can not go wrong with this hotel!
