This is our 4th time at the clarion Inn in pigeon forge. Wonderful as always. Only thing really is I missed the previous manager. He was always walking around talking with guests, and helping with breakfast as he socialized. I also missed several of the previous staff that appears to no longer to be there. Housekeeping slacked a little. No washcloths or bathmat first day and no coffee refill second. No biggie tho cause front desk was happy to fix it. You will not be disappointed at this hotel. It exceeds expectations. It is a little expensive for us but we like to know what we will be getting before we get there. Comfy bed, great indoor pool and awesome free breakfast. Also popcorn and fresh baked cookies at 7pm each day. We always bring our granddaughter (now 6) and she calls it "her hotel".

Dear Jane, Let me apologize for the housekeeping snafu, but I am glad the front desk was able to help you. Being a tourist town there is quite a bit of turn over in employees, Scott is now over at the Margaritaville Hotel at the Island. I look forward to meeting you the next time you bring your granddaughter back to her hotel.

This is the second year we have stayed at Clarion Inn on Waldens Main St. It is a wonderful place to stay! Nice staff, great facility. Our kids love the outdoor swimming activities. The continental breakfast is second to none. We will always stay here as long as the service stays the same.

We are so glad you enjoy staying with us. As far as the service, we only get better as we learn what people want and need as they travel. Next time you visit us you should try the full service spa located on the 3rd floor for a relaxing massage.

This hotel was wonderful. Everyone at the desk was awesome. They had a game room for the kids that was fun and the indoor and outdoor pools were wonderful and very clean. The slide was fun and the fireplace next to the outdoor jacuzzi was beautiful. The omlets they made for breakfast were delicious. We will definetly stay there the next time we visit

Dear Missykayg, Thank you for the nice review. I am so glad you and you kids had a good time while visiting Pigeon Forge. I have to agree we do have a great breakfast buffet, and it is only going to get better in the next couple of weeks with the "Grab and Go" option we are adding for people on the run.

We stayed here over the weekend after the other hotel we reserved ended up being terrible (red roof inn). We called to see if they had any rooms and they advised they just had one open up (at 630pm on a sat). I reserved the room over phone till we could get there. The lady at front desk was very helpful. She advised in the meeting area they were having free drinks (lemonade, water), popcorn and snacks. The room was a double queen with a 32" flat screen tv. Beds were a little firm but ok. The room had a balcony with 2 chairs on it that you could see the strip. They also provide free breakfast. This is not your normal hotel breakfast. They had made to order omelets, pancakes, cereal, waffles, sausage, bacon, potatoes, biscuit and gravy and fruit. For a family this is a great way to save a lot of money. We enjoyed the breakfast. We can not wait to stay here again next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is facing towards the strip.

Dear Allynbrian, I am sorry you had a bad experience at another hotel in Pigeon Forge, but we are certainly glad we could help make your visit a little better. I have to agree we do have the best free breakfast I have seen at any location I have stayed at, and it certainly saves a lot on the food budget when you travel with kids. We all hope to see you again on your next visit to the Smoky Mountains.

Our family of 3 stayed here for 4 nights for spring break. We decided this year we would try a new place and we were not disappointed!! We usually stay at the Econo Lodge on the river but wanted something new. The Clarion cost more but it was worth it. The rooms are bigger, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was awesome with made to order omelets as well as everything thing else you can find at your typical breakfast buffet. The pooland hot tub were excellent. We will definitely return.

Thank you for taking time to write a review, and we are so glad you decided to give us a try. If you come back this summer please enjoy some complimentary snow cones poolside in the afternoon after a tiring day at Dollywood.

Stayed here several times. As usual, super clean, very nice staff, and great breakfast. Great location. Easy walking distance of lots of great places the kids like to go. The kids loved the complimentary lemonade and punch just out side the elevators on the first floor.

Room Tip: Kids love the 6th floor facing the strip. They can see MagiQuest and The Wheel at The Island.

My husband and I stayed on night 5-09-14, as a "Mom and Dad get away". This was our 3rd time staying here. No complaints at all, very clean and the decor is pleasing to the eye. Breakfast is wonderful! Staff is friendly. This is our "go to" place.
On a side note.....my husband surprised me with a beautiful diamond ring on this night, to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary! Special memories!
