“Not too impressed”
Reviewed August 19, 2008

We stayed Aug. 10th-14th. We had reserved a two room suite that was supposed to have a king bed and bunk beds. We had no bunk beds, Sleeper sofa was terrible. Room wasn't swept the whole time we were there and not too sure the sheets were changed either. The motel has only one elevator and it is very slow. Hallways and elevator were quite warm. There was a dehumidifier in the hall a couple of days. We will not stay there again. The lady at the desk was very polite.

  • Liked — two rooms
  • Disliked — slow elevator/cleanliness

We arrived July 26 and stayed through July 31. We had the two room King Suite. We noticed the room had a musty pungent odor right away. The room itself was average. We wondered if the odor was from the Jacuzzi being over flowed. We thought maybe the odor would go away once the room was aired out. I contacted the front desk to ask for another room the following morning. The gentleman advised he would get back with me, but never did. The bed was very comfortable and the location was great. Was not impressed with the breakfast. Was not a horrible stay, but would not stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here on July 8th and 9th while exploring the Smoky Mountains. I got a good rate going directly to the Red Roof Inns web site. The hotel is located in one of the more attractive areas on the Pigeon Forge strip. We were quite amused at the heavy promotions in our room and even on our key cards imploring us to visit such things as "Black Bear Jamboree", "The Comedy Barn", and "Hoot N' Holler".

The breakfast buffet is from 7 to 10, and the room is a little cramped. However, if you don't mind sitting outside (and we love it to get away from the air conditioning which always seems too cold!), there is a lovely patio just outside where you can sit at tables underneath umbrellas. The coffee was quite weak, so I got mine at a nearby Burger King (just south one block down on US441, next to Calhoun's). There is also an Atlanta Bread Company just a short walk from the hotel, but it does not open until 8.

There were lots of kids at the hotel thoroughly enjoying themselves. So, if you love Pigeon Forge, this is a good place to stay. But if you are strictly a Smoky Mountains nature visitor, you may want to find a hotel a bit closer to the mountains. Traffic is very heavy through Pigeon Forge on US441 at all hours of the day and night.

Our stay didn't start out very well when the front desk wouldn't even let us check in a little early. I've stayed at a lot of hotels and never had that happen before. The staff wasn't a bit friendly. Only one elevator and you usually had to wait for awhile. We ended up taking the stairs a lot because it was faster. The toilets are sooo noisy. I hated every time that I flushed because I felt like everyone in the hotel knew it. The breakfast was very disappointing. The mixed fruit was warm and the biscuits weren't even heated up. The breakfast area is way too small. The room itself was really nice-had a king size bed, sleeper sofa,tables,t.v.,etc. We were there for 4 days and the first day we checked in it was our 18th wedding anniversary.

Although we checked in late, our room was ready. We had the kid cabin suite which had bunk beds for 2 kids and a sofa bed for the other 2 kids. Our room had a king size bed with a jacuzzi in the room. Both rooms had TV with cable. The kids room also had an Xbox system (games and controller rental was 10.00 a day extra). A kitchenette with dishes, a refrigerator, sink, and microwave was attached to the kids room. There was a table with 4 chairs and chair with ottoman in our room. The in-door pool was open 24 hours. The king size bed felt great. It was very comfortable. My kids said the bunk beds were fine. The sofa bed was terrible. You could feel the springs ( I put my youngest two 5 yr old and 3 yrs old in this bed and they were fine). The room was very spacious and roomy. We really enjoyed the space. The staff was friendly and helpful. Our room and bathroom was clean. The linen smelled fresh. The view from our windows was the front parking lot and part of the building . All of us enjoyed this hotel and we will use it again when in Pigeon Forge, TN!

  • Liked — The room had lots of storage space and open space.
  • Disliked — The sofa bed was terrible.

We recently stayed at the Red Roof Inn for four nights. The room was clean and spacious. My kids really liked the heated indoor pool. The breakfast buffet was average. Breakfast consisted of 3 different kinds of mini muffins, bagels, toast, biscuits and gravy, cereal, and fruit. The hotel only has one elevator so we often had to wait a long time for the elevator or take the stairs. The main complaint I have with the hotel is with the bathroom. The toilet in our bathroom often did not flush properly and you could hear plumbing noises when people in other rooms flushed their toilets. We had to turn on the fan at night to drown out the plumbing noises.

Since the hotel was clean and reasonably priced, I would recommend the hotel to others.

Great place to stay. Our room was in the 5th floor and it was very clean. The bed was very comfortable and the room has no smell to it. The slow elevator did not bother us because we'd rather take the stairs anyway. So far, nothing but the best for this hotel. Free breakfast was good compared to other places.We stayed there for 5 days and will certainly use this hotel again next year.
