We have stayed @ Park Tower Inn before and had a good stay except for the ROCK HARD beds. This trip I searched for another motel, reading HORRIBLE reviews of every motel in my price range. I decided to rebook @ PTI thinking, "better the evil you know..." but I had read that the 6th floor had been renovated with new mattresses. I reserved,online, a double queen and asked, if possible, for a renovated room.
We were pleased at check-in when the friendly desk clerks gave us keys to a room on the 6th floor! Our room was sparkling clean with the only odor being a hint of bathroom disinfectant. The beds were made with nicer than usual sheets, a cushy pillow-top mattress cover and a down comforter. I slept on top of the comforter for extra relief to my arthritic bones! My only request would have been for an extra blanket between the sheet and comforter. I'm sure the desk would have provided one if I'd asked. I slept very well after an extremely exhausting day of walking!
Although we did not get to use the pool-hot tub-lazy river this trip, we were given pool towels at check-in and our room was well stocked with bath towels. Our room was quiet and I never heard a sound from any other guest. This was also on a weekend ending our Spring Break so the hotel was pretty well booked.
We had eaten the free breakfast at PTI previously but were pleased with the addition of waffle makers. Of course there was a line for waffles and it was very crowded in the breakfast room. The staff however was very helpful and quickly refilled items as they were emptied. There was also a canned tropical fruit cocktail (we brought fresh fruit with us!), bagels, toast, 3 dry cereals, instant grits/oatmeal and biscuits & gravy. I had read many comments about cold hard biscuits. These are the same precooked, shelf stable tray biscuits sold at wholesale clubs such as Sam's Club. They are meant to be heated before serving and a couple of seconds in the microwave made all the difference. The gravy was instant but I've had the same in "Country Cookin" restaurants! Overall a filling breakfast which satisfied my belly and my wallet.
I will not waste my time searching for hotels in Pigeon Forge next time, just book at Park Tower Inn with confidence. A clean, comfortable room at a great price. Thanks Park Tower Inn!
