My husband and I stayed here in May for a night to celebrate our 10th anniversary. This was our first experience staying at a Clarion hotel, and we were not disappointed. Beautiful facility, friendly staff, and just far enough out of the "hustle and bustle" of the area attractions. We stayed in a Jacuzzi suite that had a fireplace...absolutely beautiful and very romantic!

We spent two nights at the Clarion in mid-October. Yes a very busy, "in season" time of year in this area but, for $109 a night I would like a place to park my vehicle and maybe a little more attention (or staffing) when the facility is booked to capacity.

We pulled up to the hotel and went WOW! The exterior of the building was decorated beautifully. The entry way shows off the numerous awards they win every year for landscaping and holiday decorating. Absolutely well deserved. We were pretty psyched.

Then we tried to find a place to park, to check in. EVERY parking spot on site was taken, and the half circle driveway for checkin was clogged with cars. I get dropped off to checkin, while BF circles around for a parking spot. Checkin was smooth and speedy. I exit the building, and BF is still circling for a parking space. Now we are both getting annoyed.

I find a luggage trolley, wheel it out into the parking lot, load it up and head to the room. Finally the bedraggeld BF arrives, someone finally left, and he grabbed the parking space. This put a definite damper on our thought to go out to grab a drink, a light dinner - who wants to hassle with parking when you get back? So we stayed in, and ordered pizza delivery. Too bad you can not order beer and wine delivery too! LOL

Next morning get up, go to make coffee... only DECAF was left on the tray next to the coffee maker. Argh. We get dressed, head down to the breakfast and of course, it was mobbed! Three deep for coffee and waffles, no open tables on the porch, none in the eating area, biscuits ran out... we sat with another couple, and that turned out fine actually. The second morning we went down as soon as we opened our eyes at 7 AM - a far better experience.

To be fair, it was not the breakfast lady's fault. She was hustling, refilling food, wiping tables, and apologizing to all. They really needed to staff the breakfast with another person to keep up with demand. I am sure the same is true of housekeeping. They were likely rushing to get the rooms done, no one noticed there were no regular coffee packets.

I have had great experiences with the Clarion as a chain, this one was just "EH" for the price I paid.

Room Tip: Go to breakfast early if the hotel is full.

MY husband and I just got back from the Smokey Mountains. We spent 2 nights at the Clarion Willow River in Sevierville. It has that old southern charm of Tara from Gone With the Wind. The employees were all very helpful and check-in was quick and efficient. The continental breakfast was nice. Not alot of food but enough choices for the price you pay which is nothing. They have a small work out room. It consists of 1 treadmill, 1 elliptical, and 1 stationary bike. I used them both days and was always alone. Our room was sufficient with a microwave, fridge and coffee maker. It wasn't the Ritz but I wasn't paying for the Ritz. But it was clean, quiet and comfortable and nice place to call home. We would go back and stay again.

Room Tip: We had a first floor room and it was a little dark. We thought an upper floor may have been brighter. But it was quiet.

We have stayed at this hotel many times & it's always a welcoming experience. It feels like visiting old friends. The rooms are always clean & tastefully decorated. They always have hot apple cider & coffee in the lobby 24/7. Friendly staff. It's very peaceful & quiet. We were there on 10/31/2011 for the night and as always we truly enjoyed our stay and plan to return in a couple of weeks for a longer stay.

Room Tip: all of the rooms at this hotel are excellent
