“Best value we had on our vacation”
Reviewed September 7, 2012 via mobile

We stopped here on the drive back from myrtle beach and got a room with the aaa discount for $53. The room was really big with a sitting area and very clean. The pools were also very nice. Breakfast was also included at no charge so I highly recommend it. The only dr aback is the hotel is about eight miles from any major attractions but again for the price, it was worth the little extra drive.

Stayed September 2012, traveled with family

We have stayed at the Clarion Inn many times and have found it to be wonderful. The staff is very accommodating, rates are great, the rooms are large and well appointed, the grounds are beautiful. It is very clean and well kept-- the breakfast is better than most hotels offer--loved the "big waffles" and breasfast is available until 10 a.m. in a very attractive indoor/ourdoor dining area. It has a "Gone With the Wind" theme throughout which adds a little Southern charm. Linens are a bit dated and no flat screen TVs yet--but we love it and were there for 4 nights for our 42nd anniversary in mid-August. Also our WiFi connection was good there.

Thanks so much for staying with us! We are in the process of completely changing the way we do our bedding, and the TV's are next on the list. We are happy that you found us, and we appreciate your generous words.

I was pleasantly surprised by my four night stay. Room was clean, spacious and comfortable. There were two sinks, microwave, and fridge. There's a sitting area and balcony in addition to sleeping area. Front desk staff was pleasant and very helpful before and during my stay. The pools were nice and convenient hours. Lazy river was relaxing. Breakfast was good....similar to other hotels. It's the same every day. I liked the location being close enough to attractions without being in the heart of the craziness of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. There's a place for excellent cheesecake just down the highway. My only complaint is that the shampoo was cheap so I ended up buying some. I would definitely recommend this hotel to anyone staying in the area. This was my first stay in a Clarion but won't be my last.

Room Tip: There isn't really a mountain view from this hotel.

This is a great place to stay while in the Gatlinburg area. The hotel looks like an old southern mansion and has a "Gone with the Wind" theme. Indoor heated pool and hot tub, outdoor pool, and lazy river. Breakfast is about the same as others. Waffle maker, boiled eggs, fruit coctail, cereal, biscuits, and a meat. They have sausage one day and bacon the other. Coffee and Hot Cider is available all day in the lobby. The hotel is clean and up to date. There is a microwave and fridge in each room.

Room Tip: They are all good rooms.

We were visiting the area and stayed overnight at this hotel. Beautifully appointed grounds that resembled a resort rather than a hotel. We loved the lazy river and the room was nice. We got such a great rate that we were extrememly satisfied. We didn't have any issues during our stay. Many of the rooms have balconies and it was so nice to sit outside on our balcony after we put the kids to bed.

The hotel is a lil dated. You walk into the lobby with a grand staircase and Gone with the Wind memorabilia. Stephanie at the front desk was very friendly and able to multitask with ease. Check in was easy, however after reading the contract I realized that if you use the safe you are charged $1.50. The indoor pool, outdoor pool, Jacuzzi, and lazy river was nice for the kids, however some lights were out in the lazy river. Our room was a double queen with a sleeper sofa. The pillows were flat as could be...they really need to be replaced. The rooms need to be updated. Just new bedding would be a huge difference. Overall for the price we paid, this is great value.
