Let me start by saying that my family is the outdoorsy type, so we don't go to Pigeon Forge/Sevierville for the gawdy, cheesy tourist places that apparently attract many others. We go to have a jumping off point for spending time in and exploring the park. For this purpose, I think the resort is a little too far away, particularly in October, high season for the fall colors. Traffic on the main thoroughfare to the park was horrendous.
That said, this is a good place to stay if you don't mind the location. We'd read earlier reviews about the walls and floors being thin and poor views overlooking the parking lot, so I asked for a top floor room overlooking a forested view. We got the latter, but didn't get the former. We were told that they were at "100% capacity," but this didn't seem to be the case, as we saw many unoccupied units. Nonetheless, the people above us were very quiet, so no problems there. The condo itself was neat and clean, though the kitchen was not as well equipped as I am used to in rental cabins. No pizza pan or cookie sheet--we had to ask for one to make homemade pizza one night. (It is supposed to be in the unit.)
We made use of the exercise room, the pools, the hot tub, and the mini golf. The pools, both inside and outside, are heated, which was nice this time of year, and they are kept very clean. The hot tub is outside, and my only complaint about it was that either the seats should have been built lower or they need to raise the water level. The water only came to my low chest, leaving too much skin exposed in the cool weather. The exercise room was well-equipped, and both the machines and the individual TVs worked well. The mini golf seemed in good condition to me, despite other negative reviews.
Even though it's a bit far from the park, I'd stay here again, but maybe not in high season.
