It is difficult to find a nice hotel in the Pigeon Forge area, so we traveled down the road to Dandridge TN, just off I-40. Neat stop, and the historic downtown for us was worth the look. Although about 30 minutes from Pigeon Forge the Holiday Inn Express was a welcomed clean and friendly hotel. I thought he pet fee was sort of high for the area, generally when accepted Holiday Inns are around the $25.00 range, but they charge $50, for most just about the cost of the room. They said for the extra cleaning....the room was clean, but come on. However all things considered and the options for other pet friendly hotels would have me come back and stay here.
the check in was easy although they put a platinum member on the first floor right next to the breakfast room, the clerk said that is usually the last room filled, not sure why they put us there, but she moved us to a higher floor and was very friendly about it. They were also very friendly anytime we walked by. The hotel has a magnificent view if you are facing the back would have loved to seen it when the fall leaves were turning.
All in all a good hotel and good value, again much better than the hotels in the Pigeon Forge area that accept pets!
