My idea of a vacation is to enjoy the city or venue that I wish to visit. In the past I have stayed in really nice hotels with all the amenities, but at what cost?
Yes this hotel is older and could use a few updates. My recommendations are an iron and ironing board and a slightly larger refrigerator. (Especially if you visit the Old Mill) We travel with pets and this is a really nice place to stay with them. I have stayed in this hotel before and was equally pleased with the rooms.
I go to Pigeon forge to have fun and the value of this hotel and its location allow me to do just that! The rooms are clean and kept that way, the front desk people are incredible! The staff has been very helpful and informative each visit. The hotel is situated at the beginning of Pigeon Forge, close to Gatlinburg and has a trolley stop right in front.
The complementary pancake breakfast is very good and the restaurant staff is very friendly.
Everyone has different tastes and expectations when staying at a hotel, mine are simple. I can spend a lot more seeing the sites, enjoying the area than I would on a hotel.
My dogs like it and I was not disturbed at all by dogs barking in other rooms. It is a good location, clean, has free internet, swimming pool and breakfast.
I use the hotel to change clothes, shower and sleep when the day is over.
The front desk and house-keeping staff are very accommodating, friendly and helpful.
Personally, I like the hotel and the staff and will stay here on my next visit.
