I found a good price on this through Choice Hotels, and decided to give it a try. The staff is very friendly and helpful. There is free pancakes in the attached restaurant in the morning and they are good, and we got them super fast. You also receive a free box of taffy upon checkout which is a very nice gesture. The staff was willing to work with us running behind and not charge any extra. There is a dollar fee per day for using the in-room safe which is kind of odd to me, but I guess a dollar is worth the safety of my valuables..my only problem is that our safe was a dud or something and my stuff got stuck in it. The manager was very quick to help us, but had to try to reach maintenance since it was late evening, and my boyfriend and I eventually got it open ourselves. The dollar fee was little unfortunate given our trouble lol. But it's all good. The bed was a little firm for our liking, but the pillows were definitely huge. Actually maybe a little too fluffy lol. The location is really good, still in Pigeon Forge but at the end so not sooo busy, and a lot closer to get to Gatlinburg. The bathroom was a little outdated, but I loved it nonetheless. It reminded me of the house I grew up in haha. Anyway, I would stay here again, and recommend it. It's good for the price.
