Our family stayed at this hotel last summer and Scott Ellis and his staff were terrific! In fact I called Scott personally to tell him that my son and I are headed that way over spring break and wanted to make sure we stayed at this very nice hotel again.

It is always nice to see family come back and stay with us. We always like sharing new surprises keeping with our theme "something new, something different" with every time a guest stays they will find something new. Our newest item is our pancake machine that gives guests fresh, hot pancakes every morning. We have also created a new lower rate for our rollaway bed rentals. Instead of paying $25/night, our guests will now be charged a lower $15/night per rollaway fee with only 1 to a room please. It has been changed in our reservations system and cannot be waived. We look forward to seeing you during your next stay.

I can not say much more positive than what other reviewers have said. Believe everything good you have read. What I can add is that this is one of the cleanest most well kept hotels I have stayed at anywhere at any price. You can not go wrong staying here.

Thank you for the compliments. Some of the many reasons we are the best is all of the extras we give you at no extra cost such as concierge services offering our guests an array of discounts and money-saving coupons, our free massage chairs, our daily meet and greet with the freshly-baked cookies & popcorn, free wireless internet, free parking, and the full hot breakfast buffet. Thank you for staying with us at the Clarion Inn in Pigeon Forge.

We just spent 4 nights of our spring break in the Clarion Inn. We were enthusiastically greeted and invited to the hotel's meet and greet with cookies, popcorn, cappuccino, and lemonade. We enjoyed the free full breakfast every morning. The hotel was very clean and all the staff were very friendly and helpful. We especially enjoyed the heated pools and hot tubs. It was great to be able to swim late if we wished. The pools staying open until 2:00 a.m. was surprising and well-liked. The general manager, Scott, was very friendly and accommodating. We had never stayed in this hotel before, but if we are in the area again, we will definitely stay at Clarion. We would recommend this hotel to anyone.

Thank you for the kind words. The hotel owners designed the hotel to provide something new and something different with that said the extended pool hours until 2:00am are an example of this conceptual thinking. And with the hotel being energy efficient the savings can be put back into the hotel with the full breakfast & the meet and greet cookie hour. Our cookies are in fact so popular we have occassionally ran out so instead we may offer Krispy Kreme donuts. Thank you for staying and we welcome you to stay with us again if you are in the Pigeon Forge area.

This is the hotel in Pigeon Forge we will be staying at in the future. The entire hotel was very clean, the service was friendly and my daughter loved the pool area. The outside pool area has a hot tub, a fire pit, a heated water slide and a heated small lazy river. The inside was great too! The pool had a baskeball hoop and target to throw footballs at, not to mention another hot tub too. They also had a great breakfast spread. Doughnuts, fruit, eggs, bacon, sausage, make your own waffles and someone on hand to make a personalized omlet. This was the perfect start to a great Sring Break!! I highly recommed this hotel.

Thank you for the wonderful compliments. Our guests love the full breakfast buffet especially since it is part of your room rate. We recently added pancakes to the buffet with great success. With all of our free amenities our intent is that our guests leave and can't wait to come back! Thank you for staying at the Clarion Inn in Pigeon Forge,

This was our first stay in this hotel, but definitely not our last. The hotel was very clean, and the beds were comfortable. The hotel is family friendly with a cookie and lemonade meet and greet in the evenings, and Ipads with games in the lobby. The hot tub and pool area was also very clean and laid out in a way that the kids can be in one while parents are in the other and can still see the kids. My kids asked to stay there again soon.

Room Tip: Choose a room overlooking the parkway, you can watch the horse carriage rides come through the parki...

We appreciate your compliments. The hotel is centrally located in the heart of Pigeon Forge in Walden's Landing. Our guests can walk across our parking area to see a new release movie at the Forge Cinemas(be sure to buy your Super Saver tickets here), five restaurants, two 18-hole miniature golf courses, an interactive attraction The Tomb, or shop in several unique retail shops. We are also near to MagiQuest a live action adventure game featuring princesses, a wizard, and a lot of fun. Participants earn powers as they gain skills in the kingdom, it's family fun for all ages. With so much to do and see guests may want to stay a few days to enjoy it all. Call early for reservations as we do sell out quickly. Thank you for staying at the Clarion Inn in Pigeon Forge.

Our family has used this hotel multiple times. It has quickly become our first choice of hotels. The rooms and pool area are always clean. The beds and pillows yield a comfortable sleep. The staff is friendly and eager to help. Scott, the general manager, was very personable and sensitive to insure our stay was more than pleasant. Overall, he makes sure you want to come back again. And we will!!

Thank you! We are always happy to welcome back repeat guests, new ones are great too. Myself and the entire staff want every guest to feel at home when they stay with us. We serve a full hot country breakfast then we end your day with fresh-baked cookies & popcorn with a lot of Southern hospitality throughout. Our guests receive many special discounts for area attractions that we do not mark up to benefit from, we would rather pass that savings directly to the guests. Thank you for staying and we look forward to your next stay.
