“Wonderful hotel & staff”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 April 2012

We spent only 2 nights and this hotel but had a wonderful experience. We have visited this area many times over the years and I have to say this would be one of the best hotels I have stayed at in the area. The staff was very friendly. My children loved the indoor pool and outdoor waterslide. Bonus was the free full breakfast and meet & greet each night with popcorn, baked cookies and lemonade. Something I also took advantage of was the massage chair & iced tea. I also won a prize they were giving away during our weekend! We will definately stay here again when we come back to the area which will be soon since we have Dollywood season passes.

This was our first time to stay at the Clarion Inn in Pigeon Forge. Wow-this hotel offers so many extras that other hotels do not have! Our room was very roomy. The king bed was comfy with a great assortment of pillows. We stayed very cool with the great AC and even a ceiling fan over our bed. We had a large flat screen tv, refrigerator, microwave, safe, and a sitting area with a comfy couch and table and chairs. We only stayed there 2 nights, but we could have spent a week there. The room was very clean, and the linens were a great quality. The bathroom was great. My only suggestion is that the tub needs something for traction. It got a little slippery, after using shampoo and cream rinse- but there was a grab bar to hold onto.
The pool area was a mini-waterpark! There is a lazy river, a large water slide, an indoor pool, a hot tub outside and one inside, and even a splash pad for little kids! At night it was fun to sit out by the gas fire pit-and the pool had a nice lighting. The complimentary hot breakfast is the best I've ever found. There is someone who cooked made to order omlets, pancakes, and waffles. On the buffet were hot scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy, bacon, sausage, Krispry Kreme donuts, bagels, toast, french toast, cereal, juice, fresh fruit, great coffee........Who needs to go to one of those expensive Pancake Houses? (or stay at a hotel where you are charged $10 pp for the same wonderful breakfast) On busy weekends the tables get full around 9:00, but folks don't mind taking their plates out in the lobby or back to their room. The lobby has such comfy furniture-everyone just makes themselves at home. And if you want to play the piano, there is an electronic one in the lobby. My hubby enjoyed the massage chairs-another thing I have never seen in a hotel!
I would highly recommend this hotel to anyone, especially if you have children! Kudos to the friendly staff! We really enjoyed this nice new hotel!

Room Tip: We had a great view on the 6th floor, but if you don't like heights-request one on a lower level...

We so appreciate your comments and now it seems like we do have it all. The Spa on the third floor is now OPEN and I have been waiting to tell you. Look forward to your next visit and to also see the brand new massage chairs which were an update recently.

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.
