“AWESOME!!!!”
Reviewed 3 April 2012

We stopped in on a road trip and checked this place out. The manager showed us around and showed us a room. He was very professional and personable. We fell in love with the GREAT rooms and loved the awesome ammenities. We will stay here again! The rooms were very modern and SUPER clean. I wrote a review last year but couldn't find it so I wanted to repost.

We stayed at the Clarion in Pigeon Forge and it is by far the BEST hotel in the Smokies! They have thought of every little touch you could imagine. The pools were open in April and they are heated. Indoor and outdoor. A large slide for kids and adults was a great touch. The lazy river was great and the indoor pool had basketball and football. There was pleanty of tables and lounge chairs. Jacuzzi's were very large and perfectly heated. There is a firepit you can see from the outdoor jacuzzi. The meet and greet was super nice. They had popcorn, doughnuts and lemonaid. There are several books in the lobby to read and a large TV. The UK/Kansas game was on when we got back to the hotel and several patrons were watching and cheering. Very nice. There is a piano in the lobby and one of the ladies staying there played it during hte meet and greet. Rooms were super clean and the balcony was great. Its close enough to see the action in Pigeon Forge but far enough away to keep out the noise. There is a nice cinema and shopping center very close. Calhoun's and No Way Jose's is right infront of the hotel as well. All the staff was supper friendly and made us feel right at home. If you are really wanting a place that has it all, look no further than the Clarion! Book directly at their site and save $$.

Room Tip: There couldn't be a bad room anywhere at this hotel!

We appreciate the wonderful compliments. Our location is ideal in Walden's Landing where you can walk to the cinema(purchase your Super Saver movie tickets at the front desk), five restaurants, buy souvenirs at unique retail shops, play some putt-putt golf or tour the interactive attraction The Tomb. Also nearby is Magiquest and The Track with both places offering plenty of family fun. We offer many outstanding discounts to area shows, restaurants and shopping. Thank you for staying!

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...

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.
