We stayed here over the weekend after the other hotel we reserved ended up being terrible (red roof inn). We called to see if they had any rooms and they advised they just had one open up (at 630pm on a sat). I reserved the room over phone till we could get there. The lady at front desk was very helpful. She advised in the meeting area they were having free drinks (lemonade, water), popcorn and snacks. The room was a double queen with a 32" flat screen tv. Beds were a little firm but ok. The room had a balcony with 2 chairs on it that you could see the strip. They also provide free breakfast. This is not your normal hotel breakfast. They had made to order omelets, pancakes, cereal, waffles, sausage, bacon, potatoes, biscuit and gravy and fruit. For a family this is a great way to save a lot of money. We enjoyed the breakfast. We can not wait to stay here again next year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room that is facing towards the strip.

Dear Allynbrian, I am sorry you had a bad experience at another hotel in Pigeon Forge, but we are certainly glad we could help make your visit a little better. I have to agree we do have the best free breakfast I have seen at any location I have stayed at, and it certainly saves a lot on the food budget when you travel with kids. We all hope to see you again on your next visit to the Smoky Mountains.

Our family of 3 stayed here for 4 nights for spring break. We decided this year we would try a new place and we were not disappointed!! We usually stay at the Econo Lodge on the river but wanted something new. The Clarion cost more but it was worth it. The rooms are bigger, quiet and comfortable. Breakfast was awesome with made to order omelets as well as everything thing else you can find at your typical breakfast buffet. The pooland hot tub were excellent. We will definitely return.

Thank you for taking time to write a review, and we are so glad you decided to give us a try. If you come back this summer please enjoy some complimentary snow cones poolside in the afternoon after a tiring day at Dollywood.

Stayed here several times. As usual, super clean, very nice staff, and great breakfast. Great location. Easy walking distance of lots of great places the kids like to go. The kids loved the complimentary lemonade and punch just out side the elevators on the first floor.

Room Tip: Kids love the 6th floor facing the strip. They can see MagiQuest and The Wheel at The Island.

My husband and I stayed on night 5-09-14, as a "Mom and Dad get away". This was our 3rd time staying here. No complaints at all, very clean and the decor is pleasing to the eye. Breakfast is wonderful! Staff is friendly. This is our "go to" place.
On a side note.....my husband surprised me with a beautiful diamond ring on this night, to celebrate our 20th wedding anniversary! Special memories!

Stayed at Clarion Inn 124 Waldens Main Street, Pigeon Forge, TN. for 5 nights while visiting the Smokey Mountains. Of all the Hotels I have ever stayed in this one is at the TOP of my list. All I can say is the folks who run this hotel have their act together. I found no faults and only have praise for the staff from check-in till check-out. Breakfast at this Inn was second to NONE. The evening popcorn and cookies were great every evening. The rooms were spotless and the pool area was heated and included two hot tubs and a lazy river. There was also an outdoor firering and lounge area outside in the pool area. The location of this facility was right in the heart of the city. Thanks Ya'll for making this Texans trip a great experience. Will stay here on future visits.

Room Tip: Stayed on the 4th floor all the way to one end. This was for the most part a quite area.

We had not been to the Smoky Mountains in over 30 years and had no idea of where to stay. I started looking at reviews on TripAdvisor and we chose this place. It turned out to be a very good choice. We loved the area and the mountains and want to go back. This is where we will stay the next time.
The good experience started as soon as we walked up to the front desk and was greeted by Cory. He was very nice, polite and took good care of us.
The room very comfortable, clean and quiet.
The next morning we were pleasantly surprised at the breakfast buffet. The breakfast choices were more than we had seen at any other place we have stayed. There was a wide variety of hot foods every morning as well as cold cereals, fruit, yogurt and juices.
If you stay, you definitely need to have one of the breakfast attendants cook you a fresh omelet. It was delicious! The attendants kept the food well stocked, even on the mornings when there were bus tours staying overnight. Kudos to management for having the foresight to have extra tables set up. There was always a place to sit. If you stay, you need to have one of the breakfast attendants fix you an omelet. It was delicious! The mornings that we were there, Donna, Mary Ann, Willie and Panchio took very good care of everyone. I would stay here again just for the breakfast!

My friend and I stayed here for 3 nights during a convention in Pigeon Forge. We had a wonderful experience with Clarion Inn Sevierville before and this one didn't disappoint either! The staff was exceptional, the location was great, and the breakfast was right on point! I don't have a bad thing to say about this place...Try It!

Room Tip: The back side of the hotel faces a parking lot and trees. No good views and trees can be in the way...
