“Convenient location, great for families”
Reviewed 10 July 2014

We had a great experience at this hotel. The room was spacious and clean, the staff were friendly and the kids loved the pool, waterslide & lazy river. There's a tasty Mexican restaurant as well as a yummy brewing company restaurant within steps of the hotel; we enjoyed both. Our only issue was with breakfast...it was an absolute madhouse! It was wall to wall people and on one morning a group was playing the lobby piano and singing so loudly while someone from the Lumberjack show advertised his "magic" in the dining room. WAY too much for first thing in the morning, not to mention overflow seating is all the way down the hall and several items were gone by the time we came down to eat at 9am. The hotel has an omelet bar, but egg whites aren't an option (just a suggestion to the hotel for the diet conscious). However, we'd MOST DEFINITELY stay here again...another reviewer was spot on saying this property gets you out of the hustle and bustle that is Pigeon Forge.

We have two kids (19 & 25) and we had a great trip and stay in Pigeon Forge. The Clarion is very conveniently located. You can walk to a lot. The beds are really comfy after a long day of playing. I wish the walls had been a little thicker because there was hall noise and you could hear the people in the next rooms too. All and all not so bad though.The breakfast was amazing! Wasn't expecting so much for a "free" breakfast. They even had a nice gentleman cooking omelettes to order. Almost any kind of breakfast food you could want. Breakfast hours were great too. We are late risers so the 10:00 cut off time was awesome for us. They keep the tables cleaned and get anything you might need. Housekeeping did a great job everyday. We came back each afternoon to a well appointed room. The last night we were there I had to go down and get fresh towels because we showered early morning before going to white water rafting and had showered when we got back in the afternoon and we also wanted to shower before we checked out in the am. They gave me the extra towels with no problem. The front desk staff knew a lot about the area and were able to answer all of our questions. Lots a eating places close by from fast food to nice restaurants. The Harley shop is on the corner and a little bike bar across the street. Good food! You can walk to a movie too. Loved the balcony so much!! it was nice to go out and sit and just people watch late a night. The Free WIFI was such a wonderful thing too! We could catch up with friends and family at night. Great Stay! Will absolutely stay at the Clarion again!

Very pleased with this hotel. The rooms were spotless, the breakfast buffet was wonderful, and the service was outstanding. This hotel is located in a prime location. It's only minutes from all of the major attractions. The hotel also made it very easy to purchase tickets to attractions and offered many discounts. I highly recommend this hotel!

My Fiancé and I stayed for one night on the fourth of July weekend. We got a king room for an extremely reasonable price. I'm huge on cleanliness and we walked into the room incredibly impressed by the size of the room and how nice it was. I have to admit it was very nice to have a balcony as well. The fact the room had a keurig made me love the trip more. The breakfast was like a four course meal and was very delicious. I must say that my Fiancé and I will be returning and most likely book the same type of room. Best hotel I've been too in a long time.

We stayed 6 nights in June with our 7 year old grandson. The hotel was perfect for us - clean, roomy, well equipped, good breakfast (made to order omelets, fresh fruit cups, plenty of variety), great indoor and outdoor pools with a lazy river and slide. Within easy walking distance of restaurants, miniature golf, and cinema. Hotel staff was very helpful and gave us tips on riding the trolley to and from Dollywood - saved us money and time! We really enjoyed the small balcony - but did have to close the door occasionally when smokers would gather in the "smoking" area outside the entrance to the Inn and the breeze would blow the smoke into our room, if staying again I would ask for a room farther from the entrance area. We had a great time in Pigeon Forge and the Clarion Inn was a wonderful place to stay. If you're looking for a family-oriented hotel at a reasonable price - you'll find it at the Clarion Inn!!

Room Tip: Rooms with balconies over the hotel entrance may get smoke from the "smokers area". Rooms...

We stayed one night. Room was very clean! Nice to have a kuerig in the room, and stool for little kids. Breakfast was great!!!! Only con for me was that we stayed in an economy room (first floor) and guests would leave the side entrance door propped open with a towel. You were supposed to need a key to enter but left open anyone could enter. Not a big deal but kind of bothered me. Overall fair price for the room.

We stayed here for three nights. Monday June 30 to Thursday July 3. There is so much to say about this this hotel I don't know where to start. This place is amazing the rooms are great super clean and the beds are comfortable. We felt welcomed from check in the staff is super friendly and very helpful. When we checked in their was a smell in our room I called the front desk and asked for some air spray. We'll they came up and switched our room immediately because they wanted to deep clean the room to get rid of the smell. Instead of just passing the room on t someone else they wanted to make sure the took care of it. This says a lot about the staff and how they take pride in keeping up the property and making sure their guests are taking care of. My son enjoyed the pool and we met a lot of great people. We are now hooked on this hotel and will be back again. We usually stay in cabins but decided not to because we wanted a pool for our son. Pigeon forge is a trip we take yearly and we look forward to staying here next year.
