“Wonderful”
Reviewed 2 September 2014

I stayed here about 2 years ago for the weekend. It was wonderful. The rooms were top notch and the location was central to Dollywood and several places to eat, however I have two complaints. It's not within walking distance to many places, and the outdoor pool is considerable small. It's really just a landing area for the water slide. It's still a wonderful place to stay for a one night stay!

Dear maggyy_mayy, Thank you for taking the time to write a review. The hotel has been open for 4 years now and in my opinion it is just as nice and clean as it was on day 1. We have a wonderful staff that works very hard to keep up the appearance.

We visit Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg at least once every couple of months and we have stayed at different hotels but had a great time at the Clarion Inn. Beds were comfortable, nephew had a great time at the pool slide, awesome breakfast, we will definitely stay here again!

This is a wonderful place to stay. In the heart of Pigeon Forge and close to everything!
Friendly staff and clean rooms! Beds are very comfortable but the pillow are half size and not to my liking. I prefer normal sized pillows for a queen bed.

Dear FRANKSMITH843, Thank you for taking the time to post a review. Heads up on the pillows, they are full size the housekeepers just make them tight in the cases to make them look prettier, just shake them and they are full size. We hope to see you again very soon.

This hotel was so awesome! It was very inexpensive especially when you compare it to all the tourist attractions that seem so jacked up in price. The location was right in the middle of PF and you could even walk to a few restaurants (Smokey Mnt Brewery). The rooms were small but clean and had tons of perks (free wifi, fridge, microwave, etc). And every morning there was a huge help yourself breakfast...anything you could want. It was not 5 star quality food but still tasty! I could go on...I would absolutely stay here again!

Can't say enough praises about this hotel! It may not be as budget friendly as some others, however you definitely get your money's worth if you use the amenities. First of all rooms are spotless, comfortable, and spacious. In the lobby you are welcomed with a selection of coffee, tea, lemonade, fruit punch and water. Evening reception of popcorn and cookies. Breakfast is better than any hotel I have ever stayed at. Eggs, bacon, sausage, potatoes, biscuits, gravy, grits, French toast, waffles, made to order omelettes, plus the usual cereal, oatmeal, pastry, fruit, yogurt, coffee, juice, hot chocolate and cappuccino! If you can't find something to satisfy your hunger in the morning there's a problem! Can't wait til our next stay at the Clarion! Oh and the addition of the Keurig coffee in the rooms was the cherry on top! Definitely recommend to everyone!

Room Tip: Never gotten a bad room in the hotel, some have better views than others but equally as pleasant.

We stayed at the hotel August 20-23 and will definitely recommend this hotel to our family and friends! The rooms were very clean and the kids had a blast at the pool area/water slide. Plus they were excited every night to have popcorn and cookies! The breakfast in the morning was great! Couldn't ask for a more perfect place to stay!

First of all, let me start by first impressions, this place is awesome!

Centrally located in Pigeon Forge, the hotel is located next to just about everything.

The hotel was #1 on trip advisor, and I can not argue with that.

The property is new, rooms are very comfortable & QUITE .

They have 2 pools and hot tubes.
One pool is outdoor.

They offer a free breakfast, not a ordinary toast bar, but someone who makes custom omelets, a juice bar, coffee dispensers (different roast / strength ), a pastry bar, and not to mention a waffle station.

If you were to pay for the free breakfast, no joke, it would be well over $10-$12 per person.

The staff at the hotel are top notch southern people. One in particular was Regina, she worked at the front desk. If you speak to her about what to do, or were to go, Regina has you covered. Want show tickets, don't go to a box office, she can get them for less than what anyone charges & she offered combo packs for different nights, saved us about $10 per person, plus we didn't do anything but ask her to do it. Regina also told us good places to eat, weather pizza or steaks, she knew were to send us. She was someone who appreciated her job, and it showed!

There are " cheaper " rooms along the route, but for the service, location, and free parking, & great free breakfast, The clarion is the best value in my book.

Hopefully you will get up with Regina, she's a real class act!

Dear E-W-25601, So, what did you think of Regina? She is very knowledgeable about the area and a great asset to our staff. We do offer one of the best free breakfast buffets in the area along with several other amenities not readily available at other properties in the area. Thank you for the nice review, and we hope to see you again soon.
