We just got married so went to Pigeon Forge for our honeymoon. We stayed 2 nights in the two bedroom suite (also with two separate bathrooms, so no waiting on each other!) with Jacuzzi. Each room has it's own separate unit to heat and cool the room with. It's located on the backside of the hotel near an alleyway, so it was pretty peaceful. There was, however an odd humming sound that randomly shut off and on every 15 to 20 minutes or so somewhere above our room. It's a ground floor room, but despite the humming sound (which wasn't much of a bother) it was a nice room. The Jacuzzi just barely had enough hot water to fill it and we were still able to take hot showers afterwards, one of the (set of 3) ceiling lights in the back room wasn't working, but there was plenty of light regardless and I wouldn't have noticed if it hadn't been pointed out. The beds were VERY comfortable and clean. The room was cleaned daily. The continental breakfast is what I'd expect of a continental breakfast - a bit of cereal, doughnut, small muffin, juice and toast in a small kitchen that looks like an employee lounge with two tables, nothing special. The staff (special shout out to Carolina!) was VERY friendly. The hotel is between lights 6 and 7 and Dollywood lane is at light 8 so it's VERY close and it's on the parkway close to most everything. I originally decided to stay at this Inn based on the ratings stating how clean it was and how friendly the staff was. It's spring break week so we had a hard time finding a place, the only down side to this Inn is the price, it's not very competitive and I asked two different staff members if they offered a discount on our stay since we had Dollywood Gold season passes (some hotels do offer that), but never received a definite answer. Pricing seems to be something that's a bit confusing between what's there and what's listed on websites. The only other negative was one of the coffee makers needed a simple rinse off, but not bad. We don't drink coffee, so it wasn't an issue. They do provide towels, shampoo, soap, coffee, plastic bathroom cups, a cube mini fridge (2 of them ,both were spotless), microwave (2 of them, both were also spotless), 2 flat screen TV's we had to request the second remote since you get them from the desk (there's no extra charge for the remotes or anything though), carpet is very clean, furniture (dresser and 2 night stands per room + 1 desk) were all very clean. One bathroom seemed to have a newer design than the other, Jacuzzi was clean, ceilings over the showers had very slight water damage but that's probably just due to the continuous ceiling type covering the whole room- it's an old popcorn style ceiling. All in all, we would happily stay here again. Just wish the rates were a bit better.
