“Great value.”
Reviewed 1 June 2014

Booked this hotel thru Expedia. Wasn't sure what to expect. Was impressed by room size exactly as requested. Although pool was advertised as heated it wasn't. Breakfast wasnt served until 8 am and we wanted to get early start so that was a disadvantage. We did sleep in 1 morning until after 8 am and was disappointed by the lack of food. Everyone must have ate at 8am. Otherwise was an excellent motel!

Thank you for writing a review for Vacation Lodge. Our breakfast hours are on average to other hotels. i'm sorry there wasn't much food when you went to breakfast, it should have been replenished to suit people's needs. Our pool is heated to 85 degrees. If it wasn't heated at the time you was staying with us we could have been having maintenance issues at the time which are out of our control, and I'm sure was trying to be fixed in a timely matter. Please give us a chance to make you happy in the near future by staying with us again.

Very good experience in an older motel. It was very clean and the staff helpful and friendly. Very good FREE hot breakfast. Excellent location close to restaurants and attractions. We would stay there again.

Room Tip: Suite rooms with king size bed are the best option.

Recently I stayed with my family at The Vacation Lodge in Pigeon Forge, Tn. We have excellent service, our room was clean and the beds were breath taking.......we had breakfast there every morning and the staff was excellent. We had no complaints and highly recommend this hotel for your stay in Pigeon Forge, TN. We will be visiting again in August or September.

Room Tip: great location, friendly staff, close to everything in Pigeon Forge with access to the trolley for t...

Just returned from a 2 night stay with a family of 4. We went to Pigeon Forge to visit Dollywood/Splash Country. Considering what we paid for this hotel, I couldn't have asked for more. The free breakfast was great. Biscuits, gravy, eggs, etc. The room was clean. They actually provided enough towels for everyone. The pool was great for my kids. It was also clean. The air in our room didn't seem to be working well when we first got there but made a call to the front desk and someone was there within 5 min to fix it and never had a problem again. The beds were surprisingly comfortable. If you are looking for a clean, family friendly, affordable place to stay, this is your place. I am really glad I chose this place. We had a great time. My only complaint would be the shower--it's really hard to get the water at a comfortable temp. Just a small move right or left and it's either freezing cold or piping hot. We had to move it in centimeters, literally, but we figured it out! The rooms have 2 doors. One to get in the room and another that lead to a balcony. Our balcony was shared with the room next to us but we never encountered another guest on our balcony. It was a really nice addition to the room.

Room Tip: We stayed in room 212 which was right in the middle of the breakfast room and pool area. Our balcony...

Not the fanciest, Not the newest, Not largest, but if you want a place that won't break the bank and honestly cares about the guests and their comfort, don't pass this up. The beds are as good or better then many places we have stayed (Marriott to Hilton and more) the bathrooms are small, but clean and well stocked. A balcony lets you sit outside without leaving the comfort of your room. The hotel is located in the center of Pigeon Forge across for the Old Mill and Patriot Square and gives you access to everything with no more then a 5 min trip. Loved it ! !

Room Tip: Second floor is best

Arrived late (after midnight) on a Saturday. No problem. When we got there, check-in was a breeze. Don't even think I was in there five minutes. They already had our papers ready to go. Show card and driver's license, sign the form and we were out of there.

There was plenty of parking and we got a room on the ground level, which made unloading a breeze.

I thought room smelled like smoke and I checked non-smoking on my hotels.com form, but some febreeze took care of it.

TV was of the old box design and not a flatscreen, but at least it came with a paper in-room channel guide as well as one with a guide button (got neither at not available at a much pricier hotel we stayed at the next night).

Water pressure in the shower was nice, but just the slightest turn changed it from scolding hot-wam-cool. Liked the double sink when getting ready.

Breakfast was available (something else not available at a much pricier hotel we stayed at the next night), but we declined because we like eating at places we can't get at home.

Checkout was a breeze.

The best part was the room, after third-party booking, fees and taxes, was still less than $50 total for a two-person queen on a Saturday night. Great bargain!

Room Tip: If you're on the ground level, you should be able to park directly in front of your room, which...
