Thank you for your review. Any time you have a problem at a hotel, you should always contact the front desk and make them aware of the situation. This allows the staff a chance to adjust the problem. Our pool is maintained regularly and our housekeeping staff work hard to keep everything nice and clean.

The Vacation Lodge was right on the main strip, great location for walking to places/things to do. The customer service was great. Jessica was a HUGE help when I was trying to check in early & Jenny was great as the housekeeper during my stay. Thumbs up!

This was the first time that we took our youngest to stay over night away from and it was wonderful. We travel with alarms because he tends to sneak off from us and go explore on his own. The staff was very understanding when they had set on off accidentally but they were completely understanding about it.

Thank you for writing a review for Vacation Lodge. Just to let you know that our beds were recently replaced less than a year ago with pillow top mattresses for your comfort. Also, housekeeping does their best to keep your room as clean as possible. If there was a issue with your room, you should always contact the front desk immediately so the issue can be addressed efficiently. Thank you for the compliment of our breakfast for the attendant works hard to maintain it during your visit.

We stayed here this passed weekend. I was very pleased with this motel. The outside was a little out dated, but the room we had was great. It was very clean and comfortable. The location was perfect. The price was excellent. The staff were very pleasant and very helpful. I would definitely stay here again.

We wanted to go to Dollywood and had no clue about the area. By going to the Dollywood website, you have a choice to get a package from different hotels that includes admission tickets and accommodations. I chose this because of the location, price and package deal. It was ok. It met our needs. The beds were comfy. Clean white linens, pillows, and white comforter. Tried breakfast once. Scrambled eggs, sausage gravy, biscuits, cold cereal, juice and I think coffee were all offered. Menu didn't change. They had no pepper the first day. Took our food back to the room to eat. I have to say the room was basically pretty clean. Bathroom was very clean. So were the table tops and sink. Coffee maker, microwave and fridge in the room. Fridge needs a good defrosting, but didn't bother us. We were in room 209. You park in the back and enter from the ground level, but you are on the 2nd floor with a balcony. We had to share the balcony and 4 chairs with the room that was connected to ours. Neighbors were very nice, so that was fine. Perfect view to see the fireworks from Dollywood. Wifi worked fine. Pool looked clean. Front desk was very friendly and helpful. All in all, this place was ok, but it definitely needs an update. The doors to the storage area (?) were open and what a mess! Maybe keep these closed since guests have to pass by them. Very dated rooms. Probably would not stay here again.

If you are looking for a clean comfortable room for a reasonable price, this is the place. You get a good hot breakfast and free WIFI. Location is fantastic, right on the strip. Can't ask for better!! We had a second floor room with ground access from behind due to terrain. It was great for us as we are seniors.
