"Vacation for kids"

We took a quick vacation and decided to try this hotel based on positive ratings. We were pleased with our stay. Very friendly staff. Clean without normal musky hotel smell.

"Spring Break 2015"
April 2015
I was pleasantly surprised with the hotel. It was clean, and the staff were amazing. Had some issues with our keys but the front desk was there to help. Loved the nightly popcorn. Disppointed that the outside pool was not heated because the inside pool was packed with young kids and our older kids could not enjoy the pool or hot tub.

Tip: Spring Break is super busy and you will need extra time to get around. Hotel is close enough to walk to get food.

"nice quiet stay"

Older but nice and being renovated. Comfortable small rooms, good linens, good beds and friendly accommodating staff throughout. We stayed in a riverside room with balcony and watched the birds catch breakfast and enjoyed the river and good weather. if you are going to Pigeon Forge on vacation, Im sure you’ll appreciate the location. it is right on the Parkway, which means traffic and noise. In our room, however, we didn’t hear much. There is a small indoor pool. it could use an update and the tile scrubbed but it was otherwise clean and warm. there are several restaurants within walking distance and a paved walk/bike trail across the river. All in all a fine choice.

An amazing stay. Beginning with Jeremiah making it possible when we couldn't arrive in December due to grandchild sickness. Then Heather working with my family to set up this stay. Katie so pleasant at check in, as well as upgrading us to river side. John and Sara's for being so friendly while we enjoyed the great buttered popcorn each evening. The kitchen staff had a good hot breakfast for us each morning and the cleaning folks kept our room as well as the rest of the hotel very clean. This is our go to place to stay when we are in Pigeon Forge. We feel like you all are extended family. I'm making this to honor Bruce who we missed. God bless all, Dale
