"Vacation for kids"
July 2015
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.

Even though they were in the middle of renovations, this was a great place to stay. Very inviting, great atmosphere. You could see through all the renovations still going on, that they are making it even more comfortable for their guests. The indoor pool was closed, but the outdoor pool was open. There was an outdoor seating with rocking chairs around an outdoor firepit. Beds were comfortable, rooms were updated, Breakfast was good, the staff that we had contact with were all very welcoming. The next time the family wants to have a weekend getaway, this will be on the priority list for accommodations.

This was our first trip to Pigeon Forge. We could not have picked a better place to stay. The people, especially the front desk staff, the rooms, the night time amenities are second to none. We look forward to our next trip to Pigeon Forge and there is no question where we will stay.

"Hidden perk"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 29, 2020
Our stay was a gift on our honeymoon and was a neat perk. So there was some construction during our stay, but the noise was not an issue and the hotel and construction crew were helpful/accommodating. This is a hotel that if you blink you will miss it on the main road, but it was a great access point to the Pigeon Forge area and Gatling. There was also a Kroger and Publix not terribly far by walking. It was a convenient base point.
