"Decent hotel"
July 2019
Great location, right in the middle of everything in Pigeon Forge. The standard double queen bed room we stayed in was a decent size, but the bathroom was tiny.

"Disappointed"
August 2016
They advertised WiFi which basically only worked in our room sporadically. I am mean basically hardly at all. The pool was disgustingly gross. My kids said it was oily with hair all in it. The breakfast was eatble but eggs and sausage were not very appetizing.No fruit choices. Most of the staff was accommodating with the exception a rude night shift clerk Laura who hung up on me when I complained about the WiFi not working. I wouldn't stay there again.

"Clean and Convenient"
August 2016
This was our first time at Island Drive Lodge. It was clean and very convenient. We were able to walk to Paula Deans and the Island,also to other shops and the Dixie Stampede and did not have to worry about parking. Nothing fancy, but it serves the purpose

"Nothing to brag about but ok"
July 2016
We had 4 people in our room. We had to go to the front desk every evening and ask for a fourth towel. so everyone would have a clean towel for showers. Then my daughter left her teddy bear in the room when we checked out. Took us 4 calls to them after we got home to get answer if they had found it. They finally said yes. But it's been 2 weeks and just heard from someone to mail it to us for $14.

Tip: It's an ok hotel if you just want to have somewhere to sleep. That's all we did.

We visited pigeon forge 1 night before checking into Gatlinburg for the remainder of our trip. We stayed here in room 215 and our room was clean and comfortable. Didn’t see no bugs of any kind. Front desk ladies were very nice at check in. The only negative thing I can think of was the toilet in our room ran and made noises all day and night. But wasn’t enough to really bother us I just closed the door. The breakfast they serve was good. We also loved the fire pit out front with view of the parkway that was a nice touch!

"UNBELIEVABLE"

Reviewed November 04, 2019 NEW
We stayed 4 nights toward the end of October. Within 24 hours of getting home, I realized I had left all my folded clothes in the top two drawers in the room. After 3 days of callling, the manager, Tyler, returned my call and said there were no clothes left in the room. I told him the clothes couldn't have disappeared and someone from the hotel had to have taken them. He became defensive and hung up on me! It really surprises me the lack of empathy or lack of responsibily that he felt. I would NEVER recommend this hotel because obviously their guests are not a priority. It's pretty sad you can't trust anyone.

"Bed bug stains and drugs under the mattress!!"
TripAdvisor user rating 1 out of 5
Reviewed October 25, 2019 NEW
PLEASE READ! My husband and another couple came to Tennessee for the Craftsman fair yesterday &Booked this motel in pigeon Forge Tennessee! My husband is an exterminator and we always check the mattresses for bed bugs! This place was once eat up and found stains ALL over the mattress with a Kroger bag that contained a spoon, lighter, baking soda, and stuff to make meth!! We immediately ask for our money back and Stacey who works the front desk, told us that she would call “Tylor” the manager. He called his exterminator who CONFIRMED the stains but still refuse our money back because “we didnt find live bed bugs”! Who would want to sleep with bed bug stains!? I am just extremely disappointed! We did get an amazing room at Margaritaville! Please don’t take your family and children here. This place needs shut down.take

We couldn't get a room where we usually stay so we decided to go with Island Drive Lodge. I booked it online and booked a ADA (handicapped accessible) room. This is very misleading, they put us in room 144 and it definitely IS NOT ADA! No grab bars what so ever in the shower. We ask for a shower chair and as you can see in the picture it wasn't safe at all either! Won't be coming back here!

This was our first stay. Stacy checked us in and what a hoot she was! We laughed so hard checking in. The room was very clean. Bed was comfortable. We got to the breakfast room just before it was time to end. The Hostess was gracious enough to let us still have breakfast and not feel rushed. It was very good. Parking was a little tough and I feel like it needs more than one entrance to the rooms. Would we stay again? Recommend it? Absolutely!!!
