"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.

"Misdirection Island Drive Lodge, Pigeon Forge, TN"
August 2015
The hotel is rather ran down and the pool is s joke, but the location is right on the main strip. However, my complaint is not on the hotel, rather how they conduct business with the local attractions. They sold me the wrong package to Dollywood, which is rather expensive. I could have thought this a simple mistake. This until, I went to the very same front desk where I bought said tickets. Of course by the end of the day there is a different customer service agent. She, Makayla, undoubtedly has the worst service I have ever experienced, even in a tourist town. She flat or told me, "All we do is take your money!", super professional, right? Then, she told me she can't help and gave me the number to the closed office that could assist. She only offered an apology upon my request. Next, she repeatably refused to get management upon my request. Lastly, she gave me two different numbers for a customer service or complaint line. She is rude, unprofessional, and lacks compassion for customers. I will be talking to management tomorrow and hopefully the owner of this establishment can straighten out the error with the tickets. I'm just trying to ensure my children have a good vacation.

Tip: Do not use this hotel, and certainly don't buy tickets for local attractions through the hotel, but only from the attraction itself.

Look at the attached photo of the view out our window. It says it all. Convenient location is the only plus. $110 per night with that view and a kicked in bathroom door. Straight from COPS. Trivago had it an 8.4

"The price says it all..."

Was worried about the price quoted on the phone when making reservations but reassured if we weren’t happy they would gladly refund us...don’t fall for that! Signs hanging in lobby “no refunds”! Was told they had no idea who told me that via telephone. After checking into first room and realizing the housekeeping was terrible, we were switched to another room that was a little better but still definitely a “low budget hotel”. You get what you pay for BUT this hotel could be nice with a little effort and LOTS of cleaning. Would not recommend and definitely would not return.

Keeping in mind the price you pay, the rooms are large enough, clean and everything works. (as in a/c) Location to the island is perfect. Nothing in Pigeon Forge is really "walking distance" close but the Island of Pigeon Forge is the exception. Would stay there again.

"Very satisfied "
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed June 24, 2019 NEW
We stayed for 3 days, 2 nights. Check in was fast and the staff was VERY friendly the entire time. The property is one of the older hotels but Our room was extremely clean and the bathroom had been redone and updated. It’s a shame to read some of these negative reviews about cleanliness because our room was spotless. My husband even lifted the mattress up and it was pretty much brand new. Speaking of the mattress, they are definitely on the firm side, so I can see where it would bother someone with back issues but it was fine for us. The pool was a little smaller than we would’ve liked, which means it became crowded quickly, but that wasn’t the hotels fault really. We didn’t eat breakfast there so I can’t speak to that. The location is right in the middle of the parkway downtown and within walking distance of so much (including the Island, which is right across the street) we could’ve spent all day Saturday doing stuff and never got in the car. The price, on the weekend, in the summer is half of the hotels around it and worth every penny in our opinion. We would stay again with no hesitation
