"Was just enough"
April 2019
The rooms was clean, beds comfortable. Location was excellent! Didn’t eat the breakfast so no comment there. Pool was average, needed to have towels there or notice of no towels at pool area to save a wet run to the room!

Tip: Was a nice place away from home to lay your head after hours of wandering around!

"Location, Location LOcation."
April 2019
This was an ideal location to see and experience all that Pigeon Forge has to offer. One drive down to road and there was so much to choose from, you couldn't do it all in a week if you tried.. . Weather was cool but great for sightseeing. And it was a perfect location at Vacation Lodge to view the choices. Love to go back and hit the shopping places. We felt the lodging was great. Price was phenomenal, breakfast good, just there for the bed and it was comfortable.

Tip: Check out times of dinner theaters so you can plan your day to get there on time. And possibly take a quick nap before you go to the show.

"Much nicer than Expected"
March 2019
This place was good overall, and GREAT for a cheap motel. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly, the biscuits at breakfast were yummy, and we absolutely could not beat the price. The location is hard to beat in terms of access to all the attractions and restaurants. For anyone looking to go cheap on lodging so that they can visit more attractions in Pigeon Forge, this is the place to stay.

Edited to add: The parking lot is well lit and I felt safe staying here with my 5-year-old. This isn't a five-star hotel, but the costs cut are on frills, not maintenance, cleanliness, or safety.

Tip: You're right on the strip, so the traffic noise is pretty loud. On the other hand, you're RIGHT ON THE STRIP, with a trolley stop in the parking lot. The location is amazing.

The stay was great it was just the motorcycles that parked in the parking garage roaring their engines and being super loud at 7am! They should be able to park outside that way it won’t be so loud and more cars could park in the garage

"Good location, money-saver"
TripAdvisor user rating 3 out of 5

Well, now I understand why the motel doesn't have a picture of it from the street. It's a veteran sort of lodging place that may date back to the 1970s and all the rooms face the Pigeon Forge main drag. That said, the price was great, the rooms were clean enough, it wasn't noisy, the front desk person was friendly and helpful, you're right across from the Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge trolley (bus) service, just minutes to the island, restaurants, entertainment and food in every direction. Listen, THE PRICE WAS GREAT and we weren't disappointed. They met all their advertised promises. Only downside: Breakfast is about as basic and bland as you'll ever find, but, the PRICE was GREAT! You'll save more than enough to eat at some fancy place. If saving money is your goal, go for it. Everyone likes bargains, right?

It was a GREAT price! The rooms were clean and the staff were all friendly. Was it the Hilton? No; but for less than 1/3 the price, it’s definitely worth it! Plus, it allowed us to spend more money on fun stuff like eating out, shopping, and, seeing the sights.
