Vacation Lodge is old needs remodeling. Very poor and outdated rooms, several repairs need attention. No handles in shower, for assistance. Breakfast was horrible.

"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!

"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.

We stay here twice a year. Always clean. Friendly service. This past visit however, we ran into rude staff. The clerk at the desk upon arrival was not welcoming at all. Was told our room wasn't ready. Then the housekeeper spoke up and said yes, it was. The room was dirty, smelled bad. We asked you before moved, told there were none available. My husband insisted, so she reluctantly moved us ( there were plenty of rooms, only about 5 rooms being used that night). During the week we had to chase down clean towels, often going through 2-3 people before finding the right person who handled the linens,instead of them just sending linens to our room. Like I said we stay here twice year and send everyone we know here because its clean, affordable and friendly staff. We will most likely be checking out other lodging choices next visit.

"Pigeon Forge / Smoky Mountain Vacation"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed November 30, 2019
My six night stay at Vacation Lodge was very enjoyable... I wanted something clean and comfortable, that fit within my budget, on the strip, in the center of everything, within walking distance to shops and restaurants, and Vacation Lodge did not disappoint... Housekeeping was very friendly and provided plenty of towels and washcloths, and I was always offered extra toiletries. In fact, all of the staff was very friendly... I was able to view a couple of the newly updated rooms, and I'm looking forward to staying in one of them during my next trip to the Smokey Mountains... Thank you for your hospitality Vacation Lodge.... ( If only I could have stayed another week or two, OR even three or four)

I recently booked two rooms here for a one night stay. Everyone we came into contact with was nice and both rooms were clean! They do have breakfast that is included in with the total of your stay. Breakfast was biscuits, gravy, eggs, bagels, 2 different types of cereal, oatmeal, juice, and milk. The breakfast area was also clean and the food was good. We enjoyed our stay and we will be back!

The rooms are represented well in the pictures on trip advisor. Clean. The place is older, but you can tell they are updating. The breakfast is not represented well. Toaster oven for bagels, no utensil to remove bagels. No toaster. Coffee not good. Breakfast area small and crowded. Not supplied well. Needs to improve breakfast in general.
