We needed to find a place for the night, as our second home in TN lost power and water during the snowstorm a couple of days ago. The people at the desk could not have been more accommodating. They gave us a reasonable rate and told us if we did not need the room for the second night, a refund would be no problem. We found the room to be very clean, everything worked and the bathroom drains all worked properly, which doesn't always happen in all hotels! There was a very large vanity to place all of your toiletries. The room rate also included a hot breakfast and several other choices. The beds were comfortable. This is the second time we have stayed here. The first time is when we were having remodeling done and our home was uninhabitable. For a budget friendly hotel, I give it 5 stars in that category. If you are a tourist, it is in a very good location in Pigeon Forge. We will consider it again if the need arises and recommend it to others.

Clean. Staff was friendly. Room is a bit tight with the two built in closets. Hard to maneuver luggage racks to rooms where the indoor-pool is located due to multiple doors that you have to go through. There are multiple elevators, but only one has access to ramps, that I could find. I imagine the exterior rooms facing the river, or the rooms facing the Parkway, are more easily accessible. I would stay again, but not in any of the “atrium” style rooms (interior). Overall, not bad at all, but RM 241 was not ideal.

Tried to find decent rate and vacancy on recent business trip but not much to choose from. Knowing this wasn't a property with frills or amenities, still it was not very clean with weird stains on the floor, toilets that did not work and backed up, low lying shower head, mold in the ceiling and the whole property smelling like smoke. Just not a good place to stay.

I have stayed in this hotel before and was very disappointed in my last stay. The elevator was broken and had to carry all luggage up 2 flights of stairs. The room smelled like mold/wet and the air was damp. There were water stains in the dresser and it smelled horrible. When I told the front desk, the maintenance guy told me to turn on the heat to dry out the air. The room itself is outdated, and just dirty. Then I found prescription pills in the drawers, but the final straw was the cockroach in the room. Again, I went to the front desk and was told that they would just add that room to the list of rooms to be sprayed. Not an enjoyable experience for a family vacation, and not what I expect for $220.00 per night.
