Stayed here in Oct, 2016. We go to Gatlinburg in Oct every year for a few days. First time staying at the Clarion. Chose it for the location on the Parkway. Spacious room with a fireplace and Jacuzzi but in need of a makeover.

I was with the football team that the previous poster was complaining about. Our players had a 10:00 curfew every night and the parents made sure they were in bed, so I don't know what they were talking about. It's hard to cater to a large group and the staff of The Clarion did an excellent job. They were always...

This was our second and last stay here. We arrived on Saturday Nov 19th for six nights. There was lots of kids there with there parents. Neither the hotel or the parents tried to keep the kids under control. They ran the halls screaming, slamming doors, etc. This went on the first night. It stopped around 11pm. The kids were...

When we walked into the hotel, the front lobby was not bad, very welcoming, but then you get on the elevator, and it goes down from there. The hotel is old and needs updating, but if full of lady and stink bugs. Our room was infested with them, So we had to deal with the bugs, mold and no power...

The front desk staff is great and very helpful. They were the only exceptional part of our visit. We walked to our room down a hallway so overloaded with the smell of cleaners it would make you gag. We went to our room which although the sheets were clean, the carpet had stains, the wallpaper was peeling, and we counted...

We booked a room on a Friday in October, so we expected to pay a little more. The room was a total of $240.83 and we were charged a "Hotel Services Fee" of $15.00. The hotel was situated at the end of the main Gatlinburg drag so it was very convenient. Parking isn't very available so that was a big...

I stayed at the Clarion for 5 nights while attending a trade convention. At best this is a 2.5 star hotel - nothing more. I like to work out while traveling and while they list a 'fitness' facility on their website, I was told at the front desk that the owner ordered replacement parts for the treadmill 5 years ago....
