Awesome for a last minute booking (except...)

I put a quick get-away together for the family together with only a couple days to finalize it. I was worried we'd end up paying out 'the nose or staying in the Bates Motel. I was very surprised to find the Clarion at the rate that was available. Although it's a little more pricey than some places in Gatlinburg, it was worth it to me. Right at the far end of the strip, we were able to walk from our hotel down to all the great places we enjoy visiting when we're in Gatlinburg. The room was nice. The bed and bedding could have been better, but I've been spoiled by some very nice hotels around the world. The room had a great hot tub and we took advantage of it! The except parts when we walked in the hotel from the parking lot, one of the attendants was taking sheets from the dryer and used the fresh sheets to wipe his face after he'd been running around outside. I had mistook him for just enjoying the fresh from the dryer smell until my wife pointed out what he was doing. The other problem the elevator is horribly slow. We took the stairs quite often because we waited too long every time we cued the elevator. One time when we did get on, it took a weird route to the top floor then stopped on every floor on the way down. I would have figured some kids had pressed all the buttons, but none were lit and weird things like that happened to us and a few other guests a few times.

gatlinburg vacation

the hotel and location was great. The problem I had was that the Clarions walk in rate was $99.00 per night and the discount booking company charged me $119.00 per night. I thought the discount booking company had the best price. Very disappointed with the discount booking company will not book with them again.

One Night Stay

I booked a room with Clarion for one night to enjoy some hiking on a few Smokies trails. The experience was just what I needed - but nothing more. It was a good deal for a great location on the Parkway - near the west end, close to the road trails up into the mountains! Of all your options for rooms on the Parkway, Clarion should be considered - its more pricey than some of those cheap locations, but those look very sketchy - Clarion is at least a decent option that feels safe!

Sightseeing tip: Short drive from hotel

The best thing in Gatlinburg isn't on the Parkway - it's in the Smoky Mountains!

Good place

The hotel was in the prefect spot in gatlinburg. Walking distance to everything. The only complaint is the air conditioner in the living room wouldn't get cold so it felt like an oven but in the bedroom it was great!!! The view of the back of the hotel wasn't good. All you looked at was the parking lot. Everything else was wonderful

Great family escape

The hotel is clean, comfortable and well located. The thing I enjoyed most was the ability of parking the car and then either walk or take a trolley to different places. It's also at the end of the main strip and you can go to Pigeon Forge using the by-pass without having to go through town and it's right at the entrance to the Smokey Mtns Park.
