Extremely convenient/Great breakfast

This hotel was extremely convenient to so many things and the hotel was clean and inviting. The breakfast was the best and well organized for the amount of people who stay there. I would stay there again.

Fun trip to Dollywood

The hotel is very clean and spacious. The pool is nice and the indoor area for the pool is great, very light and airy.Having the river in the back was a plus. We fed the ducks and geese both days we were there. Also, we saw a blue heron and a muskrat by the river.

Just Ok

Was a quick stop, but overall satisfactory stay. Very small rooms, had reserved a "pool view" room when booking and our room was not around the pool.

Check out the back of building, its great.

Backs up to river, with a walk path, ducks on water and feeding stations for your enjoyment. Clean room but small. Nice pool. Breakfast was good. Staff is very friendly. Close to shops on the parkway and trolley pickup. Will stay there again.

WOW!!!

I was pleasantly surprised to say the least!!! The room was very clean! The beds were soooo soft!!! Nice view of the river, we saw lots of ducks, cranes, and guinea and a fat lil ground hog lol. location was perfect so close to everything. lots of parking, fast &easy check in, the indoor pool was a wonderful amenity (since it was 41 degrees on the warmest day) and the kiddie pool was perfect for my 4 yr old. the hot tub was also pretty big and nice & hot. We will definitely be staying here when we come back to Pigeon Forge.

Quick break

Booked through O I got the same price as quoted by the hotel, no discount. I was in a room across from the supply room, not very good but I think this was a O get back. I have stayed at this hotel and other choice hotels for over 20 years, usually cost a little more than competition and never offered a free night. But it is still one of my favorite places.

Awesome Hotel!

With the nightly rate I paid for my room, I was expecting less than desirable conditions. This hotel proved me wrong! I was truly amazed at how clean and tidy the entire facility was. The staff was exceptional, the continental breakfast was FANTASTIC, and the room was comfortable. My check in/out experience was a breeze too and took less than 45 seconds each time. While the hotel was situated right in the middle of all of the fun and excitement of Pigeon Forge, the back side faced the river and provided an awesome contrast to the bustling city. They even had a duck feed dispenser so you could feed the ducks and geese which my 2-year old son loved! I have stayed in dozens of hotels over the years and this one is definitely provides the best value!

Short vacation

We were pleasantly surprised with the Econo Lodge. It was close enough to everything and very clean. Our only complaint was that our room was close to the laundry room and the house keepers were noisy first thing in the morning. Other than that it was great
