In need of update and repair

Checked into hotel after long drive from Milwaukee with my 3 kids. Hotel desk staff was unfriendly at check in. The room had not been redecorated in what I would estimate to be 30 years and the linens matched the time period. the room was clean, but carpet and furniture was worn out. Ice machine required quarters for one bucket of ice, could be a problem late at night for those not planning ahead. The hotel did have free wireless that worked well and the maid staff was very pleasent. Pool area was small and towels needed to be brought from room.

nice location

vacation lodge at pigeon forge was in close proximity to a wide variety of restaurants, attractions and shows! just minutes to gatlinburg and dollywood. beds were a bit stiff, but other than that, it was a good choice for the price.

Would recommend

My wife and I stayed there for our honeymoon. We found it to be a rather quiet and nice hotel to stay in. It has a great location in the middle of Pigeon Forge, within a few blocks from pretty much anything you'd like to do. It's also only about 10 minutes from downtown Gatlinburg. The pool was clean and well maintained the whole time we were there. I'd recommend this hotel to anyone wanting to stay in the area.

Great Location

This hotel was a great price for the location. I was traveling with my wife and two little girls. We were there mainly to go to Dollywood so we did not spend that much time in the hotel. The beds were comfortable and the room was clean. It is right on the strip in Pigeon Forge so if you wanted to walk around to some shops it is in a wonderful location.

King suites are great but the amenities will cost you.

King suites have 2 flat panel TV's, king size bed with gas fireplace, a very nice arrangment. The hotel is in a great location, right in the middle of the Pigeon Forge Strip. However the hotel has decided to make up for the rates, at least to some degree by not providing shampoo, conditioner, shower caps, etc. In fact all that you get are towels and soap. The ice machines also are $.25 per bucket of ice. One last item, there apparently are not Do Not Disturb signs available for the rooms as not were in the room and the maid referred me to the office to see if they were available.

everything the hotel stated in it's own review was true

the hotel was clean and comfortable. it is well placed in the strip of pigeon forge, tn. there are also several enterences from the main road which was very nice because the strip is very busy. the room had ample room and storage. loved the shower as it had lots of water pressure. the table and two chairs were something we used quite often. we would stay there again.
