very nice stay

My wife and I very much enjoyed our overnight stay at the Vacation Lodge. It was not a fancy place nor did it come with an expensive price tag. Clean and adequate for anyone's needs! Nice breakfast included. After having dinner at our favorite getaway, the Applewood Farm House we kicked back and had a very relaxing quiet evening. Thanks for a good clean basic lodge. Terry

NOT CLEAN!!!

This hotel was Dirty the pool was so bad I only got in the once there was scum (like soap scum) at the top of the water line but this scum was brown and there was so much of it that kids was scratching there name in it. The fridge in the room had 3 to 4 inches of ice on the freezer it would not keep things cold because it was in need of defrosting BAD. could not get fresh towels the last night we stayed we asked the staff 3 times for towels and my husband finely had to go to the front desk to get fresh towels. the first thing you see comming into the room is an ink stain on 1 arm of the couch and a rip on the other arm. scum in the bottom of the tub and the toilet ran all the time. would not reccommend this place unless you don't worry about catching something or you like a dirty place

Good end to a bad start

When we arrived, our booking had been filed in July instead of June. The room that was supposed to have been ours had already been given to someone else. The mgr could not have been nicer. He gave us a suite for the first night, but since it was reserved for the second night, he would place us in another room. I asked what he would charge us for another suite instead of just a room and he let us have a suite for just $40. The suites usually rent for $150. By being in a suite, our car was in the garage.

Fantastic Stay for a Couple

The hotel was very clean. The bed was comfortable and we were comfortable knowing our car was in a garage. The pool was kind of small to have more than two families swimming. We were expected that extra something for the suite but were overall satisfied with our stay. The breakfast was nice and hot the next morning. Lovely little getaway.

Pidgeon Forge hotel stay unsatisfactory

Very dirty, 2nd floor, no elevator, little parking (disabled), and inquiries answered with, "That's what you get for booking online!"
