Summer Vacation 2014

Dirty.Lime green wall in room. Ripped chair upholstery, I would not sit on it or set anything on it. I was afraid it might have bed bugs. Day two: chewed gum left in wrapper on dresser (two different pieces)Grotesque! Positive: the beds were very comfortable and breakfast was good.

Vacation getaway

The hotel was in an average location-near Dollywood (which we planned to go). Weather was extremely cold; however, trolly stop was just outside the hotel. A little noisy from the road traffic.

Girls Getaway

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The location was perfect for walking or catching the trolley. A homemade breakfast was served every morning. The rooms were clean. The beds were very comfortable. Overall it was a nice place to stay and a great value as well. It made for a great girls getaway.

Okay if your looking for a place to crash

The furniture was old, the refrigerator didn't work. Bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean. Hotel needs an update badly. The staff was very nice.

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

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!"

Took my son to Dollywood Splash Country for the weekend. I booked this hotel online and got a good deal on it. Great location, friendly staff, but average accommodations.
