Clarion Inn Dollywood Area

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I give this hotel the highest rating, but if it had a scenic view, I'd want to give it something more than that. The staff members are friendly; the rooms are very, very comfortable; the hotel is quiet; and the breakfasts are first-rate. It's slightly off the main strip through town, so it's away from the busy traffic, too. As for the view, the hotel faces the backs of several buildings (across a fairly large parking lot), so it doesn't offer the type of panoramic vistas that one might associate with the Smoky Mountains. Still, I've stayed there on several trips to the Pigeon Forge area, and I like the hotel enough that it'll be one of the first that I look at if and when I return to the area.

Beds were so hard you could break plates on them. Also there was no lazy river like picture shows.

Highly recommend! This place was an unexpected pleasure. The rooms were clean and the beds were comfortable. An added bonus was the breakfast bar. It had everything we could want and was delicious. Do yourself a favor and stay here. You won't be sorry.

I had a great experience!! Great location. All new construction. Hotel lobby was large and inviting. Check-in was quick and easy. Hotel staff was professional and curteous. Room was modern, spacious, clean, and nicely appointed... flat-screen T.V., microwave and refrigerator. Beds were incredibly comfortable. Bathroom was spacious and modern, with separate room for toilet. Private outdoor balcony attached to every room. Good selection of options at the complimentary continental breakfast. Overall, I got a terrific hotel, at a terrific price!!

Everything was terrific. Clean, neat, friendly, close to everything, great breakfast, nice amenities, etc.

Very nice and quiet. Everything was nice and clean. Great breakfast.

Took two boys 8 &11...arrived late at night to a clean comfortable room and friendly staff. The boys were still able to swim in the warm indoor pool as it was open til 2 am. Next morning a sufficient breakfast spread although it was very crowded even after 9 am. Then it was off to Dollywood followed by a second night at the pool and a comfortable stay. Will definitely try to stay at the Clarion Inn on our next trip:)

This was our first visit to Clarion Inn-Dollywood, and we loved it. The staff was amazing. The rooms and corridors were immaculately clean. Location was perfect. We will definitely stay here from now on when we travel to the area.

The breakfast area was very cramped and not enough space.

Hotel was close to all attractions. Staff very friendly and courteous. Rooms were spacious and very clean.

The hotel was nice and clean, so were the rooms. My only complaint about the rooms were the pillows were small squares, not regular pillows. The pool inside stayed crowded because of the basketball hoop right beside it that kids could use to play while in the pool. The outside pool, well, it was a very tiny lazy river and that was it. My kids tried out the slide and said it was uncomfortable to go down. The breakfast was good. Overall, I think its not worth the price I paid. Will probably look elsewhere next time.

Brand new facility, impeccably well kept. Beds were firm but comfortable. Breakfast buffet was more than ample. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. Staff was very accommodating. A little difficult getting in and out of. Not right on the Parkway. Plenty of discounted tickets to local attractions. Will stay again.

This is a new hotel and very clean. The rooms are spacious and comfortable. The breakfast buffet had lots of options, both hot and cold items, including cooked to order omoletes. We will definitely stay here again when we visit Pigeon Forge.

Thank you so much for a wonderful stay! This hotel is fabulous!! Our room was excellent! Management and Staff were super friendly!!!! We will be back!!!

Our experience at this hotel was wonderful! We arrived with no luggage and the front desk staff supplied us with toothbrushes and toothpaste. When our bags arrived after 2am, they were brought to our room. The room had a 2-step stool so our 5 year old could reach the sink to wash and brush her teeth. It was a great touch! The 7:15 "treats" were thoroughly enjoyed by everyone in our family. Definitely a place we would stay again - clean, comfortable, and very family-friendly.

Very impressed with the staff and quality of the rooms

My husband and i thoroughly enjoyed our stay at the Clarion. It was very nice and very clean. We just wanted to get a way for the weekend and we just laid by the pool area most of the day. Which is (pool) also nice. It has a great swim area for kids and adults. i liked that it was close to lots of things to do but not on the main strip. There are plenty of close choice places to eat and shop.

Never having made a reservation for any place on the internet...I had a few reservations....but....without a doubt the BEST place I've ever stayed! From calling (got lost) to get directions to the wonderful people we met, I can't think of a better time I've ever had. The room was perfect, the pool and hot tube were great, and the people.....I can't say enough how nice, friendly, helpful and just all around great they were. [...] went way beyond just being "employees"....they made you feel like they really enjoyed being there and treated us like "family". From the start....with a massage chair....to the leaving.....I've never felt more "at home" than we did here. Without any doubts we will return.

it was great. granted it was a new hotel but everything was to our standard and above...
