Everything was so nice, we enjoyed our stay, we will definitely stay again at this property!

I like that it was a central location. Easy in and out.

They said breakfast included but no breakfast because of covid .but other hotels give a To go breakfast that I think they should have gave us because breakfast was advertised

Super clean and friendly staff. Kids loved the heated pool. Island is walking distance.

This is really just an average hotel. Check in staff was really friendly. We also thought the beds were quite comfortable. Despite the pools being dirty and looking like they dont get cleaned daily, my kids had a lot of fun. Cons: Every place in the area offers hand sanitizer. Couldnt find any around the hotel if your life depended on it. During a pandemic thats ridiculous. The bathroom by the pool was out of soap. We notified staff twice and it was still never filled. No alternative breakfast was being served which was unfortunate. Most hotels were at least doing a grab and go.

It was clean, quite and easy to find. would return.

Awesome breakfast buffet and service!! And evening cookies and popcorn was delightful!

Hot tub, heated pool, good breakfast, good location. Free cookies and popcorn.

Its my family’s 2d time at this hotel and we love everything. Thank you Clarion staff for everything. Will be back again soon.

The hotel was very clean, the staff was helpful, and the breakfast was amazing!

Great hotel which included an outstanding hot breakfast and very comfortable beds! The evening popcorn and cookies were a fun bonus too!

Nice place to stay. Only issue was lobby furniture was a little dirty.

we enjoyed staying at the Clarion Hotel. Reception was well done, management was very accommodating, the rooms were clean, and the beds were comfortable. The only problem we experienced was finding our way to the hotel. It is not located on a main road. One must navigate a couple of side streets in order to find the hotel.

Room was clean and comfortable. My bathroom was the kind I love where the actual lavatory is separated by a door so someone can use it while you are getting ready at sink. Breakfast was plentiful with options including made to order omelettes, all included. The pool was the highlight for my family. The indoor and outdoor was warm, there were 2 Jacuzzis and a small lazy river. But that enclosed tube slide was fun for all of us! The kids didn't want to leave! Pool open 6am-2am so plenty of fun time.

Rooms were large, bed was comfortable, no noisy heat/air unit, and room was clean

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.
