Very nice and up to date hotel. We liked to be able to go out our door and sit by the river and feed the ducks. The breakfast was supplied with lots of good food. The bathroom was very small but clean. The pool was nice but we could not get in to swim because it was always filled with...

We stayed here on a whim for one night. The hotel is nice and clean. Our room had a great view overlooking the river. We also had a small kitchenette, including a small fridge and microwave. It is convenient to everything - right on the main strip. Breakfast was decent, offering grits, scrambled eggs, sausage, biscuits and gravy, pancakes, cereals...

Found this location last minute. Not sure if I was doing something wrong but it never came up under any Kayak/Tripadvisor/Orbitz/etc. searches, I booked it directly through their website. This location is fairly new so that helped a lot with cleanliness but overall was very nice. Pool area was nice but we didn't use it. Had arcade as well. Location...

My daughter and I enjoyed our stay there. We didn't stay near the pool because it's loud but the rest of the hotel is quiet. Breakfast was good except for the pancakes which were rubbery. The park setting out back was wonderful. You could feed the ducks, geese and pigeons!

The hotel itself is very nice except our bathroom door looked like someone tried to break into it as the knob was loose and wobbly and there were dents in the door. The grounds were very nice and the walkway along the river was wonderful. I would stay there again.

We were in Pigeon Forge for 4 days. As you know (for those of you that have visited there).You are pretty worn worn out by the time you get back to the hotel and I could not have found a better place to stay. Very hospitable staff, very helpful and the setting is serene on the bank of the river....
