Great price and very clean. We will be staying again when we visit the area and recommending to anyone we know visiting. Friendly staff. Quick check in and check out. Walking distance to many restaurants.

We were here for 5 nights. The hotel room was clean. The staff was friendly. They delivered fresh towels every morning. Beds were super comfy. Fridge, coffee maker & hair dryer in room. Free wifi. Our room was on the top (3rd) floor which was inconvenient. There's no elevator. Instead of stairs there's a ramp you have to climb, which...

Crispin at the front desk of the Wild Bear Inn in Pigeon Forge Tn was very helpful. He helped get us a better room when we got there and also gave us good ideas on where to eat around Pigeon Forge. Room was good and very reasonably priced. Thank you Crispin for making our stay more enjoyable.

We checked in to the Wild Bear Inn this weekend and were assisted by several folks behind the counter. Everyone was friendly and willing to help. Rooms were clean and smelled nice. Breakfast consisted of a free stack of pancakes which King Kong would have trouble finishing. I plan on staying here again.

Rooms were all booked at our regular motel. Tried this only because of location. Will go back, room was spacious and very clean. Right on the parkway. Will return on our next visit. Pricing was an awesome nothing, considering we were booking at last minute.

We've always stayed in a more central location during the Rod Runs. This hotel is right at the very edge of town. So if you come in from the Gatlinburg side and leave that way, you won't have to sit in traffic for hours. We were given the wrong room key at first, and walked in on some other guests....
