Great location, great shower and nice walk by the river. It was an interesting room but very tight quarters. No room for even one suitcase, because of carpet issues it took two hands to maneuver door, and AC didn't work. Couldn't sleep.

If you stay here you really Need to get river side. There is an indoor pool but it was too small for the amount of Guests here and was always overcrowded. The rooms were very clean and well taken care of. Best part was the proximity to local activities and feeding the ducks that lived behind the hotel!

We had several problems during our stay. The pool was overly crowded and doesn't accommodate the number of guests the hotel holds. More importantly, upon returning home my husband and daughter developed a rash. A trip to the pediatrician revealed a bacterial infection, usually caused by hot tub water that's not properly tested and treated. The bacteria will require strong...

We booked through booking and for a decent rate on the room rate. The staff was friendly and check in was fast. The hotel is older but very clean. We travel with our two year old and the staff acknowledged him and he was very excited. We will be back next year hopefully this time it will be winter time.

This is our favorite place to stay in Pigeon Forge (we have been here many times during the past 14 years). I absolutely love to walk out back and feed the ducks and geese along the river (very relaxing).

This is my fifth time staying here. On my first visit a few years ago, I was hesitant. Only because I generally stay at another hotel.
