Room smelled musty, floor had not been vacuumed. Hairs on bathroom vanity and shower.My husband got in shower, pulled the shower curtain closed, there was a washcloth (it had apparently been used) on top of shower curtain. When he pushed shower curtain back we noticed mildew on the ceiling, so it's untelling how long it had been there.

We stayed 3 nights, the lobby was clean and friendly. The room was good and clean.. But they say free wi-fi we could never connect.. They stated it was our room location. The free breakfast was good but they need a new spot for the waffle grill it backs up everyone.

Really great place to stay. All the employees were really nice and made you feel welcome. Everybody I had an interaction with made me and my family feel welcomed. I would recommended this hotel to any one that was staying in Pigeon Forge. the only problem was the wifi was horrible.

The place looked ok at first, but once we went to climb into bed we discovered one of our mattresses was soaked with URINE! I'm assuming it was the previous guests, probably from a child, or maybe even some one who had too much to drink. Not necessarily the hotels fault. I just wished the cleaning lady hadn't just ignored...

One star because I can't give a zero. Broken lamps.. Stained toilets.. Dead bugs on floor.. Pool broken....refrigerator leaks.. Stained linens.. Too much to list... Don't waste your money. There are cigarette butts are overflowing in the planters.. Parking is terrible.. Bedsprings are broken... The A/C does its job and gets the room nice and cold!

Phone in room didn't work. Staff failed to provide replacement. No cell signal or Wi-fi signal in room. We spent a significant amount of time in the parking lot trying to use phone. Claims of free HBO are not true. Room ok. Continental breakfast, but little room for guests to sit and eat. Air conditioning worked great. That's about the...

Very clean. Air conditioning works fine. Great for location, you can get a bus to Dollywood for $1 each. The staff are very friendly and can give you recommendations for restaurants. The pool is small so is full of little ones. The wifi is patchy and breakfast wasn't up to much but for what we paid we can't complain. I'd...

We got a Groupon for Island Lodge and it was great from start to finish! The staff was very helpful, the room was clean, beds were comfy, jacuzzi and bathroom was clean, and there was decent space! We enjoyed our stay so much the staff was helpful in getting us the next best price because there were no more Groupon...
