This hotel could be exceptional, with a small amount of attention to details. The lobby is very nice and unexpected for an Econ Lodge. The indoor pool area is neatly designed, there's an exercise room with equipment, and adequate vending. They have a very nice breakfast area with a hot breakfast: eggs, sausage, gravy, biscuits, etc. The room was larger...

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 March 2017

I went on a trip with my mom and a friend and I wasn't sure exactly where to stay in Pigeon Forge. I found this Econo Lodge online and it looked promising. I was not disappointed. Not only was it close to everything that we wanted to do, it was exactly as advertised. We stayed in the backside over looking...

Great location! We could have walked to several show/dinner theaters if we had wanted to. Trolley stop just a couple hundred feet away, too. The addition of the river walk, benches, tables, gazebo, grills, and fire pit are great! It's like a park along the river. An earlier review mentioned the concern of geese being a nuisance if eating at...

Three nights here and every one was great. What was most impressive was the way the breakfast people had it so together with feeding a full hotel every day we were there. Their facility was a bit cramped but cozy. The food never ran out. Love the stream and the ducks. Room and room service was excellent. All staff friendly...
