“Awesome Hotel”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 1 June 2012

I work for Choice Hotels and this is not only the best Clarion I've ever stayed at, It's also one of the best Choice properties that I have ever visited. The staff is superb, the rooms wer fresh and cleana nd the location could not have been more perfect. I woudl highly reccomend this property to anyone visiting Pigeon Forge.

Thank you for the recommendation. We are proud to be a part of the Choice Hotels family and we are grateful to receive the Platinum Award within 18 months of opening. I want to thank my staff and the ownership for this achievement. We still need all our customers to spread the word about there stay and together we can take the hotel experience to yet another level.

Since we live in the area, we visit Pigeon Forge a few times a year. Over the years we've stayed in various cabins and hotels but have never really found any that we liked enough to return to.

After reading these reviews, we decided to try the Clarion Inn. I'm so glad we did, as we finally have our home away from home! The hotel was clean, the amenities are excellent, the staff was great and the location is perfect. We have two small children and the staff was extremely accommodating. The daily maid service is great too, which is a feature that is slowly disappearing from hotels these days. We'll be staying here from now on and you should too!

Thanks for the excellent review. We want this hotel to be like home and from your review it seems that we have achieved this goal. Customer Service is disappearing in all businesses across the country and we at the the Clarion Inn want to bring that back. For those of you that have not experienced this at other hotels, give us a try, and we will surely not dissapoint.

We strive for the A plus rating and we appreciate your comments about Bill. Bill has been with the property a little after opening. He handles all the front desk duties and keeps the hotel running, since he is in constant communication with the owner. He also handles all the rates for the hotel, and lets me be the interactive GM that customers need nowadays. So, remember next time you need a discount on a room, both you and I, still have to go thru Bill.

This hotel is amazing. The checkin was fast and simple. The rooms are huge. The fireplace and hot tub for two are even more amazing. The view is great at night because you see the whole strip lit up. We had a nice storm roll in so we got to see some amazing lightning storm roll from very far away. The beds were so comfortable. The rooms were clean and smelled fresh. The breakfast offers over 40 items with a chef who does made to order omlets. Amazing. There were snacks as in fresh cookies and popcorn and lemonade in the evening. The lazy river pool was nice as was the kiddie splash area. I was surprised they had both an indoor and outdoor hot tub. And an indoor pool. The huge water slide did hurt going down but might be better if you had a mat or something. There are ipads in the lobby for the kids to play on. Piano in lobby to enjoy. All around its just amazing!

Room Tip: We were on the 6th floor. Have balcony facing the strip and a fireplace and hot tub. We never heard...

We appreciate your comments and thank you for your time in expressing your comments about the numerous Clarion Inn amenities. We have alot people enjoy our outdoor waterpark features. Your right that most hotels have one hot tub, but of course, our hotel has two that are open year around. The slide is designed by makers of slides for Disney World, and they are a little bumpy compared to traditional fiberglass slides. The key to sliding down these type of slides is to keep your hands tucked to your chest causing less friction and sliding down feet first. I've seen 4 yr old kids go down the slide 15 to 20 times in a half hour period with no problems. We are experimenting with some mats for the grown ups that we will implement soon.

My family had a wonderful Memorial Day weekend at the Clarion Inn. It is in a great location. The breakfast is great and has many options. I especially liked the fresh omelet station made to order. Our room was very clean and comfortable. The staff is helpful and informative. The kids loved the pool area with the sprinklers slide and lazy river and stayed open till 2 AM. They also served kids sno cones poolside. We also enjoyed the parrot in the lobby as well. Scott (the manager) was very nice and friendly and made sure that our stay was enjoyable. Thank you for such a great stay. You can count on us to be back on our next visit to the Smokies. If you need discounts just ask the front desk they have many to choose from. I would recommend this Clarion Inn to everyone. (So many extras) I hope I have done a good job writing a great review because my family and I really did love this place. Thanks!

Room Tip: We stayed on the 2nd floor facing the back. Not a good view but the shade was nice from the trees so...

Thank you for the wonderful review. You make my job easier by writing what you and your family experienced at the Clarion Inn. As you may have noticed this Memorial Weekend, we have a new rate structure that applies on Special Event Weekends and Holidays where as we are are required by Corporate, not to offer any discounts for these times. As you mentioned in your review, we still can save you money to the area attractions. The parrot in the lobby is a replacement from Parrot Mountain, for Esther, who will be back after getting some customer training.
