Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Adamn22 Poor Priority Club experience; Rooms Need Better upkeep
This hotel has a very nice appearance on the exterior and in the lobby. However, the rooms were not so well kept the vaneir was peeling off the bathroom door, the air conditioner was loud and the shower made a horrible squeezing noise. The only nice things about the rooms are the huge televisions.
Most disappointing was the priority club experience. Even as a base member in the priority club I have never stayed at a holiday inn that didn't do something to recognize its priority club members, so I was very supprised that as a platinum member there was no free breakfast, no complimentary beverages and no even so much as a free bottle of water and a thank you for being a platinum member.
For the money, the express in pigeon forge is your best bet the hotel is better kept rooms are spotless and breakfast is always free. Much better recognition of priority club members as well. I wanted to give this hotel a shot but from now on I will definitely choose the express

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Glock19Ga Relaxing Weekend Getaway
This was our second time staying at this location, and it was the perfect weekend getaway. The location is perfect for Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg is only a short drive up the street. Our room, which was the suite with the jacuzzi, was remarkable. The last time we stayed, we only had the standard room, and I do have to say that the suite is worth the extra money. I would recommend this hotel to family and friends and can't imagine staying anywhere else in Pigeon Forge. The only thing I do wish they had were weights in the "cardio room/gym".

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by RP75 Disapointed loyal customer
Was with my work for a convention and the matress was horrible you could visibly see the spring prints threw the matress. it was th most uncomfortable stay i have ever experienced with holiday inn .. we come twice a year and stay at holiday inn in pigeon forge for the rod run and i attend APIC every year . i talked to the desk personnel several times and even gave them my personal cell phone number to call me incase a diff room became available. i was so disapointed! my husband had to sleep in the floor because it was more comfortable than the spring poking him in the leg and he didnt want to inconvience me neither. i also had a make up stain on my sheet under the cover when i turned it down to sleep so we just jerked it off and thens wehn we noticed how bad the springs were in this room.. we had twin beds which was another con because i had requested a king but we sorta made do but for the price of the rooms for 2 nights it was by far a disapointment and a experiece i wont forget no time soon

This hotel was very comfortable and our room was nice and clean and well appointed. It was close to restaurants and despite being near the main road it was quiet. The breakfast buffet was excellent value for $9.

My husband and I truly enjoyed our stay, and will definitely stay again. The room was very clean, linens were replenished daily, and the room was very conveniently located to ice and vending machines.

Stayed for three nights for a convention. Overall experience was good. Room could have been cleaner. The carpet in the room was very dirty and needed to be shampooed.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Jimbo1937 Old and outdated
This place is in serious need to be modernized. One (1) outlet available to plug in our devices. Bath had no towel racks. You had to lay the towel next to the sink. Hotel personnel suggested I hang my used towel on the shower rack. Otherwise did not care to discuss the matter with me. Nothing looked clean enough to me. I will never say here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Vickie791 New Remodel
We were in Pigeon Forge for our TN Monument Convention. I just loved the new facilities for our meetings. They were very nice, clean, and we had plenty of room. The food that was served at our meetings was very good, and your staff was very competent and friendly.
I do have a couple of complaints, however. Both ice machines on our floor were broken for most of our stay. I reported it to the front desk on two different days.
The other thing is the beds. I really wish you had spent a few of those remodeling dollars on new mattresses. I did not sleep well, but part of that was from being away from home. I always dread sleeping away from home, because you never know what kind of mattress you're going to find in a motel. The mattress did not meet my standards at all!
We will probably be back in the future for meetings. Maybe you can upgrade them before that time.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Roadrunner6 Cold conference room
The company I work for had a regional meeting in one of the conference rooms and it was so cold no one was comfortable. We notified the desk and they indicated they would send someone to work on the air conditioning, but no one ever came to correct the issue.

This hotel is adjacent to a trolley stop if you don't want to drive in the heavy traffic that is sometimes difficult in Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg. The Cheddars Restaurant next door has great food and has a large seating capacity....the Onion Rings are to die for....Great stay.

We were in town for a wedding that was at 5:20 PM on the day we arrived at Almost Heaven Weddings & Events, which under NORMAL traffic times would have been just 20 - 30 minutes from our motel. Because Pigeon Forge on that day was closer to being almost the EXACT opposite of Almost Heaven (LOL) we were definitely pushed for time. We were actually able to check in an hour early and because of that we were able to take a back route to the wedding site and made it within 10 minutes of the ceremony start!!!! Thanks to Holiday Inn for allowing us the early check in. All this said, we definitely will return at a time when it is less crowded and actually go into Gatlinburg & check it out!!!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Thouston86 Beautiful Hotel - On the outside...
This hotel is beautiful on the outside and the lobby, restaurant and pool areas are great. However, In most of the hotels that I have stayed at I have been able to check in a little early as an rewards club member but not here, we were told to call back at 4:00 pm to see of our room would be ready. And the rooms were a big disappointment too. We were traveling with our 13 yr old son so we stayed in one of the 2-room family suites. The layout of the rooms were fantastic with lots of floor space but the decor looked like it was left over from the 70's complete with green chairs. The bath room door was falling apart and looked as though it had been patched more than once; and the bath room floor was sticky. There were a few hairs left on the tub too (gross). Needless to say my wife had to do some cleaning before we felt comfortable. Not quite how we wanted to spend our vacation.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Biztrav1 Not worth the $$$
The location was great and the lobby was beautiful; however the room was stuffy, dated and semi clean. The bathroom was also dated and in need of an overhaul. (The granite counter top was a nice touch, but that was the highlight). The bath tub was "spongy" and felt as though it was going to collapse under my feet when I was showering.
Initially the staff was not helpful when I called and asked for directions -- their tone was impatient and, after being placed on hold several times, I was finally able to speak with someone who could answer my questions regarding the hotel's location.
I've stayed at numerous Holiday Inn's and this was by far my least favorite experience. Unfortunately, I cannot say I would recommend this hotel to friends/family.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by 48paul La friends lead us on tour of Pigeon Forge/Gatlingburg area
We had a good stay in the hotel. My companion was able to continue her exercise program during our stay. We choose to use the do not disturb sign so that housekeeping doesn't have to clean until we check out. Re using towels isn't a problem as you provide several sets in the room as it is. Easy in/out location allowed us to get around town and see the local attractions. We are already planning a return trip to the area in the near future.
Teased the waitress throughout breakfast on our last day and she "retaliated" by presenting me with a happy face balloon- great sense of humor.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by CrystalF1218 Clean and comfortable
The room was very clean and we all slept great the whole time. The lobby was beautiful! Front desk staff was friendly upon check-in. The hotel sits off the road so we were not disturbed by the noise from the traffic. The only complaint we have is with the restaurant. My husband and son went down for breakfast the first morning we were there, they were seated right away and the hostess said she would be right back to take their order......35 minutes later she comes and says "oops I guess I forgot about you guys didn't I?". She places their order and then comes back with the check before they even get their food which was 25 minutes later. The staff was not apologetic for the mishap and seemed to think it was no big deal. My husband is a lot more patient than me because there is no way I would have stayed and had breakfast when there are plenty of other places within walking distance that I'm sure would love to have had our business. So with all of that said I think the restaurant could use some improvement.

The hotel is in desperate need of modernization. The toilet and shower area was very small (sink and dressing room is separate. The room and lobby area are quite comfortable. The staff was great. Our reserved room was located down a hallway that was not pleasant as there were no windows, pictures, or décor.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tkidd Not a good experience
We booked and paid for our stay in advance. The beds were very uncomfortable. My back still hurts from my stay in this hotel. To complete the already bad experience, we came to our room (with numerous bags in tow after a shopping trip to Tanger) to find our room key cards had been deactivated. Again, with our numerous shopping bags we carried to the front desk to ask why our keys did not work. The staff did not even apologize nor did they have an reason why the key cards were deactivated. I am a gold member to another hotel chain and I have never had one issue with them. Unfortunately, this area did not have that particular chain. I am very regretful that we gave this hotel our business and I guarantee, it will not happen again.

We recently stayed at Holiday Inn in Pigeon Forge and had a great room. It included a microwave, refrigerator, coffee maker and sofa in the room. We could not have asked for a nicer room and better place to stay for our 3 night stay. So many hotels you visit to not have a microwave and fridge and we found that to be very important to bring back "to go boxes" from nearby restaurants to enjoy the next day. We would definitely book a stay there again.
