"Much nicer than Expected"
March, 2019 NEW
This place was good overall, and GREAT for a cheap motel. The room was clean and the beds were comfortable, the staff was friendly, the biscuits at breakfast were yummy, and we absolutely could not beat the price. The location is hard to beat in terms of access to all the attractions and restaurants. For anyone looking to go cheap on lodging so that they can visit more attractions in Pigeon Forge, this is the place to stay.

Edited to add: The parking lot is well lit and I felt safe staying here with my 5-year-old. This isn't a five-star hotel, but the costs cut are on frills, not maintenance, cleanliness, or safety.

Tip: You're right on the strip, so the traffic noise is pretty loud. On the other hand, you're RIGHT ON THE STRIP, with a trolley stop in the parking lot. The location is amazing.

If you don't mind bugs in your room this is the place for you! I woke up to find five bugs on my ceiling and walls. No one at the front desk until 8am

"Nice place to stay."
August, 2018
We stayed here for two nights recently and thought the motel was pretty nice for an older place to stay. The rooms seemed to have been updated some with new pillow top mattresses. the beds were comfortable after staying in some places where the beds were hard as a rock. I had trouble with a purchase in the vending machine, went into the office and it was taken care of immediately. Breakfast served every morning too was nice. Would stay here again when in Pigeon Forge.

"Nice hotel"
TripAdvisor user rating 5 out of 5
Reviewed March 13, 2019 NEW
This is a nice hotel/motel. We had never been before my mom told me about how nice the bed where. They are so soft and comfortable. I liked that they had dark curtains so the lights from outside wouldn’t shine in. The balcony was nice too. Only thing we didn’t like was the breakfast. Not many choices and they are supposed to changed the menu daily but didn’t and we asked why something wasn’t on there they just said we stop adding that food. Which was sausage links because my kids didn’t like eggs so one day they didn’t eat very much. We did like cause the hotel was in the middle of down town but over all I say it’s a good place to stay. We would come back.

I just checked out and had to write a review. I loved this hotel. You don’t know what to expect for $40/nt, but this hotel is perfect. My room was super clean, the furniture was nice, the fixtures were nice, the bedding was nice, and the room was quiet. The staff is also very friendly and quick! I was there for a business trip and will be coming to the area frequently, and this is going to be where I stay!!!

Reviewed March 02, 2019 NEW
Found this hotel via Google search and very glad I made the reservation. I booked a king room with a fireplace. It wasn't really cold enough for it but it will heat the room. You can also see the beautiful mountains outside the window. There are several good restaurants and places to shop within walking distance. Breakfast was not the greatest but I would stay here again.

"Surprising weekend stay at Vacation Lodge"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5
Reviewed February 25, 2019 NEW
We have not really visited Pigeon Forge so we made plans for the weekend. I performed extensive research of hotels and cabins in Pigeon Forge and Wears Valley. Of all the reviews on Trip Advisor, Vacation Lodge had more good reviews than most. So I booked 2 nights through Expedia. The front desk staff provided friendly service. The room was clean and spacious with comfortable beds and a large bathroom with a hot shower. I booked a room with a gas fireplace. The first night, the AC/Heat unit had problems. However, I spoke with the nice lady at the front desk the next morning and she had it fixed very quickly. The outside street noise was minimal. We did not try the breakfast service only because we chose to go to pancake houses. Don't let the older look of the outside of the building fool you. This hotel provided great service and a comfortable stay for a good price. I recommend giving them a try.

Very friendly staff. Reasonably priced and all around nice place. We had the two queen mini suite, and it was very spacious. The towel rack in the bathroom needed to secured better to the wall, but other than that clean and nice. Nice size TV and gas fireplace in the room. Great location for getting out and about. Trolley stop right out front and old mill across the street. We will most likely stay here again next time.
