Cons. They overbooked and sent us to WildBear Inn, a two star hotel at Pigeon Forge. Before that, they sent us to a better one, which is operated by the same company as WildBear Inn, and took us almost one hour to wait for check-in, but that hotel told us they sent us too the wrong one, since they also overbooked. We paid much more than the price for a two star hotel at that far, but finally we could only go there and just got two free pancakes for they mistake. Who need to pancakes!

Pros. Good location, nice views

Cons. Rooms looking run-down, bathtub has been painted. $170 non-refundable pet charge is ridiculous for a 2 night stay.

Pros. We liked the location. It was within walking distance to almost everything. Loved to restaurant and the outdoor eating by the river. Service was poor but the atmosphere was worth it. Room was clean and spacious. Great view of the mountains. I would return again even though the pool was a disappointment.

Cons. The pool was so dirty that we couldn't even swim in it. My granddaughter threw a swim stick in and we couldn't even find it. At night when the pool lights were shining, you could see bits of white floating all over.

Anonymous, Jul. 2016

Pros. Location is great, just a block away from the strip. Walking distance to everything. Sheets and towels were clean.

Cons. Extremely outdated. I'm sure this hotel was very nice in 1980 but not much has changed since then. TV is the only update. Place looks dirty just from years and years of use. The room smelled like a dead animal. Smell was coming from the refrigerator. We only stayed two nights so we just toughed it out. I wouldn't recommend this hotel.
