    Very good

    The room was nice and clean.. The breakfast was very good...eggs, biscuits w/ gravy, oatmeal, fresh fruit, and they even offered sausage links...So if you don't want ordinary continental breakfast, a clean room, in close proximity to popular surroundings this is the place for you..My kids especially loved the in door swimming pool (very clean).

    The bathroom was very small..I Mean.... I am not claustrophobic but going into this teeny tiny bathroom converted me...

    Excellent breakfast. Nice pool and hot tub area. Staff was friendly and extremely helpful in finding local attractions we were looking for. Feeding ducks / Canadian geese along the brook that runs across the back of the property was fun. Shopping and attractions within walking distance.

    October in Pigeon Forge is a heavy traffic time - expect heavy delays on the main road in.

    It was the nicest Econolodge we had ever seen or stayed at. The indoor pool with kiddie pool and hot tub were nice also. It made up for the rainy day we had in the mountains with the kiddos. They had free hot breakfast which could have been a little better- no protein optio s other than eggs, but not a total deal breaker as there are plenty of breakfast joints around Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge. If you are planning on budgeting for free breakfast just know ahead of time you may want other options. But all in all it was great stay- close to the river and the kids loved feeding the ducks everyday. The rooms weren't noisy either which surprised me as we were close to the pool. This property had a lot of recent upgrades and it payed off. We would definitely stay again and good value too! Kid friendly with comfy beds and the small kitchenette was a plus!

    Probably the breakfast- it was on the lower side of ok I guess- biscuits n gravy a little fruit and muffins and eggs. No bagels or meats and not a lot of options. My only real complaint. My son said the arcade kept taking his money but we never checked into that.

    Fabulous

    It was very affordable and family oriented with a friendly staff. We were ground level pool side, so it was very cool to just step out of our room to the indoor pool/ hot tub. The river setting and free breakfast was a nice bonus too. Thanks for a great stay!

    The only complaint I have is the chlorine levels seemed like they were a little high in pool and hot tub.

    Very impressed for an Econolodge facility to be this great for this price. Location beautiful with the grounds by the river in the back, room on the rear away from the traffic. Very pleasant stay.

    Full breakfast hit the spot each morning. For the area it is a good value. Room was clean but the tub footbed looked stained with mildew(?). The air conditioning kept us perfectly cool with 90 degree temps outside on the sunny side of building in afternoon/evening.

    The foot bed of the bath tub looked groady and black stains in several spots (bring flip-flops for showering). TV remote's power on/off button did not function, however all other buttons worked perfectly.

    The staff was real good and the location was real good

    People that smoke left there cigarette butts everywhere and we saw several people that were smoking in there rooms. The breakfast needed more fruit and an more variety of sweet rolls

    The only thing I didn't like was the drinking allowed at the pool with small children it should be contained to the room

    Superb

    The location of the hotel was perfect. It is minutes from Dollywood and the island at pigeon forge. The breakfast was good and the room was clean.

    The pool being in the middle of the hotel made it very loud, even when we were inside our room. Also, The bathroom did not have a vent. However, the pros outweighed the cons.
