Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Inn & Suites Gatlinburg
This hotel is a rip off!!!
I made reservations for a penthouse and was quoted a price for 3 nights HOWEVER this was the price for one night! The price was over $600.00 and the room was not even worth $200.00! This hotel is the biggest ripoff in Gatlinburg. Do not stay there!!!!
Nice Hotel, Staff a little rude
This is a nicely maintained hotel, and while not upscale, is certainly clean and confortable. We had a problem with our room and it was handled effecitvely by the maintenance crews. The only complaint I would have is that they need additional customer service training for their morning front desk staff. One lady in particular was downright rude, and this was upon check-in. We considered cancling our reservation and going elsewhere. Nice hotel with some personnel issues.
I love the Smoky's!!! Prices can be high! hotel is clean , safe and nicely decorated. My husband and I visit the Smoky's 3-4 times a year for quick get-away. Since this hotel is farther down the main strip it is quiet. And I like the closer entry to the park. I am pleased with hotel and would stay here again . I have stayed here 3 times in last 2 Look for on line dicounts for this hotel.Mountain Fairy
In my opinion, this is the nicest hotel in Gatlinburg. The rooms were clean, comfortable and with balconies. The staff, including security, were exceptionally nice. Located near stop light 10, it is approximately 1 block to Ober Gatlinburg where you can ski during the winter or play games, ride go-karts, and putt putt year round and 1 block to the entrance of the Smoky Mountains. Restaurants are all around and you can easily walk to where all the action is.
I was very pleased
Their "Platinum" rating is well deserved. I am an extremely picky person and was quite pleased with this hotel. First of all it was very clean, including everything from the sidewalks, parking lot, lobby, hallways, elevators, and of course the room. While in the room, I wore white "footies" and they did not become black from walking on the carpeting. Next, the room was attractively decorated and well furnished. It included a fridge/microwave, iron/board, sofa/extra chair and a balcony. The staff was very pleasant and accommodating. Lastly the hotel was conveniently located near great restaurants, shopping, a market and the mountains.
Regulars at Clarion
My husband and I visit the Smokies every year, we aways stay at the Clarion, it is a bit pricey, but the nicest hotel in downtown Gatlinburg. Worth the Stay!!!
Very nice hotel. Friendly staff, and great location. You are right in the heart of downtown Gatlinburg. The pool was not very clean though. Everything else was very nice!
Rooms were clean and breakfast was good. I was unhappy with the pool needs to be clean more often by professionals, if you use your goggles to see the bottom of the pool you would understand. Don't want gross anyone. They need better lighting in that pool area. One light does not cut it.
What a GREAT place!
This was a great place to stay!! The staff at the front desk was so pleasant and helpful. They even called the room about 30 mins after we checked in! The room was nice and clean and the baclony was nice. Great location, we walked everywhere!! I will defintely stay here next year!!
A favorite of ours
Wonderful place to stay. Right in downtown Gatlinburg. Leave your car parked at the hotel and walk to everything. Nice clean rooms. Very updated compaired to most of the motels in downtown Gatlinburg. We stay there about 4 times per year. Price is reasonable for the top quality.

Blue ridge parkway in the smoky mountains. Rode a stretch that was so narrow and as tight as anything on the dragon. Kent started the day with his shirt on backwards! Ha!! Cool up in the mountains , had to pull out a jacket! Great day! Heading out tomorrow back to Kentucky starting ...
... male labs. He was in LOVE with Bruce... but could of cared less about Missy (a smaller mix female)
5) Dolly Parton was everywhere. She has a highway named after her, a theme park... i think a splash park... it's just dolly dolly dolly.
6) Traffic was awful. Awful.
7) Moonshine from TN is no joke... I'm pretty sure you catch a buzz just from walking past the jar....
The night in TN was great, Phil and his family ...

In the afternoon we finally get into the quiet and peacefully remote place that we desired: ahhhh, like heaven on earth after all the cities and traffic. We look forward staying on the Meadow Creek Mountain Ranch in eastern Tennessee for the next 4 nights.
It seems like every time that I look at the day I have lost three. Every day here on the mountain is packed full of programming and relationship building to the point that I been forgetting about everything else that is off of the mountain like keeping up with my blog. I that having a blog for my summer experience is not going to work well as I am not able to devote my time to it as I would like to do. Even scarier is that I have a 5 page ...
... hard work trying to keep up with Bob and Tom on their KTM's as it was very slippery in places but the BMW coped well with the trails especially the dry hard packed gravel, Tom was quite surprised to find me hot on his tail.
It's our last night here with Bob and Jude, I can't believe we have been here 10 days and ...
