The day started out great, was raining, so we decided to stay another day. Did the usual, hit up the outdoor storerabbed a bite to eat, and then decided tinto go out by myself for a bit. Stopped by a bar and had a drink or two, then walked around downtown. Had another drink at a shop, had some other fun stuff..then decided to go to the hotel and see what was going on. I ended up running into my group...they were heading to free moonshine tasting....so I tagged along. Had ...

... jumping out of 2nd stories windows, stealing, taking advantage of kind people, and being tweaked out of his mind.........he got arrested! So that was good news, hopefully they keep him in for a long while - he had enough drugs on him - hopefully it gets him some real time. Other than that, nothing extreme going on. Just a relaxing ...

... seeing it through the snow - using my head lamp. The rest of the night hike went well, I goofed around a little more then I should have, but made for an interesting and fun night hike. Total of 19 miles tonight. Tuesday March 25, Arrived to NOC at 10 am. Decided to stay in the bunkhouse, because my feet were wet for so long, and the left foot is still healing from the infection. There was a HUGE hiker dinner made by a couple fellow hikers. Thank you all for that - was great! We ...

The Great Smoky National Park

When we left Gatlinburg, we decided to drive through the park. The clouds and fog down below weren't too bad, but were in full force as we passed by the Chimney Tops and Clingman's Dome. The fog only got thicker and more dense the higher up we went. But it was still pretty. No leaves on the trees yet, but that made the view more interesting because you could see the terrain - the ...

    Historical Traveler Reviews Clarion Inn & Suites Gatlinburg

    This hotel is a rip off!!!

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Nice Hotel

    from

    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

    Lovely hotel

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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!!!

    Great location!

    from

    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!

    Good

    from

    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!

    from

    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

    from

    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.
