Well it's the first day being temporarily unemployed. Feels weird knowing I won't be going back to the hospital to work. Got a lot accomplished. My passport arrived finally. We got the hitch installed and the trailer reserved. We got to spend the morning with sweet friends and their 12 horses and numerous cats. Had a blast feeding carrots and apples to the horses. I'm sure going to miss these wonderful ...
Beautiful morning started off with the boys fishing while we were getting ready to leave Kentucky. We saw many horse farms in the rolling hills through the countryside. Jesse and I took a selfie..... Lol... We do look alike when I have no makeup on! Then the 7 hour drive to the Great Smoky National park. The boys were defiantly getting wrestless and began teasing and fighting a bit. Rich and I had our patience worn but we ...
My great grandmother and little seven year old brother got trapped in an elevator for one solid hour. Me and my mother were waiting for them and when they walked in they told us the story. They said that they called dispatch three times but no one came until one hour. The ...
... to do in Pigeon Forge, we should have pancakes for dinner! Unfortunately, we found out that pancake places all closed at 2-3pm. (You would think tourists would want pancakes at 1am after riding on crazy go karts?! Maybe its time for me to go into business...). After some searching, we found a place called "The Diner" in Sevierville that served all day breakfast. It was pretty good pancakes and we left full ...
... the Forest was a very nice hike - a little challenging as there was a steady climb. The boys quit halfway through, claiming boredom, retracing their steps to the parking lot. We girls pushed on and enjoyed the walk. Sadly, I missed the giant trees somehow. I'm still not sure how I missed seeing them - maybe I missed a spur on the trail?
After all this, we rejoined Phan and Thao at the motorcycle rental place and headed back for a bonfire at the cabin.

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.
