    We loved this hotel


    My family of 5 stayed here, and absolutely loved this hotel. It was the perfect place to relax after enjoying the sights of the area. My kids loved the Lazy River pool, with a current that takes tubes around the outer pool. They also enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub area - perfect for the cool mornings! The refrigerator is not tiny, it has a nice cold freezer, and the breakfast buffet was small but perfect, with cereals, juices, biscuits, muffins, & fruit. The rooms were large, with two queen beds & a pull-out sofa. The decor was beautiful, and the staff could not have been more friendly & helpful. And they had lightning bugs you can catch!!!

    Great Value


    Excellent Value. Clean, comfortable. Balcony in every room as well as fridge and freezer. Hot tub and indoor pool area is very nice.

    5-Star Quality


    This hotel is a DREAM. The rooms are lovely and roomy, the beds are so comfortable. Our room had a balcony with a river & mountain view. It looks like you have stepped into "Gone with the Wind" ! The decor, peace and tranquility of this hotel is of 5-star quality. We will stay here again.

    Extremely Satisfied!


    Superior and courteous service. Jacuzzi suite was impeccably clean and comfortable. Room was quiet and frankly a haven after a long day. Gone With the Wind decor was very appealing. My only regret .... which I could have stayed longer. Thanks Clarion Inn!

    Try the jacuzzi suite!


    I haved stayed here twice in one of the jacuzzi suites. Not only is the tub great, but the room is large and not long and narrow. The fireplace is also very nice. The best rooms are 101, 103, and 107. These are on the 1st floor. 101 is on the end acrros from the lobby by itself. Nice room. Beautiful hotel. I have reservations there this weekend in for $87.90 for a suite with fireplace and hot tub. Can't beat that. AAA discount-reg 109.00 They also have an indoor pool with a whirlpool right next door to the rooms I mentioned, which are also close to the lobby. Beautiful, clean hotel, next door to Route 66 Restaurant. On sat. nights Route 66 has someone picking and singing in the lounge, (where you can also buy a drink). This hotel is very close to everything. Across the street is Scenic helicopter tours, and about 1-2 miles is Golden Corral. Hope I helped. Enjoy your stay!

    Can't Go Wrong!!


    This was absolutely the most delightful hotel I have ever stayed in.

    My husband and I were in awe from the minute we pulled into the parking lot. The hotel is beautifully kept and run. The staff is more than gracious and we never saw a one of them without a smile. Our room was gorgeous and definetly we got a deal. It was extremely clean and looked brand new. It was very, very spacious and had a view of the river that was just romantic.

    We will never stay anywhere different. We both strongly recommend it.

    Excellent Staff


    Have stayed here many times , the staff ,especially Jan , is very nice, and accomodating. Its a beautiful place to stay and I highly recommend it. A big plus! You can get back on Interstate in minutes when you leave for home. Ask the front desk for the "shortcuts" to Gatlinburg to avoid traffic.

    LOVED this hotel


    We stayed here two nights and LOVED this place. Had a room right on the river, unloading the car was a breeze, the continental breakfast was fine, and our 9yo son loved their THREE pools. Very quiet, very clean, and non-smoking was definitely non-smoking.The only thing I wanted to change was to have an "off" switch for the balcony light, so we could sit outside in the evening and enjoy the stars and wildlife. They even have lightning bugs!!

    The plumbing will keep you up all night!


    I have stayed at this Clarion twice and both times, I had to put up with listening to the water from the shower and jacuzzi above. On my last stay I wasin room 201 on the very front of the Inn, and I could hear every car and truck that went by. Iwill stay at this Clarion again, but only if it is on the3rd floor and in the back. It is a very nice, but youjust have to be in on the right floor and in the rightlocation.

    A great place to sleep


    we have stayed at this hotel on 2 vacations in that area and

    could not have gotten better deal. very clean, safe,nice,quite. good breakfast with paid room. can't go wrong and will always stay here when in the area.

    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 ...

    ... how much Virginia drivers suck. It's like they have no idea whats going on. Virginia is not for lovers, its for bad drivers.

    2) I prefer the road when there is little to zero other cars. It is just way more enjoyable, and Toby likes it better when I don't have to turn off cruise control every few minutes.

    3) The south is really pretty, even when cloudy! But, boy can it rain hard!

    4) I think Toby only likes to ...

    Started early. Went to Starbucks then topped off at Supercharger. Stopped to charge at Tifton and Macon GA (where an ICE was in charging space) before arriving in Atlanta about 12:30. Chargers are located in Atlantic Station parking lot. About 20 chargers and half full. Never seen so many Teslas!! Had lunch there then scrambled to get out of Atlanta before traffic. Beautiful day and great time and drive until I pulled ...

    ... so we headed back. IT'S a big city, lots of U turns ( the norm ) we ended up in Market Square, having had something to eat watching the world go by. A group of university students arrived on bicycles all dressed up in red white and blue and including their bicycles, with drums in tow. They entertained us for over hour. Tiredness got the better of us, so we headed back, watching the fire works as we drove back to our ...

    ... green, reminds us of Germany.

    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.
