Historical Traveler Reviews La Quinta Inn Pigeon Forge
Nice nice nice
LaQuinta of Pigeon Forge is a wonderful oasis in the midst of a seriously crowded tourist destination. The management is exceptionally friendly; I don't think I have encountered this sort of hospitality in anything but the swankiest of hotels. But LaQuinta is just a great, clean, quiet and very reasonably-priced inn. I loved the cleanliness of the heated outdoor pool, plus the very relaxing hot tub right next door to it, and indulged myself with no one else around early one Saturday morning. You aren't aware of all the hulaballoo on the main road at all, a HUGE amenity in itself! You can buy your tickets to Dollywood at the hotel desk, and it will get you in the park for 2 days if you like! Thank you, LaQuinta, for being so nice, for running a class act and for making us feel like "important" guests!
Wonderful Hotel; Excellent Staff
I can't remember the last hotel I stayed at that was as nice as this one. The staff was GREAT and the hotel was very well maintained and very clean. Any time you walked by the front desk they always spoke to you and ask you how things were. The rooms were very clean and very accommodating and of course our pet was also free to stay with us. It was quiet at night which was a plus since we had a small child with us. The hotel was within walking distance to several restaurants as well as a few shops. It is set back off the main drag which is nice because I am sure that cuts down the "noise" in the evenings.
The only minor issue we saw was the breakfast area. It is rather small to sit down and enjoy a waffle but since my husband is on the Atkins diet we went out to eat anyway.
Highly recommend this hotel and its staff.
Extremely nice place to stay
My wife and I and another couple stayed at the LaQuinta for four nights in April, based largely on the reviews posted here. We've been to Pigeon Forge three times and this was by far the best hotel we stayed at (the others were a Quality and a Hampton Inn.) The rooms are quiet, clean and comfortable and are very well maintained. The continental breakfast is well done, including fresh waffles, and has a big enough selection to please most people, . What really sets the hotel apart is the staff--from the manager down, they are friendly, courteous and efficient. If I go back to Pigeon Forge, I will definitely stay at the LaQuinta.
Great place to stay
We spent 4 nights with our two teens and 2 dogs. Can't say enough how great the staff were and how welcome we felt. We had a family suite with a king bed in a seperate bedroom and the kids had 2 queen beds in their own room. This allowed us to have enough space to enjoy each other's company without feeling cramped. The breakfast buffet was a hit with the kids being able to make their own hot belgian waffles every morning ( and the Krispy Kreme donuts were a favorite)! The staff were extremely friendly and there is no charge for the pets. This allowed us to take the vacation we dreamed. Lots more to do in Pigeon forge than in Gatlinburg. The hotel is back off the strip so it is quiet . So glad we did not stay in Gatlinburg as we originally were looking at doing (too much chaos and noise in the city). This hotel is awesome and would not hesitate to come back again.
Now the La Quinta!!
You should note this is now the La Quinta Inn and Suites. I chose this hotel because they accept pets at no additional fee. The room was wonderful (microwave, refrig, coffeemaker, iron, ironing board etc) and the staff was very friendly and always greeted me when I walked through the lobby. The only drawback for pet owners is the hotel is 4 stories with interior corridors. Kind of a nuisance for those 2 a.m. walks!! All in all, the hotel is great, high above most hotels in the Pigeon Forge area. I would highly recommend it to anyone looking for a nice, inexpensive place to stay in Pigeon Forge.
Guesthouse Is Wonderful!
We stayed four nights at the Pigeon Forge Guesthouse and couldn't have been happier with the experience. We originally planned on staying in Gatlinburg, as we'd done before. We waited a bit too long, and the hotels in our "range" were booked solid the week we wanted to come, so I began checking out lodging in the Pigeon Forge area. We've had some unpleasant hotel experiences, so booking something sight unseen except for website pictures was a little nerve wracking! However, I absolutely applaud the Pigeon Forge Guesthouse for truth in advertising. The premises matched the website pictures and description. The hotel was very clean, and the staff and management could not have been friendlier or more helpful. The lobby was lovely and cozy, and the continental breakfast was great. For night owls who may not want to make coffee in the room (which was also very good), there is fresh coffee kept brewing in the lobby 24 hours a day! I would absolutely recommend this hotel and would stay there again! Thanks to everyone at the Guesthouse. Hope to see you next year!
The is an excellant motel! I stayed 2 nights it was very clean, the the staff was very friendly and helpful. It was a very quiet motel that sits just off of the main parkway and it is close to all the attractions in Pigeon Forge. It is just a short drive to the mountains from this motel. The rates are very reasonable and the breakfast was great also. I recommend a stay at this motel! I will definitely be going back!
Lots of comfort
Arrived with no reservations, tired and hungry. Staff was very helpful in supplying us with a clean, large, comfortable room. Hotel is very clean, staff freindly, returned two nights later and received a room upgrade.
Located off the Parkway on Emert St., quite and within walking distance to attractions.
We recently stayed at the Guesthouse for 3 nights -June 5-8. We needed a room with 3 beds and they had a nice 2 room 3 bed -room- The hotel was very clean and the people who manage it are very friendlly and helpful. We didn't use the pool as it was a little cool however it seems to be shared with the Motel 8 next door and could be small when the the hotels are full.
Good One !
the hotel is pretty good.......Good rooms and courteous staff. the free breakfast was good too. the location is also accessible to most attractions in and outside the national park.

... and tried some pancakes ( savoury and sweet ) which we shared. Picking up the car we headed back for Dollywood and Pigeon Forge. We had seen on the way through the Titanic museum so decided to go, very interesting two hours, we came out. CAR where had we put??? For a change we walked the car park, like everything in the U.S. It's big. We laughed and laughed. We had been told about a fire works display in Knoxville ...
... ago. We went on the Foothills Parkway around the West side of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We jumped on 321 in to Townsend and entered the GSMNP on Little River Road. We went to Gatlinburg rather than the planned stop in Pigeon Forge because of our late start and the threat of rain. Gatlinburg is a unique and interesting town: almost like a beach town/boardwalk minus the beach, but not very biker friendly. Parking is awful and some lots don't allow motorcycles and you ...
Lots of Pictures- Get a feel for the road. I took I 77 west to the tunnel which crossed into West Virginia and took SR-598 to Bluefield where you see the first great vista. 598 hits 19 s to Tazweil where Rt. 16 starts, "The Back of the Dragon". Wow what a ride. I followed 16 to Rt. 58 at the Log Cabin Store in the pictures. Rt. 58 was a surprise because I was expecting rolling curves and country riding ...
... cars as I know them. There was a variety of restored cars and hot rods. It was a variety that you could see at most car shows. I couldn’t really justify the $11 fee to see a bunch of cars that weren’t what I expected. I thanked the guy and left.
We then headed through Sevierville and before long we were in Pigeon Forge, another small town. Well, it was really more like a combination of several carnivals, Disneyland, Disneyworld, ...
Monday, April 13
Monday morning we got up, had our morning coffee and discussed where we would spend the day. We elected to head out to Cades Cove but had no idea how to get there except to head toward Gatlinburg. I couldn't find any addresses for the Visitors Center so we just headed on. We finally found a Visitors Center (by accident) and went in. They directed us toward Cades Cove where we went to ...
