Historical Traveler Reviews Park Tower Inn Pigeon Forge
Great Inexpensive Family Place
We chose this hotel over another we usually stay in to try something different. Our package company suggested this hotel so before I would agree I went to TripAdvisor to read reviews.
At the time I think only one was negative and it made a comment about bad towels. Well I thought if that was the only problem I could live with that also a later posting commented that the towels were fine. Well they were just ok a little thin but they got you dry, this really should be expected from a place this busy with a lot of water activity.
As far as the water part, a decent pool and hot tub, but the best feature of this place (especially if you have kids) is the indoor lazy river. My 12 year old loved it.
The staff was also very nice, stayed there 3 nights, no problems. Skipped maid service but asked housekeeping daily for towels and anything else needed, they were very nice about accomidating me. The breakfast bar was great not just donuts and toast but much more, never left unsatisfied.
This is not a 5 star hotel but it is a great 3 star and a fairly good 4 star in my book.
We stayed here because the price was unbeatable and we were all young and wanted to be close to everything. The room was nice and had a nice balcony. The bathroom you cant turn around in. The pool, lazy river, and hot tub are awesome though, but over run with kids, which sucks when you arent one or dont have one. But when we went to the "Free" Continental breakfast we went about an hour and a half before it was over, and there was no bread, no cereal, there was just fruit and bagles, which we dont eat, so we asked the person working it and they told us we were out of luck!!!! Never will we stay there again!!
A very family-friendly place!!!
My husband, three sons, and myself just returned from Pigeon Forge. We stayed at the Park Tower Inn. I read the reviews before our trip and knew I would be writing one as well after we returned home. The room we stayed in was very clean. The towels were just fine. The pools were nice. The lazy river was also a nice touch. The only thing about the inside pool and lazy river was as soon as I stepped into the room, the chlorine irritated my eyes a bit. The staff was friendly. We will definitely stay there again. I was impressed with this hotel. I hope this helps! :0)
This Is The Best Place To Stay
After having an aweful experience at another hotel previous in the day, we were so happy to find the Park Tower Inn. The room was fantastic, the staff, even better. We enjoyed the lazy river. Our kids loved the pools. Everything was clean and wonderful. We will be staying here again if and when we return to Pigeon Forge.
We have stayed at the Park Tower a few times over the years and have always found it to be very nice. It is about 10 years old with a newer addition that was built about 5 or 6 years ago. It has been well maintained and the rooms have always been clean when we were there. I will admit that the towels and washcloths could use an upgrade, but that's not uncommon in tourist-town motels. They have a nice breakfast with the usual items (no eggs or sausage:-). The indoor pool is nice and the hot tub and lazy river are a nice touch. The Park Tower is one block off of the Parkway, roughly in the center of town. Most of the rooms have private balconies, although they are only separated by railing. So, although access to the balcony is private, don't expect true privacy from your neighbor. Rates vary from a bit steep in the Summer and Fall (typical in the smokies) to dirt cheap in the Winter and Spring. Overall, I would say the Park Tower is still a good choice in Pigeon Forge.
Extremely Dissappointed :(
Well, after the glowing reviews that the Park Tower got from other vacationers, I decided to give it a try. When we checked in, everything looked fine in the lobby, and we thought that the Park Tower would live up to the other reviews.
Unfortunately, when we got into the room, the floor needed vacuuming (there were bobby pins and other trash on the ground).
It was only after stepping out of the shower and reaching for the towel rack that I noticed that the towels were extremely small and paper thin. BUY SOME NICE LINENS PEOPLE!
This hotel was built as cheaply as possible. All the furniture, fixtures, and accessories in the place have to be the cheapest possible items they could find. The hotel isn't that old, and the carpet in our room (518) already needs replacing.
When we were checking out, the clerk at the front desk asked how everything was. My wife told her everything that I mentioned above, and the clerk's response was, "Okay, have a nice day." The clerk didn't even care!
I guess if you are looking for a pricey (we paid $98.00 with tax), cheaply built hotel with thread-bare linens and an unfriendly staff, then look no further - stay at the Park Tower Inn.
As for me, I'll never stay there again. There are pleanty of newer, nicer, cleaner hotels in the immediate area.
Hope this review helps. 8^)
Park Tower is #1..the best in Pigeon Forge!
If you are planning a trip to Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, my family and I highly recommend Park Tower Inn. We've staid here several times over the years and have been pleasantly satisfied each time. Not only are the rooms spacious, clean, and full of amenities but the staff is wonderful and friendly and have always provided quick service. You'll discover an indoor and outdoor pool along with jacuzzis and you'll be very surprised to find an indoor lazy river, something you don't see in a lot of hotels in the Smokies. The continental breakfast is exceptional (cereal, coffee, and such). And if you don't want to leave the hotel to enjoy the things the mountains has to offer you can either splash in the pools, relax in the lazy river and jacuzzis (in-room jacuzzis are optional), or spend your time in the hotel's exercise, spa, or game rooms. I don't think it's possible for Park Tower to receive a terrible review!! Take my word for it, Park Tower is definitley #1 in the Smokies!! If I'm not mistaking the website is --- ...take a look!
Love This Hotel!!!
Everytime that my hubbay and I go to the smokies we always stay here, we love it!!! The only thing is, is last time the fire alarm went off at like 8 am. Another guest there said that it had happened to them before.. But dont let that stop you from going, it is cheap in price, but not in value!! It is the greatest hotel in the smokies...!!!
Loved the Inn
Best Hotel I have ever stayed in. Great large rooms, very clean rooms. Awesome pools and lazy river. Awesome Breakfast. Polite staff. We have stayed here twice. This is the only place I will stay at in the smokies. Plan on being back in December of this year.
Loved the park tower & lazy river great for kids
It was one of the cleanest hotels I have been in. The indoor pool & lazy river were clean & nice in size. The rooms were clean with no odors. The shower was one of the cleanest I have ever seen. I was very pleased with my stay & plan to stay again.
The only thing that I didn't like was the exercise room which wasn't what you would think it to be, very very small.

... floods and devastation. A lot has happened while we've been away but we have been proud of the way our state has rebounded and are moving forward.
We're excited to be getting home tomorrow. We’ve been very fortunate through all our travels and have enjoyed sharing our adventures with our friends and family. We’re glad I wrote the blog because it’s already hard to remember some of the names of places we’ve been!
... the 25th year of the German reunification (1989). They were expecting thousands of people in Frankfurt and we actually ( on Saturday night) watched the major event on the TV. Dinner was at a very small local eatery where we had pork and potatoes ( of course) and wine. We sat at long wooden table with benches..family style. A neighborhood German place full of locals and fun to experience. We returned "home" and settled down for the night.
... YEEUCH! The rain was so bad at times I couldn't see a thing and found myself peering around my screen looking for the white line on the side of the road just to see where we were headed. It was not a comfortable ride at all. As Jude said, we used our imagination on what it would have looked like, especially in the fall. This is a ride I would live to come back and do. Of note, at the foot of the Cherohala, there is a visitor ...
... I know it is very hard for Ed to be "OK" with me going...across the ocean without him....knowing I don't speak a word of Spanish....hiking without a guide!!! (I can't even drive to Pittsburgh by myself for goodness sakes!!!) ....hard for him not being there to "protect" me. I am so grateful that he has the confidence in me....to encourage me to go...be safe...also to encourage me to cherish and enjoy every day of the journey....and ...
