Historical Traveler Reviews BEST WESTERN Plaza Inn Pigeon Forge
Big Rooms, Very Clean
This hotel is really nice. The pictures make it look old, and while it is on the older side, it was remodeled about 5 years ago. The rooms are bigger than your typical standard room, it is extremely clean and the breakfast is really good for it being free. It is very close to Gatlinburg and a Trolly Pick-Up Station is right outside. We walked to the Dixie Stampede because it is just next door. The hotel has it's own breakfast cafe so you don't have to eat in the lobby. I would recommend this hotel to anyone. They have a variety of rooms. Some rooms have a jacuzzi, a fireplace and multiple bedrooms, others have a mountain view. We really enjoyed our stay and wouldn't hesitate to stay there again. If you don't mind not staying in Gatlinburg, this is a great place.
Favorite motel in Pigeon Forge
This was my third stay at the Plaza Inn in Pigeon Forge. Is the best deal in the area. Had balcony room in back with view of mountains. Wonderful view. This motel is very quiet and peaceful. Wonderful pools (3 of them). Very clean. It is not fancy but has everything you need. Micro/fridge, coffee, big TV's. Very reasonable rates. Will always stay at the Plaza Inn on my yearly trip to the Smokys.
Had A Great Time
We just got back from a three night stay at the Best Western Plaza Inn. The hotel was very clean and nice. They offer three swimming pools, two outdoor and one indoor. However, the indoor pool was a mad house with children and it was relatively small. We spent about 5 minutes there and that was all we could take. The two outdoor pools are very nice and the hot tub at the back pool is larger than the other hot tub and very, very nice. The hotel is located very conveniently to everything in Pigeon Forge. There are restaurants across the street and on about a block or so down on each side. We had a room with two queen beds and it was very nice and comfortable. They offer a continental breakfast, but don't expect a lot. They offered toast, english muffins, donuts and cereal when we were there. However, they have a porch off of the restaurant where you can sit outside and eat which was really nice. All in all I would highly recommend this hotel and we will probably stay here again when we return.
This trip was super spur of the moment. We were already about an hour and a half from home when my husband, on a whim, heads south. It took us about three more hours to get there. Fortunately, there is a Super Wal-mart on the right as you enter Pigeon Forge. Mom and Dad have stayed at the Plaza several times, so we went straight there because we didn't have time to be choosy. We only got to stay the one night, but I'll take what I can get.
We went to Ripley's Aquarium in Gatlinburg and visited an amusement park, but our 4 and 2 year olds' favorite part was the pools at the hotel - 2 outdoor and one indoor with waterfalls, kids pools, and hot tubs.
The room was super clean, big and we were happy to be there. There was a fireplace, fridge, microwave and room to move. The only thing that I could say we had any trouble with was that the air was understandably off in the room when we checked in a little after midnight. It took about two hours for it to get to a comfortable temperature.
STAFF AND BREAKFAST
The hotel staff was extremely nice and allowed us to check out as late as could possibly be allowed since we arrived so late and we were only there one night. The continental breakfast was nice and the lady working it that morning was a peach. The breakfast area is beside the river.
Yes, Yes, Yes
Loved the Best Western Plaza Inn
After checking several hotels once we arrived in Pigeon Forge, we decided to stay at the Best Western Plaza Inn. It was the best choice we had ever made. The rooms were very clean, housekeeping was on the ball everyday. We liked having the refrigerator, microwave, coffee-pot and iron and ironig board in the room. I would suggest anyone that is going to Pigeon Forge stay at this hotel, I know that we will on our return visits.

Best Western Plaza Inn.
We had the best time staying at this Hotel. The staff was excellent. The house-keeping did a great job in our room. The free breakfast was excellent.
My Home Away From Home
I have stayed in this hotel dozens of times over the years. It has become a home away from home for my family. We love staying in the upper floors of the new wing which offers a grand view of Clingman's dome and easy access to any of the hotel's 3 pools. The indoor pool-view rooms are lovely and come with gas fireplaces - an excellent choice for a brisk fall or Christmas visit. The hotel is also within easy walking distance of the Little Pigeon River and the Dixie Stampede. I wouldn't stay anywhere else in the Smokies!!
Stayed here several times
We have stayed here several times during the years. We always stay at the Best Western Plaza. It has always been an OK hotel. It is not anything special, but it is an average hotel room. (I am very picky.) The King bed suites are the best. There are several restaurants and attractions near by.
We had terrible key cards,when we got there we could not open our door we had a maid try and she could not open it,finally my husband had to go back to the check in and get someone tnere to come open our door.The whole weekend we were there it took forever to get the door to unlock.I didn,t want to go out to the pool because I was afraid I would not be able to get in without going for help again.

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 …

There were lots of gift shops and many places to eat. There does not appear to be anything left of the old town. We decided to go on the ski lift which we enjoyed even though Maggie does not like heights, Realising we felt hungry we stopped at a famous ...

We wanted to go to the Hillbilly Harley store but after getting our bikes out of the lot, driving through main street with all the stops from the traffic lights and pedestrians we arrived there to see they had no parking of their own and we'd have to pay again. We decided it wasn't worth it and went all the way back through Gatlinburg into the park to continue south on 441. We skipped several nice lookouts because we (I) wanted to go to Clingman's Dome which is ...

On the return trip, we had to backtrack along the park road for about five miles before we got to Highway 73, which would take us on the loop road that avoids the town of Gatlinburg and about half of Pigeon Forge. We really didn’t want to deal with the traffic again and it also took us through places we had not ...

She said it was very difficult to teach kids spelling words using phonics because of the way they talk in these parts. For example… the kids want to spell “little” like the way they say it… liddle.
