Needless to say, I ...

today is Waterfall challenge #2. This one was Grotto falls and only 3~ish miles and supposedly not so uphill. (This being a waterfall I was not going to be fooled by the promise of 'no' uphill...)

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.
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.
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.
The motel made me feel like a princess
The motel was the best motel i have ever stayed in and i would recomend it to anyone.I felt like a princess at this hotel
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.
