Vacation Lodge Motel
Travel Blogs from Pigeon Forge
Started the day in Chattanooga and went of to see the Chattanooga Choo Choo..very ordinary and the station wasnt a patch on Nashvilles Union Station. We then went up the Mountain where all the action is, fantastic views over the city and at some points you are able to see 7 States. Peter went to Ruby Falls which I think was a waterfall inside a …
... most likely deviate from the planned route. However, much to my bitter disappointment we will not be diverting to Chattanooga to ride the incline. Oh well, a reason to comeback to Tennessee someday.
... all sorts of goodies. It was a kinda weird place.
The weirdest experience was a restaurant called 'Dick's Last Resort'. These restaurants are everywhere now that we are aware of them. We walked in to the restaurant and the guy was like 'Welcome to Dick's! Have you been before?' We were like 'No', he then said 'You have heard of us before right?', our response 'Nope'. 'His response 'So you've just ...
... below it. Now something was making the empty dirty bag dance up and down. I assumed a rodent was chewing on the handle straps, but when I got closer I saw that a little deer mouse was trapped inside the bag. Its futile attempts to scurry up the slick plastic to freedom were causing the noise.
“Oh you silly thing,” I whispered. “How did you get in there?”
I carefully let the mouse out on the floor of the shelter and it tottered off drunkenly ...
... the afternoon. (I napped, Chris read a computer book or something)
Tonight we had the Sach's over to our campsite for some Spaghetti Bolognese (or however that is spelled) Chris showed off his caveman fire building skills and also managed to throw away the brand new unopened box of Graham Crackers and Marshmallows we had purchased that day. Thank you very much sir.

Historical Traveler Reviews Vacation Lodge Motel Pigeon Forge
Clean and good price
i had been reading reviews on motels to decide where to stay that was clean and a good price. i stayed here one weekend becacause it was rated good on the internet and it was. i would defintley stay here again
The vacation lodge was alright
I did not like the fact that you had to share a balcony with someone else. It would have been alright if you shared it with somebody you know. I loved that you just had to walk right down the street and there was all kinds of stores and resturants and go karts!!I did not like that you had to pay for the ice. The main thing is that the people were friendly and that the rooms were clean!
Great place for the money and excellent location in the middle of everything.
Happy at Vacation Lodge.

This motel is great. It is clean and convenient.
We have stayed at the Vacation Lodge two times and we love it there. We would recommend it to anyone visiting Pigeon Forge. It has very clean rooms and the people are very friendly.
Wonderful Value and Clean
This is the best value in Tennesse. Family operatored means the claeanest rooms I have stayed in. Jst a block from Dollywood and the trolly stops at the front for easy town access. Just great.
For every trip to the Tennessee mountains I recommend the Vacation Lodge. The rooms are ALWAYS clean, the location could not be more convenient, and the staff is WONDERFUL. The rates are affordable, much more so than most,for the quality, and it is well lit (which means alot this day in time). Iwould like to say THANK YOU to the owners and staff for making our stay enjoyable.
We will be back!!
We normally stay in reasonably high priced Hotels because the rooms are generally nicer and the service up to par. However, family told us where they had made reservations in Pigeon Forge, and told us how reasonable the rates so we decided we'd give it a try. Boy, we were we surprised! We had been paying much too much in those other hotels! The Vacation Lodge is hands down the cleanest rooms we have ever stayed in and the staff the greatest!!! We will be back!
Nice but some problems
My husband and I recently chose to stay at Vacation Motor Lodge. For years visiting Pigeon Forge we had always passed by and saw people setting on the balconys watching the traffic so we finally decided we would be some of those people. I did not like the fact that we had to share the balcony with the room next door. We had to pay for the ice.
The in-room coffee pot still had leftover coffee in it when we checked in. The workers there were extremely friendly though.
Great place to stay!
For our summer vacations in Pigeon Forge, my family and I stay at the Vacation Lodge. This hotel is family owned and operated. The rooms are always clean, and the staff have always been very friendly and very helpful. It's directly across the street from the Food City, so we don't need to go far for groceries (we get rooms with the kitchenettes). It's also further down the parkway, so it's less traffic. The only drawback is since it's family owned, they do not offer discounts (not even AARP). However, I'd recommend this place to anyone!
