We have stayed all over the Sevierville- Pigeon Forge-Galtinburg area. Keep in mind also we are local residents who like to go and stay out in town on most weekends just because we like to get away from our busy weekly work routine. Sean is the gentleman who runs Big Bear and he is very centered on excellent customer service.... More

Stayed here for 2 weeks this time last year and it wasn't the best. Price wise, compared to other non weekly rate hotels in the area it was much cheaper. Called end of 2012 to make my reservation to find out it was under new management. I was excited to compare my previous stay with this one. Upon arrival the... More

We found this hotel to be the best in the area. We chose this hotel because it has a kitchen, large refigerator and a guest laundry. The staff was very friendly and the rooms are clean and well equiped. We will stay here again in January when we will be back in the area.

Big Bear was created for the persons that were working in the area but needed a place that could seem like home. We are glad that we were here for you and we hope to see you again. More

Big Bear is behind a Quality Inn with same management and you check in with Quality Inn personnel. We were given keys and upon driving back commented it looked as if the Big Bear was closed.

My husband and I visit the East Tennessee area several times a year and have found the main parkway area just to congested anymore. The location of Big Bear is easy to get to and out of the congestion. We found the close proximity to I-40 to be an advantage as we did travel into Knoxville and the Tri-Cities area.... More
