We've stayed many places in Gatlinburg, and this is the best so far. The hotel is situated on the end of town going towards the Great Smokey Mountains National Park, making it out of the way of most of the hustle and bustle. However, it is still close enough to walk to all of the downtown attractions that Gatlinburg has...

We had gotten away for a girls weekend. We had never stayed in this location before, but wanted to be close to downtown Gatlinburg. The hotel staff was friendly when we checked in and helpful. The room was a little old, but very clean and comfortable. The only bad thing was the light from our balcony shined into the room...

While not in the center of the action in Gatlinburg, we were able to walk everywhere we wanted to be pretty quickly. We needed a pack and play for the baby and they provided one. The staff were very accomodating. The room was very clean. Multiple items on the free breakfast offered, including made to order omelets, blueberry waffles, biscuits,...

When we arrived at the hotel and went to check in we were overcharged $47.00. When we questioned them about it they told us we were charged $15.00/night for Hotel fees.

2nd time in 10 years staying in the Clarion. Location, location, location is awesome! Walk out the front door to eat, play, or relax! Front desk staff was very cordial and helpful. No problems with check-in or check-out. Room was clean and a nice size. However, it's time for some updating with the room decor, Pool area and exercise room.

We stayed at this location from August 1 - August 6 and had a great stay. It may be the best location for a hotel in Gatlinburg honestly.

This was the newest and cleanest motel on the strip. I had an opportunity to check out most of the motels on the strip and they were all outdated and musky smelling. the only other decent motel was the Hamption inn and they were more expensive and not as nice as the Clarion.
