"The room was clean, and the hotel clerk was nice. Ask for a room with a view; my window looked out on the back parking lot.2015-12-13"
"Nice, clean hotel. The room was big and clean. Ask for a mountain view room. We arrived early and the clerk said it would require an "enormous" upgrade to change rooms, but the clerk on duty when we returned had no problem with moving us to a room with a better view. I'd stay here again.2015-12-05"
"The hotel needed upgrading, though the employees were great.2015-05-30"
"The hotel was run-down, the room smelled like urine, and there were large spots on the carpet. There was hair in the sink. No hot breakfast; instead we got a discount at the restaurant next door; our breakfast for 2 cost $32. Not a good value, and not what we expected. Stay somewhere else.2021-10-24"
"We had to call the hotel multiple times before someone answered; we wanted to let them know we'd be arriving late. No problems otherwise.2021-08-19"

"This was my worst hotel experience ever. The room reeked of cigarette smoke, and the room was always either too hot or too cold. The phone, bathroom exhaust fan, and hair dryer didn't work. One side of the receptacle in the bathroom didn't work. I mistakenly left a blanket behind; I called and was told it would be mailed back to me, but after not hearing anything, I called back and was told the manager said it couldn't be mailed back to me. I'll never stay here again.2020-02-10"
"Our stay went well until the AC went out. There were no other rooms available. The hotel refunded the room rate, but kept the pet fees for nights we didn't stay.2016-06-26"
"Economical. The hotel was pet-friendly and had a strong pet odor. The room and front desk service were good.2016-05-21"
"About 20 miles from Pigeon Forge. We arrived at the hotel after midnight, and the front desk clerk was rude and short with me when I asked questions. Our room wasn't serviced during our 3-night stay, and we never got fresh towels. I'll never stay here again.

"I expected a more extravagant hotel for the price. Fairly quiet room with average furnishings. The bed was clean but not especially comfortable. But the balcony was nice, and the people-watching was great. We couldn't figure out how to operate the Kuerig coffee maker, but coffee was available in the lobby 24 hours a day. The sound of a man's voice from the amusement ride across the street was annoying at night; the same tape played every time the ride started. Good breakfast with generous portions. Not special enough to warrant the rates; we'll look for an alternative next time.2016-07-11"

"Fairly close to the convention center. The hotel room was clean, and I received fresh linens every day. All the employees were cordial and helpful. Breakfast was good and fresh. The only thing we didn't like was the trolley service schedule to the convention center. Other than that, we had a good stay.2017-10-06"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
