They advertised WiFi which basically only worked in our room sporadically. I am mean basically hardly at all. The pool was disgustingly gross. My kids said it was oily with hair all in it. The breakfast was eatble but eggs and sausage were not very appetizing.No fruit choices. Most of the staff was accommodating with the exception a rude night shift clerk Laura who hung up on me when I complained about the WiFi not working. I wouldn't stay there again.
Tip: Gross pool and bad WiFi

"Clean and Convenient"
August, 2016
This was our first time at Island Drive Lodge. It was clean and very convenient. We were able to walk to Paula Deans and the Island,also to other shops and the Dixie Stampede and did not have to worry about parking. Nothing fancy, but it serves the purpose

"Nothing to brag about but ok"
July, 2016
We had 4 people in our room. We had to go to the front desk every evening and ask for a fourth towel. so everyone would have a clean towel for showers. Then my daughter left her teddy bear in the room when we checked out. Took us 4 calls to them after we got home to get answer if they had found it. They finally said yes. But it's been 2 weeks and just heard from someone to mail it to us for $14.
Tip: It's an ok hotel if you just want to have somewhere to sleep. That's all we did.

"Misdirection Island Drive Lodge, Pigeon Forge, TN"
August, 2015
The hotel is rather ran down and the pool is s joke, but the location is right on the main strip. However, my complaint is not on the hotel, rather how they conduct business with the local attractions. They sold me the wrong package to Dollywood, which is rather expensive. I could have thought this a simple mistake. This until, I went to the very same front desk where I bought said tickets. Of course by the end of the day there is a different customer service agent. She, Makayla, undoubtedly has the worst service I have ever experienced, even in a tourist town. She flat or told me, "All we do is take your money!", super professional, right? Then, she told me she can't help and gave me the number to the closed office that could assist. She only offered an apology upon my request. Next, she repeatably refused to get management upon my request. Lastly, she gave me two different numbers for a customer service or complaint line. She is rude, unprofessional, and lacks compassion for customers. I will be talking to management tomorrow and hopefully the owner of this establishment can straighten out the error with the tickets. I'm just trying to ensure my children have a good vacation.
Tip: Do not use this hotel, and certainly don't buy tickets for local attractions through the hotel, but only from the attraction itself.

Noticed the second day what looked like mold on ceiling tile. Told front desk that morning. Stopped by to drop a couple things off. Nothing had been done. Stopped by later in the evening. Showed the front desk the picture and he wrote something on a log book. Mentioned as we checked out and a lady spoke up and said they had sprayed it with clorox and wiped it down. Everyone knows if they had sprayed it with clorox we would have smelt it and the room being closed all day would have made it unbearable. Also there were 3 of us and only two wash clothes. Ever tried washing with hand towels. Asked twice for more wash clothes and finally on our third night (last night) we had three wash clothes. Overall staff was nice and grounds and rooms were clean except for the one tile. And it was like they were in no rush to take care of.

It was across the street from the island. Breakfast was included but the gravy was too salty. Bed's could have been more comfortable. There was construction on 3rd floor,so got woke up early morning,if you want to be woke up early each day,I recommend staying elsewhere

Check in was pleasant, staff very friendly. Room was adequate for the price and location great. One bed was very squeaky and a bit uncomfortable. Not many amenities, but surprisingly quiet in the evening.

"Rod run."

Reviewed May 25, 2017 NEW
Room was average. A little expensive for what you get but it was rod run weekend. Nothing special but was not expected to be. Room was clean but dated. Parking was at a premium due to the cars. They didn't save enough spaces for their regular guests. Internet didn't work.
