"Nice place to stay."
August, 2018 NEW
We stayed here for two nights recently and thought the motel was pretty nice for an older place to stay. The rooms seemed to have been updated some with new pillow top mattresses. the beds were comfortable after staying in some places where the beds were hard as a rock. I had trouble with a purchase in the vending machine, went into the office and it was taken care of immediately. Breakfast served every morning too was nice. Would stay here again when in Pigeon Forge.

"Mini Vacation"
August, 2018
My husband and I came down for a couple nights stay. The room was clean, updated and bed slept great! Location was right on the parkway and convenient. Price was very cheap which was a plus, however I felt that because of the cheap rate others staying there were of amoral character...this is the only reason I gave it a 3 star.

Tip: Great rooms and location as long as you dont mind being surrounded by amoral characters

"poor experience"
June, 2018
Thought a hotel offered in conjunction with Dollywood would have higher standards. Carpet was so dirty our feet looked like we walked thru a garden. Hot water handle fell off in shower. Shower had mold along seams in wall. Towels were in need of repair. No dogs allowed but hair all over carpet. Asked to have carpet vacuumed really well...didn't happen. Not a box of tissues anywhere. Never cleaned the sink in 3 days. No one in office after midnight till 8am. Said 24 hours on line.

"overall good"
June, 2018
The room was clean and the beds were very comfy! very quit! The stairs that are carpeted could be updated or at least vacuumed daily. The breakfast was good the only thing i wish they offered some healthy choices to fresh fruit maybe oatmeal yogurt would have been great! I would stay again.

My wife and friends like to ride motorcycles in the Smokies a couple times a year. The central location, parking garage, trailer parking, and multitude of restaurants within walking distance make Vacation Lodge an easy choice. Yes the motel is somewhat dated, but it is clean and comfortable. Surprise your wife with a suite with a fireplace and hot tube. You'll make her day.

"Pretty Solid Choice"
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

I've stayed here twice so far, both stays being several years apart. The most recent one was just this past August. The rooms have been renovated and are pretty nice. Housekeeping does a good job and everything was vacuumed, dusted, and tidy. They aren't the biggest but are adequate for the price. The biggest plus is they are quiet! Even though they face the outside, little noise came in and I didn't hear any noise above us. The staff is friendly and helpful. I can't speak for the breakfast or the pool since we have never utilized either of those, but I can say the pool area is clean and appeared to be quite popular during our stay. I was very happy to see not much other than the room decor had changed in between stays! I would absolutely not hesitate to stay here again as the location is fantastic and the prices are reasonable!

Stayed overnight in Pigeon Forge. I'm usually loyal to Hilton hotels but they were either booked or very expensive. The Vacation Lodge provided a clean, comfortable room for a great price. I would book with them again if I'm in the area in the future.

We have stayed at this location several times. Nice people, good location and very nice rooms. Courtney runs the breakfast room and she keeps everything well supplied and is always checking to see if we need something. Jessica checked on our room every day to see if we needed fresh towels or anything else. We will be back!
