Check in and out was great. Room service was bad. We had to go down to get toilet paper Kleenex and coffee. The floor in the room was filthy. They came in left towels and emptied trash and that was it. Breakfast was great on the weekend but Monday morning was terrible. Will not stay there again. Parking was terrible.

Clarion Inn , Gatlinburg

A little confusing to find at first as the sign outside says something different than the name of the hotel. Once there, we tried to check in early (they told us we could) and there were no rooms ready yet (it was almost 2, check in is at 3) once finally checked in around 5, we enter the room, it’s very clean & spacious. the beds were amazing & pillows were comfortable. however, the sink was plugged and water wouldn’t go down(with no way to unplug it) & the shampoo provided in the shower was out. the tv was also on 100 and you could barely hear it. overall, very nice place for the price paid. would stay here again! 🙂

Poor service

Foreign millennial at front desk does not know meaning of hospitality. She was not friendly at check in. After breakfast on morning I asked if there was anything that might get us a discount around town she looked at me odd and said I don’t know and rudely pointed to the brochure counter. We have a toddler and were there for a soccer tournament (pouring rain) and this is the first hotel that had not allowed a 30 late checkout- again same lady at the front desk.
