Reviewed yesterday NEW

Just stayed for one night so this review is a shor one. Great stay, close to everything (by car, obviously because this is the last hotel in Pigeon Forge), good facilities, nice staff and giant pancake breakfast. No window on my room (notice only in the morning - imagine how short was my stay)

I would give five stars but there was a couple things. One the wall outlets where very lose. If you tried to plug something in, it would just fall out. My wife and one of my daughters could not charge their phones because the plug would not stay in the wall. Yes I know this is small and stupid, but...

The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The room was clean. We didnt have any problems. Previous reviews had me questioning whether I would be driving to another hotel after checking in but I was pleasantly surprised. I'm very picky about where I lay my head but had a nice stay. Definitely top notch based on what I paid for...

When questioned about the purpose of the reservation, they were kind of non-committal, and offered her...

The lodge was okay, but I am glad it was for only one night. I only say this because it is needing some updates. What I mean updates is example of the bedding and maybe coat of paint etc. It reminds me of place that hasn't been updated since the 1980's.
