This is one of the best hotels that I have ever stay at the staff is very friendly and the rooms are very clean!!!! I have stayed two times at this hotel and will be returning...the rates are good considering that they are cheaper than the nasty hotel that I stay at and payed more for than I did at the Clarion!!! I recommend this hotel for any one and it is walking distant to every thing in Gatlinburg!!!!

Historical Traveller Reviews of Clarion Inn and Suites Hotel

clarion is ok

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was our first visit to Gatlinburg and we stayed at the Clarion Inn. Hotel room was clean, had a nice balcony but the room was on the small side for a family of four. Location is excellent - good restaurants and easy walking distance to many sights.

Nice but a bit pricey

from A TripAdvisor Member
It was very clean, rooms a bit small for 3 people and the price was too high; great pool but breakfast area was too small for large crowds; great selections at breakfast but food was only fair. Staff was super friendly and helpful. All rooms have nice balconies. Very close to Smokey Mtn. Park entrance and on the trolley line.

Very Comfortable Stay

from Fungrandma
We spent 6 nights at the Clarion and had a very nice time. We had a lovely room on the second floor with a balcony facing the street - which is great for people watching. The room was a little smaller than usual but we had 2 beds, 2 comfortable upholstered chairs and it was very clean - fine for 3 people. Breakfast was better that most, biscuits and sausage gravy, fresh fruit, Krispy Kreme donuts, bagels, cereals, pancakes, muffins. The breakfast area was quite congested at times but there was always a table available. The only things that weren't perfect was the unairconditioned corridors and elevator and the fact that the pool was only open until 10:00 pm - hardly worth mentioning. I would highly recommend the Clarion.

My wife and I have visited Gatlinburg several times a year for over 35 years. We have stayed at numerous nice places in the city but have come to prefer the Clarion Inn & Suites. We always stay in a two room suite on the front - very nice, although the rooms are a bit small. Especially nice at Christmas or in winter, with a fire in the lobby fireplace. Is located near everything, yet on the quieter end of the 'Burg (near the Park entrance.) A nice stroll to the center of town.

get the city view....quiet end of town

from A TripAdvisor Member
we stayed overnight to go to the aquarium. got a room on the 3rd floor, front side. clean room, decent size. had a nice little balcony overlooking the street. it is really close to the end of town so it is a little bit quieter BUT thats okay. good restaurants to pick from...texas roadhouse, maxwells, etc and one of THE best pizza joints right up the street. nice staff, trolley runs all the way down to the aquarium but it is within walking distance of most anything you want. had a good breakfast area and expanded continental breakfast included in price of room. only suggestion is pulling into the place to check in is a bit dicey....would stay again though for sure

very nice but my room was smaller than what I am used to

from angelfire8
We stayed here May 26th-May 30th, the room was very nice but smaller than what I am used to, I did let them know this at the front desk, also the room
had a air condtion leak which they did fix. This hotel is very close to many resturants that you can walk to and other attractions. The gift shop had just what we needed for a morning swim (snorkle & ear plugs) The pool has been renovated and has a glass house surrounding it, also has a changing area and bathrooms right by the pool. Hotel is right next to the park grill. Also, housekeeping does a great job!! Front desk very nice and will help you with all your needs. You also get a free breakfast every morning.

Nice, Nice, Nice!!!

from deskclerk102
This place is great. It is one of the nicest places in Gatlinburg, and definately the nicest place i've stayed in my many years of traveling to the smokies. There is a heated indoor pool and hot tub and the rooms have private balconies. The rooms on the street side of the building are great for people-watching from the nalcony. The staff is excellent and the continental breakfast was wonderful. The room was delightful. The rates are upscale, but reasonable.

Negatives: None, really. The heated pool is in a separate building, so you might get chilly going back to the room - A minor issue.

Highly recommend!

Suites - The Best

from A TripAdvisor Member
We visit Gatlinburg at least once a year and have stayed at the Clarion each time since they first opened. It is close to most everything you would want to visit and the best restaurants in town are within walking distance. My husband is in a wheelchair and their staff have always gone above and beyond to assist us with making him comfortable. We have become good friends with some of the staff and it is like visiting family when we are there. Breakfast is served every morning as part of your room cost and is very good with a great variety of breakfast foods. I also love visiting the Thomas Kinkade gallery in the lower portion of the hotel. All around great experience - you can't go wrong here.

Great staff

from A TripAdvisor Member
This hotel is newer and nicer than most on the Parkway. It is out of the center of town but walking distance to everything. Great restaurants surround it. The staff was absolutely the most courteous I have encountered in all my travels. I will stay here the next time I go to Gatlinburg.

Loved the Clarion

from A TripAdvisor Member
This was our first stay at the Clarion and it was wonderful. This is our anniversary trip and we've been trying to find a wonderful place to spend our anniverary. We have stayed in several motels but found the Clarion to be great. We had a suite w/couch bed, fireplace, bedroom had a king bed and hot tub, two balonies from each room overlooking the city. Very clean, couch had a small tear, had a wet bar/refrigerator, microwave but it was quite. Church youth groups were there but found them to be very considerable of their noise. We didn't even know they were there as like last year when the youth group at another motel pulled the fire alarm 5 times. Clarion is situated where you can walk anywhere which we enjoyed very much. We won't have to worry about trying out a different motel next year, we'll definitely be at the Clario. We have found our motel for our future anniversaries.
