The 10 best hotels in Pigeon Forge

Discover the best hotels in the Smoky Mountains town of Pigeon Forge handpicked by Margaret Littman.
Margaret Littman
December 6, 2023

Nearly 13 million people checked out Great Smoky Mountains National Park in 2022. (That’s more than Yosemite, Yellowstone and the Grand Canyon combined.) I get why it’s the country’s most popular national park: it’s a real four-season destination, with wildflowers in the spring, firefly shows in summer, changing foliage in fall, and snow-capped mountains in winter. Its peaks offer challenges for those who want to test themselves, but many of the best mountain vistas are accessible to all. The trifecta of towns that surround the Tennessee entrance to the park are packed – and I mean that literally, they’re crowded – with family-friendly fun. The nearby Tennessee towns of Gatlinburg, Sevierville and Pigeon Forge cater to those many families checking out the park, as well as those who want to enjoy theme parks, mini golf, and other attractions. Here are some picks for the best hotels in Pigeon Forge that will give your family a warm Smoky Mountains welcome.

1.

Dollywood's DreamMore Resort

Address:

2525 Dreammore Way

Price:

$222-1156/night

Dolly Parton is the Smokies’ most famous former resident. She built her Dollywood amusement park and resort to give her family and friends job opportunities in East Tennessee. DreamMore is the resort’s traditional hotel, featuring lots of her signature flourishes (butterfly décor is everywhere, for example, and there’s a wall of her album art).
Like most Pigeon Forge-area hotels, the resort is family-friendly, with s’mores by the campfire each night, indoor and outdoor swimming pools, shuttles to the amusement park, and lots of dining opportunities with kid-friendly meals.
But DreamMore, named for Dolly’s inspirational attitude, also does justice to the beauty of the mountain setting. Many rooms have views of the landscape and to me, there’s nothing like sitting on an Adirondack chair on the porch watching the sun set behind the mountain range to relax me at the end of a fun-filled day.

2.

The Inn on the River

Address:

2492 Parkway

Price:

$119-308/night

It looks like a fairly standard hotel, basically nondescript when you’re driving down the crowded Parkway. But when I parked, I noticed that the Inn on the River has several features that distinguish it from its neighbors.
One of my favorite little details is that to find your room, you’ll look for a room number that’s marked with a charming photo of a black bear. As its name suggests, the hotel sits on the banks of the West Prong of the Little Pigeon River, and some rooms overlook it, buffering you from the sound of the Parkway.
Choose from rooms with in-room hot tubs and fireplaces, or those with sleeper sofas to accommodate extra kids. The hotel offers kid-centric amenities such as arts and crafts, sundae-making, and free breakfast. The central location makes it easy to get to many of Pigeon Forge’s amusements and attractions.

3.

Music Road Resort Hotel and Inn

Address:

303 Henderson Chapel Road

Price:

$132-335/night

Music Road Resort Hotel & Inn is actually two hotels on one connected resort property. Stay in either building and you’ll have access to the small lazy river, water slides, indoor and outdoor pools, laundry facilities, and the arcades with game rooms.
Like many Pigeon Forge hotels, this resort is well-suited to families who want to enjoy the area’s theme parks and attractions. Conference center space also makes it a good pick for those traveling to the area for business meetings. The pool is open 24-hours, which makes for fun nighttime swims and a point of difference between Music Road and other area hotels.
Some rooms have views of the water park and others of the Little Pigeon River. The hotel is well-located to Pigeon Forge’s main attractions and to the Parkway and offers free parking. The lobby of the inn is charming and sets it apart from standard chain hotels.

4.

The Inn At Christmas Place

Address:

119 Christmas Tree Lane

Price:

$232-416/night

Pigeon Forge loves a theme. From the restaurants to the shops, there’s always some kind of narrative thread to tell a story to keep kids and parents engaged. So, it’s no surprise that one of Pigeon Forge’s most popular hotels is Christmas-themed. That’s right: at The Inn at Christmas Place, it is as if December 25 comes 365 days a year. This is one of the more unique hotels in Pigeon Forge.
You get all the standard hotel amenities – a gym, Wi-Fi, and an outdoor pool. And you also get all that December holiday goodness, including year-round Christmas decorations inside and out (you’ll notice the hotel as you drive by), a singing Santa, Christmas carols, and even cookies before you go to bed (just like St. Nick).
In addition to the Yule-time theme, the hotel is well located on the Parkway, close to trolleys, shopping, restaurants, and other attractions.

5.

Black Fox Lodge Pigeon Forge, Tapestry Collection by Hilton

Address:

3171 Parkway

Price:

$146-582/night

Book a room at Black Fox Lodge and you’ll have a central home base for exploring the city’s attractions. The hotel is downtown, right on the Parkway that is lined with amusements (I love how this road is full of neon and a replica of the Titanic, and then eventually it is the road that also takes you into the national park).
The Parkway often backs up with traffic, so it is particularly nice that you can walk from Black Fox Lodge to the Island and other Pigeon Forge restaurants and attractions. Décor is befitting of a mountain lodge, with a stone fireplace in the lobby and a fire pit outside for enjoying mountain air.
The outdoor pool is decked out with a water slide and fountain so kids can cool off in the summer. Some rooms have balconies overlooking the Little Pigeon River.

6.

Margaritaville Island Inn

Address:

2735 Parkway

Price:

$174-482/night

People love Pigeon Forge’s Island, a downtown neighborhood with a Ferris wheel, restaurants, arcade games, a ropes course, and other attractions to keep the whole family entertained. Actually, staying on the Island, rather than walking or driving to it feels a little like staying in a resort, and you’re already located where everyone else wants to be.
Margaritaville Island Inn is one of two Margaritaville hotels on the Island. This one is the larger high-rise, with its own pool, free breakfasts, and other amenities, including free parking, which is an in-demand commodity on the Island (I’ve spent a lot of time just walking to my car from the Island). Most rooms have their own balconies, overlooking either the mountain landscape, the Island activity, or both.

Margaritaville Island Hotel

Address:

131 The Island Drive

Price:

$185-535/night
