Holiday Inn Express Hotel and Suites Pigeon Forge

Hotel | "Holiday Inn Express/Pigeon Forge"

Quote:
It is a moderately priced, very clean, and pet friendly hotel with many restaurants nearby. It's a little more costly during July especially. Center for attractions and shopping. There's another Holiday Inn in Gatlinburg, TN, about 3 miles away. The one in Gatlinburg has a restaurant that is quite reasonable, and is pet friendly too, it is located in center of Gatlinburg.

The best Southern breakfast anywhere. Great country ham, eggs, pancakes, homemade biscuits, and country gravy. There is buffet for lunch with fresh local veggies, fried chicken, and meatloaf. The ladies that work here are like your grandmother, so friendly and sweet as can be.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park

Attraction | "Great Smoky Mtns National Park"

Cades Cove is the earliest settled region, it still has original houses and churches. A drive through the area with hiking trails offers great picture taking opportunities. You can see bears, deer, and other animals. It's nestled in the valley with the Great Smoky's around you. Breath taking!
