Home 2 Suites Pigeon Forge

I could not be more thrilled to experience the Home 2 Suites Pigeon Forge hotel.  This hotel has the perfect location.  Walking distance to The Island but far enough away to avoid any crowd congestion during peak hours.

Brand New and opened in May 2017 this Hotel still has the brand new feel about it and is balanced by friendly, experienced, local staff. I felt comfortable and welcome.   Nestled on a hill above the Island parking lot and The LaConte Centre, it is in a prime location for viewing the beautiful pristine Smoky Mountains. Location is important to me whether I am on vacation or away on business, I like to be close to everything without risking my view of the Great Smoky Mountains. This hotel gave me exactly that.

Home 2 Suites Pigeon Forge Rooms

The hotel has 107 rooms spread across 4 floors.  You can choose between a King studio suite or a 2 Queen Beds suite for your stay.  All rooms have a single sleeper sofa.  Handicap accessible rooms are available but the suggestion is to make sure and request this prior to arrival.  Im really loving that divider curtan between the bed and the sofa in case you did share a room with kids…..or parents.  The beds have wrinkle-free sheets.  Where can I buy these??!

Dont be fooled by the lighting in the room.  Its pretty substantial.

Kitchen

This is a great hotel for those that want a “home” feeling without having to clean during your stay.  Kitchen has cutlery, coffee mugs, plates, full fridge, microwave, dishwasher.  You can bring your own

You have a wonderful of the Ferris Wheel and lucky enough to see parts of the dancing lights around the fountain.

Breakfast hours in case you really want to schedule your early morning.

Breakfast Hours

Food was great!  It didnt just look so clean and appetizing but it actually tasted wonderful.  Ok enought about the food, lets move on.  Remember how I mentioned they place great importance on the environment?

Im thankful for this.  I love the Smoky Mountains and want to do everything I can to preserve them.

Pools

The Home 2 Suites has 2 pools.  The outdoor pool is small but makes up for it in large amenities including a water slide and splash mushroom.

Outdoor Pool Area

Big fun for kids or adults.  I may have tried the slide.  I may have enjoyed it.  I may have tried it 4 times.  Lots of outdoor seating to accommodate several families but you also have a great alternative in case it rains.  This is one of the few hotels in Pigeon Forge that also has an indoor pool.

Not too terribly large for swimming laps but perfect for guests with kids wanting to swim during the rain or winter snow.

Firepit

I wish I had collected a night photo of the firepit with the mountain background but that would just be too perfect.  A beautiful patio outside with a fire pit will help you relax with family and friends and perhaps make new ones.

Firepit and courtyard area seating

Meeting Space

If you are looking for a small company retreat, the hotel has meeting space for about 25 people.  The tables transform into ping pong to excite those boring meetings. Was that comment out loud?  The meeting space is just shy of 703 sq ft.

Meeting room with interchangeable ping pong tables

Leaving this right here because she is awesome.  Call her with group needs of 10-100 rooms. Tell her DW Parks and More sent you.

Spin2Cyle

The concept is the fitness center and laundry facilities are in the same room to allow you to accomplish 2 things at one time avoiding more carbon footprints.  Bring on the multitasking!

If working out on a trip is your thing then they have that covered too with their gym. The room has multiple machines and different sizes and types of weights and benches. You can watch tv as you work work or try to keep your mind off the pain as I say.

Guest Laundry Area

A guest laundry room, in fact a very clean guest laundry room with coin operated machines. Dont forget your quarters. $2.50 to wash and $2 to dry.  A 3 pack of Tide Laundry Detergent can be purchased for $3.50.

24/7 Market

The Market area is located to the right beside the check in desk as you enter the hotel.  You can buy anything from last minute sodas to toothpaste to microwavable meals or that Tide we just talked about.

The market is located to the left of the desk

The staff here is unbelievable. Very welcoming and helpful regardless of how many times you call and bug them before your vacation.

Home 2 Suites Pigeon Forge Wrap-up

I would stay here again in a heartbeat.  You can walk to the Island from the hotel.  You will have to cross the road into the parking lot but total time should not take more than 7 minutes.  The sunrise in the morning also makes the location so worth it.  This is in our Top 10 Hotels Pigeon Forge for sure!
