Super 8 Pigeon Forge

We recently spent a week in Tennessee this June.  To try to keep our trip lower cost I used hotel points for many of the nights we were on the road.  The Super 8 Pigeon Forge on Emert had good reviews and is in a good location.

If you have never been to Pigeon Forge I would describe to people as the Wisconsin Dells on steroids.  OMG!  Miles of mini golf, go carts, dinner shows and entertainment.  While there is a cheap/free (depending) trolley system this area is really not that walk able as things are spread out vs Gatlinburg.  I do not like to drive all over, I would rather walk to dinner so I was pleased to see our hotel was within two blocks of the Old Mill Restaurant.

If you do not walk to drive anywhere or really walk the hotel is behind Wendy’s, Arby’s, Ihop, Pizza Hut, Baskin Robbins, etc.  I would recommend you make the short walk to  The Mill and so did the sweet lady who checked us in.

The Super 8 has exterior hall ways and four floors with an elevator.  I had the option of booking a standard king room or a king room with a jacuzzi tub and fireplace.  No thinking needed there, I want the tub!

Our fourth floor room was very spacious.  It offered a sofa pullout bed near the door.

We also had a small wet bar area with a microwave, sink and fridge.

The fridge and microwave are always a plus for our family.  If he is up late my husband will usually heat up my left over half of a burger for a snack.

Breakfast offered the usual make your own waffles,  bagels, cereal, toast, yogurt and biscuits and gravy.   The breakfast area is small so if it is busy there were trays to carry back to your room.  I will admit after a hot run I hit those biscuits and gravy hard, the gravy was good!

Saturday night we heard some noise from our balcony and were treated to fireworks on the hill across the way.  After looking at a map these might have been the Dollywood fireworks.

We would stay here again if we came to Pigeon Forge.  We walked around to a few shops after dinner and then relaxed.
