Expedia cheated me, I booked my room and when I arrived they said there is no booking. I was there with my kids for more than 2 hours waiting and talking to expedia customer care and hotel manager.

Disliked: Cleanliness, staff & service, amenities, property conditions & facilities
Our room smelled stale and musty. There were dead flies/gnats in the sink. I also found several medium length black hairs along the bathtub, and there were stains on the door as walls. There were cigarette burns on the edge of the tub as well. The shower head was barely above my head and I’m only 5’ tall. The water shot directly at my chest and I had to bend over backwards to wash my hair. The water pressure was very good-this was the best part about the room! The beds were full, not queen. One bed had a sheet and blanket, and the other bed didn’t have a blanket at all. The room had weird spots on the wall, chipped paint, dried nail polish on the nightstand. All in all, the experience was terrible and this was the worst hotel I have ever stayed in Pigeon Forge. Do not recommend!
