Photos: Howard Johnson by Wyndham Hotel (Pigeon Forge)

 I thought I'd never stay in another hotel again after our first AirBnB in DC, but Tennessee's unique area is kind of a flip-flop on that one. Most AirBnBs in Pigeon Forge were a little expensive, but the hotels were surprisingly cheap compared to other cities, even my own city which doesn't really see tourists. This Howard Johnson is nothing fancy, but it's a good hotel. We had no problems with our room or the bathroom. The only thing that didn't work was a hair-dryer, but that was a minor issue that didn't plague us. 
 And you have the basic TV, basic cable and HBO, microwave, and mini-fridge. All of them worked fine. 
 On the second floor (if I remember right) there's a little arcade. I thought that was a little neat for a hotel to have if you have kiddos. But since Pigeon Forge has so many things to do, I have to wonder how much traffic this mini arcade sees. I sure didn't play anything. 
 The hotel has two pools. I really wanted to do the big pool and slide. Not even the big pool has a true deep end. I think the big one reaches its deepest end at 5 feet. But the water was too cold when we tried swimming in it at night. A bit of a shame really. 
 But they do have an indoor pool that is heated. So we spent about an hour swimming in it. It's a little tiny, but we chose a time where nobody else was there. 
 I also chose the place for its complimentary breakfast. I try to make our vacations as frugal as I can, and not having to shell out for breakfast was a win for me. They had sausage and eggs, which is what my wife Daisy and my mother ate for the most part. 
 They also had biscuits, which I probably had one too many of. They were okay, but not the best. 
 They also had cereal, but they don't have whole milk. I might as well pour water in the dang bowl, so I skipped out on that. I was going to get a small batch of milk from the nearby Wal-Mart, but the timing didn't work out. 
They also had waffles, donuts, and fruit. Overall I was pleased with this place. It was nice, quiet, and very affordable.

  2. Looks like a nice place. We always try to choose something that is clean, functional and affordable. We don't spend much time in the hotel room, so as long as it meets our needs, it's fine.

  4. Sounds like a great place to stay. Glad you had good luck.
    My concern anymore, when I stay at a motel/hotel, I always wonder if they've changed the sheets. Sometimes, it's obvious they have. Other times, not so much.

  5. My friend convinced me and i had no choice than to follow my friend advice,because i never dreamed of loosing my lovely Husband. And i contacted_________Robinson.buckler@ { yahoo }. com, and i discussed with him all my problems and worries and so surprisingly,he told me that I’ll get my husband back a day after. I didn’t believed Him, until when i got home,the next day,my husband called me to inform me that he is coming back home…..So Amazing!! That’s how i got my back through spell casting and our relationship was stronger than ever. One of the price i was asked to pay was to tell it to the people around me that problems like this,can always be solved by Robinson Buckler So! my advice to you out there is to visit this same E-mail address,and tell him your problems too,if you are in any condition related to love issue or getting your ex back or and problem at all, pls Contact him and have a happy life.��������������������

  6. We also try to choose a hotel based on if it has complimentary breakfast or not. That's the best way to save money, especially when you have a whole family to feed all day long!
