4 Reasons Our Hotel in Pigeon Forge TN is Great for Football Game Weekend Trips

Football season is just around the corner and before you know it you’ll be hearing “Rocky Top” everywhere you go as Big Orange fans prepare to cheer the University of Tennessee Volunteers to victory. But those aren’t the only games you’ll catch on the TV screens around Pigeon Forge! For many fans who travel into town from other cities for games, we want to make it easy for you to find practical and affordable lodging. 

Here are 4 reasons you should choose our hotel in Pigeon Forge TN for your lodging needs:

1. Great ValueA beautiful hotel room at The Inn on the River in Pigeon Forge.

Located just 26 miles from the gates of Neyland Stadium, our hotel in Pigeon Forge TN is an excellent choice for patrons looking for a practical lodging option at a great price point. Rooms in downtown hotels sell out quickly for home game weekends when 107,000+ fans come to town (there are likely few left even now), and those that are still available typically come with a hefty price tag. If you love the Vols but can’t spend your life’s savings on hotel rooms for game weekends, consider staying with us!  

2. Top of the Line Amenities

Our hotel in Pigeon Forge TN is loaded with great amenities, making it even more valuable for guests! We have rooms available with private balconies that overlook the river, in-room fireplaces and Jacuzzis, free WiFi, an in-room Keurig and more. We also have an outdoor pool on the river, a heated indoor pool with a large hot tub, patios, picnic tables on the river, and even grills. Our complimentary hot breakfast is one-of-a-kind, offering everything from biscuits and gravy to fruit and yogurt, and will also help to save you some cash for those game day souvenirs!

3. Group Packages

What could be more fun than coming to a game with a group of friends? If you’re planning to get together for a game this fall, be sure to check out the group lodging packages (8 room minimum) at our Hotel in Pigeon Forge TN. If you’re in charge of an alumni group and you’re looking for somewhere to stay that couples affordability with luxury and accessibility, you’ve met your match! We offer discounted room rates, free parking for all of your guests, baggage assistance and more to ensure that your group feels at home during their stay.

4. Make it a VacationWatching football at Smoky Mountain Brewery
