The noise coming from the village (music, people talking, kids screaming) made for a very unpleasant experience. Also, adding to this is the zero soundproofing of doors (entry and balcony). Laying in bed up until after 11pm, kids and people were also talking loudly in the hall, running up and down the hall and basically making it such between the noise coming from the outside “village corridor” and the hallway it was impossible to rest until well after 11pm. Then again in the morning the piped in “village” music starts again and the whole routine repeats itself. The party I was traveling with in the second room said it is quieter staying in NYC! Shower water pressure is poor - a shame because the bathroom is nice. Don’t bother trying to use the gimmick of the margarita machine. It’s a chore to use and for the $65 the hotel charges for ingredients and hit/miss quality of the actual drink go have yourself a margarita in a restaurant. The machine margarita was foamy and a waste of money. If I went back, the only room I would consider here would be the back side stream facing rooms, but that would not eliminate the possibility of kids and uncouth parents yelling and screaming in the hallways incessantly. The room prices are top of the chart for this area so one would expect a different caliber of guest and hotel in general, but it is what it is. Lipstick on a pig comes to mind.
close to everything
Nice room but no sleep!
The room has a nice fireplace which was very nice after coming in out of the cold.
The overhead heating and air unit made loud noises all night resulting in loss of sleep. The facility was nice in appearance and clean. We would say again but would request a different area. Management felt that the unit was getting ready to go out. They was going to adjust our rate but couldn’t due to booking from a second party. They did give us a voucher for the coffee shop.
Bathroom was awesome
Location is perfect for strolling the parkway, dining, shopping, relaxing, and having an awesome time with your friends. The rooms are very comfortable and excellent house keeping.
The hotel needs more room for checking in or needs to stagger check in times. We had to wait in our car in line for about 30 minutes to unpack, get valet service and check in. Also, disappointed that the gas to the fireplace was cut off on 4/1. The weather was unusually cold and it would have been very nice to be able to use the fireplace. We normally come in September when its 90 degrees and the fireplace is on but we have never been able to use it. Need to gauge it by the weather and not by a date on the calendar.
Everyone was extremely friendly. Good southern hospitality.
Queen bed was a little small for two adults.
All rooms are on second floor. Our room/balcony overlooked village below. Rooms were spacious and beds are very comfortable. Nicely decorated. Nice private pool/bar area for guests on second floor. Great views. So many things to do/places to eat within short walking distance.
Pool is on the 2nd floor roof top. It overlooks the light show in the pond at The Island.
Bed was not comfortable and it's very pricey to be a hotel.
Fun for everyone!
We loved being able to walk out the hotel door and have live entertainment and fun things for kids. Being able to shop onsite and have great food without driving anywhere is amazing. We could enjoy a drink at hotel bar and then go to watch the dancing water show in rocking chairs provided. We also went to Dollywood and it was great too. Also the staff was very helpful and rooms are amazing. Will definitely come back again. Fun place for all ages!!
The only negative thing would be parking away from hotel. We didn't mind the walk and they have valet parking if needed.
Beautiful rooms. Great pool and atmosphere. Tons to do and see within a short drive.
Could offer breakfast for the price. I would love to see the pool balcony open to adults only after the pool closes. Entire island shuts down at 11.
Loved our stay
I enjoyed the fact that the rooms have a very modern feel. The shower in itself was wonderful! The added bonuses of the fireplace and balcony was great. Would love to spend a romantic weekend getaway here in the near future.
With all the nights we spent eating out, a free breakfast buffet would've made a big difference. We had to travel a ways off the property to eat breakfast.
Margaritaville Island Hotel in Pigeon Forge blends the island life with mountain living. A rooftop pool, an on-site mixed-use entertainment center, and more bring couples, singles, and families to the area.
Just outside Margaritaville's doors lies The Island, a retail and entertainment center that both blends in with its surroundings and stands out as a destination in itself. Anchored by the Smoky Mountain Wheel, which is a 200-foot-high observation wheel, The Island features games, rides, shops, and restaurants.
After a day spent exploring the local mountains, guests can recharge at the full-service spa, or skip the mountains altogether and instead relax in a private cabana by the rooftop pool. When hunger strikes, there are plenty of options available at The Island, such as Paula Deen’s Family Kitchen, or at the hotel.
The Margaritaville Restaurant, the main dining option at the hotel, features “coastal-inspired comfort food” among its two-story eatery overlooking the Pigeon River. Other dining outlets include a coffee shop, a rooftop bar and pool, and the Changes in Latitude Lobby Bar. Guests can catch live music at Margaritaville Restaurant or a nightly fountain light show from the rooftop bar.
Guests feel like they’re in the middle of an island resort, not nestled in the mountains, in rooms and suites that have a distinct island flair. From the colorful walls and bleached wood floors to the balcony overlooking shops, the rooms are decorated with a coastal flair.
Close to most area attractions, Margaritaville Island Hotel is just 30 miles from McGhee Tyson Airport. Guests are within minutes of the Titanic Museum, The Comedy Barn, Dollywood, Tanger Outlets, and Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies. The Gatlinburg Sky Lift and the Space Needle are about seven miles away and both are a great way to take in the views of the surrounding mountains.
