Welcome to the Black Bear Inn & Suites, formerly the Clarion Inn & Suites, one of the premier hotels in Gatlinburg, TN, where our rooms and suites offer stunning panoramic views of the Great Smoky Mountains from your private balcony. But the views are just the beginning. We're located in downtown Gatlinburg near the Strip and we're only 200 yards from the entrance to the country's most popular national park, Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Let the beauty of nature inspire and relax you. No other place clears the head and invigorates the spirit quite like the Great Smoky Mountains.
...This hotel has indoor corridor which makes a huge difference in noise, the rooms and suites are both clean and modern (some with jacuzzis and/or fireplace), and beds and pillows are comfy. Hot breakfast with made to order omelets, fresh fruit, biscuits, gravy, waffles, juice, etc. Early check in is granted with a smile if they have it available and the location is great. The staff were very friendly and accommodating. We asked for a room on a high floor and they put us on the top. The hallways smelled clean and we were able to get an incredible night of sleep. We will be back!
Probably the cleanest and most up to date hotel we have stayed at in the smokies and that is saying a lot because we stay here several times a year. Very convenient to eateries. We will definitely be back
My daughter-in-law and I went to Pigeon Forge for a little Christmas Shopping. We were there the first week in November. Our room was very spacious and clean. Staff was very nice and friendly. Beds were great, very comfortable. Breakfast bar had a big verity of foods and you could order a special omelet of your choice. We enjoyed our stay very much.
