Margaritaville Island Hotel

Hotel in Pigeon Forge

Breezy pastels and beach-cottage decor evoke a hip vacation vibe that would make Jimmy Buffett proud. Guests should begin with a drink from the in-room 'Frozen Concoction Maker' then continue the party on the rooftop pool, which is in the sightline of the Great Smoky Mountain Wheel.

Service is a whiff less personable than at other local properties, but who cares after that second concoction?
