Margaritaville Island Hotel in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee

Sharing is caring!

I was a guest of and stayed at the Margaritaville Island Hotel.  The pictures and opinions in this post are my own.  (The mistakes are mine, too!)

Margaritaville Island Hotel is one of the coolest places to stay in Pigeon Forge.  The hotel pays homage to Jimmy Buffett and is full of island charm and has a laid-back vibe.

Have you ever have the problem deciding on whether to go the mountains or to the beach?  Stay here and consider your problem solved.  You’re welcome.

As soon as you enter the lobby, you are greeted with island decor in a soft color palette and a beautiful fireplace that entices you to sit back and relax.

The rooms continue on with the beach/island theme with beautiful, simple decor.

Each room at the Margaritaville Island Hotel comes with a Keurig machine as well as a Concoction Maker, perfect for making margaritas.  It’s five o’clock somewhere, right?

You can bring your own supplies to make margaritas, or you can purchase a package from the hotel.  (Check with the hotel for current prices.)

Other in-room amenities include a hairdryer, mini-fridge, and a safe.

While the bathroom in my room did not have a bathtub, it had a roomy shower with a rainfall showerhead.

The rooms are designated as fountain, river, or village view and are located above the shops at The Island.  The fountain view rooms allow guests to get an incredible view of the fountain show.  Be aware that The Island Show Fountains run until 11:30 at night – so if you are a light sleeper you might want to opt for a river or village view.

The Margaritaville Island Hotel pool is located above The Island Creamery, Kapop! and Farmhouse Ninety One Ten.

From the pool, guests have a good view of The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel.

There are plenty of lounge chairs and a few cabanas are available.

While at the pool, keep in mind that guests of The Great Smoky Mountain Wheel will also have a good view of swimmers and sunbathers.

My family and I really enjoyed our stay.  It was so nice being able to walk to nearby attractions like Alcatraz East and Smoky Mountain Adventure, as well as being just steps away from The Island shops.  We would definitely stay there again.
