Accessible room with Hoyer lift in Pigeon Forge, TN?


From a member of our community:

I’m looking for a wheelchair accessible room with a Hoyer lift in Pigeon Forge, TN. Specifically, a hotel with open floor plans, no carpet, and a zero entry pool or handicap pool chair.


We stayed in Country Inn and Suites in Pigeon Forge for several days last week. Sadly, I don’t think you’ll find any hotel that does not have carpet (as tile floors are often slippery, thus preventing accidents). The hotel pool did have a lift chair to get access into the pool. The room we stayed in did have a higher commode with safety bar, a shower chair (400 pound weight limit), and a roll-in shower with several safety bars. There was one sink in the bathroom and another near the closet. We had two queen beds and a private balcony. Also if you are a member of this hotel, the discounted rate obtained from accessibleGO, can still be applied to your member rewards.

Also, while we were in Pigeon Forge (we are actually looking for a house near that area), we visited Alcatraz of the East Museum, it was accessible and had an elevator to go to the different floors. A restaurant, named Cheddars also has room for wheelchairs. Hope this information is helpful for you. Pigeon Forge is beautiful.
