They need to do a lot of TLC Rooms need major work done. Bathroom and toilet. Toilet had to work, need updated one. Cars have bent the posts outside. Good location is all that was good. Desk staff was nice. Bed squeaky, a/c barely worked. Windows only one would open. Bathroom window boarded up. No vent in bathroom, and just... More

Checking online for a hotel, came across the RELAX INN. Appeared to be moderate, not fancy and not a dive. But, I was completely taken back. My daughter cried and didnt even want to stay there once we opened the room doors!!! We booked the Family Suite, and it was just HORRIBLE!!! The smell was so overwhelming of mildew and... More

Thank you for taking care of us this last weekend! Everyone was wonderful to our guests. This motel is much older but they were clean, AC and a Pool. The motel rooms had microwaves & refrigerator. It was within walking distance to the "Great Smokey Mountain Train", places to eat and shop. Additionally, I was very pleased to notice the... More

Came here with my 2 little kids for a layover before the train. Very kind staff. Clean, but in strong need of some repairs and updates. The caulking in the shower was crumbly and black with mildew. Recently painted, but very sloppy with drips everywhere and lots of stray brush marks. No deadbolt or security chain on the door. Comfy... More

This motel is older, but very clean and has A/C and a pool. The price is so reasonable for a tourist town. The owners are very biker friendly, use of hose and towels to clean our bikes. The pool was clean and very welcome after a day of riding. It is within walking distance to all the resturants and stores.... More

Old motel. Reminds me of Route 66. Wi-fi works excellent and there is a pool and AC works well. What else do you need. Clean. Excellent food a short walk away. Park those bikes and walk. Free bike wash.

I have stayed in a lot of hotel/motels through my years and quite a few with our family and our Harleys. This is first hotel that we have woke up every morning and the owner has covered every motorcycle seat with a towel. They are a family owned, courteous, nice little motel that is truly BIKER FRIENDLY!!!
