We love staying here the rooms are clean the staff is wonderful very pleasant. We will not stay anywhere else Ridgetop will always have our business. You can't beat the stay for the rates and this is what will keep us coming back.

The service at the front desk was great and the view outside was very pretty, but the room itself needed a remodel. We stayed in a pet room so that might have had something to do with it. The room was clean, but the linens were very old kind of ripped. Instead of a bedspread on the bed there was... More

So this backs up to a trailer park and the walls are so thin you can hear everything your neighbors do. Minus the black mold in the bathroom, the place was clean. The flooding is cheap without padding, so the floor creaks with every step. You can even feel very nail in the flooding. Also, rooms aren't insulated, so they... More

We stayed here after a train ride. The hotel is old, but clean. The decor is dated and a bit dingy, but clean. The shower was more of a twinkle and a luke warm twinkle at that. It made me nervous that the exterior door was hollow core. Could be super great with a little updating. Loved the low price!

Been on the road for three months we are price conscious and always looking for clean comfortable accommodation so when we hit Bryson we checked out the Ridge Top Motel. The manager was very friendly and showed us two rooms, one on the ground floor and one on the 1st floor. As the 1st floor room was more spacious we... More

Travelling with a small dog. Stayed 2 nights. The owner was very friendly and helpful. There are only a few pet rooms, so we got one of those. It was ok, but kind of smelled from previous pets. Our dog is well behaved, house broken, and doesn't shed, so, even though we have a dig, we are kind of sensitive... More

Made it to Bryson City, late evening. Checked with a couple other motels, but they were booked up. Friendly front desk staff. Clean, but dated room. Looks like they recently put in quality Windows. No noise, from outside. Not much hot water, but good water pressure.

Holes in the wall around the a/c. Toilet flushed after 3 tries. Internet would not work Very noisy. We went back to the office and told the manager... More

This is not a 4 star Hotel but the owners make up the difference. The view is beautiful. If you are a rider then you will love the fact that every morning you will find a clean towel draped over your seat to wipe off the dew so that you have a dry butt for your ride. My bike was... More

If you expect the TAJ MAHAL then keep looking. If you want to be around friendly, caring people, clean facilities, great location, and at a great price--then this is place for you. The only negative is the rooms are small--however I do not go to a tourist town to stay in my room. When I go back to Bryson you... More
