My husband & I stayed 1 night. Room was clean and nicely decorated. Staff was very helpful and friendly. Highly recommend and a great value for the money. The casino is close but you still need to drive to get to it.

This hotel is centrally located at the intersaction of 2 main streets, on our way from Asheville to Atlanta. Very close to the visitor center, museums and the casino. Price is excellent, and the place is clean. It is not directly on the main road, so it is fairly quiet. The continental breakfast is not much to brag about, but... More

We stayed here for one night on a trip to Smoke Mount Stables for horseback riding. The hotel room was clean and comfortable. It wasn't the best hotel we ever stayed in, but it was very good for the price. The management/staff was friendly and accommodating, giving us a later check-out time so that we could come back from riding... More

We stayed there for three nights. The location was good for us as we went to Great Smoky Mountains Natl Park each day and it was exactly a five minute drive to the park from our room. It was on the edge of the commercial part of town. The room was clean. The bed was very comfortable and the sheets... More

I stayed here one night on Sunday 8/10/2014. Very nice, clean and safe hotel. Also very reasonable rates. My room was very clean and comfortable. Really comfortable bed. The bathroom was spotless. It also was quiet and had a nice little continental, free breakfast. I will definitely be back for another visit.

We stayed just one night, but the room was very clean and was close enough to what we wanted. The attendant gave us advice on places to eat, though they're not many choices there. The tv needed updating, but otherwise it was worth the money.

My husband and I stayed only one night but was very pleased. I knew this hotel was here years ago and it is so close to everything and within walking distance to town that we had to stay here. After checking out the reviews on TripAdvisor, I booked it. We were very happy with our room and service. The rooms... More

My family and I just needed an overnight stay somewhere close to hiking area. Trip Advisor gave this motel a "thumbs up" so we took a chance. The man behind the desk was so polite and helpful - treated you like an honored guest! Location was convenient walking distance to downtown shops and eateries. Motel is older but very well... More

I thoroughly enjoyed my stay at this hotel! The hotel manager Roger was very attentive to his guests making sure all needs we're met. The staff were readily available at any time for questions. I hope to go again and pray there is a room available for us!

The gentleman in the office at my check-in was most polite and helpful. I stayed one night in an upper floor end unit, it was very roomy and reasonably priced. The room was immaculate! Perfectly clean, including the bathroom. It was a non-smoking room, there was not even a hint of smoke odor in the room. The bed and pillows... More
