When we made our reservation we knew what we were signing up for – a small, older, family run roadside motel. We have no problems staying in these, particularly when we stay in small towns. Reservation via phone and check in went smoothly. As expected, the room was dated, and with the exception of the dusty ceiling fan, it was... More

This was the only hotel in chimney rock that would let us book a room for one night over the weekend of the 4th. My husband and I checked in around 3 and the lady behind the counter was very sweet and let us pay cash. We were planning on meeting some friends at lake lure but saw the beach... More

This motel is in a great location and very close to the river running behind it. The room we stayed in had a king bed with a private balcony. The room had wood paneling on the walls and ceiling, a ceiling fan above the bed and the room was clean. The lady at the office was very friendly and quick... More

If you have read any of the other reviews of this property, you have already learned it is an older motel in need of TLC. If you are expecting a 5 star resort with amenities this is not the place for you. If however, you are looking for a clean (met my wife's picky standards), inexpensive room with a balcony... More

While the location is excellent the whole property is in need if repair and updating! Our room had a lovely balcony over the river but kits of ants. The air conditioner had cardboard pieces between it and the windows. Staff was friendly at checkin but then basically absent for our two night stay. Cannot recommend for others!

Valley Court Riverside Motel, 289 Main St, Chimney Rock, NC 28720, is a small, old family run motel with clean rooms. The front door is 25 feet from the highway and the balcony is almost over the river. If you like the sound of rushing water this is the place for you. The rooms have some updates including a newer...

We brought our family here for vacation. We had great room facing the river. The kids enjoyed the river. The service was excellent. Thanks for letting us use the grill. We grilled out and a great family dinner by the river. We will definitely be back.
