Friendly staff, clean room and a comfortable bed. Good continental breakfast and coffee. They have a nice lil fenced in playground outside. Will be my main choice when visiting friends in the area :) Carpet was worn in a couple spots but was clean with no stains. Plenty of in room seating besides the bed. Very clean bathroom.

The day to day staff are friendly and try to make yor stay the best. However this motel closed down at the end of the leaf season, so if you pay by credit card watch for hidden charges, because the manager not the owener will add hidden charges after you have checked out. Plus for three weekends if you wanted... More

This was our second stay and we were a group of 4 guys on motorcycles for a week trip of different rides in the Smokies. This hotel is extremely clean and the staff was great. The carpet was a bit worn, but nothing that would keep me from staying again.

My husband, myself and our one year old stayed in the motel for one night while exploring the many waterfalls in the area. They have a nice playground and lots of fall decorations up around the hotel. We had a very nice stay and enjoyed our clean, no frills room.

This is a very basic roadside motel that has a lot going for it. The staff was very accommodating, friendly and helpful. The room was basic with a couple maintenance issues but nothing I couldn't overlook considering the reasonable price and nice location. Faint musty odor in room that I couldn't pinpoint a cause. Desk clerk thought it was from... More

We stayed at Carolina Motel for one night on our way home. It was a very quaint, clean motel and the staff were so friendly. We will definitely stay there again if in that area. The next time I will ask for a room that is not on the end by the road because of the heavy traffic. It wasn't... More

This hotel is still great. The staff is great and the rooms are still great. This is why we stayed a second time. We will probably stay here next year when we go gem hunting again. This was the first time staying here for my husband and he really liked the hotel. He took the grandkids to the playground and... More
