We arrived at the cardinal inn on tues aug 25, 2015. We met two off the sweetest ladies ever. They walked us to our room and explained how things worked inside the room. Whatever questions we had about what fun things to do and where to eat and stuff they were so helpful, did I mention sweet and friendly? The... More

The rooms are nice and spacious with all the goodies that you need. The view from front of the motel is beautiful you... More

First of all let me explain, all the motels and hotels in Maggie Valley are very expensive so they are all overpriced. Having said that, I will say The Cardinal Inn was fairly priced for the area. It is an older place but it is very obvious the owners Paula and Charlotte work very hard to keep it clean, comfortable... More

I've written review previously on Cardinal Inn. Now there has been a change in ownership since my last review. It is now even better, Charlotte & Paula have made many changes for the better. Pillow top mattresses, Direct tv, new blinds & curtains to name a few. But the outstanding service is what over whelmed me, came in from a... More

The Cardinal Inn is now my favorite place to stay. My family and I recently stayed Thursday - Sunday and this place completely made our vacation. The beds were pillow top and VERY comfy, and there were pillows galore. The towels were heavenly. What really stood out to me was the hospitality of Paula and Charlie. Every night we made... More

Paula and Charlotte have done a great job with the inn and we're sure it will only get better in the future. Our king room was very clean and quiet and everything in the room worked well. We look forward to visiting again in 2016!

My wife and I decided to enjoy an extended weekend in Maggie Valley. We usually visit several times a year motorcycling or fly fishing, this time we wanted to enjoy the cooler Temps and the Hillbilly Woodstock. Given being familiar with town we usually stay up the street, this trip we decided to try something different. Through positive reviews and... More

The rooms are nice, clean, and comfortable. The bed and pillows were very comfortable. Also the linen and towels. This is a small inn with a quiet and relaxing atmosphere. The owners (Charlotte & Paula) are very nice and friendly. We stayed over the 4th of July weekend and did not need to leave the inn to watch the fireworks... More
