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

I was a little hesitant staying at an Inn but was pleasantly surprised by how nice it was! Friendly service. Clean and comfortable. The beds were some of the most comfortable I've ever slept in at a hotel. Plenty of fluffy pillows and the towels were amazing! Fluffy and soft! Only complaint was our little air conditioner had a hard... More

The rooms are very nice with very comfortable beds. The linens were wonderful. The towels were pure luxury! Breakfast was not provided, but we were directed to Joey's Pancake House. And those pancakes were out of this world . Our host was very welcoming and only had our comfort as her primary concern. I would definitely stay again!

One of the cleanest and friendliest motels in Maggie Valley, and at an affordable price. We enjoyed our stay and appreciated the attentiveness of the staff to all our needs. We would not hesitate to stay here again, and look forward to future visits.

We have stayed only 1 night in Cardinall Inn but we enjoyed every minute of it. Host ladies were so polite and helpful. They do not provide breakfast but they recommended where to have the best breakfast in Maggie Valley. If you are heading from to NC to Great Smokies, this is the place to stay to worth every penny...

We stayed 2 nights. The staff is friendly and helpful. The room was comfy and very clean (that means a lot to us). The bed was just right, the linens clean and soft. We loved their soft towels too! I love that they provided a small microwave popcorn bag at no charge along with coffee and little creamers! Keep up... More

We stayed for three nights, and every time we saw any of the staff they would smile say Hi and ask if we needed anything. I have never stayed in a place where they were so willing to make your stay as comfortable as home. The beds are just right for a good night sleep, not to hard, not to... More

My husband's class reunion was held at The Cardinal Inn. We had a great time. The room was clean and spacious. The bed was comfortable with plenty of pillows and blankets. Nice to have chairs outside our door to wake up in the morning with our coffee. I will definitely return for another stay!
