I stayed with the Wight's for about 5 nights and have absolutely NO complaints whatsoever. Everyone was so friendly! I even got to go on a Bike ride with Phillip on Friday before I left the next morning. It was a great ride that I may not have taken all the roads he took me on if it was left... More

Staff were very friendly and helpful. Housekeeping was great and eager to please. Pool was kept Crystal clear, only draw back was it had no kiddie pool, the pool depth went from 4' to 7'. Fire ring was huge and tons of fun for roasting. Rocking chairs on each porch and a huge hammock at the picnic table. Most of... More

My husband and I stayed here last Fall and were treated like friends from the very beginning. Yes, this is an older Motel as are most of the ones in Maggie Valley but that just added to our trip. The room was exceptionally clean and there was coffee made in the office which is always a plus for me!! I... More

My wife and I had the Clarketon recommended to us by some friends when we told them we were going to the Smokey Mts on a motorcycle trip. All we wanted in a place to stay was that it be clean and air conditioned because we do not take a vacation to sit in the motel. When we arrived we... More

This is not the Hilton! But, let me assure you, you will never find nicer owners who will bend over backwards to make your stay as comfortable as possible. We've stayed twice on motorcycle trips and would rather stay here than a high end hotel, the owners care about their customers. We went on a ride with Phillip and hung... More

We stayed in August of last year and had several rooms and many family members with us and everyone had a very enjoyable stay. The kids enjoyed the pool and play ground and we enjoyed the fire pit. We just booked our rooms for July of this year and can't wait. We just love this motel and how personable the... More

Was at the Clarketon this weekend for a motorcycle club event that had gotten off to a rocky start but upon arriving at the motel we found a quaint little hotel that opened up it's arms for us. Owner Phillip and his family made us feel as if we were staying with friends rather than at a motel. The room... More

Clean rooms and great customer service. I don't want to pay for "extras" that I find useless on a motorcycle trip. My group stayed 3 nites and we all agreed that we will be going back! The owner rides too and took us on a tour of the local back roads and we had a blast! The Tail of the... More

Love this place! So enjoyed our stay at the Clarketon! Rooms were clean and comfortable. Management and staff are helpful and kind they really go out of their way to accommodate you. Clarketon is a small older facility with TLC. Made reservations to come back before we left. Looking forward to our next stay in May!

I am going to write my review for a second time because my original one has been removed. My husband and I were baffled that The Clarketon managed such a good rating on trip advisor but it seems they just have the poor ones deleted? There is absolutely nothing impressive about their rooms aside from the fact that they are... More

ClarketonMotel, Manager at The Clarketon Motel, responded to this review

We apologize to jennamarie51 for such an awful experience. We do not have the authority to remove a review on trip advisor. We do not provide the most modern conveniences and do not claim to do so. We are an older mom and pop facility and we do try to make every effort to accommodate our customers. Our reviews are... More
