We only stayed one night but went to on site balsam spa two days! The hotel gave us free breakfast buffet -booked thru trip advisor and even upgraded our room. Rooms Very clean but needs updating. The breakfast was amazing made to order omelets, homemade waffles, fruit, etc. Very beautiful grounds and quiet room !

This was a last minute family trip we planned. It was my wife and our 3 kids. We had a great time and our room was spacious. The view we had was breathtaking. We visited the pool twice and the Breakfast was wonderful both days. It's really a laid back location and that is perfect for our family. It's not... More

There aren't a lot of options in the Waynesville area for a weekend visit near town. Waynesville is a great weekend trip from Atlanta. The staff was great, the golf course better than average and food acceptable. Near great shopping, mountain experiences and fine dining. Large rooms and large patio but very dated, ask for a 2nd floor golf and... More

Spouse and I stayed at this hotel for five nights while we looked at real estate in the area. On the plus side, the staff was friendly and the pool, although small, was clean. And our room was quiet, and clean. But that's it for positives. The room smelled like mold, especially when coming in after having been out all... More

I'm sorry you did not enjoy your time here. Although we always try to upgrade our guests to accommodations that work best for them, existing reservations over the holiday weekend prevented us from doing so in your case. As for our breakfast, it has always been a staple of our property, since it is not a typical, paltry continental breakfast.... More

We booked two nights to meet up with friends who had children in a nearby camp. I thought the men might sit by the pool while the wives enjoyed the on-premises spa, but the pool was much smaller than the inn's web-site picture would lead you to believe, and the six or so lounge chairs were all taken. I had... More

We were very disappointed to read your review regarding the hospitality you received during your recent visit. In courtesy to our other guests, we did have to take action after excessive noise from the area you were occupying was reported around midnight. Perhaps the request to vacate the area could have been delivered more politely. As for your restaurant experience,... More

Recently we were unable to find a good place to stay in Asheville, NC (apparently in the summer most properties are sold out) so we decided to make the short drive to nearby Waynesville to stay. Hotel Tonight directed us to The Waynesville Inn, Golf Resort & Spa and we couldn't have been happier. For only a few dollars more... More

The area in the mountains is lovely and the local shops are quaint. The room needed updating so badly. I could not believe any hotel would use torn washcloths and towels! We did not have a desk or table to use. When we requested one (twice), they finally sent up an end table for us to use for laptop and... More

This was our second stay at the Waynesville Inn and we enjoyed it even more than our first. Our room in the Inn was bright and cheerful and overlooked the lovely golf courses.

To start, this was a groupon deal so perhaps we had the worst room in the place but I was not happy. The room was fine enough and, as a whole, the inn is lovely but I had the worst shower experience ever (and I was an itinerant traveler through rural Alaska). The water was either ice cold or scalding... More
