I only stayed one night but it was all around a good experience. The check in staff was young but very professional and personable. The room was very clean and had all the amenities stated. The attached restaurant had a very good menu and a wonderful breakfast.

This is a lodge situated high atop Monteagle Mountain. It is relaxing and quiet, and attached to an excellent place to eat. We also enjoyed free entertainment on Saturday night. I think "newbies" and song writers from Nashville come here to get experience. We will definitely come back.

I have stayed at the Best Western Smokehouse Lodge on Monteagle, TN several times and have never been disappointed. The rooms are large and spacious and the beds are quite comfortable. The centrally located lobby has a fireplace that makes it feel as though you are walking into someone's home. The front desk staff is friendly, courteous, and efficient. The... More

Nice decor - mountain lodge theme with a huge woodburning fireplace in the lobby. Clean rooms, friendly and competent staff. Rooms open directly onto the outdoors (no interior hallway.) Vinyl flooring rather than carpet.

It was a decent room for the price paid, quiet and big. With a big and confortable bed. They have a good internet conection. But since we only stayed for the night period since we had to travel somewhere else, I can't tell much more about the hotel service.

We entertain a lot for holidays, summer visitors, etc, and we always send our people to the Smoke House. We recently had our home remodeled, and it was our pleasure to stay for an extended (2 WEEKS) period in several of the cabins. We bounced around due to other, prior bookings for Thanksgiving, etc. Had a nice time, used the... More

I would stay here again. The rooms were clean and the people at both the hotel and restaurant were super friendly. The cable tv did go out, tho, which kind of stunk because there isn't much in town to do.

Great hotel for the price, it was very clean and nothing was old or broken. Actually after I saw the room I was surprised it wasn't more expensive, very nice rooms. The staff was very nice and helpful, if in need of a hotel STAY HERE! It was a great stay!

Thank you so much, we appreciate your comments. All the money we've spent in the last couple of years is paying off now and customers are seeing the upgrades and improvements. We've still got to finish the lobby, some landscaping, and the fitness room to be complete. Hope to have these done over the winter. More

The hotel is in serious need of upgrading (or demolition), with many items in need of repair. Room was cold, drafty, and linens ready to be used as rags. The staff was barely concerned with anything. You are much better off continuing down the road to another hotel.

We stay at this property everytime we come through Monteagle Tenn. We have an excellent dinner at the Smokehouse Restaurant and a peaceful nights sleep in their wonderfully comfortable beds.
