This hotel is undergoing quiet a bit of renovations. The rooms look great and the staff is extremely friendly. The music on Saturday night was a must see. If you are thinking about heading to Tennessee any time soon then you should really make this place one of your stops along the way.

I try to stay at Best Western when ever I can. Monteagle was the closest to my destination that I could find. When making reservations on-line, I was a bit hesitant about booking there because of the prices of the rooms. I have to tell you; I was very surprised that the rooms, exterior, and service were way beyond what... More

Not wanting to travel another hour to Nashville, we decided to stop in Monteage for the night. The Best Western was right off the interstate and had room. King bed at AAA rate was a good price. Room was large, quiet location on the back side of hotel. Nothing fancy, but comfortable. Front desk staff were very friendly. Free WIFI,... More

We stumbled across this gem! The cabin was discounted as it was a Sunday. 89.00 for a bit of paradise. The cabin is beautifully done on the inside with two person tub and a great fireplace. The best were the rocking chairs on the front porch. The smokehouse restaurant has a buffet to die for. Just excellent!

We recently stayed at this hotel because they accept pets. The first room wasn't even cleaned or the bed changed so they gave us a cabin. The cabin could have bee kind of nice but is was dusty and musty. The screen door was missing and the porch chairs were broken. Skip the hotel but go to the restaurant for... More

Room had gnats, bathroom had issues - plug didn't work in tub, hot is cold, cold is hot, remote for tv didn't work. WiFi wasn't working. Front desk staff said a storm had knocked out the routers some time last week and they might have someone fix them in the next week or so. The list of amenities listed on... More

I have been staying here for the last four years while my son attends The University of the South, Sewanee. I love the restaurant and gift shop. the brisket and barbeque are awesome. On my last visit however (8/14), the room could have used a dry mop, the floors were dirty. Parts of the room could have used a more... More

Thank You for your review. We appreciate your comments and will certainly pass this on to all the staff.

This place is a real dive. If you like bare bones motels that smell like pitt bbq you'll love this! Beds are aweful and for our first day there was no shower curtain. I paid at least twice what this dump was worth.

Been coming to the Mountain for 35 plus years. I've seen the various iterations of accommodations throughout the years, and am consistently disappointed with the Smokehouse. The rooms were in bad shape, paint was peeling from the outside walls, the beds were bad, the lock on our door broken. A new Sewanee Inn- a 4-5 star hotel- has just opened... More

I was fatigued from driving and decided to stay at The Best Western in Monteagle; I chose the BW over the Super 8 because I thought it would be better maintained due to the appearance of its exterior. The first room to which I was assigned had dead fruit flies and lint in the bathtub and the smelled very musty.... More

Thank you for your review, we appriciate your comments. Sorry we dropped the ball, the front desk staff should have moved you into another room without question. We have been in and out of the rooms with construction, painting, and remodeling and the doors have been open for insects to come in, and the construction/painter workers must have used the... More
