Fantastic place to get away with family and friends. The atmosphere is perfect for the hotels location in the mountains. Rooms were updated nicely and very clean. Would be nice to have a mini refrige. in the room. The Smokehouse restaurant was a fun place to eat with music entertainment and a old general store with lots of local made... More

My husband and I got away for the night and stayed at the best western and ate at Jim Oliver's Smokehoise. We had a great time and our room was simple and quaint and clean. Comfortable bed and pillows. It's was $103 tax and all, not bad for a Friday night. We will return.

Glad you found your getaway to Monteagle satisfactory!

Savage Gulf, Fiery Gizzard, Stone Door are all just 30 minutes from us. Links to these attractions and... More

The time we spent looking thru the wares they had for sale and alos the wide variety of display items. The fudges and candy in the candy shop looked so inviting and it very difficult for this diabetic to not buy and consume some . The restaurant was good home cooking southern style.

On the trip to Florida we were trying to go as far as possible when a fog started to set in, was late in the afternoon already. We kept seeing billboards for the Best Western in Monteagle and knew we would pull off there. By the time we got to the exit, the fog was so bad that we could... More

Excellent service, friendly, helpful and professional staff. Excellent food. I have a very bad back and I can honestly say that I got up without pain or struggle. Overall value for price paid was excellent.

This hotel has been recently renovated, in fact they are still working on some areas. The reception area was a small room with a desk, nothing else. My first thought was, we need to leave but I'm glad we didn't. The rooms all had entrance doors to the outside. No interior rooms. The room was clean. The floors were ceramic... More

I've stayed in Best Westerns in the past and probably will again at some point. I just think this lodge is poorly equiped for the cold temperatures and for the price, it should have had better heating. At least, it should have had extra blankets in the room available.

So sorry about the cold, but the temperatures were down to zero, and basic motel rooms with outside entrances are just not equipped with anything to hold the heat at that point. Thanks for your comments and hope you can come see us when the weather and temperatures are more enjoyable. More

Two different rooms, two different nights. Somebody send a wrench and screwdriver so they can fix the loose toilet seats The bathtub water spout stuck out 4 inches from the tub and light shone in from behind the hole. What the heck

Love this resort! Looking forward to visiting again....Friendly, professional service at the desk. Comfortable and clean room! The bed was VERY comfortable. Tall shower, hot water. Lots of room. Fast Wi-Fi. And the restaurant is a 5 star well worth the return food and service. Thank-you for a memorable stay!

Been here many times while on cross country trips. Great food love the smell of firewood crackling when I check in and super friendly mountain hospitality makes this a favorite place to recharge the batteries. Walls can be thin with some rooms so if you are looking for a wild night rent one of the cabins out back and go... More
