Monteagle, Tennessee, just a few miles from The University of the South, Sewanee, makes it the go to hotel when visiting the university. Rustic decor, a decent restaurant and bar (with a kitschy gift/food shoppe with one-of-a-kind items) and friendly staff make it a pleasant place to stay. Nothing fancy, but clean and well-maintained. We have stayed there at least... More

Seems like you are paying tourist prices for everything in the restaurant, but not sure why...is Monteagle really a tourist destination? For us it was just a convenient stop between Nashville and Chattanooga. Both of which offer better accommodations for the same price. Hotel rooms were fine, although our door lock didn't work correctly, and the shower head was fixed... More

Best total value we've encountered in years if you like upscale unexpected value combined with down home facilities, screened porches with rocking chairs, full kitchen and abundant wood for wood burning fireplaces. Go during winter months to enjoy extensive hiking and a European Cathedral at nearby Sewanee University. Overall a pleasant surrealistic anachronism.

This Smokehouse Lodge was the coolest "hotel" we have ever stayed at! It really gave us a genuine Tenn. experience and we will for sure stay here again. The cabins were amazing! Perfect for a romantic getaway weekend.

I really enjoyed my stay at the SmokeHouse. The staff was kind and very curteous. The only problem I had was that the reservation I made was put in for the wrong month. I did not have a copy of my reservation and quoted price but the staff worked with me. It wasn't the price on the reservation but it... More

I loved the Best Western and the Smokehouse Restaurant. The food was great and the hotel was even better. I make trips back and forth between Maryland and Tennessee and I always stop here for the great service. I am renting a cabin again, fantastic and helpful housekeeping staff.

Very, very dated. Bathroom door stuck so bad, hard to open and close. Bathroom floor tiles missing grout. Bathtub stained from haircolor. Poor vanity lighting. Worth about $59 a night, not $84. Upside, clean linens, updated tv, mattress not bad.

We are in the middle of remodeling all our rooms; replacing the carpet, beds, TV's, Vanities, all the way down to the paint. Some of our rooms are tired, but we are eliminating these rooms now. We appreciate your comments and hope you will come back to see us on your next trip over Monteagle. More

This is a nice place to stop if you are on the road traveling on interstate 24. It is on the top of Eagle Mountain. It has a great history with great family staff and all workers were very helpful. For the money you couldn't go wrong. This will be my 2nd stop on my 4 day trips between Florida... More
