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

What another great stay at Jim Oliver's Lodge! We stayed in a cabin close to the tennis courts. The cabin was very cute and decorated appropriately. Every time I've stayed at the lodge, I've been pleasantly surprised by the cleanliness of the rooms. I can't wait to come stay again. Clean and a good value!

This hotel is more like a motel layout with the room doors on the outside, not exactly providing a great sense of security. The room smelled of mildew, and one of the bath towels was disgusting dirty. The bed was adequately comfortable, the shower was pretty good, and the price was comparable to a Hampton Inn- where I would have... More

We just had out 25th 4th of July Monteagle gathering for friends and family. Several from other states stay at the Smokehouse because we don't have enough sleeping room for all. These are not people who travel occasionally so they do have enough hotel experience to recognize good hospitality, or when it missed the mark. One of the best kept... More

Staff was friendly, room was very nice and reasonably priced. I love the Pantene shampoo and the nice face soap- I slept like a baby. The food at Jim Olivers Smokehouse was off the chain good!!! And the wait staff was wonderful. I love this place

As I entered the room, I noticed the typical musty smell of a Best Western property. The water pressure is low and my daughter's room lacked a shower curtain. There was a seating area outside my room where people smoked and talked to all hours of the night. The window unit air conditioner sucked up the smoke and blew it... More

We had an enjoyable stay in a cozy cabin at the Smokehouse Lodge in Monteagle, TN. Very nice & clean, Jacuzzi tub, comfortable bed, fireplace, kitchenette, screened porch, very private. Tennis court, pool and small lake on the grounds, plus restaurant with great food, & gift shop. Family owned & operated since 1960. We would stay there again.
