I want to take the time to write an extremely positive review of Jim Oliver's place at Monteagle. I stayed there last month for a weekend. Not only were the rooms clean and comfortable, but the staff and management were probably the most friendly I have ever encountered. Positive, helpful, and outgoing, every single person I encountered there was just... More

Couldn't agree more with other reviews. Warm, welcoming staff. Reasonably priced rooms with wonderful beds covered with warm down comforters. TV. Free, fast internet. It's a "green" hotel. Front desk called couple hours after I checked in to make sure my room was all I hoped it would be and to hear if there was anything else I might need.... More

Loved my cozy but spacious cabin at the Smokehouse Lodge! The restaurant was great, too, with free live entertainment and hearty fare at every meal. The waitresses were some of the best I've ever encountered. Nearby University of the South in Sewanee, TN is less than five minutes away and is, in a word, enchanting! Overall, a fabulous experience for... More

I have been around the world more than once; I've performed in some of the finest hotels in Las Vegas, but my visit to The Best Western Smokehouse Lodge still has me reeling. Every aspect of this trip was mesmerizing. The overall atmosphere and ambiance of the facility, dating back over 50 years, was beyond description: scrumptious and delectable foods;... More

I have been going to The Smokehouse for almost two years 3 & 4 times a year! They treat everyone like family, and make it as hospitable as possible! The whole staff is dedicated to making your stay infectious and enjoyable! Make sure you eat the best food in the south! Ms.Betsy's cooking will make your tongue reach up and... More

We have attended two Smokin' Hit Songwriter's events in the last six months and have had a great time. Good food, great atmosphere and very friendly staff. J.D. and Betsy have rolled out the red carpet for all of us. And where else can you get free, live and top-notch music and entertainment on a Friday and Saturday night!

We had a room on the backside of the hotel. The room was clean but we could hear the man in the next room snoring, so the walls are very thin. The bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen, you could barely move around. Staff very nice and friendly. Would stay again if visiting the area, but it could... More

Excellent prices ... adorable, quaint cottages were so cozy that we did not want to leave. With the setting, restaurant, and cute country store, it made our stay an experience, not just a stay for the night!
