I just needed a clean, comfortable room for the night, but appreciated the upgrade with my ING rewards. Friendly staff, good breakfast, clean, very comfortable bed! The ING rewards line was quick... was already at hotel when I called, and my reservation was faxed before even hanging up.

I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff and level of service at this motel. Clean, comfortable room with full breakfast. Very quiet with little or no road noise. Get out of the rat race that is Pigeon Forge and relax as this motel that is convenient to I-40 and restaurants in the area.

Was on our way to Gatlinburg and needed a place to stay. Very nice place! Rooms and beds very cozy. Staff was very friendly, and helpful. Had a full breakfast the next morning. We will stay here again if ever in the area again. It is so worth every penny :)

This is the best and newest place to stay in Newport. I have stayed in some others over the years and some are really gruesome so if you want to take no chances then stay here. For Newport this is five star but I give it four because they annoy me. How do they do it? Well, they get greedy... More
