Our FIAT group of about 70 people with 50 cars driving The Dragon, Devil's Triangle, Moonshiner 28, etc stayed here and were very pleased. The accommodations were simple, but the service, staff and environment were top notch! The hotel is close to the TN 73 entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park, there are gas stations an restaurants nearby and one... More

The room itself was average. Had updated/modern furnishings and amenities. Beds are firm. The room was comfortable, and was very clean. However, had a strong musty odor. Our room was a double, we had a patio, and it is relaxing/peaceful outdoors. The internet was slow. All that being said, we would stay again.

We stayed at Tally Ho over the weekend. Sat we went out and came back to find termites all in the kitchen. We reported the problem to the front desk and left again. When we returned they were even worse. Sunday morning none of us could believe how many there were. We reported the problem again and did not even... More

We picked this hotel after driving by 3 others with higher Trip Advisor ratings. The others had similar advertised prices but looked much less appealing. The staff here were all very friendly and helpful. The upper floor King bed room was VERY spacious and had a private balcony. The restaurant next door gives a 10% discount to Tally Ho key... More

The decor at Talley Ho Inn was plain and neutral but adequate and it was very clean. Microwave, coffeemaker and mini fridge in the room. Free wi-fi. Mattress was very firm. It was very quiet but not many people were there. We could hear the water being used in another room in the morning and I ran out of hot... More

The rooms are good size clean and our beds slept comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful. It was nice to be in peaceful place not crowded by noisy traffic. I was satisfied by the cost and like supporting independent business ,plan on staying there again.

Talley Ho has a couple of houses and we have used Cottage 2 three times now with our friends, most recently last weekend. It's 3 bdr, 3 bath with kitchen, patio, deck, washer/dryer, and everything. There aren't a lot of food choices late in the season in Townsend so we bring food and cook in after being out in the... More

We are two female photographers needing a place to stay 'fairly close' to Cades Cove for a few days of shooting. I just came back from my third stay at this great place and wanted to share the experience with others. For two women traveling together the room set up is perfect...two queen beds, in addition to the sink/mirror shower,... More

The Talley Ho Inn is a pleasant and relaxing place to stay. Our family has been staying here several times per year during the last 20 years. The units are clean, beds are comfortable, and the staff is very pleasant to deal with. There are two small houses that accommodate small groups. Our family has utilized these houses for Christmas...

My husband and I have stayed at Talley Ho on several occasions and with family too! Of all my vacations this has to be the most relaxing place to visit of them all. The rooms are always so very clean and they have the most "at home" atmosphere. The owners see to it that visitors are happy and they make... More
