We stayed at TalleyHo again. May be our third stay over the past couple of years. Clean. Nice folks. Their WiFi was down. Meant we couldn't connect with 'work' providing us with an excuse not to sign in. That is both "good news / bad news". We enjoyed sitting out on the balcony enjoying early morning birds chirping rather loudly!... More

I have never posted a review, but felt that Tally Ho was outstanding. We usually stay in the old part of the hotel. Those rooms are very clean and quaint. This year there were seven in our group and we stayed in the main house on the property. It had been remodeled and it was beautiful and very clean. Can't... More

Great option if the tackiness of Pigeon Forge and Gaitlinburg are not your thing. (Only one traffic light in Townsend says it all.) The drive to the Park everyday is beautiful along Little River Rd. Talley Ho is nicely located enabling you to walk to a few restaurants and an ice cream shop as well. In the front there is... More

Our family of four stayed 7 nights at the Talley Ho Inn. Two nights were spent in hotel rooms and five nights in Cottage 2. The rooms were nice and quiet but Cottage 2 was not what we expected. The Cottage needed updated and cleaned. The carpet was shag and it needed replaced. The housekeeping staff never once visited the... More

We wanted to go to the Smoky Mountains and try to photograph black bears and Elk. We selected this hotel based on the location being close to Cades Cove and the price. We really loved our stay. The room was very nice, clean, and had great hot water. Would definitely stay there again when we go back. Yes, we also... More

This is a nice enough place. Friendly staff. Clean rooms. My only beef is that the phone in my room rang randomly on several occasions, and at 3 a.m. Didn't make for a great night's sleep. Other than that, I'd recommend it. Might want to ask for a room without that feature though.

We stayed in the deluxe room with the jacuzzi tub, fireplace and balcony with a mountain view. It is a nice large room, spic and span clean - including the balcony. Definitely not a luxury upscale place, but an excellent, quiet, cozy, and CLEAN place. Nice soft linens.

We come to Townsend at least once a year. However, this was our first time staying at the Talley Ho. It will be our go to hotel from now on. Quietest, cleanest hotel in Townsend. The hotel rooms have been updated. The hotel also has the hottest water I had in Townsend, including my family.

My wife, son, and I stayed here for a long weekend. We chose to stay in Townsend to be close to the local activities without the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge traffic and crowds. The front desk attendant was very helpful and friendly when we stopped by to inquire about a room. He gave us some history of the hotel and let us... More

We stayed here for a festival and it turned out to be a great stay! The room was larger than most and the bed was very comfortable, with a private balcony. The owners are third-generation owners, so they seem to take pride in your stay. The restaurant was closed for the winter, but everything else was very nice.
