Not luxury, quite basic. The rooms were very spacious, the view was wonderful, and the front desk staff was very helpful. For the price, this is a solid value.

This is a great place to stay if you want to be close to the National Park (Cades Cove) and stay away from the craziness of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. The hotel is clean and definitely a great value for the price. The front desk staff was also very nice and helpful with tips on places to see.

Repeat customers get a 15% discount, and the next door Carriage House Restaurant offers a 10% discount for those staying at Talley Ho Inn. The food at the restaurant is excellent, but the Talley Ho Inn is nearly impeccable! It is the cleanest, quietest, most comfortable motel one could find in Townsend, Tennessee, and would be welcome relief from the... More

Stayed here for a night while sight seeing the area. The place was OK, but seemed old and dated. Biggest complaint was no hair dryer or iron in the room, had to drive to the office to sign them out. Better deal is to stay in Pigeon Forge (only 15 miles further), hotels are half as much and twice as... More

My husband and I just got home after a few nights in Townsend. We stayed at the Talley Ho on the recommendation of friends who have stayed there many times. We had a second floor room with a fireplace (didn't use that in August) and a jacuzzi. Even though this is an older property, the room, bathroom, and balcony were... More

I didn't plan on riding to Townsend. I had PLANNED on staying in Tellico Plains for two nights but got a wild hair. I looked on my cell phone to see what was offered in Townsend and I kinda tried to remember a few of the nicer rated places. It took longer to get from Tellico Plains to Townsend than... More

My husband, daughter and I stayed for a weekend get-a-way to the smokies. We had no reservations when we happened upon this little gem. Immediatly after looking at the room we knew this was a place for us. It felt like a home away from home. The atmosphere in Townsend is so calm and relaxing. And, the location of the... More

We just spent the weekend at the Talley Ho Inn. This was our annual Studebaker Meet. We have had our meet there for the past several years. It is a beautiful setting for a car show. This year the Talley Ho has been busy renovating their rooms and they did a great job. As usual the staff is very friendly... More

This place has a friendly staff and spacious, clean rooms. The rates are great, too. Breakfast at the Carriage Post is just a short walk away, and you get a discount there when you stay at Talley-Ho. Book by phone instead of online to get a better rate.
