Dock's is a family owned motel located at the intersection of Hwy 321 and Hwy 73 (which goes into the GSMNP). It is located along the south side of the Little River. History of the motel is available for guests to read. The motel was started by the current operator's grandmother. The wood used in the construction of the motel... More

This was a great place to stay and an absolutely bargain for the money. We stayed in the motel, but you quickly forget you were in a motel as it felt just like a cabin or cottage inside. The inside has the feel of a log cabin and is laid out in a similar fashion. The room had a full... More

We rented the largest cabin (2 rooms) for 3 nights, 2 families with 5 small kids. Everything worked perfectly and the owners are doing a great job, I can only recommend this Motel for those visiting the quiet side of the Smokeys.

Its nice and quiet. The owners work the desk. Its a little dated, but considering where you are the whole area is a little dated. The rooms are clean and it is very good for the price. There are some cabins also. Some of the cabins have hot tubs which can be a plus. I would stay there again.

We loved our stay! Sweet people, excellent accommodations. Private, quiet, lovely view. In heart of the Smokies. Within a few miles of Tremont and Cades Cove. Gas fire place, fridge, microwave, and kitchen supplies. Wifi and TV. Bring your bike! Townsend has bike trails.

My wife and I stayed in one of the River Cabins and it was very clean and well maintained. The cabin is very cozy and a neat little place to stay. It was right on the river and so peaceful. Walking distance to pretty much everything in Townsend and only about 15 miles or so to Gatlinburg. The best part... More

I stay at Dock's every July. I love this place and the owners. Dock's is located in the center of Townsend and close to Cades Cove. I have never been disappointed. Quiet and the rooms are large and I really like that you can pull right up to your room.

Once again, the reviews here were spot on about Dock's. We enjoyed our stay there very much and the price even more. It was so nice to pull right up in front of our room. Not many of those old-fashioned motels left anymore. The room was immaculate. The room was very large. Perfect for our four-night stay. Dock's is close... More

Our room was very clean and the owners proudly display their inspection scores of 100 (facilities plus pool). They did not disappoint. My friend and I were going fly fishing and there was plenty of space in our room to get ready for our day. the room looks like it is from the 1950s but it all looks brand new... More
