My husband and I stayed here on our anniversary trip recently. We booked 4 nights here, but when we decided to leave early, the owner graciously refunded us the unused portion of our stay. Our hotel room was very nice and clean. We had a small problem with the satellite and the owner came in and fixed it immediately. Very... More

This is a very nice place for the money and location. We have stayed here at least 3 times and have been pleased every time. The last time our bed was too soft but I realize that is a personal preference. The room is always clean and the staff friendly and attentive. The welcome basket is a nice touch. We... More

These people are the nicest you will ever meet and look to take care of you in every way possible. My wife and I have stayed here a few times and have never been disappointed. Always very clean and fresh and convenient. You park right at your door. Great for motorcycles and if you want to keep an eye on... More

Our visit to the Gateway Inn was November 21 through November 23, 2014. We had to call for a late check in, which was no problem for the staff. We stayed in Room #4. It felt spa-like, large and beautifully remodeled with hardwood laminate on the floor and a tile bathroom. The king size bed had crisp, white linens; one... More

This was our first stay and won't be our last. We stayed in a double room and while the motel has been around forever, the owners have updated and made it very nice with wood floors, granite counter tops and tile in the bath. Very clean and comfortable. A snack basket is provided each day and it was perfect for... More

Just returned from another 3 night stay at the TGI. This was our 3rd stay in the very same room #6. It's so quiet and non pretentious. The bed was comfortable with new linens and the basket of goodies each day was really great. We took those snacks with us as we explored the Smokies each day. The room was... More

Besides the motel-style rooms, the Inn has 3 identical cottages. The cottages have 2 rooms, one a bedroom, the other, a sitting room including refrigerator. The cottage was very clean and comfortable. All the hotels in Townsend are along the main road to Cade's Cove. However, we were surprised that we did not hear much traffic noise at night. We...

The hotel is a relaxing place to stay. The staff informed us of great local places to eat and places to visit. Our room was very clean and comfortable. We were presented a snack basket filled filled with delicious items. We are looking forward to our return visit.

First time in Townsend, but it won't be the last! Stayed in one of the cabins, it was clean, had plenty of room for 2 people, very quite, I liked that it was a small place not a big box hotel, affordable and perfect location to GSMNP. The owners were very knowledgeable of hiking trails, always asking if there was... More
