Called at last minute, lucky enough to get a room - stayed two nights! Great hosts, with lots of local info! Easy commute to anything you want to do in The Smokies! Plenty of choices for meals, groceries, and the like!

I rarely write reviews, but I had to this time! Our stay here was wonderful. To start with, Pete was great to work with when booking our rooms. He was very helpful and accommodating. We were planning an extended family and friends trip (annual hike actually) and he made it very easy to book our various rooms. And the prices... More

Highly recommend staying here if you are in the Smokys. Great little town and location, much nicer than Gatlinburg in my opinion. The gateway inn is newly renovated, very clean and comfortable. The staff are great and very helpful and welcoming. Would highly recommend staying here

If you're looking for decor like a Hampton Inn, check into a Hampton Inn. We stayed three nights in one of their cottages. It was spacious, clean and well maintained. However, the big plus were the hosts. Several times we encountered them on the property, and they would ask things like "could you use some extra ....," "I see you... More

I am adding one more great review to all the rest. Townsend Gateway Inn is a wonderful place to stay while visiting the Great Smokies. We stayed in a cabin the first week in August and I cannot find one single negative thing to say. All was excellent.

Someone has taken one of the several old strip motels, and completely refurbished it. When my husband and I made the reservation, we didn't know what to expect, but were very pleasantly surprised. I like rustic, but I like very clean and not shabby. I think it was the lack of carpet and the replaced wood laminate floors that made... More

I booked this Inn because of the reviews I read on here. It did not disappoint. We were allowed to check in early and were made to feel at home right away. The room was updated and super clean. The beds and pillows were very clean and comfy. The staff were constantly working and the rooms were cleaned very early... More

Just returned home from a stay at Townsend Gateway, 8-3/6-14 while exploring The Great Smoky Mountains. This is a top notch facility from the bottom up. The common grounds are well kept, and my king room was spotless and well appointed. Far exceeded my expectations for a small private enterprise. These folks take great pride in their endeavor. Great location... More

Booked this place because of the good reviews. You couldn't ask for a cleaner place. I was a little disappointed we didn't one of the room that had been renovated but everything turned out okay. Bathroom was a little small. The beds were comfy and everything was super clean. That's very important in my book. The only down side was... More

My husband and I chose to stay here July 21-24, 2014 after reading many reviews of motels in Townsend, TN. while we explored the Smokies. We loved it! Colleen and Pete were very friendly and we enjoyed chatting with them about the area attractions and restaurants, as well as other subjects that came up. The grounds are lovely with flower... More
