We love the ambiance this motel offers. Love sitting out front on the rocking chairs and getting to know other guests. The family that runs this motel offers exceptional customer service - always there to help! Rooms are neat and clean.

We stayed here five days ago on our way to Myrtle Beach. We stayed in one of their cottages/cabins and it was wonderful. Mike at the check in desk was very nice and gave the kids a basket full of snack foods. The view out the front was beautiful and it was an easy drive to Cade's Cove in Smokey... More

We only stayed one night, but would have loved to stay much longer. The check in was fast and we were given all kinds of great advice about breakfast choices for the next day. The welcome basket that was brought to the room was a nice touch and full of things we both liked. My husband quickly pointed out how... More

I rarely write reviews, and I certainly don't write reviews less than 2 hours after getting the key to the room!!!! So this is a testament to how impressed my wife and I are with this place. We were greeted so warmly by the owner, she was very sweet and polite, not to mention very helpful. She offered lots of... More

Love this part of the Smoky Mountains and this is a great place to stay. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. It is so reasonably priced. It is family owned and operated. They are always present, very friendly and accommodating. Love the snack basket they replenish each day. Easy access to Cade's Cove for early morning or late evening... More

One of the cleanest rooms I've found as far as motels go. Older motel but fully redone. Comfortable Clean and friendly staff. The fruit basket was an awesome surprise. Great location for someone going to Cades Cove.

We enjoyed our stay at the Townsend Gateway Inn. Colleen is such a gracious hostess! The rooms are very clean and spacious. The owners are so thoughtful to provide the welcome basket with plenty of good snacks. We enjoyed sitting in the rockers viewing the beautiful mountains and the wonderful walking trail in front of the hotel. We will definitely... More

exactly what we want, near the airport, with free wifi and kitchen, laundry, every stuff we need. It would be great to have a hair dryer, cause we met unexpected rain there. It is so quite that just like we are living in the great smoky mountain.

I loved this hotel from the nice welcoming basket filled with goodies to the beautiful hard wood floors. Our room was so clean and kept we felt like we were in a 5 star hotel. We will definitely be coming back to this little Gem in the smokies!
