The motel is parallel to the road, but set way back from the road. From our room, our view beyond the road was of Little River and a spillway with some rapids below that. The spillway made a great waterfall sound. Between that waterfall sound, the heat & air blower and the insulated windows, we couldn't hear the outside traffic... More

My sister and I are not big shoppers. We came to area just to veg out and see nature. This hotel is perfect for a quiet getaway. Very, very, clean , hardwood floors, comfortable beds, small fridge, and even a gift basket with fresh treats every day of our stay. Less than 10 miles to Cades Cove, which is where... More

We chose this Inn based on the reviews. They were all correct, it is a great place to stay. The area is quiet, the rooms are clean and the owners provided a goodie basket. We would recommend this to all and will stay here again when we return to the area. The only downfall was the room next to us... More

Just got back from staying 3 nights and was a very nice stay. Owner was very cordial and helpful with whatever needs there was. Room was very comfortable and had everything you needed. And loved the goody basket that they refilled daily. The Rocking chairs on our front porch added a warm homey feel. But most of all, they welcomed... More

Recently stayed here. Close to Cade's Cove. Room very clean. Owner left basket with snacks/muffins. A very nice touch. Quiet area in the Smokies with a few restaurants in the area which were convenient. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to this area.

We stayed 3 nights and was a very nice stay! The beds are comfortable, rooms are very nicely decorated and updated. The owner had the heat turned on when we arrived, very cozy. We received a "goody basket" daily, very nice touch. Will for sure stay here whenever we are in Townsend.

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we booked three nights. We checked in on New Years night somewhat late. It was a chilly night and the owner had the light on in our room and had turned on the heat so that the room was welcoming and comfortably warm when we arrived. At check in, the owner asked if we...

We had been staying at a different location in Townsend when a terrible storm came and knocked out all power and running water at our remote cabin. We couldn't reach the management company and weren't comfortable staying somewhere remote without power or water, so we packed up, called Townsend Gateway Inn, and were able to get a last-minute booking in...

After leaving Gatlinburg a day early because of a cabin rental fiasco, I called and made a reservation at the Townsend Gateway Inn. What a delight! This will now be my new "go to" lodging when visiting the GSMNP. As a former RV'r, I watched this motel remain closed, and wished someone would come along to restore and reopen it.... More

Great motel. Nice staff. Very clean. Large rooms. I would definitely stay here again. No carpet in the rooms, instead hardwood floors. The owners provide a little snack basket and asked me if I preferred, coffee or tea. They customize it to their guests. The motel is older, but the bathroom fixtures were all modern and new, the paint was... More
