We stayed here based on prior reviews. This motel reminds me of a true old style vintage motel. Like the ones I remember from family vacations with our station wagon parked in front of our door. However the rooms are CLEAN and updated with hardwood floors, new quiet heat/air units, and comfy bed . It is off the beaten path... More

The last time we were in the area we stayed in Pigeon Forge which was frankly awful. This time after several thousands of miles on the road we stayed at the Gateway in and it was wonderful. Quiet, in a great location for walking and really comfortable despite the sub-zero temperatures. We were also able to walk a short distance... More

This was our first stay at The Townsend Gateway Inn, and know it will not be our last. We had not planned the trip, in fact we decided at lunch and started looking for a room and then we found The Townsend Gateway Inn, and boy we are glad we did. The room had a vintage feel with wonderful modern... More

We stayed at this hotel over Valentine's weekend. We brought our pet so needed a pet friendly hotel. The rooms were nice and clean, with no carpet and no pet odor. The owners have done a great job renovating this older property. The bed was very comfortable. Pete, one of the owners, was very nice and brought us a goodie... More

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
