Cool place. Wanted a decent place to sleep before camping in GSMNP. Price was awesome - room very tidy and the bed was actually quite awesome. Dude who checked us in was friendly and eager to please. Highly recommend!

There are not a lot of options in Townsend and we booked 2 rooms at the Townsend Gateway Inn based on other reviews we had read in early June. I received a phone call from Pete in early August to let us know the system had mistakenly booked two rooms but there was actually only one room with 2 queen... More

This is a fabulous place to stay at a fabulous price! The owners were so friendly and the snack basket everyday was a nice touch. Its proximity to the National Park and Cades cove can't be beat. It was truly quiet and relaxing with very little traffic noise at night. I will definitely be back!

Deceptively pleasant place. Cabins are a lot nicer looking in the inside vs what you think you're you're getting, from the outside. We stayed in a cabin for 5 nights in August 2014.. Manager was supremely hospitable and helpful. We enjoyed the welcome basket goodies and when I informed him that I couldn't eat some of them he included some... More

If I tell y'all how nice this little place is...then it is going to be even harder for me to get a reservation next time. They may just have to add a few more rooms . We are very happy to find this jewel of a local motel. Small place, owners live on property, very close to Smokey Mountain National... More

We booked a double queen room at Townsend Gateway Inn based on reviews from tripadvisor and were not disappointed. We tend to be in the national park all day so we just need a clean comfortable place to shower and sleep and TGI is just that. The daily snack/coffee basket was a great way to grab a cup of coffee...

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!
