Needed a room for one night so after reading what people had said about Headrick's on a FB page I belong to, I called. The man I talked to was very nice and said he had a room on the upper part of the motel. It is up the hill from the original motel and is newer. They have 2... More

Was looking for a simple, quiet getaway for the weekend and found Headricks River Breeze just the ticket. Rooms were very clean and well cared for if a bit dated. The couple that own and run the motel were as nice as anyone could hope for. Prices were a genuine bargain.

This is not a fancy motel but a great place to stay. The owners are very friendly. Our room was large & had a full size refrigerator & a microwave. We loved the rockers on the balcony. We were on our motorcycle & the battery went dead. We hadn't had dinner yet & no place delivered. The owners told us... More

Stayed here for three nights with my 9 year old son. The room was very clean, beds comfortable, large bathroom. We stayed in the upper part of the hotel, on the hill behind the office and the view was good. There were three rocking chairs just outside our room, great for watching the sun rise each morning. We had plenty... More

We decided last minute to come to the smokies for the weekend. We like Townsend because it's quiet but still close to the action! I started calling motels getting rates and found this little gem. The price was excellent, clean rooms, nice pool, friendly staff. It's not the Hilton but we weren't looking for anything fancy just a nice quiet... More

Our first trip to the "quiet side" of the Smokies was made even more pleasant by our stay here. Our room was in the upper level so we had a balcony overlooking the mountains. The facilities are very clean, and kept up very well - utilitarian but comfortable. The location off the highway is convenient to the entrance to the... More

Townsend is a gateway to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Headrick's pool was already open in early June - only problem is, it was raining. Proprietor was very accommodating, While the place isn't snazzy, we really didn't want Gatlinburg! we stayed in one of the motel rooms, but cabins are available too. I'd stay here again.

We have stayed here for a couple visits and always return! Cleanest place I have stayed! REALLY!! Full size fridges and coffee makers in every room + 2 pools! get a balcony room if you can... it's worth it! Great views and Dan & Brenda make you feel like family! We will go out of our way to stay here!
