My wife and I enjoy visiting Cades Cove and the quiet surroundings, compared to Gatlinburg, of the Townsend community. The room we booked at the Best Western was large, clean, and comfortable. The staff were very friendly. The continental breakfast was also very good. There were absolutely no problems except the bathtub and sink drains were a little slow, but... More

Rooms are spacious and clean, at least the hot tub suites are. Bed was firm and comfortable with lots of pillows. I've never reviewed toilets before, but myself and others joked at the GUSTO with which those things would flush! Shower head, it's a water saver...plan on a hotter, longer shower. Grounds and exterior are easy on the eyes. Breakfast... More

Good place to stay for Cades Cove visit and no crowds, was higher than I wanted to pay, but expected that since spur of the moment decision trip.. Continental breakfast was wonderful! Overall, clean and up to date. The problems we had were in our room, bedspreads were stained, beds very hard and the sheets made it sound like you... More

My husband, son and I have always wanted to stay here but could only afford their rates in the off-season (winter). Their prices sky rocket from beginning of spring to end of fall. The room was fairly clean (I found a few hairs in bathroom upon arrival - ew!) and breakfast was ok (hot and cold items). Super tiny bathroom... More

Great place to stay if you plan to visit Cade's Cove early in the morning. You can visit the Cove and still get back for a late breakfast and checkout. The motel is modern, clean and has one of the best breakfast presentations for a motel. Hats off to the cook and staff. If you like the quieter side of... More

Very modern, high tec hotel. Breakfast was great. The price was just a little high for an off season stay. Looks like only about 5 guest total. Think it was because other Best Western hotels in area were at least $25 less.

We are repeat guests to the Best Western Cades Cove Inn. Although we have stayed in other hotels in Townsend this is by far the cleanest and most updated of all. From the time we arrive until the time we departed the sataff was friendly and exceeded our expectations. This time the breakfast was dramatically improved over what we had... More

We enjoyed a small getaway here during one of the busiest times, Black Friday. We were able to avoid the crowds and enjoy the park by staying in Townsend. The hotel was clean and updated. We enjoyed our breakfast of pancakes, waffles, and eggs. I thought are rooms were reasonably priced for the area.

We got there late in the night but the staff was still there, awake and ready to serve, very nice. Very reasonably priced. One of the cleanest hotels we have ever been in. Breakfast was amazing, hot and cold choices. Highly recommend.

We found this place through Tripadvisor for a overnight stay. As the reviews state, the rooms are large and clean. The bed was firm and had no sag on the sides like ones at higher priced hotels. I compare it to the Disney budget hotels (music and movie theme, etc) but these rooms were much larger. The room was quiet... More
