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

Check in and check out were very quick. They had a quality breakfast with hot items and fresh fruit. Free WiFi was available. The bed was comfortable, making the stay an overall positive experience. The modern amenities and reasonable price made it a better value than other hotels in the area.

It was clean and spacious. The only things missing were a bath mat to step onto when I got out, and a laundry bag. Beds were comfortable, and room stayed at a nice even temp. Breakfast was fantastic! Pancakes, waffles, sausage, eggs, biscuits and gravy.there was also grits, oatmeal, cereal, fresh fruit, juice and an assortment of coffee. I may... More

We happened upon this hotel while passing through Townsend, TN in the Smoky Mountains. We had two rooms and each was well appointed and clean. Our breakfast was as good as any restaurant! Eggs, sausage, biscuits, gravy, grits, fresh fruit, yogurt, varieties of cereal, varieties of juice and coffee, pancake and waffle making machines, toast and bagels, jelly, and cinnamon... More

Very disappointed with accommodations compared to stay in 2013. Had to have bed sheets changed because of rust or blood stains, not sure which. Water pressure not good when taking a bath. Lighting in the bath room and over the vanity was dim; hard for husband to shave and me put on makeup. Breakfast was sub-par; again lighting dim in... More
