4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

This is a nice motel, we have stayed here several times in past years. It accepts pets and that is primarily why we first stayed here but we were satisfied and have returned after no longer having our pet. Lovely view and easily located with good parking. Rooms are nice but not exceptional. Always clean. Quiet. Nice pool and breakfast.

This is a good hotel at a value price. The rooms are large and clean and appear to be recently remodeled. The front desk staff was very friendly and helpful. The breakfast was your typical hotel breakfast. The location can’t be beat, close to Cades Cove, shopping, restaurants and other activities. We would stay here again.

We were pleasantly surprised by the ample variety of breakfast items (hot and cold options). The room décor was beautiful. The kids enjoyed the swimming pool. I made a special request while booking online, which was accommodated. We had a late check-in, which was not a problem. I absolutely love that the proximity to the Park. We will stay again.

Great place to stay while visiting Cade's Cove. Close to the Foothills Parkway, too. Loved our ground floor room that we pulled the car up to, great breakfast, but get there early. Comfortable bed. Weird that there is no soap by the sink in the bathroom and no plastic bag for dirty clothes. But we enjoyed our stay here.

got in town a day early for our cabin rental and decided to stay on the" Quiet" side of the Smokies. It really was different than the Gatlinburg/Pigeon Forge craziness. Hotel was a deal compared to the ones in Gatlinburg/Pigeon forge and was only about 20 miles away. Caught a free dulcimer concert in Townsend that night . Had great... More

Very clean, quiet, great amenities, pleasant staff. Within walking distance of restaurants, little shops, close to entrance to Cade's Code. Beds were very comfortable, no loud noises to interrupt your sleep, great parking area. Had rocking chairs out front of your room where you could sit and enjoy the cool mountain air and visit with other guests.

Our room was spacious, clean and beds were in good shape. Nicely located in Townsend, which is very small and quiet community. Good place for short trip is swinging bridge located in walking distance from the hotel (less than five minutes). Another good thing is a long trail along the roads - good for walking, running or riding a bike.

Clean room, quiet, convenient location to Smokies. Breakfast was much better than average, would have asked for a couple of menu changes but nothing missing that really hurt the overall experience. Will definitely stay here again if the trip calls for it. Much rather be here than in the busy streets of nearby tourist spots. We were on a quick... More

Great pool & room decor. Great location. Close to the Great Smoky Mountains. Townsend is a fine country town with places to see. Easy way to avoid traffic when going to Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg & the Great Smoky Mountains.
