I can't tell you the last time I stayed at a Best Western. We were camping and storms were expected to come in, so we bailed on camping our last night and grabbed a room here. 5 of us. We got a double with a roll-a-way. I was bracing for a terrible room. It was spacious! Plenty of room for... More

If you want to stay at the Best Western I would call in advance to get a room because the rooms fill up fast, because of the Festivities for the 4th of July Holiday. It has a great walking path and close to Cades Cove enterance and also to the Townsend Heritage Center and access to the back roads Sevierville.

Newly renovated which is welcomed. Both my dad and I have stayed at this location several times since it first opened as a Hampton Inn many many years ago. Was sorely in need of renovation. Pluses: clean, 5 minutes from Smokies, better than average breakfast, fitness room, flat screen TV, nice cable selection, nice pool area, rocking chairs outside each... More

The staff was very helpful and friendly. The water slide was a great touch for the kids. Breakfast was the best we have had at a hotel in a while. When traveling with children having plenty of room is essential, these rooms were more than accommodating!

This motel is in Townsend, TN, "the quiet side of the Smokies." If you want to stay far "away from the maddening crowd," this is a great choice - very clean and comfortable with courteous, professional staff. Rates were surprisingly reasonable and free breakfast one of the freshest - best I've had in this (intermediate) level of motel chain. Only... More

We stayed for just one nice prior while heading South, from Chicago, to Orlando. This was a good 1/2 way stopping point before continuing on to the Tail of the Dragon. The property was clean and well maintained. In fact, we couldn't tell if it had just been refurbished, or it was recently built. Either way, very nice. The WiFi... More

We had a great stay for a long weekend with some friends. We got 3 rooms close to each other, the check-in and check out were very friendly and quick, rooms were clean and spacious, parking was free and in front of the door, free coffee was in the lobby. Location is great for the Cade's Cove and the mountains.... More

I chose this hotel because of its proximity to the Smoky Mountains National Park and because it was listed as pet friendly. I arrived after 10 pm. Everything in town was closed, and all the hotel had to offer to eat were cookies. The room looks there has been a half-hearted attempt at recent renovations. It was fairly clean, and... More

I do apologize for the noise level, and that our hotel was booked, therefore you could t be moved to another location. However we try to accommodate everyone and if the front desk staff had been called during the issues outside we could have stopped them. We can only ask guests to try and respect others. More
