Best Western in located on the main road in Townsend, TN. It was kind of OK as far as the bed, TV, breakfast, etc... After I realized I could rent a cabin in the same area for less per night, I would not stay there again. Like most motels, the room door opened to outside so it didn't really feel... More

The rooms are spacious and clean, the employees are polite and professional, the breakfast is great, and the prices are very reasonable. We plan to stay at the Best Western in Townsend any time we're in the area! Highly recommended.

Great place. Had a wonderful stay. Loved our room. Great breakfast. Much better than most. Will stay again. We live close and it is an awesome place to get away. We stayed in the king suite. Very spacious and perfect for us.

Stayed here last night, February 14, 2015. Met three different front desk staff and all were nice and accommodating. The room was cleaner than a lot more pricy hotels I've stayed in but still had a few issues not worth going into. The space around the door was big and the very cold air blew through it like the door... More

Townsend is a beautiful little town just outside the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and a great location for a motel. The motel was clean and neat, breakfast good, and the staff was friendly.However we did have some minor issues. Unbeknownst to us, the sensor for the tv remote was not on the tv, but in the cabinet underneath. We... More

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
