We placed a reservation online for this motel. Our plans have changed and we called to cancel and they were very rude and told us we still had to pay for the room even thought we weren't staying there. The manager is very rude and hostel.

Manager tried to to get a way too high price and sank very fast down to the half of his first demand. It was still too expensive. Two or three times a man knocked on every motel door, I asked him, what he wanted and it seemed he was begging for drugs. The rest of the night I was very... More

Located on Smoky Park Highway main road. Pleasant office manager, clean room & bathroom. Bed a little firmer than I prefer- I like a soft bed. Enough clean towels, coffee pot, microwave, refrigerator, free wi fi and cable TV. Ice machine on premises for the ice chest. All in working condition. Good value for a night or so while traveling.... More

Our room was dirty. Bed sheets had fresh blood stains and other white stains!! Maybe a rent by the hour place!! Everything was filthy! When I complained about the sheets the owner came in our room screaming and swearing at us in front of my 3 year old! Throwing our luggage at us and told us to get the "F"... More

Well first the place was small and dirty. It looks shady and the manager was very rude. He also charged my card for the wrong amount and an unauthorized extra charge to my card. Id highly advise u stay else where.

My husband and I needed a place to crash after a long day of driving. The office staff seemed suspicious and not overly friendly but for $62 that was fine with me. The room had an odd scent but was serviceably clean, not brand new, showing some signs of age in the walls and ceiling. Mattress was cumfy, sheets were... More

This place is a joke! Owners are rude and its really just like a drug hotel! Don't take your kids there. It was so bad we did not even stay the night we left and found another place.

This place was a great place to stay when you are on a budget. Also, with the other hotels having rates in the 100s, this motel had a great low price. The rooms were nice and cozy. In room coffee, refrigerator, microwave, and HBO-which is a plus. Good bang for the buck. The lady at the front desk was nice... More

My husband has a terminal illness & we take advantage of every minute we have together. Even though we only live 45 minutes away, we enjoy getting away from the stress of survival for a few days. We get some food & movies & head to the Whispering Pines for some quiet time together. We have been staying there repeatedly... More

We had a group of four people going to NC on vacation. We got to the area late, most hotels were booked. It was late, we were tired, it was raining, and although we did not like the looks of the hotel much, we decided to stay. We ask to see the room first. The lady that showed it to... More
