My sister found the Alamo online because we were looking for a place to stay in Maggie Valley that allows dogs, and was biker friendly, and boy did she hit the jack pot!
Mike & Dawn own the Alamo and they are the sweetest couple you'll ever meet. The best part is that they do everything there, so you never have to worry about some strange maid or maintenance guy going through your stuff, because after about the first hour, you feel like family! They are so hospitable... anything we needed, they provided. This included PET SITTING!!! It was over the top! We rode all day long (forget the dragon... hit the local fave - the rattler!) and when we got back, we were provided with bike towels to wipe the bikes down, and our dogs were not only walked, but fed as well! Not only that but they came in and comforted one of my dogs when he wasn't feeling so good! They also provide doggie stuff like poop bags, pee pads (our babies go outside) and linens to cover the furniture.
The room was great because the bed is just like your bed at home! Our room had a king-sized pillow top bed with tons of blankets (my hubby likes it like Alaska!), and we also had a queen-sized bed for the pooches. My sister had the room next door, our friend had the room beside hers, and my parents had a cottage on the creek that was soooooo cute. Complete with the sounds of the babbling brook when you sleep...leave the dream machine at home!!!
It's located pretty centrally in Maggie Valley and Dawn & Mike will give you the skinny on all of the local haunts. We went to Hurleys for dinner 3 nights in a row...great spot!
We were on a business/vacation. The first week was vacay, then 3 days of hard work in Asheville, then 2 more days of vacay. Originally we were only going to stay at the Alamo from Saturday night to Thursday morning and then check into a hotel in Asheville, but we loved the place (and the owners!) so much that we kept extending our stay!!! We stayed until the following Tuesday!!! Even though the drive to and from Asheville was 45 minutes each way, it was totally worth it because the scenery is unbelievable!
I HIGHLY recommend the Alamo. We plan on staying there any time we have business in Asheville!
