“LOVE THIS PLACE!!! Pet Friendly, Biker Friendly, We're telling everyone we know to stay here!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 4, 2011

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!

The owners keep these rooms spotless. Although some of the furnishings are outdated and the building is older, the rooms are extremely clean and smell nice and fresh. They are a pet friendly hotel, but there is no sign of any other dogs as fars as odors or droppings on the grounds. We stayed for a week with our dog and enjoyed our time here very much. The bed was comfortable and the water pressure in the shower was good and strong. The owners are friendly and went out of their way to see that we didn't want for anything while we were their guests. We have recommended this motel to family members, all of them had positive things to say and were satisfied with their stays as well.

We stayed the weekend of May 13-15 and would like to say that everything from booking our rooms to check out was awesome. The rooms were cozy and very neat and nice. Dawn and Mike made sure we had everything we needed. Even furnished a blanket for my sweetie to carry to the rally Saturday nite. I will stay with them again. i'm already trying to plan my next bike ride up there. First time on bike but can not remember how many times in cars since a child. Mike and Dawn helped make this a very memorialable weekend.

I stayed in Cottage 15 with my Husband and Father-in-Law on a work-related trip. Dawn and Mike are great. The cottage had two bedrooms and two full baths. As we were working, the fully equipped kitchen came in handy. We were able to prepare dinner on our own every evening. We slept like babies every night. While the cottages are older, they are clean and comfortable. The owners went out of their way to help us. We were installing flooring in a cabin in the mountain and our clothes were pretty dirty. Dawn offered to wash them for us! We left the clothes for her in the morning and they were washed and folded when we came home. If you are looking for a nice, family-owned experience, definitely stay here. It was a breath of fresh air compared to corporate hotels and motels. When we come back to the area, the Alamo will be our first pick. Dawn and Mike made us feel like family, not patrons. Wonderful place.

Dawn & Michael were so accomodating. You can tell they really enjoy what they do, and they absolutely love pets! The rooms are VERY clean, and you have everything you need and nothing you don't. The location is great to be close to the Smoky Mountains Park and a short trip to drive to Asheville. We hope to come back soon!

What an awesome little place! Dawn and Mike are so friendly and down to earth. They make you feel right at home. This quaint little place was perfect for our stay with our daughter and little dog. The room was super clean and very good value for your money. I love the fact that it was pet friendly. It was exactly what we needed since we didn't have a sitter for our dog. We usually stay in upscale hotels, but gave this little place a chance since it was pet friendly and would stay there again without question. It's close to just about everything you need. Dawn even has little flyers printed up that tells you (in detail) how to get to various places around town.

Dawn and Mike were great greeted us upon driving up and our dogs ran to Dawn. They helped make a family reunion with my sons who live in NC, so great taking care of my boys getting them a cottage without notice. We will make more stays at the Alamo. Walt and Terry Yeomans Palm Coast FL
