“Our first anual small bike rally”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 23, 2012

Rae and I carried a small group with us this time. We had 5 rooms booked total and Dawn & Mike treated the ours as if they had been there as many times as we had! We ran into some rain on Monday the 21st and Dawn knew this so she took it on herself to make sure heat was on for all of us then offered to dry any wet clothes any of us might have. This made our fifth time staying and each time we are surprised by how we are greeted and we recieve hugs from Dawn, this time Dawn even called to make sure we got home ok, find that in a big chain motel-won't happen! Our group is already talking about next years trip, our personal mini rally. These two people are more than business people-they are people people. Rae and I love them to death and there was no talk about the group staying any where else.

Room Tip: no pool or restaurant but don't need them, pleanty of delivery for you

We stayed with Dawn and Mike for just one night and already feel like family. We will be back in July for a week with them. The rooms are the cleanest we have stayed in. The whole place gives you a homey welcoming feel. I cannot beging to tell you how great the beds are. We have stayed in several hotel/motels in our traveles and these are by far the best. Dawn and Mike go out of their way to make you feel welcome and they are also dog friendly, which means a lot!

Room Tip: there are no bad rooms. They have big and small rooms and one, and two bedroom cottages.

My grown children and I stayed in cabin 15 for two nights last week, and Dawn and Mike made us feel entirely at home. It was calm, relaxing, and just a wonderful place to stay. We will definitely go back there the next time we stay in Maggie Valley!

After reading the wonderful reviews about this place we booked a few days to stay. Everything said about Dawn and Mike is the truth - they truly are pet lovers and really nice people. We rented a room and it was clean and had everything that we needed in it. We would definately stay again. Don't expect the Ritz but if you want a nice, clean room for a reasonable price, this is it.

If you are traveling with your pet, look no further, as this is by far the best experience I have had with our dog. Dawn and Mike are the most caring, helpful, thoughtful owners who went out of their way to assure our stay was a wonderful experience. The rooms are clean, neat, cozy and comfortable, and the grounds were very quiet at night (no barking dogs!). This was our first time traveling with our dog (although we have gone to Maggie Valley every year for the last 20, we found ourselves with no one to watch our dog) and I was very nervous about having to leave the dog in the room while we went out, but my fears were unfounded at the Alamo. Dawn even offered to walk our "Canoe" for us if we needed her to. We will definitely stay here again, and recommend it highly. Diane, David and Canoe

Rae and I stayed with Mike and Dawn 4 times last year, and matter of fact already are planning our first trip for 2012 and we will staying with them again!!!!! These two peole are awesome! they make sure your stay with them is unforgetable, on the last trip I carried my Lab with us as i could not anyone to "baby sit" for us. Not only did Dawn make Rae and I feel at home, she made Cookie feel at home from walking her twice a day to giving her goodies. They are very pet friendly as well as people friendly. We will be going in May for a 5 day bike ride with friends and have asked the others in the group to stay with us there also, because I know how they will be treated. I can not say enough good about Mike and Dawn.

We were new to the Alamo when we stayed there during the first week of November. My wife and I brought our golden retriever with us since this motel is dog friendly. Dawn and Mike keep their place clean and neat! Dawn loved our Golden and welcomed her. We stayed in one of the motel rooms. The areas surrounding the motel were decorated with things appropriate to the season. We felt welcome. The room was warm and inviting. There was plenty of room to walk our golden without having to leave the property. It was quiet at night and we slept well. This is a wonderful place to stay when visiting the sights of the area and it would be equally nice for just taking it easy and sitting around. The area was pretty laid back and conducive to a restful get away.
When we stay in Maggie Valley again we will stay here. I have no complaints about our stay.
