“Great value”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 28, 2012

Very clean rooms and bathroom was newly done. Waffles, eggs, cereals, juices, muffins and more - great breakfast included. Friendly staff. Centrally located. We're glad we found this place. Only downside was paper thin walls but we weren't in the room much at all for that to be an issue. 12/28/2012.

We were pleasantly surprised to find this great motel. The rates are very reasonable and excellent hospitality! The rooms were very well maintained and very clean. The view and property was just beautiful. We travel to Bryson City every Christmas as a family and this is definitley where we will stay again!

We normally do not have great luck showing up without a reservation at 9.30pm. Our experience here was totally different.
We experienced a nice clean room and bathroom with a nice modern shower and a clean and quiet room. the rate was reasonable and check in and out was pleasant and quick. A great find and we will be back!

This hotel is perfect. The staff is friendly, the rooms clean, the property well maintained, the views are breath taking, and the location is great. You can't ask for a better hotel than this. When in the area, I would not stay any where else.

We decided to stay at the Best Western when we wanted to shop the quaint places in Waynesville over Thanksgiving. The rates are every reasonable. The accommodations are motel-like, but very clean and well maintained. The bathroom was more than adequate ... we loved the bathtub. The staff is very friendly. If we return to Waynesville, which is a fabulous mountain town near/in Maggie Valley, we will definitely stay there again.

My wife and I stayed here two nights, our first visit to the Smoky Mountain park and Asheville area. While we intended to stay in an Asheville B&B, they were all full, so we picked this hotel, and it couldn't have worked out better. Raised up on a hill, it has beautiful views, made better by the fall foliage. The staff was a delight to interface with, and the room was large and clean, the bed very comfortable. Breakfast was standard fare for such a place, but the staff so helpful. We got good dinner suggestions for places in Waynesville, and ate at two of them, the Sweet Onion, and Pasquale's (would recommend both).
Would happily recommend this place to others.

Room Tip: Rooms on the front side afford the best views of the mountains

We have stayed in the Smoky Mountain Inn for 6 years. It is in a great location for our mountain ramblings. They could do some updating by putting in new carpet but the rooms are a nice size and clean. The beds were VERY comfortable.
