“great offseason prices”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 4, 2013

Spring Break! This is how 40 somethings do it--gorgeous mountain golf, good food and great service. The staff at Waynesville Inn exemplify southern hospitality! We really enjoyed our stay. The prices were very reasonable and I felt cared for and comfortable the entire time. Thanks!

Room Tip: historic rooms are not updated, so don't expect fancy upgrades, but the balcony and view is grea...

This place has and awesome 27 hole course and golfnow has really good prices on playing different courses. ($17 for 18 holes). We had a balcony room overlooking the beautiful golf course and mountains. We enjoyed everything surrounding our visit. This was our second trip to the Inn and the food and service was supurb. We will definitely make this an annual visit.

I'm so glad your second stay was just as enjoyable as the first! From the looks of your photos, it was a beautiful, albeit cold, couple of days in the mountains of Western North Carolina. I look forward to your next visit and will make sure to pass along your compliments to the staff. Thanks so much for your continued support!

It was too cold for golf but the course was pretty viewed through the huge picture window in the guest room. If it had been warmer we would have enjoyed sitting ouside on the extra large private balcony. The room was spacious and clean. The closet was as big as a small room, so all our luggage was easily accessible. On the other hand, the bathroom was so small that the door nearly hit the commode. Bedding was comfortable. It was quiet in the room. I would return.

Room Tip: The golf course view room also has a view of the mountains beyond.

We had a lovely weekend here. It is truly a great location but the inn is a bit old and really could use some updating. The bathrooms are very small and the beds are quite soft and the bedspreads are truly hideous! Please do not go to the bar/restaurant to eat- the food is mediocre at best. We have a large group and several of the menu items were unavailable and the alternate choices were not good. The short rib sandwich was very short on meat. The chicken quesadillas tasted like a frozen meal heated up. The service staff are all very friendly and the town of waynesville is a lovely place to visit

My wife and I just visited the Waynesville Inn on another Groupon offer. This time we stayed in a Golfview room instead of the historic part of the Inn. The slight extra cost was definitely worth it.

The Golfview room was much more modern than the room in the historic section and was about 13 x 18 feet (not counting the bathroom or a large walk-in closet). We had a wet bar with a refrigerator, microwave, and coffee maker. There was a desk which worked great for our computer…the free wi-fi worked well and connected easily. The flat panel TV was about 27 inches with many cable channels. There was a small patio outside the room (1st floor) with 2 doors (which also had screen doors for nice weather) opening onto it. The patio provided a good view of the golf course and the mountains in the distance.

The first room had a king bed that was too firm for us….the staff quickly moved us to another room when we requested (and with a smile!). The only other item we noticed was the bathroom lighting was a bit dim. Overall the room was very clean and we were well satisfied. The walk-in closet was a nice feature being roomy and with a table to unload the suitcase on.

Breakfast was mixed on the 2 days we were there. The first day we arrived toward the end of service and found the buffet food was a bit stale. The second day made up for it as we arrived earlier and found the chef making custom omelets which had not been available the first day. The food also seemed much fresher on the second day and the omelets were very good. Having had good breakfasts on our first visit (and omelets both days), we assumed the lower number of guests during this visit and our late arrival may have contributed to the first day not being up to normal standards.

We enjoyed Waynesville with it shops, galleries and several very nice restaurants. We explored the surrounding area going to Maggie Valley as well as Ashville. As one resident told us: “There are no bad drives around the Waynesville area.” Unfortunately, the Blue Ridge was closed due to the time of year and weather.

We look forward to returning to the Waynesville Inn and continuing our exploration of the surrounding area.

Room Tip: Try to get a Golfview room.

Thank you so much for sharing some details about your most recent stay at the Inn. I am happy you found this stay to be just as nice as the first. I do apologize for the poor quality of breakfast on the first morning, as it seems you arrived well within the service hours. I will forward your review to the culinary team in hopes of correcting this problem before your next stay with us. Thanks again for your review and thank you for your continued support.

We asked to stay in the wonderful-looking main building as opposed to the 'motel' looks of the newer rooms. It was a very odd suite that we were in. 2 rooms which included a normal bedroom with 2 double beds, a large dresser & chest of drawers. The sitting room did not have a coffee table or a desk to put a computer on. The television sat on yet another chest of drawers (plenty, plenty of drawer space) but could have been put in a niche in the wall or on a desk. The bathroom was nice enough but the water was very difficult to adjust. As soon as the cold faucet was turned on, the cold water greatly overcame the hot.

The breakfast was lovely and the service good.

Room Tip: Ask for one overlooking the golf course and mountains.

I am very sorry your time with us was not as enjoyable as it could have been. Indeed, we do have some unique configurations in the Lodge, where over the years some smaller rooms have been combined to provide a few junior suite style accommodations. I will make sure to forward your comments to the rest of the management team, though. Thanks for your time in posting a review. If you have any further details to share, please contact me directly.

This old Histrionic Inn was once splendid & grand. It's now in need of some TLC to return to "the Inn" of Waynesville. Our room in the old Lodge was rustic & comfortable, but the shower was not pretty and controlling the water temperature was difficult. The tile grout was covered with mold & it looked like they tried to cover the mold & mildew with white shoe polish. It was brought to management, but nothing was done and no action in the way of customer service. They missed an opportunity to show their Customer Service.

Room Tip: The food in the Tap Room was very good and the rooms with a balcony view of the golf course is nice.
