“It's a Best Western”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 26, 2013

One of the Best Western chain which means that you get exactly what you might expect and that is a traditional two storied open fronted motel which is clean and reasonably comfortable and all for a reasonable price. This motel conformed to that.

The breakfast wast the worst I have had at a Best Western despite a sign to he contrary outside advertising an "unbeatable breakfast".

Stayed at this hotel for 3 nights. The room has been recently updated was clean and a very spacious. The breakfast was good and hotel personnel were pleasant and helpful. The property was well maintained with a pool which I used. It was perfect stay on the peaceful side of cades cove. A good motel for a stay in Townsend or exploring the whole area. I will return next year.

Room Tip: For the best sunset views choose a room on the 2nd floor pool side.

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Cade's Cove Inn and when we are in the area we will be back!! The rooms and grounds of this hotel are clean and neat. The hot breakfast every morning offered many options and enjoyed them all.Our room was only a few steps from the pool/patio area which was nice for my grandkids! The rocking chairs outside the rooms give this hotel a nice touch! No complaints, our stay was very pleasant!!

This is the 3rd time we have stayed at this hotel, although it was previously an Econo Lodge and I must say the breakfast they now have is an improvement over the old one of muffins, cereal, and bagels.

We stayed here because we wanted to be away from the busy part of Pigeon Forge and closer to Cades Cove. It was our first time ever staying at a Best Western. The staff was friendly and the room was clean. We slept good! Check out was lightening fast. Looking forward to staying here again soon!

This property was very, very, very, clean and fresh. All of the furnishings were new, or at least appeared new.Our room was on the second floor above the pool. The pool was inviting but we were too busy to swim. It looked clean. Parking was not very close to our room. Their breakfast was very good and filling. It was advertised hot but was not very. Didn't see a microwave to warm anything either.
Property is very close to Cades Cove and the East Foothills Parkway. Great for early morning wildlife in the cove and sunsets from the parkway.

Room Tip: Book a mountain view room. The view is worth asking for one.

Great place to stay if you want a quick getaway at a great price. Wonderful view of the mountains. Breakfast could use a little upgrade. The staff was very friendly and accommodating. Very little noise, even though a few motorcycle enthusiast were there s well.
