Housekeeping... Ha if you call it that they have like 2-3 hour period in mornings where you get... More

It may not be the most up to date as others have said but it's a great price for the area. And I love the lobby where you can play games with family at large tables. They supply puzzles or you bring your own games. And the decks are nice. The indoor pool is awesome, especially when it rains out... More

Friendly staff, clean rooms,decent amenities, great location. Certainly this facility is 10+ years behind in needing a renovation. The roof above be pool was scary looking and we were worried it may fall in. So, yes it is way outdated, but for the money it was way way worth every penny. I certainly hope this place gets renovated real soon,... More

Initial outside appearance of lodge gives one pause. However interior very well maintained with friendly helpful staff. Not all pay entertainment items in main lodge were functioning and free coffee was frequently out. Larger units could use more than one bathroom.

Review collected in partnership with Armed Forces Vacation Club

We just stayed here for a week. We basically just need somewhere to sleep because we are on the go each day. The most important thing for us is cleanliness and it was a very clean unit. Furniture was old but functional. Common areas were also in need of updating (especially the carpet). We were in a studio and it... More

Smoketree is comfortable and pleasant. The rooms have a kitchenette fully equipped with flatware, pots and pans, dishes, and classes. It is conveniently located with Ingles and other stores nearby to purchase groceries. Or you may prefer to eat out at nearby restaurants. There is a hot tub and an indoor pool available for your pleasure. The staff are very... More

The accommodations at the Smoketree Lodge on NC Hwy 105 were not as expected. The photos online look great, but the actual room we stayed in was not like the photos. The bed was very firm and the pull out sofa was very soft with all the cross bars very uncomfortable and almost impossible to sleep on. The redeeming qualites... More

very old rooms, the one we were assigned (an RCI timeshare Resort) furniture, carpets not to mention that we were in a room under the 'hotel'. NOT a good experience and would not recommend, especially for a TimeShare.

Location was very dated, floor in our unit went downward toward middle. i would give it a 6 out of 10 on clean scale. Mattresses, pillows and linens were low quality. Not sure where they got the dinette set but it was good quality, I think all wood...very heavy. Two burner electric cooktop, and stocked kitchenette, compact frig and microwave,... More
