The Ridge Top Motel is a a great deal.. The rate was very affordable, check in was quick. The owners are very helpful. The room was quiet and clean with comfy beds and a nice view of the mountains. Room had microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Good wifi Will stay here again next time I am in the area.

The owners are so very nice. The location is great. The pool area is nice. The price is ok. Week days are less than weekend nights. But the rooms needs some desperate TLC. The desk is way to big so there is no room left for your "stuff". The A/C needs to be updated.

This mountain top motel is precious. We did not have reservations for the night and just saw a sign at the foot of a hill and started to climb. The motel has around 30 rooms and nice pool. The price was so low we were a little concern about the condition of the rooms. We checked it out and rented... More

This motel was extremely close to downtown Bryson City and was a fantastic price for what you get. The rooms are a little old (CRT TV, window unit AC, etc), but my room was safe, clean, quiet, and comfy. The internet often did not work, but you're vacationing in the mountains so that really shouldn't matter. The covered pavillion area... More

If you are used to anything better than Motel 6 than don't bother. The only positive is the pool. Couldn't hardly move through the room because of the office desk. Hair in the tub. Woke up to a bug walking across the floor. Bathroom has no counter space.

We always enjoy our visit to the Ridge Top Motel. Sanjay and Rena work very hard maintaining their motel and keeping it clean for their guests. We enjoy sitting on the front porch or on the porch outside our rooms smelling the fresh mountain air and listening to the birds sing. We will be back on our next visit to... More

Our room didn't have the mountain view we were hoping for, however, it was very clean and the bed was exceptionally comfortable. The furniture was a bit large for the room and outdated, but it kind of added to the overall feel of the room. Coffee maker was even there, with mini fridge which made for an easy stay. Staff...

This hotel was small, and kinda antiquated, but very comfy. Also the staff was very friendly. The location is beautiful. For the money this was easily one of my best buys in a hotel. Also, if you have fur kids, its an animal friendly motel, which is unusual in the Cherokee area.
