The Cardinal Inn was extremely clean and well appointed with modern, comfortable bathroom fixtures. It was quiet and the service was attentive, but not intrusive. It was very conveniently located along Highway 19 making trips to Cataloochee Valley and the Blue Ridge Parkway so easy. That it was pet friendly was what first attracted us, but all the other advantages mean we'll be coming back as often as we can.

Our first stay here was October 2020. It will not be our last, in fact it will be our first choice when we are in the area. We've recommend this place to several friends and family members. The staff and owners go above and beyond they make you feel like family. The room was VERY clean and tastefully decorated. They provided bottled water, popcorn, coffee pods and ice.. even filled our cooler for us. Every evening there was a cozy fire pit we sat around, and best of all they started the fire for us. I wish all trips had a place like this.

What a lovely motel! Very clean, super comfortable beds (like sleeping on a cloud), beautiful room, had a great time with other guests enjoying the fire pit at night, rockers on porch so comfortable, friendly owners willing to do anything to make your stay wonderful. We can't wait to stay at the Cardinal Inn again!

We have stayed at the Cardinal Inn a couple of times. The owners have done a fantastic job with the place. It is well decorated and maintained. Most importantly the owners make you feel welcome and are very outgoing. We will be back.
