The Shady Lawn Lodge was an excellent place to spend our evenings while we explored the mountains of North Carolina. The room was very clean, spacious and comfortable, and a mini fridge and microwave was provided in our room as well. The only complaint I have is that the wooden blinds meant to cover the windows blocked the window unit... More

The room was super clean. Loved the shower. Very comfortable accomadations. The best part is the STAFF. We had issues with our car and they went overboard to help us. The area is beautiful.Carolina Barbeque right in town is a casual place to eat. The food is OK. But the staff friendly. Music on the weekends,we enjoyed the group. All... More

We received very friendly service. The rooms were nice and well kept. The air conditioning made it a "cool" place to stay, especially after a day on the mountain. We would gladly choose The Shady Lawn Lodge in the future!

My husband and I stayed at the Shady Lawn Lodge before visiting Grandfather Mountain. It was very clean. The bed was comfortable. The bathroom was very nice with a large amount of counter space. The shower was quite good. It was the perfect place to stay before a visit to Grandfather Mountain!

The front desk staff was friendly and informative. The room was clean, large, and the bed was comfortable, The bathroom was the largest bathroom I have ever experienced in a motel with room for two to dress, lots of mirrors, and a large walk in shower. The A/C could have been easier to regulate, but this area only needs A/C... More

Room was nice and clean. Bed could have used box springs. It was obvious a lot of money was spent on renovation but not much attention to comfort. Like i mentioned no boxsprings, the ice machine did not work and the restaurant was closed. If you needed kleenex a blow dryer or an iron you had to call the front... More

I came to visit Grandfather Mountain for a photo clinic. I will definitely stay here again. Warm reception when I checked in. When I requested a hair dryer and bottle opener, the manager readily helped me. Very clean room and comfortable. I felt very safe staying there alone.

My son and I stayed here for one night during a baseball tournament. Our room was very clean and the beds were comfortable. The room appeared to have been newly remodeled. We especially liked the roomy tile shower area. There is not a tub in this room (9). My only suggestion would be to consider putting deadbolt or another type... More

We had a very enjoyable stay. Our only issue is that the rooms are difficult for the elderly. The beds, while very comfortable, are very low to the floor. Also our bathroom was very tiny so that it was difficult, once again, for my elderly parents to go in and shut the door. The owners were very nice and our... More
