Decent motel. Clean and comfortable. Very friendly owner. Dated motel but was good for a base camp since I was riding the many great roads of the Smokies. Stayed 3 nights but on 2nd night had a cricket somewhere in vents or wall. Lucky I had earplugs. WiFi worked very well. I would stay again. The chairs outside rooms are... More

I don't think the hotel has had a renovation since it was new. Housekeeping does not clean rooms every day if you're staying more than one evening. Bring your own sanitary wipes to insure cleanliness. VERY noisy from all the motorcycles and traffic from neighboring road. There's absolutely nothing to do in Robbinsville. It's a dry country (no alcohol) so... More

Our room was spacious, clean and comfortable. Great location--our group headed out to the Tail of the Dragon the next morning. t was handy to park right outside our room. Ann was a great innkeeper and made us feel right at home.

Stayed one night during peak season, therefore in light of that price probably reasonable. We arrived late and left early next morning, so stay was brief but had everything we needed. Frig, micro nice touch, satellite TV, spotty AT&T cell service in this entire area.

At dark the city rolls up the streets, turns off the lights and lets 3 million crickets loose. Very peacefull and quiet, very clean motel, friendly management. This place was built 40 years ago and still run by the same family. They have kept the rooms modern and maintained them better than most people maintain their homes. Only have 10... More

We stayed here so we could ride the local motorcycle roads. For the price, there's much better options elsewhere. We had to cancel one of our rooms a few days before arriving and were told that although it was 3 days before, they needed a FULL 72hrs (we called at 10:00am three days before arriving). Service wasn't bad, but wasn't... More

Arrived late after doing the "Dragon." Did not have reservations. We were met with open arms and friendly attitude. Room was clean, comfortable, and quiet. This motel caters to motorcycle travelers (which we were). Ann provided information on local eating establishments that proved to be excellent. A bit pricey but worth it.

This motel I have stayed at several times. The owners are a second generation to run this motel. The rooms are large and it's nice to be able to open those screen doors and let fresh air in. I was a little upset that I did rent a roll away bed and did not need it when we arrived. She... More
