We stopped here to see a room, called the phone # on billboard, the guy said his wife is on property and they had one room left, upstairs. I told him I have leg issues and he said there's a ramp going up, not stairs. So, my husband went to find wife, and for some still unknown reason to me,...

I have stayed in this motel somewhat ten times over the last ten years the new owners have let it really go down hill over the last 2 years or so. It could be a really nice place to stay beautiful creek behind it BUT the room we had was AWFUL !!! When we arrived I was made to wait...

The motel is fairly basic but also cheap, and let's face it, there's nowhere else to stay. Convenient for visiting the nearby National Park. Locals can be a bit weird if you're not from the South. We are English but no one recognised our accent (just 'Not From Round Here'). Nice stream at the back of the motel.

I really wanted to like this place. On the plus side the view of the creek from the second floor balcony was quite nice. However this was more than offset by my actual experience. I was to stay for two days. My first room had a filthy AC, what appeared to be vomit residue on the covers and black mold...

We stayed here one night in the winter. The room was clean, bed was clean, but I didn't like a shaggy green carpet. The decor was outdated, the bathroom needed updating, but everything was functional...the motel served us well for our purpose. It was for sale recently (not any more) so it may be under a new management now...hopefully, the...

I came to this lovely motel from New York and had requested a bonfire and the manager had set it up very beautifully for my family and I. We sat around it and told stories and made s'mores. This bonfire had given us the opportunity to spend quality time with my loved ones. The rooms were nice and clean and...

I go on last minute all by myself vacations and almost always end up in the mountains....wasn't sure where I was headed but somehow ended up in Cosby lol. I didn't see a lot of places outside of Gatlinburg and I'm not a fan of busy congested places so when navigating side/back roads I found the Cub Motel...I have to...
