This is the second time staying at this hotel and it was as great as the first. The room has hardwood floors and very comfortable beds. The front desk people were great and very friendly and helpful. The only gripe I have is the postage stamp pillows that every chain is going to. I hate them. Lol. You cant go...

Stayed here recently for a weekend trip to the Plateau. For an over night stay in Monteagle, this place has all you'd need. Clean rooms. Comfy beds. Friendly staff. Right off the interstate, so it's convenient to Sewannee or Monteagle.

It was 1030 at night and I was heading to Nashville with my baby and his sitter. I saw the Best Western sign and I got a room. There was no fridge in the room, little black bug flying around and the ceiling was peeling in the bathroom. It definitely has a mountain look to it and everything is wood...

Monteagle's Best Western Smokehouse Inn combines rustic style with modern amenities - i.e., roadhouse exterior with great high-speed internet. Staff at the hotel are very friendly and helpful. The restaurant serves excellent southern-style cuisine, and the gift shop offers a range of semi-local delicacies for sale. This is certainly our favorite place to stay in Monteagle, though, to be fair,...

We loved this place. It was very rustic, yet extremely clean. The bed was very comfortable. We will definitely stay here again. The food at the restaurant next door was also excellent, and it was a very interesting place to browse and shop.

What a great surprise to stumble on this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable. They also have free standing cabins and a great restaurant. Grounds have activities, pool and pond. It really is a destination hotel. The restaurant and gift shop reminded me of a Cracker Barrel on steroids. This place was awesome.

We get compared to Cracker Barrel often, and many folks say that CB may have gotten their idea from us. Anyway, we appreciate your comments and we always appreciate your business. Please stop in on your way thru, or come up for a family getaway! Thanks! The Smoke House Gang Since 1960

The beauty of the mountains coupled with clean, up-dated rooms that still reflect the charm & beauty of a mountain-top Lodge. Excellent staff, facilities on site, clean rooms.....just a great place! And pet friendly.

Thanks for your comments on our remodeling, we are still working on it and knocking out more and more everyday. We are getting many comments from customers about this renovation, and we are glad to be getting it done. We want the Smoke House to be Nostalgic and Vintage, but worth what we charge too.

I stayed at this facility on 24 April 2014 which was well-aware I am a Physician, hence sleep was essential.

Yes, athletic teams are sometimes hard to keep quiet, and the kids do stay up later hours than adults.
