Find the hotel at hotels.com, and when we arrived it was a surprisingly friendly staff at the reception. The room where clean and the bathroom in excellent condition, with all what you need. Unfortunately we didn't have any bathing suit with us, so we couldn't try the pools. Breakfast was superb, and the popcorn served between 7 and 10 pm,... More

HOTEL’S FAVORITE REVIEW
5 of 5 stars Reviewed 1 week ago

After leaving another hotel down the road because of cleanliness issues, we selected this great inn. The staff was happy to show us a room prior to checking us in, and they obviously take pride in providing great service. (Even the remote was sanitized and wrapped in plastic.) The room passed my wife's, a nurse, inspection and the breakfast was... More

The booking on the phone with Danielle was great, easy and accommodating. As we checked in around 9pm Tuesday night we were greeted with smiles and fun humor. Excellent. The free breakfast was great. The only thing I would change would be to possibly switch up the meat or have a choice. After a few days of same meat. But... More

The room was right across from the elevator and vending/ice machines. I was fearful. But amazingly - This was the quietest room I have stayed in, in years. (And I travel several times a year for business.) Each evening we'd come back to the hotel after a day of seeing the sights to be greeted by complimentary Sweet Tea and... More

My husband & I decided to try this place out since it was one of the top on TripAdvisor. We were pleasantly surprised at how clean it was!!

When we walked in the first thing we saw was an open Bible and a bookmark with a prayer for our stay. It is very clean, the staff is excellent and it is very peaceful. Walking by the river was so pleasant and relaxing. I can't remember where we've stayed that was any nicer for the price. Will definitely stay... More

Very nice hotel with many amenities! We had a room with a balcony on the 4th floor. Enjoyed watching the ducks & Canadian geese in the Little Pigeon River. Outside breakfast area is very nice, with a long bar, tables, & rocking chairs. It's a wonderful place to eat & start your day! Unfortunately, breakfast items are the same every... More

The room was spacious and well designed. We loved the breakfast and being able by the water. Other guest seemed very happy and the staff was great. Will definitely stay here again and would highly recommend. We stayed in 101 which was good for my husband.

Without a doubt the nicest hotel I have ever stayed at. This is a totally remodeled hotel that has everything you could imagine.

Easy check in. Office checked if room was good shortly after arriving. Breakfast exellent. Very clean. Entire Staff Friendly and Helpful. The most helpful was the Clerk working Sat. evening (R.R N.). Can't remember her name, but helped us in planning a return visit in Sept. with special needs for elderly family member. Thanks for wonderful stay.
