We had no reservations. Room was very small, quaint . Comfortable, no amenities. Bathroom was extremely small, needed new fixtures. Shower only. We have stayed there on previous trips and rooms were adequate.

This is an older hotel but very well maintained and clean. We have stayed several times and are booked for two more visits this year. The pool is nice, the views are great and the price is very reasonable. They accept AAA and other discounts.

This is an older, family run business, closest to park entrance can't beat the location for convenience and avoiding the commercialism of Gatlinburg. Most rooms have a lively read view of the hills towards the Smokies, some with patios or balconies. Note that there are many variations in the rooms so ask for what you want. Ours was in the...

Only issue we had was spotty Internet when in the room and the restaurant want open for dinner when we tried to go around 8:00 on a week night. Not sure if they have seasonal hours or what. We managed to find... More

This motel is an older property and dated inside but very clean and comfortable and had comfortable mattresses and good bed covers, The toilet is a an older small round one that is strange today as most all have been converted to the longer versions. The lobby has... More

I stayed her last year and had a much better experience. The accommodations were adequate but not outstanding. Overall the room was clean, the only drawback, the shower curtain had a sour smell. One positive note, the parking area is right at your door. So, carrying items from your vehicle to your room is convenient. Other items that draw from... More

Great place. Clean and well managed. Upon arrival we were given the keys to check out several rooms and pick the one we wanted. we went with the one in the back with the Jacuzzi and fireplace. Really a nice peaceful place. We will for sure stay here again......

The Talley Ho Inn is fabulous, very clean and the staff are extremely friendly. This place is the epitome Southern Hospitality! We were there with a group of Fiat drivers - a total of 150 and almost 300 people - the folks at the Talley Ho exceeded our expectations!

This inn on the top of a hill is absolutely charming. There are various types of accommodations but I prefer the small rooms with queen beds. My choice was room number 28. The check in desk is manned in a most pleasant manor by Mike. The hotel books out in advance so it's best to reserve well in advance. It's... More

I stayed at the Talley Ho Inn for a photography workshop. Their prices on rooms were reasonable, and we got a discount for being part of the group. The man I talked to on the phone was really helpful and kind. I felt like he was rolling out the red carpet for me. The room was spotless and had a... More
