The Talley Ho Inn is a pleasant and relaxing place to stay. Our family has been staying here several times per year during the last 20 years. The units are clean, beds are comfortable, and the staff is very pleasant to deal with. There are two small houses that accommodate small groups. Our family has utilized these houses for Christmas...

My husband and I have stayed at Talley Ho on several occasions and with family too! Of all my vacations this has to be the most relaxing place to visit of them all. The rooms are always so very clean and they have the most "at home" atmosphere. The owners see to it that visitors are happy and they make...

Quaint, comfortable rooms. Retains feel of original Smokies lodge it was, but has been completely renovated. Sparkling clean and MUCH more charming than a chain hotel! Lovely pool and view of mountains too.

My husband and I spent two days in the Smoky Mountain National Park primarily in Cade's Cove. When we drove through Gatlinburg I was shocked at how crowded and commercial it had become since the last time I was there years ago. We wanted a nice quiet simple place to spend one night and found it in Townsend at the...

I returned for a 3-day stay at Talley Ho. It was very nice, certainly comfortable, very clean, and the people were friendly and helpful. Best feature hardly mentioned in reviews? The showers. I stayed in one of 'the original' rooms (#132). Just as my previous room (#124) the water is old school: strong volume and instantly hot. This has got...

There is considerable variation from room to room. Ours were up the hill had excellent views from a balcony. It was probably more recently built was roomy and in very good condition. Inspect first. Do not expect luxury and you should be well satisfied. HJ B.
