We love smaller hotels and mom-and pops and Docks just strengthened the love. The owners truly care about their business as the cleanliness, details, and charm show. We stayed in a river cabin which truly looks over the Little River. It was spacious, quiet, and had the conveniences we needed. Very friendly staff! We will definitely be back!

Just returned from a 4 day family trip to Townsend, TN. Had never been before and gathering information about places to stay was a challenge. It is a good feeling to arrive someplace new, and after seeing all of the other choices you realize you picked the BEST spot. There are 6 of us so we took Cabin 22 right... More

My 18-year-old son and I took our annual father-son trip. The hotel came with good reviews. We got a nice two-bed kitchenette for $86 per night, tax included. The motel is American-owned and family-operated. It features a nice pool, very clean, and there are also cabins on-site for rent. If you like to fish, the river behind the cabins features... More

Stayed in a 1 room cabin with 3 double beds...it was perfect for our 4 grand children that were with us. They loved it! Has great covered deck with rocking chairs and picnic table...the cabin was clean and the refrigerator was super cold. There is a microwave but no stove. Pool was clean and the grounds were kept very neat.... More

Such a wonderful stay. We were late for check-in. They put key and info on door as they live on site and close at 830. Cabin #15 was occupied by 14 of us 6 adults 8 children. It was decorated in 60's/70's furnishings which were in perfect shape. Loved the throwback in time! We had 2 bedrooms with double beds... More

Had a nice time in the area and really enjoyed the motel. Not fancy, just a nice, clean and comfortable place. Sharon (the owner) was a very pleasant person and told us the history of the area and motel. Very nice and clean pool. Quite refreshing the warm weather. Would stay again.

We had the occasion to stay at Dock's for four nights over the 4th of July holiday. Initial communication was a little different. Don't be deterred. I called a couple of times and left messages. Of course when I got the return call...I was unable to answer. I got the best responses using email. We got everything worked out and... More

Sharron was at the front desk and she really went out of her way to accommodate us. We had to change camping plans due to bear activity so we needed another night.

This is an older (3rd generation) motel. My motel room included a fully equipped kitchen and small living area. The room was very clean. The only problem I encountered was that I had NO CELL PHONE SIGNAL in my room, and there are no telephones in the rooms. It was also complicated to change the heat/air settings. There was a... More
