This place is great! Rooms are exceptionally clean with a touch of class. The wall mounted shower gel, shampoo and hair conditioner dispenser was a very nice feature. The basket of goodies that they bring to you upon arrival was such a nice touch and they refill them every day. I will definitely be visiting the Townsend Gateway Inn again!

My husband and I decided at the last minute to run up to Townsend during a 5K weekend. Most everything was full, but we were lucky the Townsend Gateway Inn had room for us! Next time it will be the first place we look! It's a good value for the price. The room was nicely decorated, quiet, and very clean.... More

Charming little room, friendly service, very clean. Free wifi that worked perfectly. Firmer mattress than what I prefer but we rested well. The hotel is set back from the road and was very quiet. The room we stayed in was newly remodeled. Had a fridge and microwave.

I stayed for 5 nights in a room (they have rooms or cottages available). First off, the staff was just so great! They were helpful, friendly, accommodating. It was such a nice thing to arrive to after a 10.5 hour drive. My room was clean and spacious. The linens were clean and fresh (always important) and the room itself was... More

Lovely touch with the baskets - really enjoyed the contents. All very clean. sadly a little run down. Our room smelt quite damp although no visible signs of damp and the... More

It's a clean place. You get a few snacks in a basket everyday. Wifi isn't good. We had to sit outside our room to get it to work. Bathrooms are clean but a little run down. Owners are nice and so is the staff.

What a gem! Loved the large spacious rooms and the proximity to the entrance to the park. The beds were very comfortable and it was very quiet. Loved that the floors were laminate wood and not carpet. Very clean room and I'm very picky!! My only complaints would be the showers water pressure and the need for a rug inside... More

We like to stay in Townsend when we visit Great Smoky Mountains National Park because it is such a peaceful little town. This was our first stay at the Gateway Inn but it won't be our last. The owner greeted us with a coffee & snack basket tailored to our tastes (it was replenished daily). The inn is an old... More
