The Townsend Gateway Inn is an older property with rooms that have been very well updated. The welcome was warm and check in was very swift and efficient. The personal visit to the room by the owner to be sure everything was well was a very nice touch. The gift basket which he brought was also wonderful. My only complaint... More

This place was great. The only reason I didn't rate it excellent was because it was a little tight as far as sleeping for our family of four with two teens. There is a futon type couch which was very hard for sleeping and tight for an 11 & 13 to sleep on. Other than that, super cute accommodations in... More

We stayed in cottage 1. The outside of the cottage looked a little 'worn' with peeling paint, but inside was great. Updated and clean. I am VERY picky about my accommodations, but I felt very comfortable here. We usually bring our rv to Townsend but this was a quick trip for the July 4th weekend. We weren't disappointed. The owner... More

My husband and I spent 3 nights here. The room was clean and well maintained and the perfect size for the two of us. The king sized bed was quite comfortable, and the bathroom was clean. Loved the goodie basket we got as a welcome. I would definitely stay here again.

If you don't like crowds and noise, then Townsend is the place to stay, and this motel is a great choice for a clean, spacious, convenient place to sleep. Also, there is a great little coffee place across the highway (The Artistic Bean) open early.

The outside looked like a motel from many years ago but the inside was nicely done. I appreciate the floors were not carpet. The bed was nice and firm. And the large windows faced the mountains. The owners are professional and kind. The morning basket was a nice touch. All in all, charming but not over done.

My granddaughter and I stayed here since we were going to see the synchronous fireflies in Elkmont that night. It wasn't as close a drive as I thought, simply because of the mountain road, but it was a very clean, older style motel with updated rooms. The owner was friendly and helpful. Enjoyed the basket of snacks too.

This is such a cute place to stay while in Tennessee. It's just outside all the local attractions. It's a great place to stay if you don't want to pay for an over priced tourist trap hotel in Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge. This place is literally 30 minutes from those two previous areas listed. Give it a try you won't... More

Was extremely surprised when we arrived. Room was very nice and very clean. Was given a basket every day which included coffee and/or tea, Danish or muffins, snacks and York Peppermint patties! Very quiet for being a small motel. Will definitely go back.

We stayed here for our first trip with our dog. It was nice and clean. The only thing I didn't like was the parking and the other guests. Someone rudely parked behind us blocking us in and the guests down the way were outside being very loud and obnoxious. The motel was nice though. You get a nice little welcome... More
