Old, dated hotel but I like that, reminds me of going to the Smokies when I was a kid. Rooms are always very clean, bathroom is spotless. Two swimming pools that are old but kept clean. Not a place for partiers, but if you are looking for peace and quiet, reasonable rates this is it.

The owners are very nice and have always accommodated our late check in by leaving the key outside for us. The hotel is dated so if you are looking for something fancy with a plush bed go... More

I highly recommend Headrick's River Breeze. It is a reasonably priced, clean facility with all the essentials and a beautiful view of nearby Smoky Mtns. I have stayed in several Townsend locations, as I am a pro videographer/photographer with assignments there. Dan and Brenda have a good family-owned facility that they obviously take great personal pride in. Rooms are clean... More

It is only 9 miles to Cades Cove and a short drive to Gatlinburg or Pigeon Forge Tn. If you want quiet and peaceful this is the place. Room rates are great and... More

We stayed at Headricks for one night and were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. If you are looking for a simple and inexpensive room you could do far worse than this pleasant place. The staff were very friendly and helpful.

Needed a room for one night so after reading what people had said about Headrick's on a FB page I belong to, I called. The man I talked to was very nice and said he had a room on the upper part of the motel. It is up the hill from the original motel and is newer. They have 2... More
