Getting the claim to the best hotel in Townsend is not a hard thing to do. Not a lot of options on the quiet side of the Smoky's. This is a decent place, with a good breakfast, great prices, and a good location. Cons: beds are hard, outside hallways, lots of water pressure in the shower, and thin towels. I...

We got in very late but we were greeted with a friendly check-in. Our room was very clean and spacious. The breakfast was great. The location was perfect for our plans. It was off the beaten path so we could relax. The price was very reasonable as well.

The room was very large, clean, quiet and recently remodeled. Bed and pillows were comfortable. Great assortment for a hot breakfast. The staff was cordial. The Steak and Trout restaurant across the street is wonderful. We will stay here again.

This hotel is convenient to Cade's Cove and is inexpensive, but nothing fancy. It met our needs. Our room was spacious and we had everything we needed, but it was nothing special. We did have a fridge and and a microwave, but a desk would have been nice. Service was ok but not really pleasant. Towels were like cardboard. Soap...

My husband and I were having difficulty finding accommodations for us and our dog on a last minute trip to Townsend. The lady at Townsend Gateway Inn told us to try the Best Western since they didn't have any rooms....pet rooms. We were able to get a pet friendly room, last minute, with a good AAA discount. Although I do...

I was pleasantly surprised with this hotel. I do not normally like accommodations where you walk up to your room door from the outside, rather than interior corridors, but this area seemed safe and the room was clean and comfortable.

We enjoyed our stay. The beds are very comfortable! Breakfast is usually pretty good, however one morning the biscuits were not fresh. The coffee is always good! The room was clean but we needed more tissue. We love Townsend!

This is an average Best Western with older rooms. (Perhaps our room had not been remodeled.) It's nice to see a little variety in breakfast offerings. We enjoyed the stay before going into the Smoky Mountains.
