This is a good place to stay if you are going to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The park entrance is a few miles away. The hotel offers a good breakfast in addition to a clean room and a comfortable bed.

Local music and craft festivals brought us here. We found a new restaurant to enjoy just across the highway from the motel -The Steak House. Absolutely superb quality food and staff. We will revisit this area more often because of this weekend.

I have a mobility disability... and this place does not have an elevator to the 2nd floor. I just wanted to point this out for anyone that it may concern, I do not count this against the Best Western folks. I use BW a lot and hold the highest level of rewards that they offer. Thus they upgraded me to... More

Bed is very firm (not horrible just not my favorite). WISH THERE WAS AN OUTDOOR BATHROOM FOR POOL AREA!! Pool was clean and we enjoyed it! :) The breakfast was fresh and tasted great. (except the fruit not too sure about it). I also LOVED that I could have coffee any time of the day! :)

While the rooms are getting dated and tired, there was a reason to stay here. They have rocking chairs outside of every room to enjoy the scenery.. They even had a fireplace and jacuzzi in our room which was value priced ar $78!! Breakfast is fine; nothing exciting, but freshly made waffles sure helped. My only negative is there are... More

My wife and I stayed here for one night due to having a couple of coupons for Best Western 's 'Stay twice, get $50.00' gift card promotion. Upon arriving, I found that the desk clerk on duty had no idea how to redeem the cards. She stated that I would have to see the manager about redeeming the cards. She... More

This is a very convenient spot for touring the Smokies. There was nothing fancy about the room, but pick first floor as it is more convenient for loading and unloading. Breakfast did not officially start until 7 am, but things were out before then, and they should really start serving earlier for folks who want to get into the Park... More

For the person who isn't spending all day in the hotel this is a great stop to get a warm bed and a nice break before heading out on the adventures. About the same price as a campsite in the area. Great location close to Cades Cove.
