Terrible staff, don't speak English, called me within 30min of booking on booking.com with treating, rude tone. Nothing works, no TV. Very nasty people. I would not recommend to anyone. I would sleep in the car first. Stay far away from this place.

Under new ownership. Ad said "no cable tv". I assumed there would still be ABC, NBC or some local channel. There was absolutely no tv. I had an adjoining room at the back. It looked like the dead bolt could be popped open with a butter knife. I thought I would put a chair under the knob. There was no...

We were very pleased with our room, the staff and the overall atmosphere here. The room was clean and there were no bad odors at all. The pool wasn't operational, but the Southern Charm and pleasant staff more than make up for anything you may feel lacking. We WILL be staying here again.

We stayed here once and thought it was nice. The room was kind of small but it was clean. We were going to stay here again but it is currently closed down with a huge fence around it. We were kind of disappointed because it was a good location. Downtown was a few minutes walk away which was nice. Maybe...

This was the first time my husband and I have stayed at a bed and breakfast and it won't be the last. We felt right and home with our hosts. Food was excellent and conversation was very comfortable. Price was right for our experience.

This is an older one-story motel off the main strip not too far from the entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park. I have no doubt this was a small private motel before it got acquired and corporatized by Econolodge. The room was small, although they’ve tried to equip it with all the accoutrements. You park right outside your room...

Nice, clean room. Could have done with a curtain hiding the ugly clothes hanging space but no other criticisms. Would have given it 4/5 but when we arrived, there was a note on the door saying to go to another hotel to check in. It was only around the corner, but still a bit frustrating, then they hadn't left us...

I read the other reviews before booking. It is clean and basic. I would stay here again though. There was an issue getting into the rooms. We couldn't open the doors. There's a trick to open the door, that the desk didn't tell us about. Annoying that there was a trick to get in the rooms, but once we got...
