“The basics with some bonuses”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 27, 2012

This is no frills for sure, but it is family owned and operated and has some unique, charming attributes. The rooms are cozy. This is an old, cement block structure, maybe 15 or so units, some cabins in the back. The edges may be frayed, but the beds are comfortable. There's hot water in the shower. There's a nice little heated pool, and breakfast in the morning. The office has a decent selection of cold beer and wine. I would have paid a little more for WiFi internet, because my phone (Sprint) had no service. We would absolutely come back (and plan to in the fall).

Just off the Blue Ridge Parkway made this a convenient stop for a one night's lodging. It's location however was not convenient for meals in November as close restaurants were closed for the season. The room was clean, comfortable, and warm on a 30 degree night with little need for runnning the heat less than an hour after we arrived. Friendly host and the breakfast was a delicious quiche, juice, cereal, coffeecake, and fruit. A well run family operation at a very reasonalbe rate.

Room Tip: If you're looking for a high end stay, this won't satisfy you.

This past weekend was our third stay. The location is great-just off the Blue Ridge Parkway near Linville Falls and other beautiful places. If you want fancy, go somewhere else. This place is less expensive than other motels in the area. It's a Mom&Pop, no-frills kind of place but it's clean and comfortable. The owners are friendly and very hospitable. We will be back again when we need a getaway and don't want to spend a lot.

Located just off the Blue Ridge Pkwy this location was ok for us to conduct our business in nearby Spruce Pine. It was worth the travel time because we rented a suite which had a deck in the back of the full kitchen and internet is available. The owners, David and Cindy were kind enough to allow my husband to use their personal grill each evening which was a real bonus and as Sprint has virtually no service in the mountains they offered their phone for us to utilize as well. This couple will make everyone feel at home - their warmth is genuine.

Although the property is quaint 1950's style Motel, the property in and of itself is a bit delapidated and the "Housekeeping Staff" leave much to be desired. The bed was extremely comfortable and we slept well every night. We would definitely stay there again.

Room Tip: If you smoke the Suite is great. You can smoke on the deck outside and they will furnish you an ash...

My wife & I were traveling the Blue Ridge Parkway, and stayed at the Parkview because of the location.
First the good points...David seems like a nice owner, trying to make a living. A pool between the office & motel that looked clean, but we didn't go in. Very easy on/off the Bluerudge Parkway. Also has a minimal continential breakfast, not even orange juice.
Now the bad...Upon check-in we were given a different room. The lady at the register said that she is giving us a BETTER room. When we went down to our room it smell damp. Went into the bathroom, there were yellow stains all around the tub & mold all around the walls! We definitly had second thoughts. The worst case of mold I ever saw. (On the plus side the bed seemed clean.) Oh well... we were only there for 1 night. Later 2 guys checked in to the room next to us. You could hear through the walls. We were the only 2 rooms booked. Yet they changed ours to put us side by side! And you could hear the trucks passing by on the road. Stay...but only if no other option!

We stayed here on Friday of the 4th of July weekend. Maggie May, the resident golden retriever, greeted us. Our accommodations were very clean, well-kept, & comfortable. The furnishings look like the way I remember my grandmother's house 45 years ago. Quaint and "homey", but not shabby. Our bed was comfortable and the room was very quiet. The best part was enjoying a delicious breakfast on the outdoor patio surrounded by songbirds, blooming rhododendron, green ferns, and many summer flowers. This place is pet-friendly so we also had our dog with us on the outdoor patio, which I really appreciated. The host/managers were warm, friendly, & helpful. Overall, it was an extremely enjoyable, reasonably-priced stay before we resumed our drive on the Blue Ridge Parkway in beautiful North Carolina. Yes, we would definitely stay here again!

My husband Kent and I, along with our 5 yr. old son Alex stayed in cabin # 19 and had a great time. We enjoyed the back porch of this cabin and cooking out on the grill. They had a nice swing set there too. My 5 yr. old enjoyed that as well as the pool. The cozy cabin is decorated with furniture made by the owner and is awesome to say the least. He is a talented gentleman.

The breakfast there is homemade by the owners and it is also great. They serve Kiesh and french toast along with other pastries - including banana nut bread are all very good. They had fresh watermelon as well.

You will find some of the finest wines there in the office and a great selection of beer. This is a very cozy place to stay and they keep the place clean.

We will plan to go back and visit soon.
