“Very clean but a bit overpriced”
Reviewed September 12, 2011

During the check-in procedure, the owners were a bit over-zealous to make sure I was a non-smoker, which I am. I found the room to be very clean. The room was comfortable and the furnishings and linens were all in good shape. The price was a bit high (my opinion) and would have been off-set a bit if they would have offered at small continental breakfast.

While not fancy or modern, this motel was pretty clean. You can tell owners like to keep that reputation and appear to put effort into the rooms. Ours had nice newer linens on the bed (which was comfortable), carpet seemed clean, roomed smelled fresh. The room was also very spacious. The grounds are pretty - lush grass, lots of big shade trees, rocking chairs and creekside rooms in the back. Parking was free and right at your room with big wide spaces. The WIFI worked well everytime we used it. The cable was surprisingly good and had lots of channels including HBO.

But this motel is just a little off in many ways. I understand it's only a motel and not a Hilton but for almost $90 a night no alarm clock, no hand towels, no hair dryer, no shampoo, no breakfast made it a bit odd and overpriced. They have policies about turning off appliances when you leave and which washcloths to use...just a little weird. Plus it was so loud. There are motorcycles everywhere including the motel right next door. At one of these places you pull right to your door the noise was nervewracking at times. The straw was the owner needs some country manners of his own. He was a little off putting, like when my husband asked if they had vacancy for his parents to come visit his answer was a curt "only if they don't smoke". You know a yes or no really would have been sufficient. We signed the no smoking policy, saw the no smoking signs everywhere, were told half a dozen times they don't allow smokers, we get it - no smoking. Saving grace here was his wife who was very pleasant and accomodating for us. But there are just too many other places in MV to try so I don't see us coming back here.

Room Tip: Get a room on the creek for peace & quiet

Our group of Goldwing riders love this non-smoking hotel. The managers bend over backwards to make sure your stay is comfortable. The rocking chairs on the covered porch come in handy on rainy days. Beautiful area.

I have been to Maggie Valley 2 times now and this is the place I will stay from this point forward. I have never seen such a clean Hotel. It appears old from the outside but behind the motel is where they have other buildings that is along Johnathon Creek. I was really impressed with this hotel and would recommend it to everyone. It is located near a gas station and a shop you can walk to. The couple who own the hotel are very nice people as well.
