“Enjoyed our stay.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2013

Our room was very clean and the housekeeper cleaned our room every day and we always had clean towels. The management was very friendly and helpful. We enjoyed sitting outside our room in the rocking chairs. We didn't have the opportunity to use the pool, as it rained the whole time we were there. But if you are just looking for a small, quiet place to spend your vacation this is the place. It was perfect for us. The only thing it was lacking was coffee pots in the room. We will recommend this motel to our friends and we will stay there again.

Extremely Clean- not fancy but good location. Rates are fantastic- great if you are a biker! It rained so we didn't get to hang out by the fire pit. Nice folks non-intrusive. If you want fancy and hoity toity this is not your place but if you just want clean comfortable then this is the perfect place. Nice pool.

June 12-14, 2013, our first time in Maggie Valley: We have to agree with all the favorable comments. Tammy even took the time to look for our lost keys (in the room or grass by the pool.) after we had left. Thanks for supplying clean rags to dry off our trikes. The chairs & rockers in front of each unit gave us all opportunity to draw the other guests into conversations. Sorry we didn't take the opportunity to use the pool or gather around the campfire.
Just one suggestion: The Room 8 window, facing the rising sun, could use thicker drapes. We highly recommend Clarketon Motel for the price, location, and the hospitality!...Can-Am Spyder Owner, Sunman IN

I highly recommend The Clarketon Motel for anyone wishing to stay in Maggie Valley, NC!! This was a VERY clean motel, the staff was very friendly and full of information concerning local attractions and restaurants. We stayed in Room 6, it had a queen size bed, private bathroom, microwave and mini refrigerator. Only $39 per night!! The decor is a bit outdated but we were only there to sleep. It is very close to many restaurants in Maggie Valley and to historic Waynesville. The pool area was clean. The pool is 4ft at the shallow end (if I remember correctly) and 7ft at the deep end. We would definitely stay at The Clarketon Motel again!

This was a great first time at this personal and friendly hotel. The room was large and had new windows for a back and front view and the first hotel I stayed in where you could open the windows. The price is very good and located near the events and a short walk across road to eat.We road motorcycle and it is great to be welcomed at a hotel for bikers. Bonfire and even offered to drive us to events . Love retro hotels.We will be back for other Rallys in the mountain..Thanks guys!

Our group really enjoyed our stay here.
It's like more visiting friends than staying at a hotel. Phillip has a bonfire at night. He will take on a guided ride of the area. He gave us some great rides to try. Offered use of the Suburban if we needed it. I honestly don't know how he remembers all those jokes.We will definitely be stopping back by here again.

Love this little motel. It is dated, however, you can't beat the price for what you get. And most importantly, it's clean! My friends and I stayed here for the weekend and throughly enjoyed it. The 2 room efficiency with fireplace was the perfect setup for us. The staff are very friendly.
