“Smoky Mountain Vacation”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 14, 2012

We enjoyed our stay at the Best Western Smoky Mountain Inn. For the best view, get a room on the second floor facing the front. You can sit on the balcony and look at the mountains. The grounds are well kept and it's a beautiful place to sit and relax. The breakfast is ok and the eating area is small. We visited the town of Waynesville, NC and enjoyed lunch at Nico's Cafe. It's located at 171 Montgomery St. (one block from Main Street). Lunch was very good. Whenever we go to Waynesville, this is where we stay. Thanks Jay, for an enjoyable time.

It is hard to find fault with this hotel. The staff was very friendly and the rooms are kept clean. Our view of the mountains was spectacular. An extra hot item on the breakfast bar would be good. We were there for 5 days and I would stay again.

We stayed at this hotel July 29th. The large room was very clean,light, quiet and very adequate. Continental breakfast was fine, but breakfast area a little small. Beautiful flowerbeds surround the hotel. We will certainly stay there again.

Room Tip: We had requested quiet area, but the whole area is quiet.

The pros: microwave and fridge, WiFi that worked. Outdoor pool good for cooling off on the hot days. Room was comfortable, climate control worked; nice tub/shower. Breakfast was slightly above average since, in addition to the typical fare, waffles were available along with fresh fruit. Not much room to sit down but they were okay with us taking food back to the room. Outside was very nicely landscaped.

The only "con" was really that, for a fairly unremarkable place, we felt the price was inflated. Check in was tedious but not the clerk's fault. She was alone at a typically high-traffic time so she was trying to deal with several people in line and a ringing phone, too. She did the best she could!

Since we had been hiking all day we actually used the cute boot brush installed at the edge of the upper parking lot. :)

After visiting the Smoky Mountain, we were looking for accommodation at the southern entrance of the park... There was little availability in the mid-range with the bulk of the offers being at the top or bottom end.

The Best Western at Waynesville is clean and the rooms are good. They even have a pool and nice views of the mountains. There is also plenty of parking right in front of your room.

Only downside was the price - at $130 a night we would have expected more. Certainly the operator should replace their towels and upgrade some of their in-room amenities and equipment. It all seemed a little aged.

Our score - a 4 out of 5 due to price and tiredness of the joint.

We stayed here on a motorcycle trip, The rooms are clean, the beads are comfy, the pool was clean also. The view from the parking lot is great, and breakfast is included. The breakfast area is very small, so you end up taking it back to your room, but no big deal there.
