We came upon the Caryville Hampton Inn by luck - looking for a place to spend the night on a longer road trip. The hotel now ranks at the top of list of our "stopover" hotels - and we take a lot of roadtrips. The good: Incredibly friendly service, clean rooms, free breakfast buffet, great quirky, historic memorabilia of the Ayers family (who still own the hotel today). The current owner attended the breakfast buffet in the morning and chatted with guests, offering recommendations on sites to see, history on the hotel, etc. The hotel is up on a hillside and has neat touches such as "swings" out back which overlook a nice mountain view (and the swings are actually old ski chairlifts). The hill the hotel sits on is "mowed" by llamas who live on the hillside (but apparently also can make their way to a small stable above the hotel, whenever they want). The llamas were the highlight of our morning. The bad: I am struggling to come up with bad for this hotel. I guess the only con is that it's not the newest - if you are looking for brand spanking shiny new accommodations this may not be the place. But again, it's extremely clean and one of the things we remember most from our 2009 road trip.
