We traveled up I-75 to attend a wedding in Ohio and once again stayed at the wonderful Hampton Inn in Caryville. This place simply can't be beat if you want a charming place to stay that has both character and history.

About the only thing that can be said in the negative is that this place is so popular for overnight travelers that some rooms could be considered a little tired. But they are kept clean and the atmosphere more than makes up for the fact that it's not a 5-star getaway. It starts when you pull off the highway and turn up their drive. Keep an eye out for the llamas walking around the steep hills around the hotel. (Or are they alpacas?) There are antique cars out in front of the lobby, as well as some interesting metal statues. Inside this family-owned and operated hotel, you'll find a friendly staff ready to help you. They just couldn't be more accomodating! Pay attention on your way to your room, because the walls are lined with family photos and memorabilia that are fascinating. You can even see the jacket that their ancestor was wearing when he was shot by revenuers!

Our room was perfectly fine and comfortable, and my entire family had a nice sleep.

In the morning, if you don't get up for the complimentary breakfast in the lobby, you're missing out on one of the best parts of the stay! They have a wonderful assortment of food both warm and cold, fruit, pastries, juices, etc. But best of all is that the guests are tended to by the patriarch of the family, who simply enjoys mingling and talking with the guests. You'll learn a lot about the family and the hotel, and you'll find yourself telling him all about where you're from and what brought you to their hotel.

As I said, this place is charming and full of character. My family enjoyed all there was to see here, and I felt very safe and secure stopping here. Probably safer than nearly anywhere I've ever stayed. If you're traveling late in the evening, call ahead to make sure you get a room because this place can fill up quick once evening falls. But better still, just make it a point to stop here and make a reservation in advance.

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.

We stumbled upon this place late at night. We loved the view and were quite surprised by the quality of our room. The morning breakfast was great as well. Would definitely stay here again if in the area.

There was a little confusion upon check in concerning the room requested but that was rectified. The room was very comfortable and very clean and had a beautiful view of the mountains as well as a balcony. There was a pool and although the weather was hot the pool was not open (because it doesn't open until Memorial Day) That was very disappointing. Breakfast area was clean and well stocked. They actually have good coffee.
Liked: the view
Disliked: pool not available, windows did not open and the air conditioner was noisy.

I highly recommend this hotel. We often travel from Ohio to Florida and ALWAYS make sure that our overnight stop is the Hampton Inn Caryville, TN. Over the last couple of years, we have stayed at this hotel several times. We've always enjoyed the Llamas, the "ski lift" swings, the view of the lake and the nice clean rooms with "cloud nine" beds, but what we're impressed time and again is the friendly staff! On our most recent stay we asked the staff about a good place for dinner. They couldn't say enough about Rickard Ridge BBQ which is located in Cove Lake State Park, just down the road. WOW! We've never tasted BBQ in such a way that we couldn't stop eating it. The portions were great along with the prices and selection. They even had some relaxing entertainment.

You can't go wrong when staying at the Hampton Inn in Caryville, TN. Can't wait to go back.
