After reading several travel sites reviews on this place, I couldn't believe the high marks. And after spending three nights here with my family, here's the TRUTH-1) No frills. 2) Older place. 3) WE LOVED IT!!!. Friendly staff and rooms that are very, very clean. Brought back wonderful memories to actually open a room door with a real key! We will tell everyone we know-you want a good place at a good rate-the Maples!

thanks, bigbear! we don't have a big advertising budget, partly because we're cheap, but mainly because we know the best kind of advertising is word-of-mouth. we thank the Lord daily for this business that my parents Leroy and Sue started, nurtured, and built into a success. and we thank you for your kind words (and hopefully continued patronage).

My wife and I stayed here for a christian conference and were surprisingly impressed. It is an older motor inn but it is very clean and I've never dealt with a more friendly staff. The meeting facilities were very nice as well. Thanks Jack and staff for a great stay.

Our family stayed 2 nights here while traveling through on our way to Florida. We booked the suite since there were 5 of us. The futon bed was comfortable and roomy enough for 2. Hotel was clean, friendly and conveniently located in Pigeon Forge. The price could not be beat either!
Would highly recommend.

sue, we like to encourage folks of all ages to try the second floor rooms. sure, it's convenient to be able to park 5 feet from your door, but the upper floor rooms have superior views and are quieter. the ramps do make walking up and carrying bags easier-- our housekeepers even push their heavy cleaning carts up and down the ramps every day.

we always collect payment in advance. but we cheerfully refund guests who have to leave a day or more early as long as they check out by check-out time (11:00 am). late checkouts can be arranged (by noon for no charge, 1 pm for a $20.00 fee.)

thanks for your kind words and we look forward to seeing you again!

Found this property with great reviews on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. We were pleasantly surprised. The property is well maintained, quiet, clean, and nicely landscaped. Big surprise when I called for a room I asked for a ground floor since I am handicapped and use a scooter since there was no elevator and when we arrived discovered there are no stairs to the 2nd floor but rather ramps! Both floors are easily accessible. We had booked 2 nights but discovered family was in town and they invited us to the cabin they own in the area so we did not stay the 2nd night. When my husband checked out the front desk clerk said if we had let them know before the maids had cleaned the room they would have refunded us the 2nd night! We were not expecting a refund but it was nice to know should this happen again. We will definitely be back to the area and will definitely stay here again. Great value.

Room Tip: Great place for handicapped travelers since both floors are accessible.

This hotel is clean, well run, and affordable. It is older, but the rooms are updated. We had a nice TV, mini-fridge, microwave, coffee pot.... The beds are great! It smelled fresh and clean. The sheets were crisp and clean. The bathroom is small, but big enough. The shower had great water pressure. The rooms are quiet. The only thing was that I am a pillow-holic. I love a bunch of them while I sleep, and we only had 2 per bed. This will be our go-to place for overnight stays from now on.

We just stayed at the Maples Motor Inn for the 1st time and we were very pleased with the accomodation and staff. We had a problem the first night with the air conditioner and we reported it the next morning as we were leaving for the day - that night when we returned it was fixed and we did not have any other problems. Wonderful maid service every day. An older motel but still very nice and clean. Very satisfied all around. Would recommend and stay here again.

This is a great little hotel. The staff was very courteous and the room was very clean. It's not as 'fancy' as newer places in town, and it's age does show, but I would happily reccomend this place to any of my friends or family.

Room Tip: It's probably quieter on the second floor as you can sometimes hear people moving around above y...
