“"Most relaxing place to stay"”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 11, 2013

My husband and I have stayed at Talley Ho on several occasions and with family too! Of all my vacations this has to be the most relaxing place to visit of them all. The rooms are always so very clean and they have the most "at home" atmosphere. The owners see to it that visitors are happy and they make you feel so welcome. The landscape is beautiful and neatly manicured. The mountains in the background is awesome! We always like to stay on the second floor and the balconies are large with comfortable seating. I can't wait to go back again!!!

My family has stayed at Talley Ho for several years now, I have taken my elderly Dad there, have went with other couples, have went with my brother and sister and their spouses and children. I truly just love it here, it is so neat and clean and relaxing, and has this feel about it of what "family vacations used to be like" when I was younger. I promise you that the rooms are always so nice and clean, and it has always impressed me seeing them scrubbing the wooden rails and banisters leading up to the rooms, you never see one cob-web. The landscaping is so nice as well, and even the pavement and everything around it is spotless! Talley Ho is where you want to be if you want to see what true relaxation and fun and enjoyment and making memories is all about. I look forward to my next trip there, and hope it is soon.

Room Tip: Love the 2nd floor in Building C where you have mountain view, and it looks straight out at the pool...

A real delight to visit here and stay on Townsend side of Smoky Mts. This is older establishment that has had some rennovations and additions, the room we chose was the cheaper straight eight" room all we needed was a bed to sleep in and bathroom. as we did not spend much time in it. Very quaint and clean, hardwood floor and old tile in bathroom shower. it was clean and Great for us! The bed was high old fashioned style and linens were comfortable and clean. the greatest thing is the POOL. it is heated and very nice. we swam after dark and after a rainstorm. we had the whole pool to ourselves and it was just very nice! there is a grocery store close about 1mile or so down the road to get snacks, beer, etc. we ate pizza at Pizza hut next to grocery IGA store. Warning, all things are closed up by 10pm, so purchase what you want before that time. It really is very quiet and relaxing, you will enjoy that Cades Cove is so close by and an easy drive to it the following morning! Just a nice place to relax, swim and rest a bit. no shopping or hub bub here. Recommended that you call the talley Ho directly to make reservation rather than on-line, as they can provide you with same discounts and as owners, it is more profitable for them in this manner. You will not be disappointed if you like quiet, however if you want more selection and night life, this is not the place for you.

Loved this place, Gave use a choice of rooms and a look see before deciding. Love the Patio/ Balconey on room. Great view of Mountains. Well keep grounds and room was very clean and large we had.
Great place to eat on site.
Staff very friendly, offered me rags to wipe down my bike.
Will return for sure.

Quaint, comfortable rooms. Retains feel of original Smokies lodge it was, but has been completely renovated. Sparkling clean and MUCH more charming than a chain hotel! Lovely pool and view of mountains too.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 22, 2013

My husband and I spent two days in the Smoky Mountain National Park primarily in Cade's Cove. When we drove through Gatlinburg I was shocked at how crowded and commercial it had become since the last time I was there years ago. We wanted a nice quiet simple place to spend one night and found it in Townsend at the TaLley Ho Inn. The room was clean and comfortable. The bathroom was small with a small shower but was all we needed for that night and best of all it was away from the crowds.

Room Tip: W asked for the a east expensive room, there are larger rooms that may have larger baths if that'...
