Clean room, comfortable beds, helpful front desk staff (Carolyn gave great hike advice). Downtown location is close to multiple restaurants and a short drive to the Smoky Nat'l Park entrance. Would stay here again.

I like this Inn and this is my second stay there. I like the location. It is very convenient to the park. IT is very convenient to the main road. The refridgerator is a little small - and due to Covid 19 it was a little more needed on this trip.

There were four adults in our room and we were very comfortable. We were afraid that parking would be an issue but we didn’t have any problem finding a place to park. It was a good location. If I had one suggestion, it would be to change the hours for the pool. 8pm seems too early to close. We never got a chance to swim and would have if it had been open til 10 or 11.

"Great little property."
TripAdvisor user rating 4 out of 5

Great location. Older property but look newly updated. Beds/pillows are comfy but one was squeeky. AC did not work first night so we slept with open doors due to heat, maintenance came early the next am and fixed it and worked the next 2 days. There was a constant cloud of mary jane coming from several balconies, no view of river but close to the river if you wanted to walk and see it. Room was cut and I saw no bugs at all just spider webs on balcony and weird connecting door to next door which was easily opened.. I would stay here again, all staff were very friendly and helpful. Grab and go breakfast available, ice is on 3rd floor. My husband loved the stress relief shampoo/lotion they provided. There is a sink outside the restroom which came in handy when getting ready in the morning etc. Did not have any issues with loudness at night. Overall very pleased.
