HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 9 February 2017

We stay at this motel almost every weekend in the summer months. You certainly cannot beat the value. It has new owners and they have made some great improvements. The rooms are very clean, I've never had any issues with the NUMEROUS stays here. It's cozy and comfortable...and the VIEWS from your balcony cannot be beat. Nothing like sitting out...

We have stay here twice so far and it has been pleasant every time. Rooms are always clean and got a decent night sleep. Their breakfast area is very basic with just a few items to chose from. This was not a problem because Waffle house is just down the street. We were lucky enough to be here for a...

Great price. Great place with a view looking over the town and mountains. Rooms clean and simple. Plenty of places to eat close by and it's proximity to many attractions makes it a great location. Don't waste your money on where you stay. You can have it all staying here.

Drive to Waynesville, NC last night for our hotel stay before heading to the Middle Prong Wilderness. Having done a lot of backpacking, you get used to staying in some sketchy places. This hotel was one of the cleanest hotels I have EVER stayed in. Mind you, I have stayed in some 5 star hotels throughout the world. This is...

Nothing I can say bad about staying there. Like I said. No over prices bells and whistles. Clean room and comfortable clean beds. A little out dated but it was fine for two nights. Would go back there if in area.

We were on a family vacation and needed somewhere to stay that was convenient and affordable. This motel was both, as well as it was clean, had a new, comfortable bed, had free wifi and a very friendly office staff.

This hotel was a massive surprise. It was excellent value for money, the rooms were spacious (plenty of room to move around in a room with two queen beds), and really clean. I loved the view of the mountains and the sunrise was spectacular. I shall definitely return again

Place was horrible. Mold, dirt and filth. Bathroom floor was sticky. Had to wear shoes to use restroom. Really gross. My son and I got a room for the night on a weekend fishing trip. If we had spent more than the six hours we did I would have lodged formal complaints with the management, but we were trying to...

I was so happy to find this hotel in October. Large, clean room with wonderful views of the mountains. All rooms have rocking chairs. The 2nd and 3rd floor rooms have actual balconies. The 1st and 2nd floor rooms are both accessible from the ground level- because the hotel is on a hillside, the 2nd floor room access is on...
