Love, love, love. The bath has the original 64 year old tile!!! Hardwood floors great with our dog. Mike was great, friendly and helpful. He loved our dog too!! When we checked in we were given a doggy pail, dog essentials-just in case. Reasonable rates, clean rooms, we will definately stay again.

I would have given 3.5 stars of possible. Tally Ho Inn is above average. It isn't fancy but it is clean, quaint and conveniently located. The walking path allows you to go wherever you like in Townsend. We visited while the Carriage House Restaurant was closed but walked to the Riverview Restaurant for dinners. It was the off-season. This is...

This is my 2 or 3rd time at this Inn. My room was just a simple queen with no amenities. (no microwave, hot pot, or refrig). Which was fine. They do serve coffee in the front lobby but wish they would have had hot water too. The room was clean. I slept well. You can get other types of rooms...

Talley Ho Inn is the perfect setting for a Smoky Mountain getaway! It is a lovely hotel, comfortable and up to date! It is only a mile from Cade's Cove. Also a short drive from Smoky Mountain Parkway, which is a beautiful drive and views you can't believe! The restaurant next door was excellent. Don't bother going to any of...

The front desk staff was so friendly. Robin was very helpful with a last minute trip booking. Room was very clean. We stayed in 158 and those rooms seemed to be updated. We will definitely stay here again when we come back next year.

This was our second year to have a family reunion at the Talley Ho Inn and we have booked for a 3rd in 2017. Accommodations for a family reunion are the best. The cottage is a perfect gathering place for all and the kitchen is stocked adequately for group of 15-20. Firewood is provided for the fireplace. The weather was...

The rooms were clean and updated. The staff were friendly and helpful. Love Townsend, and the small town feel of the place. Great price and close to the mountains! Have stayed in the cottages and rooms, both are great!

very down-home personable staff. Clean room, good price. We were a group of 20 and there were no complaints. Very helpful in holding a block of rooms for us. Restaurant next door offers 10 percent discount. on meals.

I stayed at the Inn for 5 days and had a wonderful experience. The staff was very helpful and the rooms were really, really clean..the WiFi struggled a bit but the trade off is the proximity to the national park.

This Inn is one of the closest to Cades Cove. Since we did not have reservations in the area, we were thankful to get a room at the Talley Ho. The only room they had left was with a king-size bed, Jacuzzi, gas fireplace and a private balcony. Since we needed a place to sleep were tired from traveling we...
