Very friendly and the room are nice and big. Location is in the smokey mountain. Need a 4x4 if you are going anywhere on the back roads. Twenty miles from Dolly world. Next door the restaurant will give you 10% off you meal if you show your room key.

Great hotel. Quiet and clean. I was looking for a hotel in Townsend and stumbled across the Talley Ho Inn. When I stopped in and spoke with the front desk clerk, she offered to let me inspect the room before I booked it. Needless to say, that is all it took. I normally stay in Pigeon Forge, but I'm really...

Plus side: comfortable bed. They promised WIFI but it's only at the lobby, not the rooms. No wake up calls. No emergency after hour service. (My business partner's toilet broke.) The wall plugs lacked appropriate covers and locations. Sometimes the room got cleaned or not... Coffee not replenished. You have to move the coffee tray to another location to find...

This may not be the place for some people who are "chained" to their Internet or those who expect a complimentary breakfast because the Talley Ho Inn does not offer these things but if you are looking for a clean, quiet and friendly place to stay this is the place! We had stayed at a hotel chain the night before...

We stay at the Talley Ho Inn every time we visit the Gatlinburg area. We like staying in Townsend, because its very pretty and quiet! Also, being that we are a family of five, with three growing boys, it's affordable option for us. We like to save our money up for the attractions and dining. The rooms are very clean....

I stayed there the last week of October for the first time. I was originally booked for 3 nights but was able to stay a 4th night. The room was large and spotless, the queen size bed extremely comfortable (particularly important for someone with back problems), extremely quiet and the view from the balcony was lovely. The gentleman at the...

Came to Townsend, to see and photograph the Smoky Mountains. The Inn was recommended by our guide. On the outside, the Inn looked inviting, but once inside the rooms it was not. Very outdated. There was no internet use in the rooms, had to go to the lobby to get it. The mattress was worn out, and was leaning to...

I was just there again for the 2nd time in 4 years and again, despite my questioning at the time of making my reservations the internet did not work on any of my 3 devices for 4 days. Others had problems too and I had this very same experience 4 years ago. Fool me twice and I won't stay there...
