    I stayed here for two nights while photographing the Smokies. Townsend is tiny and has few lodging options, but it's far from the crowded, cheesy madness of Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg, and 30 minutes from Cades Cove. The TGI is like the motels of yesteryear, but upgraded...More

    After staying in Gatlinburg this stop on our trip was a sigh of relief. I was traveling with my mom and two year old son on a little road trip through the Smokies. Staying here was like being home for a night--and I needed that....More

    This is a very nice older hotel. The room was exceptionally clean. Everyone was so nice and friendly. This hotel was pet friendly, which is very important to us. I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling with a pet.

    Our room was at west end of the property, just several rooms away from the pool. My wife and I didn't use the pool. So i'm unable to give a good answer! The rooms are very nicely kept and comfortable!
