The hotel was quiet even though it was full on St. Patrick's Day weekend. The staff was friendly & helpful. The breakfast was delicious (especially the waffles) and the jacuzzi was great. There are plenty of places to eat within easy walking distance, and the general store across the street has very tasty sandwiches, salads and desserts.

Snowy cold windy Girls weekend. The Kingsport Inn is comfortable and clean. Warm was the key! The breakfast was basic - oatmeal, english muffins, coffee. Nothing too special. The hot water tastes like coffee so that ruined my cup of tea. Great Irish pub across the street - Ryan's. Fantastic Mexican restaurant also close by - Pedro's.

The Hotel was clean and updated and was a good place to stay during the winter because you do not have to walk far to any restaurants. Overall...

We like this place. A lot. From the chocolate chip cookies and Andes mints in the lobby to the multitude of quaint shops and restaurants within walking distance...the place is great. We stayed on the 3rd floor (no elevator, good leg workout) and we thought we were the only ones on the floor, even though there was no vacancy! Clean,...

The manager told me it was $89.00 as the website said. I was happy and reserved for that Saturday. She said she would send me a confirmation...
