Glad you enjoyed your stay! We remember you did a lot of fishing but never knew whether you caught much. Whether you did or not, we hope you come back and try some more!

Very nice small hotel directly on the river which offers an excellent location for fishing or for just kicking back and relaxing. Close to bait shop, grocery, and restaurants. Rooms and grounds are clean and beds were comfortable. Wifi, coffee maker, refrigerator, and microwave in room was an added bonus. Plenty of outdoor seating to watch the river and grills...

Thank you for posting such a nice review! As owners, we are always available to our guests and we do have lots of suggestions for activities and restaurants. I'm glad you will be returning, come back soon!

Not the newest hotel but the rooms are spotless and have fridges/microwaves/coffee makers. Linens, blankets, bedspreads all seemed very clean as well-I am very picky when it comes to this! My highest priorities for any hotel are a clean/quiet room and this one certainly delivered at an excellent price. I think all rooms have a beautiful view of the river....

Thank you for the excellent and detailed review! A lot of other guests will find your review very helpful. We are very picky ourselves about cleanliness so I'm glad it is appreciated. Peak leaf color is typically mid-October to early November here, so please come see us then!

My family stayed 3 nights and had a wonderful time. The owners were extremely friendly and treated us like family and had great recommendations for local restaurants and attractions. We all had an awesome time whitewater rafting. The room was so clean I hated to return to my own home! The location on the river was very peaceful and relaxing...

My new wife and I had just spent a week up in a mountain cabin and planned to spend the next week somewhere closer to town. We didn't really anticipate anywhere in the small town of Bryson City that would be as nice or as private as our little cabin. Thankfully, we were wrong! He stopped by 6 other hotel/lodging...

Thank you for the excellent review! I'm glad you weren't too bothered by us bringing the plumbers in. We really hated to disturb you, especially on your honeymoon, but we were afraid the problem would get worse. Definitely come back and see us again soon!

Very clean, friendly staff/owners, and beautiful setting on the river. Also very close to town. My wife and I stayed here on own anniversary and really enjoyed our stay.

We are so happy that you enjoyed your anniversary here! I'm sorry about the smoking situation. We have moved the ashtrays to tables farther away from the guest room doors to try to prevent smoke from getting into rooms but it's impossible to fully control. We hope to see you again soon!

This place was lovely. There are not a lot of rooms compared to large chain hotels, so the property is quiet and homey feeling. We could see the river out our windows, and there was a sitting area outside to enjoy it. The room was nicer than I'd expected, with a large mini-fridge, coffee maker and coffee, microwave, TV, nice...

The motel was as an older motel that had been renovated. The management at this motel was awesome. The lodging was super clean right on the water with a grill and deck. There was a park located on one side of the location , Shopping and dinning areas were located nearby. it was a fun weekend.
