I got a first floor room so I could park outside my door since I have lots of luggage - I travel for business and stay four nights at a time. Second floor rooms also have parking outside the door as the hotel is on a large hill. The driveway is steep and winding. All rooms have 2 rocking chairs...

Had a second floor room that was updated and very clean. View was excellent. Breakfast consists of waffles, bagels, juice, coffee, bananas and cereal and some pastries and muffins. Enjoyed our stay. Would definitely stay here again.

We were in the area for a wedding. Check in was easy and friendly. The room was on the third floor (WOW what a view) but from the back it's only one flight of stairs. It was very quiet (even though the hotel was full). The bed was well made. We found it a little soft but that sort of...

Scary-looking grounds, but the room was extremely clean, comfortable bed, pleasant staff. Yes,it's basic and dumpy, but a great value. Perfect if all you need is a place to sleep for a few hours. So what if there was no stopper for the bathtub? Gorgeous view from my third floor room.

We have stay here twice so far and it has been pleasant every time. Rooms are always clean and got a decent night sleep. Their breakfast area is very basic with just a few items to chose from. This was not a problem because Waffle house is just down the street. We were lucky enough to be here for a...

Great price. Great place with a view looking over the town and mountains. Rooms clean and simple. Plenty of places to eat close by and it's proximity to many attractions makes it a great location. Don't waste your money on where you stay. You can have it all staying here.

We stay at this motel almost every weekend in the summer months. You certainly cannot beat the value. It has new owners and they have made some great improvements. The rooms are very clean, I've never had any issues with the NUMEROUS stays here. It's cozy and comfortable...and the VIEWS from your balcony cannot be beat. Nothing like sitting out...

Drive to Waynesville, NC last night for our hotel stay before heading to the Middle Prong Wilderness. Having done a lot of backpacking, you get used to staying in some sketchy places. This hotel was one of the cleanest hotels I have EVER stayed in. Mind you, I have stayed in some 5 star hotels throughout the world. This is...
