We stayed in the older section and it was clean and comfortable. Our bed(s) were comfortable. The window type air conditioner provided white noise so we did not hear any traffic outside. The toilet was cramped (I am 6'3"). We really enjoyed the rocking chairs outside our room. Great location and next to the restaurant. Thank goodness for the wifi...

This is a wonderful little place to stay...Just outside The Great Smoky Mountains, yet so much more peaceful than Gatlinburg (if you want quiet). Although it's older, it's so very quaint! The owner's are very polite & helpful and the rooms are very cozy. There is the Riverstone Family Restaurant within walking distance & the food is delicious! We loved...

River stone also rents homes by the river. We have stayed at Jack's Shack and this time at Annie's abode. Both are clean and comfortable. And most importantly, right on the river. Great prices as well.

If the benches and yard furniture...

This is our home while in the mountains! Terry and Belinda are like family. The heat is one, the TV is on and a light when we arrive! Terry has a fire in the fire ring everyday! I love the beds and the rooms are clean. It is an older, remodeled motel and rustic with character, I Love It!

Stayed here a few times best place in Townsend to stay! Staff was nice, rooms were squeaky clean, the prices can not be beat! Located near the river! I would recommend this hotel to anyone! It's also close to pigeon forge and Gatlinburg! Easily the best place to stay in Townsend!

The room was clean and tidy. I stayed in room 10. I could hear traffic on the highway and in the driveway behind the motel. It did wake me a few times. I just love staying at this place. It's like coming home every time I come back.

I am very pleased with our stay here. The rooms are simple but we only stayed one night so was perfect. nice thick pillows, beds are very comfortable, rooms were clean. Direct Tv so husband got to watch the SEC football games after a long day in Cades Cove. We will be staying here again!
