I travel a lot and don't usually write reviews, but Townsend Gateway Inn is exceptional in every way. Its on the peaceful side of the Smokies so if you are looking to avoid the congestion of Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge then this is the place! From the friendly owners to the gift basket for all guests to the extremely comfortable...

I always wanted to buy an old hotel and fix it up. If it was nice and clean I knew there would be repeat customers. That is what they have done. It is very clean. Nice friendly staff. Will definitely sts y there again.

Many years ago my family stayed at the Wear's Motel in Townsend. What a refreshing discovery to find it renovated, reopened, and a great 'new' place to stay. The staff are friendly and very welcoming to their visitors. The rooms are spotless. Even though there is no breakfast room, a basket of delicious treats are delivered to the room each...

Very clean, large room with everything you need. Drive right up to the door, but there is one step up. Has a mini frig (which didn't get cold enough, but it was OK), a microwave, hair dryer, soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner, makeup remover pads, and a goodie basket. Free wi-fi. The bed was very comfortable. I will stay there again.

It's very quaint with the hanging baskets and rocking chairs in front of all the rooms. It had nice views of the smokies and there is a small man made waterfall across...

We stayed for two nights, and we had a great time. The room was very clean, and the service was friendly. Upon arrival, a snack basket was made for us, and she even made to sure you to ask about some of our snack preferences. The grounds are also very nice. There's an area to sit by a fire and...

This place was very nice, clean and comfortable. A very quiet and relaxed atmosphere with extra charming touches. The owners went out of their way to ensure our stay was great. A great place to stay and we will definitely stay there again.

The place looks to have been recently renovated. The owner greeted us and even gave us a gift basket. The outside is very nice and there are two rocking chairs for each room. The room itself looks great and the beds were comfortable. The decor was different, but we liked it. No production quality paintings. Several features that we liked...
