Reviewed 23 August 2014

A great place to stay in Bryson City, NC. It was very clean and the staff was terrific. The beds were so comfortable, I wouldn't mind having one at home. It's location is in a spot that is perfect, Easy access to the highway and close to town. The breakfast was good too. Only one complaint - would like to have 2 chairs in the room.

Reviewed 21 August 2014

Very small room, bath towels thin, toilet paper was thin, tissues were thin, eggs were watery, orange juice was watered down, ants invaded the room, no cell phone reception, and Saturday night was $119.59.The up-side is that breakfast was kept well stocked, waffles and pan cake maker was good, with in walking distance to down town, the staff was very friendly and accommodating. The room was clean, the room had been remodeled with some awkwardly placed items.

You can't argue with a 100% cleanliness rating! We have stayed here 2 or 3 times before and have always been pleased. They are also biker friendly with towels on your bike in the morning. Good location, too quiet but convenient to town.

Loved:

- Staff at the front desk were professional, friendly, courteous and extremely helpful each time I spoke with them.

- They were well prepared for typical guest questions about the area with a simple, easy to follow map.

- The outdoor pool was very clean and obviously well maintained.

- The (2 queen beds) room (though on the small side) was beautifully appointed with modern linens, bright walls with an unexpected pop of color, black and white photographs and clean, sleek furniture.

- The desk space worked very well and the office type chair was extremely comfortable. I wanted to take it with me!

- There was a nice picnic table out back close to the pool which was nice.

- Breakfast (7:30 - 9:30) was amazing. Sausage, eggs, biscuits, gravy, waffles, pancakes, cereal, fruit, croissants, home fries, and more.

Room for improvement:

- The bathroom door was one of the pocket type that slides back into the wall when opened. There was no actual handle (more like a depression in the door) to slide the door back and forth. This could definitely be problematic, and was, for people like my mother who have arthritis. Our particular bathroom door didn't lock either.

Have stayed here several times while in town visiting family, and have never been disappointed. Staff has always been very friendly and accommodating. The only drawback to this hotel is there is not a pool.

Room Tip: The hotel is close enough to downtown to walk, so if you love to browse through little shops, there...

The motel was modern and looked really nice. It was very clean and they had the BEST Breakfast in town - lots to choose from! The room had a king size bed and microwave and refrigerator and was very spacious.

The first of the three nights that we stayed there we noticed water on the carpeted floor outside the bathroom. It leaked the whole time we were there and the third night we noticed a sewer smell. The handles on the facets also were falling off - very loose. This is why the three stars above.

The breakfast area was always packed with sausage, eggs, great potatoes, cereal, fruit, waffles, pancakes, coffee and juice. Lots of choices here!

The staff was very friendly and very helpful - giving directions and advise when we asked!
We would stay again but in a different room - not no. 105 as we did this time.

Room Tip: There was noise on the first floor from children above us.

We hop you and your family will sta with us again in the future.
