“Nice hotel for a short stay”
Reviewed 4 December 2013

Very nice view from the second floor front side of the hotel. Desk staff was efficient and provided us with a good recommendation for dinner.
Room was clean and large. Beds were comfortable. Rooms open to outside. Parking lot very well lit at night.
Breakfast was continental. Adequate. Not much selection but ok.
Wifi. Large TV. Plenty of lamps. Heat worked great.
Will definitely stay here again.

Room Tip: Second floor front of the hotel has a great view of the mountains.

We just had a quick overnight stay while traveling through the area, but was very satisfied with the service and quality of the hotel. Lobby and rooms were very clean, well maintained. Folks at the front desk were very welcoming and friendly. Beautiful view.

We had a girls get away weekend in Waynesville recently and were very pleased with this lovely motel. We arrived late on a very rainy, foggy, chilly blustery night but there were four very cushy comfortable beds awaiting us. The linens were clean and soft and the rooms were very clean with plenty of clean fluffy towels; were we at a Hampton Inn? We were on the back side of the motel so the view wasn't available when we awakened the next morning but it was abundantly available from the free breakfast room in the lobby the next morning. Speaking of the breakfast, it was excellent; coffee was great and plentiful, there were freshly boiled eggs, waffle batter to make a steamy hot waffle, bagels, doughnuts, muffins, English muffins, raisin bread, wheat bread, etc. Oatmeal and grits as well as steaming hot water were also at the ready. Toaster, microwave and waffle cooker stood ready and waiting on the clean, clean counter. All the fixings for the above were there also: peanut butter, cream cheese, butter, jellies, syrup, and honey. There were also three kid and adult friendly cereals with milk to choose from. Yogurt was available as well. Several fresh fruits were in a fruit bowl on the counter to take with or have there. Yummy, yummy and all included in your room cost.

We were in such a hurry to get to Waynesville the next day to shop, we left both a cell phone charging and a favorite down pillow in the room. The hotel called to notify us as soon as the maid discovered our errors and we were able to collect our items before leaving Waynesville (talk about personal service). We will definitely be back to one of our favorite towns to visit and will again stay at Best Western Smokey Mountains Inn. They give AARP, AAA and other discounts so ask for the lowest rates. Great deal for a comfy motel, free terrific breakfast, great veiws, convenient to town and the highway and personal service from a friendly and helpful staff.

The breakfast attendant was helpful and constantly working to keep the breakfast area clean and crumb free with a smile. She is priceless in my opinion.

Room Tip: For the best view ask for front of motel not back. Back has the benefit of parking right outside yo...

average quality hotel with terrible quality breakfast, location over car dealer and very close to stores. Good hotel for one day stay, but not for the family stay. Housekeeping doing good job, everything else is average.

We stayed here 3 nights Nov 8-10 while visiting Smoky Mountain NP. The location was very convenient to the parkway, restaurants, and interstate. Room 241 was an excellent choice for view and quiet. It is an end unit (see photos). The room was very clean, king bed was very comfortable, towels fluffy, shower hot and strong, shower curtain bowed out. The heater kept the air dry which isn't the best for breathing comfortably, not uncommon in motels. This is a motel with parking just outside your rooms front door. We actually enjoyed this convenience. Although 241 is on the 2nd floor one can drive up to the back of the motel and park; taking the steps is not necessary.
For breakfast they offer the standard pastries, waffles, cereal, coffee, juices. The breakfast room is extremely cramped, but we understood that construction to expand it was about to get underway.
TV was good with the channels we enjoy. Lighting was good too. Table with 2 chairs and one easy chair. Refrigerator & microwave. So very comfortable stay.
The desk clerks were very helpful and efficient in checking us in and providing driving directions when asked.
We will probably stay here again next time we come to Waynesville.
