I stopped in Maryville on my way down to Florida, so I could finally drive "The Lion's Tail" mountain road into North Carolina, and the Luxbury looked to be on my route. I talked to Mehul at the front desk when I made my reservation that same afternoon. Luckily for me, Mehul was also working the desk the next morning before I left. I had been very tired the night before when I got in, and my sense of direction had become confused. (It had been a tough drive through the mountains of Kentucky and Tennessee the night before in hard rain.) I asked Mehul about how to get back on Hwy 129 to get to the Dragon's Tail and he suggested my taking the Foothills Parkway instead. It was the best advise I got from any desk person on my entire trip! In fact, I liked his route better than the "Tail" itself. I drive a modified 2013 Taurus and I could really fly on the Parkway! No police was also a bonus... The Tail is heavily patrolled.
My room was immaculate. Comments on Trip Adviser mentioning a lack of cleanliness must have come from their competition.
In short, I would absolutely stay here again. You will not read any other hotel reviews on this trip from me, simply because the desk people were not helpful at all. (putting it mildly)
ps The next day it snowed 2-3 inches, so I was very lucky on timing.
