“Excellent!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 2 May 2014

I cannot say enough positive things about this place! This was our first time staying here and we chose this place due to the awesome reviews that were found on this site.
The folks in the office were incredibly nice and attentive. They are family owned and do not cater to any riff-raff which makes for a safe and worry-free stay.
We arrived on Friday April 25th and stayed 5 nights at the affordable price of $280 and some change. Our room was spotless with daily housekeeping & always had enough bright white clean towels and necessities. Blow dryer furnished, large flat screen tv with cable, mini fridge kept our drinks ice cold, and a microwave was a plus! We had a king size bed, table with 3 chairs and a comfortable couch were also in the room. The bed slept like Heaven...better than ours at home, plenty of space to hang clothes and drawer space in the dresser. Separate sink vanity with mirror from the shower tub unit in the bathroom. The motel was built in the 70's so the bathroom is small but large enough to do what has to be done! The flooring in the room was not carpet which we found great as it had no stains or hold odor like a carpeted room does and was so clean you could of ate off of it! The walls were of a light color paneling which made the room so homey.
Speaking of clean, everyday we were there someone was constantly performing cleaning chores of some kind like cleaning the office windows, vacuuming the parking lot, maintaining the lawn etc..
They also have grills and picnic tables on the river bank that runs behind the facility with friendly ducks looking to be fed! The sound of the water going by as we sat there was so peaceful! There is a small playground for the little ones beside the gated outdoor pool and a separate in ground wading pool for them as well. Patio tables with umbrellas are pool side. Did I mention clean? :) I cannot imagine staying anywhere else while in the mountains. It felt just like home to us.

we appreciate your thoughtful review, Carla.

we are very lucky to have the type of clientele that make our guests feel safe and relaxed. many of our guests strike up friendships with their fellow travelers and look forward to seeing them and our staff year after year.

the non-carpeted rooms were done as an experiment and we have had many positive comments. it's true that the floor is easier to keep clean and odor-free.

I stumbled on this place the last night in town when plans changed and I didn't have a reservation. The people were so nice here! The room was clean and quiet to be right on the strip. It may not be the most updated interior decor but nothing horrible. I would absolutely stay here again! The price was lower to mid end for the area it seemed. No breakfast provided but there are so many placed to eat nearby it wasn't an issue. The location was perfect. In the middle of everything but far enough off the main road to be quiet. I walked to The Island and it wasn't too far. A good value overall.

thanks, sher. our décor isn't old, just old-timey. we would rather keep it that way, replacing carpets, mattresses, furniture, etc. on a regular basis instead of remodeling every few years. we'd rather keep things clean and neat and save you money. that's why there are no digital signs, credit card-type keys, elevators or indoor pools.

compare our rates with motels serving continental breakfast and you will probably save enough to have a nice restaurant breakfast.

our rates are on our website, maplesmotorinn.com. don't you wish every motel published their guaranteed rates?

We stayed in November based on Tripadvisor reviews and we were not disappointed. Rooms are comfortable and immaculate. When we began planning our upcoming trip to Pigeon Forge, booking a room at the Maple was first on our list. Great little hotel!

Have stayed at Maples several times over the years. It certainly isn't one of the most modern but it is a good, safe, quiet and clean place to stay that's reasonably priced. You can tell by watching the activity of the staff during the day, cleaning the rooms, parking lot and grounds that they take a lot of pride in their establishment. Rooms are smaller than some of the newer chains but at about 1/3 the price of some of the others, it's a great place to spend a restful night. Carpets, beds and bathroom are all clean and well- maintained. Staff is friendly and very helpful.
Used to stay at another family- owned motel but watched it go further into disrepair each time we stayed. Glad we found Maples!

If you are looking for a clean and reasonable place to stay then Maples is the place for you. We stay at Maples each time we are in the area unless they are closed. The rooms, grounds, and pool are well maintained. Family owned, very friendly staff and they appreciate your business as well. They don't play games with their rates either and we appreciate that. Maples is also located in a very good and safe location.

Thanks, sm! We open for the season on March 14. We also are sending out our 2014 rate sheet, so if you stayed with us last year you should be getting it in the mail soon. Of course you can see our rates right now on our website, maplesmotorinn.com. "Clean, reasonable, and quiet" does sum us up, especially when you toss in "friendly" and "family owned." Come see what sm is talking about.

We stayed here because of good reviews on this site, stayed for one night and it was very reasonable in price, comfortable beds, pleasant staff, everything you needed and would definitely stay here again. FYI, they close Jan 1st for a couple of months during off season.

We stayed here for one night as we often come up to pigeon forge for short stays to visit Dollywood. We loved the lights and loved this quaint little place for our night's sleep. It was clean, quite, plenty of space, and in a good location. Most of all it fits our budget! Next spring/summer when we come up of our frequent family getaways to dollywood/splash country, Maples will be the first place we check for our stay!
