I have lost count how many times I have stayed there. 15-20 The grounds are beautiful. The hotel is so nice and quiet. Love it. The air conditioners need a little work. Most do not have a high fan which would help so much to cool the rooms off quicker and to air out the rooms. Everything was clean as usual and the staff is THE BEST! The restaurant next door has good food and gives you a discount if you stay at Talley Ho. Can't wait to go back.

Room Tip: Double check to make sure you get a room with a good air conditioner. I like the rooms in the back b...

Our FIAT group of about 70 people with 50 cars driving The Dragon, Devil's Triangle, Moonshiner 28, etc stayed here and were very pleased. The accommodations were simple, but the service, staff and environment were top notch! The hotel is close to the TN 73 entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park, there are gas stations an restaurants nearby and one restaurant is walkable as they share a driveway. It's an easy drive to the great roads like Tail of The Dragon in the area and not too far from Pigeon Forge if you want the touristy stuff.

The room itself was average. Had updated/modern furnishings and amenities. Beds are firm. The room was comfortable, and was very clean. However, had a strong musty odor. Our room was a double, we had a patio, and it is relaxing/peaceful outdoors. The internet was slow. All that being said, we would stay again.

We stayed at Tally Ho over the weekend. Sat we went out and came back to find termites all in the kitchen. We reported the problem to the front desk and left again. When we returned they were even worse. Sunday morning none of us could believe how many there were. We reported the problem again and did not even get so much as an apology but instead were told that they didn't actually own the cottage, just managed it. Well, they need to manage the bug problem because it was truly disgusting. Just unreal.

Room Tip: Do not stay in cottage #2.

We picked this hotel after driving by 3 others with higher Trip Advisor ratings. The others had similar advertised prices but looked much less appealing. The staff here were all very friendly and helpful. The upper floor King bed room was VERY spacious and had a private balcony. The restaurant next door gives a 10% discount to Tally Ho key holders.

The decor at Talley Ho Inn was plain and neutral but adequate and it was very clean. Microwave, coffeemaker and mini fridge in the room. Free wi-fi. Mattress was very firm. It was very quiet but not many people were there. We could hear the water being used in another room in the morning and I ran out of hot water during my shower, so water heater must be a shared one. We got up early and drove through Cades Cove the next morning and saw deer and turkey and even watched a fox for about 15 minutes.

The rooms are good size clean and our beds slept comfortable, staff was friendly and helpful. It was nice
to be in peaceful place not crowded by noisy traffic. I was satisfied by the cost and like supporting independent
business ,plan on staying there again.
