“Wonderful place to stay!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 3 August 2011

This was my fourth stay. We keep coming back. Why? First it is very very clean. Rooms are nice size and decorated nicely. But the owners are what make it even better. You could not find a better bunch of people.Take my advise and stay there,and you will see what I mean. You will not be disappointed..

We have friends in the area and will definitely be back. We travel with our dog and having a room with wood floors instead of carpeting was a treat. The room was clean and comfortable and the welcome basket they provided served as a breakfast. Everyone went out fo their way to provide us with anything we needed. This is a family run hotel and they are still in the process of bringing the rooms up to their standards. They bought the place aboutt 2 yrs ago or so and have been improving the rooms etc since then. We would definitely recommend the Gateway to anyone planning a visit to Towsend.

This place is absolutely wonderful!! The ladies who run it are a gem ... friendly, helpful, and very knowledgeable about the area. Our room was spotless and has been updated very nicely. Thank you for a wonderful stay! We stayed in one of the regular rooms, but I would love to try one of the cottages next time.

We return to the Smokies every year. Our stays have been in cabins/chalets. Our drive to the Smokies is 11-12 hours and we usually arrive after dark. We decided to try a motel for that first late night arrival as finding some of the cabins/chalets in the dark is very frustrating. This was was a great choice. Very clean as others have posted. The 50's era look on the outside would not make me stop if I had not found it top rated on Trip Advisor, but the interior was definitely updated with wood floors and modern furnishings. We were met at our late arrival by an authentic looking mountain man with the long salt and pepper beard setting the mood for our mountain visit. He was friendly and entertaining as he got us quickly into our room. We will be back next year.

Friendly family owned place, nice rocking chairs out front to relax after a long day of hiking. Complimentary basket with coffee & snack items is great for peeps on the go. Free wireless worked great in our room (#8). We had an updated room with 2 queen beds.

Such friendly owners and such good value for money i can't recommend this place enough.
We arrived really late but the owners were kind enough to wait for us and see us into our cottage. The accommodation was very clean and comfortable and really well equipped. We only had one night here but wished it was longer.
