“Another Great Stay”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

We love this little motel. The owners are so welcoming and friendly. The rooms are extra clean and spacious. We got good tips from the owner on restaurants in the area and some good new hikes that we had not done before. We will be back on our next visit to the Smokies.

The Townsend Gateway Inn is very clean and well maintained. The owners are friendly and helpful. The town is quiet but offers several restaurant options. We would stay here again.

Townsend Gateway Inn is a fantastic place! The owners are extremley nice, and are there for your every need. The rooms are CLEAN and a very nice size. When I come to GSMNP I come to get away from the crowds and enjoy the park. TGI is convinent to the park and restaurants in Townsend and is defintely a gem on the peaceful side of the smokies!!!!!

This place was too rustic for me. Fixtures looked updated, and motel type rooms are clean, but linens were worn out and dingy. Minimal service and amenities. There is nothing in the town except cabins and restaurants, so be prepared to entertain yourself. Not sure the others are better.

Checked glowing reviews for TGI on TripAdvisor and booked accordingly.
An older family run place with large clean rooms but dated furniture, tv, and if there is such a thing, 'dated wireless' which came and went all afternoon/evening.
Friendly staff and convenient to the Park, but somewhat over-rated for the money by other TA reviewers in my opinion.

what a neat place to stay! Beautiful rooms that are tastefully decorated and very clean. Nice rockers on the porch. Very friendly owners who treated us very respectfully and helpful about reccommending where to eat. We only stayed one night but wished we had planned longer. Well done Michael!
