“Quiet getaway”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 April 2014 via mobile

My sister and I are not big shoppers. We came to area just to veg out and see nature. This hotel is perfect for a quiet getaway. Very, very, clean , hardwood floors, comfortable beds, small fridge, and even a gift basket with fresh treats every day of our stay. Less than 10 miles to Cades Cove, which is where we wanted to be . Will definitely return to this hotel!

We chose this Inn based on the reviews. They were all correct, it is a great place to stay. The area is quiet, the rooms are clean and the owners provided a goodie basket. We would recommend this to all and will stay here again when we return to the area. The only downfall was the room next to us where the women wanted to talk all night. No fault of the owners. Great place to stay and the rocking chairs are a plus.

Just got back from staying 3 nights and was a very nice stay. Owner was very cordial and helpful with whatever needs there was. Room was very comfortable and had everything you needed. And loved the goody basket that they refilled daily. The Rocking chairs on our front porch added a warm homey feel. But most of all, they welcomed our Labrador that came with us on our vacation and was able to feel comfortable with her being there. Owners are Dog lovers also. Sometimes it's hard to find a Motel that will welcome your pet, and they were able to do that! We will be back....... Thank you for our stay.

Room Tip: Had corner suite (on end), worked great with having dog.

Green Features: Wasn't real crazy about the liquid soap....smelled like Right guard deodorant. But liked having the recycling bin in room to help out.

Recently stayed here. Close to Cade's Cove. Room very clean. Owner left basket with snacks/muffins. A very nice touch. Quiet area in the Smokies with a few restaurants in the area which were convenient. I would recommend this place to anyone traveling to this area.

We stayed 3 nights and was a very nice stay! The beds are comfortable, rooms are very nicely decorated and updated. The owner had the heat turned on when we arrived, very cozy. We received a "goody basket" daily, very nice touch. Will for sure stay here whenever we are in Townsend.

After reading the reviews on TripAdvisor, we booked three nights. We checked in on New Years night somewhat late. It was a chilly night and the owner had the light on in our room and had turned on the heat so that the room was welcoming and comfortably warm when we arrived. At check in, the owner asked if we preferred coffee or tea. We explained that we don't drink either so he offered hot chocolate. As we finished unloading our luggage, he brought a basket of goodies to our room which included the hot chocolate, mugs, spoons, and a variety of snacks. The room was very clean and I especially loved the hard wood floors. The only issue we encountered was that ESPN was not available in the room. Not so great when traveling during the college football bowl season :) We enjoyed our time but due to sickness had to leave a day early. Due to snow in the area, we had difficulty getting out of the parking lot. I gave the owner a call (he was at home next door) and he came to help us out by putting sand under our tires and driving the vehicle down to the street. This hotel was a great find and we hope to return one day!

We had been staying at a different location in Townsend when a terrible storm came and knocked out all power and running water at our remote cabin. We couldn't reach the management company and weren't comfortable staying somewhere remote without power or water, so we packed up, called Townsend Gateway Inn, and were able to get a last-minute booking in one of their little cabins with the kitchenette. The owner was in the middle of eating dinner with his family, but he stopped to help us get settled in and get our kids comfortable so they could go to bed. The unit was exceptionally clean, comfortable, and perfect for our family of four. The kitchen facility was great and saved us money on meals, and we appreciated having a door between the living area and the sleeping area. It was also very affordably priced, had a beautiful view, and was surprisingly quiet given the proximity to the road. I wished we had stayed here for our entire stay in Townsend. I would stay here again in a heartbeat.

Room Tip: The individual cabin was quiet, with a door between the kitchen/living room and bedroom. Great for...
