Made it to Bryson City, late evening. Checked with a couple other motels, but they were booked up. Friendly front desk staff. Clean, but dated room. Looks like they recently put in quality Windows. No noise, from outside. Not much hot water, but good water pressure.

This is not a 4 star Hotel but the owners make up the difference. The view is beautiful. If you are a rider then you will love the fact that every morning you will find a clean towel draped over your seat to wipe off the dew so that you have a dry butt for your ride. My bike was... More

If you expect the TAJ MAHAL then keep looking. If you want to be around friendly, caring people, clean facilities, great location, and at a great price--then this is place for you. The only negative is the rooms are small--however I do not go to a tourist town to stay in my room. When I go back to Bryson you... More

The hotel is dated, but very clean! The linens were clean. There is no continental breakfast but does have a coffee maker and refrigerator in the room. The staff was very welcoming. They even put towels on our motorcycles so we can wipe off the morning dew. For the price, would definitely stay there again.

Clean rooms, friendly staff, attention to detail as far as customer service goes, second to none . We have several friends meet there and are never disappointed, the grounds are clean and the location is exactly where you would want to be, right on top overlooking the city..

Great little throw-back Motel. Very clean and comfortable. Nicely kept garden throughout the grounds, around the pool. Staff was very accomadating and friendly. Nice little view and really interesting road on the way there that was a great way to end the day driving the Blue Ridge Mountain Parkway and start the next day at The Tail Of the Dragon.

The room was very clean and comfortable, we especially enjoyed the courtyard and patio table. the owners were very friendly and courteous and overall it was so relaxing. you have a nice view of the mountains from the top level. we loved it so much we are returning for another stay. Great place to get away from it all.

Mine is almost verbatim of the review just previous to mine, but it is written with my exact sentiment, so I am plagiarizing a little. :) It wasn't expensive. "The owners were nice and courteous.
