The room rate is as advertised - $52+. Only two issues of concern: the toilet is about 12-14" off the ground. So if you are taller, or have senior issues, this may be a challenge, as the room did not have handbars? Did not ask for handicapped, but have to guess one is available. Two - breakfast bar is meager,... More

This was a nice clean budget sort of hotel, our room had not been renovated yet, but was clean and comfortable. Fluffy Pillows. Had a hair dryer, and a good shower. Nice view of the Smoky Mountains if you walk to the back of the hotel. Also a Shoney's is across the street, moderate price eating with a great salad... More

Found this well managed facility by accident and glad I did. Nice, recently renovated room with all the in-room amenities you might want. Very convenient location just off the Interstate, on a service road that also has several restaurants and service stations. Included breakfast offered cold cereal, waffles, and biscuits and gravy. For those who want a more substantial breakfast,... More

Checked in at the Jefferson Inn early evening. Attendee at the desk was very helpful and offered to put us on the ground floor rather than have to deal with the stairs....ended up with 2 double beds instead of 1 King but worked out ok for 1 night. Room was VERY clean and quite large. Beds were a little hard... More

Got there at 4am, showered, slept, showered again. Continental breakfast is over at 9am, so we missed that. I asked to have late checkout, since we got in so late, we wanted to sleep later.

This motel is no frills, but the rooms are clean, beds comfortable, and breakfast very basic but okay, although my husband said the orange juice tasted bad. There is an outdoor pool which we did not use. It is very small, but looked clean and inviting if you were in need of a cool dip. The lobby and halls were... More

We stayed here for our visit to Smoky Mountains. The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and Gatlinburg are not far from this motel. We enjoyed our stay here. The rooms were clean and well maintained. I would definitely recommend this motel.

We have stayed here before and will stay again. The inn is clean and efficient. Continental breakfast is served each morning. While there is no protein available, you get coffee, juice, cereal, toast or biscuits and gravy! You CAN'T beat the price. With so many other ways to spend your dollars, why overpay? Rooms have microwaves and dorm-sized refrigerators.
