Overall appearance is of a well-maintained lower mid-range hotel. General Manager was accessible to guests. It is a two story hotel with no elevator. There is little or no traffic noise as the hotel is set back from a secondary road leading into Bryson City. The closest restaurant is a fast food outlet about 300 yards from the hotel (downhill), so if you don't have a car, getting dinner could be a problem since there are no restaurants in Bryson City which deliver to the hotel. In our case, the General Manager offered to drive us to a restaurant in his personal car--a very considerate gesture.
Rooms are fairly small, but well appointed. Windows open to provide fresh air. The room we had did not have a tub, but rather a large walk-in shower with a fantastic adjustable shower head. Our room was spotless. Furnishings were in good condition.
The breakfast, included in the room price, was basic, but offered fresh fruit and a large enough assortment of other items to cater to a variety of tastes. The seating area is small.
For the level of service received, we feel we received very good value for the money--certainly much less than if we had stayed in touristy Cherokee 1/2 hour north.
