The owners/staff could not be nicer or more helpful. The outdoor areas provide a really friendly vibe with the other guests. It is an extremely pet and people friendly place but badly in need of up-dating.

This is a neat place to stay ..The room was a little small but still nice and clean..It is family oriented and they are very nice people and the children are well mannered.. I stayed here for three nights and enjoyed it very much.

This motel is a gem. Nice, clean room with great rates. Family that owns and runs this place is wonderful. Nice pool, wonderful gazebo with fire pit and grills. We will definitely return! It is situated on a hilltop in a nice, quiet neighborhood. We sat by the fire with other guests each night and truly enjoyed the experience

The Ridge Top Motel is a a great deal.. The rate was very affordable, check in was quick. The owners are very helpful. The room was quiet and clean with comfy beds and a nice view of the mountains. Room had microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Good wifi Will stay here again next time I am in the area.

The owners are so very nice. The location is great. The pool area is nice. The price is ok. Week days are less than weekend nights. But the rooms needs some desperate TLC. The desk is way to big so there is no room left for your "stuff". The A/C needs to be updated.

This mountain top motel is precious. We did not have reservations for the night and just saw a sign at the foot of a hill and started to climb. The motel has around 30 rooms and nice pool. The price was so low we were a little concern about the condition of the rooms. We checked it out and rented...

This motel was extremely close to downtown Bryson City and was a fantastic price for what you get. The rooms are a little old (CRT TV, window unit AC, etc), but my room was safe, clean, quiet, and comfy. The internet often did not work, but you're vacationing in the mountains so that really shouldn't matter. The covered pavillion area...

If you are used to anything better than Motel 6 than don't bother. The only positive is the pool. Couldn't hardly move through the room because of the office desk. Hair in the tub. Woke up to a bug walking across the floor. Bathroom has no counter space.

We always enjoy our visit to the Ridge Top Motel. Sanjay and Rena work very hard maintaining their motel and keeping it clean for their guests. We enjoy sitting on the front porch or on the porch outside our rooms smelling the fresh mountain air and listening to the birds sing. We will be back on our next visit to...
