We came to the end of our vacation and decided to stay 2 extra nights in a hotel cause the cabin we were staying at was already booked. So we decided on Talley Ho Inn and what a nice surprise. Room was very clean and view from balcony was nice too. We really enjoyed that it was so close to...

Cottage #1 has been completely updated and is very comfortable. We had a family reunion there and it easily accommodated all 17 of us using the fold out couches as well as the beds there. One thing I will say is that there only 2 1/2 baths, not 3 baths which can be difficult trying to juggle showers with as...

We had a three night stay at their Fox Den cottage. I was very clean and cozy. The staff was friendly and accommodating. Their outdoor pool has a salt water filtration system, and that was really nice - no eye burn! We love Townsend - such a nice little town with tons of outdoor activities for all. Try the Tally...

We just spent 2 nights a this charming Inn. We stayed in the Fox Den cottage with 2 bedrooms and one bath. It was quiet, comfortable and really clean. It is obvious that they care about cleanliness and make every effort to keep it that way. The grounds were freshly cared for and the staff was friendly and helpful. We...

Decent place to stay. One item that needed attention is that there were a considerable amount of bird droppings on the balcony. Otherwise large rooms, decent bedding and decent view from some of the rooms.

I have lost count how many times I have stayed there. 15-20 The grounds are beautiful. The hotel is so nice and quiet. Love it. The air conditioners need a little work. Most do not have a high fan which would help so much to cool the rooms off quicker and to air out the rooms. Everything was clean as...

Our FIAT group of about 70 people with 50 cars driving The Dragon, Devil's Triangle, Moonshiner 28, etc stayed here and were very pleased. The accommodations were simple, but the service, staff and environment were top notch! The hotel is close to the TN 73 entrance to Smoky Mountain National Park, there are gas stations an restaurants nearby and one...

The room itself was average. Had updated/modern furnishings and amenities. Beds are firm. The room was comfortable, and was very clean. However, had a strong musty odor. Our room was a double, we had a patio, and it is relaxing/peaceful outdoors. The internet was slow. All that being said, we would stay again.

We stayed at Tally Ho over the weekend. Sat we went out and came back to find termites all in the kitchen. We reported the problem to the front desk and left again. When we returned they were even worse. Sunday morning none of us could believe how many there were. We reported the problem again and did not even...
