Our room was clean. We had all the needed essentials. Planning on staying again, due to the cleanliness and the beds were comfortable. Close to grocery store set in a small town atmosphere. No breakfast served but close to restaurant also.

Can't beat the price, recently remodeled. Very clean rooms, nice bathrooms. The mattresses are very low to the ground, but comfortable. Has a great refrigerator with separate freezer and microwave in room. Great option for staying affordably near Banner Elk, Boone, or Blowing Rock.

Shady Lawn Lodge was all we were expecting. Convenient, clean, and comfortable. If we are ever in the area again, we will certainly stay there again! I found the lodging through Trip Advisor and was not at all disappointed.

My second stay at this hotel. No hassle, no "surprises". Clean, comfortable, and the most spacious bathroom I've ever seen. Newland is a tiny town but that's ok. The restaurants are within walking distance. A couple of fast food types, a bbq , (which seems to be the local favorite, The Mason Jar, and one featuring Asian cuisine. And I...

Room was spacious and had an OK king sized bet that was low to the ground and was a little soft for my liking. Furniture was OK but would have been better with an easy chair or couch in it. Had a table and 2 chairs but the chairs were not comfortable for long term leisurly sitting. Bathroom was great...

This place is quite quaint, but outside is neat and clean. The room was clean and nice, just wish I could say the same for the bed!... When I turned the covers down, to go to bed for the night, there were either Blood smears or do-do stains! Yuck! turned my stomach! I ended up sleeping on top of all...
