We stay at this motel almost every weekend in the summer months. You certainly cannot beat the value. It has new owners and they have made some great improvements. The rooms are very clean, I've never had any issues with the NUMEROUS stays here. It's cozy and comfortable...and the VIEWS from your balcony cannot be beat. Nothing like sitting out...

Drive to Waynesville, NC last night for our hotel stay before heading to the Middle Prong Wilderness. Having done a lot of backpacking, you get used to staying in some sketchy places. This hotel was one of the cleanest hotels I have EVER stayed in. Mind you, I have stayed in some 5 star hotels throughout the world. This is...

Nothing I can say bad about staying there. Like I said. No over prices bells and whistles. Clean room and comfortable clean beds. A little out dated but it was fine for two nights. Would go back there if in area.

This hotel was a massive surprise. It was excellent value for money, the rooms were spacious (plenty of room to move around in a room with two queen beds), and really clean. I loved the view of the mountains and the sunrise was spectacular. I shall definitely return again

Place was horrible. Mold, dirt and filth. Bathroom floor was sticky. Had to wear shoes to use restroom. Really gross. My son and I got a room for the night on a weekend fishing trip. If we had spent more than the six hours we did I would have lodged formal complaints with the management, but we were trying to...

I was so happy to find this hotel in October. Large, clean room with wonderful views of the mountains. All rooms have rocking chairs. The 2nd and 3rd floor rooms have actual balconies. The 1st and 2nd floor rooms are both accessible from the ground level- because the hotel is on a hillside, the 2nd floor room access is on...

The room was clean. Bathroom needed serious updating. For example, the toilet lifted from the floor when you sat on it. We stayed for a night and it was ok, it just needs a bathroom redo in my opinion. The "breakfast" was waffles and cereal so plan on eating out.

We arrived around 8 pm. Front desk receptionist less than helpful. No elevator, and we had to carry luggage up 2 flights of stairs, dirty room & shady people hanging out in the parking lot. We couldn't wait to get out of there in the morning,

A very decent, clean place to stay. The views from the balcony were good. Very convenient for day trips. We were less than a mile from downtown Waynesville and all of the great shops and restaurants. We would stay here again if ever in the area.
