We love to stay here when we go to Cade's Cove. It is very clean, beds are comfortable. The price is great! And it's very convenient to Cade's Cove. Brenda makes you feel like family!! We've been staying here for years and would not stay anywhere else!

Love this little hotel. It's in a great quiet location and has a beautiful view of the mountains. Everything you can imagine to do here is within driving distance. Reasonable rates. Clean rooms. Love all the little extras they provide too.

Old, dated hotel but I like that, reminds me of going to the Smokies when I was a kid. Rooms are always very clean, bathroom is spotless. Two swimming pools that are old but kept clean. Not a place for partiers, but if you are looking for peace and quiet, reasonable rates this is it.

We stayed at Headricks for one night and were very pleased with the cleanliness of the room. If you are looking for a simple and inexpensive room you could do far worse than this pleasant place. The staff were very friendly and helpful.
