The owners don't invest any money or time to keep this motel up. The walls are dirty and where they did paint, it was just spot painting and of course the paint didn't match the existing paint. And why isn't there any electical outlets in the bathroom? Women need that. The toilet leaked and had to constantly put layers of...

For being what it was I was pleasantly surprised. When we called to reserve a room the staff wanted us to arrive as soon as possible rather than in a few hours like we'd been planning. So frustrating but not impossible. The room we were assigned was apparently a smoking room as evidenced by a lingering scent and an ashtray...

This hotel isnt close to anything, its a rat-hole motel, the owners got confrontational after I tried to get out of my reservation. I felt threatened by Kenny and no one else spoke english. My advice? Stay away

On August 30, 2014 I contacted Hotels-Rates.com while in transit to Asheville, North Carolina due to a family emergency. The representative told me that there was a room available at Whispering Pines and proceeded to provide me with the typical information about the room. He further stated that the establishment was rated with 3 stars, but he failed to explain...

We placed a reservation online for this motel. Our plans have changed and we called to cancel and they were very rude and told us we still had to pay for the room even thought we weren't staying there. The manager is very rude and hostel.

Manager tried to to get a way too high price and sank very fast down to the half of his first demand. It was still too expensive. Two or three times a man knocked on every motel door, I asked him, what he wanted and it seemed he was begging for drugs. The rest of the night I was very...

Located on Smoky Park Highway main road. Pleasant office manager, clean room & bathroom. Bed a little firmer than I prefer- I like a soft bed. Enough clean towels, coffee pot, microwave, refrigerator, free wi fi and cable TV. Ice machine on premises for the ice chest. All in working condition. Good value for a night or so while traveling....

Our room was dirty. Bed sheets had fresh blood stains and other white stains!! Maybe a rent by the hour place!! Everything was filthy!

Well first the place was small and dirty. It looks shady and the manager was very rude. He also charged my card for the wrong amount and an unauthorized extra charge to my card. Id highly advise u stay else where.

My husband and I needed a place to crash after a long day of driving. The office staff seemed suspicious and not overly friendly but for $62 that was fine with me. The room had an odd scent but was serviceably clean, not brand new, showing some signs of age in the walls and ceiling. Mattress was cumfy, sheets were...
