    « Best Western Murphy NC »

    My Wife, Myself and our Lab stayed at the Best Western Hotel in Murphy NC over the weekend . The hotel was full with fire fighters that weekend because of the of the wild fires in the area. The room we had was for pets and had a water bowl and pet dish. The room was nice and quiet and the maid service was excellent. We had a breakfast in the morning that was very nice.

    « Mountain Trip »

    Had a great trip to the mountains.The leaves were falling from the trees, but still had some color to them. I Best Western motel we stayed in, in Murphy, N.C. was very nice. If you go to Murphy I recommend this motel. It is very clean and the staff is very nice and helpful.

    « Super clean with friendly staff »

    I stayed here for one night while visiting my daughter's family. They have purchased a log cabin in Murphy and just love the area. Since they had just closed on the house and furniture not arrived yet I stayed at this hotel. Staff is very friendly and my room was very clean and appeared to be recently upgraded. They serve a continental breakfast with some pancakes also--every item was fresh and the attendant very accommodating. My only wish would have been a booster chair or highchair for my granddaughter to eat breakfast and my suggestion to get one was really listened to I believe so maybe it will be there next time. I plan to stay here next time that I visit if not enough room at my daughter's cabin when I bring other relatives with me to visit the area. There is a Walmart across the street and a Bojangles restaurant in walking distance if you need anything. Enjoyed my stay??

    « Good value »

    Staff was extremely helpful. Room was clean and comfortable. Amenities were pretty much standard. If we were to travel back to Murphy we would definitely stay there again. I believe there was also a pool there, but it was closed during our stay.

    « VERY NICE »

    The staff was great and very help for we were evacuated for hurricane Mathew from South Carolina. The staff was very help and understanding and even were pet friendly. I can't say enough about this hotel. The rooms were very nice and comfortable and Clean! Yes I would tell anyone to stay here and would stay again and again.

    « Great Stay!! »

    Wonderful,staff,room and breakfast!Such a great experience,i will be back! Room appeared to be newly updated.Staff were so friendly.Breakfast was small but nice,i had the raisin toast and 2 glasses of o.j. Granddaughter and daughter had,juice toast,pancakes,cereal and fruit. My hubby had raisin toast with peanut.

    « Two night stay »

    Front desk was very friendly and helpful. Rooms and linens were very clean. Breakfast was very nice, good hot coffee. Nice quiet 2 night stay. Not far from the town of Murphy and several local restaurants.

    « Nice stay »

    Nice little hotel with a reasonable price. very clean. Could use a better breakfast but they did not have enough space. Quiet. Staff was friendly at check in and all went well. I would stay here again.

    « Very clean, quiet, comfortable, and friendly »

    Was a clean and comfortable hotel. They provide a cloth to wipe down the motorcycle, and have a bike wash station on premises. The hotel was quiet, and even though we were on the ground floor, we heard nothing from other guests or traffic while we were there. Highly recommend.

    « Nice, very clean, friendly staff »

    We were traveling on a 15 day, 3100 mile driving trip having stayed at 7 different hotels. The Murphy Best Western was the cleanest and friendliest among those. The lobby doubles as a breakfast area with cereal, pancakes, pastries are available. Very nice hotel staff. The hotel accepts dogs at $15 charge.

    « Great staff, clean, comfortable rooms »

    Spent several days here while looking at property in the Murphy area. The rooms were very clean and comfortable and staff was very helpful and friendly. Continental breakfast was adequate and wifi worked flawlessly. I'll be back for a couple days in November and will be staying here again.

    « Over night stay »

    Front desk at both check in and check out friendly. I was surprised that the room was renovated and well kept. Nothing to complain about this location. If you like Wally World (AKA) Wal Mart it is located across the street. There is a Bojangles Chicken restaurant within walking distance.

    « mountain hide away »

    easy in and out. Close to everything - casino is less than a mile away. Restaurants within walking distance as well as drug store and a Walmart. Comfortable clean rooms. Friendly staff. Pet friendly. Two levels with plenty of parking

    « Pleasantly surprised »

    Taking an extended motorcycle trip, I was pleasantly surprised to come across this property. It is conveniently located just off the highway, but does not experience undue highway noise. The staff is very pleasant and accommodating, the room clean, the hot water abundant (be careful!) and the bath drains work standing in the shower with water up to your ankles as the drain struggles to keep up with the water flow!! While the breakfast area is limited, the breakfast offerings are well laid out so as to maximize space. A nice touch is that if you miss breakfast, some items are still available for purchase at a nominal price. I think this is an idea that other properties might consider implementing. All in all, this property offers nice value for your traveling dollar.

    « Excellent staff, nicely appointed, very clean »

    I have stayed at this Best Western on three different occasions. My son and I are currently involved in a child custody case. The staff is very professional yet remembers and cares about us. They and the children are the only enjoyable parts of the trip.

    « very welcoming »

    This hotel exceeded our expectations. The room was very spacious and seems to have been recently renovated. It was convenient to get to. The employees were friendly and accommodating. We requested a quiet room and were put in a room that was absolutely quiet.

    « Great hotel and location »

    This hotel was very clean, easy to get in and out of and the location is great being 2 miles from the casino, across the hwy from Walmart and only a few miles from down town Murphy. Next door is a Burger King and on the other side of that is a Big Lots other stores and a nice restaurant, Brothers. Across the street is a Bojangles. Dollar General just down the street. Bed was a little firm for me; however my husband and son like them. Ice machine on our side of the hotel was on the second floor towards the front. AC was running for us at check in so the room was already cool. That is always nice.

    « TIME AWAY »

    Had a very good stay at this hotel, the outside could use some updating but the rooms are very clean. Check in was very easy and staff were very friendly. Only stayed the 1 night on this trip but will stay there again for future visits.

    « Great Little Motel. »

    We stayed at the Best Western of Murphy for one night at the start of our road trip in May this year. We had flown into Atlanta and driven the 120 miles after our arrival. We just wanted somewhere to stay overnight before continuing our drive to the Great Smoky Mountains. The motel was perfect for our needs. Big Room, Comfortable Bed, Easy Parking, Good Breakfast and lovely, helpful and friendly staff. There is a Walmart just across the street, although I would advise driving as the street did not look the easiest to cross. We stocked up on supplies for our trip. Although very close to the road, we were not troubled by any traffic noise. I would recommend this motel for anyone travelling in the area. Great value!

    « Cheaper if you call Hotel direct »

    Kim at the front desk was Great Very nice! I booked this on line I was not happy to find out it would have been $30 dollars cheaper if I would have just called the motel direct . Also booking online you are unable to cancel without losing you money for the room.

    « very good »

    Location is perfect for our needs. Close to shopping, good restaurants, fast food places and entertainment. Easy access from several directions. Not far from some great mountain scenery and attractions.

    « Bad Experience »

    This is one of the poorest Best Westerns we have stayed at over the years. Room was smelly (tobacco), floor tread and bottom of door allowed outside light in and probably some small creep crawlers. A/C unit roared, very noisy, kicking on and off all night. it is our experience that this is not a typical Best Western Hotel.

    « Did not stay.....cancelled room »

    Arrived approximately 11:30Am on the day of stay. Room was not ready and was told that I could check in any time in the afternoon. After visiting the Casino, we returned back to motel to check in approximately 5:30pm. I had requested a room on 1st floor when I made the reservations. They advised that there were no rooms available on 1st floor. Sorry but none are available. We cancelled the room and left and drove back to Georgia. (I had requested 1st floor due to my knee problems and I could not climb stairs) Edward A. Standard 678 469 6834

    « great »

    This hotel was nice. The internet was very slow and couldn't stay on line. The shower head wasn't on Only had one towel and 1 cup for coffee. Left a note for more towels and cups and they did. Close to work I work and the Casino too. Beautiful place with a big gazbo and picnic area.

    « Great Getaway »

    Me and the Wife often visit the Casino in the area and find this location very convenient. The hotel is nice and clean and the staff are very friendly. I always stay here when I'm in the area. Great location to the Casino.

    « Very Nice Hotel »

    Very nice & affordable hotel. Friendly staff, helpful & professional. Great room too. Very clean & updated. In walking distance to fast food restaurants & local Wal-Mart. Would definitely advise another traveler in this area to stay here.

    « Last Minute Trip to Casino »

    This hotel is very clean and the front desk staff are friendly and helpful. There was a problem with late checkout, it wasn't noted, but they remedied the situation in an excellent manner. We did not have the breakfast so I cannot comment on it, but the internet worked well and the room was clean and comfortable. Love that there is a fridge and microwave in the room.

    « Good get-away »

    Great place for stay with pets. Room did not smell like the last pet. Very clean and updated. Only snag was not being able to check in an hour early but when we did check in, it was smooth. Breakfast was good. I really like the pancake maker. Quiet with only occasional road noise.

    « Great room, super modern and clean »

    We enjoyed our stay at Best Western in Murphy. The rooms were super pleasant and clean. Great bed with extra pillows. Very well-maintained. Quiet and peaceful, even on a holiday weekend. Ample parking. Coffee in lobby. Breakfast also served. Great shower. Bathroom extra clean. Great experience all around.

    « Nice place to stay... »

    I was under the impression to use the rewards card I was issued it would save me or at least reward me for using the hotel website directly to make reservations. It ended up costing me more money! I was charged $19.99 to use the hotel site directly. A whole separate charge completely from the room plus tax. It is cheaper to use which I always have use in the past. I did not complain, but being I was asked more than once to give a review so I want to say this. Be aware. Do not use the hotel website to make reservations if you think you will save money like I did. I will use this hotel again. I like it, they know me because I stay there quite often and will again. That is my only complaint.

    « Pleasant surprise! »

    I have not been to a Best Western in years. This was a very pleasant surprise. The place is very well maintained and the staff very attentive. The mattress was awesome...I wanted to take it home with me! Breakfast was adequate for us. It's not a huge spread but we don't eat a lot in the morning anyway. My only suggestion would be to put a few umbrellas around the pool area as there is no shade at all. All in all a very pleasant stay!

    « Training experience »

    Great little BW. Stopped after long day on motorcycle and lots of rain. Late check in and the girl was great. She let us know it was her first night on duty alone and she was willing to find answers for our questions. She will be great once she is comfortable being on duty alone. Never got flustered and found the answers for us. Nice rooms for the price. Breakfast could of had a little more to offer. Room was quiet and got a good night's sleep. Would stay here again if we are in area.

    « Very nice place to stay »

    Very nice accommodations close to the attractions we were interested in and close to various restaurants and fast food places. If you like Walmart, it's right across the street. The Casino is 5 minutes down the road.

    « Very Clean Room »

    Since we have stayed at Best Western before I decided to try this location. Room was very clean! We had two "queen" beds which were actually doubles...small for two adults, trim adults at that! Typical hotel room...not big but they did have a fairly large sized refrigerator, microwave and safe all in that room!

    « short casino trip »

    Just felt like gambling for a night so we stayed at the Best Western. We stayed there last month and loved t, so we made it our place to stay this month again. You will not be disappointed with your stay The only complain is the very small lobby and breakfast area.

    « Wonderful, Pet-Friendly Hotel »

    This is a clean, pleasant hotel. Pet-friendly rooms are limited, so make sure you say you're bringing a pet if you make reservations. The staff was very helpful, especially when it came to suggesting a place for dinner and an area scenic drive.

    « Incredibly clean and friendly staff. »

    Incredibly clean rooms, comfortable beds, and a very friendly staff. We travel with our Westie, and it was perfect for him too with a good walking area. Good complimentary breakfast. We will definitely stay there again when our travels bring us this way. Good choice.

    « Staff Made the Stay Pleasant »

    Any question, any problem ALL members of the staff were there to make our stay pleasurable. We had a pet room, which was very clean and they dog walking area was very well kept and cleaning bags were provided. The most pleasurable were ALL of the staff on duty at all times.

    « Great place to spend the night »

    This motel was so clean and well maintained. The Staff was super nice and very helpful in helping us to find a great place to eat while there. Rooms were spacious for three adults. Bathroom was very up to date. Will be staying there again on our next trip to Virginia.

    « Great overnight stay »

    The hotel is not new, but it was clean and is a well-maintained property. All the carpet, tile, fixtures and furniture appeared quite new. I slept through breakfast. The staff was very friendly and there was ample parking.

    « Mr. »

    Very clean. Friendly employees. Pet friendly.All rooms were clean.Free breakfast very good. Lots of choices. Pool available. In good location, close to restaurants, and Casino.My wife and I were traveling with our pet,and this hotel made our accommodations very easy.

    « Not disappointing at all »

    We have stayed here before. The staff is so nice, did have a problem with one of them but the manager is working with her. The only thing we suggest is ceiling fan. It is quieter than the ac. We ended staying there for 3 days.

    « Murphy Property Stay »

    We were delighted with the renovated Best Western. The staff was unusually cheerful and helpful. The room was surprisingly clean and decor pleasing. We remembered staying here years ago and quite honestly considered not trying it because it was so old. No sign of its age from the room at all. We will stay there again as we visit Murphy about once a year on business/pleasure.

    « Good hotel and resable price! »

    The staff at Best Western are very friendly and nice, our room was clean and the beds sleep good. There is a wal-mart close by and restaurants we ate at Brothers and if you take your card you get 10% off the meal. We enjoyed our stay and if in town again would stay there again. The internet is good!

    « wonderful stay during casino trip »

    We had stayed at a Best Western over the years, but were kind of hesitant because of a location issue before. This time we picked this Best Western because of the location. It's very close to the Casino and the motel looked very clean and becoming from the outside. It turned out to be very clean and becoming from the inside as well. Wonderful place to stay and we'll be back.

    « Real Estate Inspections Trip »

    We arrived about 8:30pm on a Friday and the check in process was quick and pleasant. We were in room 119 a ground floor room. The motel/hotel is old school with drive up and park at the room door access and is a two story building. The room was very clean including the carpet and the bath/sink area. We liked the in room micro/fridge and the fridge worked perfect. We always save our leftovers from meals for later so a fridge that actually works well is a pleasant surprise. The room had a large flat screen T.V. that worked and the ventilation was quiet. The breakfast area is small so get there early if you want a seat. The breakfast choices are limited but the woman working the area keeps a close eye on everything and keeps it restocked. I would stay again as it's a good price (89.00 AAA discount rate) and location in Murphy.

    « Economical, Clean & good staff »

    The hotel was very clean and the staff did a very good job of taking care of my needs. The food availability was close and okay. I wish the hotel had a guest laundry because I hate to fly back home with dirty clothes.

    « Very nice-- with one exception! »

    A friend & I stayed here for 5 nights on a recent road trip. Overall we were pleased & surprised at how nice the place was, especially for a motel in its price range. Our room was well designed, very clean, & comfortable. The lobby was also very efficiently designed to be a combination check in/out/ information desk, business center, breakfast center, & comfortable seating area with a pretty little solarium & free local newspapers... all in a relatively small space without making anything seem cramped. A complimentary breakfast was served every morning in the lobby. The room had a clean medium-sized refrigerator with a freezer & a clean microwave. The room temperature could be regulated to a wide enough range to make any guest comfortable-- an attribute I've unfortunately found lacking in many other motels. Housekeeping service was very good. The location was close to several good restaurants (as well as fast food). The staff was very friendly & helpful. If we had the chance to stay again, we'd request a ground floor room, as the second floor was a walk up with no elevator for luggage. But our one & only real complaint was the "bathroom tissue" (T.P.)!!! It was that cheap, one-ply stuff that morphs into a trillion shreds instantly upon contact with any moisture, & wants to leave more of itself behind than is removed. We would've gladly traded a few less bottles of shampoo, body lotion, or bars of soap for a little better quality product in this category.... This is NOT the place to save a few pennies!!!

    « Perfect stop for us! »

    We were tired, so we decided to stop in Murphy--around 9pm on a Sunday night. Courtney at the front desk checked us in and gave us a great recommendation AND directions to a terrific local restaurant that would still be serving dinner. The room was beautiful, sparkling clean and very comfortable. We will definitely stay again on our next trip to the mountains!

    « Murphy Weekend »

    Great hotel. Good value and location with easy access to the Nantahala area and Blue Ridge. The hotel is clean, appears recently renovated and the staff is friendly. This is one of the best dog friendly options in the area.

    « Our favorite Murphy hotel »

    We have stayed at this Best Western on all 3 of our last visits to Murphy. The great staff and service is why we keep coming back. The rooms are clean and neat our experiences have been very pleasant. Looks a little dated from outside but the room have modern conveniences, WIFI, flat screen TV refreshed bathrooms and dressing areas. This hotel is convenient to Murphy proper with restaurants in any direction and the casino is only a mile or so away. Scenic location with ample parking. No elevator so keep that in mind if you are mobility impaired. Good continental breakfast offering and coffee 24/7. Quiet location.

    « No Room at Casino »

    We were planning on a trip to Gatlinburg for the evening but got off to a late start so decided to go to the casino. There were no rooms at the casino so went across the street to the Hampton Inn and that was also booked. Went next door to the Best Western of Murphy and were very happy that we did. The price was good, service was excellent, and the newly remodeled room was very nice. Extremely clean room, very comfortable bed, microwave, mini fridge, internet worked great. Can't comment on the continental breakfast as we did not get up in time for it. Also nice that they have a 12:00 late checkout option. Will definitely stay here again.

    « Nice Hotel »

    This was a great stay the room was clean, the staff was helpful, the location was great, the bed was comfortable, and the price was affordable. When i go that way again this is where i will be staying

    « Best Western: Best Service, Room, Breakfast, People! »

    Highly recommend! From the reservation over the phone with Barbara to checking out with Barbara and Felicia: Top notch service, quality, satisfaction! Staff is friendly, informative, funny, professional. Room extra clean, plenty of everything. Breakfast, Wow! For a small mountain hotel -- for any hotel with "Continental" breakfast! -- truly fresh fruit selection, pancakes with six toppings, nine bread/bagel/muffin choices with toppings from p-nut butter to cream cheese, wide variety of teas, cereals, fruit bars, PLUS micro breakfast entrees! The lounge space utilized wisely and comfortably with variety of seating areas. Recommend highly! Always will stay here! Only thing I would suggest/change: pillows are slightly overstuffed and not malleable.

    « Excellent nicely decorated dog friendly room »

    Service was top notch.friendly front desk clerk* Breakfast was great, fresh made pancakes were very good The bed was soooo comfy, I will definitely stay there when i go back to murphy. Very nice area to walk the dog with supplied poopie bags so it too was very clean.the place was spotless and evrything worked,very nice television frig and microwave in room so no complaints from me??

    « Wonderful experience »

    We stayed here during my husband's birthday and he wanted to come up and see the new casino in Murphy. We chose the Best Western because it looked nice. Nice does not describe it - the rooms are clean and roomy. Everything was in order. The front desk ladies were super and the lady who cleaned the room was so sweet. It was a fantastic experience and I would encourage anyone to stay here

    « Great stay »

    Second stay at this Best Western. Different staff than last time but still friendly and helpful.... knowledgeable of area. Clean and quiet room.... didn't do the breakfast since many alternatives available close by. I will stay here again when in the area. Some previous comments noted the age of the facility and maybe because I'm an old piece myself, the age is of less concern than friendly staff and clean room. The floors were clean as were the bed linens and bathroom walls. The white socks on my feet when the boots came off were still white when the boots went back on. Close to a busy 4 lane but there was no road noise in my room .

    « Best Western, Murphy, N.C. »

    In the small town of Murphy, NC in the Smokey Mountains, We found our stay at the Best Western very enjoyable. Our hotel was very clean, the room spacious and updated. Enough cannot be said about the courtesy of the management and staff, very helpful. I will stay here again.

    « Would not stay again »

    This is a old hotel that paint was put on to try to make new. The room smelled horrible and after complaining to front desk of the cigarette smoke, we were told it was a non-smoking room. Huh! The floors were dirty and the grout in the bathroom looked like it had a tinge of blood in it. Didn't even bother to take a shower due to mold on wall.

    « Excellent Room and Service. »

    Used it on new years eve because of my hectic schedule at the casino. Very accommodating and friendly and helpful staff. Even though it was for one night I would gladly use them again in the future if I see it neccessary

    « Visiting family »

    We had a great stay. It was an impromptu trip and they had rooms. The room was clean, spacious, and welcoming. The front desk ladies were great, they were very welcoming and helpful. Check in was pleasant. No complaints. We got 2 rooms and they put us in adjoining rooms.

    « good place »

    we where very satisfied with this place. We where in a good location and very close to everything. The staff was very nice and helped with all we ask for. I would recommend this place to anyone. We had a nice room and very clean.

    « Good/clean/decent priced »

    It was a nice enough hotel. The beds were comfy, I was pleasantly ssurprised. Seemed like very little TV channels. Room has a safe in it if you need it. Very close to Casino,I wouldn't suggest walking but you could I guess. Continental breakfast they do have one. Pancakes... Juice... Breads.. Cereal. I would stay here again if in the area.

    « Inexpensive, clean and friendly »

    I travel to Murphy on business fairly often and have never been disappointed in the Best Western. It isn't luxurious by any stretch of the imagination, but it's clean, convenient and the staff is wonderfully friendly and accommodating. I always try to stay there.

    « Nice little town »

    Small town, has everything you would need. The only disappointing thing was there was a parade the morning we checked out. Neither the check in or out staff mentioned it. It would have been fun going to a small town parade. The hotel is only 4 minutes from the casino. Our bed was nice, the pillows were comfortable. The shower head was good. Lots of hot water. Not a lot of tv channels. It has a refrigerator and a microwave. The breakfast had pancakes. Would stay there again.

    « Best Western of Murphy, Murphy North Carolina »

    Gave my reserved limited access non smoking room away and lied about it , saying I had no reservation until I showed the manager my comp number . She then said she gave my room away. She then tried to make us stay at Days Inn . This was six o'clock in the evening . Treated us very rude . Will not be back there ever . The room she gave us stunk like smokers smoke . I am a disable Marine Vet , and have to clime steps makes it very hard when you have artificial parts in your legs . This is not the great Quality of Best Western that I have always received when staying with Best Western . This Manager also said that was the manager of Days Inn a tried to make us stay at Days Inn . I told her that if I wanted to stay at Days Inn I would have reserved a room there . The manager was very rude and should learn how to talk to people .

    « Murphy, NC »

    I have stayed at this hotel several times over the years. It is clean, reasonably priced, close to the highway, but not noisy. Near some businesses I might want to shop at, or eat dinner at, before retiring. Staff is friendly and efficient.

    « Could be Better »

    We had just spent a night at a lovely, newer pet friendly LaQuinta in Macon Georgia, and the next night we were headed to Murphy, NC for 3 nights. The Best Western Murphy was one of two pet friendly choices in the area. Almost the same price per night as the LaQuinta, and a world of difference. The LaQuinta room for the same money was a 2 room King Suite, nearly new, and very very nice. The Best Western Murphy for the same money has very old decor, including the lobby/breakfast room/registration area. But, maybe this is typical of a small country town compared to a small city like Macon. The Best Western was pretty clean, and the service was very good, but I'd only stay there again because it's one of the only 2 pet friendly hotels in the area where my sister lives.

    « Clean Rooms »

    We were just staying over night. We will go back. The room was clean and the beds were very comfortable. The staff was excellent. They offer free breakfast with stay, it is continental, so be prepared. Great central location.

    « Very Likeable »

    My stay was fair and pleasant soo close to everything. Around the corner from the casino.....the reason I stayed here will come again. Hope my review is very helpful to someone because a lot of times there is not enough for people to say to let you know the answer to some of your questions.

    « A Good Basic Place »

    The staff was wonderful at check in. The room was clean and had everything I needed. I rarely stay at hotels with outside walkways rather than interior corridors as a safety issue. However, I had a last minute business trip and had no choice. I was pleasantly surprised. The outside has an old school 1970's motel sorta of look but my room was updated, nicely furnished, and I felt quite safe.

    « Okay place to stay »

    I recently stayed at the Best Western due to its close proximity to the Casino. It was okay overall. The room was a little damp and musty smelling and the cable on the television had very limited channels, but the bathroom was very clean which was a plus. The staff was very nice and friendly. The breakfast choices were pretty much toast, pastries, yogurt, and flap jacks; however, there is a Bojangles across the street if you want to eat meat. Overall it's an okay hotel to spend a night but would not have wanted to stay multiple nights here.

    Went to Murphy to visit the new Casino there. Stayed at the Best Western Murphy NC. The staff was very helpful. Told us great places to eat & see. The hotel was very clean. Had asked for a room on the first floor, due to the fax that I could not climb stairs, due to getting over surgery. I was told they couldnt promise me for sure. When I check in I told them that I had asked for a room on the first floor. SHe told me that I had a room on the first floor.

    I have no complaints about this Best Western at all. The room was clean and the bed was nicely made (actually better than a Hilton I stayed in once). A hotel is only as good as its staff and you can tell this one has that! Their breakfast area was spotless and sunny! Would come here again!

    This is a very nice place to stay. The rooms are very clean and the beds are always nice and comfy. It is also very close to many nice restaurants and you must go downtown if you have time. There is a great Irish Pub with great food and very relaxed atmosphere. The clerks are always so nice and helpful while checking in and out. They also give you cloths to clean your motorcycle in the mornings before you leave.

    Facility needs updating. Other Best Western locations present better breakfast options. Had trouble with the toilet not flushing properly and the sink not draining quickly. No guest laundry on site. Staff was friendly and helpful which made the stay tolerable. Location to things to do and places to eat was very good.

    « Only one problem »

    A few red ants one day crawling on desk. Otherwise everything topnotch. Staff very helpful and friendly. Early check-in was no problem and express checkout great since I left at 5:30 AM for the long ride back to Florida.

    Super clean, priced right and the staff is great! Right at the door of the Smokey Mountains. Recommended local dining spots and provided local directions and tourist information. Our entire group enjoys th hospitality of the staff.

    « Great place to stay! »

    Our group of 18 motorcycle riders were greeted by Barbara at the front desk. She had our reservations ready, and quickly got us all checked in. She had hot coffee ready for us at check-in. Our rooms were nice and clean, and we were able to gather together with our friends to socialize. This hotel is located close to the Georgia state line, which makes it a great place to stay.

    We stayed here on our winery trip. This hotel is newer, the bed is comfortable, the room was spacious and the area was safe. The check in clerk was very helpful in recommended Doyle's for dinner. It was great.
