Once again the Donoho chefs and kitchen staff did not disappoint! The food was superb, and the meatloaf was the best I've ever had. You can't beat the old world ambience of the vintage dining room and the old world hospitality of the whole staff....More
Just returned from the Donoho where the rooms were clean, comfortable, and adorable--each with different decor theme, but all still keeping with the historical period of 1914 or so. It's hard to believe this is the same hotel I stayed at in 2009 when it...More
Staff was gracious, hospitable & flexible! Food was really extraordinary. This place is charming, old fashioned, comfortable, quiet & clean. Don't go expecting a modern hotel with phone & TV in rooms, they don't have it, and we didn't miss it. My nine year-old son...More

If you read this article, under 'History' it states: "A hotel owner named Whitley built the first hotel on what is now the Donoho property sometime in the 1890s. Around 1901, the first hotel known as the "Donoho" was built on the property by Whitley's son-in-law, Squire Donoho (1863–1908), whose family had operated a general store in Red Boiling Springs since the 1880s. After Squire Donoho's death, the hotel and property passed into the hands of Whitley's daughter, Tennie, and her husband, Brady Chitwood (1875–1958). The first Donoho Hotel burned in 1915, and the following year the Chitwoods built the present hotel as a replacement."
