From the minute we arrived at the Way Inn, we knew this was going to be a special vacation. Ms. Melissa was attentive and friendly and the hotel is beautiful. The room was very nicely sized and very clean. I'll love to go again with my family and friends. Thanks Way Inn from the Carter Family

I'm a glass half full type of person, but I have nothing nice to say about this place. I reserved for three nights over the phone, sight unseen and was not happy with how it looked when we finally got there, but the owner made it very clear I was paying for all three nights whether I stayed or not!...

I stayed here for a long week-end with my 12 year old son. I am so glad that I found this place, as it was much better than a chain hotel in a city setting. The rooms were very large, & clean. The owners were extremely friendly, and gave us tips for local places to see. There's a country store... More

It has a 1960's motel layout, brick on the outside, painted cinder block inside, but it is clean with large rooms and a homey feel inside. The bed is big and the couch new. There is a coffee table and tall entertainment center though the tv is small and it's Dish so no Walking Dead. You still get more channels... More
