Basic services is what I look for in many hotels, and since I was out all day taking photographs, I don't want to pay ridiculous prices. Rooms were clean, large and easy to get to. Our cabin was a larger building and had a big kitchen and multiple rooms - even though there were only 4 of us - and...

We had a nice view, the room was clean and it was next door to a restaurant so the location was very good. My husband was well satisfied with it and said he would like to stay there again. We usually camp at Cades Cove so since we weren't camping it was good to be this close.

It does not get 5 stars because it is a 5 star hotel but it is a 5 star in its class. Rooms were a good size and we had a fireplace in ours. The view from our back door was beautiful. There was not a restaurant on site. I asked about pets and they are considered. It was a...

Well appointed, comfortable room just a couple miles from the park entrance on the "quiet side" of the Smokies. Diligent housekeeping staff. Restaurant next door is closed in the off season but there are others nearby. Hotel staff are real familiar with the park and helpful about what's in the area. Hotel has a large conference room.

Love, love, love. The bath has the original 64 year old tile!!! Hardwood floors great with our dog. Mike was great, friendly and helpful. He loved our dog too!! When we checked in we were given a doggy pail, dog essentials-just in case. Reasonable rates, clean rooms, we will definately stay again.

I would have given 3.5 stars of possible. Tally Ho Inn is above average. It isn't fancy but it is clean, quaint and conveniently located. The walking path allows you to go wherever you like in Townsend. We visited while the Carriage House Restaurant was closed but walked to the Riverview Restaurant for dinners. It was the off-season. This is...

This is my 2 or 3rd time at this Inn. My room was just a simple queen with no amenities. (no microwave, hot pot, or refrig). Which was fine. They do serve coffee in the front lobby but wish they would have had hot water too. The room was clean. I slept well. You can get other types of rooms...

Talley Ho Inn is the perfect setting for a Smoky Mountain getaway! It is a lovely hotel, comfortable and up to date! It is only a mile from Cade's Cove. Also a short drive from Smoky Mountain Parkway, which is a beautiful drive and views you can't believe! The restaurant next door was excellent. Don't bother going to any of...

The front desk staff was so friendly. Robin was very helpful with a last minute trip booking. Room was very clean. We stayed in 158 and those rooms seemed to be updated. We will definitely stay here again when we come back next year.

This was our second year to have a family reunion at the Talley Ho Inn and we have booked for a 3rd in 2017. Accommodations for a family reunion are the best. The cottage is a perfect gathering place for all and the kitchen is stocked adequately for group of 15-20. Firewood is provided for the fireplace. The weather was...
