    While it's likely the smallest property in Townsend, TN, it would seem to be the best combination of amenities and value. It's rare to find rooms under $100 any more and the affable owner throws in a nice welcome basket of goodies to include some...More

    Our room was at west end of the property, just several rooms away from the pool. My wife and I didn't use the pool. So i'm unable to give a good answer! The rooms are very nicely kept and comfortable!
