{This inn has all the amenities you need for a comfortable stay. The room was spotlessly clean and had all the comforts of home, TV, microwave, refrigerator, complete bathroom, table and chairs, couch, and the bed was very comfortable. This family owned Inn continues the pride and friendliness that we witnessed 44 years ago on our honeymoon. To the owners, front desk clerks, a d housekeeping staff we say THANK YOU! And a special thanks to Brandy!

{Very clean comfortable rooms. Property is well kept and in good repair. Staff is friendly. Beautiful location, quiet and peaceful. Loved the feel of the motor lodge when the travel by car was at its peak. Will definitely stay there again and recommend it to others.

{The Talley Ho Inn is our go-to choice for a hotel when staying in Townsend. Always clean and the staff is very friendly and knowledgeable about the area. Very close to an entrance to the GSMNP.

{Beautiful, very well taken care of, quiet place to stay! The bed was extremely comfortable and there was a convenient mini fridge and microwave in the room as well. Really friendly, wonderful staff. Townsend also has a very nice walking/running/biking trail that goes right in front of the Talley Ho and it’s a lovely place to get some exercise!

{We brought friends this visit to Townsend. We've been coming to the Talley Ho for many years and the owners are 3rd generation family. They work so hard to keep the Inn updated and pristine. We used the Fox Den cabin and also a motel room that has been recently refurbished. Both were perfect. The property is beautiful. Surrounded by meadows. ... We've booked a big cabin for family the end of this month! This is a gem. Prices vary by your accommodation needs, small to large, and are resonable. We love the Talley Ho!

Group gathered in cottage and yard. Kitchen had adequate supplies for preparing meals for 15 or so. Will be back for another reunion in Nov and again next April. Thank you, Talley Ho In!!
