Pros: Location
Cons: The mattress could be better. The room could be more roomy.
Location: Close to The Great Smoky Mountains National Park and the Smoky Moutain Railroad.
The room was nice and clean, but small. The breakfast was above average. Over all not bad for a stop over.

Awesome stay and staff. The only improvement needed is the eggs for breakfast (looked like it's for astronauts going to space) and the sausage needed to be cooked a little more. Loved the stay though.
