Stopped here for one night last month on our way to Chattanooga and I'm sure glad we did!! Check in staff was very friendly and welcoming. When I told her we had been on a motorcycle all day and were looking for a good place to eat within walking distance she told us the only place was just next door, The Smokehouse Restaurant. On top of that, because it was Saturday they were having a live band with no cover charge.
Our room, although rather dated, was very comfortable and clean!!!
We walked down to the restaurant around 6:00 to find just a few people inside. It was like walking back in time!! The place was huge!! Part country store, part country museum.
The restaurant part is separated into two different areas. One side is the regular restaurant part and the other side is where the live music is. We chose the music side and were seated immediately. The room was full of Country Music nostalgia such as old pics and posters. Small candles were being lighted aroung the room and it was very cozy.
The entertainment was a local kid named Jessie Black who could sing anything!!
We drank a few beers and ordered cheeseburgers. Just as they arrived a storm came through and knocked the power out!! Thank goodness for all those candles!! We ate our burgers by candlelight and the next band that came on just went accoustic.
Had the breakfast buffet the next morning and it was great!! We will definitely stay here again!!
