Hotel Overview

Welcome to Best Western Cades Cove Inn!

We’re just a short drive from the Great Smoky Mountain National Park and the exciting Dollywood Theme Park® on the peaceful side of the Smoky Mountains.

This Townsend, Tennessee hotel is also close to the Tail of the Dragon at Deals Gap®, a must stop for motorcyclists. In a quiet, serene area, guests at our Townsend hotel can enjoy getting away from it all but still be near the conveniences of the city and the area’s best attractions. We’re just 15 minutes away from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, yet away from the hustle and bustle of those popular towns.

At the Best Western Cades Cove Inn, guests are treated to the best in southern hospitality. Cades Cove is in the region, and that’s a big reason why many guests are looking for Townsend, TN hotels. Here, you’re more than just a guest. You’re treated like family, and each staff member’s top priority is making you as comfortable as possible.

Get away from everything, enjoy the scenery and relax at our outdoor pool complete with a nine-foot waterslide. With a free, full hot breakfast, free high-speed Internet access, and guest rooms that offer king beds and other upgraded amenities, such as a spa tub and fireplace available in select rooms, guests can enjoy a quiet getaway.

Most of our Townsend hotel guests are in the region to visit the stunning Great Smoky Mountain National Park or Dollywood®. However, since we’re only 20 miles away from Pigeon Forge and a short distance from Gatlinburg, antique shoppers and those looking for the best in southern dining also stay with us. Whether you’re here for an adventure, to enjoy Mother Nature or to tour some of the best restaurants in the south, you’ve come to the right place.

Enjoy your quiet room at Best Western Cades Cove Inn and book today!
