"...The Terrace was clean and comfortable, the staff was friendly and the location was excellent. The common areas were comfortable, especially the rocking chairs that overlook the lake..." - Ie782015, Tripadvisor Review, September 2020
"...We stayed at The Terrace because it had a convenient location not far from the visitor center of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. This was a good base to stay at while we explored the area, including the Great Smoky Mountains, Asheville, and the Blue Ridge Parkway. The hotel and our room was incredibly clean..." - salsalisa, Tripadvisor Review, April 2021
