Welcome To THE Meadowlark Motel

Best of the Motels in Maggie Valley NC

Imagine a place evocative of motor courts of the past, yet modern and vibrant with a “Chic Appalachian” feel. A place for adventure and for relaxation.  Imagine a place where you can fish in a mountain heritage trout stream, grill the catch on a fire, and eat accompanied by fine wine or craft beers. Imagine a place with old-time music and world cultural sounds. There is no other place like the Meadowlark Motel in Maggie Valley, NC or the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. We are the starting point for all the adventures and serenity the mountains have to offer.

With Comforts of the Past & Present

Family owned and operated for four decades, at the Meadowlark Motel you’ll enjoy a perfect pairing of modern convenience and traditional comfort in a unique blend of the past and present. We combine a retro aesthetic with modern design twists.

We offer contemporary lodging in a traditional Smoky Mountain environment, with retro inspired accommodations, live music, outdoor fire pits, fishing, family games, and the BackPorch Pavilion reminiscent of old-time mountain dance halls and barbecue joints.

What People Say!

We stayed in room 128 and was very well impressed on the staff, anything we needed they got right away. The owners was amazingly wonderful. So it’s well worth what they charge and we will be back. So awesome.

An amazing hotel. Locally owned and operated, the staff is so warm and friendly. The rooms are rustic and super clean and the price is very reasonable! Highly recommend this place if you are visiting Maggie Valley!

My family and I would like to thank Rodger and Donne McElroy for their hospitality. Our cars got snowed in up the mountain and needed a place to stay for the evening. The following day we were stranded while the roads were getting plowed and salted. We didn’t get our cars till 5 that evening. When we went to return our keys we offered to pay for the day and they refused our money. They were just happy to help. Thanks to them and a few other helpful people y’all turned a potentially horrible situation into a pleasant one. Thanks again to you and your friendly staff.
