I stayed here last year, and the property was excellent. I don't know if it was sold or not, but it has gone downhill fast; poor wifi connection(in my case , none), hair dryer replaced as it didn't work, and it didn't work either although it did when he replaced it. I could have just overlooked all this as it...

Economy hotel - cheap and clean close to everything. The walls are paper thin. It was very noisy. Continental breakfast wasn't much. Staff was very friendly. The stadium shuttle was pricey opted for Uber.

It's a budget hotel, so expectations were not high. We just needed a quick overnight stay & hoped for a clean, odor-free room. It was "ok" clean, but there was a strong chemical smell (bug spray, maybe?). I can't complain too much, after all it's an Econo Lodge. It was super easy accessible to the interstate & plenty of food...

This place need to shut down. They have mold growing in the room and the roof leaking, the health department needs to come out immediately and closed this business down. I would not even give them a 1 star...I would give a -5 star if i could and the manager is terrible his name is Mike Petal and very rude,...

When traveling for business we are look for hotels that are clean, comfortable and a good value money-wise. This hotel filled those requirements just fine. The beds were comfortable and we felt secure in the location. It was a good value.

The room was basic but survivable. It had a faint odor of bug spray -- good sign or bad? The advertised WiFi, if it existed, certainly did not reach my room -- so no Internet connection. I found the evening desk agent extraordinarily rude and unhelpful. The "continental breakfast" offered was laughable, There are many other options at this location,...

I stayed here for a 2 night business trip. I wasn't expecting but was quite surprised. Location is great. Several restaurants and fast food places in walking distance. The rooms themselves were not bad at all. They were clean! The staff up front was very friendly throughout. My room faced the interstate, but was not affected by the noise as...

We just needed a hotel to sleep at one night because we will be at the dorm at UTK for my daughters orientation. Was very surprised how nice the room was for the cheap price. Parked right by our door, beds were very comfy and room was extremely clean! I plan on staying here for now on when I come...

I must say this lodge had better beds/accommodations for it's price and location than the other place up the street. We got a non-smoking room and it was actually "non-smoking". The bed, bath, sink, room in it's entirety was clean. Plenty of towels, soap, and TP. Refrigerator, microwave, TV, and blow dryer all worked fine. There was a USB outlet...

This was our one budget stop before staying in more expensive places in Savannah and St. Augustine. We knew it wouldn't be the lap of luxury and it wasn't. But at a $41 pre-tax rate it was fine. The room was mostly clean, although wear and tear in the bathroom tub basin, along with numerous wall and ceiling cracks throughout...
