Great for the low price ($58 including taxes). Staff was very friendly. Our room and sheets were clean and beds were comfy. The bathroom was more than a bit outdated, but clean and everything worked. The breakfast was decent too but carb heavy with waffles, bagels, cereal, muffins, etc. I was a tad weary when we got there and the...

Our room was dark. So dark that it did not allow us to read. Numerous electrical plugs were plugged into a single outlet. I always put on a pair of white socks after showering. I remove my socks as I get into bed. The bottom of my socks were black. My wife then found that the bottom of her feet...

My family and I stayed here because we were in town visiting the The Lost Sea Adventure. The reviews I read on Trip Advisor were all great so I made a reservation. It was so nasty! Our blankets had cigarette burns in them, the mattress had stains all over it, the toilet leaked, all the decor was from at least...

We have stayed here several times before and it is still our favorite in the area. The rooms are clean and very quiet and have everything you need, hair dryer, micro/fridge, wifi, 2 double beds, lots of TV channels, free continental breakfast, free parking, 2 sinks [0ne in the bathroom and one just outside] which makes it very convenient for...

Well equipped room that appeared to have been recently updated. It was clean and comfortable, though loveseat sank down when sat on. Reserved easily online; check-in and check-out were courteous and fast. Room was quiet with nice view on back of hotel. Restaurants not far away, drug store and K-Mart on opposite corners from hotel.

Booked online thru TripAdvisor and the process was easy. We chose the property after reviews online and glad we did as we went to Sweetwater to visit the Craigshead Caverns, The Lost Sea, Fort Loudoun and the Skyway drive. It was Hubby's birthday and we were upgraded to a king bed room overlooking the pond with an outdoor space on...

I came down to Tennessee to volunteer at a medical clinic, so my peers and I stayed in this hotel because it was close by to the clinic and was a good price! Although outdated, my room was clean and the staff was very friendly. The woman at the front desk even called our rooms to ask if we needed...

The room was reserved on -line. Easy and friendly check-in. Nicely supprised room looking out the backside. This was quieter and overlooked their pond with ducks and geese - brought out our folding chairs and has a cup of coffee watching the geese. Some people were even fishing in the pond. The room had all of the ammineties needed(fridge, microwave,...

As other reviews have stated, this hotel is definitely dated in it's decor. We had reserved a non-smoking, king, pet friendly room, but when we arrived, it had already been given to someone else. They did discount the non-smoking, double, pet friendly room we ended up with instead, to accommodate us. I saw this in other reviews; we are in...

Friendly check in and check out staff and a convenient location made for an easy stay here. The motel is quite dated but decently maintained. Not the cleanest bathroom but not enough to really complain given the price. There isn't much around this area so this is a good bet.

Thank Deanne A
