Night stay

I stayed here for the night on the way home from a trip. The hotel was clean and nice. I had no problem with anything here.

No Complaints

The hotel was clean, comfortable and quiet, staff friendly, breakfast okay. Only had cereal, coffee, juice, waffles, some fruit and danishes. Good value for the money. I would recommend an evening at the hotel - good location to restaurants.

Pleasantly surprised

I feel that my bad experience at a Howard Johnsons years ago in Washington DC is what kept me from trying it again, till now. I am pleasantly surprised that it turned out really well. Good pricing and good location and the staff nice enough, breakfast continental but nice enough. Room was just right, only thing they forgot is to pick up dirty towels, but did deliver clean ones each day. They also did provide in room microwave and fridge so that was helpful. I have to ding them because the free wi fi was so intermittent as to be not really useful. Other than that, was pleasant and would definitely stay there again.

Unclean

The assistant manager was terrific, very courteous and professional. That was the best feature this hotel had to offer. The luggage trolleys were filthy, as if they has spent a season outside. The carpet throughout was very dirty as well. I suspect construction workers are never told to remove their boots. I would never allow my carpets to get this bad. There was a large cardboard box in the 2nd floor hallway, tossed there by someone and cleaned up by no one. The room was dingy. My wife looked for the closet and there was none. The clothes rack is bolted to the wall. The bathroom was very small and the toilet paper roll was almost empty. The floor molding was fitted by an amateur and much of the grout was missing in the tiles. The place was built poorly. The sheets had not been changed; they had hair on them. The room did have a frig and microwave, stacked on top of each other like in a dorm room. When I asked for a room change, the assistant manager was very kind and cooperative, but the trip to the 2nd room was an experience in itself because of the nasty carpet. It was a $33 room for three times the price.

Just a Quick Trip

It was a quick in-and-out, arriving late and departing early. The staff greeted me with kindness and efficiency. Access to the room was great. The ironing board was too small and a bit frustrating. The parking lot was crowded, with large trucks and trailers taking up multiple spaces. The bed was average, the pillows were fine, the water was warm, the coffee was tolerable. I didn't have time to eat breakfast, but it appeared that their offerings were more than adequate.

Dining tip: Short drive from hotel

There were diners and shops just around the corner. One could walk, I suppose; but as it was raining, I preferred to drive.

Mediocre. Wouldn't stay again.

The best thing about this hotel is how it looks from the outside. It has curb appeal and the foyer is attractive but beyond that our experience went downhill. We had a standard room with two double beds and it was the most cramped hotel room I've ever been in, the mini fridge was literally touching one of the beds. You could barely turn around in the bathroom, you had about as much room as a stall in a restroom plus the tub. The sink and vanity were in the main room right by the door. No privacy. The room was not kept up well maintenance wise with paintings, scuffs, cracks and chips, etc. The absolute worst part of everything was the bed, it was the hardest mattress I've ever encountered in a hotel, their websites claim all the rooms have a pillowtop mattress...not mine! I slept on a rock. I literally considered moving to the floor, at least there was some padding. The only good thing I have to say about this place is the location of the Jackson, TN hotel is nice, right off the highway and there is a lot of retail and restaurants to choose from. Overall, I'd like to stay at that exit again but I will spend a little more and stay elsewhere.
