great stay for the price

My experience was good experience. the owner was very nice and responsive. the rooms were not exceptional but they were very clean and comfortable. the only bad thing i could say was the breakfast needed some work. I went to get coffee and there was residue floating in the cup. The breakfast was not a good selection. We ended up going to Cracker Barrell which happens to be across the road.

Leaves a lot to be desired

There was no record of our pre-paid reservation when we checked in. "Free WiFi" signal was so weak it could only be used in the main lobby. Continental breakfast was sparse and seemed to be a last minute thought. Overall, room was OK but noisy and amenities were less than average. Could not tell me why I had a paid confirmation from booking source but motel had no record; I may end up paying twice!!

room from ?

me and my daughters stopped there friday morning coming back from Pigeon Forge where there were no rooms anywhere for miles around...the night clerk gave us this room and it had to be a room for other activities if you know what I mean......the pillows were soiled....the lampshade was soiled.....it stunk...it needed condemned...I immediately went back and got my money back....which he quietly did and did not look up at me....room 136...which was around the back...hidden away under a stairwell.....creepy....nasty...room...the lesson here is ask to see a room before you rent one...

I expected more from a 3 star...

bathroom vanity hanging 1/4" off wall, pillow cases very soft because they must have been in use since the 1960s!

Quick night stop

Very easy to find and close to the interstate for a quick stop after a long drive. I personally cant stand staying in a nonsmoking room that smells like smoke, that's the biggest negative I have. Other then that nothing special but a good stay

First time staying in TN

This place is not clean and they did not even provide enough soap and shampoo... Breakfast is almost only bagel, juice and coffee... We were still starving after eating breakfast... Try to avoid it next time...
