Very pleased with stay plan on making this my regular motel when I'm in town

I had a very pleasent experience and woul reccomend to all my friends

The hotel room smelled horrible on our arrival. Like mildew and bleach. Everything seemed damp and there were brown smears on the wall. If it hadn't been for sheer necessity we would have left in a quick hurry .The bedding was clean upon inspection however.

Visiting family in the are so I didn't spend much time in the room. Clean and great for sleeping. Free coffee in the morning.

My two overnight stays allowed me to comfortably meet and participate in a day-long tour of Oak Ridge, TN. The hotel is located near I-75, acceptable to good restaurants, and auto service stations. It is also is near the tour bus pick-up and drop-off location. The room was adequate - clean, well made and supplied - but had nothing "extra." The staff was competent and friendly but not overly so. The hotel offered a minimum, continental breakfast from 6 to 8:30 AM but no attempt was made to serve vegetarians, diabetics or people with gluten allergies.

It was surprising clean. The bed wasn't bad either. Staff was very friendly. Bit noisy in the morning since it is on a major road. Overall, it was a good stay for the money.

It was a nice get-away. I didn't expect perfection with the low cost. I did get kind staff and a nice rest away from home. The bathroom was a little small, but I enjoyed my stay none-the-less.

Ordered a fold away bed and upon arrival, was charged 11.50 for it and it rattled all night long. The toilet ran all night off and on and there were bird nests all in the roof beams of the walkways and a lot of bird droppings all over the walkways with birds flying and chirping all around. Good location to eating and the interstate. People were nice enough. We got there late and left early so it served the purpose.

This was a nice stop on a long drive. Room was clean and quiet.

Pleasant stay on a long drive. The room was clean and quiet.

We chose this hotel because of price and closeness to Etowah and the Hiwassee train depot. Room was clean, quiet, no smoking smell, good selection of tv channels, good water pressure in shower, and comfortable beds. The only disappointment for me was the breakfast: watered down orange juice, toast and a couple of pastries. No hot or cold cereal, no eggs, etc. The staff was friendly on check-in and in giving directions. Plenty of places to eat nearby. I would recommend this motel.
