Recent guest reviews

The hotel was alright for the money. It wasn't a super fancy place but it was clean, and we'll taken care of.

We went to go swimming in the pool was so nasty we couldnt swim. On the beds they dont use regular sheets that go under the mattress its just a thin cloth thrown over the bed. The next morning i woke up and was brushing my hair when i saw a roach come out the mirror. The ice machines outside dont even work. Went to purchase a coke out the machine they were all sold out. I wouldnt suggest this motel to anyone. Stay away!

I had nightmares that I was going to get eaten by bed bugs.

Cheap hotel, but literally the worst room, bathroom, and beds I have ever had at a hotel. Keeping that in mind, we paid 50/ night and its close to downtown Knoxville so I have no complaints, but do be prepared for the stereotypical 'nightmare hotel': carpet was coming off the floor, the bathroom door was written all over with messages, the curtain had a knife slash through the inside portion, and the headboards had messages carved into them, to name a few memorable things.

My family and I came up for the UT-Auburn game, got a room here solely because of price and found out that price does not always equal value. This apparently is the place north of Knoxville that if you want to get a place with 100 of your closest friends and party all night (in the room as well as outside), you get a room. The doors and walls are paper thin, so you can hear every truck going by on I-75 hitting its Jake Brakes as well as every redneck flooring it to get on the interstate. I thought the proximity to I-75 was a benefit, but the noise factor is a detriment. Spend the extra money and get a quiet place where the doors are on the inside of the hotel and people that party all night are kicked out. Many of the items in our room were in disrepair. The heater-air conditioner had no distinguishable knobs, the inside of the bathroom door had no knob (if someone were to go in alone and shut the door all the way, you would not be able to get out!), and the tub had stains all over it. Also, most of the rooms are smoking. When we checked in, there were no non-smoking rooms available. Our clothes had that nice smell on them upon our return home. Avoid this place if you have other options.

The lamp had a burned out bulb & I had to go down and get a new one. The couch, though fairly comfortable was dirty in the cracks and trash between and underneath the cushions. Writing on the back of the bathroom door. Shower curtain was nasty. I guess u get what pay for

We booked for three nights.I had to call front desk shortly after arrival.Had very little toliet tissue and not one wash cloth.I was told I could walk back down to the office to pick up the toilet tissue and to call back in an hour for wash cloths.Started itching when I got in the bed.Will not be staying there again.Oh, let's not forget the last night of no sleep due to the drunks in the next room.

best stay i have ever had . everything was perfect . nice clean and spacious rooms.

Went to the cheapest hotel I could find while attending the DI Global finals at University of Tennessee. Expected only to sleep there.You get what you pay for. There was NO housekeeping. After returning the first day, the bed was unmade, trash still in room and all they left were 2 more scratchy towels! Hotel is located at a major intersection of highways and very noisy - heard large trucks and motorcycles ramping up loudly to get on highway. Cut my stay short and went to the Hilton!

Do not choose this motel from Orbitz. Orbitz' price was 42 plus tax; the real billboard rate was 34 plus tax. Of course, Orbitz made 8 bucks (almost 25%)off of my stupid decision. No one to blame but myself; however, that will not happen again to me. No more Orbitz for overnight reservations.
