Everything was great about the hotel and our stay, except that the room had a slight damp smell and the rug was slightly damp as if it had just been shampooed (but the was no chemical or cleaning scent). The shower head in the shower was amazing! We both really loved it, but noticed that the spray caused the bathroom to get really damp and the water got everywhere, despite how much we tried to keep the shower curtain closed against the shower walls. We suspect that the water spray is why the room stays so humid/damp. Otherwise, the room was nice, but I'm glad we were only there for 1 night. P.S. We did not alert hotel staff or ask to switch rooms because we arrived at 11 PM after a 5+ hour drive from Mississippi & had to be up early for a funeral the next day.

Quiet room. Plenty of places to eat within reasonable walking distance.

The hotel was nice and clean just felt it was a bit over priced

Excellent location, freeway close with many food options within just a few blocks. Clean, comfortable, typical hot breakfast - scrambled eggs, sausage, and lots of cold choices. Quick checkout, bill was under the door before 6 am.

My wife and I were attending a wedding and needed to stay the night. We had a great experience. The room was great and the staff was very pleasant. The breakfast was very good. All in all we had a great experience. We would highly recommend this hotel.

Over all my stay was great, the hotel was clean and the staff was friendly, I will use Orbits again!

The desk personell were very freindly and helpfull. It was the 4th of July weekend and they knew of the fire works in the area and gave directions to other local attractions and restaurants. If you have the time go see Sequoyah Caverns, well worth the drive.

This hotel was very comfortable and the furnishings in my room were nice--well above average. The bedding was of good quality and the bathroom was large and had very nice toiletries. I didn't care for the smell of smoke in the hallway but the friendliness of the staff and the nice breakfast more than made up for it. My room was a no smoking room and indeed I could detect no smell of smoke.
