I will keep it simple. We planned on stopping on our way home from florida to kentucky. Found this place online and was hoping it was a safe and clean place. Well let me just say exit 351 off hwy 65n is a great place stop. Area is very nice. The staff was very nice when I walked in and... More

I stayed at this property while I was traveling. It was listed as a 3-star property and received high ratings on TripAdvisor so I stopped there for the night. This is not a 3-star property. It is in the same class as Motel 6 and Super 8. Cramped breakfast area, older rooms. There was no 'do not disturb' sign I... More

Dear Valued Guest, On behalf of our entire team, I would like to apologize for not meeting your expectations. We did have a new housekeeper assigned to your room, and a "Do Not Disturb" sign should have been provided in the room. We hope that you will give us another chance to provide the quality of service that you deserve.... More

So this hotel is older and could use some updates, but it is still nice and deserves a look. Many of the surrounding hotels are $100+ and we were able to book for less. The room was clean and spacious enough (including a couch) with a king. The bed was comfy and the room included a microwave and fridge. The... More

This was not the first time I've used this hotel. It has been updated but not enough. It was clean enough and affordable enough that I would stay again but the rooms are showing some wear. The hotel staff was very friendly and we were told it was due for another update in the near future.

Room was clean, bed comfortable, many restaurants in the area. Easy in & out. Stop over on our way to the smoky mountains. Able to walk to several restaurants in the area. At the cross road of 65 & 72. Staff checked on us after we checked in to see if we needed anything.

I was traveling with my daughter and needed a place to stay for a few nights. The beds were comfortable and the room was very clean. There is a pool in the back that isn't big but it will keep young kids entertained. Lots of restaurants within a very short walking distance and the hotel offers a discount on several... More

We stayed here on July 4 in a pet-friendly room. It is an extra $20 for a dog, and you cannot book those rooms online which was annoying, but the gentleman on the phone was easy to work with. I couldn't tell the room was a pet-friendly room; it was really clean and there was no evidence of pets The... More

The hotel is conveniently located just off the interstate, and within easy walking distance of several restaurants. It offers parking outside one’s room for those on the ground floor, which makes unloading and loading much easier. From the layout, it is evident that it is an older facility. But it has been periodically renovated and well maintained. Our room was... More

It is an older hotel, clean, friendly & helpful staff, but ask Lynn for the combination to the door lock - takes more than the key you get! I didn't have the breakfast although it is served between 6-9am. I was here on business, worked all night, and slept through breakfast. Location is convenient to I-65 and to the main... More

If I were in Athens I would probably stay at the country heart Inn. Its just as clean as the best western and a lot cheaper on price. I paid a little over 200 bucks for a room with king bed at best western and the next night just down the street paid just a little over 40 bucks for... More
