I've stayed at this hotel many times traveling from WV to GA. The owners are very friendly and always helpful. There are soda and snack machines. The pool has never been working since I've stayed here, drained and gated shut, but a pool isn't important to me. The rooms are clean and bug free. Never had a problem with any... More

The location is great for the I-75 traveler. The front desk staff is friendly and accommodating. Room was exactly what was needed. I hit this going south from Michigan to Florida in early May. The value was so good that I sought this hotel out on my return trip. Just as nice the second time around. Save money, sleep well.... More

On our drive from Chicago to New Orleans we stayed in Athens TN for a couple of nights to visit a friend who is attending college in Athens. As a family of 5, we needed an affordable, comfortable place to stay! Motel 6 was great for us as we were able to secure two interconnecting rooms for about $90. Motel... More

We have been here for almost 4 nights. Room was clean upon check in and staff is friendly. Staff makes sure we have v what we need daily. Pet Friendly is a big deal for us. We have 2 dogs and it's no problem with them being here in the motel with us. Reasonable rates. Only issue is the beds... More

Stayed on a Friday and Saturday night while attending the UGA-Tn. football game in Knoxville. Location is convenient to Neyland stadium if you are coming from the South and do not want to stay in Knoxville. It took an hour to get to the stadium from the hotel. We had an upstairs room with two double beds. Rate was less... More

We were on our way to Columbus, Ohio from Florida and stopped at this motel in Athens, TN. Nice looking on outside but inside was rough and worn. Price was right and we were very tired of driving so we stayed here. Bed was hard but size of room was good with a nice big shower and bathroom. It also... More

Staff was super friendly, very clean motel!!! Ice machine worked and was not a mile away. In the morning they made coffee and coffee that meant my picky husband's seal of approval. Great value for the price. Could not ask for a more helpful staff!! If in the area again we will stay there!!

#1 staff was very friendly. We stayed here because we were traveling with our small dog (they were pet friendly). Got room cards that didn't work with the side door (I think the card reader on the door was broken). Room wasn't the cleanest, burn holes in the bedspread and carpet of our (non-smoking room). Sheets and such seemed clean,... More

As anyone who uses Motel 6s on a regular basis can tell you, they are NOT all created equal. Because I travel with my dog, and because I resent having to pay extra for her, and because Motel 6 does not have pet charges, I stay at them pretty frequently. I almost always check TripAdvisor first, and if the reviews... More
