We have been staying at this hotel for about 9 weeks now, on and off throughout our project. The front desk manager has been easy to work with and has offered great rates for an extended period of time. No, it's not a 5 star hotel, but we didn't expect it to be. The hotel wifi works fine and the... More

Spilled a little water and when I wiped it up with the rag of a towel it was filthy. Fake hardwood needs to be washed periodically, hello! Towels are not worthy of being rags, but they could second as a loofa if you forgot yours. Haven't slept on a totally worn out mattress and box springs lately? Here's your chance!... More

This is probably one of the best Motel 6's I have stayed at. The staff is friendly and keeps the place clean. It's very accessible to Interstate 75 and just about halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Enjoy!

Needed a place to just rest our heads on the way to Atlanta. It's an older motel but clean......gotta love the no carpet....we did! No frills but a good place to stop for a night's rest! Right off I 75 exit 49.

It is a no frills, budget motel. It was clean, exactly how it is advertised and affordable. We were in the area for rafting and going to the caves. It was perfect for that, close to both and perfect for retiring at the end of the night for sleeping. There is not a common area, if you do want to... More

Room and property were in good shape ... everything worked as it should. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only '-' is that no breakfast was offered, unlike most of the hotels in the area. Would recommend and stay again.
