I stayed here last January on my way home from Florida. The room was a bit small but clean, no smells etc...I had 2 dogs with me and felt safe taking them for several walks. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I would have liked parking closer to the doors.

This hotel is right behind Burger King and very close to I-75. It appears to be either new-ish or recently updated. Everything in my room was in working order and very clean. There are no bathroom amenities other than soap, but the tub/shower was large. There is no clock in the room, but in today's tech world that's minor. There's... More

Stayed here for a week while apartment searching in Cleveland for business. I really liked the staff here. They were very attentive and wanted everyone's stay to be good. There is no breakfast at this hotel but there is a Burger King, Waffle House etc nearby.

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

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

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
