My family and I decided to stay after a late night train ride. Hotel is definitely dated with pink and green walls, but the cleanliness is great. It is as clean or cleaner than most large hotel chains. Brand new carpets, comfortable bed, fridge, microwave, flat screen with satellite and free wifi. My only complaint is door has a single...

I stayed here in July, 2014. The room was straight out of the 1950's. Pink walls, with green trim. The bathroom featured orange tile and green trim, and none of it has been remodeled... ever. There was no ventilation in the bathroom, and the window wouldn't open. The air conditioner (with a broken front panel) ran wide open the whole... More

Bed was a torture chamber, you could see the spring indentations on the sheets, room old and run down, bathroom no space to put ANYTHING, air conditioner sounds like its dying of lung disease...everything is misrepresented! I hated it!

Example = large bent up piece of medal between bedroom& bath, "foot slicer". Hole in ceiling taped over w/ cloth. What rooms do people see that write the excellent reviews?? Appears to... More

Desk staff was nice. Bed squeaky, a/c barely worked. Windows only one would open. Bathroom window boarded up. No vent in bathroom, and just... More

Checking online for a hotel, came across the RELAX INN. Appeared to be moderate, not fancy and not a dive. But, I was completely taken back. My daughter cried and didnt even want to stay there once we opened the room doors!!! We booked the Family Suite, and it was just HORRIBLE!!! The smell was so overwhelming of mildew and... More

Thank you for taking care of us this last weekend! Everyone was wonderful to our guests. This motel is much older but they were clean, AC and a Pool. The motel rooms had microwaves & refrigerator. It was within walking distance to the "Great Smokey Mountain Train", places to eat and shop. Additionally, I was very pleased to notice the... More

Came here with my 2 little kids for a layover before the train. Very kind staff. Clean, but in strong need of some repairs and updates. The caulking in the shower was crumbly and black with mildew. Recently painted, but very sloppy with drips everywhere and lots of stray brush marks. No deadbolt or security chain on the door. Comfy... More
