The staff was very friendly and willing to help you out with whatever you needed. Breakfast was included which was cereal, juice, oatmeal and a waffle maker. The rooms are about what you would expect, so not fancy but will do for an inexpensive place to stay in the mountains. Very close to the local grocery store and a breakfast... More

The room wasn't horrible but the wi-fi was really slow and the tv wasn't clear on most of the channels. The staff seem friendly though. I do kinda wish we paid a little bit more for a better hotel but like I said It wasn't horrible.

The management and staff of Nations Inn were friendly and courteous, however the building itself is just what you would expect from an aging low budget Hotel/Motel....somewhat dilapidated, noisy, musty smelling, and dirty. There was mold present in the bathroom and shower areas. While some maintenance issues due to aging can be understood, there is no excuse for dirt and... More

At first glance it seemed fine but then began to notice unclean condition of room. Chairs felt sticky, black gook in corners of bathroom, wifi very weak, tv remote volume I didn't work and no exhaust for the bathroom. We had to leave the door open while showering unless you wanted to suffocate.

We stayed @ this motel twice in a two week span, the room was clean, the hotel staff was very nice and helpful. The breakfast could use some help? but remember it is continental breakfast (just that). Very close to everything... parkway and good restaurants, shopping. We would stay here again and would recommend it our friends!

This is the second time we've stayed at this friendly, well-run establishment, and we are as pleased this time as our first visit. We have had pet-friendly rooms each time which were spotlessly clean. The staff is always courteous and helpful. The motel is in a great location convenient to dining, shopping and right at the gateway to the Blue... More

This is a pet friendly motel, which is hard to find in this town. Nothing special but all you will be doing is sleeping there. Rooms are clean and beds comfortable. Breakfast could be better, all cold food.

A family member booked this room for us. I was really disappointed and would have left if I'd made the arrangements myself. I'm not sure what rate we paid, so maybe you get what you pay for. I was skeptical about how clean the room was and rightfully so. Black mildew down the back of our shower curtain solidified that... More
