Just stayed here for a weekend sports tournament with my daughters. Simply put; in over 20 years as a business traveller, this may have been one of the worse jobs of customer service I have EVER seen. They mistakenly charged my card not once, but twice. This was after I paid cash for the room because they claimed my card... More

Hotel was a good location, near Lookout Moutain, across from Walmart,Logan's Steakhouse and Wendy's and near a Cracker Barrell. Just a short drive from downtown also. We went for a softball tournament. No self service laundry or laundromat nearby which would have been nice since we had to wash ball uniforms. Wifi was so, so....hit and miss on service. Breakfast...

We called and asked about the renovations and were comfortable with their plans and progress. The staff were all very kind and helpful and made... More

This location in Tennessee is no longer in the Choice hotel network. They are renovating and very dirty. No housekeeping??? Dust everywhere in the room, cobwebs on the ceiling. Their standards are not quite up to par for cleanliness. The clerk would not issue me a refund when I complained that it was too dirty and I couldn't stay here.... More

I was very hesitant to stay at this motel after reading the previous reviews but was very pleased with outstanding service that made up for any other shortcomings. The management recently changed-out. They informed me that they are working hard to implement a $2.5 mil upgrade which is obviously in progress. I can overlook things that are currently being fixed... More

This place is horrible. I arrived late after having booked online. I thought it is a Clarion, they are nice. It was to late and I was to tired to try and get my money back and then go searching for another place. The Clarion sign is a banner tied over some old sign by the road and over the... More

We made the mistake of paying in advance for this hotel. BAD IDEA! It was SOOOO terrible, there's not enough space here to list it all. Dirty, unsafe, dark and dingy, unclean bathrooms and showers, questionable beds/sheets/towels. And that is just the beginning! It was so terrible, we slept in the car instead. If someone offers you a free night... More

Traveling late at night had booked online through Choice Hotels, should have continued on but arrived late and needed a few hours of sleep. We had booked two rooms, we were traveling with family. The bathrooms were too filthy to use, so none of us got a shower that morning. Also some safety issues with a balcony sliding door that... More
