Great staff, clean and checking in and out was effortless. I am so glad we found this place, it is perfectly located between home and Nashville. The breakfast items were not fresh and selection was very limited, however there was a bowl of fresh fruit (assorted, not just apples and bananas).

Room was clean and neat; staff was helpful; swimming pool was clean. We had an excellent stay and would recommend to others. Outstanding value for the price. We would definitely stay at this lodging again.

We didn't have a reservation and got this room right away. I was a bit skeptical because they had a room available on such short notice. (about an hour) The young lady that checked us in was great and the pet charge was less that we paid 8 yrs. ago at another motel. Our room was clean and comfortable, nice... More

We stayed in the family 2 room suite and loved the whole experience. The Thunderbird was a great value. Loved the pool and the breakfast. Make sure to eat at the Mexican restaurant across from check-in. Food and service a wow.

Great stay was much better than last year. Last year was terrible; not water for bathing. Very rude check in and check out. Dirty bathroom, and was more money last year to stay. Would not except my state rate. Started not to stay there this year, but glad I did. Must be under new management because check in/out spoke clear... More

Very nice hotel - very good location - check in and check out staff were great - affordable - would definitely stay here again. Many options for food - gas - bank - wal-mart in very close proximity. I didn't use the breakfast, however, it looked great.

Possibly the best motel you can get. Very clean, nice rooms, well maintained property, cold a/c in rooms, and friendly staff. I consider myself a hotel snob and found this motel to be excellent. Definitely recommend!

I was looking for a hotel to spend the night for my sons orientation at Tennessee Tech. The hotel was very nice for the rate. Our room was very spacious and clean. The beds and pillows were comfortable and all the bed linens looked very clean. The pool looked nice but we didn't get a chance to use it because... More

We booked this place because of the price, knowing that it wasn't going to be a Hilton. Everything was to be expected, nothing great or awful. On the upside, they were installing new granite on all the first floor rooms as of 6/10/14. I would recommend this place if you are looking for a one night stay on a through... More
