This is a low budget $50/night motel. It is older with some updating, definitely like the old motor lodges. We'd requested non-smoking, but it obviously was not smoke free. Rather unique colors, pink and red walls. The bed was standard motel mattress. But it was clean. The managers are from India and the gentleman that checked us in said that... More

First off, I don't know where to start. Either with the sticky-stained carpet, brown streaky stained tub, the broken toilet with do-do stained feces, the towels and sheets which appeared to be stained with years of bodily fluids, the dark gloomy room which was probably used to disguise all of the filthiness or them just being cheap [--], and etc....

They said they had to rebook because I arrived so late. Although they called my wife at home around 11:00 pm... More

We were quoted one price when we booked it but was chaged a higher price when we checked out. When I got my bank statement I found they charged my credit card an additional $9.16 per room and...

Before the Volunteer Lodge was a bad place to stay, however now it is one of the greatest and cheapest hotels in Johnson City. The new owners are very friendly and willing to go the extra mile to comfort the guests. They have cleaned up the place very nicely and the rooms are much much more cleaner and better! The... More

This is the worst motel I have ever stayed in. I had no hot water in shower, no cold water in sink, phone was broken, bare wires hanging out of wall where smoke detector should have been, absolutely filthy, and Sunday evening when I came in dripping wet from thunderstorm, all my towels and soap were gone! The air conditioner... More

This was the worst hotel i have ever stayed in my life. I wish we had read the review on this hotel before we made reservations. The other could'nt have been more correct, this place needs to be demolished. There was mold around the tub, the water control fell off, the water spigot was loose and about to fall off.... More
