Driving thru they advertised newly renovated and it is. For a hotel this class this is pretty good. Don't expect too much such as very good breakfast or great service. The shower head was a Lil weak, the bed was OK new that's good, breakfast place is a Lil small so I had to wait for a table. But one... More

Traveled through from Florida and used hotel as a one night layover. During check in the staff appeared to be "locked" in their office and talk to you through a tiny hole in window. Looked around and wondered what kind of friendly service this could be. Staff not very polite and didnt appear friendly or welcoming. Got to room noticed... More

Once again I stopped in here on my cross country motorcycle trip and was very satisfied. Service with a smile, nice clean rooms and you could pull up the bike right to the door of the room. Hope to be back on my next trip.

Room I checked into wasn't as nice as one I looked at beforehand, but because I refused to pay extra for a smoking double that I didn't need since, supposedly there second floor single smoking rooms and ones in single story section in rear were already occupied, took a single non-smoking room. Which still had a cigarette burn in the... More

This is my 2nd stay at Americas Best Value Inn, Kingsport, TN. Both times it was very good to excellent! My room was clean and fresh smelling. I specifically requested Non Smoking - there was no trace of smoke in the room. The hotel is "pet friendly" which I need; there was no evidence of other pets having stayed in... More

Was very satisfied. Room was clean, staff was friendly, and breakfast was waffles, cereal, and juice and coffee. Nothing fancy but can't beat it for this price. I would stay there again on my next trip.

This was a convenient, affordable stop off the highway on our trip to Gatlinburg - easy to get to. It was surprisingly quiet for a Saturday night & the place was full. I'm sure the rates are much higher during races, but that's supply & demand. It has free wifi; waffles, cereal, coffee, milk & juices for breakfast. Room was... More
