I stoped there for the night. It was a worst hotel experience I ever had. Room had two double beds but only one big towels. Some towels were dirty. I went to the office and asked for more towels. I never got them. I will recommend to stay away from this hotel.

Was on the road to attend a funeral and didn't know it was game day in Knoxville (University of Tennessee). Places were full all over town and I started to worry. Budget Inn was the bright light at the end of the tunnel, booked a nice room with all the creature comforts and got a fantastic room rate. The premises... More

I chose this hotel purely because we were on a very tight budget. This was the first time I'd stayed in a Motel 6, and I was very surprised at how nice the room was, considering the price we paid. The bed was comfortable and WiFi was free.

I've stayed here quite a few times on motorcycle trips to to the Tail of the Dragon. Hot showers, cold AC, comfy beds, coffee in the morning and take off. I have found the staff to be friendly. Ask them for directions to Altruda's old style Italian restaurant a few miles away on Kingston Pike.

I stayed at this hotel during a recent trip to Tennessee. I had read some of the previous reviews (as I usually do) but I found not to have a problem with the hotel. The room was comfortable, the bed a little bit hard but not too hard, and the shower, fridge, and all amenities worked fine. The front desk... More

Rooms are older but clean. We could nit pick about things but that's possible everywhere. Is pet friendly but not pet nasty. Very pleased and would stay again. We only used the room none of the other eminities such as the pool or room service.
