I stayed at this Motel 6 for 6 nights, while my son was at the University of Tennessee dorms for a global competition. First impression was of a terrible odor. This was the harbinger of things to come. My room (non smoking) stunk of smoke. The television was color(just 1) green. The shower had soap in it that was older... More

Not the best Motel 6, but not the worst either. Got what we paid for, neither had any thing to complain about or praise about. Room was of average cleanlines and comfort for a budget motel. Room seemed to be a value for money spent.

My husband and I were at this hotel. At first we noticed suspicious malicious stuff going on. It didn't stop there.. Our car alam constantly went off. There were a white girl with a black guy that always seemed to set our alarm off and be scoping things out to see how far they can go. It is drug central... More

My partner and I have stayed in countless Motel 6s around the US. We have felt like we know where to set out expectations and appreciate the low price.. Until we stayed here. The first room had mold in it. The second room the clerk gave us smelled like cigarettes ("non-smoking") and wet dogs. There were some rather unsavory gentleman... More

We have stayed at Motel 6 before and were not expecting the Hilton. However, this place looked dangerous. If we had driven into the back parking lot before we checked in, we would have driven away. There were a lot of people wandering around, room doors were open, too many cars for the number of rooms. We felt safe inside... More

One of the most disgusting hotel rooms I've ever been in. I am all about inexpensive motels and I don't ask for much. A clean room and a bathroom where I don't feel like I have to shower in shower shoes. I booked this originally for 3 nights and left after one. Despite having a no smoking sign on the... More

We stayed here while coming back to Knoxville to get the rest of our furniture for our move to NC. The 1st room we were assigned had a horrific amount of mold in the bathroom and a leak from the ceiling so bad that the fan fell out of the wall onto the toilet. I asked the clerk (Staci?) to... More

I recommend to anyone not to stay here. As soon as we got to the property we noticed the creepy people hanging around outside and drinkning beer in the parking lot. We got our room and our room was filthy. Dried toothpaste in the sink, brown handprints all over the bathroom walls and door, toilet didnt flush, sheet had hair... More
