We knew this was a cheap hotel and weren't expecting lavish amenities. However, we did expect toilet paper and working outlets! Our non-smoking room reeked of smoke and was filthy! All of the negative reviews about this place are true. Pay more money and stay somewhere else!!! I'm starting to itch just thinking about this place...

We called 3 times and were hung up on three times before we finally were able to secure a room. All of the lights were off in our room and it took the manager and cleaner (not sure what she cleaned) to get the lights back. I will skip the story's about the lady's of the night asking me and... More

Worst hotel I have ever stayed at. I don't even know where to begin other than I wish I listened to the other reviews on here. I got here and paid $15 more than listed on the site and the room wasn't worth a penny. Roaches everywhere, no hot water, the smell of smoke all night in our non-smoking room... More

In my opinion this place is one of the worst hotels I've ever stayed at. MY associates and me travel alot and we thought for 55 dollars a night it would at least be halfway clean. but it was not and staff very rude.

We (me and two other colleagues) were going to a conference in Knoxville, but the conference hotel was full. We booked a room here in spite of the reviews because we did not anticipate spending much time in the room. This "hotel" is basically a flop house where people rent by the week and hang out in the hallway drinking.... More

It was the most awful place, I have ever seen. I have visited many countries, around the World and US States, and never experienced such a low-quality place. The room was dirty with numerous cockroaches in it. All our snacks, etc., was chewed in that room by cockroaches, and we had to discard them even without even being touched! We... More

Stayed here in Feb 2008 and a friend of mine had actually just watched a hotel special on 20/20. My friend says the first thing you do when you stay in a hotel is look under the mattresses and look at the pillows. I really didn't believe him until he lifted one mattress and we found a tuxedo black condom... More
