We stayed overnight on the way to Virginia. The price and room were great! The lady at the desk was somewhat rude to people. Of course it was 10:00 on Saturday night and she was probably tired if being there.

This isn't a plush, fancy hotel, but it's perfectly decent and very convenient. Add inexpensive, and it's really a nice place to stay. I've been back to this motel several times and been pleased each time.

Checked in for night three of our 6,000 mile, cross-country trek. Reserved a non-smoking King room via Orbitz from outside of Lebanon, TN. We were checked in by a young man with zero customer service skills. His older female coworker was friendly enough. We made our way upstairs to room 223, but were bowled over as soon as we opened...

The hallways were clean. Our room was very contemporary and clean. The bed was comfortable and the triangle shaped shower was nice and big! The... More

Traveling through Tennessee in January on the way to Charleston, we stopped late on the east side of Knoxville and checked rates at a string of hotels. Not surprisingly, Motel 6 was almost half the cost of others in the area ($50 for two persons with AARP discount). I had not stayed in a Motel 6 in almost twenty years... More

Had stayed at this property several times prior and was always pleased. We had asked for a late check out and was told we... More

I stayed at this hotel for a single night, I happened to be passing by on my way to Philadelphia. I choose it because I was on a budget. I paid $46.89 total. The staff in the reception area was very friendly. There was no breakfast included, only fresh coffee and it was hot and fresh when I checked out... More

We stayed here 11/8/2013 in room 214. Woke up in the morning to find a bed bug crawling on the bed. Told the manager, and she gave us a $25 discount....thanks a lot. The next day a bed bug fell out of our backpack. Over the course of the next week, my fiance woke up with 25-30 irritated bite areas... More
