the front Desk LADY is super NICE, but the room has no light, tissues, filthy bathroom, AC sound is strange, Had to switch the room to connect internet. Stay if you don,t find place elsewhere. I am just no pleased with the over all room Quality. However it was convenient and close to 75.

Found this hotel from one of the coupon books. We tried to check the room out before we stayed. But there was a lamp out, so we used our flashlight, doing the best we could, as our main concern was bed bugs. My husband could tell it was worn out, and not as clean as it could be, but we... More

Stopped here because of an add in the freeway travel coupon books. The hotel was only $36.99 or $44 with tax. The place is quite run down and the roaches come out at night. The breakfast is terrible. No juice or tea, just coffee.

The room smelled very weird, the beds were supposed to be queen beds, and ended up only being full beds. There were small bugs in the bathtub, and a cockroach on the door. Never again. You get what you pay for.

Looking for a place to stay after going through Knoxville. THe rate was good. The front desk lady was very nice. Gave us a nice room. It was clean and free of bugs. A hand written note from the maid service. The only thing was the train going through late at nite woke us up.

Just traveling I-75 back from Florida. At our hotel in Florida, we gave it a 5 star rating, so we are not picky or unreasonable. Just wanted a clean room for the night. We had checked on line and booked this hotel through Expedia a few hours earlier. Good Lord God, I thought we were in the movie "Deliverance" at... More
