Like some of the others below, looked and booked online. The photo online looks normal but the actuality is that this lodging is in a very questionable part of town and there is no doubt that highly suspicious activities were taking place in some of the rooms. Got there, checked in with my daughter in tow. 3 minutes to be... More

I have had so much luck with ABVI until Knoxville/Chilhowie. I made the mistake of not checking the reviews when we were driving from Raleigh, NC to Knoxville. This place is a DUMP....they even have signs outside for "hourly" rates for guess who....the street walkers! The surrounding neighborhood is not much better. There were people repairing cars in the parking... More

As soon as I told our taxi driver where we were staying, he warned us he was taking us to a motel in a 'not so good' part of town, and that prostitutes and drug dealers work from there. We were unfazed, but he wouldn't leave until we had checked in and were safely in our room. The young man... More

I would not be surprised if the majority of this joint's clientele don't pay by the hour. Arrived without reservations after 8-hours of driving and was met at front desk by a man who could barely speak English while my wife waited in the car. I put the room on my Visa and went to go to the room. While... More

The room was reasonably clean, but not entirely secure. there were multiple residents who stared whenever we werent in our room and made us feel quite uneasy. The guy who owned it was lovely and very helpful- he was obviously keeping an eye on us and making sure we were safe. His family were all lovely. However, on our first... More

I would like to echo some of the opinions above. THE PARKING LOT IS NOT EVEN SAFE. There were many shady characters hanging out very late at night; there were people that looked like they were in the middle of some kind of sex-proposition, there were terribly beaten-down cars all over the parking lot except one really gorgeous Mercedes...

The worst hotel I've ever stayed in--and I've stayed in some dumps. We arrived late at night to find the parking lot haunted by hookers and drunks. We had to check in through a bulletproof glass window while standing outside and then walk through the drunks to our rooms. It was unsafe to say the least. Our rooms were dirty,... More

We took a little weekend getaway for Father's Day. I found this hotel online with only 2 other reviews, both were simple and seemed positive enough. Our visit: Pros....... Smelled very clean when we walked in. In fact the furniture was “slick” with polish residue. We had to wipe it all down (including the headboard) with toilet tissue (there was... More
