Stayed there 1-22-15 got a nice room. Seemed to be a bunch of young energetic staff there either cleaning or upgrading. Big pile of old AC/heating units out back. Everything worked and was very clean in the room. Breakfast wasn't worth the walk to the office....

My husband and I came to visit Burgess Falls. We decided to stay here because of the price. We were so pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room. It was like walking into an efficiency apartment. A huge king size bed, recliner chair, massive dresser, etc. all immaculately clean. The hotel had several occupants, but the rooms are insulated...

We stayed one night in May, 2014. Asked for a non-smoking room, and it was fresh, with no evidence of smoke. Well maintained, bathroom had been renovated and had modern fixtures. Modern micro-wave, refrigerator, clock radio and flat-screen TV. Room appeared spotless. Close-by restaurants. Reception area rather dingy, which doesn't give a good first impression, but we spent little time... More

Stayed here for the week-end with a friend, back on October 2001. I was on a trip to see said friend, six weeks after 9/11. We came to see a mutual friend from the town; which is described on the welcome signs of Sparta as a city! (In 2001 is was a small town perhaps, but set in a beautiful... More

The room was clean and well-maintained. Reasonable size room. Nothing fancy, but Sparta is a small town. Price was good. No complaints at all. Not much else to say, but tripadvisor requires 200 characters.

Upon further inspection there is red/brown splatter stains on the bathroom wall. wifi password was not written anywhere in the room had to call and... More

We truly apologize for this out of the ordinary experience, and we thank you for letting us know about these issues. The 1st occupant requested a smoking room at check-in, but a 2nd occupant, who was not present at check-in, later came down saying the room was smoky. There might have been a misunderstanding at the front desk or between... More

Quite impressed with this motel, good location and great price, room was clean and comfortable. They do need to make some minor improvements to the rooms. Oh ya, what ever they were cooking in their residence smelled nasty and they should work on that issue.

Surprisingly....good. PROS: Hotel is clean and rooms are CLEAN and comfortable. Internet was excellent, password required. It is close to town, Route 111 takes you past Wal-mart, Kroger, Macdonalds. Town is boring with typical places to eat. Outdoor pool was clean, parking areas clean, new carpets, family operated. Clean and safe with Low price makes it A BEST VALUE. A... More

We stayed here for 5 nights in July 2012 while visiting family in Sparta. We had stayed there previously a few years back so we knew it was a place we would stay at again. You can't beat the price. Nightly rate for a King Bed non-smoking is around $47. The room was clean and included a couch and coffee... More
