Our first experience staying at a Rodeway Inn was a good one. We often travel with two small dogs which limits our hotel choices. The Rodeway Inn in Sweetwater is clean, quiet, and secure. Our beds were comfortable. The room did not smell musty even after three days of rain; nor did the room reek of that awful "fragrance spray"... More

My stay at this hotel was POOR. The springs were coming out and poking through the mattress. A very unpleasant sleep. I have stayed there before and it was okay. The entrance roof needs some cosmetic work. The room I had was a double full size. Very unpleasant. The chances of me staying there again any time soon is not... More

This was a very comfortable room. We had a king size bed. There was a nice desk in the room to do any work you needed to do. The rooms have microwaves, a small fridge, iron and ironing boards in the room. Very convenient Location

This was a great little find thanks to tripadvisor, not that many places too choose from around Sweetwater and we were just passing through having driven over the mountains that day from Bryson City. We had a king room which was spotless with a very nice bathroom with a good shower. Comfortable bed. The bonus was the little indoor pool... More

Traveling with a chartered bus load of Senior Adults from my home church. This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The rooms were clean and comfortable with dual access from both the outside walkway and an enclosed interior hall. Beds were comfortable and furnishings were very adequate. Cooling system was relatively quiet and efficient. The breakfast area was fairly small and... More

We usually stay at The Comfort Inn in Athens when visiting our grandsons but were forced to make alternate plans this time. I chose this place because of the reviews I read and because it is nonsmoking. I could not be more pleased with my choice. The place has been renovated and more than met our needs for a night's...

We usually do not stay at Econo Lodges but after reading trip advisor decided to give it a try. This was by far our best lodging. This hotel has been completely remodeled inside and out. Everything was so fresh looking and the parking lot was extremely well lit. The people at the front desk were extremely helpful and very pleasant.... More

Great room for the price! Our first floor room had beds that were comfortable and clean and the room was large and nicely decorated. The large pool and pool area were clean and nicely appointed with chairs, tables and plenty of towels. To top all of this off, the breakfast was free and offered a nice variety. The only downside...

Because it has recently been refurbished, it is an ok place for a nights sleep. The beds were comfortable, bedding updated. The towels were mighty small even for those if us of a smaller stature. The breakfast was slim pickings with "see through" coffee.

We stayed 1 night and found this very basic room to be clean and comfortable. The chair did have a huge stain and the couch was quite worn, but the bed was comfortable and we saw no evidence of bed bugs. The continental breakfast was sufficient. The staff was quite friendly and helpful. It isn't a luxury hotel, but for... More
