2 of 5 stars Reviewed October 7, 2013

Stopped at this property while driving through TN on my way to TX. Good location, just off I-81, far enough off the road to be quiet. Office staff efficient if a bit cold, but answered questions and were generally helpful. At first glance, things appeared to be clean; however, the longer I was in the room, the more the cleanliness disappeared. Bathtub was not clean, and there were a LOT of long hairs in the tub, the sink, and all over the bathroom floor - disgusting. Carpet in the room was not clean, and when I moved the night stand slightly to access an electric outlet, there was all sorts of gunk and dirt piled up by the wall, including several petrified pieces of candy. Bed was marginally clean, the comforters did have several rips and tears in them. Plenty of fast food and full service restaurants within a mile or two, as well as stores and shops. Personally, I wouldn't stay here again.

Room Tip: Hotel sits on top of a rather steep hill; all rooms would seem to be pretty quiet.

I stay at the Super 8 Motel in Kingsport,TN. at least 2 to 4 times per month. My stays at Super 8 have always been excellent. The staff are very professional;they will go out of their way to assist you anyway they can,room is always clean. Anytime I'm in Kingsport,I will stay at the Super 8 at Lynn Garden. It's a great place to stay,close to many eating establishments and places to shop. My rating of Super 8 at Lynn Garden,Kingsport,TN. is excellent.

Room Tip: If traveling in the Kingsport area,Super 8 is the place to stay; the one at Lynn Garden.

Everything was in order when I checked into the room except that it had a pronounced cigarette stench. When I checked out the next morning I told the lady at the desk about the problem and she stated that she would look into it. I stayed at the motel because I was visiting friends in Kingsport.
