“Meth Lab Bust, Dont stay Here!”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed January 12, 2013

Not to long ago a Meth Lab was going on in one of the rooms, It was busted by the cops and ppl were put in Jail,. This place is mostly used for prositution, drugs, and parting. The rooms are disgusting, the staff is rude, in the summer the pool is soo nasty green and slimmy, stains on sheets and blankets, some thing on all the walls, Cheap place, you get what you paid for which is nooo good deal, dont waste your money! You may walk away with something you cant get rid of!!

Room Tip: go to the surrounding motels, there is nicer and cleaner ones right there by this one

Bed was comfortable. Carpet was threadbare, nightstand was broken. Half the tiles in bathroom were up or loose. Front desk was adequate. Unless really tired and no other hotels in the area with vacancies, would not stay here again. Of note, we usually stay in motel 6, super 8 category motels.

while this is not a newer motel it was perfect for us..brand new mattress..subway & beer right next door. everything you could need. we were travelling from south carolina coming through the mountains north when Hurricane Sandy greeted us...after several harrowing hours in that weather through the mountain winds & blizzard conditions we saw the sign for the Knights Inn from the highway. they were so welcoming and helpful. we were very very grateful they were there!

The owners here are milking whatever revenue they can from an aging property. AkEx was right on in his review in that if you can handle cheap motels you won't have a problem staying here. Some updates have been made. The beds and linens were clean. The funiture, while worn, was functional. The pool was open. Coffee, donuts and juice is available in the lobby in the morning. For $46, it was an okay value. Only recommended for those who need a break from the road and aren't very picky. Others are advised to stay elsewhere. One plus is the cable television lineup, several stations are available.

HORRIBLE does not even begin to describ this place. My son and I checked in, got sick within five minutes from some awful fumes left by previous guests. There was blood stains on the pillow case, burn marks on the ceilings, holes in the walls, and knife marks across the sink. Quite honestly I think this place was used for as meth lab. We left, went accross the street, got a room, bagged out cloths because they smelled so bad, and couldnt get in the shower quick enough.

The staff is very very RUDE, We were given a room that was so dirty that I felt like me and my children needed a tetanus shot, at first we thought we could look over the dirt & food all over every walls, until we left and came back 2 hours later and Pulled down the blankets and there was dirt all over the bed! So we went to the front desk and the man was raising his voice at me and was sooo rude that I felt myself shaking, all I asked for was a clean room to switch from that one, another customer was standing there and heard how rude this man was, she asked me was this place nasty besides being also rude and I told her YES! Also the pool was green, u could not see the bottom of it for nothing, and there was things floating in it, & things all over the bottom disgusting doesn't even compare how grose this place is! Don't come here, save your money!

Worst place I ever Stayed in, Tried to get another room, & the man said he didn"t have a vac, which was not true. The tile in the bathroom was not grouted, just laying in the floor. No cover in the ceiling to cover the lights, The electric outlet looked like someone had burnt it in the dressing room. The room was dirty & smelled. The freezer in the refrigerator was full of ice & very dirty. The front door did not seal, you could see llight all around the door We Paid for 3 nights, When we checked out The Person on duty said they had NOT been full. The desk clerk did not want to do a little work, to the paper work or a refund.

Room Tip: Check the room out before you pay or read the reviews
