It's kind of hard to find because the entrance is in the parking lot of the Burger King that is directly in front of the hotel. The room was recently updated and painted with a 80's style orange color. The place was clean and cheap so yeah I would stay there again if I was on the road.

Exceeded expectations - good value in all respects. Gentleman at front desk very helpful. Very clean, reasonably comfortable. Quiet until the morning - loud guests are always a nuisance - additionally those who smoke by the front door - this not the motel's fault though.

My husband and I visited last night on a road trip. The room was very clean, the manager was very nice and helpful. Will stop there again on our next trip through Athens. The building was in good condition- one of the best Motel 6 we have stayed at.

We have been staying at this hotel for about 9 weeks now, on and off throughout our project. The front desk manager has been easy to work with and has offered great rates for an extended period of time. No, it's not a 5 star hotel, but we didn't expect it to be. The hotel wifi works fine and the... More

Spilled a little water and when I wiped it up with the rag of a towel it was filthy. Fake hardwood needs to be washed periodically, hello! Towels are not worthy of being rags, but they could second as a loofa if you forgot yours. Haven't slept on a totally worn out mattress and box springs lately? Here's your chance!... More

This is probably one of the best Motel 6's I have stayed at. The staff is friendly and keeps the place clean. It's very accessible to Interstate 75 and just about halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Enjoy!

It is a no frills, budget motel. It was clean, exactly how it is advertised and affordable. We were in the area for rafting and going to the caves. It was perfect for that, close to both and perfect for retiring at the end of the night for sleeping. There is not a common area, if you do want to... More
