This place has a great breakfast with some of the best biscuits around. The eggs are great and they have fresh grits! However, the room could have definitely been cleaner. We found pet hair on the night stand. Overall, it is a decent place to stay. Just check out the room first.

Thank you for your comments. We think our breakfast is a wonderful asset to our hotel. I am disappointed to see that our rooms could have been better. I am very sorry that you did not find the room as wonderful as the breakfast. I will definitely pass along your comments to the housekeeping department so that they may learn...

I arrived to early to get my room right away. Once in the room it was rather dark I tried to plug in a few devices I have and the plugs kept falling out of the extra outlet that was added. Other than that not to bad. The restaurant is nice bartender Lee is friendly and interactive with the customers

We are from out of town and saw on the web site they had the indoor pool, game room and restaurant attached (since we had the kids with as well). Called ahead to reserve and confirm the pet policy as well (travelling with a cat). We were told no adjoining rooms available (needed 2 rooms) and that one room would...

Clean room, with fridge, and modern furniture. Very friendly and help front desk staff. Plenty of outside restaurants within a short drive, with a mall across the street. We were very tired, ate dinner and went to bed. The free breakfast was buffet style and very good with a large variety of food.

Excellent staff: very helpful when I checked in. Great complimentary breakfast - like none other I've ever had - and an authentic Indian restaurant to boot. What a gem to find in this part of Tennessee.

I stayed at this Hotel this week. Upon arriving, I noticed a commanding presence of the hotel on the corner, beside Duncan doughnuts. This was on a Sunday so I parked in front and waited in line with several people as the young lady who was very kind, patient but a bit over whelmed helped us check in. It seemed...

This is clearly an older hotel that has seen better days and could use some updating. It felt old and smelled a bit musty. The rooms were mostly clean, but the cleaning staff could have done a lot better job. The wi-fi was terrible because we could never connect any of our devices and had to go use the computer...

Great staff! The facility is an old Holidome, and has been recently painted, but could still use some new carpet and paint on the room doors. Very reasonable prices, easy access to the interstate, plenty of places to eat in the vicinity. Kid friendly.
