Check in was easy, got a little lost trying to find our room but that’s it. Great staff and quiet room. Loved the late checkout they gave us, and directions on how to get to Asheville was super handy. God bless.

First, the name is misleading. Not actually the original historic Carnegie Hotel. It burned in a fire. Second, while a very nicely decorated and comfortable lobby, there is nothing special about the rooms. All rooms on front of building have a view of ETSU and a peekaboo view of Buffalo Mountain, but there is a lot of road noise so bring a noise machine. The rooms are large and comfortable at 400sqft, but the furniture is quite beaten up. Rooms on the top floor on the front have larger windows which are really nice. There is a mini refrigerator, but no microwave which was unfortunate because we did not want to use the in-room coffee maker because one can never tell if it is cleaned between guests (who could use their used cup to refill with water). Very convenient to everything in and around Johnson City. Free parking. Free local daily newspaper at the front desk. Restaurants within walking distance. We can not see what justifies the higher price versus other hotels in the area.

I stayed here four years ago, in 2016, and the hotel has not changed one bit. The rooms and common areas are still spotless, and the staff are as friendly as one would expect in a small southern city. My only complaint is the local coffee that is served in Wellington's restaurant is not to my liking. I asked for a different brand, and it was excellent. Other than that, I give this hotel five stars!

I LOVE this place. It's so good that I'm in the process of buying a mattress just like the ones on their beds. Yep, it beats a beautyrest black. I like the vintage feel king sleigh bed nice. Very quiet spacious room. Sparkling clean. The bathrooms have double sinks and seperate tubs and showers. BR also super clean, spotless actually. Stayed here during COVID and felt completely comfortable. The staff are super helpful and kind. Will definitely stay again soon. Lots of yummy food at the restaurant and packed up perfectly so that I could dine in my room. The pool and spa look inviting but I didn't try them due to COVID. I'll give them a try next time. What was a work trip I didn't want turned into a blessing.
