We stayed at the Econo Lodge because of the good reviews and high ratings. We were not disappointed, and would stay there again. It doesn't have a pool or gym, but we weren't going to use those anyway. Breakfast is limited but we found it adequate (waffle maker and a couple kinds of cereal, fruit juice and milk, some fruit,...

Let me start by saying the staff was lovely and my problems were not with staffing. Upon entry and first impression, the room was newly painted, looked very clean, and bl nice furnishings. When I went to wash my hands, roaches ran out around the rim of sink and vanity. Small nasty invasive roaches. So I went immediately to the...

This is the hotel we stay in when passing through TN. The only complaint is the room says no smoking, but reeked of smoke. Oh, and when the air conditioner was turned on, a musty smell comes blowing out. And our last visit, the headboard was sort of half on the wall and the other half was on the floor....

We stayed here last night for the Kenny Chesney concert as part of the Battle at Bristol weekend. The motel is 12 miles from the speedway and easy to get to from speedway. The room was basic and clean. As expected, they jacked up the price to a ridiculous number for an Econo Lodge, but I guess everyone does that.

After a long day of traveling, we looked online for an inexpensive place to stay. Since it was a quick stop for just sleeping this was a great option. Friendly staff, super comfy beds, & hot shower! <3

This is a great hidden little gem on a hill. The rooms were very clean and beds were comfortable. Recently remodeled. Quiet and off the beaten path. We stayed just for the night while traveling through. There is also a continental breakfast even though not advertised. Was pleasantly surprised.
