The room was basic but survivable. It had a faint odor of bug spray -- good sign or bad? The advertised WiFi, if it existed, certainly did not reach my room -- so no Internet connection. I found the evening desk agent extraordinarily rude and unhelpful. The "continental breakfast" offered was laughable, There are many other options at this location,... More

I stayed here for a 2 night business trip. I wasn't expecting but was quite surprised. Location is great. Several restaurants and fast food places in walking distance. The rooms themselves were not bad at all. They were clean! The staff up front was very friendly throughout. My room faced the interstate, but was not affected by the noise as... More

We just needed a hotel to sleep at one night because we will be at the dorm at UTK for my daughters orientation. Was very surprised how nice the room was for the cheap price. Parked right by our door, beds were very comfy and room was extremely clean! I plan on staying here for now on when I come... More

I must say this lodge had better beds/accommodations for it's price and location than the other place up the street. We got a non-smoking room and it was actually "non-smoking". The bed, bath, sink, room in it's entirety was clean. Plenty of towels, soap, and TP. Refrigerator, microwave, TV, and blow dryer all worked fine. There was a USB outlet... More

This was our one budget stop before staying in more expensive places in Savannah and St. Augustine. We knew it wouldn't be the lap of luxury and it wasn't. But at a $41 pre-tax rate it was fine. The room was mostly clean, although wear and tear in the bathroom tub basin, along with numerous wall and ceiling cracks throughout... More

People where friendly. Room was ready when we got there. Bed was a little soft, tub and sink where a little stained and cracked marks. Chair in room was really hard to sit in, uncomfortable a lot. Air conditioning unit was very loud, ended up turning way down. Close to restaurants, could walk most places. Right off interstate , easy... More

Staff was friendly and courteous. Room was a little small and you can tell that it is an older Motel but it was clean and good enough for a night's stay. The beds were very soft and comfortable but to me the pillows were a little too soft but that might be just my preference. My 14 year old son... More

Gets the basics right and at this price, that's all you can ask. Good for stopping by on your way to somewhere else. Rooms clean and in good condition. Forgot a kid's tablet there and they called within 15 minutes of departure so we could return without getting too far -- so they're honest and care.
