Please take this review seriously. Read some of my other reviews to get an idea of whether this sort of over the top negativity is my norm. I really, really want to dissuade you from ever staying here. First off, the woman at the front desk needs a lesson in basic cordiality. Her greeting was a series of shouts and... More

I was here for one night to grab a few hours of rest before a big hike in the area. I was pleasantly surprised at how comfortable and clean it was. Though it may need a few updates, for the money, I could not have been happier. I had no complaints with my room whatsoever. I appreciated the hot shower... More

In their defense, they are in the process of refurbishing some rooms. On the surface everything looks good, but the linens, for example, need to be updated. The towels are small and lack fluffiness. Some additional outlets would solve the problem of using extension cords to power computers, phones, and cpap machines. The breakfast left a lot to be desired... More

Having stayed at this place, I must now have my entire home fumigated. Although I showered in the morning, bedbugs followed my home in my clothing and in my luggage. Please beware! The room I stayed in, highly recommended by the Indian owner, was the one replete with bedbugs. All levels of humanity stay there so bedbugs should come as... More

After reading reviews on Tripadviser for this hotel and needing a room for 2 nights, my husband and I along with our dog decided to try this hotel. When we checked in we were told that only the smoking rooms were available to people with pets. So before paying we went to see how smokey a room smelled and we... More

Our stay was brief, but, comfortable. We had a king room and slept well. They need some maintenance and general updating, bit this is a great little hotel for the money. Make sure you get a non smoking room, if you are allergic to smoke. They have not gone smoke free.

I had to drive from NY to Sparta, TN for a funeral. Frankly I have driven on wknd trips throughout the Eastern seaboard and this place was better than some of the motels I've stayed in. Being from out of town, the location was great. Right off 111. The room extremely clean and comfortable. The outside needed some painting but... More

Stayed there 1-22-15 got a nice room. Seemed to be a bunch of young energetic staff there either cleaning or upgrading. Big pile of old AC/heating units out back. Everything worked and was very clean in the room. Breakfast wasn't worth the walk to the office....

My husband and I came to visit Burgess Falls. We decided to stay here because of the price. We were so pleasantly surprised when we walked into our room. It was like walking into an efficiency apartment. A huge king size bed, recliner chair, massive dresser, etc. all immaculately clean. The hotel had several occupants, but the rooms are insulated...
