The room was much larger than I expected and had a microwave and mini-fridge. Super comfortable pillows and a great night sleep. Only a couple of miles from LMU, so a great location if you are in Middlesboro for business. Wal-mart accross the street in case you forgot anything!

This is my "go to" place to stay when visiting family in the area. Have been staying there since the first year it was opened. It is getting a bit outdated, but otherwise fairly clean and cozy. One of the best values in the area(and there isn't much nice to stay at in the area).

Would stay here again if passing through. Staff strives on making you feel welcome and taking care of your needs. Located across from Walmart. We were staying while visiting a Lincoln memorial university celebration. Can't beat the location.

My family of 3 stayed here on vacation. Good location, rooms were clean and quiet, breakfast was great. A highlight was the friendliness of the staff. The bathroom was a little dated, but I would stay here again. Close to Cumberland Gap.
