On a trip across Middle to East Tennessee, we learned there was no lodging for many hours on the scenic route of Hwy 52, 27, 63, from Clarksville to Harragat, TN. After being on the road 6.5 hours we were tired, and we were told by someone at a service station the nearest lodging was in Middlesboro, Ky. We went... More

I stayed at the Holiday Inn in Middlesboro for a business trip for one night. Since Middlesboro is a small town, there are not a lot of options and this is by far the nicest hotel in town. This hotel was like most of the HIE properties and found it to be of the same high quality as the rest... More

I've been staying at this hotel for years for business it's always consistent and clean. The front desk staff is always friendly and accommodating. The manager and the day staff is also terrific. There's not a lot of choices in this town and the sleep then it's new but you can always count on this property to be consistent. Unfortunately... More

Arrived on a rainy cold day and we were at check in, greeted by warm cookies and an efficient desk clerk-The room was clean and the breakfast was good. Had a lot of choices, including sausage gravy. The staff was very helpful. Couldn't have been a more enjoyable stay.

We were a little concerned when we arrived and discovered 3 rock groups were also staying the night. No need to worry - we had a very quiet night and slept well. Plus it was free pancake machine night from 8 to midnight. The kiddies loved it! Juice, yogurt, fresh fruit and chocolate milk too. Our room had a big... More

Nice hotel, great staff, clean rooms, outdoor pool in season. Breakfast is hot and good and lots of variety. Close to shopping, restaurants and most importantly Cumberland Gap National Park. Pancake maker during breakfast is great. Had cookies at lobby desk at night that were great.

Nice location, huge rooms and friendly staff. Breakfast was very good - not too crowded in the breakfast room. Felt a very safe area, but was surprised that trying to walk across the road was difficult because there were no sidewalks. Also was surprised the pool was closed as it was now Fall.
