Reviewed October 29, 2013

When we pulled up to the motel, we wondered if we were going to have a good experience. It had a very nice and clean appearance, but was obviously older, one story and the rooms had an outside entrance. Once we walked into the room, however, our concerns disappeared. Our room had been renovated and was very nice and clean. It had a nice TV, wireless Internet and, most importantly, a comfortable king size bed. The room was quiet and comfortable. On check-in we weren't told there was breakfast provided, but there was and it was very nice with hot food items. The gentleman running the front desk and the breakfast area often seemed overwhelmed trying to keep up with filling the food bins, but he did his best and was friendly and helpful. All in all, a very nice experience that was made sweeter by the reasonable price.

Last minute stay, on a long road trip, the price was twice as a Best Western in Sevierville TN, the fee for my pet was only $10.00, that seems to be standard with Best Western. Lots of place to walk the dog, and bring your own dog bags. The a/c unit had a loud noise, keeping me up. I should have called the manager, but did not want to wake them up. Yes its their job, but I could not. Took extra sleeping pill, and muddled through the noise, realizing it could be worse. Upon check out, he removed the pet fee. All hotels need to periodically check all aspects of the hotel rooms out, including the low battery on the smoke alarm in the empty room next to us, beep...beep, all night. If I been able to plan ahead, there would have been a better rate, but one can not always do that on a long road trip. I stayed at three Best Westerns on this latest road trip. The final night, we found a Comfort Inn, in Paul's Bluff OK, much better, same price, and NO noise. Sorry Best Western, three strikes and you out. You have great employees, just not great rooms. They all need a major redo. It would be as asset to redo your inns, and a great way to market, and get people back. Glad to be home. p.s. bring soap and shampoo, they supply very tiny packages, enough for half a person.

Room Tip: far end, and ask to away from smoker rooms, we were in a non smoking room, but the people near us in...

Very nice, clean motel in a very small town off of I-44. Additional charge of $10.00 for pets. Very nice, clean breakfast nook. Front desk service was friendly and helpful. This small one story motel was a great value.

This is an old fiftys motel that BW must have taken over. It was small and needs updating and a good cleaning. People were nice, but was very dissapointed in the room. One of the few times we have stayed in a BW so hope otheres are better.
Would stay away from this one.

Our room was large, but could use some updating. The carpet is worn and the sheets and blankets are short. There is enough grass at the end and behind the motel to walk the dogs. It is a well lit parking lot.
