I had been driving for 8 hours and couldn't find a hotel that would accept pets so pulled off at the Jellico TN exit off of I-75. The office isn't connected to the motel so the clerk wouldn't allow me to look at the room before I paid. Somethin' about insurance. I guess they're afraid somebody might steal the 1970's towels!
The room was as expected. it needed updating but the carpet was fairly new. The bathroom had been updated in the last 5 years and the tv was on the newer side. The pool was large and clean and so was the jacuzzi. The blankets had holes in them and the bed spreads were NOT clean! The room had a slight cigarette smell but it was a smoking, pet room so it was expected.
A small restaurant was attached to the office and the food was good and a good value. The staff was friendly and helpful. I'll admit I was afraid once it got dark but the parking area is well lit and only a few people were staying there. I ran into them while sitting at the pool and they were very nice so that put me at ease.
I would only recommend this motel if you are really desperate for a place to stay.
