After our miserable Thanksgiving experience at the new AmericInn in nearby Jonesborough, TN, we would have been happy to stay anywhere else. We chose the Comfort Suites for it's close proximity to I-26 and for being one exit down from the Jonesborough exit (making it easy to visit our family members there).
What a nice surprise the Comfort Suites was! We had the standard king suite with the partial dividing wall. The room's architecture and design was very attractive. The bed was one of the most comfortable hotel beds I've ever slept in (even compared to the upscale chains). We appreciated that management doesn't try to nickle and dime their guests by charging for internet. Free internet is always a plus! And the room rate was very affordable. You might be able to get a cheaper rate if you book directly through the Comfort Suites website. I normally doublecheck with Orbitz/Travelocity/Expedia, but the hotel site beat their prices. You will also have a greater selection of room layouts through the hotel website.
I have two minor cons about the hotel. The breakfast bar was nearly wiped out when I went down about 9AM. It was a holiday, not a workday, so I didn't think that was unreasonably late. They do have make-your-own Belgian waffles, so that made my hubby happy at least. Some bagels and/or cereal would be appreciated (unless I was just too late to get any).
The second minor drawback is having a room on the side facing Logan's Roadhouse. They left the music on through their outdoor speakers all night, and we could hear it very clearly in the room. Be sure to ask for a room on the other side of the building. Also be sure to ask for a room away from the 1st floor side entrance. If not, you'll be hearing guests returning during the wee hours of the night.
All in all, I was happy with the stay and I would definitely stay here again.
