We stayed 5 nights here during the week prior to Shades of the Past, staying Sept 2 through 6. We've stayed here previously in past years. The owners are friendly and welcoming true to Tennessee folk. The room was quiet, clean and comfortable with a fridge and older microwave. It is located close to restaurants and attractions and you could walk to many of them. . We had a room with a king size bed but the bottom sheet was not fitted, and appeared to be a queen size flat sheet turned sideways in order to "fit" the bed, as was the top sheet. The sheets were always coming off the bed and getting tangled, etc, because of it. Room was a reasonable price for non-weekend or holiday/special event nights which was $35 per night, but went up to $75 for the weekend and over $100 for special events such as Shades of the Past. I guess supply and demand is suppose to justify charging higher rates for the rooms which are long overdue for some updating. The only thing I can see that has been updated since we first stayed there is that the waterbeds have been replaced with regular beds. There is an elevator which makes all floors accessible for the handicapped. The elevator broke down once during our stay. If you need ice for your room, it is available for 25 cents from the ice machine located next to the pop machine at the bottom of the stairs. Be sure to bring your own blow dryer as there is not one in the room like most hotels. There is an outdoor pool and jacuzzi. If you are just looking for a place to rest your head at night and don't mind spending $75 or more a night and not spend a lot of time in your room, then this hotel will probably suit your needs. We are rating this hotel 3 out of 5 because of the cost per night for a hotel that really needs some updating and because they have tried to cut costs by trying to make queen sheets fit onto a king size bed, unsuccessfully.
