Spilled a little water and when I wiped it up with the rag of a towel it was filthy. Fake hardwood needs to be washed periodically, hello! Towels are not worthy of being rags, but they could second as a loofa if you forgot yours. Haven't slept on a totally worn out mattress and box springs lately? Here's your chance!...

This is probably one of the best Motel 6's I have stayed at. The staff is friendly and keeps the place clean. It's very accessible to Interstate 75 and just about halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga. Enjoy!

It is a no frills, budget motel. It was clean, exactly how it is advertised and affordable. We were in the area for rafting and going to the caves. It was perfect for that, close to both and perfect for retiring at the end of the night for sleeping. There is not a common area, if you do want to...

Room and property were in good shape ... everything worked as it should. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only '-' is that no breakfast was offered, unlike most of the hotels in the area. Would recommend and stay again.

Had to go ahead and give them an excellent review - it was deserved. Service was great, hotel clean, bed was comfortable, as were the pillows. Refrigerator/microwave included. While I stayed just one night, could see staying multiple nights here. The only possible complaint I could have was that while the shower pressure was strong, the water pressure in the...
