Room was very nice. Good size. Location is right off the interstate. Short drive time to the mall and restaurants . Staff was nice and friendly. Had a small maintenance issue, called the front desk, it was fixed within 30 minutes.

This is a typical roadside hotel. It was clean & quiet with a minimal breakfast. We stayed here during Hurricane Mathew and pretty much every hotel east of here was booked up. There were 6 of us on a motorcycle trip heading home. We started looking for rooms in Chattanooga, TN and this was the first available we could find....

Limited service was very good. Reception was vey helpful. Hotel was bare bones- no pool, small towels. We were there on bid day/move-in weekend when everything is sold out and it worked. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Easy access to campus.

This in itself was a scary site. I felt very unsecure even...

We hadn't stay in a Howard Johnson for years and it was the nicest motel we stayed in while on our trip. Staff was friendly, rooms clean and comfortable. A nice breakfast and a very reasonable rate. When back that way we will stay at it again.

I don't mind staying in a low budget place - I can do without the amenities if the place is clean. There was trash in the areas where there was grass (weeds) which happened to be about 8-10 inches tall. The place smelled in every area I passed through. I will say the young woman at the reception was very...
