The staff here are very helpful and friendly. It is an older hotel and the carpets are worn, but the rooms are cleaner than a lot of four and five star places that I have stayed. The beds are very comfy with new pillows, linens and duvets. The free breakfast was very good with a lot to choose from. Thanks...

PRO: When you check in they ask for your contact credentials so if you leave something in your room they can mail it to you. They had hot breakfast. CONS: But the room itself was pretty average, the TV did not have access to Disney, Nickelodeon, Cartoon Network..etc. its just HBO. The shower did not have any pressure so you...

I travel all around this world. I live out of hotels and I have never stayed at a place as nasty as this. Terrible experience. The carpet in the elevator and rooms look like they have never been cleaned. It was hair in the bed as well as my bathroom. I wouldn't advice anyone to spend their money at this...

From the time we walked in we were impressed. Check in staff was very friendly, lobby was nice. Our room was spotless and spacious. Clean bathroom (shower drained very slowly but front desk staff said they would get it looked at). Comfy bed. Great hot/cold free breakfast including waffles, French toast, omelets, oatmeal, grits, fruit, yogurt, cereal, bagels/breads, bacon, hard...

We brought grandkids to see the local tourist attractions. I was very disappointed in the size of the room and bathroom. The carpet was dirty all over the motel including our room. I did not like the smell of the room when I first got there but I think it was probably some kind of carpet freshener but it didn't...

Thank you for sharing your thoughts on the hotel with us and other travelers. I am sorry you did not find quite what you were looking for in the size of the room, they are pretty much a standard size hotel room compared to others I have run. I wish you would have let us show you another room so...

Traveling from Gatlinburg back to Florida and stopped in Chattanooga for the evening. King bed was comfortable, nice pillows, sheets and duvet cover. A/C worked well and the room was clean. Nice, large flat screen LG tv. There was not a microwave or mini fridge in our room. No fan in the bathroom which is a pet peeve but this...

We arrived around 11:30 pm. Tired from driving all day. When I walked in the desk clerk(Justin) had a big smile and said "welcome ma'am". He was very knowledgeable. Beds were so comfortable, warm showers, great selection of breakfast foods and friendly employees. We will definitely stay here again when in the area.

We are so glad you found a great refuge after a long day on the road.
