I have stayed here many times because of its convenience in walking across the street to concerts. I spent two nights here, and will absolutely NEVER make that mistake again. This was by far the worst hotel stay of my life. The room REEKED of cigarette smoke, even when there are non-smoking signs all over everywhere. We immediately called asking to switch rooms but were told there was nothing else available. The room was dirty - my feet were literally black from walking on the floor. There was mold and mildew in every nook and cranny. Lamps and furniture were broken or not working, sheets and towels had stains, and the paint was peeling from the ceiling and walls. There were BUGS crawling out of the walls in the bathroom! Seriously, pay the extra $50 and stay at Holiday Inn next door. This place was NOT worth saving a few bucks.

This place looks no where near what the pictures showed. It smelled so bad in the room. Not sure if it was mold or what it was on the roof but it was DISGUSTING! Was able to get the second night stay canceled. Booked a different hotel much nicer for even less.

Arrived and was given a second floor room after booking and paying extra for first floor. After requesting the room I had booked, I was given a first floor room that reeked of cigarettes. I was told that there were no more first floor rooms. I told the front desk person I would take a second floor room at that point. The door to that room would not open. Then I was given a different first floor room that also smelled of smoke but not nearly as badly as the other one. So I took that room. Besides smelling of smoke, the ceiling was moldy and water damaged, there was no iron or coffee maker, and the AC barely worked. I had to was all of the clothes in my suitcase including the clean ones because they stank from the smoke smell in the room. After staying in a lovely cleanRed Roof Inn in Johnson City TN I decided maybe Red Roof Inns were okay. This one certainly was not okay.

I went against my better judgment, and decided to stay at this hotel for one night. Big mistake. My room smelled like a dog had been living in there alone for a long time, and there was not enough Febreze to get rid of that odor. The floor looks like it hadn't been cleaned in a month. Also, it's not exactly in the best area. Plenty of shady looking people hanging around, I don't know about you, but, I don't like people staring at me when I'm outside smoking a cigarette. Definitely not staying here again.

Looking for a safe weekend getaway? Well, you’ve come to the wrong place! This motel is located right next door to the trashy wannabe Hooters. Pulled up to see 2 men smoking weed next to the lobby. When I went to sign in, another worker walked up to the counter and asked if anyone else was staying with me? She told me that SHE would stay with me.. yikes! The website advertised our room to be smoke-free. When we entered our room, it was permeated with the smell of SMOKE! We were also advertised a coffee maker being in the room. False information. Between the wannabe hooters, the weed, being hit on in the front lobby, the smoke induced room, and NO COFFEE MAKER.... hard pass. If I were you, I’d stay somewhere else.
