We stayed here night 3 traveling cross country and back again. We were booked to stay here on the return but I canceled my booking and booked next door at the Motel 8 (a different review). My husband felt the room/stay was ok for what we paid but I did not want to return. It was clean but not quiet... More

I selected this hotel based on ratings from previous guests - what a mistake! I booked a room online for $43.99 for one night. When I arrived, the sign said $39.99. So the desk clerk tried to make me pay $48.99. I had to wait for my confirmation email to pull up before she would allow me to pay the... More

This is a no frills kind of place, but it was clean, priced right and the staff was very friendly. Not much for amenities and the breakfast was rather basic, but for a night or two it is fine. It's located close to food, gas, the highwsy etc. We'll stay there again when in the area.

This is not a luxury hotel, but price is great! Rooms/beds are clean and adequate. Location is right off the interstate. Breakfast is adequate, staff is very friendly. So glad that this hotel is affordable for families. We didn't mind staying out a little further and avoid the high prices in the Pigeon Forge/Dollywood area. Will definitely stay here again!

This motel was previously reviewed by me with horrible grades. My main complaints focused on the lack of cleanliness, service and "sweet bouquet" all-in-one soap and shampoo. I also was critical of the breakfast. This time matters were significantly better. The front desk staff was immediately helpful. The corridors and rooms were spectacularly clean. Although the "sweet bouquet" remained, the... More

A good choice. Right off the highway but quiet inside. The room is nice and there are restaurants nearby. Perfect for families visiting Carson-Newman University. Breakfast was not bad either. There is a Shoney's down the hill from the restaurant and also a WEndy's restaurant or maybe it was a Hardy's.

Everything else was booked, so we stayed here. It was clean, quiet and safe. So all was good. It was not an amazing place like some of the others, but you get what you pay for. People were nice. Bed was comfortable enough for a hotel.

Make your reservations on the hotel website for $39 during the week, $58 on Priceline! They jack the price to $100 on weekend. They accept pets for another $10/ni Second person, if you claim them, is another $5/night. If you're a sensible cheapskate, this place is perfectly adequate and clean.

Overall, Jefferson Inn was a great place to stay. Plenty of things to do within a short driving distance (Douglas Lake, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg), several restaurants, convenience store and grocery store close by. Everything in the room was in working order (air conditioning, television, refrigerator, microwave, etc.) and the wifi connection was decent. Our only complaint was the mattress was... More
