We were looking for a hotel close to Neyland Stadium for the game, and this came up. When we first arrived to our smoke free room and went inside, my eyes never stopped burning and the smell of smoke/mold lingered. The microwave looked like someone was cooking up something other than food and it exploded. Until 3 in the morning...

While the front desk clerk was extremely pleasant and helpful, this place is down right scary! The bed was comfortable enough and the t.v. worked, but with stains on the sheets, air conditioner leaking water all over the floor and a shower that sprayed water everywhere except on me, it was no surprise to hear other guests the next morning...

The Breakfast was good and the lady in the office at that time was very sweet. My room was downstairs and was clean smelled fine and was comfortable. On the other hand the lady who was in the office closer to evening time was extremely rude, unclean and to beat it all was a bigger lady and didn't wear a...

At $34 a night I expected some issues but the place was clean, quiet and the staff friendly. The bed was more comfortable than the hotel I stayed at last week in Orlando at twice the price. I was given a...

Upon arrival to the express in, we were incredibly skeptical about the quality, cleanliness, and our own safety. It is difficult to describe what we actually saw in order to paint you a proper picture of what the word disgusting truly embodies. What hit us first, was the smell of something clearly dead for weeks or food rotting that may...

the front Desk LADY is super NICE, but the room has no light, tissues, filthy bathroom, AC sound is strange, Had to switch the room to connect internet. Stay if you don,t find place elsewhere. I am just no pleased with the over all room Quality. However it was convenient and close to 75.
