Better to stay in Sweetwater or elsewhere?

I will be traveling to Sweetwater to see the Lost Sea this spring. All the lodgings have very similar rates posted. Is one actually any better than the other? Please recommend, or tell me a nearby city that has a nice place to stay. Thanks!

Out of the 7 or 8 in Sweetwater I believe the Quality Inn is the newest. It's not been open very long. There's a Cracker Barrel close by.

Or, you can get on Hwy 68 going toward the Lost Sea. Go about 10 minutes past it and you will come to Madisonville. There are a couple of hotels there also. The Lost Sea is about 1/2 way between the two cities. Personally, I think I would choose Sweetwater. The hotels are basically beside Interstate 75.

For either place, there's not much around to do.

Next time, try Best Value Inn. Ex 60 (Hwy 68) up on the hill behind Burger King. You can,t beat the view.
