Anniversary weekend trip
December 03, 2019

What a great stay!!! My husband and I checked in on nov.29th out dec 1st. The inn honored our accommodations of placing us in a room away from any possible commotion. The room was really clean 👍, the king suite had a wonderful big, comfy bed. We ate a continental breakfast- waffles, oatmeal, milk , juice, bagels, etc.. I also noticed a sign stating Pet Friendly 🐱🐶 They were at our service for whatever we needed. Our team member was Ireen. A+++

Nothing Fancy
October 13, 2019

The place was clean, a little dated. No pool, breakfast was not that good, Bagels were not that fresh, they had premade egg patties that you heat thanks. Several restaurants near by. We took the Tennessee Valley Train which was right up the street, so location of Inn was good.

Comfortable, clean but poor breakfast.

Check in went smoothly on my second visit. First visit no one answered the front desk bell after ringing it several times. The room was clean and bathroom was large but amenities and towels were minimal. No carpet flooring may be cleaner but not soft and no bedside rug or slippers. Breakfast needs a major overall. Cold egg patties needed heating but only plates and bowls available were styrofoam which releases toxic chemicals when heated in a microwave. It was also a problem when heating oatmeal. Only one fruit selection. Syrup for pancakes was served out of the gallon container it came in. Coffee cups were very small plain styrofoam cups. First place I’ve ever stayed that left an envelope to “tip” the maid. Maybe hotel needs to pay more and charge more. Someone needs training in presentation. The clerks were all very nice.

Best Hospitality!!!

We were in town July 17, 2019 - July 21, 2019 for my sons wedding. The moment we walked into this hotel, the staff and the beautiful lobby area were very welcoming. The staff made our stay that much better. The hotel is clean and nice and pet friendly for those that travel with their fur babies. The rooms were nice and big. I cannot say enough about the family that runs this hotel and their hospitality while we were there. Kudos to Art, AJ and the rest of their family and staff. They helped us in so many ways while we were there for the wedding and made our time there very enjoyable. I would stay there again and recommend for anyone to stay there.

Nice clean modern hotel. Got a good night's sleep. Good wifi. Good lighting in rooms. Good area out back for dog walking. Plenty of handicap parking. I've seen better breakfasts at other hotels but it was ok. Very satisfied with our stay.
