Don't stay here... I'm going to have to burn everything I brought. The dirtiest hotel room I've ever seen. Roaches in the bathroom. Disgusting. The guy at the front desk overcharged us after getting a quote on the phone it ended up being well over our discussed price.

The office was nice. A so called "christian" man rented us a room. My first impression was that it was a cozy gatinburg setting. O boy was I wrong. Our stay ended with fighting roaches & came home only to make Dr appointments to get rid of bed bugs & treat our many bed bug bites. Our vacation was ruined....

Hotel does need a major make over replacing some things to freshen up but its still a decent hotel close to downtown. The pool was not open for the season at the time we stayed. The staff there is very nice and observant of what goes on. We felt safe at all times. Will definitely stay here again.

I am hiking the AT with my husband. We were picked up at Newfound Gap by a friendly AT maintainance volunteer and dropped off at the Grand Prix. I saw that the place was full of AT hikers so we decided to give it a try. The owner was welcoming and gave us the unbelievable low hiker rate. A rate...

We hitched from Newfound Gap into town in the rain around 7pm. the front desk was courteous and had our maildrop ready to pickup. The hiker rate was excellent. the laundry room was nearly new. The room was...

This is the worst place in the world to stay !! The room stunk like a whole football team had practice in there and never showered, Which they couldn't have because there was only one towel in the bath room and there was a shower head but no shower. The heated pool was drained so there couldn't have been any...

We are backpackers and were headed to the smokies. Because of an unexpected I-75 closure, we arrived too late to head out on the trail. It was Saturday and the area was PACKED. We ended up here because we have pretty low standards when it comes to accommodation [I mean, we're people who voluntarily live in the woods for a...

We asked for a none smoking room. The door had a non smoking sign on it, but the room smelled like the crappy place it was. Our jack russell would not even stay on the floor. You know you are in trouble when you find a sack of garlic hanging over the door, supposedly to the kitchenette, which had a...

The pictures! There's no way, NO WAY that these are the rooms listed on the web site. Totally different layout. Bed bugs and bed bug feces behind the unattached head board. If you can imagine a motel rented by the hour this is it, And it has a for sale sign on it. To add the the nightmare they tell...
