I am a regular traveler and have NEVER before left a hotel after checking in, but after a couple hours at the Alpine Lodge, I ran--and ate the $$. Holy Cow. This place is FILTHY. The sheets were clean and the bathroom was relatively clean, but everything else was absolutely untouchable. I mean, the TV remote control was even disgusting. Everything--the floor, walls, furniture (including the chair) was visibly filthy, filthy, filthy. I have never, ever seen anything like it at a hotel. The worst thing, though, was that I felt very unsafe--the door didn't lock properly, and the other guests in the hotel were...well, frankly, I was actually scared for my safety. The woman working the desk was nice enough, but honestly, if I could give this hotel zero stars I would. I absolutely cannot believe ANY of the positive reviews this hotel has gotten--makes me wonder who on earth wrote them. I do not know where on earth the pictures on the site come from--they do not at all look like the room I got (maybe they are from the "suite" side??). I am not picky about hotels and I have never have been compelled to write a review. Some places are better than others, and I roll with the punches. But this place????? NO WAY. RUN RUN RUN RUN.
If you're heading west, drive the extra 30 minutes and stay at the Quality Inn in Lebanon, TN, where the service is great, the rooms are spotless, and the fee is only $10 more.
