My wife and I stayed at this place for 3 nights, it was a terrible choice. Pole lamp did not work, no smoke detector in room, half of popcorn ceiling was been removed, which might have exposed us to asbestos, vanity sink leaked water all over the place. He said it was ok for my two granddaughters to come over... More

Fast wifi not that slow crap other hotels offer. Cleans rooms that working men can afford. The lowest weekly rate in the area. You can leave valuables in the room and not worry about being stolen because owner keeps a close watch on activities. I have stayed at this hotel 15 months over the last 5 years.

My family and I are traveling back home to Kentucky and decided to stop for the night. We tried several hotels, but they were out of our price range. The Homestead Inn in Athens, Tn. was in our price range and I'm am glad that we stopped. There is no pool or breakfast or anything, but for $50 dollars for... More

I am a union craftsman and stay in many hotels around the country and this is BY FAR the worst place I have stayed! The owner, BOBBY, is very rude and was unwilling to answer my questions as to why there was blood on the sheets, and not to mention, what looked to be a pipe for smoking crack or... More

To be honest, all I was looking for was a shower and some sleep after getting put behind schedule in an Atlanta traffic mess. We checked in late with no reservation on a holiday weekend and left early the next day. The room was nothing fancy, could use some updating and some maintenance, but otherwise was fairly clean. The fridge... More

I saw lots of handicapped and blind people. Many bikers. It's about 1 hour from the Cherohala parkway! 5 minutes to the best Goodwill store in TN!! Baby boomers you will love Mr. Bobby. He will kick you out if your room is dirty. Great rates he charges for pets & 2ndperson.

This place was terrible, Dirty, unfinished ceiling, no phone, lights bulbs that were missing/burnt out. This is the 3rd hotel that, when I walk in the front door, I find that it is locked. Then from another room the owner comes running around to unlock the door. The hotels are all the same.
