4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 9 August 2012

We stayed there twice in July. The location was close to everything but far enough from the interstate to get a quiet nights sleep. Avoid a room close to the exit doors on the north and south ends of the bldg if you are a light sleeper. The fist time Tammy who checked us in, mentioned that they had a full house the night before and wanted to be sure our room was clean. The room was as advertised and the price was good. We saw Wendy (again) at checkout and she reserved a room for our return trip. On our second stay a couple of days later check in was quick. The man who checked us in held the door for me as I unloaded my truck. They actually held two rooms for me but actually gave us a handicapped accessible room which was larger. I think Wendy was aware of some health issues we had. The AC unit in this room needed a new filter because there was noticeable odor when the unit was on and the lobby was still a little smoky, but based on value I would stay there again.

Me and my husband stayed at this hotel because we were offered a free night stay for a bad experience that we encountered a few weeks before at another Motel 6 in Johnson City, TN. The room was good for the price and the front desk was ok. We stayed up most of the night but when we woke up the next morning my husband had numerous of bites over his arms and legs and a few on his back. We informed the front desk and the only response we got was it could be fleas or bed bugs. We called the customer service number who took a report. They informed us not to talk to the Motel directly but to let them handle it. Two days ago I got a letter in the mail stating that since it was privately owned they could do nothing. My husband went to the hospital were it was determined that his bites were caused by bed bugs. We will NOT be staying at this hotel as since kknowing they have bed bugs and still did nothing to inform the guests.

Room Tip: Do not get a smoking room!!!!!!!!!!!

We have conducted all the necessary measures to check if there were any bed bugs in the room. After our pest control technician inspected the room, and found no signs of bed bugs or any other type of incsects. We do not know what could have bitten your boyfriend. Please know that we value you as our guest and appreciate your business.

The Motel 6 in Bristol is a great hotel for people passing through the area! It is right off I-81 and is close to all kinds of major restaurants including IHOP, Perkins, Wendy's, etc. It is only about 5 miles from the Tennessee state line and only a few minutes from the Speedway, Bristol Mall, and Interstate 381.

The rooms are very nice! Soft beds, spacious bathrooms, and vibrant colors all add to the comfort of this hotel. There is an elevator, vending machines, and complimentary coffee in the lobby each morning. The rates are very good and of course, all discounts (AAA, AARP, etc.) are offered.

If you are passing through the Bristol area and need a place to crash for a night or two, make Motel 6 your one and only stop.

I stayed here on the advice of my fellow tripadvisors and have to wonder, WHAT WERE YOU THINKING? We were travelling with our dog and looking for a dog friendly hotel. The woman who checked us in was delightful--very warm and welcoming. The room was very clean and that's where my positives stop. The TV was attached to the wall, the walls were concrete and the floors were laminate. My husband thought it had a prison-like feel to it. The dog was nervous because of all of the noise in the hall and paced all night with toenails clicking. It was awful. The next night we stayed at the La Quinta which also accepts dogs and found it to be much more comfortable and cheaper.

On a recent trip from Patzcaro, Mexico to Nova Scotia I stayed in multiple Motel 6 properties and the Bristol, VA. location is one of their best. It is excellently located just off the I 81 and is extremely accessible. The rooms are very clean, safe and outfitted with a fridge, microwave, excellent quality free WIFI and even a flat screen TV. If you are looking for 4 or 5 star amenities then this is not the right hotel for you but if you want simple, clean and convenient then this is definitely for you. There is a huge shopping centre near by as well as numerous eateries.

Room Tip: Any room is a good choice. The hotel is set back far enough from the highway to avoid noise at nigh...

After a long day of driving from Arkansas, we were absolutely determined to get through Tennessee before stopping for the day. Bristol, Virginia was just over the state line, so we made for it. The Motel 6 wasn't our first choice, but it had vacancies and it was pretty cheap. For two young(ish) guys to crash for the night, it was fine. Parking lot was well lit and freshly paved. The late-night guy at the desk didn't seem too thrilled to see us but he grudgingly got us checked in. Room was clean and reasonably new. Looks like the whole place has had a recent makeover. The renovation was a little slapdash, though; there was an electrical outlet with no cover plate, and the bathroom door didn't close (the doorknob was about 1/4" too low for the jamb). We didn't really care, but I can certainly see how someone else - women in particular - might have a problem with that. Toiletries were pretty okay. The place was quiet enough that we got a good sleep and were up and out early in the morning. The morning desk guy (he HAS to be the night guy's brother) was much more cheerful. Good place to stop when you just HAVE to get the hell out of Tennessee.
