Enjoyed our stay over race weekend at Bristol Motor Speedway. So comfortable, such great staff, clean, huge nice bed. Tried to get into spa but they were booked 😞 which was the only downside to stay.

HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 26 January 2017 via mobile

My brother told me this was a beautiful hotel and I reviewed it on line but the pictures didn't even begin to do justice to this hotel. My brother also enjoyed camping in his youth which already made his judgement suspect in my mind. I love nature but after enjoying it, I want a real bed! We were on our...

We stayed 2 nights and while we were doing some fly fishing on a local river. The hotel staff are really friendly, and the beds are super comfortable. The hotel restaurant has an amazing deconstructed beef Wellington and even better Martini. Will definitely stay here again!

This hotel is amazing. The restaurant had delicious food and the service was outstanding. The spa was worth every penny! I highly recommend Lindsey for facials. The rooms are incredible. The beds are very comfortable and the bathrooms are amazing (they have a separate bathtub and shower). The staff is always friendly and helpful. I won't stay anywhere else.

After a brief stop in Pennsylvania and Virginia we arrived in a college town in Tennessee. I trusted the hotel would be OK, it was my husband's pick, because it fit well with the rest of our journey. When we arrived I was completely taken back and very pleasantly surprised. Walked in through the brass trimmed revolving door (restored from...

Since my last visit in 2013, I upgraded it a star. The room was in lovely condition, and many of the issues that I had previously were not the case on this visit. (I stayed in a no frills motel the night before this time, so by comparison it was marvelous.) The room is pretty and large. The bathroom is...

Our room (disclaimer: the room was comp'd by nearby ETSU while I was officiating weekend tennis matches) was large and excellent, with queen-size sleigh beds and overstuffed chairs, nice desk, hidden fridge, and great bathroom -- separate tub and shower. Everything was spotless, the staff was friendly and helpful. The only thing that prevented the 5th star is the noise......

I spent one day in this structure and I can ensure you it is really nice, the jazz background music is adorable, rooms are spacious and clean, staff is very kind. The only problem was the breakfast not a great variety, maybe I would have expected less if I had not read the other reviews about it.
