The staff here was very nice! The room was comfortable enough for one person, and the price was reasonable. I believe this hotel is relatively new, having been completely renovated from a previous building. I was very pleased that they had smoking rooms available. All in all though, it was a nice stay.

Nice property great location. Cracker Barrel, Hooters, Starbucks right next door. Easy access off freeway, room to park an RV. Room was well maintained and stocked. Looks newly remodeled in the living/kitchen/sleeping area. Bathroom had plenty soft towels but was a little rough. Looks like they started to remodel bath but didn't finish. Kitchen has full size fridge, coffee pot,...

My husband and I visited TN for Christmas and stayed here for 4 nights. Room was spacious and the mattress was comfy. The reason for the four stars is due to housekeeping and breakfast. You have to take out your own trash and go to the lobby to ask for towels (unless you stay for a whole week) as the...

We chose the MainStay Suites for 3 reasons. 1) It had kitchenettes and decent size rooms. 2) It was close to restaurants and not too far from campus. 3) It was priced appropriately. We were greeted by a friendly lady who checked us in. The hotel and our room were clean. The breakfast options were great, something for everyone's liking....

Good spot to rest and find something to eat. The room was spacious. The hot breakfast was not special, but got me off to a good start of the day. The evening desk attendant was very helpful, as I had trouble with the Choice Hotels website.

I stayed in a king room with a separate living area and it was great. Very spacious, full-size refrigerator and lots more. Although the carpeting looks a bit old, the room itself was fine. Great bedding on aBreakfast is a bit sub-par compared to other hotel stays. The staff is super friendly and that makes up for the poor breakfast.

The room we received did seem a bit dated but you can tell the hotel does its best to keep the conditions nice for the guest. We were able to secure a room big enough for our family and if you ask you can get the rooms with fridge and two burners which saves a ton of $$ when its...

Everything was great. Nice staff, clean room free WiFi, Free Breakfast. Right next door to Cracker Barrel, our favorite place to eat . It was a little off of the beaten path but the price was right so I booked it.
