Cheap Hotel Recommendations in the Newport, TN area
I will be riding my wife's XCT from Michigan to its/our new home in Hendersonville, NC this coming weekend. My route is superslab the whole way as this is not a sight-seeing or pleasure trip. I will take I75 south to Knoxville, then I40 east to I26 south. If it is not raining, I will leave Midland, MI early on Saturday, Oct. 7 and go about 700 miles and probably stay near Newport, TN - give or take 100 miles. Then on Sunday, I will go the rest of the way to Hendersonville in the morning. If it is raining, I will leave Friday and ride for ~5 hrs to near Dayton. Then on Saturday, I will ride from near Dayton to maybe Newport, TN or, preferably somewhere further - say maybe around Clyde, NC or maybe even the west side of Asheville. There is no benefit to me getting to Hendersonville on Saturday since I have no place to stay there. Then on Sunday, I will take the bike to the place I will be storing it for the month until we move there, leave it, get a ride to the airport, and leave on a business trip around 1:00 Sunday from Asheville.
So, with all that background, I have two questions about hotel recommendations.
1) Do any of you have experience with a cheap hotel around the Newport, TN area? All I need is a place to put my head for the night. I don't care much about fanciness. All I really care about is not catching some disease or bringing home bedbugs.
2) Any recommendations for the same type of hotel in the Clyde, NC to Asheville area?
Thanks for any advice you can offer.
