Welcome to Newport Tennessee a nice town in Cocke County and on the way to the Great Smokey Mountains. If you are looking for a place to stay, you have come to the right place. Here are my top places to stay.

There is the pizza joint or Ruby Tuesdays, also a friendly tavern on all within walking distance. They also offer breakfast of fresh scrambled eggs, sausage, and gravy.

Offers guest the convenience of a great breakfast with several selections, a nice weight room and a great pool to cool off in after a strenuous work. HIE is centrally located of Highway 40, and within walking distance (but far enough away to avoid the noise) from several restaurants, and a nightclub.

Motel 6– located at 255 Heritage Blvd, I-40 at Exit #435, Newport, TN- A reasonably priced hotel for guests passing through on their way to the Great Smokey Mountains. Rooms are clean and comfortable. If you have pets, they are welcome to stay. If you are looking for a quitter atmosphere, book a room on the third floor where no pets or smoking is allowed and there is no one above you. The low price dictates you bring your own bathing soaps, shampoos and conditioners. If you require a hairdryer, you will need to supply that as well. Overall, the preference is comparable to others in the area.
