Conveniently located off I-75 halfway between Knoxville and Chattanooga, the Hampton Inn Athens hotel is close to dining, shopping and entertainment. Our Athens, TN hotel is a short drive from the Great Smokey Mountains, Watts Bar Lake and the Cherokee National Forest. Explore the Lost Sea, America’s largest underground lake. While there, stroll through an 18th century village or explore huge caverns.
Take an informative tour of Mayfield Dairy Farms. Enjoy an afternoon of wine tasting at nearby Strikers Winery. Trace the history of Southeast Tennessee at the Living Heritage Museum. Take a campus tour or attend an event at Tennessee Wesleyan College. Plan day trips to Knoxville or Chattanooga. Both of these vibrant cities are just 40 miles from our hotel in Athens.
