Best Places to Stay
The best all around hotel to stay
The Best Western Plus Lawrenceburg
Our top pick for the best all-around place to stay in Lawrence County is the award winning Best Western Plus in Lawrenceburg, Tennessee! This hotel is a newly constructed hotel that opened in 2021 and has plenty of features to offer! The location is at the northern edge of town, close to Ethridge, which makes getting to a wagon tour very easy! It is also on the right side of Highway 43 South so getting back to your room is easy to navigate! The hotel is back away from the road, so you don't hear the road noises while you sleep, and the entrance is closed to traffic, so kids can play without much chance of being in danger from outside traffic!
The indoor pool is great for year-round travel in any season. Please book your room as soon as you plan your vacation here! This hotel stays booked up, and there may not be a room for you during the peak growing season when kids are out of school and the Amish tours are running, so book your room as soon as you can!
Locals own this chain hotel, but you must use the online form to book your hotel room. You can see all the amenities they offer and their indoor pool on their page!
The best place for quiet, luxury, and southern charm!
Winnie's Bed and Breakfast
Have you ever wanted to get away and relax? Where nobody even knows you are staying? Winnie's Bed and Breakfast is just the place for a person or couple who wants to get away and stay in a more luxuriously appointed place with great food and accommodations! One of the best restaurants in Lawrenceburg is just across the street, and Winnie can make you a specialty breakfast or lunch with coffee and fine tea as you look out on your private balcony at the four white horses and creek that runs just down from the farm!
*No smoking and no pets of any kind are allowed, and kids 10 and under would be better suited at a hotel as this B&B is more for adults who want tranquility and quiet. Check-in is at 3 pm, and check-out is 11 am.

Right across the road from Marshall's Grocery is the Amish Lodge. This two-bedroom, one-bath home used to be a convention center and has been converted into one of our top recommendations for visitors traveling with children. Wood panels cover the walls, and a sealed concrete floor helps keep the place clean, as kids can play games inside or on the dead-end street that ends in your own parking lot! The large kitchen has laundry room equipment to help you head out with clean clothes after a day at the Amish farms. The Lodge even has a ping pong table and other games to play at night or when the rain comes in. The outdoor area has a wood-burning fireplace for roasting hot dogs or s'mores!
The Amish Lodge
You can hear the sound of horses' hooves on the pavement from the Amish Lodge. You can nearly walk up to the Amish country area from the lodge parking lot. Across the street is Marshall's Grocery, where you can get gas and breakfast before a morning wagon ride or day into the Amish countryside! The Ethridge police department and the Butter Bean Cafe are just down the road where the locals go to eat! You book the Amish Lodge from the Airbnb website that holds the information about the lodge. See the link below that takes you right to the page you need!

The Cabins at David Crockett State Park
These seven LEED-certified cabins host two bedrooms, a full kitchen, and a living area that could sleep more if needed. Some also have a balcony overlooking Lindsey Lake and are within walking distance of the large Crockett's Mill Restaurant that offers quality cooking of Southern favorites. Pets are allowed in cabin number six, and an additional $20 per pet per night fee is applied when booking your pets. These cabins require a minimum of two nights or more to book, which is perfect for most adventures in Lawrence County. David Crockett State Park is an excellent place for outdoor activities and has two waterfalls and miles of hiking trails. The original Trail of Tears is here with a verified section that is still dirt where you can walk on the same trail!
These cabins can be rented years in advance so book your cabin as soon as you can to make sure you get your cabin.

Giles County (Pulaski, Tennessee)
The Hampton Inn
For those coming from Interstate 65, you will get onto Highway 64 East and see the Hampton Inn on the edge of Pulaski. This hotel is excellent and has an outdoor pool with restaurants within walking distance for around the $100-$170 per night price range. You'll be away from the road enough for a good night's sleep and beside a Walmart, if you need to pick up something before you get on your way.
Enter your address into your GPS of choice and find your way to the Hampton Inn in Pulaski Tennessee where you can stay in this neat hotel with an outdoor pool!

You will feel on top of the world as you scan the hills and scenery around this hotel! This hotel has a beautiful view from on top of a hill where you can see for miles! They have all the amenities of a chain hotel with an outdoor pool and gym with a great selection of rooms. This hotel has standard rooms of $125 to $150.

The hotels listed below offer rooms at cheaper rates and have fewer amenities, but they are fine if you need a place to stay. These hotels are usually below the hundred-dollar per night rate and are easier to get in during peak vacationing times than our other choices. Each place has a range of king or queen suites and rooms with full-size beds. Each has a set of features on-site or nearby, so give these inns a chance if you have a specific date to visit Lawrence or Giles counties!
The Richland Inn has several locations in the middle Tennessee area. This hotel used to be our top pick until the Best Western Plus was built, but it is still our top pick for those wanting a room for the $99 per night range, where staying several days would make a considerable price difference. They have updated several of their rooms lately and now feel on the same level as a newer hotel. This hotel is usually open for reservations because it has many rooms available for visitors. Having a backup hotel in case your top pick has no vacancy is a great way to ensure you have a place to stay during your designated dates.
The Quality Inn in Pulaski is the more budget-friendly option on our list of places to stay in Giles County. This motel has basic rooms for the night priced around the $70 to $100 range. There are a few fast food places within walking distance, and the inn has covered parking on one side. Pets are allowed here for a small price. The button below takes you to the Choice Hotel's page for more information and booking.
David Crockett Motel
When writing this, the motel offers you a room in the $60 to $80 range. It is just a room with little else but ok for those just wanting a place to sleep. The side of town it resides in is quieter than those on Highway 43 and closer to the Highway 64 Bypass than other hotels. You will need your car to get around as there isn't much within walking distance. Unfortunately, there isn't a good online booking form or a website with much information. The owners prefer you call (931) 762-7191 to book your stay. The best link we could find was from www.kayak.com, where the button link takes you.
The Villa Inn
You will always be able to find your way back to this hotel. The water tower behind it can be seen for miles. The Villa Inn does have a few advantages. The Shoney's next door is unfortunately out of business, but the Highway 55 diner is great, and the 50s-era foods will satisfy any salt lover with their burgers and tater tots and a sweet milkshake to balance it all out! The Crockett Cinema is next door, and the Walmart Supercenter is just behind Crockett Cinemas. Sonic is just down the road if you would rather walk down and order in. The rooms are generally clean, with their doors positioned on the outside of the building. Rates are around the $60 to $80 range, and they usually always have rooms available.
The Redwood Inn
Right beside the KFC is the Redwood Inn. This Inn is around the $70 to $90 price range and offers a standard room when you need a place to sleep. KFC and Krystal are within walking distance along with Stetar's restaurant. There is a nice Mexican food restaurant across the road, but we advise anyone never to try to cross Highway 43 on foot. The doors are more inset at this Inn than some of the others, which helps keep rain or sun away from the door. There isn't a traffic light at this Inn, so the road noise is less than at other Inns along Highway 43. The button link takes you to www.booking.com to book your room!
Just down from David Crockett State Park is the Parkview Motel. Some say that is why they called this motel Parkview because you can see the park entrance from the front door. This motel is the budget option of Lawrence County. For only around $50 to $60 per night, you can stay at this hotel, which is just as good as the other cheaper motels in the area. The road in front of his motel is not as busy as it used to be due to the Highway 64 Bypass, so the noise isn't as bad as the motels on Highway 43. We couldn't find a booking website with a booking form for the Parkview Motel, so we are sharing their phone number.
Alternatives to conventional places to stay
Many people have been going to Airbnb, where you can rent a room or a whole house from someone. This arrangement is a gamble since you depend on a stranger to hosting your living arrangements. These hosting categories have now proved themselves in what Airbnb calls a "superhost" who has kept enough vacationers to warrant an excellent place to stay. This term should make it ok to stay here because the ratings and reviews determine how the guest perceive the place they are looking for. Most places in and around Lawrence County have really good ratings, so we feel confident enough to include the Airbnb link on our page. Naturally, we would feel more confident putting visitors in our hotels and cabins, but we have seen and heard from the bed and breakfast community, and we are going to recommend them in our like in the button below. When the link takes you to the Airbnb website, type in "Lawrenceburg, TN" and your dates of arrival and departure, then the number of guests and if they are adults or children, and it should give you a selection of what is available.
