My wife and i are planning a move to Paris for a job transfer.
I was curious and started reading some of the posts.
Im sure this stuff happens everywhere but, Wow !!
We are looking for a clean, cheap, safe place to stay until
we can get settled. I called motels to get weekly rates.
The gentleman at Knights Inn gave me a great price .
Im just curious now. I dont want to get down there and be
scrambling to find a place. We have a pet and i just want know
i have a place to stay for a bit when we leave here.
Any suggestions would help. THANKS

There are places by the lake that rent little cabins by the week, the knights inn isnt great but its what you would expect for lower end, not in the paper all the time, unlike the larger place called paris inn they are a larger place that got very run down and got sold multiple times, currently run by man whose wife gossips constantly so if going to live here full time be very careful what you say and do at that place, check the paris post intellegencer online for weekly rentals. The lake is a 10 12 min drive to town but much less crime.
Good luck with your move. Not many jobs here available for wife unless she is a nurse. Lots of gossip and thieves, latter is due to previous mentioned lack of jobs. Just Remember verrrrry small town with A lot of bored people who do not let anything go and it will Grow with each telling.

Knights Inn is very run down and very known for Hookers walking around the establishment. However Paris Inn on East Wood street has good weekly rates and suites for longer stays. The wife does not gossip as one person stated, that rumor was hacked on this site. Thanks to people like the above. But business wise, Paris Inn has pretty good rates and new rooms. No one talks positively about anything or anyone on here, but a few certain people like myself. It's hard to believe anything on here. People will make up crap to say simply to say it. Good luck with finding a place.

I love the Hampton! They're about a 100.00 a night though but not sure of their suites or weekly rates. I know paris inn is in the process of improving, they are always remodeling but staying by the lake sounds wonderful!

Are you looking to buy a place? I know a guy who has 30 acres, he is looking to sell and move. Has two homes on the property, and many out buildings, two separate wells, two separate septics.

Paris is certainly not a bad town unless you find yourself associating with the wrong people. But thats the case in every town and the people that get on here by no means represents the majority of the community

And just who are the wrong people? You are right, if you're not in the "clique", you are with the wrong people. Please do tell, who are these "GREATS" that live among us? The so called "greats" I have met here , are usually the worst one you could ever imagine, they lie , cheat, steal, deal drugs, ect. Yet they are considered the gods of our community.

Maybe you need to move to another part of town... it's okay where I live.

All towns have their share of crime... at least Paris is not Jackson, Nashville or Memphis.

Paris isn't a terrible place to live if you're older. The lake is nice in the warmer times of the year. I wouldn't recommend it if you or your wife like to get out a lot and participate in recreational activities. There are some here and there, but otherwise the town is pretty boring. On the upside, Jackson and Clarksville are just an hour away, and Nashville and Memphis are 2 hours away. Makes for a nice little day trip. As for motels, steer clear of Knights Inn. You'll be sharing walls with pay by the hour sex noises and drug abusers looking for a cheap place to get high. It's also on the corner of one of the biggest intersections in town, which will result in road noise. From what I have heard, Paris Inn has larger suites with a kitchenette available for people in your situation. It's a bigger place further from the highway, too. Good luck on your journey. I hope you enjoy living here.

Please note... Paris is a good town no matter what some have written... it is a small town, but it's what you make it. True Paris is not Nashville, but then Nashville is not Atlanta or Dallas. You have to put things in order. I have been back to Paris for over 20 years and it is now home and I like it. Sure we need a lot of new stuff, but in time things will happen.

If you want the big city life and what it has to offer then you will either have to move to or visit the big city. But, Paris has many things to offer and with the lake near by I think you will enjoy being here... Welcome.

Paris Landing is a great area and growing steady. 15 minutes from town. Although some do not like this area, we love it! We are in our fourties and have lived in Henry County all our lives. We moved to the Paris Landing area 4 years ago and wish we moved years ago. Although we do not live on the lake, we are only a short 5/10 minute drive from there. Paris and Murray are about the same distances from where we live so we go to either place to dine or shop depending on our mood. We also enjoy getting out every now and then for some grown up fun. Eagles Nest Dockside Bar is a great laid back place in the summer to have a cold mixed drink and hear live bands on the water. There a a few other places to relax around the lake in the winter as well. Check with Mansard Island and Buchanan Resort. Both have rental properties available and both are on the web. Good luck!
