There are other hotels on the 74 By-Pass in Spindale/Forest City, but I have not been in them and have heard less than good reports on their cleanliness, etc.  You may also want to look on Air B&B, but be certain you are looking for Rutherford Co NC and not Rutherford Co TN!

There are numerous good restaurants in our area within a few miles of the class, and the building is equipped with a full kitchen for those that prefer to bring their own food
