There are actually several motels there. There's a good dirt race track there that brings in quite a bit of business and tourists. No bus service. And New Tazewell has a large Clayton Homes plant.
A list of hotels from the race track website:
Ramada Inn of Cumberland Gap (Approx. 10 miles)
Cumberland Gap
423-869-3631
http://www.cumberlandgap-ramada.com/ (broken link)

Imperial Inn (Approx. 5 miles)
Tazewell
(423) 626-4284

Tazewell Motor Lodge (Approx. 5 miles)
Tazewell
(423) 626-7229

Best Western Inn (Approx. 15 miles)
Middlesboro, KY
(606) 248-5630

Holiday Inn (Approx. 15 Miles)
Middlesboro, KY
(606) 248-6860

Middlesboro, KY is actually the closest big town near it. Tazewell is very much a Tennessee hill town. Beautiful scenery. But the only way you can get there is by car. Or see if you can make friends with someone who races there and catch a ride up!

Ah, okay Most rural parts of the US don't have bus service. Only a few large metros have train services, and there are very few links from city to city with rail, except for NYC, Philadelphia, Boston, etc.

You might persuade a Knoxville cab driver to take you to Tazewell, but the best option, in my opinion, would be to fly into Knoxville or Nashville and rent a car. That way you won't be dependent on anyone for transportation, as this is a very isolated area.

It's about 60 miles from Knoxville. A pretty easy drive.
Rental car would be much cheaper than a cab. You should be able to get one for a week for $150 or so.
I'm curious as to why you want to get to Tazewell?

Just think of it this way. The US is about twice the size of the EU, about half the size of Russia. There's a lot of land, and though we have over 300 million people, lots of them are clustered into pockets, like New York City (some 18 million), Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, Houston, Atlanta, etc.
