“Great location, great rates”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 June 2014

This hotel is clean and right off of I-75. The complimentary breakfast at the hotel was very good, but there are several restaurants in the area. The hotel is clean and the staff is attentive. The one downside to this hotel is that the beds are firm and uncomfortable.

The hotel overall was nice. However, my room had a very strong chemical smell to it.My friends room had the same smell only not as strong. I asked the front desk if something had 'happened' and all that bleach was used to clean up something in the room....he said no. I had the manager come up and he did not smell anything out of the ordinary.........great. There was no other room to move to, unless I wanted to stay on the 5th floor....vacant 5th floor, no thanks. I was getting a headache and my throat felt raw after about 3 hours, so I slept with the balcony door open, and it was of course noisy. If you have a sensitivity to chemicals and cleansers I don't recommend this place.

Having drove from early morning until late evening we finally found the hotel. Check in was very easy and the woman behind the desk very pleasant. Beds were comfortable and the breakfast the usual, eggs, waffels etc. Many restaurants close by and not to far off the highway. Would stay again.

I only stayed here one night once I arrived in Knoxville. I arrived late at night around 11 pm. The guy at the front desk was very fast with checking me in. The room was up to date and the bed was so comfortable with all the pillows. I like the fact that it was restaurants close by. The only thing that I didn't like was the maids knocking on my my door the next morning. I felt rush to check out ! Other than that everything was fine I will suggest this hotel to anyone as a place to get a goodnight sleep.

Unexpectedly we had to stay here for 2 nights due to unsafe highway conditions---pleasant surprise---efficient check in---nice quiet room---comfortable bed---very clean and well maintained---excellent breakfast area and breakfast---I wish all stops were as good

Room Tip: Rooms away from highway are likely quieter.

Easy check in with very friendly staff. I appreciated the direction advice to get to the local eateries. A couple of the turns were not well marked.
Room was quiet and beds comfortable. Not sure where they got the tiny pillows. It took stacking three of them to get them to a comfortable height for a side sleeper.
Microwave and mini-fridge came in handy. Flat screen TV was also nice, but I would have appreciated having it wall mounted to free up the top of the dresser.
The hot breakfast the next morning was delicious. Lots of choices, both hot and cold.
The Express Checkout receipt with that day's USA Today was a nice option. If the desk had been busy, I would have used it.
Very likely to stay here again on future trips through the area.

My husband and I stayed here one night for a concert and only paid 67$ on a Friday night. The room was clean and large with a comfy bed. No problems for us and the price was right! If not looking for fancy things just a place to sleep this place is what you are looking for.
