“New, but a Gem!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 18 April 2014

Picked as a Choice property, appreciated for the staff and cleanliness. If shopping and being a bit farther from the university is your goal this is your place. Close to Kingston Pike and all the newest shops and restaurants this place is a great stop. Our favourite restaurants were there so it was a double plus.

Well worth the time and effort to stop here.

Room Tip: Get far from the elevators... The curtains are hidden inside the valiances.

My husband and I were attending a weekend state bowling tournament in Knoxville. Since the Clarion Inn was listed as the tournament's 'host' hotel (participants receive discount rates, though Clarion's regular prices are budget-friendly), we decided to stay there rather than search all over for hotels near the two major bowling centers that tournament was to take place.

Thank goodness we did -- the hotel's location was easy to get to as it was right off of I-75 and within walking distance of plenty of restaurants and gas stations (always a plus when traveling to 'parts unknown'). Our room was clean and comfortable, did not hear any noise from our surrounding 'neighbors' and the entire hotel is smoke-free...a DEFINITE plus!! The hotel offers the classic complimentary breakfast (make-your-own waffles, fruit, oatmeal/grits, cereal, bacon, eggs, hot and cold beverages) and room where served is large enough to hold more than a few for guests at a time.

I would definitely stay here on my next trip to Knoxville...

Our room was clean and the staff was helpful. A fair price for the room. Overall the hotel was fine for our one night stopover. We arrived on a Sunday night and were not aware of the Blue Laws. No liquor stores open and nothing for purchase at grocery stores.

Friendly and accommodating after a long day of driving. Price was excellent, room was clean, beds comfortable and towels matched the number of people in our party. Pool towels available for our swimmers.
We were shown a room without objection or escort. We were offered a luggage cart. The pool was opened for us right away for restless kids. Pizza recommendation was made.

The fridge didn't freeze our food and the freezer recharged our coolies for the second leg of our trip.

Room Tip: Second floor and up didn't have a "damp hotel" feel

The 1st room was damp and had a mold smell. At first I thought the carpets were recently cleaned because they were wet. But then I noticed the bed sheets were damp as well. I asked for a new room which wasn't as bad but still had wet carpet and a musty smell.

Can't complain on the price I paid for the room since we went through the secret hotels on Travelocity. Overall the hotel was decent. It has apparently recently changed over to a Clarion so I am not sure if they are working on upgrading some things or not. When we first entered the room there was an old musty type odor. We got that continually during the stay (only overnight). The hallways also had some type of off odor to us. None of it overpowering but left us wondering what was going on. Mostly clean and staff helpful. Some things were non-working (one of the exterior doors was constantly propped open-concern). But the room had the necessary things like room in bath and towels. No micro or fridge in room. Very average type hotel but convenient to I40. Overnight was okay but wouldn't want to spend any extended time here myself due to odors.

Loved the wide variety of specialty teas available 24 hrs a day and coffee. What a nice surprise. I truly appreciated both. Beds fine. Centrall located for weary travelers. Liked how the pool was down in and more private.
