I stayed at the Baymont Inn and Suites Knoxville West in June 2009 while attending a convention in Knoxville. The "sponsor" hotel in downtown Knoxville was booked and close hotels were outrageously priced, so I looked for a place to stay on the way into Knoxville. Sooooo glad I found the Baymont. It was my first time with this chain, and it was a delightful find. I was given a reference from one of the frequent stay programs; I wanted an affordable place to stay that was easy to find and would allow me to travel to and from downtown Knoxville easily. I booked through the site, and upon arrival, the clerk at the front desk allowed me to use their business center to confirm my reservation through internet services to make sure the location was correct as there is another Baymont Inn and Suites in Knoxville - very friendly and helpful at front desk. I was pleasantly surprised when I arrived to find a spacious room with king bed, (non-smoking) fridge, microwave, coffeemaker and free high speed Internet. The staff was pleasant and cheerful and even called to check and see if my room was okay once I was inside after 10 minutes. The continental breakfast was plentiful, and if you can't find anything you enjoy from the cereals (hot and cold) make-your-own waffles, biscuits and sausage gravy, fruit and yogurt, bagels and cream cheese, pastries, fresh fruit and other sundries, there is a Cracker Barrel right next door that you can walk to, which is also handy at the end of the day if you want to eat and not drive into town. There is also a Wild Wings restaurant (guess their specialty!) that you can walk to if interested for lunch or dinner. Staff was very friendly and helpful and I saw them recommend this place to a traveler with young children when it was past 9 and the Cracker Barrel was closed. Housekeeping was great and amenities were replenished in the room each day. I had to leave very early in the morning for another meeting in another state, so I asked for receipt when leaving. I was told that their system updates at midnight, so receipts could not be printed until after update. I went back in after packing the car and got receipt. Late night staff was apologetic for delay and helpful in getting receipt once update was finished. Besides friendly check-in staff, I greatly enjoyed the comfortable bed and quiet atmosphere. Also close to gigantic shopping mecca - just turn left at end of driveway and take next left and you are on the Kingston Pike and the Turkey Creek shopping center goes on for blocks - department stores and specialty stores and restaurants right there! GREAT resource! Great deals and good shopping without getting lost in Knoxville! Found a great Aveda spa - Natural Alternatives - HIGHLY recommend for a spa (aaaahhhhh) day - plus they have five locations to work you in for a great service! I have another meeting in Lenoir City in August and I will definitely return to the Baymond Inn and Suites West!
