Stayed here for 5 nights with my husband over the holidays, so I suspect the hotel was unusually quiet and empty. We didn't have an especially large room as another reviewer said- it was actually pretty narrow- but it was sparkling clean and had very nice furnishings and decor. I really appreciate the huge vanity in the bathroom- lots of places for toiletries. There were lots of well thought out amenities such as a hidden microwave and fridge, blowdryer, make-up remover, etc. Service was excellent; I really don't think there's much room for improvement there.
The only dings in this experience are pretty minor....perhaps the lack of curtains that can completely block the sun- I notice the more opaque curtains didn't have a rod that went all the way across. Also, my husband didn't touch the breakfast. The heat-lamped sausage or eggs just weren't appealing to him, but since I'm not a big breakfast eater it didn't bother me as much. I just stuck to the coffee, cereal, yogurt, and cinnamon rolls :)
I've stayed in the Hampton Inn and Comfort Inn in Oak Ridge, and I'm leaning towards going back to the HI express next time. Overall a very comfortable stay.
