Stayed here for 1 night for business. Conveniently located near restaurants and the interstate. Very clean and quiet in the rooms with Keurig coffee in the room. Breakfast was decent. Fitness room equipment was in need of some maintenance but pool and spa looked well maintained although I did not use the latter.

The receptionist was friendly at checkin. I normally book through TripAdvisor since I'm looking at reviews there. I was told I don't get points on my IHG Program when I book through a third party vendor. I didn't realize that. Lesson learned. They had cookies in the lobby in the evening. I looked for fruit but I didn't see any.... More

I have stayed here several times and always enjoy my stay. Quiet, convenient and clean. Close to the interstate for a quick stop in route to your destination. But for food I would not recommend this exit but rather the Cleveland one a few exits east.

We spent one night here on a drive from FL to MD. Overall the room was slightly better than average for a HIX. It had a decent sized bathroom, reasonably good beds, and a fridge and microwave in the room. The condition of the entire property is very good. The breakfast was okay, but a little below the average of... More

We were traveling cross-country and we needed a room for the night. We always try to find and stay at a Holiday Inn Express. We were pleased as usual. The staff was friendly, the room was clean & spacious and we had a great night's sleep.

My husband and I have friends in the area. We had really busy day and needed a comfortable place for the night. This motel met all our expectations. The room temperature was easy to control, the beds were comfortable. There was a nice refrigerator in the room. We will stay there again.

This was a modern, clean hotel with a large room. It is a typical holiday Inn Express with breakfast, a pool, whirlpool and fitness center. Location was great and easy to find. My only complaint is that the Fitness center did not have any free weights, was small and the treadmill was poor. If you are in the area Mayfield's... More

My wife and I were on a long drive from North to Deep South, and we booked a hotel pretty much right between Knoxville and Chattanooga. This hotel is just off Exit 49 on Route 75. Our room with a King-size bed is spacious, and the bed and the pillows were comfortable. The desk area also has a plenty of... More

We were planning to drive another 150 miles before stopping for the night. However, due to bad weather, we had to find the very next place to stay. And since we are members of the IHG club, we were looking for Holiday Inn Express. This was an excellent choice. It is just off I-75. The check-in process was very quick.... More
