My husband and I stayed here for Valentine's weekend. The hotel is beautiful. The staff was friendly and they helped us with any questions we had.

My husband and I visited Johnson city for a weekend and stayed at the Carnegie hotel. Beautiful beautiful hotel! The revolving door, the burning fire place, and tastefully decorated lobby was breath taking. Worth every penny. Check in process was too easy. A younger Indian lady helped us at the front desk when we asked her about dinner suggestions. She... More

The Carnegie Hotel is an elegant and classy hotel across from East Tennessee State University. The accommodations are top notch. The rooms are very large and so is the bathroom with a separate tub and shower and twin sinks. The beds are quite comfortable. And there was even a discreetly hidden refrigerator. I have only two modest complaints: 1. No... More

I stayed here for Monday through Friday. The room is very spacious. The staff are generally friendly and helpful. The wifi was terrible. As a business trip, I depended on a good wifi. Carnegie's wifi is far less than dependable. It is on and off, even now at 6 am in the morning. It could not have been because of... More

We stayed here while attending our son's orientation and registration for East Tennessee State University. We were so pleased with the accommodations. The room was PERFECT in size and amenities. The room had everything we look for in a room and was missing those extras we never cared about anyway (i.e., full fridge full of overpriced items). The bed was... More

This was my first time staying at the Carnegie, I read many reviews of this hotel before booking and most of the reviews was positive. I decided to go to Johnson City just to get away from my small town and do some shopping and eat a nice dinner somewhere. I arrived maybe 5 min before 3pm and checked in.... More

We have stayed here several times before and have been generally pleased. In the past, some of the furniture was starting to fall apart, but it was still a nice property. This time, we found rooms desperately in need of updating, sagging beds, and a rude check in woman with long black hair who should work on her professionalism. We... More

Booked my reservation through Booking.com and it was superb, the high attentiveness of the staff to the nicely decorated interior. Definitely a treat for small Johnson City, room amenities can be improved but the very large bathroom size and beds make up for that. One of a kind property, don't see why a few major upgrades cannot make it a... More
