I only stayed here one night once I arrived in Knoxville. I arrived late at night around 11 pm. The guy at the front desk was very fast with checking me in. The room was up to date and the bed was so comfortable with all the pillows. I like the fact that it was restaurants close by. The only... More

Easy check in with very friendly staff. I appreciated the direction advice to get to the local eateries. A couple of the turns were not well marked. Room was quiet and beds comfortable. Not sure where they got the tiny pillows. It took stacking three of them to get them to a comfortable height for a side sleeper. Microwave and... More

My husband and I stayed here one night for a concert and only paid 67$ on a Friday night. The room was clean and large with a comfy bed. No problems for us and the price was right! If not looking for fancy things just a place to sleep this place is what you are looking for.

I traveled to Knoxville for business and needed to bring my dog overnight. The staff was friendly and I had a room on the end of the hall. The rooms and linens could use some sprucing; however, for the price it was a nice quiet stay. Also, it is next to a Quaker steak and Lube and a Red Lobster... More

While returning from a recent business trip to Maryland, I spent the night at this Clarion Inn. Easy on and off the freeway. The bed was comfortable and my room was clean. I really enjoyed the morning breakfast. I will definitely stay here again!

Pet friendly hotel, with large clean rooms. Dogs not allowed in the front entrance of the hotel. No charge for our 10lb dog. Very friendly staff and an adequate breakfast. Very quiet rooms, even though located close to freeway. Room has fridge and microwave. Would stay here again.

My husband and I spend 2 nights at Clarion Inn. It was very clean! The front desk was friendly and helpful. We discovered shortly after getting to our room that we didn't have a shower curtain.

My stay at this place was relatively brief. Arrived late and left early in the morning. Didn't take advantage of the breakfast, so I can't say anything about it. Location is very convenient and has a lot of activity around it. The building looks right onto the freeway, so noise was a concern, but it wasn't bad. Service at the... More
