Room was pretty clean. The bathroom was pretty dated with slight discoloration on the ceiling. The overflow cover on the tub was missing so it was just on open hole. Beds were comfortable. We weren't able to take advantage of the free hot breakfast because they don't serve it until 7am and we were back on the road at 6:30.... More

Looking a place fairly close to Fort Sander and cheap. This place was nice and cheap. Very clean. Some of the furniture was old but no biggie. The important thing was it was comfortable and clean. Nice pool area. Many places to eat even within walking distance. Would stay again

This is an older property that has been remodeled. It was clean with new paint and new carpet. Average breakfast. Each room has a small balcony and sliding glass door for some fresh air. You are walking distance from Red Lobster and Outback. This choice is fine for a one night stay on the road and priced accordingly.

Terrific value. Great location to downtown Knoxville, very clean rooms, excellent staff - eager to make you satisfied, great hot breakfast - including bacon and eggs - where do you get that included in your room rate for a value hotel. Most value hotels call breakfast a stale donut and burnt coffee. Very nice lobby. Have stayed here previously and... More

Wi-fi was silly slow...slower then dial up. I left some clothes behind and e-mailed but got no help..I should have called but I use a pay as you go phone.Room was clean and that's the most important thing to me. No coffee maker or fridge in the room either.Rather small but it was a business trip.

This Clarion was well above any of the Choice Hotel experiences my wife and I have had. We were on our way back to Toronto from Florida and had a dog with us. We were tired and hungry when we arrived just before 8 pm. We were greeted with cheerfulness by the front desk staff and two of the staff... More

Stayed here on our way down to Florida. They were very accommodating to our late arrival, had our room ready and waiting at 2am. Room was very clean, beds were comfy. The free breakfast was very delicious (loved the waffles!). The only problem we had was they charged my credit card even though we had booked and paid for the... More

If you are heading North, stop on the N. side of Knoxville to avoid the crazy am traffic around this city. This is just far enough off the interstate that you won't hear the absurd traffic that passes by. Breakfast is both HOT and good, the corridors are inside and there is an elevator. Linens, pillows and bed are comfortable.

We stopped here overnight enroute to our destination and were pleasantly surprised. Hotel was clean, pillows/bed comfortable. The water is highly chlorinated! Breakfast was average or below but would still stay here again.
