We stayed for two night while in town for a UT football weekend. The hotel was the cheapest option and about 10 minutes from downtown. The hotel is very clean and tidy, but a little run down. There are signs of wear and tear, but as expected for $75 per night on a high occupancy weekend. The breakfast was good... More

My mother and I stayed here hoping it would be adequate/average while our cat was getting surgery at the Univ. of TN. Unfortunately, the rooms are horrible. The first room we checked in to had no toilet seat, it was completely removed and obviously being repaired. One comforter had holes burned in it from cigarettes. We then switched to a... More

Best thing about this place is the hot breakfast. Bacon,eggs,waffles,etc. along with the other usual items breakfast items(fruit,cereal,yogurt) makes getting on the road a lot nicer. Our room needed some updating but overall not a terrible room. Hotel check in was friendly but undermanned. An older man was at the desk when I was checking in waiting for a new... More

When we got to the hotel we could tell it was a little older and not as up to date but the hotel staff were great to work with. They were very accommodating to our schedule, helped us out with special requests, and really made our stay a very enjoyable experience. Nikki particularly stands out as very friendly and a... More

Got great deal on Expedia. Clean. Courteous service. Nice size room and bath. Breakfast was substantial - make your own waffles, a breakfast meat, eggs, fruit, yogurt...Nice pool. A few small cons - hard mattress and air conditioner was not consistent - either too hot or cold. Wireless internet not real fast but adequate. For this price this is a... More

We stayed there for a single night and I must say that we were pleasantly surprised. There are enough chain restaurants around it that even the pickiest eater could find someplace to go. Hooters, Red Lobster, Outback, on and on. Right off the freeway we made it from the strip by UT to the hotel in about 10 minutes or... More

i arrived at 10pm and when i opened the door to my room, i thought that the traffic sounded awfully loud! lo and behold, the sliding door that faced the interstate was open! the coffee maker was clogged, the fridge froze my veggies and even though the room was spacious and clean, i will not use this location again

A nice hotel close to I-75. At first I thought the room was small but then as looked at the big closet, desk and chair, additional chair and two beds. There was a lot of stuff that made the room nice. There were lots of restaurants close by.
