I don't stay in $54 hotel rooms but this one shocked me. Spacious and CLEAN room. True breakfast with eggs etc. For the money, unreal. I'd definitely recommend it and I will also check out other Clarions in the future.

Rooms were just ok. Double beds aren't the best when you are used to a king. Staff was helpful. Rooms were clean. It is an easy on and off the expressway. Free breakfast didn't meet expectations. There is not enough seating. The waffle machine had huge back up and wasn't working. Not sure if we will be back. Rooms were... More

Needed a place to stay while visiting family that didn't have room for everyone. This was a very convenient location for me as it was very close to my son's house. The hotel is older but was in decent condition. Room was clean but was a little older. They had breakfast but I didn't use it so can't comment there.... More

This is our second time staying here. We like the comfort and the quality. The rooms are always clean and we are smokers but the rooms aren't smelly! This is our go to spot when traveling thru Knoxville!

Spacious room and very clean. Staff was friendly and helpful. The breakfast was not good. Not much selection, no eggs, and they used way too much Styrofoam. Location was easy off, easy on the highway.

This place was definitely reasonable for a hotel that you can bring your pet. Other than that, it's not maintained well enough to ever get more of our money. It's ran down and basically seems that housekeeping doesn't care how the rooms look. In the morning we couldn't get clean towels due to the hotel being "full" wth! We could... More

We were in Knoxville for a football game and found that all the hotels were charging premium prices this weekend. So I looked for a place not too far from the stadium and found this... the prices were still high but certainly beat those downtown. There were quite a few football fans staying here this weekend. It was clean and... More

We stayed at the Clarion Inn while in town for the UT versus Arkansas game. Anyone that goes to the UT games regularly knows that hotels are snapped up quickly. I always try to book many months in advance, but really great rooms are hard to get for big games. I had never stayed at the Clarion and the reviews... More
