4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Not a bad place to stay. The room are small but clean. Our room didn't not have a fridge or microwave but we were there just to sleep and shower. The price was not bad at $69 a night. Staff was friendly and breakfast was ok. I would probably stay here again.

Great place to stay, convenient to the highway. One side of the property faces Interstate 75 but road noise is minimal. Was surprised housekeeping staff takes up the up front parking spaces which should be premium spots reserved for guests. Late night desk staff was exceptionally welcoming and accommodating, he did a great job.

I stayed at the Clarion on July 11, 2015. It was very clean, the staff was helpful and polite. I will stay here on my next trip this way. We had a double room. Each room has a balcony of its own It was value priced and the atmosphere was great. They serve breakfast on weekends which was terrific and... More

We have stayed here several times for one night as we were passing through Knoxville. It's very easy to get to, right off the freeway, and the rooms are very comfortable. There is a Red Lobster next door if one doesn't feel like driving anywhere for dinner. It's a good value with free internet and breakfast.

Very pleasantly surprised! When I saw the price of the rooms, I was expecting a lower quality experience. This hotel, however, proved to be a very good bargain, complete with a comfortable, clean room and a friendly staff. Would definitely stay here again.

The clerk up front was wonderful, the atmosphere was great. The room was clean, a bit small on one hand but it's a place to rest and sleep on the other. The bed is something to be desired 436 the room number they have not gone to the memory foam beds yet which is a much more comfortable sleep. But... More

My wife and I stayed here and it is a great place to stay. It is very clean and up to date, the room was very nice and we had a great night sleep. The staff was friendly and very helpful. It is located close to restaurants for dining or breakfast.

We needed a one night stay while attending a concert in Knoxville. This place for the bill perfectly. We weren't sure, based in the price, what we would find but it was great. The front desk clerks were very friendly and helpful. The lobby and breakfast areas appeared to have been recently updated. There was some wear and tear showing... More

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
