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.

Very nice hotel at a reasonable price. Very clean. Comfortable bed and quiet room. Good breakfast. Staff very helpful. Convenient to restaurants. The only negative in room was that the furniture did not match and the night tables were really banged and gouged. I would stay there again and recommend it!

Booked on Hotels.com and arrived very late (1:30 am). The front desk attendant was ready for us and very accommodating and informative. We didn't know what to expect since we booked from a third party. I'm happy to say that Clarion exceeded all expectations! The room was clean and comfortable with a fridge, microwave, flatscreen and balcony. It was quiet... More

A pleasant respite on the journey north. The room we had was great, good breakfast in spacious room, front desk was friendly and efficient. Nice lobby, fairly good area by the interstate.

We stayed here for a UT football game. The room was clean and front desk staff was very helpful. For the game we were attending they also offered a shuttle (for an extra charge) to and from the game. We chose to drive and it was a very easy drive to the stadium. Would absolutely stay there again.

The good.... Great staff. Very friendly, personable and ready to assist. The lobby and breakfast area is very nice. The rooms are up to date and love having a private balcony for every room. Great location and would probably stay here again. The bad...The carpet needs replaced badly. A lot of cosmetic improvements needed. Breakfast was so-so at best.

This was booked on hotwire. Couldn't ask for a better place and rate. Friendly and cautious front desk. Room was more than we expected for the price. Close to a nice place to eat. The breakfast was excellent. Would recommend to any one travelling.
