I needed a reasonable hotel while visiting a relative at a nearby hospital. The cost and experience at this hotel far exceeded my expectations! Though the lot in front of the hotel looked ratty (needed mowed), the hotel lobby and common areas were delightfully modern, clean, and bright. My room was at the end of the hallway so somewhat dark... More

My children and I traveled to Knoxville for a baby shower with our shih you puppy. I booked a room at this quality Inn for 3 nights.The room stunk terribly, but instead of complaining I went and bought a candle. We had to stay at a hotel that took pets so I figured they all smelled like that. I didn't... More

Judy, I would like to once more apologize for the troubles you experienced here at the Quality Inn Merchants. We did offer to move you to a different room, an offer which you refused. This would have fixed all of the problems that you mentioned to me on the phone and all of the problems mentioned in your unfair review.We... More

We stayed here when we attended the Jehovah's Witnesses Convention in Knoxville. The desk staff were welcoming and helpful. But our hats off to the hot breakfast kitchen crew! Lisa and her helper amazingly kept up as we swarmed the buffet 3 days in a row. They worked nonstop to keep a steady supply of multiple hot breakfast items for... More

Room smell was kinda weird but otherwise it was great. The beds were extremely soft and the price was definitely a good deal. The breakfast was a home run. Be sure to eat dinner at the nearby Monterrey Mexican Restaurant!

We stayed at this motel last night and was very impressed! The room was very clean with a king size bed, nice shower, and breakfast looked good but I really was wanting Waffle House that was very close. It was quiet and the bed was very comfortable! The front desk staff was very nice. Room did not smell like cigarette... More

We stayed at this Quality Inn during the first stop for our road trip to Florida. Since we were driving a 20 ft U-Haul truck we wanted something close to the freeway exit and with a large enough parking lot so we can maneuver the truck without having to back out of the space. This hotel suited as perfectly. Room:... More

We stopped here on the way to NC and on the way back. They let us book even though we weren't quite 21 yet and were great about letting us come in at 2 am with no problems. GREAT value for the price! It's not super fancy, but the pool, mini fridge, microwave, and continental breakfast were amazing. It was... More

When searching for a place to stay...basically only to sleep...quality inn was perfect and accommodated our needs. Room was average size, bathroom was very small...but beds were comfortable and plenty of hot water for showers. Overall, we were satisfied and would stay here again.

This being my first stay at a Quality Inn, I wasn't sure what to expect. Very surprised at how nice and quiet the room was. Also very clean overall and a good, hot breakfast selection. Will stay here again when visiting the area.
