We were traveling from Milwaukee to Myrtle Beach on 7/18/14 and needed an overnight stay along the way. This hotel was convenient, right off the interstate and there are numerous gas stations and places to eat at this exit. Waffle House is located on the same driveway, you can walk to it and we had dinner there. We had three... More

I came down to Knoxville with my family and I just wanted a cheap little vacation with my family, and the hotel was the best of it! It was a bargain for us! When we checked in, the desk clerk was very polite and respectable! My family and I thought the beds were quite comfortable for a quality inn, well... More

This is a typical budget inn with outside corridors. The price was very reasonable. We need a place to sleep before driving on. This hotel is very convenient to drive in and out. We chose it for the location. We did not have any complaints for our stay. It was clean and the place was quiet. We could walk to... More

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!

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
