I am terrible disappointed with my experience with this hotel, which I ironically chose based on another Trip Advisor reviewer who stated they had no problem cancelling a reservation at the last minute due to bad weather. As a single mom travelling alone with my 7 year old daughter, I wanted the security of having a reservation for a safe... More

I've stayed at pricier hotels that aren't as nice. Don't get me wrong, this isn't a luxe hotel by any means, but the bed was comfortable and the room was clean. Breakfast wasn't anything spectacular, but it was adequate before another long day on the road. Biscuits and gravy, two kinds of cereal, pastries and toast plus juice and coffee.... More

I actually did not stay here, but I had a reservation. I was projected to get there at 2 a.m. (4 more hours), and by the time we got close to Nashville I could barely drive through due to a severe thunderstorm and knew I couldn't safely make it to the hotel since it wasn't letting up and I was...

After a long day of driving we stopped here due to its pet friendly policy. Room was clean, smelled good, and quiet. The price we under $60 for a double queen with pets. No complaints. I would happily stay here again if traveling through.

My mom and I stayed in this hotel for 4 days while we visited east Tennessee. The hotel is comfortable and quiet. They had a great breakfast and free wifi. However, if you are looking for the Ritz this is not it. This hotel is frequented by truckers and had maids that smoke. Yet the rooms are amazingly clean. You... More

The rooms are okay...you get what you pay for. The staff however is rude and unhelpful. On our first night we asked about taxis (how much, what company) the front desk clerk just said no and went about her way. When I got home I realized I lost one shoe of a pair of expensive boots. I called to see... More

My wife has family here so we usually stay here in the Econo Lodge because it is close to I-40 and her family. You have I-40 for access to both Knoxville and Sevierville. The rooms are cleaner than average and the hotel help is very welcoming and supportive. Everyone there went out of their way to be helpful and there... More

We stopped here one night recently while driving through Knoxville. We just needed a place to rest our head for the night. I was not expecting much, but I was pleasantly surprised. The hotel was quiet, reasonably priced, clean room, no weird smells or bugs, comfortable bed, and good pressure shower. I was able to get a tube of toothpaste... More

I have stayed here often on business. The rates are very reasonable, about $60.00 normally, although like many hotels in the area weekend UT football games can cause a spike in the rates. The rooms are clean and reasonably comfortable. The beds are not what you would expect to find in a high end hotel, but they are comfortable enough.... More

Arrived about 6:30 p.m. Was able to check in fairly easy. The lady at the desk was really busy. We had a room on the end, so it was pretty quiet. This is a standard overnight stay hotel. Lots of truck traffic in and out. The room was very clean. They provide their brand of soap, shampoo and conditioner. The... More
