This hotel was a great stop for our family. It's nice to have a place to bring pets without paying a ton of extra money... How about no extra money! Plus, the hotel seemed brand new or at least newly remodeled. It's really the best room for the price that we've found on the road while traveling with children and... More

I have stayed at many of these hotels and this one is the most beautiful inside that I have stayed in to date. Located right off of hwy 40 which was a blessing because we got caught in a horrible downpour and this stop was not planned. On the same street only about 5 minutes away is a strip of... More

New facility with pool and awesome breakfast. Close to downtown, easy access to Interstate. Pet friendly. Would definitely stay there again when in the Knoxville area. Only problem/drawback -- it's right next to a Red Roof Inn, and you enter La Quinta through the RRI lot. Once we figured that out, we were set!

Had requested a 5:45 a.m. wake-up call. Woke up at 7:45. Brought the issue to the attention of the general manager who adjusted our bill by $20. Also allowed us to enter the breakfast line a few minutes after it closed at 9 a.m.

In May 2015, we found this hotel to be fairly new. It is just off I-40 on the south side, so it has easier access from I40 West. The lobby and common areas have post-modern decor and are quite tasteful. Check in was a breeze, with a friendly front desk staff, the room and bath were very clean; the breakfast... More

I was very pleased with this hotel. I travel regularly with a sweet old dog and it's a relief to simply walk him around, not pay a big fee, and still have nice clean accommodations. I particularly loved the quality of the bed, the cleanliness, and the bathroom decor. Very nice. The internet was sketchy in my room, but speedy... More

We stayed a night here for a wedding. The front desk helper was so sweet. She went out of her way to book those of us with the same last name together, figuring we were with the wedding. The lobby was bright, clean, and modern. We got to our room and I was gagging. The smell of animals and disinfectant... More

We stayed for a week at this hotel. It was clean and the room was large with a very comfortable bed. Staff was sweet, accommodating & helpful! Breakfast was above average for a hotel, which included eggs, bacon, potatoes, waffles and continental pastries. Only downside is, if you're not a dog person, than this hotel is not for you, I...

Our stay was very comfortable and pleasant. Staff very friendly and room was clean and comfortable. Breakfast was very good as well. Would stay here another time we are in town. Was a convenient location right of major highway. Easy access on and off I40

New hotel and is immaculate - no worries about it being pet friendly, the hotel lobby/lounging area and rooms are immaculate. No issues with some of the other issues I've had in the past with other more costly pet-friendly hotels including fleas, rooms not in great shape. If you're a pet is part of your family, highly recommend staying here.
