Reeked of cigarette smoke even though we requested a non-smoking room. Old TVs, no alarm clocks or coffee makers. There was filled in holes in the bathroom where they changed out the faucet. The breakfast was a joke, 2 kinds of cereal, oatmeal, crusty pastries and awful waffles that were made in a home waffle maker. And the juice was... More

A so-so hotel, but worked for $57. Room was a little musty and dated. Maybe a 27 inch CRT TV, but cable service seemed OK for the few minutes I watched it. The say they have a premium movie channel included. I was too tired to check to see which one. Pillows were unsubstantial and not great for someone who... More

It started bad and got worse. The desk clerk couldn't find my reservation. Finally he found it. The front drive was blocked and I had to drive all the way around the building to get to my room. I lugged in all my luggage and found it was not a handicap room, as I had reserved. I didn't feel like... More

The location is great, near everything, mall, restaurants, shopping and entertainment and only minutes from downtown. The room was clean, and had all the amenities, microwave, refrigerator, iron etc. The staff was very friendly and helpful. And although it was the time of a big college game and the motel filled with partiers there was no excessive noise or problems.... More

We happened to be passing by Knoxville and around midnight, we decided to give this hotel a try. We were checked in very fast and very politely and the person who checked us in on Aug 29 was very enthusiastic and kind. They didnt have king beds because they were putting carpets in so we took the two beds. Beds... More

Great hotel with a great staff. Location was perfect. Very close to great restaurants and a mall. Complimentary breakfast was good. I am very surprised by the negative reviews but I seriously recommend and WE WILL BE BACK NEXT YEAR.

This hotel is filthy!!! Cracks in the walls, carpet was dirty, the room smelled and there were knatty bugs in the room. There were lots of questionable characters there as well. And the pool is no longer in use.....not that we wouldve used it anyway. Keep driving past this place...go down 2 more exits and book something there!!!! Absolutely disgusting... More

This place may have a good price but there is a reason they say "you get what you pay for" or in the case of the Knoxville Guest House Inn and Suites you get trash. The rooms are awful, the furniture is worn out and looks terrible. The non-smoking room smelled like cigarette smoke or some other foul smell. DO... More

First of all I would like to say, "I do it too myself! I have no one else to blame!" I have stayed here multiple times over the years, and it still looks like the same rat hole I stayed in over 2 years ago. Front desk sign states, "please excuse or mess as we are remodeling"... I see no... More
