I cannot review their rooms but I can rate their customer service. We booked a room through Choice Hotels. I found out they didn't book us for the night we wanted but the wrong night. I called immediately and they told me nothing could be done, that I had missed my reservation and they were not going to refund my... More

Tuesday night stay with friends in room with two double beds was $60 (including tax) for 3 of us. Supposed nonsmoking room had faint smell of smoke. No coffee pot in room. Upon arrival at night not even a full cup of coffee in pot at reception desk and it was very old and stale. No paper for notes etc.... More

Very good deal for the price! Front desk was available 24/7. The room was clean and comfortable. Near lots of restaurants and stores. Conveniently located right off the freeway. One complaint was there was no pool or fitness center. Overall, for the price, I would recommend this hotel to everyone. :)

I've stayed at this hotel a couple times, and I've always found it to be clean and comfortable. It's well-kept, and the linens are new. I have never had any issues, but some families may not feel safe due to its location. That said, it's a great option for a budget traveler and one of the nicest discount motels I've... More

Ok, there are several locations in Knoxville, this review is about 5505 Merchant Ctr.

Front desk gentleman was friendly. Our check in (I guess because we arrived late) literally took two minutes but we did our reservation online earlier in the day. Got a discount with my AAA card. Clean room. Wi-Fi works fine. No complaints for an overnight stay. Convenient off of the interstate.

I was skeptical when I booked this room but I trusted the reviews on "Tripadvisor" so I took a change. The room was very clean, most likely newly remodeled. The bed was comfortable and I slept well. The only down side was breakfast, bagels and coffee, but for what I saved, I could eat in any restaurant and still come... More

As you might expect at Econo Lodge, this is not a fancy place. On the other hand it has the best beds for me! I need soft a soft mattress and this place has them. The best suggestion for the free breakfast is to skip it, and go the the IHOP across the street.

Stayed here for a night with the expectation that I would only be in the room long enough to shower and sleep. Actually have to admit that it was better than what I expected. The room was small, but clean and cozy. Decor was not outdated and the bed was comfortable. Room size would probably deter me if staying longer... More

We were traveling from the Toronto area to Sarasota Fl. 1st day drive we made it to here and decided to stop for the day. We also were traveling with our Newfoundland dog. Price was good, $10 pet surcharge was reasonable. Room was fine, clean, and bed was acceptable. IHOP and other food very close (walking distances) Nothing wrong with... More
