Stayed on night on a business trip to Knoxville. It was easy to find, great location, and not a bad price point. It was dated, but not excessively so. Minor maintenance and cosmetic issues that should be addressed like loose fixtures, well worn furniture, and stains. Overall, I will stay again on my next stay in Knoxville.

This hotel is not fancy, but it is a great value and it is clean and well maintained. We choose to stay at this hotel several times a year when we travel to Knoxville to visit our daughter at UTK. The hotel is a short freeway drive from campus (shuttle service is available on game days) and is very quiet.... More

Stayed here while driving home from Florida on Jan 3. Room was only $44! We just wanted a clean place to sleep for 8 hours. Started searching for hotels about an hour out of city, reading all the reviews. Decided to try this one. Quickly made a reservation and arrived at hotel 20 min later. When we arrived, it was...

Relocated recently for job and became stuck while looking to purchase a home. My wife, daughter and myself we're staying at another area hotel close to the Red Roof, trust me saving $17.00 a night isn't worth what you lose in an extended stay situation. I booked online directly with Red Roof, got a fantastic deal! We actually forfeited a... More

Red roof has an advance - no refund reservation plan that makes this location a very best value. Total charge was about $48 with all taxes. Room was well prepared and the king bed was a good sleep experience. Staff was friendly and helpful. Hot breakfast from 6-10 was varied and well stocked. (I think other chains should get the... More

My wife and I drive a truck, and when we don't get antenna tv on football Sundays, we get a room. Preferably a large flat screen, which is what brought us to this motel. Got the November Vets 15percent discount, which made the price even cheaper. Comfortable bed, clean, convenient laundry, very quiet. Will definitely stay again.

Room was nice - king bed was ok. Free breakfast and wifi. Breakfast choices were sausage, eggs, toast, waffles, bagels, cereal, coffee, juice. It wasn't bad. When we went to checkout, I had to wait a long time as the front desk person was also prepping and stocking breakfast so he was not at the desk.

We spent 3 nights at the end of September to visit our son at UT. We were somewhat put off in arrival by the desolate and unfinished look of the side and front of the hotel. They have a ways to go on their renovations and landscaping! However check-in was fine, service good, friendly staff, comfortable room near elevator. We... More

We stopped here while driving through Tennessee. We were basically just looking for an affordable place to stay for the night that was decently clean. Unfortunately, the room we stayed in was a little bit disgusting. For starters, the door had apparently been off it's hinges recently and didn't open easily. Next, all the furniture and carpet had stains on... More
