I stayed here for two nights over Thanksgiving Weekend and was delighted! I got a King Suite and it was well appointed. While it may have been a little more expensive than other rooms, the French doors between the living area and the bedroom helped keep the noise from the hallway from being a problem. They had the lobby area... More

We checked in after midnight. The rate was under $100 and the staff was pleasant. I appreciate southern hospitality. The Beds were comfy so we slept good. The decor was nice and updated. I like their Bath and Body Works toiletries provided. Breakfast was good. I don't usually find the complimentary breakfasts anything special. Theirs was no exception but It... More

Our family was traveling for Thanksgiving and we had reservations at this hotel for an overnight stop. This hotel was very clean. We had requested a crib and it was already in the room and set-up when we got there. We received an upgrade without asking as we are platinum members. This hotel had an indoor pool. We did not...

Stayed here on way back from New Orleans , cost more than I'd like however that was because the late hour and the only room type available was with a Jacuzzi besides a regular bath/ shower and that's the chance I took by not making a reservation, I would not hesitate to stay here again as the bed was firm...

Very nice hotel with no real problems or downside. However, considering the location, it was definitely more expensive than it should have been. Don't think it was worth the premium price when compared against the neighboring hotels. Still, as the old saying goes, "You pay your money and take your chances." Don't get me wrong, there's nothing against it --... More

This is our first trip to the Smokey Mountains. We were not familiar with the area, so took a stab in the dark and chose this hotel. We are so glad we did. Everything was great! Clean, nice rooms, friendly staff, and the breakfast is really good. They change it slightly every day and offer a nice variety of choices.... More

It was clean, with comfortable beds, and expected decor for this kind of hotel. Breakfast is included in the price of the room. Also what you would expect, some fruit, bread options, a pancake machine, bacon and sausage and the usual breakfast beverages. The attendant was present and engaged with the guests. It is located just off Interstate 40. Handy... More

We usually overnight in Newport when driving back from Myrtle Beach. It's a nice break on our way home to KY. This Holiday Inn is wonderful. Very clean. Breakfast is just what you need to get on the road.

very good looking hotel, looks brand new even though it's a few years old - they take a good care of it, the staff is okay, the room was clean, the price was average for HI, breakfast excellent...I have no complaints. I recommend it to all the visitors or travelers who pass through east TN.
