I was pleasantly surprised by the friendly staff and level of service at this motel. Clean, comfortable room with full breakfast. Very quiet with little or no road noise. Get out of the rat race that is Pigeon Forge and relax as this motel that is convenient to I-40 and restaurants in the area.

You dont have a lot of choices in Newport so I checked the reviews and decided on this hotel. I travel for work so I stay in hotels weekly. Overall, it was nice. Nice staff and very friendly. The hotel is a few years old and if they continue with the level of maintenance it will show signs of wear... More

Was on our way to Gatlinburg and needed a place to stay. Very nice place! Rooms and beds very cozy. Staff was very friendly, and helpful. Had a full breakfast the next morning. We will stay here again if ever in the area again. It is so worth every penny :)

This is the best and newest place to stay in Newport. I have stayed in some others over the years and some are really gruesome so if you want to take no chances then stay here. For Newport this is five star but I give it four because they annoy me. How do they do it? Well, they get greedy... More

I have stayed here several times and is the only place I stay in the area. The people are friendly and they accommodations are good. Well worth the money. The people really make this the best Holiday Inn Express I've stayed at.

In spite of a special occasion with a lobby full of people honoring veterans (food, soft drinks, etc), check in was quick and everyone was very friendly. My room was very clean and very quiet. The bathtub faucet was loose but it worked perfectly. Breakfast was fresh and hot, but nothing spectacular-typical complimentary breakfast. Overall a very nice stay and... More

Choose this property because of its location on our road trip to Gatlinburg, only 45 minutes away. We were greeted immediately and cheerfully, with registration quickly accomplished with no glitches. Room was large, clean and comfortable. Free Wifi worked great. Got a recommendation from the front desk clerk for a nearby restaurant for dinner which was excellent, as promised. Highly... More

Stayed here on our recent trip to Nashville. This place is relatively new and is spotlessly clean. We were treated royally and the breakfast was to die for!! It was definitely a great place to stay and would choose it again..

We had the room with the king bed and jacuzzi tub. The room was clean with tall ceilings. The tub was big enough for my 6'5" husband and myself who is 5'9" (first time ever!) TV was dwarfed by the rest of the room. Would stay again!
