Very friendly staff, and a large room - two queens, separate starting area with loveseat and coffee table. Also a wet bar and large bathroom. Nice breakfast with bacon, eggs, pancakes and cinnamon rolls. Will definitely stay here next time I'm visiting ORNL!

Stayed here for a couple nights for work and the only detractors were slightly noisy A/C, and breakfast was blah. I didn't expect the breakfast offerings to be great so was not disappointed- typical of this class of hotel. Free internet in the room was great, as was the room itself: good bed, spacious, clean, and new looking, and nice... More

I selected this property based on location, and an extremely low points price for free stays. It was exactly where I wanted to be, but admittedly serves a limited area of the greater Knoxville TN metropolitan area. Still, the price was almost too good to be true, and it was. I checked into this property on a leisure trip to... More

The hotel is extremely clean, has fantastic staff, and good breakfast. However, one of the main factors for me in a hotel room is the "on" function for the air conditioning unit. We switched the a/c to the "on" position to help drown out the noises from the hotel and other guests, but the a/c functioned as it was still... More

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel while exploring the area. It was VERY clean and quiet. The beds and choice of pillows made for a wonderful nights sleep. The staff was friendly, courteous and helpful. Would highly recommend this hotel.

We stayed at this hotel over the Fourth of July week. It is close to my brothers marina on Melton Hill Lake. The hotel was clean and the staff was very friendly, the breakfast was always fresh and hot as well. I also liked the little notes that housekeeping left every morning, it was a nice touch! Perfect location in... More

We stayed two nights here while in town. It was a clean hotel and the rooms were nice. Beds were rather high and I had trouble getting onto the bed, despite being average hight for an adult. The breakfast was delicious and kept well stocked and the staff was courteous. We had stayed at a Courtyard hotel the night before... More

Very nice hotel. Very very clean. Swimming pool outside was perfectly clean. Towels are given in the abundance for the pool. Chairs outside are brand new. Floors in lobby and surrounding areas are spotless. We stayed in the 2 queen bed suite. Beds were a little firm for our liking but were supplied with a ton of pillows. Couch in... More

Clean facilities, free breakfast, free internet, a short drive from Knoxville's downtown, I paid with my reward night points and the points for this hotel are half compared to other more centric locations.

Great big rooms, clean and up to date. Really good free breakfast. The staff was very helpful and friendly, although I believe there were some new employees training. Overall they did a good job. Clean pool. Good area close to restaurants and shopping.
