It was after dark & this place looked ok at the front desk & from the road. No one should have to stay here. The other reviews are correct in that the carpet was filthy with ground in dirt. We had our small dog & I didn't even want her to walk on the floor. The room smelled bad,the mattresses... More

My boyfriend and I stayed overnight at Knights Inn. We asked for a smoking room but got a non-smoking room. We let that go. The sink had no stopper so if you by chance dropped anything around the sink, it probably would have gone down the drain. THEN the toilet got stopped up. We called the front desk and told... More

This was the worst place I have ever seen. They should be shut down permanently. It was filthy and unsafe. I suggest you go to the Super 8 up the hill.

We chose this hotel based on the review left in July of 2005. The rooms were very clean. They had a nice lobby in which they served the continental breakfast. The food was good and they had a wide variety of items to select from. All breakfast items must be eaten in the lobby. They do not allow you to... More

Unfortunately I have to say I was VERY disappointed in the Knights Inn Hotel we stayed at. 1. We requested a non-smoking room and although there was a sign on the door stating this, there was an ashtray on the nightstand, burn marks on the top of the bathtub, and at least 3 burn marks on the top bedspread. It... More

This is the worst place to stay in Roanoke. Upon opening the door the carpet stank! There were torn bedsheets on the bed and when there were request for extra towels we were told "We don't have any towels". Practically had to beg for extra towels. We went as a group on a softball team and no one was satified... More

This is the worst hotel experience I have ever had. I was taking my 83 year old grandmother to visit her sister in VA...when temps reached about 83 and our air condition did not work...we called to get it fixed or get a new room. The technician came to our room looked at it..and said it was working...but before leaving... More

We stayed at the knights Inn the weekend after mothers day in 04. I see by reading other reviews that the showers still are not fixed. My sister put her child in that shower only to be scalded by the hot water, and then frozen the next min. On the third day of our stay, there wasn't any hot water... More

My room had a beer bottle cap stuck onto the wall, the sheets were not clean or washed, cockroaches in the bathroom, bathroom door would not close properly without damaging the door edge. The air conditioner was not working making the room warm and stuffy, and was held up by tape and had no grilles. The staff was rude especially... More

I have stayed at camp sites cleaner than this hotel. The shower is a lawsuit waiting to happen. I burned my scalp. Staff was not helpful. Rate promised during reservations was not honored. Stay somewhere else
