“Good Deal”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed May 7, 2014

My husband and I relocated to Richmond and we were in the process of buying a home so we stayed here for 3 weeks. It is nothing fancy but it is clean, quite, conveniently located close to town. The rooms are nice but dated and the bed is super comfortable. The place has been renamed to the Relax Inn and has new owners. The owners were very nice and were willing to work with us on the long term rate. I would stay here again!

this hotel was very dusty and caused my allergies went crazy. the bed was harder than the floor, where i slept, and the sheets were so itchy that i felt as though i had bugs all over me. the only part of the hotel stay that was ok was the desk clerk was polite. there were men partying in the parking lot outside my room almost all night, so we were kept awake and I felt unsafe in our stay. The free breakfast was nothing more than a donut and milk. overall this was a bad hotel stay.

Well, I have stayed at 5 Star in midtown NYC and lots of Hampton Inns etc. Now this place is not welcoming from the outside. But to be honest the rooms we got were clean. Seemed to have new carpet. smelled fresh, and bathroom was spotless. It was fine for an overnight off the highway. Didnt bother with breakfast.TV worked fine. for $29 it was actually a bargain.

I'm not even going to waste my time writing a lot. This was an absolute dump!!! One of the worst places I never stayed.
We arrived at the hotel and checked in at the Reception Building. She gave us our keys and we drove to our room. While driving through the lot I felt like I was driving through low income neighborhood. The sketchiest of people just hanging out not even looking liked they were visitors.
We took one step into the room and walked right back out and drove to the Reception Building and checked out. Let's put it this way, I would even let my child touch the floor much less anything else. You have been warned!!!!

We stayed at the Richmond Ky Knights Inn on April 24. It was the worse experience we have ever had in a hotel. The tubb didn't drain water as you showered. Tile in the bathroom was nasty. Not to mention you could tell there had been mold on it and it wasn't even glued down by the tubb.Carpet was so nasty we didn't even take our shoes off while walking around . All of the TV channels were fuzzy. Pillows were flat. Blanket had burn holes in it. Reported on the web site we viewed when booking the room the hotel had been previously remodeled. If thats their idea of remodeling I would have hated to see it before it was remodeled.
It 's safe to say we will never stay in a Knights Inn again. Definately wouldn't recommend.

the hotel was the cheapest so we decided to go, it smelled horribly musty, the doors were hard to lock, and it didn't feel very safe at all, oh yeah the continetnatl breakfast is ceareal, coffee, orange kool-aid, and toast which was gone when we got there. the only good thing was that the people running it were very friendly.
