The good: The HIE Farragut is easy-off, easy-on I-40. Very clean, well managed, stays booked, so book weeks ahead. Has a salt water indoor pool--how cool is that? Staff tolerated my constant changes in reservations prior to arrival without getting angry with me. If I were them I would have been angry, but they were very nice. Breakfasts are standard HIE fare; if you've eaten one breakfast at an HIE, you've eaten them all. Stay away from the "scrambled eggs" at an HIE. A family member thought the beds were "too firm" at the Farragut HIE, but that person is way too hard to please, I liked the beds, just fine, no problems. Quiet location, very safe, very clean. The bad: we ended up traveling at least once a day to Turkey Creek to shop for something. If you are staying a week or more in Knoxville and can afford Homewood Suites in Turkey Creek, stay there, it's much nicer, way better breakfasts and has an unadvertised "Manager's Special" dinner M-F, great beds, great location near great shopping and restaurants, better floor plan for suites with doors between suite room and bedroom, nice kitchenette, real dishes and cookware in each suite, very clean. Unfortunately for Farragut HIE and every other hotel nationwide, I now judge everything against Homewood Suites in Turkey Creek. Twice, I've also stayed at the Baymont right near Farragut HIE. Horrible experience both times at the Baymont (bedbugs, leaky air conditioners so 1/2 carpeting was sopping wet, rude staff). I noticed Country Inn and Suites/Comfort Inn is right across the street from the Farragut HIE and the Baymont, I'll stay there next time to check it out.
