My wife and I were traveling to Nashville (from MD) so we decided to break up our trip into two days rather than killing ourselves on a 9+ hour drive in one day. We found the hotel with relative ease (use a GPS) and entered the hotel to be pleased with its cleanliness and professional staff. There was a nice gentleman who quickly gathered our room keys and made us feel very welcome. We asked the front desk for suggestions of local place to eat and they were very helpful in giving us suggestions and directions.
Our room was on the 2nd floor and was fairly large. We had a king bed that was pretty comfortable. Our toilet flushed very loudly, but that is about the only thing I could find negative about the hotel. They have a wide variety of food available for breakfast, a lot of it very healthy options. The pool and hot tub were very nice to use, we were the only ones to use it when we were there - that was nice!
The hotel has good prices, and boasts an excellent location (right off of I-40) and great price - you don't have to deal with heavy Knoxville traffic as you are about 12 miles outside of the actual city. If you're looking for a reasonable price for a quiet, nice hotel, this would be a great place to stay.
