“Our Home Away from Home!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed November 20, 2013

On November 9, 2013 my husband and I were enroute home to Ohio from a great two-week vacation on Hilton Head Island when we experienced van trouble on I-40 outside Knoxville, TN. After being towed to an automobile dealership, we made nearby reservations at the Hioliday Inn Cedar Bluff which became our "home away from home" for the next several days while we awaited auto repairs.

Although we were unfamiliar with Knoxville, we were totally impressed by the southern hospitality afforded us at this full-service facility. From staff at the registsration desk to the maintenance lady on the third floor, we couldn't have been treated more like royalty. We were especially impressed by the wait staff in the cafe as well as the bar area where we were treated to performances by the Rocky Mountain Shaggers who gather Sunday evenings to dance and socialize.

The food, cleanliness and room accommodations are first-class and we would give this Holiday Inn and A+. We were totally imporessed and, despite the delay in getting home, we were thrilled with making new friends at the Holiday Inn Cedar Bluff who went above and beyond to make our stay a comfortable one.

Piqua, OH.

Room Tip: Third floor rooms are quiet and housekeeping staff very courteous.

We were so glad to find a great hotel on the edge of Knoxville with easy access off the freeway. Super check in service, super knowledge of the area, wonderful room and amenities. The room was beautiful and the bed was very comfaortable. We hope to travel through the area and stay at the Holiday Inn Cedar Bluff again.

I've been a dealer at various conventions for around 9 years. I have to say that my stay for a recent convention held here at the Holiday Inn was an excellent experience. Our rooms were very clean. The hotel space was fairly easy to navigate and was in a convenient location, and also very clean and not overly done, tacky or aged. The breakfast buffet that was offered in the cafe was very good, and the service there was top notch. The staff was amazing and I never saw one staff member that wasn't rushing around doing something to make other people comfortable, which I believe is one part team effort and one part southern hospitality. There was always someone asking how we were doing, even if we were just visiting with friends in the lounge. I hope that we will have this hotel available for future conventions. I love the Holiday Inn in Knoxville!!!

I visited this hotel recently for a convention and loved it! My favorite part about this hotel is the warm inviting atmosphere, especially the area around the pool with all the vegetation. It has a warm tropical and inviting feel that makes it very cozy and enjoyable. I loved spending time in this space. Main thing I want out of a hotel is to feel relaxed. Hotels with stark white walls, ultra high ceilings and opulent chandeliers have an in-your-face imposing and steril feel to me. Almost like a ritzy over-payed hospital or something. The bar is also very roomy and has a wonderful feel with lots of personality. I've heard they are going into renovation so I hope they are not about to change everything I like about the space just to follow suit with the latest steril decorative fad.

Every bit of the hotel staff I met was very friendly and helpful and did an amazing job working with the convention to make it a wonderful weekend to remember always.

We really appreciate you taking the time to write us a review and are thrilled that you enjoyed your stay. Regarding the renovations... Most of the work will be done in our guest rooms, but we will also be renovating the outside and updating things like the fitness center and game room. Cozy and inviting is what we are going for :)

I knew this hotel was the hotel for my group when I picked it out. I can't explain it, just a "feeling." Walked into this hotel back in February and didn't look anywhere else, I knew this was to be our convention's home. Bonnie Hall treated me with the upmost respect, including remembering me and greeting me by name outside of the hotel in chance meetings around Knoxville while living life! That showed me she genuinely cared for me and my group, we were more than just "money to the hotel." We booked every convention space the hotel had to offer; and they worked with us the best any hotel ever has. Doing the financial and business side of a convention is not easy, but they helped make it effortless. I dread the day that our convention out-grows this hotel.
The cleanliness, comfortable beds and amazing walk-in showers were just icing on the cake. All of the staff (in addition to Bonnie; Debbie, Keith, Rhonda and Caleb come to mind) are amazing professionals. Even then young man that cleaned my room was easy going. The large social area (Atrium) was perfect, every aspect of this hotel is wonderful. I was even amazed at the Bath and Body Works brand toiletries in the bathroom instead of just some generic kind.
If you are looking for a hotel to host a small convention/business gathering in Knoxville, this is the place for you.

Stayed here recently for a convention, and it was great! Hotel staff were very friendly and accommodating. The hotel layout was great for our needs. Location was close to a lot of stuff, including easy access from the interstate. Overall a very good experience.
