Made a phone reservation with Orbitz for the Merchant Center hotel in Knoxville. Asked specifically if there was a pet fee. The Orbitz rep checked and said pets were free and were allowed if they were under 20 lbs. When we checked in at 6PM I mentioned our dog and was told that they charged an extra $20 fee for... More

I was in Knoxville to make a condolence visit and spent two nights at this location. It is an older property but generally has been maintained. Friendly staff, good location and easy on the wallet. I really enjoyed the shower.

The beds were comfortable and the rooms were clean. Our room was near the freeway, and I was awaken several times to the noise. They offered a variety of fresh fruit for breakfast. I got a strawberry waffle with bacon which was good.

Needed a place on the way home, and it worked for the night. Room was relatively clean, and it was less than staying in one of the tourist trap places near Gatlinburg. Room was clean, and the Hotel staff were friendly. Breakfast wasn't bad either.

As a Choice Privileges member, I have been pretty disappointed in the choice hotels that I've stayed at recently. Their website makes it sound like such a great place, but you are sadly disappointed when you arrive. So, when I booked this hotel with reward points, I wasn't expecting much. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice clean... More

We took a chance on this hotel, because all surrounding 3 star hotels were priced outrageously high. This hotel was very clean, lobby was well-appointed, pool area and pool were clean and tidily arranged. The room was a bit more basic than I prefer, but certainly very suitable for 1 night. It was very clean and the bathroom was spotless.... More

Great price, easy location. Should not be a Clarion level hotel for Choice brands. More along the lines of a Quality Inn. No microwave/fridge in room. No blackout curtains. Only sheer curtains that allowed all light in. WiFi did not work AT ALL Room was clean and staff was courteous and hospitable.

There are a lot of hotels in this area and I'm glad I chose this one. The room was clean and the furnishings are in good condition. The staff was courteous and despite the help wanted sign I saw no indication that they were understaffed. I didn't have time to go to the pool but it drew a large crowd.... More

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The morning breakfast was good. I do think the couch in the lobby needed attention and the arms were dirty and in need of cleaning. The chair rail was chipped and in need of painting. The computer system was out because of a storm and I was told that I couldn't... More

We stayed two nights as part of a campus visit for my daughter who is considering UT. Rate was very reasonable, and room was as expected for the price. Location was convenient to the university. Only complaints we had are that the beds are small, and if you stay on the side closest to the highway, the noise is very... More
