Room was good I talked to Tim the manager there. I ask to see the room first before I paid cash. We just left the motel 6 under bad experience and didn't want to take chances. He was very nice and professional The price was a little higher then motel 6 but was well worth it. They had flat screen... More

We stayed here 5 nights with our family of 5. We were here for a wedding. We had 2 King rooms, 2 kings in each. The beds were very comfortable , the rooms were adjoining and had connecting doors (rooms 108 and 110). The rooms were clean and I liked the wooden floor which was especially suitable when the pool... More

We just needed a room for the night while traveling through the area and the price for the Red Roof Inn was right. We weren't expecting much but found a very lovely, clean, well equipped room with comfortable beds and good service. We had a few hours before bedtime and got some great advice from the front desk person about... More

Good budget hotel with pool and free breakfast. Doing many renovations, but waited until 9 AM to begin work on the roof. Location is excellent if traveling on I-75 and restaurants abound in the area. Grocery store about 2 blocks away. The staff was very helpful. Our room on the east side was very quiet. Air conditioning was strong--especially nice... More

Service was fine. But it felt like ownership had just changed and they are in the process of "cleaning up" the motel. It was "clean" as clean rusty tubs can be. Light fixtures were missing in the bathroom and the toilet seat was broken. Tv channels were staticky and the pool needs an overhaul. Breakfast was mediocre, no decaf coffee... More

My first time at a Red Roof. My cousin had mentioned that she always stayed at Red Roof & she's a real "upscale" girl, so I thought I'd give it a try.

I recently visited the red roof inn Knoxville north and was pleasantly surprised at the new rooms, I have stayed at a couple other inns at this exit and this is by far the best and Tim was great. This will be my stop in Knoxville from now on.
