Just an over nighter on the Interstate. It was just fine. Would recommend. Scarcity of restaurants that will deliver!! We ended up going to the Food City and getting a roasted chicken and sides. Other than that, a good location.

This hotel is a good place to stay overnight on the way to Asheville. Staff are very friendly and hospitable. Breakfast is OK & coffee is great. Rooms are clean & beds comfortable. There has been a new remodel of the breakfast area. Not sure who made the decisions for the decorum but it are disappointing. Cannot believe they got... More

The room was nice and updated but the bathroom was poorly lit, needs more lighting for anyone putting on make up. Bed was comfy, it was easy to find, and the check in was quick. But I'm a priority club member and not even a bottle of water.

Exceptionally friendly staff and very reasonable rates. Breakfast was hot and fresh with good selections. Very comfortable bed. Paint on walls and furniture could be updated. Humming from in room refrigerator annoying in middle of night. Would stay again after first checking the room.

I read all the average and poor reviews be for selecting this hotel in the hope that I would not encounter the problems mentioned. My experience was different. I could not find any of the negative things mentioned. Just the opposite, all good. The newly renovated lobby looked nice. Food was good, bed comfortable, no unusual smells, staff was friendly....

Tried many hotels midway between home and Hilton Head and this is the best of them all. It is immaculate, modern and updated, quiet and conveniently located just a minute off I44 East. Take the bypass northeast and miss the Knoxville traffic. There is a really nice restaurant with southern style home cooking across the street - walk over if... More

While the lobby appeared freshly renovated, the rooms certainly could use some attention. Hallways and rooms seemed musty, tears and fraying stained carpeting. Cracked tiles and bathrooms in need of general updating. Room was clean and breakfast acceptable, but compared to other Holiday Inn Express locations this one falls short. Pool area also extremely small. We will look for another... More
