Stayed here for our 5 day vacation!! Wonderful and friendly staff and a great breakfast! Loved the late breakfast on the weekends, it allowed us to sleep in after checking in and still be able to get some breakfast. Can't wait too come back!!

Good hotel for a weekend to Gatlinburg without paying the tourist prices. It's about a 20 minute drive to the Pigeon Forge area which keeps you out of the way. Friendly staff, OK breakfast. Do NOT stay in room 106, next to the business center unless you are a heavy sleeper. We were woken up at 4:30am with dishes clinging...

I traveled alone to Knoxville from NYC and this was a very welcoming hotel with a great staff on the desk when I arrived after a long drive. Enjoyed the room, nice and clean bathroom and everyone was very friendly and accomodating! Thanks for a safe stay!

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...

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....
