We stayed here for one night. Room was spacious and clean. Front desk staff was friendly and checkin was quick. Many area restaurants and stores. For the value , you cannot beat it. We will stay here again when in Knoxville.

The hotel was convenient to freeway. Very clean rooms, polite and helpful staff. Bed very comfortable but just regular hotel pillows. Basic bathroom but very clean. Coffee and fridge in room. Breakfast very good for economy hotel. Adquate parking.Hint..don't take room near ice machine. For price, you won't do any better.

We stayed 2 nights at this hotel. The room was clean and comfortable, though the sheets were pretty thin and breakfast is minimal (but there are places nearby for a decent meal). The wifi was great! It's conveniently located just a couple of blocks from I-75. Next time we're in Knoxville, would stay here again.

The front desk was friendly. The bathroom fan and room air conditioner were noisy. The room was clean but needed to be updated. The bed was comfortable. I realize I went to an economy hotel and all and all this was a fine place to say save that noise.

On a road trip and all we're looking for is clean rooms, decent beds and a great price. This econo lodge hit all the marks. Stayed here for a UT game. For the price it was great. Clean rooms, flat screen tvs. Other hotels with bad ratings in the same area were 25-50% more expensive. One thing to note this... More

For the sake of the REAL subject for this review, I'll overlook the room's bad smell and the extremely loud parking lot at all hours of the night. We made a reservation for a Saturday night since we were traveling with our child's sports team. Later called their office to amend this reservation by adding a Friday night stay to... More

This is a very nice place--well kept and clean. The room was a little small due to the large bed taking up a lot of room. However, the room was very clean, which trumps the smallness, at least by my standards. The bed was rather soft, which some people might like. I personally prefer a very hard bed, as I... More

I cannot review their rooms but I can rate their customer service. We booked a room through Choice Hotels. I found out they didn't book us for the night we wanted but the wrong night. I called immediately and they told me nothing could be done, that I had missed my reservation and they were not going to refund my... More
