I don't know who determines the Diamond Star AAA rating but I wanted to drop a quick note to describe our less than amicable experience at this hotel. I chose to reserve two rooms at the Red Roof Inn Knoxville Univ of Tenn for my recent family trip to Tennessee during Thanksgiving weekend through my Mid Atlantic AAA travel website....

We spent one night in this hotel on our way back home. It was a good place to take a rest before going on the road again. However, the room wasn't clean, the carpet was awful, there was no toilet paper, the bed top sheets were not so clean. The staff was friendly though.

Red Roof Inns welcome pets without a pet deposit. This is what we needed and the room worked perfect for this. The room was clean and in a good location. We saved a few bucks by booking it online. There are lots of places to eat close to the hotel.

We made reservation and when we arrived they gave us a first floor room that smelt like a used cat liter box. They were nice and moved us but I feel this should not have happened. The new room was clean and on the third floor.

Red Roof Inn is in a great location. Everything you need is within a ¼ mile. But the really pleasant part was the room (room 123) was very clean, the shower had great water pressure and everything worked. Kathy was very pleasant, much more pleasant than most of the people. She was in the midst of working a double shift...

This hotel is mixed. The Front desk clerk was super sweet but, talks your ear off. Sometimes all you want to do is get to your room, esp late night check ins. The room was a smoking room so we didn't expect pristine but, it was in bad need of paint and bleach. The furniture is a bad 80s era...

Overall my stay here was pleasant. Rooms are very clean. Staff was very courteous and great. Room service is also good. I have been to many red roof inns but this stay was my best in all. I would definitely stay here again and recommend same to others.

After two long days of driving this room was like an oasis in the desert. Bed was very comfortable. The shower head was the best I've ever seen, including some top resorts in the Caribbean and the South. The room was quiet and there was free coffee in the lobby. Close to everything. Easy access. Would definitely stay here again.
