My boyfriend and I were headed to Tennessee to visit my dad. We arrived in the Knoxville area really, really late at night, and we had to make a stopover before continuing our trip. We couldn't find any hotels that had vacancies in the area, but the Comfort Inn in Powell was recommended to me. Well, I called, and they had last minute vacancies for three nights! After 12 hours of driving, you can imagine how relieved we were.

Not only did they have a vacancy, they also had their accessible room available, and at a very fair price (my boyfriend is a military veteran, so they gave us the 10% discount). We got the two queen beds, and the room was huge. Bathroom was more than adequate, minus the weird yellow-ish lighting inside. Staff was very accommodating and allowed us a late check-out on our last day there. Beds were comfortable, temperature was good. Only con was that it was on the ground floor and facing the parking lot, so we heard a lot of foot and car traffic right outside our window.

The room comes with a mini-fridge and a microwave. Downtown Knoxville is only a short drive away, as well. And since we always leave the room late, they were always willing to clean it even in the late afternoon/early evening when asked, and when they had staff available.

Their pool and gym had just opened back up when we arrived, but we spent most the weekend recovering from the drive, so we didn't get to check it out. We didn't wake up early enough to try the breakfast either, but I've heard good things. Also, very ample parking.

Had a great stay and would not hesitate to return here the next time we're in need of a hotel in the Knoxville area!

Traveling alone with my dog I am particular about where I stay and chose this Comfort Inn because of the reviews. Not only was it clean and conveniently located to my daughter's new house, the staff was friendly and I had easy access to take my dog outside. I was in the room closest to the outside door which made it easy. She is used to hotels but didn't have to ride elevators nor was she spooked by the neighbors next door. There were plenty of restaurants to chose from as well. I personally appreciated the walking track next door, and even though it said no pets on the track (part of a health club facility) the hotel reassured me they had a membership and to pick up my dog's poop, which I would do anyway! The internet was also decent which can be problematic, and the bed was comfortable as well. One of my biggest pleasant surprises was a decent shower! The shower head was great, and that was the best water pressure I think I've ever had at a hotel! Because of Covid restrictions, there was a sack breakfast that did have a Jimmy Dean sandwich as well as a granola bar and chocolate muffin to pick up at the front desk. They did have their coffee and juice machines in operation. The price was fair, although the $25 a night charge for the dog was more than I usually pay. Overall I was very pleased with my stay and do recommend this hotel.

Staff was friendly. Stayed in Room 205.

Left bolt on toilet seat was broken and allowed the seat to slide sideways. The sink faucet was like a shower head...makes the water bounce off your hand. Nightstand light bulb out. Breakfast was a grab 'n go with a muffin, granola bar, unsweetened applesauce cup, and a cheese stick.

Ended up moving to a different hotel for remaining nights.

Front desk employee for morning check out was not wearing his face mask appropriately. The employee was wearing his mask on his chin. Considering he was dealing with guests/handing out “grab and go” breakfast bags, this is very unsafe.

This hotel definitely needs some updates/maintenance. The closet door was duct taped as an easy fix it appeared. The wallpaper is peeling off the walls in the bathroom. The heating/air unit in the room was pretty gross. Appeared it had not been cleaned (found this out when I looked at it) after waking up congested. For allergy sufferers, this is not good. The pool was decent, but the hot tub/jacuzzi had some green mold residue and could use a good deep clean.

The grab and go breakfast was good; a muffin, applesauce and granola bar.

Overall this stay was not of expected from a Comfort Inn. Would not stay here again.

I was in need of a property that was close to the North Knoxville Medical Center where my wife was being treated. I booked the property online and had a good senior citizen rate of $80.00.

I arrived at 16:00 and was greated by the current front deck manager Thomas. It was nice to have Mozart on the lobby sound system. Thomas is a classical music lover and an aspiring musician.

The room appeared to have been recently refurbished. Everything was spotless with good lighting and proper outlets at the work space. There are several restaurants in the same business area as the hotel. Breakfast service had been reduced due to the current virus.

Not knowing what to expect from the hospital ICU's department I asked Thomas if there was a hospital related rate that the hotel offered. He said yes so I booked two more nights. It was about $10.00 less than the senior citizen rate. I was concerned about cancellation fees if I didn't need the extra nights. He said not to worry about it.

Unfortunatley my wife died the next morning so I went and signed off on the hospital paperwork and headed home to our mountain cabin in Cosby about 60 miles away.

I check the billing a couple of days later and I was only charged for the one night I stayed.

If you are in need of a property near the hospital this is the place to go. Thomas is a true asset to this property.

We stopped for one night on a long road trip to South Carolina. The staff member at the desk was quick and courteous. We didn’t swim but the pool and hot tub seemed nice. The room itself was fairly outdated and didn’t seem very clean (old moldy caulk in bathroom), carpets were worn/dirty, and the small fridge wasn’t turned on so it wasn’t usable for our one night stay. Breakfast was typical for this type of hotel - not terribly tasty but was nice to have as an option. The coffee in both the room and the breakfast area were both terrible - couldn’t drink either and I’m not very picky when it comes to coffee.

Just a stop for the night.

Most Comfort Inn’s we have stayed in are usually a facility that was run under a different name and Comfort took such over, on the contrary, this Comfort Inn was brand new and well appointed. Giving this facility a 4.5 hinge rating (scale of 0-5). This hotel had a two-station electric car fast charger (30-45 minutes for a charge). To activate / pay for the charge you must use your phone app to start the charge.

Could not have been better, from the facility & breakfast to the service and staff. Exceptionally nice and clean.
More expensive than I usually choose, but it was a one-night Saturday stay, and the clerk pointed out that the "non-UT-homegame" weekend is when people plan weddings! So it was just as full as a football weekend!

We stayed here on our roadtrip back home. We were deciding between a few hotels, including one we stayed at on our way down. People who had recently reviewed this hotel were either delusional from lack of sleep or really generous. This hotel had received pretty good reviews and multiple people stated that it was renovated. Renovated, yes. Done well? Far from it.

Our room: nasty smell, faucet handles were loose and did not even match. Toilet lid was loose and didn't seem to fit properly. Air conditioner did not work well at all. We has it cranked all the way and we were sweating.

Pet policy: I have never stayed at a pet friendly hotel where they charged per dog. For a hotel of this standard, a $25USD/dog fee seemed atrocious.

Staff: nothing to really mention because we checked in late and were out early.

We have never stayed at a Comfort Inn before and we will never again. If this is considered renovated, I quiver at non-renovated.
