It is what it is. A Fairfield Inn. If a free Jimmy Dean Sausage biscuit breakfast with bad coffee and a basic room for under $100 excites you, then this is the place for you! The only good thing about this hotel is the close proximity to the airport. There is one decent Mexican restaurant close by with good margaritas to help you forget that you're staying at this dump but that's about it. Wouldn't lodge here for more than a night otherwise you'd get depressed listening to the staff complaining amongst themselves about how bad the hotel it is to work at. There is a Hampton close by but their hotels are no better. PIP lists are getting overlooked these days due to low occupancy rates. That is definitely the case at this hotel!

Room Tip: Get a room facing the back otherwise you hear every take-off and landing at the airport which is rig...

We stayed at this location on our motorcycle vacation. We parked our Harley close to the front door on the advice of the desk clerk. The next morning we were about to leave when I noticed someone had laid a cigar on the new seat I purchased less than 18 hours ago. We notified the desk and the manager filled out a report.
We stay in Marriott hotels at least 60 times a year. I will never stay in another Fairfield

It is rare to find a good hotel for under $100. Room was clean, the staff was friendly and courteous & honest. My son left an ipod touch in the hotel room when we checked out. The maid found it, turned it in, and they sent me the ipod touch in the mail! I asked the person at the desk about where to take the family to eat, they recommended Calhoun's (which ended up being a great call). I'd stay here again in a heartbeat.

This a a nice, clean Fairfield on a road with a few other hotels right off a fairly busy road/highway (somewhat limited access). It's a good distance from Knoxville, but since it is directly across from the airport I guess it is still considered a Knoxville suburb.
While I was pleased with the hotel, for future visits to the area, I will likely try to stay a bit closer in.
I can only comment on our room because I do not know if the other rooms are similar, but the beds are the softest I have ever slept on. Whether that is good or bad is a personal preference.

Imagine you are tired after driving for hours and look forward to getting to bed. You check in and are given a room the furthest away from the elevator...I was using points for my stay. Upon entering room you hear smoke alarm beeping. You call clerk and get another room...right next door...and then walk in to hear the same beeping from smoke alarm. You call clerk again and get another key for another room. On the third attempt you get a quiet room! Not a great way to getting a good night's sleep. The rest of the stay was fine and the room was fine. The third room I got had a fairly new air conditioner compared to the old units in the first two. The pool, gym, and breakfast was fine.

Room Tip: don't take the end room on a floor as they are the least used

This hotel is convenient to the airport. It is a basic hotel. I have not stayed at any other Fairfield so cannot compare. I have stayed at this one twice to get the megabonus Marriott is running. I would not stay there if I didn't need a couple of stays for the bonus. It seems clean enough, but it just doesn't feel "comfortable". A couple of things that I didn't like, the hotel does not leave your bill under your door. You have to go to the front desk to check out and get a copy of your bill. And, I noticed on both visits, the staff uses old rags to prop open storage or employee's only doors. That did not give me an overall good impression of the hotel. The HIlton is definitely far and above in appearance and quality.
