“Enjoyed our stay...”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 1, 2013

We found this hotel to be just fine for 4 nights while we enjoyed some fantastic motorcycling on the great roads in the area. The beds were comfortable and the AC in the room worked well. We did not hear any noise from the airport across the road, but we also brought a small fan for noise. The breakfast was more than adequate. The hotel staff were all very friendly. In fact when we checked in on Sunday night, Teresa, the night manager, offered to move us into a room with a fridge & microwave since we were staying 4 nights, even though our reservation was for a room without one. We were lucky they weren't full so she could do that. We enjoyed our stay and would recommend this location as a good 'base camp' for motorcyclists. Plenty of room for trailers if you opt to not ride down.

We stayed in a room with two double beds. The bottom of one bed cover nearest the floor had what appeared to be specks of vomit. The bed cover on the other bed had a hole in it the size of an English pea. The bathroom grout was molded. The towels were thread bare from washing--thin and stiff. Our room was on the ground level nearest to the airport runway and highway. Until flight operations stopped for the night, every flight that took off or landed was a noticeable event. Trucks were heard all night.

Room Tip: If you stay here, ask for a room as far away from the highway and runway as possible.

Read most of the other reviews and found the hotel to be just fine. Yes, it is dated a little bit, but the room was fine. In fact, the towels, shower and bed were perfect. The continental breakfast in the morning was great too. The receptionist was very friendly and helpful. The only bad thing for those who may want to sleep during the day, is that you do hear the nearby airport traffic. After about 7 or 8 at night though, there wasn't anymore flights. The pool was clean and warm. Parking was abundant, in fact our spot seemed to be wide enough for a semi.

I would stay again. The price is right too!

Very convenient to the TYS airport in Knoxville. Easy on/easy off the main highways. Shuttle service available. Clean rooms and the staff is ready to help you find what you need! Breakfast included and wide range of items available.

Stayed here one night while passing through. The rate was moderately cheap. This hotel has not been renovated to upcoming Fairfield Inn standards. The room was ok and the bed was very comfortable. They give a goodie bag to Marriott Rewards members which shows the staff cares. Staff were very nice and fulfilled requests with a smile. All the exterior locks were in working order. Plenty of restaurants within walking distance. The Mexican place down the road was pretty good. Pool was jammed with kids. Elevator and halls smelled like 1989. Breakfast was actually pretty awesome. Jimmy Dean sandwiches were a nice touch. Looking forward to an update to the building and rooms. There was a brand new Courtyard just outside my window. May try that next time or the Comfort Suites next door. This hotel was good for a night but would not suggest a longer stay.

Room Tip: Choose room a front side of the hotel and you wont have the airport lighthouse flashing in your wind...

After our last stay overnight in a motel my wife and I were really apprehensive about staying in another motel When we arrived at the Fairfield Inn though, we were not disappointed. The only reason I can't give this place a 5 is was that the ceiling in the bathroom had water damage, the shower rod was a little out of adjustment and there was a bit of mold on the vent and sprinkler head in the bathroom, other than that I would recommend this motel. It is easy to see that the motel is older and been remodeled, but the staff was friendly, check in and out was a breeze.

Room Tip: It is noisy on the east side of the building, this motel is across from the airport so planes taking...

We arrived after 11 pm and had to find our own way to the hotel but it was quite close the airport so not big problem. The front desk clerk was friendly and helpful. Room was clean and up to date with comfortable bed and nice amenities (Pantene products). Very nice continental breakfast with some hot things like Jimmy Dean breakfast sandwiches. There were restaurants nearby. Good place to stay if you need a place before or after your flight. Very good value for an economy type hotel.
