Ranked #51 of 87 Hotels in Knoxville
Reviewed September 20, 2012

Checking in late Friday night after an arduous day of travel, I received a warm greeting and swift check-in. The hotel was very clean (don't know what some of the previous reviewers are talking about) and it looks like some updating has recently taken place. The room was spacious and clean, and the breakfast was nice. I would have given a top score, if I hadn't been in a room on the side that faces the highway - even with the room darkening curtain pulled, I was still aware of truck traffic much of the night. But the way the hotel is situated, half the building faces this way so it is what it is. But there are cute little balconies on each room, and it was nice to be able to open the sliding door and get a feel for the weather.
I will stay here again.

Room Tip: ask for an odd numbered room to be away from the highway side

I am very sorry to hear about your experience during your stay with us. Our Housekeeping Staff is trained to inform our front desk and management about anything that is out of order or that needs repair in a guest room and it looks like this time we failed to do our job.

There is no excuse for the problems that you encountered. I am sure that you reported these problems to our front desk staff so that we could address your concerns right away or move you to another room so I will check with them to see why your problems were not taken care off.

I just got back from vacation and would like to personally inspect the room that you were in. Please send me an email with the room number that you were in or your full name and the dates that you stayed with us. Email: jimsullivan.clarionhotel@comcast.net Thank you, Jim

The room was very big and the furniture was dated but it was clean and comfortable. The front desk staff was nice but definitely not friendly - minus the housekeeper who wished us a very nice day and safe travels (she saw we were on a motorcycle). That really made my day that she made the extra effort to say something to us. The eggs for breakfast were the best I've ever had at a hotel.

I am happy with my stay at the Clarion Inn for the past few days. Although the rooms are small and dated they are clean! The staff is friendly and the hotel is a convenient jog to UT. I enjoyed swimming in the pool. They are always cleaning. Suggestions: order new dining room chairs.

We stayed 2 nights bc we had no air at our place and we absolutely loved it. Smells, looks, feels clean. We even got military discount without asking for it. She (clerk) asked us for discounts. They have separate towels for the pool. Breakfast was very good. Will stay again..... Thank you for such a good experience.
