If you're looking for a four or five star hotel, look elsewhere. If you want a good overnight stop that's pet friendly, keep reading.

We made an overnight stop here on our way to Atlanta. While not a new hotel, it is maintained in good condition. There's plenty of parking and-surprise--no potholes in the parking lot! (You can't say that about a lot of businesses nowadays.)

The room, sink area, bathroom and bedding were clean. We asked for extra towels as the standard supply left in the room isn't really enough for two adults.

The hotel is located less than 1 minute off Interstate 75 with restaurants and gas stations in the area.

A big thank you to this Quality Inn's management and staff for being a pet-friendly hotel!

And yes, we would stay here again!

We stayed here Veteran's Day to attend a concert at the Knoxville Civic Coliseum. It was very easy to find and the two rooms (although not too big) were sufficient for our needs. We had 4 people in one room and 2 in another. There was an Applebee's and Cracker Barrel both conveniently located (could have walked to Applebee's), as well as an O'Charley's that was also within walking distance. Several gas stations located with easy access to and from. The hotel was located near a light so it was not hard to get in and out and the interstate was easily accessible from the hotel as well. Front desk staff was very nice. They had what appeared to be a reasonable breakfast included in the room stay, but we didn't stop to eat before getting back on the road. The beds were amazingly comfortable, and we had a hair dryer, iron and ironing board, small fridge and microwave included.

My husband and I had to stop sooner than expected on our road-trip. We quickly made reservations on our way to the hotel with no issue at all. We checked in around 4:00 p.m., had dinner and spent the rest of the night watching the cable provided in the room. Of most importance is that the room was in amazing condition and was super clean. Also, there are plenty of restaurants surrounding the hotel that you can walk or drive to; nothing fancy, but plenty of options. The hotel was also easy enough to get to from the interstate and the price was amazing for a quick one night stop over. The parking lot wraps around the hotel (you can see your car from your room) so you don't have to walk far to get from your car to your room. The staff was friendly, and checking in and out was efficient. The pet fee was $10 per pet.

We were in town over the Labor Day weekend. The beds were very comfortable as were the feather pillows. The room was relatively clean although we found a couple of strands of hair in the bathtub. The room came with a refrigerator, but no microwave. Our sink was slow to drain which was annoying, but not a deal breaker. The noise level can be high since rooms are outside and its near a highway. Most of the noise came from the other guests and the vehicles in the parking lot. Being near the highway made it easy to find. Its not in downtown Knoxville, but not that far away. If you're just looking for a decent places to stay for not a lot of money, this may be your spot.

It's a Quality Inn - as such, we didn't have super high expectations, but all the expectations we had were met. It's clean, quiet, and comfortable. All the staff that we encountered were very friendly and helpful. We need a safe and clean place to lay our heads en route to Memphis and this hit the spot!

Room Tip: Room 231 was more than adequate.

Hubbie and I were passing through with our two dogs. Our room was right in front of a grassy area. The room was showing a little wear and tear, but met our needs just fine. O'Charley's is walking distance just across the parking lot. The service and food was wonderful. There was a mini fridge in the room as well.

My family and I stayed here along with family from Florida and Louisiana. I personally was ver y pleased. The motel staff was very friendly and helpful. The continental breakfast was much more than that! Excellent breakfast and plenty of it! Even had scrambled eggs and make your own hot waffles :D. The pool was extremely clean and we spent alot of time there. The rooms were clean and the beds were the most comfortable I've ever slept on in a motel :D. The only thing I didn't like at the time was the noise from the power sprayer, but then they were in the process of upgrading the entire motel while we were there and it was during the week and not the weekend. They were also painting the entire motel. I will definitely stay here again:D.

Room Tip: We were on the backside of the motel. No beautiful views, but no problem with noise either.
