“Great Stay”
Reviewed August 7, 2012

My family stayed one night on our way to South Carolina. Great location right off of I-40 with lots of restaurants to choose from. My kids enjoyed the pool and the cookies. The room was clean, but the furniture did show lots of wear. The breakfast area was very busy the next morning and the hostess seemed a bit stressed. She did however keep everything stocked and was very nice. Nice place to stay.

The hotel was great. Clean, reasonable and on I40 close to Knoxville, TN.

The room was clean with a large 42 LED screen.


Great Breakfast including waffles, Biscuit & Gravy, Sausage, etc!


The hotel us pet friendly. They have treats in lobby and my dog loved being welcomed after a long day on road trip!

We stayed one night, just passing through. They allow pets and our room was very large, clean, and well appointed. The carpet shows some signs of spot cleaning (probably after pet accidents?) but there was absolutely no smell at all and our dog apparently didn't detect any other pet having ever been here. The hotel was fully booked, but our room was super quiet so it was as if we had the whole hotel to ourselves. Very comfortable bed, decent free breakfast, several nearby places to get dinner last night, easy to access wi-fi -- we would stay here again for sure.

We stayed here as we were passing through town. We did not have a reservation but scored one of the last non smoking rooms on a Friday night. There was obviously a big group staying there and there had been lots of power outages due to storms in the area. The front desk clerk seemed a little offput, but the lady who was helping other guests seemed very nice. The room was clean and quiet (even though right next to the stairwell). Apparently there was a crying baby, as I could hear it in the hall, but I could not hear it in our room (bonus!). Breakfast was what we always have at a Holiday Inn Express, but that's just how I like it!

Brief review of one quick night here on business trip; friendly, clean, easy check in/out, very comfortable bed, quiet, good ventilation in room, great breakfast, referred me to a great Italian restaurant (Puleo's Grille) just down the road Room had just a hint of "motel" smell, but all in all, nice place.

The room felt a little dingy and unclean. The bed lacked alot and our pillows were lumpy and flat. I really expected more from reviews I had read. The breakfast was however good.

We stayed here for one night in June 2012. They accept pets, and this was the reason that we stayed here. The staff at the front desk were very nice and helpful. The room was good sized, and even though we were next to the lobby, very quiet. Most importantly, the room and common areas were clean. There is free Wi-Fi and breakfast, though as expected this is basic. Would definitely stay here again.
