Trip Advisor and the reviews rating the place as #2 out of 83 places in Knoxville sure did not fit our experience. Wouldn't stay there again or recommend it as such. We stayed two nights. The hotel is about 15 miles from downtown K'ville and certainly not worth going that far out for this hotel, if your focus of the visit is in K'ville as was ours--- to go to a UT football goame and vist our son and his girl friend who live and work in K'ville.
The corridors were noisy with teenagers and younger playing up and down the halls and in the elevators. We had to use the steps from tjhe 3rd floor, although we could hear kids laughing and playing in the elevator--the one elevator in the hotel.
When we checked in, we found the room itself was okay but it was not well serviced e.g. no soap or shampooo, the coffee maker leaked when you filled it and the toilet ran constantly with every other flush. When we rasied these issues, they were promptly addressed. You just expect a place rated #2 of 83 not to have those kind of problems and charge almost $100/night plus taxes.
The breakfast, rated so highly in another review , was "average" at best . We have stayed at many similar places where the breakfasts were much better.
Just to put this in perspective, we are very exeperiened travelers and stayed at similar place as well as top of the line places. This hotel is not a 2 of 83. It is typical 2.5 star with clean rooms.
