My family and I have been to Knoxville for several swim meets and have tried all the hotels in the area. When class is in session at the university, things can be a bit congested downtown, but we've found that the hotels in at exit 378 off Interstate 40 offer everything a family would need to get their day started and have a restful sleep.
We've stayed at the Red Roof Inn - no issues
We've stayed at the Holiday Inn - no issues
This time we stayed at the Comfort Inn and Suites - near a Baymont Inn and Suites and SEVERAL restaurants rangin from Famous Dave's, to Carabba's, to Outback, to Cracker Barrel and fast food from McDonalds, to Burger King, to Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks.
The next exit east (380) has a large mall, so that area gets congested and the traffic isn't good, so we find that 378 is perfect for us - close enough to town and just off the interstate.
The Comfort Inn was clean and restful. We had a queen/queen room and they had all the amenties you would want in a hotel including a hot breakfast in the morning with eggs and sausge.
The workout room was small and the treadmill didn't work, but they had an eliptical and a bike and some type of weight machine, but enough for you to do a workout.
They even had washers/dryers - so if you're traveling, great place to stop over.
I would recommend if you're a swim family and heading this way, you can walk to Carabba's and Outback and get your breakfast and hit the pool.
