I try and see the Tennessee Smokies baseball team at least a couple of times a year, with one of those involving an overnight stay. I've stayed here since I first started coming to Smokies games, annually, in 2009.
It is about a three-minute trip from the stadium, if that. The rooms always seem to be rather spacious, and my most recent stay was no exception. The TV was older, but still worked fine. Internet was good.
No problems with noise here, for me. It runs close to I-40, but it's not like on a service road right next to the interstate, if that makes sense. It's the first right you take after getting off at the exit (if you're coming from the east).
Breakfast consisted of sausage, biscuits, gravy, waffles, toast, cereal, muffins, etc. Everything seemed fairly well-stocked in spite of being close to the end of breakfast (it runs 7-10 on Saturdays).
When I checked in, there was a nice younger man who I talked to for a while, and seemed to know a bit about the baseball team, too. The lady overseeing breakfast was nice, as was the lady who handled my checkout.
The price is good (maybe a trade-off for having to travel a bit to get to Sevierville/Pigeon Forge/Gatlinburg?)
The only real issue for me isn't something that Quality Inn can control. When you go to leave and head to the Parkway, you have to head south (or right, when you get to it), due to its proximity to the traffic lights at I-40, I suppose. Even if you want to go back across the bridge to the ballpark, you have to turn right, then make a u-turn on up the road. It's curious that whoever is in charge of road construction/traffic engineering has yet to address this, yet they've expanded the Parkway to six lanes.
I haven't experienced a bad stay here. As long as they keep up the good work, I'll keep coming back.
