If you are travelling I-40 E from Knoxville, and want to spend the night before you hit the Smokies, then don't stay at Sevierville, don't stay at Dandridge, wait until you get to Newport. This is one exquisite HIE, hidden from view off I-40 turn right at exit, and on the left. This particular HIE expressly caters to those with handicaps. They have a two queen with a walk in shower and a shower seat firmly attached to the wall. For those recovering from knee or hip replacement surgery, or weak knees or hips, this is perfect. Clean rooms, quiet, and extremely modern. They only negative seems to be some management issues due to problems with employees, as our very pleasant breakfast lady, was told at the last minute she had to stay and help with housekeeping. otherwise, a great stay. I highly recommend this HIE - the best one between Knoxville and Asheville, and one of the best ones this reviewer has ever stayed in - the one in Lewisburg, WV is still the best. I highly recommend this property.
