Our family drove 16.5 hours from Wisconsin to Tennessee straight through. We arrived at the hotel at 7am exhausted on the 4th of July. Our room was ready and check in was effortless. We took a nap and then began our activities about 2pm. We were there for 4-5 days and every day the staff were friendly , helpful with giving directions answering questions and even printing out google maps etc.. On one occasion we got lost coming back from a location and we called the hotel , told them where we were and they gave us directions as we were driving to get us back to the interstate so we knew how to get back to the hotel!
It rained every day we were there and we learned things in Tennessee do not shut down for rain so we kept going. Staff were helpful in getting us garbage bags for wet things and we even used them over heads and bodies a few times to stay dry.. The guest laundry was great to have for drying things as well!
The breakfast in the mornings was your typical Holiday Inn express breakfast but they had good fresh fruit options , offered chocolate milk and silk along with the white milk and the atmosphere I think made it even better. They have a large spacious area with a down south homey feel to it and the staff was very friendly and attentive .
They have a great business center as well ,but we did not have to use it because the Free WiFi was lightening fast on our laptop! I think the fastest connection at a hotel we have ever had .
We were very please with this hotel and the staff. We even found a housekeeping person who is a Packer Fan! woohooo!
The only negative for us was the pool and hot tub had a few issues I think they were working on and the Ice machine on 2nd floor ran out of ice after 1-2 buckets of ice. Other than that it was great and those were small things compared to everything else!
Also important to note. This location in Ooltewah is PERFECT. You are within 30 minutes of everything, mountains, rafting to downtown and look- out mountain. It is kind of a central location to the best attractions in the area and 2 hours from everything else like Six flag over Atlanta, Nashville, and Dollywood/ Pigeon forge. We could not have picked a better location for what we had planned. Everything we did was no further than 30 minutes away and most of it was less.
Be sure to check out the Hamilton Mall when you are there as well. Nice shopping area!
We would definitely stay here again on future trips!!
