Happened to need a couple of nights on a budget in north Knoxville, and this property fit the bill for location and budget, but we were skeptical (as usual) on what the quality would be, knowing sometimes this chain has its problems, and the property is next to a busy interstate (I-75).
Needing the budget foremost this time, we chanced it. Glad we did.
Rooms were nice sized and very clean. Proof you don't need top dollar for basic cleanliness. The staff were all very friendly, further amenities that money does not really buy but are priceless. Our check-in clerk was friendly and even though the computer system lagged on him, he took it in good humor and got me registered with no problems. The night auditor was likewise very friendly and good personality about him when I needed an extra couple of pillows (yeah, its a budget bed, not bad but take a pillow, or ask the friendly staff). And when our room needed a light bulb in the bathroom, the room attendant immediately fixed it with a smile. At checkout, the clerk got me a photocopy I needed of a family document, no charge and friendly to boot.
The air unit worked well, the room was nice and quiet, well-lit and very safe feel to the place. Pool was nice and clean. Linens all clean and enough of them. And somehow, you couldn't hear the interstate nearby.
So, clean place, safe, comfortable, and friendly staff, for under $75. I've paid way more for way less...definitely recommend if you need an I-75 stop-over spot.
