“Great place to stay!”
Reviewed July 17, 2012

We booked rooms for our baseball team after other hotel reservations fell through. Cathy, the manager, was just wonderful. Justin, the front desk clerk, was very friendly and helpful. The night time clerk, whose name I missed getting, researched places for the team to visit and provide some great travel tips.

The reservations were extremely easy to make and the whole process was quick and easy. Highly recommend for groups, but other travelers should not be concerned that this is a "group hotel" as we were the only group here this weekend.

Other than the smell of smoke in the elevator and hallway on the 3rd floor, the property is exceptionally clean. The smoke is the reason for a rating of 4 instead of 5. Rooms with 2 beds have very comfortable queen sized beds. Ball teams come with a lot of luggage; there was plenty of space in the room for our stuff. As the coach's wife who has extra ball players, I booked a 2 queen suite that also had a pull out sofa; there was plenty of space for my 10 ball players to hang out and play x-box on the flat screen TV.

Breakfast was the usual fair at a "hot breakfast hotel" - eggs, sausage, biscuits, pastries, yogurt, boiled eggs, cereal, and make your own waffles in regular and blueberry flavors. The pool is indoor and there is a strong odor of chlorine in the enclosed space. It's a little on the small side, but was enough for the boys to have a good time along side the families who were also there.

The rooms are fairly typical for a new Comfort Inn and are more than adequate for families, singles, or groups. The hotel is about 10 minutes outside Knoxville; Target, grocery, and shopping are all within a short drive and there's a walking track park next door.

Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: 3rd floor includes both smoking and non-smoking. Hallway smells a little like smoke at times.

After getting caught up in construction on I-75 southbound in TN, this was a wonderful place to spend the night. We had initially looked at Jellico, right on the northern border, but quickly moved on after seeing the choices....:/

Just north of Knoxville and within easy driving distance to Great Smoky Nat'l Park...I think it was just over an hour or so....It was right off the freeway and though the entrance was a little hard to find, we found it no problem. It was 9:45 at night, so our visibility wasn't the greatest.

Check in was a breeze, even though we didn't have reservations. Pool was only open until 10, and the man checking us in almost felt bad for us that we couldn't use it. No worries, we were pretty tired after a full day.

Rooms were clean and roomy. Breakfast was wonderul. Had everything you could want and hope for.

Check out was just as easy. They had a mailbox in the lobby by the desk for outgoing mail.

Would definitely stay again, wish we would've had time to utilize all this hotel had to offer, but we'd definitely stop again if our journey's bring us here another time. Highly recommend to other travelers!

I have stayed at this hotel as part of a group twice, and if I return for the same event, I will plan to stay there again. It is clean, the breakfast is good and the staff is friendly. It's also at an exit off I75 that has plenty to offer without being over-crowded. If you need to spend the night - or a few nights - near Knoxville, this is a good place!

Very comfortable stay. When checking in the gal at the front desk was friendly and efficient. Our room was very clean, very comfortable bed, and very quiet. No noise from guests or traffic. Breakfast was the usual...eggs, sausage, waffles, cereal... Would stay here again.

Six nights in two stays in five months gave us a chance to really appreciate the depth of guest service at this property. We've come here because of proximity to the medical center as result of a relative's hospitalization.

Cathy, who assisted us at the front desk during both visits is a strong asset to the facility. She's attentive and very service oriented. It is the little details that add up to a quality experience that make this an award winning property.

We appreciated the eco program with recycled paper products in the bathroom and a recycling container in the lobby. Would love to see alternatives to the styrofoam in the dining area, though.

We enjoyed the indoor pool and hot tub-- clean, warm and comfortable. We used the easy to access and clean guest laundry.

Most of the property is non-smoking. Would have given an excellent rating if the entire facility was smoke-free.

Rooms were clean and well appointed.

Thanks for a comfortable stay.

Room Tip: Rooms away from the parking lot/elevator are quieter. Jacuzzi suite is very nice and well worth the...

We have stayed at this hotel at least three times now and it has been excellent every time. This is our midway stop on our way to Florida from Ontario, Canada. The receptionist is always friendly and helpful and the rooms are clean and very importantly, extremely quiet. The hotel is fairly new and is located a good distance from I-75 and the street off I-75, so there is no traffic noise. Breakfasts are fine with scrambled eggs, waffles, fruit etc..
