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.
