Stayed in Powell because there was no vacancy anywhere in Knoxville, but I'm glad we did. Took us only about 15 minutes to get to the UT campus. This Comfort Inn is close to many restaurants, including Chick-fil-a, as well as grocery stores, medical offices, and a 24-hour drug store. The rooms seemed new, beds were comfy. Check in and check out was very quick.
What kept me from giving this hotel 5 stars: The front desk clerk told us breakfast on Saturday morning was served from 6-10, but at 9:30 there was no more waffle batter, the danish/breads case was seriously depleted, and the juice was room temperature. The only man I saw in charge of the breakfast went outside to smoke after he put away a crock pot (wonder what had been in that? gravy?). Yes, I guess I should have gone down to breakfast earlier, but I thought we'd still be able to get a waffle. My kids were a little disappointed.
Overall this is a nice hotel, and comparable to hotels we've stayed at on Kingston Pike and Strawberry Plains areas of Knoxville. Will consider again next time we're in Knoxville.
