Very smooth check in and our room was clean and comfortable (aside from a little mold on the shower curtain but that didn't bother me). The hotel was sold out the night we were there but you couldn't tell. We didn't hear anyone around us and had no issues with noise as you might expect with a hotel that was...

We were expected, warmly welcomed and able to get into our room with a minimum of fuss. We were upgraded to a King suite, which was delightful, but the orientation of the room was problematic for us in that my husband was working at the desk and was frozen, while no cool air made its way kitty-corner to where the...

We needed a place for overnight near a wedding venue. I looked at trip advisor and found this place looked pretty good. So, we booked the night and it did not disappoint! The staff was very nice, the hotel was clean and well maintained! It is very easy to get to, right off the interstate.

We have stayed here 3 times now.

The Knoxville HIE has the same good standards as expected from a HIE. There was good parking for our truck pulling a trailer and it was easy on and off the interstate. The room was clean and comfortable. Some of the hot breakfast foods had been sitting to long and were not tasty. Overall, a good choice.
