That's all I have to say! Room 249! We were told that all the rooms had been renovated which basically meant they put in wood floors, remodeled the bathrooms and painted. Same old worn damaged furniture, walls were banged up, smelled musty, and they obviously didn't get new mattresses. Even though the staff was as courteous as could be, do...

We chose this hotel because of the pet policy. It is older, and lacking sufficient sound proofing, but otherwise, okay. Breakfast was basic. It is centrally located for the west Knoxville area, and close to interstate 40, so easy to find. The staff was friendly and helpful.

The front desk staff in particular Jeff on evening shift and Tish on morning shift really had their act together. This Red Roof Inn is best by far that I have stayed in. The cleanliness was awesome and the hotel itself is first rate for the cost. Extreme value.

My best friend and I were helping another friend of ours move. He booked this place based on two factors: 1.) It was pet friendly (we were traveling with a VERY skittish feline) and 2.) on another site, it was apparently very highly reviewed. *[

I tend to be someone that picks a hotel with good reviews but on the lower price end. I want a clean room with no frills, just a comfortable place to sleep and go on about my day.

Traveling through Knoxville, we came across the Red Roof Inn in the TN coupon book we got at the TN welcome center. We had never stayed at a Red Roof Inn and this place exceeded our expectations.

The staff was very friendly and the room was nice and clean and comfortable. The only unusual thing: there was track lighting in the center of the ceiling, and no place to turn the lights on. That was not a problem, but I just wondered why they were there. The bad thing: I was charged twice, once by your site...
