The hotel is your standard Holiday Inn, but just a couple blocks from the cute downtown area. We were greeted warmly by reception, even with the chaos of loud people checking in for a Cornhole Tournament(hilarious:). We asked for a quiet room in the almost full hotel , the room was great and the bed super comfy. The only downside...

My wife and I stayed here while she attended a conference. First let me start with the positive. The staff was outstanding and very friendly. Every staff member I encountered greeted me with heartfelt enthusiasm. One staff member at breakfast named Michael was particularly outstanding. Not that I suggest that this will work for you, but I was really late...

Have stayed at this hotel many times. It is close to UTK and downtown. Easy access to interstate. It is downtown area so you may hear city noise such as firetrucks, police, cars, etc. Rooms have always been clean and nice. Food in restaurant is good. Walk to park behind hotel.

This Holiday Inn has been renovated. The room was very clean and spacious. The bathroom on the other hand is very tiny. The ironing board has the worst pad on it. I ironed a shirt and I could see imprints of the holes from the ironing board on the shirt! The gym leaves something to be desired. Only 2 treadmills...

The room was clean and well appointed, although the bathroom was a little small. The rooms were quiet and we had a view of downtown from the eighth floor. The location is great. Very close to the interstate and walking distance to the river and downtown foodspots.
