Wonderful Valentines Weekend

We attended an event at Maryville College and selected this hotel because it was within 5 miles of the College and had decent reviews. I also found a coupon in one of those discount books you find at the tourist information center. The coupon was accepted without fanfare for our two night weekend stay, but the manager insisted on keeping the whole coupon book. We checked into a nice sized warm clean two bed room at 6:30pm. No strange smells here, no questionable carpet, no bugs, no mold. The walls looked recently painted and the duvet and curtains new. The room included a coffee pot with coffee and teas, a microwave that we did not use and mini fridge that that kept our water cold. The water pressure was strong and the towels very white and soft. The sheets were very white, the mattress firm yet comfortable and there were three pillows on each bed. We did not bring our laptops so I have no commentary on the free high speed internet. Our cell phones worked well in the hotel. Although the hotel is less than a mile from the airport entrance, we did not experience any airport noise. The rooms heater, however, was loud when the fan was engaged. The hotel provided a help yourself hot breakfast to include waffles, coffee, tea, juices cold cereals, bagels, muffins, bacon, sausage patties, biscuits, gravy and those premade round scrambled eggs my husband calls egglets. The prefrozen sliced fruit was still semifrozen Sunday morning. The breakfast area is a bit small and the hotel fully booked so the front desk clerk brought in boxes so guests could take their breakfasts to their rooms. The surrounding areas has many restaurants and stores including a 24 hour drugstore. The hotel is located on a side street that is perpendicular to the main road, Alcoa Hwy 129, and is three hotels in. We used Ruby Tuesday as our landmark on where to turn in. All the staff we encountered were friendly, smiling and responsive. A very good value for the money..This was our first stay in a Country Inn and we would choose Country Inn in another city. We would definitely use this one on a return trip to Maryville College. Hands Four! 2/17/2014

Decent Hotel

The hotel is decent, seems fairly clean, and the staff were easy to work with. The television in our room was broken and you only saw part of the picture. They changed us to another room, but I believe that that TV is just waiting for the next guest. The lighting in the Bathroom is not great, but it's OK. The hotel was a little hard to find at first. I think this is partly due to some restrictions on the signs. For the money, it was a decent hotel and the breakfast was okay. We would probably look to something else, but would not be opposed to staying here again, either.

I had trouble finding the hotel with my GPS and the comfort inn is right next door...guess where I went instead of the country inn,? Did get to my room and it was very nice. Quiet stay ,friendly staff,of course they have the cookies and fruit available when ever you want that's a really nice touch.

Enjoyable Stay

Overall, we enjoyed our stay- but there were a few "hitches". We were there two nights in a room with a king bed, which gave good support toward the outside, but sunk in somewhat in the middle. Secondly, I woke up in the middle of the first night and could not get back to sleep because of the refrigerator making a strange whirling noise. After 20 minutes of this, I got up and unplugged it and then was able to get back to sleep. In the third place, the exhaust fan in the small bathroom did not work.These details are important for a comfortable stay. That is room #205. The room was clean and comfortable, generally. The TV and shower were very good. Breakfast was super. Staff was friendly and helpful.

Staff not very understanding

I did not make my connecting flight to so I called to inform the hotel as a courtesy and the staff were pretty unsympathetic to my situation. I understood no refund but I did not appreciate the attitude of the staff person at this hotel. Lost my travel bucks as well, need to say I will never fly into Knoxville again.
