Great place to stay, helpful and friendly staff, CLEAN

From making the reservations to trying to use a coupon that Enterprise couldn't figure out for us off their website, we spoke to Manager and he was so helpful. The room was very clean when we arrived and it just felt great walking in. Air was already on, everything smelled clean, was cleaned and we didn't need for anything. The staff was great and helpful. Check in and out was so easy. A few miles away from downtown Knoxville but right off the exit off I 40. We had never stayed at a Holiday Inn but from now on we will. The pet fee was a little high per day, but in the room we stayed in it was clean and you would have never known any pet had been there before unlike other places we have been. It was worth the money, easy access to the lawn and plenty of room to walk the dog.. Thanks Again!.. Thanks Manager Scott for being so helpful..

Game Day Hotel

Came into town the night before the game and had a pleasant stay. Room was clean, beds were super comfortable and breakfast was great! They even had a shuttle to the game (we didn't know ahead of time, so we didn't use it).

Great place to visit my UT daughter and stay for the weekend!

This was the nicest hotel I have been to in a long while! This ranks up there with the top quality $200 a night room motels! The bathroom was no nicely organized and decorated. I wish I could stay again next month, but they were out of rooms!

Good, Clean, Simple Place

Pleased with hotel experience. Nothing fancy, but clean and comfortable. My wife is real sensitive about hotel cleanliness and this place passed mustard with her!

I asked in advance for a ground floor. I got a room in the forth floor. Otherwise the accomodations were OK.
