Recent guest reviews

I've always had good experiences with Holiday Inn Express, and their Caryville hotel is no exception. My room was delightful - spacious, sunny, and spotlessly clean, with quiet neighbors. It was stocked with all of the expected amenities, such as a large TV, a refrigerator and microwave, a Keurig coffee maker, a hair dryer and an iron. I didn't bring shaving cream, so the friendly folks at the desk gave me a complimentary can. Their wifi is top-notch - my computer connected without having to fiddle with passwords, and it worked flawlessly. The complimentary breakfast is great, featuring pancakes, scrambled eggs, several types of sausage, cheese omelettes, bagels and toast, ripe bananas, cereal, fresh coffee and orange juice. I love the pancake machine that most Holiday Inns have! When I pressed the button for pancakes, I got an error message, which I brought to the attention of one of the servers. She fixed it and brought me a plate of pancakes a couple of minutes later. The only thing out of place was the computer in the lobby, which I needed to print my airline boarding pass. Someone had turned it on, but it needed more attention to be fully functional. Being something of a computer whiz, I fixed it myself. But I'm sure the staff at the front desk would have done it for anyone who brought the problem to their attention. Caryville is a small town, so it was especially good to find a top-notch hotel here. The rates are reasonable, the staff is professional and eager to please, and it's an attractive, comfortable place to stay. I'll definitely be back!

This hotel is right off the highway. The rooms are clean and the beds were comfortable. They offer a nice breakfast with a variety of choices. The staff was very helpful. We recommend thia hotel and will stay here again.

The property seems pretty new and offers a great place to rest after a lot of time on the road. Caryville isn't exactly in the center of it all, but the hotel amenities are well maintained, the rooms are clean and it's pretty much just right for what you're getting. The staff at check-in was friendly and efficient, the room was not only clean but spacious and I would definitely stay here again in another trip. We did not partake of the morning breakfast because of our schedule, but in looking at it, I would say it is similar to other hotels in this category.

We stopped in Caryville on the way home from Florida. The room and beds were comfortable. Holiday Inn in general needs to improve their breakfast. Bagged eggs and tough bagels and sausage are not delicious! The breakfast attendant was very nice. The selection of teas were varied. It was a comfortable stay, I wish breakfast were better.

Traveling home from South Carolina, we decided after 10:00 pm to stop. Based on location and the reviews, decided to try this hotel. Pleasantly surprised it still had a 2 queen bed room available-parking lot was packed. Check in was easy; the man working at the front desk was polite & helpful. Hotel lobby and breakfast area are very nice-new, modern, clean. Then we got to our room-wow. It was HUGE, spotless, and so comfortable. I am a picky traveler and am bothered by stained carpet, peeling wallpaper, etc.-NONE of that here. Seriously one of the nicest, cleanest hotel rooms I've stayed in. Beds were comfortable, bedding was soft and clean. We really didn't want to stop but we were glad we ended up here. I've saved this hotel as a favorite and it will be our go-to next time we're passing through. The only reason for a 4 instead of a 5-breakfast was a bit chaotic-out of cinnamon rolls, coffee, biscuits, and not enough seating. Seems to be a theme with Holiday Inn breakfasts. Otherwise a great hotel!!!

What a pleasant surprise to find this gem off the beaten path! The room is very clean and spacious, really nice bathroom, and a full breakfast included too! So glad that we found this place and will gladly stay here again!

This is a great property and nice place to stay. The front staff was very polite and very helpful when we checked in. I had no concerns about safety or security leaving my vehicle parked where it was out back. The room was clean and neat and the bathroom was too. I have nothing but good things to say about this hotel. I would not hesitate to stay here again.

Very nice and clean. After driving thru horrendous rain and fog, seeing this location was a welcome relief as an option to stay. Front desk staff was very hospitable, room was very clean, and breakfast was adequate. We will use this place again if in the area.

Nice! Brand new and so cozy.and again, new smell!! Oh my!! I love it! Surprisingly luxurious for a holiday inn! Workout room is very nice.desk clerk super friendly! Highly recommend this hotel if you stay here in caryville:)

On our return journey from Florida to Indiana, we ran into quite a bit of traffic as we entered Georgia . Long story short - 9:30 pm found us weary and and searching for a place to lay our heads. The problem was - everything was full!!! I began calling the various hotel chains central hubs - who graciously searched for hotel rooms in the location we had given them. The customer service at Holiday Inn alerted ( and ultimately reserved ) a room at the Holiday Inn in Caryville Tennessee- a town that was within ten miles of our then present location. Although we were elated to find a room , I was secretly disappointed that it had not been with a different hotel chain , such as a Marriot or Hilton . I had stayed at a Holiday Inn years ago and although it was clean, the mattresses felt cheap and hard .... not comfortable at all! That being said , the Holiday Inn in Caryville was clean, modern , with spacious suites The staff was friendly, and helpful. They also served a very nice free hot breakfast and MOST importantly-- they had cushy, comfortable beds!!! We happily sank into the (pillow topped? ) lush mattress and received a great nights sleep! I find myself rethinking my previous opinions in regards to the Holiday Inn chain --- We are very likely to stay in one again, and if they are all like this one , it will become our new " go to " chain!
