2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

This was the LOUDEST hotel I’ve ever stayed at. The hotel has multiple postings regarding its “quiet hours” and the three strike policy regarding noise complaints. It’s the not the guests who are loud. At roughly 5am every day, the staff begins loudly preparing dinner and shouting across the lobby to each other to engage in small talk. Spoiler alert: They don’t like the new guy. The staff needs to understand that people pay to rest at hotels. Their job is not a social club with spaces for overnight guests.

Staff was great and the room was comfortable. Shower tile had a long crack that should be fixed. Bed was comfortable, but pillows were too hard. But overall it was a very nice stay.

Great hotel but the staff could use some work. This was a one night stay and I must say, it was pleasant overall. When I checked in the staff was pleasant. However, while I was parking the car, my wife and her mother were struggling with the luggage cart and the staff was laughing at them. These were two men and, in my opinion, should've helped the ladies since I wasn't there. The breakfast was good but like most other places. You'll find your eggs and cereal and oatmeal, y'know, the usual. It's conveniently located just off of the main road so getting on and off for your travels is a breeze. The only discouraging thing for us is that there's a few chairs and some ashtrays right by the front door so, if people are out there, you're going to smell it and breathe it in coming and going. Overall though, I would stay here again for a night. However, if it were longer than that, I may check other options.

Nice and clean. Pets allowed with no extra charge. Staff were all professional and friendly. Free breakfast was awesome. Excellent value.

They made an attempt to renovate, but their contractors have done a terrible job. The grout and caulking is all over the tile, and there are many spaces without grout at all. The other areas of the room that have not been updated are very old and dirty. The lobby area has a mezzanine level that travels throughout very loudly. The first room I was in smelled just terrible. Luckily, I was moved to a room that did not smell bad. Rough hotel... would not recommend.

It was just a one night stay. It was close to the places we planned to visit and the places we planned on eating. Hotel staff was friendly and courteous and made sure my stay was a great one. If I am in the area again will book this hotel again.

After leaving a very sub-par hotel in Atlanta, La Quinta was a breath of fresh air...Literally. Enforced no-smoking policy, clean, comfortable, nicely decorated, and welcoming staff.

I have no complaints with this hotel. Clean rooms, friendly staff. Can't ask for more than that.

I was injured so had to extend my stay so was not overcharged for my extra length of stay

A quick in & out stay. Really an nice CLEAN, comfortable stay. Breakfast was better than most hotels, and free!

In town for a day. Great place very clean and comfortable. Staff friendly and efficient. Full breakfast if you want. Was really good. I would stay here again

Clean bathroom. Comfortable bed. Arms of chair were sticky. But it was a overall good experience.

The hotel is clean and newly renovated. The breakfast bar had an excellent variety including make-your-own waffles and a changing array of hot breakfast items. We were not able to visit the pool as it is seasonal; an important note that we missed when looking at it online. The staff is friendly and available 24 hrs a day. There appeared to be free cookies and coffee available at all hours as well but we did not take advantage of that. Our bathroom door didn't close properly but the rest of our stay was very nice and well worth the price.

This is one of the nicest La Quinta's I have stayed at! It is very modern and clean. The breakfast had a lot of options. The location is a 5 min drive to downtown. Great value for what you get.

The facility was fine. One washer and one dryer doesn't seem to fit the description of laundry facilitiescon premises. Everything else was fine.

Had to make a last minute trip down to TN for 3 days. The hotel was easy access on and off the highway. It was clean and the room was very nice. The continental breakfast had everything you could want and more it was perfect. The staff were friendly and the maid service was perfect. Would stay again!

Overall nice hotel, def worth the $. Nice location, not too far from Knoxville.

The Hotel and staff were excellent. Breakfast was great and the city was close by. The bed was perfect!

Great room, very clean. Our room was huge. Very comfortable. Great hot shower.

It is an ok motel. Maid service is poor. The fire department was there from 12 to 1 AM on Sunday morning because of an alarm issue. The alarms were on and off during that time. Impossible to sleep with the nosie.
