Recent guest reviews

The staff was very pleasant. The hotel is nice, clean and in good condition. The main road side get a little road noise so staying on the back side is recommended for a light sleeper. They had a hot breakfast which was pretty typical eggs, sausage and waffles but good. We would stay here again.

We were traveling to home in Kentucky after vacation and did not have reservations. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and quick to locate us a room with a King bed and in minutes we were settling in for the night. Our room was on the top floor facing the street. Street noise was not an issue. Our room was very clean and the bed comfortable. The wifi signal was not very strong but we were tired and the bed was comfortable. Breakfast included hot items such as biscuits, gravy, sausage and eggs. There was a waffle maker and the standard cereals, pastries. Everything was fresh and tasty. All of the staff that we interacted with were courteous and helpful. I highly recommend this hotel.

What a great stay! The moment we walked in the door we were greeted with a friendly smile. Alan, I believe his name is, was very helpful and accommodating. The rooms are clean, the beds are comfy, and the breakfast in the morning is awesome. So many options!

I used Tripadvisor reviews to book this hotel and they were right on. You won't find a more comfortable, clean and friendly hotel. The moment my husband dropped me off at the front door I noticed that the doors sparkled. Not a fingerprint on all the glass doors. When we entered the lobby it was also spotless and we were greeted very warmly. We had a King room on the third floor and it also was just spotless and clean and very quiet. The bed and the pillows were so comfy after a 15 hr drive. It is very obvious that management takes great pride in this hotel. Search no further. We had such a pleasant stay.

We arrived at the Comfort Inn about 8:30 PM, during a torrential rainstorm, and with no reservation. We were tired, wet, anxious from driving in the storm, and just generally stressed out. Yvette at the desk was wonderful! We were able to get a double room with a mini fridge, which was exactly what we needed, at a reasonable rate. The hotel was very clean and attractive. Our spotless room was well appointed, with everything that we could have needed. The bed and pillows were very comfortable, and we were able to get a much needed, good night's sleep. We were extremely pleased and will stay again if we have another need anywhere near the Knoxville area.

Very helpful, non-intrusive staff. Our room was spacious, clean and quiet. We found everything we needed for the 3-night stay within walking distance or in the hotel. The bedding here is wonderful, and we got some of the best sleep in months!

Where do I begin??!! My husband and I literally LIVED in this hotel for 9 MONTHS, following a fire that destroyed our home. The first few weeks following the fire were very stressful. But, the owner of this hotel, Shashi Patel, was kind, calming and encouraging; which really helped us to better cope with the situation. I can’t begin to tell you the many, many ways in which he accommodated our needs. From the first day here, we felt like we were staying with friends. The entire staff of the hotel was concerned for our wellbeing, sympathetic to our situation, and respectful of our privacy. They all paid attention to our erratic schedules and went out of their way to clean our room while we were out. One morning, I encountered our usual housekeeper in the hallway. She said, “don’t you have a conference call in a few minutes?” I laughed out loud. I had totally forgotten about the call. You know you’ve been in a hotel too long when the housekeeper knows your schedule better than you do! During the preparation of our new home, I can’t tell you how much mud we tracked into the hotel. We had to come straight from the construction site back to our room to clean up. The hotel was our home, our office, our construction planning hub and our mud room. Never, did anyone say a word about all the mess we brought into the hotel. The staff promptly cleaned up behind us, and did it with a smile. I’ve read lots of excellent reviews about the hotel. I concur that this place is absolutely outstanding! Should you have dropped in at a time when several people were trying to check in simultaneously, or immediately after we had tracked mud through the lobby, into the elevator and down the hallway, you might not get the best first impression. But, after living here for so long, I can say I’ve had a “first” impression, a second, a third……a 200th……. The owner and staff here define the word HOSPITALITY! The hotel owner genuinely cares about his hotel, his guests and his staff. I’ve witnessed so many acts of kindness during my stay here that I can’t begin to count them all. When we moved into the hotel, it felt like we were staying with “FRIENDS.” We finally moved out of the hotel, just a few days ago. Although we are ecstatic about getting into our new place, it feels like we left “FAMILY” behind! We LOVE these people!!! We will always remember their kindness and will remain eternally grateful. They were truly a blessing to us in a very difficult time. ****Travelers**** This hotel is only 30 minutes from Knoxville. It’s well worth the drive!

Stayed at the comfort inn in Harriman tn in August of this year,booked on hotwire.friendly receptionist, clean room no complaints,great fresh breakfast with good choice, hot coffee in reception, I would recommend this hotel

The owner and manager of this hotel comes across as a man of personal integrity and high standards. His staff all seemed friendly and hard-working, making for a comfortable, family-like atmosphere. The decor struck me as extremely artistic, yet simple. I was relieved to learn that they do NOT accept pets. For the eclipse, we had a room at normal rates. Because of my carelessness in packing to go home, we ended up giving them greater than normal trouble. When I contacted them about a forgotten library book, they mailed it back immediately, along with a cane, which I had not yet missed! Next time we pass through Knoxville, this is where we will stay again!

Because of a cancellation we were lucky to get a room for the day of the eclipse. The hotel has modern décor and the art work is outstanding. Mr. Patel was very friendly and accommodated our special requests like early check in. We knew the hotel was full but we did not notice. Mr. Patel still found time for a chat. All the staff was very friendly, from the server in the breakfast room to the cleaning ladies. The pool offers a great view of the Tennessee landscape. The nearby Roane County Park is well worth a visit. It is free and offers a large swimming area in the river and a splash pad.
