Recent guest reviews

This hotel was ok for one night, but the room was WAY smaller than I expected. It reminded me of a european hotel room in a large city. You walked in and there was a tiny bathroom on your left, then a queen size bed, with too tiny nightstands built into the wall and a tiny window seat. No closet, desk or anything else you typically see in American hotels/motels. There were also only 2 pillows on the bed and no extra in the room. I would probably not stay here again if I was in town in the future, but again, for one night it was ok.

Man at desk tried twice to give me a key to the room that worked. Later tells me that anytime I need to get back in the room that he didn't care to walk me to my room and let me in because he couldn't figure out how to get a key program for the room.. tub and toilet both dirty and the bed was hard as a rock. Free breakfast was actually pretty good but that was the only bright spot

Upon arrival to check-in the lady at the desk was on her cell phone. It took her more than 2 minutes to acknowledge that I was even there. When I got in the room I made sure the sheets and mattress was clean, but had plans and quickly left. When I returned, I realized that there was no shower curtain. I went to the front desk, and the gentleman that was there was very accommodating and moved me to another room. The shower curtain rod was coming off of the wall in that room, so he moved me to a 3rd room. Later that night I was leaving the hotel and a lady drove in and stopped me asking if a black man was working the front desk. When I said yes, she proceeded to tell me that was her husband. I didn’t care, but she seemed to be stalking the hotel and asking women about her husband. Very creepy!

Hotel staff stood in the way of the door and just looked at us while we had our arms full of luggage, so we had to walk around them in the grass to get in. Front desk never smiled, or ever made eye contact while checking in/out or passing. Sheets had stains, but towels seemed clean. Shower rod was broken and wouldn’t keep the curtain closed because of that, toilet wasn’t fixed to the floor properly, there was no safety latch on the door in our room and when we asked if that was standard, they said yes, but every single room we passed with the door open had one. There was also a giant mirror over the bed (that we saw in other rooms as well though) but ours had a dark 2 way mirror film, it connected with a service room on the other side. That connected with no safety latch made me feel so uncomfortable. It also stank of mildew in the halls, and when you’d get off the elevator on the 2nd floor, I felt like I was on a moving cruise ship, so weird. It’s NOT worth if for the cheap price. Breakfast was fine, but nothing to brag about either.

This is the second Microtel I've stayed in. Both experiences the same. Buildings were both old, and in need of repair. Rooms - beds comfy and rooms clean enough, though I'm not super picky. Staff helpful and overall felt safe. For the money, not bad and when on a budget i'd stay again. No frills but rather a decent, safe place to lay your head for the night.

The room next to me was so loud. They were fighting all night. Could not sleep

I checked in, stayed in the room just long enough to book another room near-by. It was awful! Smoke detector had been removed. Large hole in bathroom where light had been removed. Filthy, dirty and not enough room to move around. I'm glad there was another hotel available near by, or I would have slept in my car. I cut my losses (the cost of the room) and got out of there asap.

The breakfast is simple but adequate, for a longer stay it gets boring Staff is not the sharpest. Small issues can become big troubles

I have stayed in this hotel on many occasions for purposes of conducting business in the Knoxville area. It is centrally located and extremely convenient and the staff is always nice. My room is always clean and my experience has always been excellent.

Functional spartan room great for a good night's rest.

Our room was very small and had nothing on the walls except some writing by a couple. The bathroom light was like a strobe light. All other features were average at best. I don't expect a lot at this price point but this was pitiful. Hope they forgot to tell us this room was up for renovations the next week- being optimistic

Very efficient room. Good area for working on business and computer. Easy access and good breakfast.

I reserved a queen room the pictures of the room were nice and large looking like an average queen room. When we arrived hard to talk to staff at check in, then we get to our room and the bed was no way a queen and it barely fit into the room. there are no do not disturb placards so I placed bag on bed not wanting bed touched they moved all of my things rearrange my belongings in my bag even. Good news didn't see any bugs must have been the horrible musty smell through the hotel that kept them away, we had to buy air freshener.

Check-in easy and room was clean and comfortable. Air conditioner had to be ran on high...but, room was cool with that setting. I will stay in this hotel again.

We were there for a funeral and just needed a place to sleep, bath and dress. Room was micro small but met our need. Appeared to be very clean and came with a buffet breakfast that I thought was very good.

I really like the staff at Microtel. I have stayed there twice a year for about 8 years because my dad is late stages alzheimers and living in a veterans home in Knoxville. Everytime I show up, I know the people who work there and they are very pleasant. I wish the room had a little more extras, but overall I enjoy my visit with the staff at Microtel every year.

Tiniest hotel room we've ever stayed in! Whole floor smelled of being previous smoking rooms though appeared to be new carpet on the floors. Could not enter any outside doors with our room key except front door. Challenging since there was very little parking at or near front door. Room key set to expire after one night though we were booked for two nights. Staff courteous.

Good place to stay in the area. Lots of local restaurants.

I had reserved for a day before by mistake and the owner took care of it very nicely. Really happy.

Awesome for weekend getaway. No hassle and safe. Staff are great.
