Travelodge Knoxville West

2.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

I've travelled often in life and this is by far the nastiest, scariest, and foulest hotel I've ever set foot inside. The rooms look like every scene out of a crime thriller where the bad guy holes up for the night or holds someone hostage (or worse). The parking lot is dimly lit, the rooms smell like a swamp, and the whole vibe just makes you uncomfortable. We booked this place because the pictures seemed fine and the location is excellent. For an additional $30-50 per night, even on a game weekend, you should stay just about anywhere else in Knoxville. We left the hotel and booked elsewhere the night we arrived.

Bathroom needs new grout, but a good price. I would stay there again, wish they had ice machines located throughout instead of only the lobby.

We were in town for a UT football game and it was just what we needed (a place to crash). Not the nicest room but it got the job done and the price was one of the cheapest in town for that weekend.

There was a lot of Interstate Road Noise from passing traffic and the A/C system wasn't loud enough to drown out the noise. Other than that was a great place to stay for the money.

All I needed for my two night stay was a bed, a hot shower, and wireless internet. This location provided all quite nicely. It is only about 5-10 minutes from downtown Knoxville (depending on time of day), and the staff were quite friendly and helpful. The more demanding occupant might find fault with the cleanliness of the room, but I had no real problems. A word of advice: don't change the air conditioning's setting since it tends to be noisy when it turns on every so often.

The hotel advertised a fitness center, but there was none.

We traveled to Knoxville for UT's Homecoming weekend. The hotel was pretty run-down and our room (a non smoking room) smelled like old cigarettes and take out food. We immediately went to the store for air freshener to make the smell more bearable. However, the continental breakfast offered a good selection of cereals, muffins, English muffins, toast, and donuts. The location was convenient, and for the price it is what you would expect.

Did not sleep at all because of the noise of the traffic. Shower would switch from warm to cold to scalding. I'm glad I did not travel with kids because the water would suddenly go so hot they would have been burned. I showered at my Dad's to keep from getting burned.

This hotel is located close to the University of Tennessee Campus which is what I was looking for. It was also very easy to get to. I was in town to attend UT's Orientation with my daughter. I had actually stayed at this same hotel 3 years earlier when I attended orientation with my son. The room was spacious and clean. Great value for the price.

Clean, large room. Good place for the price.

Arrived after 700 miles of driving. Found accomidations great and had a good night's sleep. We still had 300 miles to go to get home. Thank you!

Was just stopping in to break up a long trip from SC to MO. It was very convenient, right off the highway. We got a good deal on the room. Not related to the hotel, per se, but if you are not from Eastern TN, I would def recommend channel 10 news for unintentional hilarity. :)

The 3 police cars parked outside my door was the first deterent waking me from my sleep. Seeing the police search the neighbors vehicle and escorting the female away in handcuffs much later was also most impressive and left me feeling secure. Then noticing the non airtight seal on the front door with the 20 degree air blowing right in and hearing the car doors opening and shutting. well that was not the restful sleep I was expecting. Then for the continental breakfast, those were the best quarter size muffins I have had in a long time.

it was adequate, large room fairly clean

I was in Knoxville for a 2 day "School of the Supernatural" @ Abiding Glory Ministries. It was awesome! The Glory of God filled the atmosphere at the Church. I will definitely be going back there!

My husband and I went for the UT game and wanted something fairly close to campus without paying an arm and a leg for it. This was the plus side of staying here. The downside being that it was pretty noisy (being right next to the interstate) and the bed was super UNcomfortable. You can feel the coils going into your back when you lay down...we're still pretty sore from sleeping on the bed there.

Didn't know this was on the highway when we booked it but it wasn't noisy. We were there to visit University of TN and only 10 min. from campus. Restaurants nearby. You have to drive to everything.

what did I do? Stayed locked in my room until I left at 4:00 in the morning. Something missing? Quiet Compared to other trips? The noisiest place I've ever stayed. Between the partying and what sounded like construction work going on, I would have been better off joining the party

We were in town for one night. The room was clean but dated. Beds were ok but pillows were awful. Bathroom could have been cleaner. Room was nice size. Lots of restaurants in the area for lunch and dinner but had trouble finding a good breakfast.

The Super 8 Motel was pretty clean. The staff was very nice and never got out of the way with us. The rooms were nice, and even the smoking room we got did not smell like a cigarette. We ended up having to stay a day longer than we had originally planned, and they booked us another night with no problem. We checked out 30 minutes later than we were supposed to and they did charge us anything extra! This motel was very nice and I would definitely stay there again!!
