Mold, Mildew, and bugs
October 01, 2018

We stayed here out of pure exhaustion and the inability to drive anymore that night. I've stayed at Red Roof Inn before and its true, you get what you pay for.... well, we payed 60 bucks to wake up with bite marks all over our legs. The bathroom was covered in mold under the sink, and dead roaches (which I guess are better than live roaches) we all over the hallways. Even for just a place to sleep and leave immediately the next morning it was pretty terrible.

Last-Minute Weekend Recovery
September 23, 2018

Let me begin by explaining the title - Alternative accommodations had already been made for the weekend (UT vs. UF) and when we arrived it was a total joke. An ugly review for the other property has since been made. Arriving here on a sold out weekend, we made many stops trying to find any place to stay just to recover some hope of a fun weekend. The friendliest front desk we met was here at the Red Roof, Ms. Tish Terry to be specific, and she made sure we were well taken care of. For some lucky reason, a single room was reserved for an emergency and after explaining how dire this was, she immediately determined we were qualified. Now this was also an expensive weekend to be looking for a last minute stay, she also made sure to get us the best rate possible. She even went as far as to give us a key to preview the room beforehand, just to make sure we were going to be satisfied before we agreed on staying. The room was clean, quiet, and 10 times better than anything we could’ve expected on such late notice. My fiancée and I offer our sincere gratitude for the Red Roof for saving our doomed weekend, and especially to Ms. Tish for going above and beyond.

Cheap Stay, but Misses the Mark
September 02, 2018

We stayed 5 days (check out was 9/2). We were there for the Wing Ding event in Knoxville. There were 4 of us in the room and they never put enough towels in the room, so daily we had to stop by the desk on our way in and ask for more. They also never changed the linen on the bed the entire time we were there. They also have old stained blankets and covers on the beds. The room never got completely cool, but it was better than the hallways. The hallways had no a/c or heat them at all. They have units at the end of each hallway trying to cool the entire floor and they just don't make the grade. The tv, the fridge and the microwave was good. The breakfast was edible. Although the apple juice is very watered down and tastes like slightly flavored water. However , the rest was good. They put laminate in the rooms and whomever laid it did a bad job. It is cracking already. The bathrooms were good, but need more soap in them and not just one bar to be used for the tub and sink. No where to put them on the sink. Would be come back? I think we would, as the beds are not as soft as the Comfort Inn, but not as bad as some. The rooms are reasonably priced. The front desk personnel are really nice and easy to talk to. The keys to the rooms (cards) had to be rekeyed daily. They continually didn't work. We did not use the pool as it looks green , as if algae was in the bottom of the pool.

Average Property
August 10, 2018

Good location for exploring Knoxville. Plumbing leaks. Beds are comfortable. Interior corridors with elevator. Continental breakfast was good. Staff was very courteous and helpful. The motel allows large dogs.

Never Again
August 04, 2018

I saw a good deal on this location and we booked through a third party without issues. upon arrival: drama between sketchy guests and receptionist. First room bathroom had black mold. There had been an obvious leak where a terrible patch job covered it on the ceiling, then developed mold. We mentioned at the front desk and were immediately given a different room. There was some black mold in this second room's bathroom as well. Definitely flooded on the first floor because the vanity had water damage on the legs. The non functioning vent looked disgusting. A/C did nothing for humidity. We're from a humid state but this was awful! It had a mildew smell as what happens when wet rags are left out or you forgot the load of laundry in the washer after 6 hours. We were exhausted after driving all day and dealt with it for the night. Slept terribly bc the mattress was such poor quality-the floor would have been better but I wasn't going to sleep there based on what we saw so far. I never use the comforter bc I hear they aren't washed regularly. Ours should have just been replaced as it had very visible holes from a cigarette-mind you they claim to be a non-smoking facility. We checked out early the next day and went elsewhere. You get what you pay for but no one should have to deal with black mold no matter what they pay.
