Nice Place, Not Sure It Rates A Third Star
January 13, 2018

Just looking for an overnight stay, but this was a nice property. Bright lobby and hallways, room was clean and comfortable. Wood floors were a nice touch. Clerk was friendly and helpful. Advertised a business center, but the “fitness center” was just a room with a treadmill and cycle. Room probably would offer a comfortable workspace. Convenient location off I-40.

Location convenience
January 12, 2018

We booked this hotel due the location. We travel to Knoxville from Florida to go to the cancer center. This location is about 5-10 minutes away depending on traffic. There are several locations near by to shop and eat. It’s right of the interstate but the location of the hotel it is very quiet. They are in the process of remodeling and updating but it is very clean and the staff has been very friendly. My husband will be starting chemo in the next few weeks and we would stay here again. It’s also priced very reasonable for the location.

OK, but needs some help
January 05, 2018

Red Roof Inns are known for being good value -- reasonable service at a good price. And accordingly, amenities are sparse. This particular Red Roof Inn is OK. Some renovations are currently in progress, but they seem to be public areas, rather than rooms. The room on the surface it is neat and clean. But on further inspection, it needs help. The bath on the surface is clean, but needs a good scrubbing or an update (broken tiles, missing tub plug, really dirty grout, etc.) We repaired a malfunctioning coffee maker. Towels are on the smaller size and rough and are supplied for two (when the room is designed for four). Amenities are bare bones (shampoo for one and soap but no lotion or conditioner). Noise from the hallway is manageable. On the positive side, Check in was good and staff was friendly, efficient, helpful. The beds are firm and good. You can make coffee in the room. You get a microwave and mini frig, free wifi and free breakfast. But the frig needs de-icing and the breakfast room needs better staffing. When the gravy was resupplied it was barely warm. And the coffee cups were stacked higher than a six foot person! Guess that was so it didn't need to be resupplied often, but certainly made it difficult for a 5 foot person to get a cup! Yes, this is a return stay and will return again. But keep your expectations realistic.

Worth the Stay
January 01, 2018

I kept meaning to take pictures of the room, and that’s honestly my biggest regret. The room was very tidy, and I was way impressed with the wooden floors and layout of the room. It looked just like the online photos! We stayed for three nights/four days, and each day was great. I was a little wary based on the price, but since we were in town for family and not a hotel, I booked anyway. The best was very comfortable, the breakfast was hot and fresh, and the guy working the night shift at the front desk was so charismatic and fun, I wish I’d grabbed his name. The hotel is conveniently located, offers smoke-free rooms, breakfast, and free wi-fi. I’d be open to staying again next time we’re in the area of the rates stay low and the quality stays superb. (Total disclaimer: there is hardly anyone at the desk in the morning, so I couldn’t ever tell anyone to ask housekeeping to clean our mini fridge as it had someone’s previously left stinky leftovers in it. Luckily, we had brought a cooler with us, so we didn’t sweat it, but just a heads up the night crew at the front desk is where it’s at.)

I love coming here to this hotel. Megan always checks me in. She is amazing. The hotel is always clean and the staff is always friendly. I recommend this hotel to everyone going through knoxville. ........................................................................................................................
