Just what we were looking for
June 22, 2018

A step up from our usual crappy, curry-smelling Choice hotels. Just looking for a cheap,clean room for over night after judging the BK wing festival. Still needs some updating but overall,just what we were looking for.

Half way mark
June 20, 2018

So I took a shower and the the tub shell doesn’t match the flooring and has built up water under the floor. It is about a 2-3 inch wave. Talk about off balance. These prices back when I was booking were top dollar hotels, now one pays a lot of money for me to get low rate rooms. I would say in the day this would have been a 38 dollar room.

You get what you pay for. Clean room, comfortable bed

I don't usually stay in Red Roof hotels, But we were on a very tight budget for a trip to Destination Imagination Global finals at UTK. The price was very good, better than most places in the area, the room was clean, but a few things were worn out or broken. We stayed in room 202, I will preface this by saying we did not tell the staff about the problems, as with the event going on nearby the place was booked, and we did not want to change rooms, and probably could not. The toilet seat was so loose, that you had to sit very carefully as to not get knocked off or into the toilet. This is something cleaning staff must be aware of when they clean the room, and therefore me telling staff wasn't necessary, they should already know about it. The door handle to the bathroom was also loose, and almost falling off, we just avoided closing the door completely just in case. The room otherwise was as expected for the price I paid. Clean, no frills, 2 very comfortable double beds, which is a little to cozy for me and my husband so we each took a bed to ourselves. To be honest the bed was so comfortable I woke up thinking I was at home. The A/C heat worked, as did all the outlets, and USB ports, there are quite a few, and many near or around the bed, which is very helpful as my husband has a CPAP machine and needs electricity near the bed. The breakfast is nothing special, but the coffee was actually quite good. We were there on a very busy week, and some things were always out, and not refilled, we did however go down to breakfast at about 9:30, so we weren't expecting much. The hotel is very easy to navigate from the highway, and to and from the University. The staff was always polite, friendly and helpful.

Amazing Breakfast
June 01, 2018

He made our waffle. Carried our plates. Brought us orange juice. But it wasnt only us. He was doing it for everyone. Corry really was the shining star💔 The Front desk was also nice but we truly plan to tell every single person that is a great hotel. Thank you for a great stay. Corry we will see you in 3 weeks. Youre awesome kid.

What a surprise in a budget hotel
May 09, 2018

We stayed one night while traveling from here to there. Selected the hotel because it was right off the interstate---one of the best sight unseen decisions I've ever made. The room was very clean (and I am picky) and the bed surprisingly comfortable. Front desk was very helpful. I had waffles for breakfast and they were yummy. The guy working the breakfast room wouldn't even let me carry my own plate. I would definitely stay again.
