Not bad
October 13, 2019

Not a bad place to stay in par with all the other in the area. If you pay by debit card or cash be prepared to pay a 100.00 security deposit. Evidently man checking in before us didn’t know this and was not happy. Rooms clean and beds comfortable.plenty of resturants close by

Great overnight stop
July 10, 2019

This is a great overnight stop when traveling through Knoxville with a dog. Price is competitive and Pets stay free. Rooms are clean, staff is friendly. Hot breakfast is more than adequate. Access off I 75 is easy.

My daughter was helping carry my stuff in and they called the police on us . They said if you stay here your nothing allowed to have any visitors at all. The bathroom wasn’t clean there was dirty feet prints and hair everywhere . The blankets had cigarette holes in Them too .

My new favorite place to stay in Knoxville! Very clean, bright, easy to find and less expensive. The breakfast was great and the people wonderful. Will stay there again. Not far off I40 so an easy trip back to Knoxville.

Little rough
March 30, 2019

We stayed here for one night on our way home from Myrtle Beach. Upon entrance of the room it looked okay, but closer inspection showed that there were stains on the comforter, the blanket had a weird smell and the bathroom had hair all over it. At check in I was handed a towel because they had been out so there weren't any in the room. There also was no toilet paper in our room. The only good thing was at check in, Richard was killing it. He seemed to be the only employee there and didn't seem stressed out with the line of people or anything. Still gave great customer service. He's the reason I have 2 stars. Next time we'll try somewhere else.
