Great experience
October 20, 2019

Room was clean and bed was comfortable. Staff was outstanding - friendly and helpful. Air conditioner was kind of loud, but at least it was a steady noise. Just wish the smokers didn't congregate near the front door. Was unpleasant.

Good value if just passing through
September 20, 2019

Knoxville is the mid-point on a 9-hour drive that we make several times a year, and we usually stay here. The hotel is a bit tired and dated, but it's dependable. Our second-floor room had great water pressure in the shower. If we were spending a week in Knoxville, we'd probably look for a bit nicer place, but it's a good value with nearby restaurants if you're just passing through. Mini-fridge in the room, and pets are allowed, I'd you travel with one. No hair dryer in the room, but you can ask for one at the front desk.

An excellent deal very centrally located

Ive stayed at the Knoxville East Red Roof Inn for the last month while house hunting in the area. I've found it to be extremely clean and comfortable. (The hardwood style flooring throughout the room is quite nice.) The front desk staff is very friendly and helpful. It is centrally located, quiet and somewhat rural, but close to Sevierville, as well as to the rest of Knoxville. It is safe, with plenty of parking. The pool is popular - especially with families. Shopping and events are close by.

(Almost) really good
August 13, 2019

I always try to grade based upon price range. I was all ready to give this motel 4 stars for the price. It seems to have been renovated within the last several years. Hard floors (i.e. no carpet) is good because the rooms smell fresh and feel pretty clean. AC works well. I don't need much else from a low budget motel. The only reason I might not have given 5 stars is because the fixtures in our room were a little cheap and slightly rickety, and the breakfast was 4 stars not 5. Again, not a problem for a budget hotel, but to get stars, it needs a little tightening up. I'd still very much recommend the motel. Now - to the reason I gave 3 starts and not 4.... I was sharing the room with a woman, which meant that I was sure to lift the toilet seat. I lifted the seat of the otherwise clean looking toilet only to find that nobody had cleaned the underside of the seat - and it was nasty. The seat was also kind of loose (which they would have discovered it they would have lifted it to clean it). So, my message to the management is that if you pay just a little more attention to a few details, you will really have a winner motel at this price point. So, book the hotel - it's good for the price point (I'd stay there again). Hopefully, management will have tightened up just a bit by the time you get there.

It’s clean but...
August 10, 2019

Nice place and at a great price. We stayed in a King suite. Bed and pillows were comfy, floor was clean, shower and bathroom was clean but.... OMG the HVAC is SOOO LOUD! Pushed room temp up to 72 in hopes that it wouldn’t kick on so much- didn’t work. That thing revved it’s motor all night long. It is the loudest things I’ve ever heard. If that wasn’t waking me up then the fact that it looked like day light all night long didn’t help. Stayed in room 214. I’m guessing it was the parking lot lights??? It shown around the curtain of the wall length window all night. It was never dark in our room. So when the AC did wake me up my eyes thought the sun was up too. It was a long long long night. Should we of requested a room in the back? Surely we aren’t the first ppl to complain about the constant light and the helicopter AC. OH AND NO HAIR DRYER- it’s a suite with no hair dryer. Glad it was only one night.
