Needed a place on the way home, and it worked for the night. Room was relatively clean, and it was less than staying in one of the tourist trap places near Gatlinburg. Room was clean, and the Hotel staff were friendly. Breakfast wasn't bad either.

As a Choice Privileges member, I have been pretty disappointed in the choice hotels that I've stayed at recently. Their website makes it sound like such a great place, but you are sadly disappointed when you arrive. So, when I booked this hotel with reward points, I wasn't expecting much. However, I was pleasantly surprised to find a nice clean...

We took a chance on this hotel, because all surrounding 3 star hotels were priced outrageously high. This hotel was very clean, lobby was well-appointed, pool area and pool were clean and tidily arranged. The room was a bit more basic than I prefer, but certainly very suitable for 1 night. It was very clean and the bathroom was spotless....

Great price, easy location. Should not be a Clarion level hotel for Choice brands. More along the lines of a Quality Inn. No microwave/fridge in room. No blackout curtains. Only sheer curtains that allowed all light in. WiFi did not work AT ALL Room was clean and staff was courteous and hospitable.

There are a lot of hotels in this area and I'm glad I chose this one. The room was clean and the furnishings are in good condition. The staff was courteous and despite the help wanted sign I saw no indication that they were understaffed. I didn't have time to go to the pool but it drew a large crowd....

The room was clean and the beds were comfortable. The morning breakfast was good. I do think the couch in the lobby needed attention and the arms were dirty and in need of cleaning. The chair rail was chipped and in need of painting. The computer system was out because of a storm and I was told that I couldn't...

We stayed two nights as part of a campus visit for my daughter who is considering UT. Rate was very reasonable, and room was as expected for the price. Location was convenient to the university. Only complaints we had are that the beds are small, and if you stay on the side closest to the highway, the noise is very...

The room was surface cleaned but could use a deep cleaning including walls,doors, furniture and bathroom caulking. Recliner chair had broken back. Room quite small. Common areas in need of cleaning, polishing and maintenance. Noise from interstate was excessive as other reviewers have mentioned. Breakfast was satisfactory and plentiful although no one cleaned up tables and guests were left to...

Standards are personalized and some things that bother me are totally acceptable for others. That said here were the things that bothered me: moldy/stale smell in the room, scratchy blankets, small uncomfortable beds, stained/dirty furniture-everywhere, unkept pool area with the smallest towels, balcony door wouldn't open. I could go on but then I would sound hotel snobby😬. I did think...

Room was clean and spacious. The bed was very comfortable. Wifi was spotty at times, but a big storm was passing through that could have affected it. The breakfast was as expected for a Choice Hotel brand, plentiful and fresh.
