We usually overnight in Newport when driving back from Myrtle Beach. It's a nice break on our way home to KY. This Holiday Inn is wonderful. Very clean. Breakfast is just what you need to get on the road.

very good looking hotel, looks brand new even though it's a few years old - they take a good care of it, the staff is okay, the room was clean, the price was average for HI, breakfast excellent...I have no complaints. I recommend it to all the visitors or travelers who pass through east TN.

After a LONG day of driving this place was exactly what we needed! Very clean, comfortable, spacious and friendly staff. Excellent free breakfast. Great location right off the highway. We would definitely stay here again if we were in the area.

I stayed in Newport, because it was getting late on a business road trip and it seemed like a convenient place to stop rather than going through the mountains late at night. The hotel was pretty good, but Newport was unimpressive. The town as a whole just seemed backward and dirty. If you're not driving a lifted dually tuck with...

This was a nice place to stay as we passed through Tennessee. The room was comfortable and clean. The air conditioning worked great. The breakfast in the morning was good and the hostess was friendly. Nice hotel.

When we first walked into the the hotel, we had booked a double twin suite 3 weeks ahead. When the man at the front desk gave us the key we went up to our room. As we entered we noticed that this was not at all what we had reserved, yet it smelled very funny as well. Then we take...

Nice hotel with a very comfortable bed and pillows. Very quite rooms. Breakfast was free but nothing special. Hotel staff were very helpful and pleasant. Could have used a bright light over the top of the desk, though; very hard to see what you were writing.

The HI Express is located right in the middle of southern Appalachia, minutes from Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge, and seconds off Interstate 40 at exit 435 (easy on and off). We were headed to Asheville, NC on vacation. Toyed with driving all the way to Asheville (~75 minute further SE), but the hotels their were at least $60-100/night more expensive....

Comfy, clean rooms & friendly staff, we were able to make reservations online (while the husband drove) using our HI points, about 30 minutes before checking in. Standard Holiday Inn Express breakfast, free wi-fi, fairly quiet. Didn't get a chance to use the pool. No problems & would definitely stay here again.

My friend and I stopped here on our way to Asheville. The hotel was clean and cool. We also had a nice note from the women who cleaned our room for us to let her know if we need anything. We really enjoyed our stay. I would highly recommend staying here, if you stop in Newport.
