    Nice stopping point

    The hotel was half way on our journey. Very convenient, clean, had a nice hot breakfast, no extra charge for our two dogs (who were on their best behavior). Only thing that surprised me was that the check in clerk told us she was afraid of dogs! She would not get on the elevator with us and the dogs when she was doing something else. We of course respect that, but were surprised in a “dog friendly” hotel.

    Convenient location

    Stayed here twice now as it's a halfway point on a long drive. The hotel is near the interstate and there are many good restaurants not too far away so for travelers, and our own needs, that worked out well. Staff especially on the second time were very helpful as well.

    Great location

    Room was a great size but could use some updating and a really good cleaning. It worked for us on the road for 1 night with our pup. FYI - There are a lot of children and dogs at this hotel and it’s the biggest La Quinta we’ve stayed at.

    Location was good for what I needed

    Everyone said great areas to walk dog. No, there wasn’t if you have a small dog because the grass areas way too high. All other areas said no dog zone. Not best place for my dog.

    Great location

    Easy off/on highway. Convenient paved walking trail. Treadmill didn’t work because it would not connect to Internet which the device required. Same with elliptical. No wi-go. Had to create a yahoo account to get the wi-fi which was included with room. Very noisy: slammed doors, knocking on walls, dogs barking.

    Just ok

    Stayed here with our two Goldens on long road trip. Positives include very friendly staff and no pet fee. Plenty of space for dog walking. Very reasonably priced. Negatives are all dog rooms are on ground floor and people and dogs coming in very late made it hard for our dogs to settle. Could hear dogs in hallway and other rooms. Rooms are very weathered and need a refresh.

    The room was dirty… we left after 10 minutes

    I would give negative bones if possible. The room was dirty… the hallway carpet was filthy. We left after entering the room and drove another 2 hours and checked into a clean and excellent property where the reviews accurately reflected the property. Extremely disappointed.

    Decent Stay, Definitely Dog Friendly

    We had to wait an hour beyond check-in time for our room to get ready. When traveling with dogs, that's not ideal. The room was decent enough- there were some stray hairs on the bed linens and the floors weren't clean (we spilled some water and when we wiped it up, the towel was nasty and brown) but it did the trick for one night. Plenty of dogs around and good potty spots. The breakfast was good!

  • R Lee

    Cozy and clean

    Excellent hotel for pets and people. Great walking path that begins almost at the door of the hotel. Near good restaurants (but not walking distance). Clean, roomy, perfect for me and my two big (75 lb) dogs. I will definitely stay here next time I pass through Knoxville.

    Traveling with a pet we realize our options are limited and we therefore don’t expect luxury, but we do expect clean. After traveling all day & night we just wanted a good nights rest - kind of hard to do when you find what appears to be smeared bloody nose/snot on comforter. Floors are vinyl - not an issue & expected for pet-friendly room, but again, expect them to be clean. Husband went to wipe up some water the dog dripped on floor only to come up with a filth, black towel. Luckily our pooch had his bed to sleep on as I wouldn’t want him on that floor. Hairs in the bathroom. Should have read the reviews on this place more carefully. Clearly there is a housekeeping problem here. Generally not one to leave negative reviews, but that bedding was gross!!

    Perfect Stay & Walking Trail

    Our stay was great! Pet-friendly rooms had vinyl flooring which was good for our Newfie since she prefers cool floor to sleep on. The only con with that, is it increases some of the noise from the hall. We kept the fan on all night and that worked for us. The pet-friendly rooms have obviously seen a few claws and paws, so none of the finishes were pristine, but everything was very clean. This hotel also has a fantastic walking trail out front just past the gazebo. It’s not well lit though, so if you go at night, bring a flashlight. The staff were also super friendly. We would definitely stay here again.

  • Sean

    The room was dirty and smelled absolutely awful. I can tolerate quite a bit when it comes to hotels but this place was truly, truly awful. There were rips in the bed sheets and I found human hairs all over the bed after I pulled back the comforter. Did you change the sheets at all in between stays or did you simply re-make the bed and call it a day? Have you ever cleaned the bathroom in. My room? There were no blackout curtains either and after a 12 hour drive, it would have been nice to have a totally dark room to sleep in. Usually, La Quintas are wonderful places to stay when traveling with my dog and this has been the lone exception. Very disappointed!

    Best dog policy

    It was so nice to have somewhere to stay that welcomes two dogs with no pet fee! Plenty of green space to walk the dogs. I’m a light sleeper and usually don’t sleep well in hotels, but the bed was comfortable and the room was quiet and I slept great. Only concern was sticky floor tiles in the foyer and bathroom. I had to keep the door closed so my pup couldn’t go in and lick the floors.

    Nice place to spend the night

    Lots of nice green lawn out from for doggie business. I didn’t see a bag dispenser but we should always bring our own, right? We heard some other dogs barking so we felt like we were in a nice down-to-earth place where people wouldn’t complain if Maggie talked a bit. Very nice!

    Just okay

    I know it’s a challenge for pet-friendly hotels to keep things clean and fresh, but this hotel could use some TLC. The pet area was basically a tiny park strip and there were tons of dogs staying there. The room smelled like urine and ammonia. Again, I know it’s tough, but having stayed at 3 other pet-friendly hotels along our journey, this was the least appealing. We slept fine, but any amount of “luxury” wasn’t part of the experience.

  • Debbie

    Great place for one night on our cross country road trip

    Convenient, right off the highway but far enough off we didn’t hear road noise. Room on the first floor for easy in and outs with the dogs. Nice room, clean and updated. Free hot breakfast before we hit the road again. And only about 10 minutes from downtown Knoxville so we were able to check out Market Square in the few hours we had available.

    Not clean at all

    Nice Warm Breakfast but left out in the cold with parking

    Great Location and 5 mile walking trail

    If you are traveling with dogs this place is great. The hotel is right next to a city maintained 5 mile walking trail. After 9 hours in the car we needed this trail and then before we left for the morning it was great to get in a long walk. The hotel was clean and they served a hot breakfast that wasn't bad. It was a little noisy with people and other dogs, overall great!! We are staying again on the trip back.

  • Pam

    Not sure it was worth it.

    Just ok. Grass was very long and unkept. Breakfast food under cooked. Headboard wasn't cleaned very well, made us wonder about other areas.
    Way over priced considering everything.
    We were so tired from our travels, so the bed was comfortable, nice shower, and so very grateful that our fur-babies were welcomed (without the additional fees).
    Just expected better based on other La Quintas we've stayed at.

    Adequate room, great breakfast offering

    We arrived here after several hours of driving in severe rain storms and the place was hopping. The room was adequate, nothing fancy and located on the first floor. My pup has never been in a hotel before so every noise was a distraction, but I found some good residential area behind the hotel and across the street to walk him. They provided individual brown bags for breakfast with hot bagel sandwiches and hash browns; a real upgrade from the typical offerings.

    Perfect for a quick stay

    Hotel was clean, room is good. Had tile floors versus carpet (at least our room on the 2nd floor did) so recommend you bring pet bed or something to lay on. Grab and go breakfast bar in the morning...yogurt, orange juice, and granola bars. Little green strip in the back for pet relief. Pet relief stations were right by the hotel doors and stocked! Worked out great for us!

I even felt comfortable enough to run with my dogs in the parking lot after a long day's drive. The staff was welcoming and friendly. The breakfast was plentiful and hot. There was a variety of foods to choose from to fit the needs of all travelers. I will definitely use this hotel again on my travels.

    Decent Place to Bring Fido

    We’ve stayed at this LaQuinta outside of Knoxville three times in the past year for two reasons; 1) it’s location on our route to and from Miami, FL and 2) we can bring our golden doodle, Mullie. The hotel is getting a little tired, chips in the sink, tub and furniture but the room is always clean. The reception staff are generally not super friendly and on our last time through gave us bad information. The gentleman who checked us in told us that breakfast stopped serving at 9:00 so we raced down before it closed only to learn it closed at 9:30. We will probably stay again for the two reasons mentioned previously.

    Great overnight stay

    We stayed here on our way back from Florida. It was clean, comfortable, and quiet. The breakfast was great! Very happy with this dog friendly hotel.

    Hotel was good, other guests were not

    Clean, friendly, fast check in. Room was updated. No smells, clean. Very good pet friendly hotel. The other guests in our area were loud way late into the night, causing my dog to bark. Driving for 12 hours and not being able to sleep because of others sucked.

    We loved it!

    This is the nicest, very dog friendly, motel that we ever stayed in! Very easy to find, right off the interstate. Good breakfast, too!

    Best La Quinta so far

    This is a great place to stay! Lots of grass, very private, & the poop bag dispenser was freshly filled and one was placed at every door. We stayed on New Years Eve because we were on a cross country holiday road trip. The bed were comfy, the room was very clean, staff was friendly, & the thermostat actually worked. We would definitely stay here again.

    Exceeded expectations!

    Clean rooms, friendly staff, comfy beds. Not sure what more I could have asked for from an overnight stop on our way north. Just great

    Great place

    This place was packed with dogs and their parents, but he was really well organised so there was no noise and no mess.

    Perfect room

    Our room was large which is much better when traveling with a large dog. The hotel has a walking trail right outside the front door. Everything was clean. and attractive.

    Clean, good location, great customer service

    Nice La Quinta. good location near places to eat and facility was clean. No pet fee!!! Did drive to Lakefront Park a few miles towards the river to run our pup. Great customer service at check in. Nice breakfast with standard La Quinta choices.

    Nice clean rooms with a friendly staff. I've really come to appreciate a clean room while traveling with my chihuahuas.

    First Floor Access

    We had a first floor room. It wasn’t far from the door out to the car. Good staff. Good coffee. No pet fees. Close to the freeway. Reasonable. I did not take the time to find the dog walking area. There was grass and poo bags. All good.

    Decent Hotel with Clean Accomodations

    Stayed overnight with 2 cats. The rooms were clean, the area was quiet, and the staff was attentive and polite. It's an older hotel, but well maintained. Will stay there again if in the area.

    Excellent Refuge From No AC

    Our AC went out unexpectedly and it was nice to have such a welcoming place to go with our two hounds. This hotel welcomes large dogs which was nice. We were also pleased with the fact the put us near an exit door which made it super easy to walk our dogs. There is a great trail near the hotel. There were at least 4 other dogs staying at the hotel the same time as us which was nice. It didn't make us feel so out of place. All of the staff we encountered were receptive to the animals. I would definitely recommend.

    Location is ok, the problem it’s next to a Red Roof Inn

    Will Be Back

    My husband, labradoodle and I stopped at La Quinta at the end of our first day of our cross country road trip. This was the first time we have taken our doodle to a hotel for an overnight and I was thrilled that they gave us a room that was right near a side entrance so we could quickly and easily take him out to potty. In addition, there is a really nice walking trail attached to the hotel which enabled me to take the doodle for a long walk to tire him out before the long car ride ahead. Continental breakfast was also very good!

    great hotel

    This hotel was perfect for my family and 2 dogs! There was plenty of grass areas with poop bags available for potty time. Rooms are large enough for 2 adults, 1 child and 2 dogs. Room also has fridge and microwave which was a huge bonus!! We will definitely stay here again when we visit Knoxville again.

    What a relief!

    After our horrible experience in a different hotel last night and driving 12 hrs today, arriving here is such a relief. The rooms and clean and comfy, the staff is nice, and we will get some good sleep tonight. I will definitely stay here again.

    From the moment I walked in the front door it was a pleasant place to stay. Our two bulldogs were welcomed with open arms (rubs and back scratches) and no extra charges! Staff was friendly and knowledgeable, rooms were clean and trendy, breakfast was your typical hot continental breakfast. We didn't use any other facilities such as the weight room or pool but they both looked nice. The beds were comfortable too and that's always a plus when you're away from home!

    Good property

    We found this property to be as anticipated: clean, quiet, and in a good location. They were friendly about our terrier dog and everyone was comfortable and happy. Breakfast was adequate, though I found it interesting and somewhat amusing that there was not a slicer for the bagels, because 'someone had stolen it and it had not been replaced.'

    Friendly staff, great room

    A very accommodating and professional team at this relatively new property. Hot breakfast included and sweet to the dogs. Only reason I didn't give it 5 bones is that there was some water damage on the ceiling and the entire room wasn't carpeted (an issue for my senior pup) but the shower was great, the room spacious and all in all I would stay there again, with or without my dogs!
