    Do not book here

    This hotel is gross. The room was very humid. We found mold on the mattress cover and the walls. It's dirty. Not worth the money. This was the worst Red Roof we've stayed in.

    Horrible place!

    Dirty and smelly. Leaky a/c didn't cool the room. Laid on my blanket on top of their gross sheets. Will NEVER stay again. The LA Quinta next door is so so much better!

    Not a good experience.

    One of 2 beds were broken and so was the door inbetween rooms couldn't be locked glad my neighbor didn't surprise me in the middle of the night. Also, sticky floors, tub extremely slow drain even with no plug water up to ankles, and paper thin walls could hear the baby 3 doors down crying in the am. My mistakes for picking the cheapest place in the Knoxville area, will not stay there again.

    We stopped here as our cross country trip became more and more complicated and we decided we needed to stay somewhere before we had initially planned. The quality of the hotel was much nicer than we expected, and the breakfast was perfect to meet our needs. My pooch was happy and could hear the sounds of other dogs in the hotel, which made her more excited. There was ample space to take her for a walk, and it was clean, which is always something that makes me happy to find.

    Decent Hotel, Noisy Highway

    My husband, pup, and I actually enjoyed this hotel for the most part. Our room was very clean and the breakfast was pretty decent. Despite being located right off the highway, this hotel is convenient and very pet friendly.

    nice people, filthy hotel

    Nice people at the front desk, great referral for delivery food from Bruno's (pasta and breadsticks), but made the mistake of moving the bedside table to plug in the white noise machine -- ABSOLUTELY FILTHY! Ironic considering the pungent cleaning chemical odor had us coughing and tearing up for several hours after arrival. Woke up, showered and ran from the building at 5am just to get the heck out of there. BTW, hall carpet and elevator floor were nasty, too!
