Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by adamsandlerfan Hotel under construction
This hotel may be nice when finished but right now it is like staying in a construction zone. Plus the pool is closed for remodel. My recommendation would be to stay at another holiday inn in the area until this one is complete.

Rooms are no longer comfortable, cannot set thermostat below 68.
I was told "New Corporate policy". I give Medical Seminars on sleep & the ability to set room temp. where you are comfortable is essential to quality sleep. Avoid Holiday Inns!!! They do not allow you to choose comfort anymore.

Have stayed at this hotel for several earlier business visits. It is convenient to the location involved. It has always been exceptionally friendly, clean, and with excellent food and service.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Loonysebec Nice place to stay
I was happy with the hotel. Staff was very friendly and the room and bathroom was very clean! I was very happy with this b/c if I'm going to pay a certain price I expect cleanliness and what not! I liked the bathroom and the size of the shower. The air unit, in the room, was very loud though. Woke me up, almost, every time it kicked on. I was a bit disappointed that there was no continental breakfast. I've stayed at many hotels and paid around the same or more and always there was some sort of continental breakfast. So, that was a bit of a surprise to me. They were doing maintenance on the hotel and in our hall, but was very please we were not disturbed by it. I would stay there again!

LOVELY, renovated hotel with lots of new furniture. Very comfortable - if you are staying in your room.
We selected this hotel as the last night of our vacation so that the kids could swim indoors. The hotel's pool was closed for renovation. Hotel's website says that their sister hotel next door would allow us to swim in their indoor pool. THEY DO NOT HAVE AN INDOOR POOL. The pool is outside and FREEZING. Not even the kids would get in.
Really missed the relaxation of a missing hot tub.
The room air conditioning would not go lower than 68 to "prevent them from freezing up." Unfortunately, on the top floor of the hotel where heat rises, 68 is simply not cool enough to sleep on a hot, humid Tennessee day.
A cheap continental breakfast would have been nice. Didn't need a newspaper.

I was disappointed that the entire pool and hot tub area were under construction. I looked forward to that after a hard match on the tennis courts twice each day. It was a disappointment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by purpleglaze Newly Remodeled/easy access to I/40
This hotel is a pleasant stay. They are currently remodeling, and as of 5/27/14, they are still in the process. The beds we had weren't the greatest, but weren't the worst. Maybe they will update those as well. The room was clean and the bathroom was decent.
The fridge didn't work, but, if I would have notified someone, I'm certain they would have brought a different one. The staff is very accommodating. We stay there several times a year on business. I would recommend this property to all.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by memelaty Going through a remodel
This is an older hotel that once all the rooms were smoking or they have allowed smokers in a non-smoking room. This hotel is going through a remodel so maybe it will get better soon. The smell in the room is the reason for the low star rating in room/comfort, room cleanliness and alble to relax. Being a non-smoker, the freshness of the room really matters. I will have to say that this hotel is close to the interstate, mall, and restaurants so that was a plus.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by CB99 Unaware of MAJOR renovations
Upon arrival I noticed that there were renovations under way. When I checked in, I was told that there were renovations taking place and some access was restricted for the construction. as well as some parking. Upon arriving at my room , I discovered that the construction was taking place right next door. The sound deadening between the rooms was non-existant because I could hear the person in the room next to me tapping on something. I also woke up to the sound of construction equipment the next morning.
I used reward ponts for a two night stay and checked out after the first night and called to get the points for the second night added back to my account and am waiting for this to occur.
This was supposed to be a relaxing mini vacation for myself and my wife. Needless to say the construction did not allow this to happen.. If I had been aware of renovations when I made the reservation, I would have stayed at another location.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Sweater Rooms Comfortable and newly remodled
Even though the hotel is undergoing a renovation to its entire hotel, and for the best, the pool was quite dirty. We took our grand kids in for an evening swim which they had been talking about for the entire trip there and we wouldn't let them get off the steps as the floor and water was dirty.
Otherwise, the rooms were newly decorated, clean and comfortable.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by NateTN Charged for restaurant tab and no contact
I was charged $166+ on my credit card for a restaurant/bar tab after staying ONE night at the hotel. I contacted the hotel after reviewing my final billing, left a message for the manager with my concerns, along with my contact information and...NO CONTACT. I understand that the hotel is being refurbished...I get it. That said, the lack of contact after a mistake on my bill and an outstanding balance on my credit card in excess of $166...THAT...I don't get. I would appreciate a response and am willing to speak with someone at the hotel about this...IF you contact me as I have requested. NOT impressed at the moment.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Degist Old Pet Friendly Hotel But Being Renovated
We had 2 adjoining rooms in what I assume was the unrenovated part of the hotel. Our rooms were clean but old and dated. The pool area is being renovated and the water was cold. And overall it had a run down look to it. But it was a good place to let the kids unwind. Housekeeping knocked on our doors even though we had our do not disturb sign up. The pay per view movies are SO high!! I thought that was weird and there are hardly any tv channels. No Bravo, or E or MTV... Lol... Check in was a breeze!! Super fast! The food at sizzles or whatever the restrauant there is called was fantastic!!!!!!! We got the Club sandwich and fries!!! Better than any local place we ate at. Overall it was a good stay. I think it will be great once renovated.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kimberly3588 Excellent!
My husband and I were so impressed with the Holiday Inn at Knoxville West (Cedar Bluff). When you first walk in you notice how clean and nice the lobby looks and then you are greeted by warm and friendly staff. The check in process was very quick and pleasant. Our room was clean with updated decor and the bed was very comfortable. We enjoyed the indoor heated pool with our 5 year old which was also very clean. We knew that the hotel was in the process of renovations but it didn't bother our stay at all. While we were there the elevator went down but the hotel staff had it back up and running quickly. The location was also great with many places to eat and shop without having to get back on the interstate. We will definitely be staying there again the next time we return to Knoxville.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by El Tarbox good location and excellent service
I did not have the reservation and needed a safe, convenient, comfortable place to stay the night. Despite the late hour, the hotel had availability and thr front desk offered military rate, comfortable location( parking, away from the highway, close to exit and elevator). Staff offered water, the newspaper and everyone was very nice, friendly and caring. The place offers plenty of comfort, it is quiet, and even though I noticed a sign for renovations, I did not see or hear anything till I checked out. Complimentary parking. Enjoyed it.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Wheninrome What a great stay
Stayed here for a week to visit family. Everything about my stay was excellent. It was obvious that the staff there really cares about hospitality, which is not always evident at the hotels I visit. Had a great time winding my evenings down in the bar, and couldn't ask for a better room! I would recommend this hotel to anyone, and will certainly visit again.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by guy in Tenn Nice place but
First of all going thru remodeling but still the hotel is very nice, staff, desk, and everyone very nice. Took a very long time to get hot water for a shower. The heating and air conditioning has the old style temperature control like hot to cold...No digitial thermostat; never could get the room to comfortable temperature. But I would stay there again, but the two items mentioned above needs attention.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Priorityclub1 Filthy And Bugs
When I found a bug crawling on the night stand I looked behind the mattress. It was filthy. Housekeeping apparently cleans only what is visible and ignores the overall cleanliness of the rooms. They did move me but found similar conditions with the exception of the bug. Hotel staff expects guests to be satisfied with the fact they will inform housekeeping of the issues so that a FUTURE guest won't have the same bad experience with their stay.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tom888888 Good room and location - one minor complaint
The hotel appears to be an oder property that has been renovated. Part of the property is still under renovation. The room was clean and comfortable and quiet. The bed was comfortable.
My only complaint is the lack of any soap dish or shelf or anything to place soap or shampoo on in the shower. I was given a walk in shower. There is nothing to place an shower necessities on. The choices were to either place them on the floor of the shower, or on the top of the toilet tank outside the shower. I have never seen this in any hotel and expect that one easily installed convenience in the shower of any hotel property I stay at. This could make it difficult for an elderly person or someone with physical limitations to safely manage a shower. I did mention this to the clerk at the front desk. She told me most of the rooms don't have them. How did that get overlooked when renovating the rooms? Come on IHG, it is the details that make you better than other chains. Don't ignore them.
