This is by far one of the finest HDE that I have ever stayed at! It's ultra modern décor is wonderful and the staff was very attentive. The normally bland HDE food was outstanding.

I truly enjoyed my stay here. Newer hotel and well maintained. I thought the beds were a bit to firm and it made it difficult to sleep on. But, to each his own. Small indoor pool area. Small workout area, which was nice for early morning cardio workouts. Breakfast was good with decent variety; they switch up the menu every couple of days. Staff were excellent and very friendly. I would definitely stay here again!

The overall experience from check-in to check out was great. All of the staff were helpful and friendly. The check-in and check-out went smoothly. Most of all the room was very clean and the bed was more than comfortable. The breakfast staff was friendly and kept all entries well supplied and the area clean. I would stay there again. i give the whole experience an A+.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Nvestor location???
it is an odd place for a hotel. hard to get to even with GPS. its new which is good. typical breakfast. but I was unimpressed with the service of the front desk. the internet was horrible. I explained this to the front desk but it fell on deaf ears. I wouldn't recommend this location because of the location the staff or the internet.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by hiitsme Great Location. Near Everything we needed.
We visited Knoxville for a school function. This hotel is well positioned to get to campus within 10 minutes. It's right off the interstate and only a few miles down the interstate to the exit for Alcoa HWY and then a turn for campus. Also, it was a short drive to Walmart and Gander Mountain. Waffle house is a half minute drive and several restaurants are within a 1-2 minute drive and plenty more within a 5 minute drive. The decor of this hotel is pretty interesting. I was scared at first by the 1970's motel blue streak running up the front but I was calmed inside. The lobby was very nice. Several tables for breakfast and several comfortable chairs as well. I was greeted quickly upon entering the door and check in was quick. They offered me a comp bottle of water which I took. The rooms are really nice. They have a keurig in room which was a nice change.
Bad stuff: The halls are very alive after 9 am. If you're a late sleeper this may not be the hotel for you. I don't know if it was the hotel staff or just people going in and out. But I could hear everything.
The fitness center is pretty small. Two treadmills, 1 elliptical and a small weight stack, which is easy enough to make do with. The problem was that there was about six inches of space between the equipment (maybe 9"…. didn't measure) which made getting on and off a hassle, especially if someone else was using the one next to you. The biggest problem was the heat. There was no temp control in the room and it was sweltering. After 15 minutes of cardio I felt like I'd done 45. Also, the water cooler was turned off.
Next bad thing was the pool (location and indoor pool were the driving factors for picking this hotel). We used it the first night and everything was okay. The second night we went to use it and it was closed for routine cleaning. This wouldn't have been such a bother if they put the sign up the day before and said it would be closed for cleaning the next day. The most annoying part though was that no one was actually cleaning it while it was closed.
Good Stuff: Service. The breakfast staff was very nice. They greeted everyone that came down and managed to chat with a few people between keeping everything stocked and fresh. (IHG, you should definitely commend these people [it was a lady and a guy working 3/28 and 3/29], they are a great asset to this hotel). The breakfast was your standard HIE fare, pancakes, meat, biscuits, gravy, and assorted bread and pastries. One thing I didn't like was that the only yogurt offered was sugar free. I realize the healthy hype for yogurt but I just really don't like artificial sweeteners and won't get into why they're not good to eat. But needless to say, a regular cup of yogurt would have been great. I just went to Walmart and grabbed a few so no huge problem.
Coffee: I thoroughly enjoyed being able to grab a cup whenever coming through the lobby. They had decaf and reg caf so for the coffee lovers out there, you can have some whenever.
Recap: The things to fix would be servicing the pool during hours people are not likely to use it instead of the evening. Also, adding another yogurt choice would be great (although I will say I'm being picky in that regard ha, the rest of breakfast was great). Lastly, some way to control the temp in the fitness center is seriously needed (Every other IHG hotel I've visited that had a fitness center has had either a temp control or a fan).

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nerdyguy Great New Location
This new facility replaced the old one across the interstate and it's already one of my favorite HI Express locations in Tennessee. Conveniently located with direct access to I-40/I-75. Not far from the mall, lots of eating places, the University of Tennessee, and downtown Knoxville. I had a comfortable room with a nice high-def flat-screen TV and lots of cable choices. Instant recognition for Priority Club members at the front desk, which is always appreciated. I was given a nice upgraded room, plus bonus points. The breakfast area was spotless with the usual menu choices.
One small complaint - the vending machines have been removed and to get a soft drink, you have to buy an overpriced one from the small market beside the front desk. Also, a room tip: if you think noise from the nearby interstate might bother you, ask for a room on the backside of the building.
This location is highly recommended.

For the past year I have been traveling through many states and using HI Exp hotels. This one tops them all. Newer hotel. When I checked in early evening the front desk staff were top notch, customer service related, friendly, the best I have encountered in a long time. Room was nice, clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great as well. The individual responsible for the breakfast was very attentive to all the details making sure all the stations had adequate food. Overall a great hotel to stay at and my travels will bring me back to Knoxville many times and this will be the place I stay in the future.

This was one of the friendliest hiexpress we have stayed in. After a long day of driving, we pulled in and walked into a very nice lobby and front staff were so nice and welcomed me and had everything ready for my stay. Which was very nice.
What made our stay the best, is ALL the staff made us feel like this was our home during our short stay. From the cleaning staff, breakfast staff, and others....they were the friendliest ever. It made a long day not so long. Thank you for what you do. You made my stay GREAT! Don't loose this...you will make many others happy too!

Consistently good service from all staff members. Front desk person -- Tia -- was outstanding; one of the best we'd ever had the good fortune to encounter!
Property was newly opened -- so everything in it was in pristine condition. Proximity-activated room "keys" were a delightful and convenient bonus.

We've stayed in a lot of HIExpress hotels and this one was hands down, the best yet. The hotel is new and the amenities are lovely. The hotel. Lerk that. THe hotel clerk that checked us in on Christmas Eve went out of his way to mKe us feel at home and seemed very excited about the new hotel. We'd definitely recommend it.

We stayed here while visiting family in Knoxville for the first time
since this hotel has recently opened. We are delighted with
the accommodations and especially pleased by the attentiveness, generosity and welcoming attitude of every employee we encountered. This is a hotel that matches any high end hotel
we have stayed in before. We enjoyed the breakfasts with
our toddler child and could not have been treated more
kindly. We look forward to making this hotel a regular stop
on future visits to Knoxville.
