The pillows need to be more firm, everything else no complaints.
Really enjoy the pancakes you serve, awesome pancake maker. The hotel in all areas very clean and the staff are very perfessional and know their job. I just want to comment on the rooms they are very quite and I really appreciate that all the times I have stayed.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JGJG5 Pet Friendly and breakfast needs variety
Breakfast needs more variety. It is the exact same as the Holiday Inn Express IHG we stayed in Brooklyn, two South Carolina locations, and TN.
This location in additional to the others were pet friendly. Actually had a large container in the lobby of dog biscuits. Will stay here again.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 Holiday Inn Express Knoxville - Strawberry Plains
II'm a fan of Holiday Inn Express, but this hotel is definitely not up to par. The hotel itself is tired and worn out. The staff was friendly, but not exceptional (for example, no acknowledgement of my IHG rewards membership).
Here was the main issue that made the experience mediocre. I got to the hotel late, and was tired. Intended to drop my bags in my room and run out to get something to eat. However, the door to my room would not latch shut. Went down to ask for another room, but instead the desk clerk insisted on coming up to see if he could fix the door. After 10 minutes of trying, he decided he couldn't. I then had to take my bags back downstairs (for the second time) so he could give me another room. He did so, and when I got to the room, the door opened and the room was occupied! Needless to say, the occupant of the room was not happy. So...back downstairs, with the bags, for the third time. The clerk said he realized his mistake and was just "coming up to get me". He gave me another room, which was an accessible room. I realize that sometimes these are the only option available, but I like to avoid them when I can - the extra stuff in the tub is a bother, and the very small counter around the sink is a pain.
Breakfast at this hotel was also below HIE standards. The egg offering was essentially an egg "hockey puck" - like the mini omelettes that are usually pretty good, but not folded and with no cheese. The bacon was the thinnest (and most tasteless) bacon I have ever had at an HIE.
The good news is that I stayed at HIE's the next 2 nights, in other cities, and had good experiences.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ohio63 Welcoming Staff and Comfortable Room
We got in late, but the staff was friendly and welcomed us. They answered all questions and got us checked-in quickly. All aspects of the room - beds, bathroom, quietness, ... - met or exceeded our expectations. Breakfast had a good selection and everything we needed. A great place to stay for tired travelers.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by JOIHAM Nice Place to stay
I enjoyed my stay and the rooms were nice and comfortable. This hotel is near the interstate and places to eat. Great staff and great breakfast! The only problem I had with this hotel is the hallway on the 4th floor smelled very strong of old cigarette butts. It was strange because it is a non-smoking floor/hotel. I couldn't smell it in the room but as soon as you left your room that smell hit you right in the nose?

We had a very pleasant stay. Everyone of the staff was extremely helpful, polite, and friendly. This includes front desk, breakfast, and housekeeping. Great breakfast buffet spread. The hotel was clean, comfortable, and conveniently located to I-40. We would definitely stay again. The kids loved the salt water pool.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Georgeup Excellence in every way
Our son and his family recently moved from Birmingham, AL to Chapel Hill, NC. It was relatively easy to visit with them when they lived in Birmingham since we live in Decatur, AL, about 90 miles. Well, when they moved to Chapel Hill, the drive now became 550 miles. During the good weather months, we can make the trip from Decatur via Chattanooga, TN; Knoxville, TN; Asheville, NC; to Chapel Hill, NC. Well, 550 miles is a little more than I prefer to drive in one day; so we decided to break up the trip into two days. With Knoxville, TN being about the half way point, we chose to stay at the Holiday Inn Express at Exit 398. With the facilities that is available at this Holiday Inn Express, we decided to make this hotel our stop over during the return trip from Chapel Hill to Decatur. We were not dissappointed during the return trip. The people at the desk are friendly, the selection at the breakfast area are second to none, and the people working in that area are very friendly. It is also a pet friendly hotel as well as being a smoker friendly hotel. I personally do not smoke; but my wife does and she was very comfortable at this hotel. They have a swimming pool as well as a workout room and both rooms we stayed in were very comfortable. I definitely recommend this hotel if you find yourself traveling on I-40 near Exit 398. I hope we will be able to find a nice hotel whenever we drive to Chapel Hill during the bad weather months via Birmingham, AL; Atlanta, GA; Greenville, SC; Charlotte, NC; to Chapel Hill, NC.

this was a stopover on our way to Myrtle Beach. It was nice to spend a night resting very peaceable before going on to the beach. We stayed at a Holiday Inn Express in Asheville on the way back. It was great also.

We totally enjoyed our stay at this Holiday Inn. Spacious room, wonderful breakfast, and great staff.
Hotel was a short distance from Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, and shopping.
Only drawback was that there was no Hot Tub.
I would definitely recommend this Hotel to any of my friends

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by R_L_E Convenient, clean and good service
Our stay was very good. Very easy access to and from I-40; Cost was reasonable and lower than many others in the area. Many good restaurants close by. For us,mattress was too soft and feather pillows were not comfortable; In the future I would request a room with a firm mattress and foam pillows, if such are available. These may be totally acceptable to others, so this is not a complaint... just personal preference. Otherwise the stay was great and I would recommend this hotel to anyone traveling through Knoxville.

Room was clean and well laid out. The hotel was modern and clean. Large flat screen TV and nice desk in room. Bathroom had granite counter. I liked the nice strip on the bottom of the door to keep out noise--why don't all hotels do this? Room was quiet and bed was comfortable. Hotel was in a semi-secluded quiet location. Staff was very friendly and courteous. Room had Wi-Fi as well as an Ethernet cable connection. Nearby restaurants. I would recommend this hotel.
