Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by catwoman from Lynchburg Great place to stay!
This place was a wonderful respite from travel - clean and comfortable rooms, friendly and helpful staff (especially the nice lady in the breakfast room!), good free breakfast, great price (used the coupon from a travel book). We were towing a large trailer and had no problems with being able to park it over on the far side of the lot. This is the second time we stayed in this same hotel - great experience both times!

They upgraded the room--according to the staff. However, room had a view of the Holiday Inn Express sign from the back side. If you looked hard either right or left you could see a little daylight. While the location may be excellent, their choice of "upgrades" let much to be desired. Additionally, accessing the property is difficult. You must wind your way around a strip mall and Bass Pro shop. The food was outstanding and the breakfast service staff very pleasant.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Kikila Excellent service, but breakfast needs work
We were very happy with our room and the service. We were disappointed with the "hot" breakfast items. The sausage and gravy tasted a little off, and weren't very hot. I didn't see an attendant. Other than breakfast, the place was awesome!

We stayed at this hotel twice when we traveled with the Hot Rod Power Tour, once heading to North Carolina and again when the tour went to Knoxville. The staff was friendly, rooms were fine. We would stay here again. I would suggest the hotel add some signage to help guide travelers to the hotel once you get off the public roads.

The check-in staff was very friendly and helpful and ask us several times if there was anything we needed as we walked by getting settled in. The Breakfast staff was very helpful even getting something out of the kitchen for my gluten free diet.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Goldfinns Updated, clean property—what you'd expect for HIE
Everything was great and the staff was wonderful. We booked a "suite," which is really just a semi-suite with partial wall separating the sleeping area/TV from the lounging area/bathroom.
We had hoped that there would be slightly more privacy (being a suite) and also a second television in the lounging area (the Fairfield across the parking lot offers similar semi-suites with two TVs), though this wasn't much of an issue since we had scarce little time to watch even just a few minutes of the news, etc. each day (in the area to attend a conference in Knoxville).
It's very convenient location is a definite reason to book this hotel. Just off the expressway, easy to get to, and located near conveniences (gas station, restaurants, shopping) and recreation destination (near Pigeon Forge, Tanger Outlet Center, Gatlinburg, The Smoky Mountains).
Overall this is a nice property and in line with what you expect with the Holiday Inn Express rebranded properties. A very adequate experience! Thanks!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by ItsDave2013 A quiet comfortable and convenient location
Have stayed at this property 3 times for just an overnight while traveling. Each time the staff were friendly and efficient. I have always had a clean, quiet room. Have never tried the breakfast bar since we always leave too early, but they have plenty of variety for those who are staying for breakfast.
See you all next time through!

Check-in was easy and friendly. All three front desk personnel were very friendly and helpful. I received mail delivery and actually forgot that it was coming. Upon returning to our room the phone was blinking with a message.
The first time I have witnessed such a friendly attendant for breakfast. This lady not only made sure everything was stocked but greeted guests and walked around asking if we needed anything. Rooms were beautiful and well stocked.
Conveniently located next to Bass Pro Shop which we enjoyed walking to for dinner two nights. We were pleasantly surprised to receive a discount on our meals because we were HIE guests!
Most importantly, we felt very safe at this location and will definitely return in the future. Thanks HIE staff for making our stay so wonderful!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Ladies Blues '01 Exceptional Breakfast Service
I wanted to say "Thank You" to the staff for setting up the breakfast bar early last weekend for my daughter's softball team and parents. We had to be at the tournament in Pigeon Forge very early both days. Even though the breakfast was scheduled to begin at 7:00, you graciously prepared the breakfast early and had it set up by 6:00am! This was a nice surprise for us as we did not have to stop and get breakfast on the way. Also, the food was enjoyed and the selection was good. Thank you again for accommodating us!!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by odakc21 Excellent accomodations! Exceptional service!
Stayed here on our way through to Nashville from Northeastern PA. The hotel is in a great location with Bass Pro Shop/Outdoor World right across the parking lot. There were a variety of restaurants within walking distance which was ideal after driving all day. The hotel itself was extremely clean and the staff was very friendly and accommodating. Breakfast was excellent and the staff ensured that all of the selections were neat, orderly, and always stocked. Overall, a great experience. I will definitely stay here again if passing through the area!

We had to make a special request and the staff met our needs. Our stay was pleasant and the hotel was well maintained. We all had a restful night of sleep. There was plenty of food establishments and reasonable gas prices close by. I recommend this HIE to anyone who needs overnight accommodations.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Butch66 Tremendous Customer Service -- Special Situation
We were transporting my 91-year-old mother in conjunction with her move from KY to SC. She has dementia and pulmonary fibrosis, is on oxygen 24x7 and needs close supervision.
It was imperative that we have a handicap room with an adjoining room. At this point, enter "Sandra" who is an awesome employee of the Holiday Inn Express in Kodak. She answered the phone when I called to make the reservation, and she absolutely took care of everything. She listened, and responded!
The two rooms were very nice, the food was good, and all of the employees were most helpful. Sandra had taken the time to inform her employee partners of our special needs situation, and it felt like we were all family.
Moving one's 91-year-old mother is stressful enough. But staying at this Holiday Inn Express was like a breath of fresh air. To Sandra, and all of your partners, Thank You! We will always remember your kindness to our family.

I stayed here with three children and the hotel was great. Staff were very friendly and helpful, the room was clean and neat. Great place! Only problem was we had to drive a little way to get dinner, so next time I would stop somewhere and bring it with me when I checked in so we didn't have to go back out.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by don3257 Great place to stay if you don't need internet
I was very impressed with the staff and facilities. However I was unable to connect with the internet the entire stay. I contacted the front desk the night I arrived and they told me everything was working fine. I had the same problem the next morning, They just didn't have a clue as to what to do, offered there sympathy and sent me down to Star Bucks. The only way I would come back to this property is on vacation.
