I travel the Eastern Half of the USA and stay in a lot of Holiday Inn Express properties. This property is one of my top two of all the properties I stay at. They always follow the rules. My two most important criteria are friendly, efficent staff and how clean a property is. After a long day of travel and customers I can count on the welcome mat being out and a clean room at the Powell location.
Kudos to Keith and his staff.

Would recommend this to all travelers.

I was in room #217 and we also had #219 which is in an open hallway right above the lobby-breakfast area. You hear everyone in the lobby and all the elevator noise. 217 and 219 and the rooms below should either had the hallways enclosed or the rooms soundproofed better. People get off the elevator, stand looking down at the lobby and talk all hours of the night right out side your door.
Overall the facility was nice but this very poor building design would stop me from ever staying again if I had to stay in the same rooms.

We had a block of rooms for a wedding and we were delighted with the comfort and cleanliness of the lobby and the rooms. The staff was gracious and allowed us an extension the day of the wedding. Thumbs up!

Found this location on The IHG website while traveling South from Michigan. Glad we did! This is new and clean and right off of I-75. Very convenient. Rooms was very clean, service was good and personnel was friendly. Breakfast bar was better than most. Many good restaurants in vicinity.

As low cost hotels go, this one was okay. Nothing stood out as overly well done or poorly done. The front desk employee was less than pleasant but who knows maybe she was not feeling well.
There was a used washcloth slung over the shower curtain when I checked into the room. Other than that is was clean.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by zipn Bad Internet provider
This property is using an internet provider that forces ADs onto the tops of every browser page - the ads are for local (Knoxville) businesses. No way to get stop them from returning when you close them out.
Most Holiday Inn properties don't do this - but I guess this franchise does - I won't be staying there again as I require high speed internet for business and can't have ads popping up. - The ads were very specific to this hotel location and provider and are NOT specific to my computer or browser (no ads in any other location).
On top of that, even with the ads, the internet connection was slow compared to many hotels.
Not good for a business trip.

The title says it all. Our room, and the hotel in general, was clean, comfortable, quiet and convenient to I-75.

The morning of our second stay there was a ball team there and it was busy for breakfast and the front desk lady came out and helped the breakfast hostess refill supplies.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by LightninJohn Comfy bed. Good restaurant across street.
One complaint: noisy breakfast area. Chairs scraping loudly across floor as one slides back. Nylon pads badly needed to suppress noise.

We have stayed here many times on our trips north and south. The hotel ambiance, furnishings, and appearances have always been fantastic. This experience was no different and we were upgraded to a suite which was great. The staff has always been competent and courteous. We like IHG hotels and this one is near the top in all areas. Thanks.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Chelle31 Not what I expected
The room was really not worth the price we paid. The room was not clean, the furniture was dusty. They changed my price that was quoted on the internet and did not notify me of the change until check-in.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by PawleysGal No room at the inn
Called this hotel directly and was told there was no rooms available and that they were "sold out". Hung up and then immediately booked a room online and walked in 10 minutes later and was able to check in. Huh? I just think that the woman who answered the phone just did not want to take a phone reservation. Really? Hotel is doing good enough to turn away business? Lesson learned for future hotel reservations for Holiday Inn express.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Unadilla This place needs work...
Night manager during the week was very nice but property just not up to snuff. Internet barely functioning on either public use computer or in our room (we had 2 lap tops and an IPad with no good results)...
Breakfast was atrocious meat choices rotated three times but pancake like "eggs" and other offerings were awful. 2 days there was no fruit at all... Healthy choices very limited... If you wanted to raise your cholesterol level you might have liked it more...
I have a high frequent guest level and had to remind front desk staff of "Loyalty Gift". No upgrade offered...
Management needs to get on top of this...

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Traveler6969 Poor Housecleaning
Upon entering this room it was apparent that this room was not clean. The bathroom tub and floor had hair left on them. Also the shower curtain had a brown stain on it next to the commode about 6 inches away. You can imagine how that looked and what might be going through our minds as to what this might be. We didn't examine it. It was very disturbing, disgusting and very unsanitary. A recommendation would be to have a manager check the cleanliness before checking someone into the room.

Everyone was so kind and helpful to my son and I. My son had outpatient surgery and they did more than they had to to make our evenings pleasant. They were always helpful and kind whenever I asked the staff for something. Because of their courtesy I decided to join the IHG club. This is only place I will be staying from now on.

I stayed here recently for a graduate school interview at UT Knoxville. The room was comfortable, had a refrigerator, was clean and comfortable. There was some sort of church youth group staying as well who were a little loud, but for the price it was great.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PlethoDonJuan 4 years and a dozen stays later
I've been coming to this HIX regularly for 4 years with no substantial complaints. This is a great location for my job and is a bit easier to stay at than the heart of Knoxville. I have always found a clean facility with friendly and courteous staff. The rooms have been in great shape even before the recent renovation. Great value for me as they meet the government per diem rate. Lots of choices for dining even within walking distance. I highly recommend Aubrey's across the street. Breakfast choice here is pretty standard with the usual cereal/yogurt/egg/biscuit/toast options. More fruit might be better and sadly no peanut butter on my last stay. Some minor problems with wi-fi connectivity. Fitness room is adequate but some free weights and a fan might be nice.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by lishanld Great location and delightful stay
We really enjoyed our stay and had an easy check in. It would be nice if Holiday Inn Express would overhaul it's breakfast selections. They are very carb and processed...Many people are trying to eat healthier or need to and the options for healthier eating are: yogurt with high fructose corn syrup and other unhealthy things, boiled egg, fresh fruit (maybe an apple or banana but not both), and water. We enjoy our stay but would love some better and healthier eating choices.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by roadshow Helpful staff and comfortable bed
This is an excellent location, getting to downtown Knoxville was extremely quick and easy. The beds were very comfortable and the A/C worked well. The breakfast choices were awesome and replenished as needed.
The entire staff was helpful with local travel directions.
The only issue was the lack of an exhaust fan in the room bathroom. It took awhile for the steam to clear.
