Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by tkcknoxx clean rooms, great staff
Location was perfect and rates very reasonable. We had an event in Knoxville and this was outside of city so no city noises but close enough to make our destination with no problems. Service was excellent. All staff encountered were friendly and helpful. The room was a little warm when we first got in, and had to adjust the air. It cooled off quickly. The breakfast was excellent, even my big eater husband was satisfied. I do wish there were more fresh fruit options. They just had a few bananas and apples and the bananas were very brown and no way to wash the apples. Coffee was excellent, biscuits and gravy excellent, eggs awesome, and my personal favorite cinnamon rolls. The staff kept the eating area clean and stocked. We liked it so much, we have already made reservations for two other trips to Knoxville in the upcoming months.

The first day of our stay was a little frustrating. We were on the Second Floor and the first keys given us for our room did not work. We had to go back down to the desk and get new keys.
The second day we left our room about 10:30 am and returned at 8:00 pm. No one had attempted to clean our room. Waste baskets were full. We were out of Kleenex and fresh towels.
My husband had to go to the desk and ask for towels and Kleenex. NO ATTEMPT had been made to tidy our room or bed.
We were very surprised that this problem would happen at a Holiday Inn Express.
Thank you for the cinnamon rolls for breakfast.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by fedacct Excellent, quick overnight stay on the way back from vacation
Nice, clean hotel room. Room is decorated in a modern style. It has a larger compact refrigerator. Tons of HD channels available on the cable. Great breakfast bar (and the food was surprisingly good) with pancakes, regular and turkey sausage, scrambled eggs, biscuits, gravy, incredibly good cinnamon rolls, and other standard pastry offerings.
Facility is relatively new in a visibly safe, suburban location. Tons of restaurants around including Ruby Tuesday, Shoney's, numerous fast food places, and an Ingles grocery store. The streets have sidewalks, and you can walk to some of these places.
Not sure about the previous comments regarding rude staff. Maybe they have since been replaced because everyone there was really nice to us.

This is one of HI's older hotels. Lots of places in the room that are showing wear and tear. Maintenance has kept the facility useable but it is not in the greatest of shape. We had to change rooms because the AC unit was not cooling. The substitute room was better but still not too much cooling. The staff at this location was excellent and provided information when requested. Breakfast was good with adaquate choices of several items. Does not appear the motel properly credited my IHG rewards points.

All went well, except for the large fingernail clipping we found on the floor upon room entry. I mentioned it to the management that night via the company website and they gave me $20 off on the room.m in fact both the manager and desk attendant were waiting for me at the desk upon checkout . Great folks!

My wife and I were traveling and needed a one night stay while on the road. Selected this hotel. Young lady at check in time was very friendly and helpful. It set the tone for our whole stay. Our room was excellent. We were very satisfied with our brief experience at this location. We highly recommend Holiday Inn in Powell, TN.

Everything was so quiet! Even though this hotel is next to the highway, I heard nothing. The room itself was even quiet, I couldn't hear the shower running in our room. Was one of the best nights sleep in a hotel that we've ever had. Room was clean, breakfast was good. Very happy

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Corvtte1 No shampoo
This is only meant to be a suggestion. We had no shampoo when it came to shower in the morning. We were getting ready for our trip to ontario, and noticed that we had two bottles of lotion and no shampoo ,we did have a conditioner . When we were leaving we were not asked if our stay was ok, or I would have said something. This will not stop us from staying at this great Holiday inn hotel. We always stay here going to Florida, and have for 8 years, we are coming back next year to this Holiday inn in Powell Tennessee.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by cseven Excellent Management and Staff / Great Service
Actual check out date eventually became the 27th instead of the 22nd.
My gratitude, and compliments in all respects, go to the management and staff of this location. Our reason for the trip, was for visiting a family member who was in the hospital, and to attend the funeral at the eventual passing of this family member. When this came to the attention of the management and staff, each went out of their way to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Knowing that we were having to sit long hours in the hospital with our loved one that was critically ill, these wonderfully attentive folks, thoughtfully left in our room, a small basket of soft drinks and snacks that could be taken with us to the hospital, to help make us more comfortable. Every day, the desk attendants were very helpful in every way they could be. And, although we had checked out the 22nd, it became necessary for us to check back in the same day and extend our stay through the 27th, and to reserve extra rooms for other family members who were to attend the funeral. The staff made the entire process, and the necessary changes, very easy for us. The young lady who keeps the breakfast area, was very pleasant and friendly, and, as usual, kept the area clean and well supplied. Also, she went out of her way to assist one of our family members who was busy with two children, to get her breakfast items to the table. My wife and I have stayed at this location many times in the past, and have always been very well satisfied. The thoughtful and considerate treatment we received from these folks in the last several days, helped make an otherwise hard to bear trip, so much better. Thank you so very much, to all the Management and Staff of the Knoxville - North - I-75 Holiday Inn in Powell, TN.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by DisapptdFormrCustmr Non-helpful non-caring front desk clerk with a bad attitude
Tried to check into this location on February 13th and ended up cancelling the reservation and leaving because of Brianne/ Brianna the front desk clerk. She was of absolutely no help, very inattentive, totally uncaring, and was not even at the front desk for the first 15 minutes I stood waiting to be helped while a growing crowd of people lined up trying to check in. She immediately coped a terrible attitude and after several failed attempts to deal with her, I exited the property and checked into a competitor's hotel for less money and had a perfectly decent experience. And I am a Platinium Elite IHG Rewards Club member, I can only imagine how she treats people who don't stay in IHG properties as much as I do on a yearly basis. I mailed the general manger Keith relating the experience I had several days later after returning home from my businees travels. So far I have not had a any reply from him. Needless to say I will make reservations at competitor's properties whenever I am in the Knoxville area for business purposes in the future.

We stayed here while visiting our daughter, because it's close to her temporary residence. Everything we needed was close by, and we were able to comfortably come and go. The staff was very pleasant, and the suite was just right for our needs.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by JRP53 Good location.
This was our first time staying at this HI. We arrived at 6 p.m.
It was a fast check in. I gave desk clerk reservation name and had room key within minutes. We collected our luggage from car and went to the room only to find that the beds were not made and bathroom was a mess. It was obvious that the room hadn't been cleaned that day. We went back to the front desk to the same clerk and explained that the room was not ready. Without a word to me, she took the room keys, did something on the computer system and handed me two new keys. No words of explanation, no sorry, just handed me the keys. Although the front desk lacked in friendliness, the second room was clean and the beds were comfortable. Breakfast the next morning was so-so.
We received no recognition for being club members.

Context - we were on our way to Orlando from way North, Detroit Michigan. A bit exhausted after driving around 550 miles that day; Took one of those lodging exits and landed up at this Holiday Inn Express. Chose this coz i am a IHG member + they take AAA cards.
the GOOD -
- Simple neat room good enough for a night halt
- good beds - critical right for a stopover expecially after a long drive
- simple but good breakkie
- easy admin procedures
the not so good -
- unfriendly lady at the counter (does not matter but more a FYI)
- cant recall anything else..
will recommend this express halt anytime..!!
