"Very pleased with our stay!!"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 14, 2014
Nicole F | Chickamauga, Georgia, United States
After doing a lengthy online search of reading reviews, I chose this hotel. We went up there just for one night for a concert and I'm so glad we picked this place!!! Michelle at the front desk was super friendly when I walked in to check in. She even guessed we were there for the concert, lol. The room was very clean and the temperature in it was nice and cool. I'm very picky about my pillows but the pillows on the bed were amazing!!! I only needed one!!! The ONLY downside was that breakfast ended kinda early at 9:30, but I would "suffer" with that again anytime to stay here again. We plan on making another trip to Knoxville in the summer and plan on staying here again!!!

"Barking Dogs"
1 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 9, 2014
UTKDad | Chattanooga, Tennessee
We were move from a room on the 1st floor with a huge barking dog in the next room, only to be moved to the 4th floor with yet another barking neighbor. Went to the front desk to complain,was told the GM would call me. Jesse P. (GM) did call my room and was not apologetic, offered no solution, and did not ask what he could do to improve the situation. Jesse stated that the La Quinta Brand is dog friendly and that they could not discriminate which rooms dogs were placed. Concluding our call, I told Jessee that I would never stay at another La Quinta. We stayed 2 nights and the BARKING dog stayed 2 nights. There were numerous guests that were unhappy on the 4th floor and complained to the manager. Overall the property and rooms were nice with the exception of the BARKING dogs.

"Great Experience"
5 of 5 stars Reviewed Sep 8, 2014
tripgrammy | Chambersburg, Pennsylvania
We had room 110 (ADA room) & it was a very big which gave lots of room for a wheelchair or extra equipment. Staff were very efficient at check-in & exceptionally pleasant. Breakfast was the best we have had at a LaQuinta. Scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage & potatoes as well as the typical waffles, bagels etc. It was well stocked throughout time period. Plenty of seating area.

"Great Staff and Manager"

This is our second extended stay at this location. Staff and management are friendly and courteous. Our room was clean and ready upon arrival. Although the place was sold out for the University of TN home game this did not seem to be a problem for the staff. Plan to stay again when visiting area.
