We stayed 3 days visiting family at this La Quinta. Gorgeous room in a recently remodeled hotel with excellent staff, delicious breakfast and coffee/tea available in the lobby round the clock. Our room wasn't ready at check in so we were upgraded to a suite...nice touch. Easy access to I-75. Thanx to Ashley who did a great job with our room. Room 323 (July 20-22)

My kids and I were traveling with our new little shih tzu. We had a terrible time finding a clean place that allowed for pets. The first night we were in Knoxville we stayed at a nasty hotel. The next morning we drove around Knoxville for a long while until someone referred us to this La Quinta Inn. We spent two nights here and enjoyed every minute of it. Very clean place! The staff went out of their way to help out and always had big smiles and very friendly. We could not have found a better place to stay! I actually made a good friend while staying here Tabetha the night shift lady was so sweet and helpful! My kids and I were sad when we had to leave. Whenever I'm anywhere near Knoxville this will be the place I stay! I assure you pets or not it's a very nice place to stay. It would be hard to beat it!

We have a little 2 year old Shih Tzu.This was our first vacation since we had him. We were looking for somewhere to stay and noticed most places charge extra for dogs. LaQuinta does not charge for dogs. Everyone that had dogs there were very appreciative of this and said they wouldn't stay anywhere else. Everywhere inside and out was very clean!!! We will be back!!!
