"Top Notch"

Brand new & beautifully done! Helpful and welcoming staff and the cleanest, nicest La Quinta facility I've seen. This is the best value in Knoxville! Great neighborhood to walk our dog, too. Right off I-40, but quiet. Couldn't be nicer!

"One Heck of a First Impression!"

This is my first experience with a La Quinta. I'll be honest, I didn't have a positive impression of La Quinta based solely on locations near where I live. But the location was near where I needed to be, the price was fair, and they are pet-friendly. Other reviewers set my mind at ease, but I still wasn't sure until I walked in. What a gorgeous hotel! It is apparently still pretty new. My room was truly beautiful. I've stayed at higher priced brands that, honestly, can't hold a candle to the decor. The bed was excellent, and the room setup was perfect for work and relaxation. I was also surprised by the breakfast. I was expecting a more or less continental breakfast with waffles, but there were hot items and meats as well...not even mentioned on the website. It is near the interstate but there was no traffic noise. The staff was very friendly, and I had a chance to speak with the manager, Jessie. It was obvious he is proud of his property (and he should be) and cares about its upkeep. Even my dogs got pampered by employees as we went for our walks. The pool was clean and, of course, quite refreshing in the 95 degree heat! If you've never tried La Quinta, this would be a great one to start with. If you have stayed in La Quinta before, I'm willing to bet this one will surprise you!

The hotel is new with great looks and located in a quiet setting. You can walk the neighborhood nearby yet it is close to many restaurants five minutes away. The staff are very friendly as well as the breakfast was above average for the price of the room.

This LaQuinta was a clean, open hotel. Not very loud. Actually, nothing really note worthy here. People were nice, but no standout. In fact, I never knew anyone's name at all. Food was okay, nothing stand that stood out. They took pets, which was terrific. Big downer for us was this "religious(?) compound that overlooked the property. It was not soothing having this cement block building with "flames" on it. Yucch! Visited the zoo, but, they actually had to block the freeway off THE day that I went there with my sons. There was a sniper walking along the freeway that Day!!! I wasn't exactly feeling a great deal of comfort or security in the city while we were there... All in all, the hotel was okay. Quiet. Immediately next door to a RedRoof (I won't stay at those motels...EVER!). Their 1/2 of the parking lot was busy, but LaQuinta was not. Too bad. The better of the chains for sure...
