The Knoxville Area

Come see why TripAdvisor recently recognized our hotel as a winner of its highly coveted Certificate of Excellence award. This acknowledgement is a result of our many five-star ratings and favorable reviews by satisfied past guests who loved our great location, clean and spacious guest rooms, stellar customer service, and overall excellent value. Whether you are reserving your room to attend a college graduation at the University of Tennessee, in town visiting family and friends, or staying over for a business trip, take advantage of our hotel’s long list of first-class features. You’ll find everything you’re looking for in this lively city, including great restaurants, shopping malls, and many fun things to do around Knoxville.

As the third largest city in the state, our area houses the University of Tennessee’s flagship campus, helping this hotspot thrive as a booming college town. College sports fans flock to the area to see the famous Volunteers – or Vols, for short – compete in the NCAA. As a city with a solid commercial presence, professional travelers come through on business at major corporate headquarters. This locale also garners activity and attracts guests to the Tennessee Supreme Court’s major courthouse in this metro region. As a premier Appalachian town, Knoxville has its own distinct culture and local flavor for guests to explore.  Located near the unincorporated area of Strawberry Plains, our hotel is strategically located for easy travels in the eastern part of our state. We are right off I-40, so we welcome visitors traveling through to stop at our pet-friendly hotel with free parking and great location near the city’s major attractions.
