My husband and I are retired and spend a lot of our time driving across country visiting our many grandchildren. We try to find hotels that are reasonably priced, clean and comfortable and those offering a tasty, hot breakfast. Best Western Knoxville Suites is a stellar example of all our criteria! It feels safe, clean, comfortable, well-appointed, and well-managed. And very reasonably priced via trip advisor.
This trip we booked a room at the Best Western Knoxville Suites. Not only did we book it once, but twice. We stayed on the way to and from Georgia. The first time we stayed there, we got our room and I was able to go and enjoy the hot tub by the pool. There was no one else swimming at that time. It was great.
Our room was great. As you walked into the room to the right was the bathroom. Straight ahead you first entered the “living room” section where there was a desk, couch and table. The television was over top of the refrigerator and could be turned to watch from either the couch or the bed. The large bed was on the other side of a half wall from the couch. This made it nice if we were to have any up to the room. I was also very impressed with all of the electrical outlets that were available to use. So many times there are two outlets and one or both are being used by a clock and/or lights. In this day and age you need all the electrical outlets you can get. I also appreciate having the second sink outside the bathroom. It makes it easier for two people to get ready at the same time.
After checking out the room and getting down to the hot tub, we stopped by the desk to make sure that our rewards number was with the reservation. After that was all set, I asked if we could have the same room for our next reservation, which was just a couple nights away. The gal at the desk assigned our room for our next reservation right then. We were only staying one night in GA and then would be back for two nights.
In the morning there were so many people in the breakfast area that we went across the parking lot to the Waffle House. It was super great to have options.
After our one night away, we returned to the hotel and we were able to get our same room. It’s always nice to have a familiar place to come back to. The staff was all very friendly. In fact, our first night back we went down to the hot tub and the lights were not on, but it was still pretty light out. As the sun went down, one of the employees came in and turned the lights on. I am assuming he did for liability reasons. Although, I was enjoying it getting darker.
I know that we will be returning to Knoxville for future visits and that we will stay at this hotel. I also highly recommend it to others.
