Located near the Knoxville Museum of Art and the Knoxville Zoo, this Holiday Inn is also near Neyland Stadium. Plus, Dollywood and the Great Smoky Mountains are only about 30 minutes away. After a day of visiting the zoo animals or exploring the town, families can head back to the hotel and spend some quality time by the heated indoor mineral pool. The kids can swim and play while the adults can relax and unwind on the surrounding pool deck chairs. There is no need to leave any four legged family members at home either because this hotel is pet friendly. Pets are welcome for an additional nightly fee. The comfortable guestrooms and suites feature a king or two double beds, a mini-fridge, microwave, coffee maker and flat screen television. Cribs, rollaway beds and a connecting rooms are all available upon request. Complimentary Wi-Fi access is a great way for both kids and adults to stay connected to home, work and school. Families will love to start each morning with the free hot breakfast buffet that includes items like the Holiday Inn’s signature cinnamon roll

Average hotel. Courteous and friendly staff. Nice doors to room and bathroom. Room decor and furniture was very plain and simple. Bed was very comfortable, but made creaking noise every time I moved in bed. Adequate electronics outlets. Two blinds on window—one privacy and one complete blackout shade. With shades down, it looks like nighttime in middle of the day. High water pressure in shower, but inadequate pressure at sink. Very, very bright mirror in bathroom, with no separate switch if you want just the overhead light on. Large LG tv, microwave and refrigerator. Tiny lobby and very small breakfast dining area with lower quality furnishings. Breakfast was better than many Holiday Inn Express hotels. Luggage carts were really ridiculous With no bottom, and not designed to carry several pieces of luggage. (See photo). You have to carefully balance on the cart and reload several times as you go to the room—because it will not stay on.

Came through for the night pretty late and tired. The lady at the front desk was great. We got to our room and it smelled pretty musty so I blasted the A/C before bed hoping that would do the trick. I should have asked for another room but we had showered and changed. Big mistake I couldn’t sleep well at all. I only saw one elevator in the lobby and had to walk up the stairs with our luggage because there was a large group of people going to their rooms. After 3 full elevators went up and down and there were at least two more full elevators worth of people there we decided to walk. Breakfast was decent and it was in a safe location. The room was the luck of the draw but that’s why I gave my stay only 3 stars.
