Only a short drive from downtown Knoxville and the University of Tennessee, this hotel is also not far from the Knoxville Zoo and the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. There is no need to leave any four legged family members at home when staying at this hotel because it is pet friendly. Pets are welcome at no additional charge but some restrictions may apply. After a day of traveling or touring the town, families can spend some quality at the outdoor pool. The kids can swim and play while the adults can lounge and relax on the pool deck chairs. The guestrooms and suites feature a mini-fridge, microwave, flat screen television and a coffee maker. Complimentary Wi-Fi access can be found throughout the hotel, making it convenient for both kids and adults to stay connected to work, home and school while visiting Knoxville. Families will love to kick start each morning with the free, hot Bright Side breakfast that offers items like eggs, waffles, hot and cold cereal, fruit, yogurt, juices, coffee and more. Free parking and a fitness center are also available here.

Nice hotel with a great place to walk your pup. The staff was friendly and the hotel is very clean. The breakfast was better than average. My only complaint is that they continue to use styrofoam dishes instead of a cardboard product; not green at all.
We stayed one night to visit with friends who were house hunting. We liked being off the main drag and the hotel was easy to get into downtown Knoxville. Everything was clean and comfortable. Staff was efficient and welcoming.
