Everyone should check the Great Smoky Mountains off their bucket list, and we make it a little easier at our Knoxville hotel with luxury bedding and competitive prices.

From the events at Neyland Stadium to the Turkey Creek Shopping Center, there’s something for the whole family, whether someone’s an outdoor lover or prefers a day of shopping to hiking.

We offer a spacious room size perfect for families or guests who prefer a little more space. Just ten minutes from downtown Knoxville and with easy access to restaurants and attractions, we’re conveniently located but still far enough away from the hustle and bustle of downtown so that guests can relax. With easy on/off interstate access, our Knoxville hotel puts the comfort of guests first.

University of Tennessee football is a big reason why many of our guests choose our Knoxville hotel. However, the Knoxville Zoo is a must when visiting the area. From the head of the Tennessee River to outdoor Knoxville where hiking trails, kayaking and biking reign supreme, the possibilities are endless.

Business travelers often choose our Knoxville hotel because of the convenience and quiet rooms. Some of our frequent guests include employees of Oak Ridge National Labs, the Department of Energy (DOE), Department of Defense (DOD), Scripps, Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), and Jewelry Television. Even if you’re here for business, it’s easy to squeeze in some time for a visit to the Alex Haley Farm, the Museum of Appalachia, or the Mabry Hazen House.

Plan a trip to the American Museum of Science and Energy, East Tennessee Historical Society, take in a women’s basketball game or visit James White’s Fort. The history and culture is rich here.
