We spent one night here on a drive from FL to MD. Overall the room was slightly better than average for a HIX. It had a decent sized bathroom, reasonably good beds, and a fridge and microwave in the room. The condition of the entire property is very good. The breakfast was okay, but a little below the average of...

We were traveling cross-country and we needed a room for the night. We always try to find and stay at a Holiday Inn Express. We were pleased as usual. The staff was friendly, the room was clean & spacious and we had a great night's sleep.

My husband and I have friends in the area. We had really busy day and needed a comfortable place for the night. This motel met all our expectations. The room temperature was easy to control, the beds were comfortable. There was a nice refrigerator in the room. We will stay there again.

This was a modern, clean hotel with a large room. It is a typical holiday Inn Express with breakfast, a pool, whirlpool and fitness center. Location was great and easy to find. My only complaint is that the Fitness center did not have any free weights, was small and the treadmill was poor. If you are in the area Mayfield's...

My wife and I were on a long drive from North to Deep South, and we booked a hotel pretty much right between Knoxville and Chattanooga. This hotel is just off Exit 49 on Route 75. Our room with a King-size bed is spacious, and the bed and the pillows were comfortable. The desk area also has a plenty of...

We were planning to drive another 150 miles before stopping for the night. However, due to bad weather, we had to find the very next place to stay. And since we are members of the IHG club, we were looking for Holiday Inn Express. This was an excellent choice. It is just off I-75. The check-in process was very quick....

Great staff, clean rooms! Location is perfect for exploring eastern Tenn. The pool area was very nice. Much larger than most hotels. Clean and plenty of natural light. Perfect way to end a long day of exploring. Only issue we had was with parking, the lot was completely filled the first two nights we were there. Many of the vehicles...
