We got stuck in Knoxville when we had engine problems. The staff at the Red Roof #743 were friendly, helpful and very professional. The hotel allowed us to keep our cats with us in the room. And there is a very nice Greenway trail right outside the front door. Thank you all very much.

Needed a place for one night on business. This was reasonably priced, Older style, clean, and friendly staff. Not really a place for taking a family because of the business setting, not much to do with the kids.
