We were evacuated from Gatlinburg, TN on 11/28 due to the wildfires that eventually engulfed the town. We drove straight to Knoxville that night and checked into the Holiday Inn World's Fair Park property located right in the heart of town. We were provided a "special rate" due to our evacuation status and had the privilege of staying at this...

We traveled 4 hours to Knoxville for the weekend in order for the kids to enjoy the Jurassic Quest show at the convention center next door. The dinosaur show was horrible - the cheapest, cheesiest event I've been to in a long time. The weekend would have been ruined if it weren't for our fun stay at the Holiday Inn!...

This hotel is located off of the highway in downtown Knoxville. There are plenty eating areas at Market Street to which the hotel will shuttle. Staff is very friendly. Rooms are clean. The restaurant on site has good food and a breakfast buffet. I registered my room with breakfast because you get a better deal. Side note: There is construction...
