"We stopped at the Holiday Inn Express on our way to Nashville after being in the car for 9 hours. Just off the highway, this hotel was perfect! We were greeted by Georgia in a bright, clean lobby & thankfully they had vacancy. They have a pool which is just off to the left when entering & looked nice. The room had 2 queen beds and was very clean. The beds were the most comfortable bed I’ve ever slept in & the sign in the room said they are new. The bathroom was stocked with towels that were the right combo of scratchy & fluffy. C.O.Bigelow hand soap, lotion, shampoo, conditioner & body wash was available in the shower & the water pressure was very good. We were going to check out the pool but there were a few older gentleman in the pool area, fully clothed, drinking beer which made our teen cousin a bit uncomfortable so we skipped that. Harmless, I’m sure. Earlier in the night there was a family in there swimming and it looked like they were having a great time. Breakfast is complimentary from 6am - 10 am and was fantastic as well. There was a refrigerator stocked with yogurt, hard boiled eggs, milk, butter, etc. they had biscuits, sausage gravy, turkey sausage, scrambled eggs, a make your own pancake station, cinnamon buns and 3 kinds of cereal. There was also a selection of breads, bagels, muffins and oatmeal. On the wall hung “on the go” bags so that guests could take their breakfast to go if needed. How great! Overall, I would highly recommend this hotel. Great nights rest, delicious & plentiful breakfast, safe, bright and clean. Photos of breakfast attached. Didn’t get a chance to photo the room before we messed it up. "
"We stayed here when we attended a game at the University of Tennessee. Every one was helpful and polite. The hotel offers game shuttles to the stadium for $20/person. Loved not having to do the 20 minute drive and find parking! The hotel was super clean and spacious. Even though it's close to the interstate it was very quiet and dark. Great window coverings to keep out the parking lot lights and the rising sun. There are a few restaurants in the area too. We had dinner at Aubreys, which is right across the street. Great bar area, and separate dining room. Perfect stay all around!"
"The hotel and grounds are well maintained. The lobby, hall, and room decor are modern, colorful, and tasteful. Our room carried that theme with a stylish bathroom featuring a lighted mirror frame over the vanity counter. Furnished with a microwave and fridge. Breakfast was well organized and maintained and included biscuits and gravy, omelet, scrambled eggs, sausage, and fruit. It also provided my first encounter with “robot pancakes,” made with the push of a button. Interesting but not very good. I was more impressed with real half and half in a carafe which you rarely see. Overall a little better quality breakfast than some chains. I’m still disappointed that few chains make any effort to RECYCLE the masses of waste created."
