Very average

The room was adequate. The morning breakfast was quite good. The negative side is that my room had some sort of odor, like mustiness that just didn't go away. I awoke several times in the night absorbing this unpleasant odor.

everything was great but the service staff

Posted Apr 15, 2014 on Hotels.com
We decided to take an impromptu over night trip. We had a very nice room the bed was great and nice quality the bathroom was clean. We planned to sleep late so put our do not disturb sign out and locked the door at 8 am house keeping barged in our room ( the top latch didn't hold for some reason) without knocking or anything. There was no apology or anything from staff. We weren't even able to sleep after that. Very disappointed with that. Breakfast was nice.

Thanks for taking the time to review us. We have talked to the front desk and reiterated to them the importance of suggesting suites when folks have 5 people. The suites afford you more room and additional sleeping space. We realize that at times the room where we serve our free hot breakfast does get crowded. That is why we offer 3 1/2 hours daily for breakfast, to hopefully take care of some of that crowding. Thanks again and we hope to be able to serve you again in the future.

Very disappointing.

We have stayed at a number of Country Inn & Suites by Carlson in other locations and have been very satisfied. That was not that case at the Knoxville I-75 North location. The room was not clean and had a foul smell. Wallpaper was coming off the wall. The room itself was cramped. We discourage you from using this location.

Basic stay

Posted Mar 3, 2014
Cons: Breakfast was below normal for chain standards. You better like sausage and gravy.
Just OK. Good location. Nothing special. The place is aging a bit. Parking is very tight. Staff was friendly. A quiet place.

Nice stop-over hotel

Posted Feb 25, 2014
Pros: Quiet comfortable room.
Cons: We did not try the breakfast because we are gluten intolerant and most places cannot accommodate this.
Location: Do not know. We just stayed overnight on our way back home.
We were coming back from Florida and Knoxville was our interim destination. We wanted to be north of the city to avoid morning rush hour. We have stayed at Country Inn and Suites before and were pleased. All was as expected. Comfortable quiet room and comfortable bed. Had microwave and refrigerator as we liked.

I guess gets the job done.

This place is basically OK. My one complaint would be paper thin walls. Got a couple of 20 something dudes in the room next to us and it was pretty loud until about 12:30 am.
