Mainstay Suites, Knoxville
Worst Hotel Ever!
This hotel was horrible! The first room keys didn’t work, the AC in the room didn’t work, second room AC worked, but there were cigarette holes in the bedspread, there appeared to be mold or mildew in the bath, and the silverware in the kitchen was dirty. The only thing this hotel offered was the ability to take your pet. There was even a panhandler in the parking lot when we arrived. I want a refund!!!

Good place to stay
It was a great stay. Clean, well kept, very friendly staff. My only issue was I had requested a non-smoking room, and was put in a smoking room. It had an ashtray in it. But even though it was a smoking room, at least it did not wreak of smoke.

weekend getaway
Location was good. Quality of our room was poor. We had a non-smoking room, but the linen (sheets and comforter) had burn holes in them and stains on the bed skirt. Room size was good though and it was nice having a porch. Bathroom could have been updated as well. Luckily we weren't at the hotel much.
