Mini Hotel Tour of the Hampton Inn in West Knoxville, TN
This is a very nice Hampton. Thank you to the front desk staff for giving me the neat gifts. This Hampton was booked up at the time of our visit so we didn't get a room tour but the front desk staff did give us a key that would get us into the business, fitness centers. They have an outdoor pool which we showed from the window as it was kind of rainy off and on the day we visited. This Hampton has 2 buildings which the one building has the neat scenic Dover elevator which can be seen in the video at this link West Knoxville Hampton Scenic Dover Elevator and then the main lobby elevators (ThyssenKrupp) are shown in this mini hotel tour video. For more info on this Hampton, check out their FB Page at Hampton Inn Knoxville Cedar Bluff2013-11-22 19:58:20

Otis Elevator at the River Place Inn Condos?
Question mark is because we don't what condos or hotel this is as there was no name at all anywhere on the particular building. There was a building across the street that was on the parkway called River Place Inn Condos so this could be part of that or it could be another building of River Place Condos although it is basically on another lot of land.2013-11-17 00:50:17

Otis Elevator at the Riverside Tower in Pigeon Forge, TN
I was going through my files today and saw this one at Riverside. I thought I had already uploaded this one for some reason but it was still in the need to upload file instead of already uploaded file so I did a search on my videos and didn't see it so I guess I was mistaken about thinking it was one I already uploaded. There are a lot of hotels in Pigeon Forge with the name River in them. :)2013-11-14 23:14:13

This was a very nice room and the one we stayed at for most of our fall break in October in Pigeon Forge on Teaster Lane.

Old Dover or Otis Modded at River Edge Motor Lodge in Gatlinburg, TN
I believe this used to be a Dover but has since been modded. There was no floor indicator except for the fixtures. This was the building right near Oak Square.

Scenic Thyssenkrupp Elevators at Bass Pro Shop in Kodak, Tennessee
This was a very neat Bass Pro Shops. We stopped here on our way back to Pigeon Forge from a day in Knoxville exploring the Hampton Inns. There is a very nice restaurant inside of this BPS called Uncle Buck's Grill which we decided to eat at as we were about to go looking for a good place to eat after this stop.

National Elevators at the Inn on the River in Pigeon Forge, TN
This used to be a Hampton Inn on the River years ago. There are 2 buildings connected together by the pool area in the middle (it was that way when it was a Hampton too) and the 2nd elevator has more of a motor on it than the first one. We actually stayed here when it was a Hampton back when I was much younger.2013-10-25 05:29:54

This Hampton Inn has just recently been renovated. Special thanks to Elizabeth Bellows for letting us tour suite 228. You really need to see the bathroom in this suite! One of the biggest I have seen in a Hampton. :) We also take a ride on the Dover elevators. We actually had filmed these before with Cannycart and Dieselducy but I think we had issues with the camera card or something and didn't really get a full video of the ride so we decided to go ahead and do a retake on these great elevators.2013-09-22 00:54:26

For ChrisVideos: Otis Elevator at Hampton Inn Tunnel Road in Asheville, NC
This was taken back this past August when I met up with my Aunt Brenda, Uncle Wendell&my Pop-Pop on one their overnight stops from Fayetteville, NC back to Utah. They haven't had a chance to see my elevator dedication plaque yet so this was a good chance to do that&to spend some time with them. I wasn't really planning on uploading this video for YT but just have it for my personal videos but YT User ChrisVideos requested another video of this particular elevator so here it is. I also added a bonus clip of me with Reggie working behind the desk and a little saying we came up with.... Hope you enjoy it.2013-09-18 19:50:33

Requested Video Footage of Hampton Inn Greensboro, NC Coliseum Area
I got an email from a lady named Heather. She wanted to know if I had any more footage of the Hampton Inn in Greensboro, NC near the coliseum area. We did. These video clips features some of the outside views at night, the fitness center, guest laundry & some of the pool plus the room we stayed in. Heather, I hope you enjoy this video. Most of this footage was taken by mom at night so there's no talking during the tour except for guest laundry segment. In that section you can hear the GM talking about the Maytag Machines. I thought about adding dialogue to the other segments but decided sometimes a video can speak for itself so that's the route I went with for this version. This is the same hotel that I did a hotel tour with BCElevators this past summer. It is ranked #2 out of 74 hotels in Greensboro on Trip Advisor.

Here is the link to that one if you are interested in a flashback to the year 2010 - Flashback 2010 Video2013-09-11 02:12:46

Mini Squad Car Tour of a 1964 Ford Galaxy in Mayberry, NC
One of the highlights of this past weekend. We took a day trip up to Mount Airy with my grandparents & we got a free mini squad car tour as it was about closing time when we got to Wally's Gas Station & the Mayberry Courthouse. Special thanks to our tour guide for taking the time to give us a mini ride and for letting us see inside the Courthouse building. :) I really enjoyed it & it was fun pretending to be Barney talking on the phone. I hope you enjoy the video. For more info on the Squad Car Tours, check out their website at tourmayberry.com. To see more pictures we took on a previous visit to Mayberry Courthouse Village area, you can view my other video at Previous Mayberry Visit.2013-09-09 19:34:49

Face Timing with EMS318 at Hampton Inn in Cornelius, NC (Lake Norman)
It was great to face time with ems318 while taking a mini hotel tour at one of my favorite Hamptons. This is the Hampton that had "We love having you here, TJ" on the outside sign and I went on a full hotel tour with the staff and Travis Dancy of Visit Lake Norman. I have also been able to come up and work behind the desk at this Hampton on several occasions, even been part of the General Manager's Receptions a couple of times as well as helping to clean the pool. :) You can go to my FB page at www.facebook.com/tjelevatorfan and look at the photos that we have of this Hampton. Be sure to check out EMS318 YT Channel & FB Page if you haven't done so before. He's got some great videos. :)2013-09-08 09:04:16

Tour of Suite 222 at the Hampton Inn in Pikeville, Kentucky
This was one of the stops on our list when we went to Kentucky for the day from West Virginia. Mom wanted to go to Butcher Holler to see the birthplace of country singer Loretta Lynn and since Pikeville wasn't too far away from that, we decided that this could be our next stop after Butcher Holler. I'm really glad we did make the trip to Pikeville as this was a neat Hampton Inn to explore. This Hampton has the Trip Advisor Certificate of Excellence 2013 award & is ranked #1 of the hotels in Pikeville. The staff welcomed us in the nicest way. They were more than happy to let us tour this suite and gave us a bag filled with bottled water for the trip back to Huntington, WV where we were staying for the night. :) You can check my playlist of videos from Kentucky to see the elevator video of this Hampton plus the Butcher Holler videos.

Hampton Inn Col Alto in Historic Lexington, Virginia Full Hotel Tour
The main part of this Hampton is located in the 1827 restored manor house that had been built for Virginia's Governor James McDowell. We got to tour the room named for him which by the way was the only room we got to tour as the hotel was pretty much sold out due to a couple of wedding parties staying there. In addition to the rooms like the Mcdowell in the historic manor, this Hampton Inn does offer regular Hampton room types in the added on section of the hotel. :) For more info on this hotel, check out their FB page at Hampton Inn Col Alto Lexington, VA Facebook Page or their website at Hampton Inn Col Alto Lexington, VA Website. You can also check out my fb page for pictures we took at www.facebook.com/tjelevatorfan. Here's the full hotel tour of this beautiful historic Hampton Inn including business center, fitness center and outdoor pool and room tour of the McDowell Room #1 in the historic manor (in case you missed seeing the sneak peek video of that) and also the elevator ride :) I hope you enjoy this video. I had a great time exploring this one. Special thanks to Mr. George (the GM) for our stand up picture of the historic manor.2013-08-26 21:27:01

Let's Take a Ride on the Market Parking Garage in Roanoke, Virginia
This is one of the elevators I rode with Dieselducy&TheElevatorChannel along with Joel from the Roanoke Times but mom&dad were off to the side talking with Ralph (from the Roanoke Times) so they didn't ride it with us&I forgot to film it as they had both of our cameras so I don't have any video footage of that particular ride but I have to say I really enjoyed it. :) This video clip was taken on Sunday afternoon before we left Roanoke, we stopped back by so dad&I could get an HD Retake of this "famous" parking garage after the different floors paint job she got awhile back. :)2013-08-16 07:44:50

A Very Special THANK YOU to Hampton Inn in Salem, Virginia
A special THANKS to Lynn LaDuke & her Hampton Team for the Balloon Goodies Basket that was waiting in our room when we checked in and for making our stay one that we won't forget!

We took lots of video and pictures of that place also. Below are the links to the photo albums on my FB page of this Hampton & Virginia Museum of Transportation. We will get Mill Mt. Zoo on our next trip as we didn't get up there to enjoy that this time. Thanks again to GM Blane and Front Desk Manager Lynn for everything. My family & I really appreciate all of you!

Celebrating Dieselducy's Birthday at O'Charley's with The Elevator Channel&Me
We had a great day celebrating Dieselducy's birthday with some elevator filming downtown Roanoke at Center in the Square&The Roanoke Times building along with taking a break at Macado's to get something to eat before heading on to Lynchburg to film more elevators. We ended the day at O'Charley's for dinner and that's where I presented Dieselducy with his present that I picked out for him (mom&dad bought him his dinner for their present to him) which I was hoping he didn't have one of these particular locks. :) The last 2 photos in photo slide show are ones from Dieselducy's camera.2013-08-14 21:58:00

Sheridan Livery Inn Lexington VA
We went up to Historic Lexington, VA on Saturday and this is the place we stopped at to have lunch and ended up getting a room tour of one of the rooms at the Inn. :) Sadly no elevator just stairs but still very nice place with great food. Most of the people were eating outside but we had been walking around some at Washington & Lee University, so we opted for the indoor dining room which was real nice.
