    « Great Stay »

    This was our 8th night on our trip and was the Best experience of the entire trip. The room was very clean and quiet The bed was very comfortable. The eldery lady at breakfast did an exceptional job of keeping the area clean and the items stocked for breakfast.

    « Excellent Value »

    The Best Western in Cookeville, TN has been a regular stop for us for many years when traveling to and from AR to visit family. It is a hotel that is being maintained well and it is a great value. I want a comfortable, clean place to stay when traveling and this fills that role very well.

    « Would not stay »

    This hotel's overall appearance was not very clean. It just seemed a dingy. The room was okay, however, there was a worm in the bathroom. There was a restaurant across the parking lot that I don't think was part of the hotel. It seemed that a lot of people who were not staying in the hotel were in the parking lot.

    « quiet motel near to hospital »

    The motel was easy to get to , right off rt 20- room was on the ground floor with plenty of parking. I had a problem with the key card which they promptly replaced. Our room was sizable with two queen sized beds--two sinks--large screen TV- sitting area with table The free breakfast was well supplied, staffed and good. The pool was inviting as the temperature was in the 90's Even with a busy restaurant next door the room and area was quiet. Our stay was 3 days for relative's heart surgery.

    « Great two night stay. »

    We stayed two nights and have no complaints. The breakfast had healthy offerings and a very nice lady to help. The room was large for a mid priced motel, I loved the sinks in the bathroom....yes two sinks. Had a micro and fridge, which is a plus for a multi night stay. The Mexican restaurant was very good...according to my husband, I was in class all day and didn't get to try it. We had to us the washer/dryer due to a mishap and it was very cheap. The check in was very smooth, like they were waiting just for us to arrive.

    « Owner does not care about his customers »

    Things went great until it was time to get things out to our vehicle and leave. My wife is disabled and the Disabled Parking spots were right in front of our room. As both were taken when we got to the hotel, I went out to move my vehicle so my wife could use the ramp and have an easier time to get into the truck. The parking lot was half empty at this time and when I go out I see a pickup truck parked across both Disabled Parking spots. As I confronted the person who owned the truck, I find out is was the owner of the motel. He was more worried about his staff leaving a door open on the second floor (they were still cleaning up there) than to at least leave one of the spots open. I will be posting a photo of his truck with plate on other social media. His not caring about those who stay in his place of business is what pushed me to give a rating of one. For I can not give a good rating when the owner has no care for his customers.

    « Nice place to stay »

    I've stayed at this hotel before and will definitely stay there again. This hotel is obviously well liked by a lot of people since always has a lot of guests. The breakfast offerings are very nice and the rooms are very comfortable.

    « Bright lights, big city »

    This place is a short distance from the interstate & it's kinda tucked in so it's easy to miss. Traffic on the street was only bad because people were were no keeping with the flow. There are several business that border this property so it's a busy area, in the evening at least. The hotel had their act together so everything was right. The icing on the cake was the microwaveable breakfast sandwiches added to the continental fare. The breakfast staff went above & beyond to assist. Parking was a bit tight, but adequate (there appeared to be some construction vehicles so that may have made it worse). Great stay.

    « Comfortable stay at a reasonable price »

    I had to come to town because my son, who attends TTU was having surgery. The staff was friendly and I was allowed a late check out so I could run back and forth from the hospital. The hotel is very convenient and quiet, even with all of the traffic from the restaurant next door. The rooms are spacious and comfortable.

    « Best customer service »

    A very convenient place to break Journey and have comfortable sleep. This place is almost on main highway. I was provided with excellent service and clean and comfortable room. Manager Paul is very considerate in listening and helping out for any request. Good free breakfast in the morning made me drive 500 miles to my destination without stopping for food.

    « A nice place to stay »

    I stayed here in the past. Always come back when I am in the area. Partial to BW. Nice room. Used the pool; very refreshing. All manner of places to eat along Jefferson. Great location. Staff is always nice and friendly.

    « Stayed one night »

    We were just passing through so only stayed one night. The hotel was very clean, bed was comfortable, and the room was very spacious! The man at the front desk when we checked in mentioned that he hadn't worked there for very long... he was dealing with a lady in front of us who's reservations had been messed up and he was very nice to her and very patient, and quickly got her problem fixed. When it was our turn to check in everything went smoothly and he was very nice and welcoming to us as well. The lady that worked the breakfast the next morning was also friendly and helpful. Would recommend this hotel.

    « Good price, good location »

    An old-fashioned motel (all outdoor entrances to rooms), outdoor pool at the edge of the parking lot. But the price was good AND they have a good Mexican restaurant on the premises -- right across from the Lobby, in the parking lot! THAT was worth the stay in itself. The motel: good staff, comfortable rooms, no noise problems even though it was about completely filled. Breakfast was typical "eh." Too bad the restaurant isn't open for breakfast!

    « Very Accomodating, Clean,Quiet & Friendly Service »

    Stayed again this year while visiting the 127 Yard Sale. Located just 25 minutes west of the Crossville exit. I needed a handicap room for a family member, ended up needing one additional night and they quickly changed their schedule and accommodated us. Bed and room was clean, quiet / nice. We will continue to reserve our room with them every year.

    « Cookeville Best Western »

    I stay in this hotel when in the area working on my property. The staff is always helpful. The rooms and beds are very good. Did have my air conditioner go out, but luckily there was another room three doors down to move me. Mexican restaurant on the premises is good. Many other restaurants in the neighborhood.

    « Good hotel but decor needs some work. »

    I have stayed in around 40 different hotels across the USA and I can tell you that decor really matters a lot and it does not need lot of investment from owners. This is good motel but very helpful staff and enough parking. Just if they can work on decor then this will be an amazing hotel.

    « Close to Freeway and Historic Downtown »

    I like to stay at Best Western and this was the last choice before Nashville. I'd figured with an extended name of "Thunderbird Motel" that it had been around a while. Close to the freeway and associated with a local Mexican restaurant. The room rate was $85.49 and with all taxes was $99.41(King, non-smoking). The room was a bit dated but very clean and quiet. The bathroom was "mid-century" and the tile looked like the my parent's bathroom. Again, everything worked and it was very clean and the room was quiet. Seemed like there was some overflow crowd from the restaurant, some beer cans and the result of an upset stomach in the parking lot near our car. The woman who checked us in (7/24/2016) was a real asset, very friendly and helpful about all to see and do in the town. She is the type of employee that makes one's visit enjoyable! The breakfast was the standard BW, and again the women who helped here was also very helpful and friendly. I would stay here again and do recommend it to travelers.

    « Holiday »

    I have stayed before and found excellent on both occasions and would use again in future. I used the outdoor pool on this trip and found clean. The rooms were cleaned daily, also the beds were changed daily.

    4
    « Sweet Suite »

    A last minute trip had us having to reserve a suite. It was very accommodating since we had to pack our food for the entire stay we were there. It was also more homier after a long day of travel to just hang out in the living room.

    « Featured Plus »

    The "El Tapito" is on this property location. I love Mexican food and this is one of the best ! Food was excellent and the prices are very reasonable. The next time I am in the area I will probably do the same thing all over.

    « Clean and comfortable »

    Stopped in Cookeville overnight and stayed here. Friendly staff. Clean comfortable room. Quiet motel for being on a busy business road. Decent sleeping bed. Average continental breakfast. Area was kept clean and stocked. Only problem is lack of parking. Restaurant next door seems to take alot of hotel parking. Will stay again when in the area.

    « Good night's rest »

    My husband and I stayed at the Best Western Thunderbird Motel as an almost halfway point to our destination. Paul, Front Desk, was great about getting us a first floor King room. We had a great night's sleep after our meal out in the same area. We left too early for the breakfast so cannot comment on that. We were allowed to check in a bit earlier so that was quite welcome as we were quite weary. The bed was comfortable, the room was clean, our neighbors next to & above us were quiet. We had reserved this type of room and with the Thunderbird earlier using our Southwest Rewards travel account. We will stay again as we were pleased with the Best Western Thunderbird Motel in Cookeville, TN.

    « Nice clean rooms for a great price! »

    Me and my family were traveling from South Carolina trying to get back home in Arkansas and we were looking around trying to find a nice clean hotel right off interstate I-40 and let me tell you this hotel did NOT disappoint! As we were hoping for, the hotel was literally just maybe half a mile right off I-40 and is right in the college town of Cookeville. I really first off enjoyed how easy it was to park as it was just the usual self-parking. Whenever we went inside we were greeted by a very nice lady at the front desk and it just took minutes for us to get our room key. We stayed on the second floor (there are only 2 floors) and it was really easy to get our bags and suitcases to the top floor. Whenever you walk in you have the nice air condition unit on your left and then the really nice queen beds beside each other. One thing we really enjoyed was the brand new Samsung 50 inch + T.V. . Another nice advantage to the room was it had double sink vanity (which you really hardly see these days.) The bathroom had a window and it was really nice as the shower was nice and deep so you could easily take a shower there. Whenever we sat on the beds they were very comfy and clean and we all had a good sleep that night. The room also had a fridge and microwave just below the T.V. with a coffee maker beside the sinks. Whenever we woke up in the morning we all went to go to the continental breakfast (which by the way is free like the free wifi too). The breakfast was good as it had cereal, bagels, waffles, etc. Overall we were all very impressed with the cleanliness of the hotel and pool. The hotel is located just minutes away from the Walmart, Dollar General, University, and all of the restaurants. I would highly recommend this hotel! It's definitely worth the money that you pay!

    « cross country tavel »

    This was a really nice Best Western. I am limited when I travel because I travel with my 100 pound dog. We were on our second 10 hour day to get to the beach and were very pleased with this place. It was on a busy street but the room was quiet. I was in the middle of the building on the second floor but I also never heard anyone on the other side of the room. The beds were comfortable and the air conditioner worked very well. I did not eat at the restaurant but it seemed packed when we arrived around 7:30. The people at the front desk at check in and check out were very friendly.

    5
    « Large rooms, great location & price! »

    We had the double queen room and there was plenty of floor space for a pack-n-play and a sleeping bag. Friendly staff, clean room, nice pool area, and a yummy Mexican place attached! Definitely would stay here again!

    « Good road trip hotel »

    We were lucky to find accommodations considering how few rooms were available around nashville. We secured 3 king suites. Each had great space, very clean and felt safe. There is at least 1 elevator. Because of the layout it is a LONG walk to and from the loby. The outdoor pool was nice. The pullout sofa bed was very uncomfortable (per my son who can sleep on almost anything. The free breakfast was yuck but there are a number of doughnut shops and restaurants next door.

    « Comfortable »

    Stopped here on the way home from.the coast. Had a suite which smelled really bad upon entering; however, once the air was on, the smell cleared up. Everything appeared to be clean, and check in was quick. Clerk was friendly.

    « Driving through Tennessee »

    We stopped here because of the good reviews. All I can say is that they were accurate. The price was more than fair, the rooms clean and spacious and the staff friendly. The best western is right off the highway and convenient to downtown. We will definitely stay here again. I highly recommend it.

    « Nice place to stop over during travels »

    Our room was clean and comfortable. The staff was friendly. There was a nice selection of delicious food for breakfast and the employee who was working in the breakfast area was quick and helpful. I forget the name, but the Mexican restaurant next door was great.

    « Well fitted out room »

    Stopped here for an overnight on way to Memphis. Picked purely due to past experiences of Best Westerns. Check-in was a bit slow due to a customer booking a block of rooms for staff of a construction company. The room was well fitted out with double hand basins, two suticase stands, iron and board, lots of towels, tv, microwave and fridge. Each table lamp had two electrical sockets. There was a pool which we did not use but looked clean. Several eateries were walkable inc. Longhorn Steakhouse which we dined at. There was a Mexican restaurant on the premises too. Inclusive breakfast was good with all the usual choices. Overall a pleasant overnight stay

    « Another very nice Best Western »

    Another very nice Best Western. The staff were very friendly and helpful. The staff made you feel welcomed and were more than happy to help with questions about the local area and directions. The breakfast was very good. The room was very clean. Overall, a nice place to stay. We would choose Best Western again.

    « Smoking »

    If you smoke you will like this hotel but I don't and so the smoke bothered me. The room was a non smoking but the smell was still very strong. The room was clean. The breakfast was really good. Good location.

    « Halfway Point to Charleston »

    We love this town this is our second year of stopping at Cookeville TN it is our first time at Best Western Thunderbird it is a very clean neat place to stay with plenty of places to eat very close to the hotel, and the price is right!! We will be back on our way through!!

    « Great value and location! »

    We stayed at this motel for two nights and everything was great. Check in was quick and easy. The girl that checked us in was friendly. The rooms are big and the room and bathroom were clean. We had a room with a king bed and it had two vanity sinks, which was nice. The shower was great with nice towels. The doors all face the parking lot, but the A/C unit is on that side of the room so it makes it quiet. We could not hear anything from either room next to us. The pool is across the parking lot, but is a nice area with lots of tables, chairs and lounge chairs and everything was clean. The breakfast was really good with a lot of choices, but the dining room does not have much seating. We ate at the Mexican restaurant that is attached to the property and it was delicious! There are also lots of other restaurants that are within walking distance or a short drive away, so the location can't be beat. All in all a great stay. I would stay there again.

    « Don't miss the BW Thunderbird »

    Very clean rooms and the pool area was great for our family of 20 to get together before our reunion. It is nice that they allow pets to stay. Nice, friendly staff and overall our experience was fantastic!

    « Not the best, not the worst »

    If looking for a place to stay on your way to somewhere else, this place will do. For my particular situation, it was not ideal. I was staying a week taking care of my granddaughter while my daughter attended professional training in Cookeville. (The town itself is a complete bore and that is saying a lot being as i am from a small town). The room keys were tempermental, sometimes worked...other times didn't. We had to walk a long ways to breakfast, which didn't offer hot foods. We stayed in a 2 queen "suite". The room layout and size were fine. The a/cs both worked very well, especially considering the oppressive heat of the week we were there. The carpeting however was filthy. Do not wear socks or they will be ruined nor go barefoot...as i can walk outside on my driveway and have cleaner feet than from this room (#135). I do not think it's the cleaning staffs fault though. I feel the type of travelers that mainly stay here is to blame. (Truckers, motorcyclists, construction workers), Even though most of the property is non smoking...you will deal with smokers outside. As this is an outside entrance property. Nice for convenience but not for cleanliness. The outdoor pool is a real positive...very large and clean. But some of the furniture could be replaced. As for staff, some were too nice...some were unfriendly.

    « Very clean bathroom and convenient off the highway »

    With parking right outside our door, this was an easy unload off the motorcycle. Very easy off the highway on the right hand side. Mexican restaurant on site. Clean and bright bathroom. Breakfast was very good and checkout was simple.

    « Incredible Value/Great Stopover »

    This was a Sunday stopover for my wife and me on a cross country drive to Utah. Early check in was accommodated by a friendly desk clerk. It took five minutes. The room was spotlessly clean, beds super comfortable, air conditioning worked well. Very quiet. Conveniently located within walking walking distance to several restaurants. Many others a five-minute drive away. It was very busy and seemed a popular motel for stopover travelers. I wanted to note also that the young man on duty Sunday evening had as much patience as I have seen from anyone in his position. While I was checking email at their computer, the desk clerk's printer ran out of ink and he was unable to print receipts for guests checking in. He patiently and politely explained to a long line of people waiting to check in that he was so new he wasn't sure how to get cartridges to change the ink. Meanwhile, he was fielding non-stop phone calls, taking reservations over the phone, etc. He never lost his cool. A gem of an employee! Great stay. We will be back.

    « Tennessee trip »

    We booked 2 rooms adjoining. Both were suites with two queen beds in each room, living room area. Very nice accommodations for the price. Breakfast is limited. Cereal. A few pastries, oatmeal etc. But for the price we were very happy. Looked like a nice outside pool but we didn't go out there to it. Lots of restaurants in area.

    « Cheap, clean, convenient »

    Stayed here on the way from SC to MO. Room was very clean, hotel pool was spotless, room was cheap and there was a good Mexican restaurant attached to the hotel. I'd stay here again. Good job guys, most other Best Westerns don't look this good!!

    « Good location »

    This is an older hotel, had a strange musty smell in room. Other customers staying seemed to be enjoying themselves. This was a quick overnight stop on the way to eastern TN. Probably wouldn't stay there again. Nothing horrible, nice double sink area, but just don't like smells in hotels.

    « What a great stay! »

    Front desk at late check in was setting up my room key when I walked in. Very friendly and I was able to be in my room in less that 5 minutes. At 12:30 at night that is wonderful! Our breakfast hostess treated our family of 4 just like family. It was busy but she opened the door for us to head back to our room with our breakfast and was so polite and cheerful. She is a superstar! There was not any meat available for breakfast but well stocked with other breakfast items. The rooms were the best I've seen at the price ever. Double sinks, wow! great sleeping too.

    « My god this place is clean »

    I wish whoever cleaned the bathroom tiles here would come clean my bathroom tiles at home. The whole place was a celebration of the custodial arts. The pool was great too. Highly recommended for a road weary stop over. (Here are the extra 200 characters tripadvisor requires to post this review.)

    « Great value at well maintained motel »

    We needed a stop-over en route to Asheville, NC and chose this primarily because of the excellent Tripadvisor rating and reviews. They were right on. This is a well maintained older property with exterior doors, but it was very quiet even on a Saturday night. The room had obviously been recently redecorated and was as nice as a new roadside hotel. And it was immaculate. An expanded continental breakfast is provided in the lobby with a very attentive attendant. Front desk staff couldn't have been nicer. Many restaurants surround the hotel. This is a great value...a winner!

    Our Hog Chapter is planning a trip in June & we had reserved 20 rooms here. My hubby & I did a pre-ride to check everything out before the trip, so we stayed here for the night.

    « Nice, clean motel at a reasonable price »

    We were headed from Charleston, SC to St. Louis, MO and were starting to get tired of driving and began looking for a hotel. I am glad we ended up at this motel. The Thunderbird offered us a large, clean room with a beautiful pink tile bathroom with double sinks and a great shower. The king size bed was comfortable and we got a great night's sleep after watching a little television on our big flat screen. The next morning we had a nice breakfast ( blueberry waffles, breakfast sandwiches, cereals, fruit, bagels and much more. I did not expect breakfast to be this good at a moderately priced motel, The staff was friendly and very efficient.

    « Good Spot for a Night »

    Traveling between Nashville and Asheville by back roads but this was right off I-40 where we were crossing. Very busy for a Monday night but they had a room on the ground floor. We were tired from a long day of sightseeing and this was great. They had a small Mexican Restaurant right next door-kind of attached. We gave it a try and it was good. A spot for locals from what we saw. Too much food for low cost. So a very good stay. Breakfast not great so we didn't partake.

    « Three night stay »

    We stayed in a 2 queen bed suite on the first floor for 3 nights. The room was very clean, the beds extremely comfortable. Having a separate living room area was perfect. The staff was helpful and extremely nice. Definitely would stay here again.

    « Outdated but clean »

    We stopped at this hotel after leaving Nashville late one night. It was cheap and we needed about 5 hours to lay our heads down. This hotel was very clean but very outdated. The beds however were super soft and comfortable. I wouldn't stay here for leisure, but for an overnight trip it was fine. Tons of restaurants right around the hotel as well.

    « Good Spot to Spend the Night »

    Great big parking lot and well lite, very friendly people at the front desk. The room was nice and clean, the bathroom sinks were nice but the rest was out dated the shower handle was falling of but it still did the job. The next morning we checked out and had breakfast which was very simple no bacon and eggs here. But was the perfect place for what we needed.

    « Good quick overnight stay »

    We were approaching the halfway point of a 15 hour trip and decided to stay in Cookeville. While my husband drove, I reviewed the hotels in the area (what did we do before smart phones!) and based on price and reviews we gave this a try. I am usually a hotel snob and I guess I didn't realize this was a motel and not a hotel. Until we rolled in around 10 pm. Didn't matter though. It did the trick. It was a clean, comfortable place to sleep and take showers before heading back on the road. It is an older hotel ( as was evident from the green tile in bathroom) but was CLEAN which was all that mattered to me. The carpet looked new. We had a nice soft king bed with 4 pillows. I slept great. The hubby said he was a bit cold (he was fine after he adjusted thermostat) but it was great for me. So the AC really works! It had a microwave, fridge, and nice tv. I loved the double sinks, long counter space and mirror outside of the shower/toilet area. This allowed me to get finish getting ready while hubby showered. Breakfast consisted of the usual coffee, Apple and orange juices, serving size cereals, yogurt, hard boiled eggs, microwaveable breakfast biscuits, a few pastries and bread for toast. They also had a waffle maker which we did not try on this trip. I had cereal. It was fine but I am used to the a hot breakfast of bacon and eggs and potatoes at a hotel. But again, it served its purpose of feeding us so we didn't have to stop and pay for breakfast elsewhere. The few negatives which prevented this from being 5 stars were there was no fan in bathroom so mirror got foggy while my hubby was in shower. The breakfast was just ok. The water in the sink drained slowly. The faucet on the tub looked like it was about to fall off but it worked fine considering this is an older hotel. Would I stay here again? You bet. Great bargain and served its purpose.

    « Nice Place »

    I have stayed here many times and have always been pleased. Staff is helpful and friendly and the location is superb. Many restaurants in walking distance and just of Interstate 40. I like the Mexican Restaurant on site. Fast internet and great breakfast. It's been my home away from home.

    « Nicely upgraded rooms »

    This hotel was the most reasonably priced hotel in Cookeville during our stay, so we were a little wary but there was limited availability that weekend. We were very pleasantly surprised that the rooms appeared to have been remodeled recently, as the carpets were fresh looking and the beds and pillows were very comfortable. The bathroom was also nice, without the telltale signs of age you find in most older hotel bathrooms. The breakfast was very average, but still it was free so can't really complain

    « Will stay here again! »

    This hotel was very comfortable and clean. The check in process was easy and we even got into our room early which was great. The beds were comfortable and the room very clean. It is a basic hotel with basic amenities, but I would not hesitate to stay here again. One of the big things I rate a room on is how the tub drains while taking a shower. This one was perfect. I also liked the fact the bathroom area was in its own little alcove area away from the view of the beds. Another great part of the bathroom area was a full wall vanity with double sinks. Great stay!!

    We were visiting the Red Bowling Springs area and came back through the Cookeville area and have stayed at this BW before and knew it was a good place to stay, restaurants in walking distance. Is an older motel but still kept update, would recommend, when traveling through Cookeville TN.

    Overall experience and condition of room was good. Nice value for the money. However, at checkout I informed the staff that the stopper did not work properly in the bathtub, and that there were holes in one of the bed sheets. While it wasn't a huge issue to us, I was surprised they clearly did NOT write this down or make note of it. Did not think this was very professional for future visitors.

    After several days of motels on the road, we've seen everything from "old and worn" to "just plain yucky and smelly." This is such a bright spot! Clean, quiet, professional courteous staff, and all those wonderful basic amenities you look for in a good motel and expect from Best Western. Site is easy to get to and within walking distance of lots of restaurants with everything from fast food to fine dining. You won't be disappointed in this one!

    I had to go to Lancing Tennessee on business, it's a small town in the middle of nowhere. I use Best Western as my hotel of choice. It was 61 miles from Lancing but it was on my way back to Memphis. Great Hotel, Good Restaurant connected to it . I would stay here again. I was sad to learn that Stovers had closed down.

    This is an average hotel - one of the biggest problems with this hotel is the access to the hotel it self.

This coupled with the fact the hotel shares a parking lot with a popular eatery in town depending on the time of day a customer of the hotel could have a problem in finding a place to park

    Upon checking in when I found out that our room was on the 2nd floor I asked if there were any available on the 1st floor, the man said no because of people extending their stay. He didn't offer whether it would or would not be a possibility to switch to 1st floor on the following night. ( Didn't seem too concerned about the situation. )

    Spent one night here before a college tour with my daughter. The front desk clerk was very nice and helpful upon check-in. The room was clean and comfortable, and a good value.

    We were looking for a place to stay that was nice but affordable. This fit the bill! Room was clean and spacious. Plenty of towels, which was a pleasant change from most hotels. Front desk check-in was efficient and nice. Coffee available all day/night in lobby. Was a bit concerned about breakfast based on some prior reviews, but happily these were unfounded. Oatmeal, yogurt, fresh fruit, hardboiled eggs, assortment of pastries, breakfast sandwiches you heated in microwave and fresh hot waffles you make yourself. Overall a great breakfast considering the price of the room. We would recommend this hotel to friends/family and would definitely stay here again.

    « Not impressed! »

    Booked this for a quick one-night stay passing through. It had good ratings.... It is a motel with doors to the exterior, crowded parking lot (restaurant on site). The room smelled stale and odd and the bathroom was the most outdated I have seen a a hotel in years.... Bed linens were not clean and there were various stains on the carpet and walls. There was one tiny shampoo for three people. The walls are thin and the noise from the parking lot, balcony, and neighbors was not pleasant. Price was reasonable but next time I would pay the extra 10-20 for the nicer hotel in the area with an indoor pool. I would not stay here again.

El Tapatio Mexican Restaurant is where it is happening in Cookeville, if you are looking for a fun dining experience(excellent food & drink), and be sure to ask for Vivian as your waitress. The motel room was large, clean, and most of all comfortable. And so was the King Bed we slept in. The staff were pleasantly friendly and professional.

    « Very good place, highly recommended »

    My mother, husband and I stayed here for one night on the way from Raleigh, NC to Texas, right after Thanksgiving. The room was very clean, and had a huge, long granite counter with DOUBLE SINKS, which was just great with three adults in the room. The room was wider than many motel rooms, which again was very handy, allowing us to put a luggage rack for my mother's very large suitcase at the bottom of one bed and still have plenty of room to pass by. We had a double queen room. The bed that my mother and I shared was softer than we liked (Room 117, bed closest to the window), but we managed OK. My husband's bed was fine. The room was well insulated inside, and when someone took a shower, you couldn't hear it at all. It was November and the pool was covered over, but it was a very large pool and looked like a great place for families traveling in warmer weather. There's an excellent Mexican restaurant directly across the driveway from the motel lobby, with very reasonable prices and cheap draft beer -- all great after a long day on the road. The continental breakfast wasn't as fancy as some, but did offer hard-boiled eggs (which I always look for) and whole pieces of fruit. I also noticed a cold case that looked like it had cold breakfast-type items that could be heated in the microwave on top of it. Front desk staff were well-trained and friendly. The room rate was very fair. Can't ask for much more about this place, we definitely recommend it.

    Thanksgiving week while visiting relatives "down home", we had the pleasure of staying at the BEST WESTERN Thunderbird Motel in Cookeville tn. The greeting was warm and friendly as soon as we approached the desk. The young lady had our reservation as we requested and check-in was swift. Our room, while not fancy, was clean, pleasant and well appointed including frig and microwave. While there was no restaurant on premise, many eateries are close by, even within walking distance. There was a breakfast nook offering enough selection to please most for a quick morning treat. I can find nothing negative to say about this well run property.

    « A Very Pleasant & Comfortable Stay »

    This reason I chose this property was due to the favorable reviews here on Trip Advisor. I didn't want to spend a lot of money, so I was pleased with a total of $81.24 for our one night stay. Check in was very quick and the desk clerk was very sweet and helpful. I was pleased when I walked into our room. Attractive and clean. Mattresses are firm and the sheets felt nice. Four pillows to a bed. It was very quiet until about 8:30 the next morning as people were packing up and leaving. Fridge & microwave really came in handy. Check out is 12pm but they were kind enough to extend ours to 1pm. Other reviewers were serious about the Mexican restaurant being across the parking lot.....you can hit it with a rock. Walked over last night for dinner. Nice atmosphere, good food, super friendly staff and very reasonable prices. Dinner for two came to $22.00. Property is in a good, safe location within walking distance of four or five restaurants and even a tattoo parlor. :) I would definitely return here.

    « Good room, greedy unappreciative owner »

    My wife and I stayed here 3 nights on a recent trip to Tennessee. We had reserved a king room. Upon arrival we were told that our king room was no where near the ONLY elevator on site and we would be forced to carry our luggage upstairs or take the elevator and walk almost the entire length of the hotel. Since my wife has an auto-immune disease that made both options impractical, I asked to change rooms. There were none to be had except a mini-suite and the owner in the hotel made ZERO effort to accommodate our request except to tell us we could have the room for extra money. We took it as it was late. The room was nice, the owner was not.

    I came up for the exotic animal auction, and then the next time stayed with a friend in her hotel which was not the Best Western.

    This is the cleanest hotel I've stayed in in a really long time. I was hesitant to stay because it is an older hotel and the lowest price of all the hotels in the area.

    I wanna start with saying I never write poor reviews and I will keep this Suttle because I don't believe in picking apart a business to hurt them...everyone needs customers to make a living. So let's start with the positives. The staff was nice and friendly. The maids did a good job they did the best they could with what they had to work with. Here is my problems with this hotel..."I stayed for 4 nights" the pillows were rediculous! I actually had to go to Walmart and buy a pillow because the ones provided were no joke the size of a decorative throw pillow and if you rolled over forget it. Next problem the linens, old. Granted they were white not yellowed or anything, had holes, we're so thin you could see through them and if you looked you could definitely see stains especially the shower curtain! Next, I got a non smoking room and every time I walked in it smelled smokey after looking at the walls there must have been 10 coats of thick paint on the wall to try to cover up this outdated hotel. The bathroom was certainly from the 70s but was clean minus the shower curtain. Ok I'm done with being anymore negative but if you ask me, someone who stays in hotels alot it looks like someone threw in new dresser drawers a flat screen TV and slapped some paint on the wall. The only reason I didn't leave was because 1 my company paid for my stay and I was so busy I didn't have to be there much, 2 the maids did their jobs and even though I had thin sheets with holes which is not their fault the bathroom and the sink were spotless every day and the front desk people were super nice.

    My daughter and her family stayed in a suite I arranged for them. They have 3 children. When it was time to put the children to bed they opened up the sofa bed to an awful smell and a urine soaked mattress and bedding! When reported, the front desk lady said they could not do anything about it that night and did not offer them another room. When asked for another room, they said they were full. Luckily, we (the parents) had a room with 2 queen size beds and were able to let 2 of the 3 kids sleep in our room. My daughter, her husband and the other child had to sleep in the stinky room.
