I had to pull out the bedside tables to look for a place to plug in our C-PAP machines. Yuck! It was so nasty & hadn't been vacuumed in a long time. There was a huge burn on the bedspread and the bed slopped to the middle badly. Kind of a creepy atmosphere overall.

This will be the 6th time we have stayed at this Inn over the past 3 years. We come into Cookeville 2 to 3 times a year from Missouri to see family. We have always been satisfied with rooms dye to the cheap price, but this time we felt we overpaid. Let's start with the huge patch on the wall... More

Just what I wanted! Comfy, cheap, clean, convenient. Was taking child to university. Needed overnight place. Close to college and interstate plus restaurants. It was quiet on second floor room. Non smoking room. No smells of mold mildew pets or smokers. Slept great. Plan to stay there regularly for next four years. Breakfast could be improved with oranges or apples.... More

We frequently travel by car between Texas and VA, and that means a stay overnight in Tennessee off I-40 somewhere. Since our target price is about $50/night, we have stayed in some pretty unimpressive places. I was nervous to stay at a non-chain motel, but a family member booked online for me while I was driving and said it looked... More

Second time staying here (for the Smithville Jamboree)..much cheaper than anything near Smithville and not all that far.. I beg to differ with another reviewer..There is a fantastic pancake restaurant not 1/2 mile from here..Grandma's Pancake House..they even have real crepes!... Also, Crawdaddy's near downtown Cookeville has excellent cajun food. The desk clerk was very friendly and helpful..I will stay... More

Comfortable, quiet, fairly clean spot with ample-sized rooms, friendly service, good wifi, lots of cable tv stations. It's a mile or so I-40, where the rest of the hotels in Cookeville are located, but there's nothing particularly desirable about the location -- no appealing restaurants or other points of interest nearby. Breakfast is perfunctory, nothing tempting or out of the... More

If you are simply looking for a clean, cheap place to sleep, this place will satisfy. Note that the decor is old and the free breakfast is spartan. If you are looking for a hotel that is very pleasant to stay while awake, pay more and look elsewhere.

If your not real picky and want the best price in town...then this is the place. Good Location, not on the interstate...which was fine for us since we were not traveling through. We asked for a non smoking, king bed room on the first floor so we could park in front of our room. The only one they had was... More

Staff is very nice. Non smoking rooms are covered with spray to disguise the smell....but it doesn't. Stinky room and cigarette butts all over the grounds. Rooms are old. This is like Motel 6 with a different name. Continental Bkfst ok but only room for 4 people to eat at 2 small tables. Sign asks you to not take food... More

Our vehicle broke down on the way to Pigeon Forge and found this room on priceline/booking.com. While it was not discounted off the rack rate it was $41ish. Room was not special, but clean. Shower was hot and had plenty pressure. Free breakfast was chocolate donuts, cereal, small muffins, juice and coffee. No one stood over us to see how... More
