Clean room, great staff. Very polite and accommodating. We enjoyed being very close to the pool. Pool and whirlpool very clean. The food in bar was wonderful and the staff! Breakfast bar the next morning was terrific! The bacon is to die for! Trust us one of us is picking about bacon. We plan on doing this again soon!

I have no clue why this hotel rates so low. The free breakfast (coupons with check-in) was buffet style, the bed was large, firm, and clean. The shower was even had a functional massage head! The size of the room was larger than usual for this price-range. The king bed/sofa bed combo worked well for myself and two kids. My... More

I am so thankful The Clarion had a room available. We had car trouble on I-40 and had to have our van towed to the Honda dealership in Cookeville. We walked into the Clarion at 9:30 pm. The staff was courteous and helpful. We got 10% off (some promotional deal) so, the price for two queens was $67 a night!... More

We were passing thru going to Memphis and we needed a hotel for the night. We received a senior discount which made the stay even better. Lots of restaurants conveniently located in walking distance to the hotel. The breakfast bar at the hotel was plentiful and good. There is an inside and outside pool, meeting rooms, exercise room and on... More

Spent a few days here at the end of May. It was a really enjoyable stay. Room was clean and comfortable, and the breakfast buffet was great. Hotel and Kitchen staff was courteous and attentive, always with a smile on their face. Looking forward to coming back.

I've stayed an extended stay here. When I first checked in, rooms were less than satisfactory and service was sub par. During my stay, they got a new general manager, William Mattingly I believe was his name. The place has improved greatly. They now have the most helpful housekeeping staff I've seen yet. The young man that cleaned our rooms,... More

We were there for a fun night out. Nice pool area, lots of bars and restaurants around. Nice sports bar in hotel. We swam , ate, partied, then came home and had a nightcap and walked to our room. We got a senior discount, so the value of the hotel was great. And the breakfast bar was huge and well... More

This hotel was a pleasant surprise. The room was nice but it was the staff that made this a great overnight stay. The front desk called our room to see if everything was OK or if we needed anything. And had the best breakfast buffet we have ever seen in a hotel in this price range. While checking out we... More
