We booked 2 rooms for our family. Both were very clean and affordable. The pool was awesome and the kids loved it. The beds were nice, rooms were spacious. The breakfast buffet was delicious. Yes, the hotel is a little dated but that was okay with us. The only negative was that there was only one person at the front... More

Very convenient to the Interstate and to "Restaurant Row." The place is clean, reasonably priced and the beds are comfortable. Every member of the staff has been friendly, courteous and helpful. All team members seem genuinely interested in making one's stay an enjoyable experience. Smiling faces on everyone from housekeeping, maintenance, desk clerks and upper management. Even the manager at... More

The front desk staff here was very friendly, especially the woman who appeared to be a manager. the room was clean, which was all we were looking for - so long as the room, beds, fridge and bathroom are clean, I'm fine. we did not use the pool, as my son won't swim in a pool that is less than...

I've stayed at a few other hotels in Cookeville and on my list, I put this hotel in the lower third for the places I've stayed at in Cookeville. Positives 1. Near the interstate. 2. Indoor outdoor pool. 3 Restaurant and "game" room in the lobby. Considerations 1. The hotel is sort of awkward to get into and out of... More

Clean and nice Room, very comfortable beds, down pillows, I was quite pleased overall. It's not a brand new hotel, so don't expect a New York high rise. Good parking, great location near all the restaurants. Free WIFI. The pool is actually indoor and outdoor, but only goes to 4 feet deep (mostly a pool for the kids with a... More

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
