Very happy with my stay at the Cookeville Best Western. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I was very pleased with the appearance of the room and the comfort of the bed. I felt right at home. I will be reterning to Cookeville in October and will definitely be staying a the Best Western

We almost always stay at Best Western and this one was good... older facility but clean and easy to find. Good breakfast; quiet during the night; and good bathroom/shower facilities. Check in was very easy and friendly.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel this past weekend and it was very comfortable and the staff were really helpful. My reservation got mixed up through Travelocity and I ended up with a smoking room but wanted a non-smoking one. They switched it for me with no problems. The room was very roomy and the bed was very... More

The Internet is incredibly extremely slow! The in-room wiring to the TV is very touchy and often causes the picture to pixelate. The rooms are a nice size and the outside is clean. It is located 0.7 miles from the Interstate and therefore has easy access to it.

We stayed at the Best Western Thunderbird Motel in Cookeville, Tennessee on our way back to Missouri from visiting our granddaughters in South Carolina. We were cheerfully greeted by Angie at the check in desk and without reservations we still had a nice room in about 5 minutes. The room was clean and comfortable with twin queen beds. The bed...

The staff were great at this facility! They assisted me with information about the local area. They were very courteous with the breakfast that we had and the food was very decent and filling. Location was nice and convenient. We were here for a family get together. Will definitely recommend to others. Thank you!

Traveling with pets can be challenging, so review is for those who do. Only two rooms for pets on ground floor and both are double queens. OK grassy area for your fur babies, but this place is busy, so chances are you will meet other guests on your way to and from. They will charge you extra for the pet,... More

Our room was spacious and clean, no odor. The double sink vanity had to be at least six feet long! Superb!! Check in was easy and quick. This motel is close to everything, i.e. churches, shopping, restaurants, and Cookeville Regional Hospital (where my husband had his continuing education hours). Motel is easily accessed from the I-40. Another feature we liked... More

Close to a lot of the local attractions. Convenient access from I-40. Beautiful area. Hotel staff were more than great, not to say extremely friendly. Very clean. Excellent Hotel. Definitely will stay again.

Nice sized clean rooms. Traveled east in TN and ended up here after seeing reviews on TA. Check in was quick, room was good sized, clean and odor free. We didn't have any noise problems and got a good night's sleep. Did not partake in their breakfast.
