“Comfort”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2014

We like to stay here because it is a nice hotel at a reasonable price. There is a restaurant on the premises and a breakfast buffet. There are also many restaurants nearby. We make many trips between Missouri and South Carolina and enjoy staying here.

We stayed the night here on our way to our final destination. The staff is extremely friendly and courteous. The room we stayed in was very clean and in excellent order. The beds were comfortable. Would definitely recommend.

Since I have been here several times in the last few years and this will be my third review, that explains the title. Everything was pretty much the same as it has been. Since the weather was cold the heat worked just fine. The bed was comfortable as usual. It has some things I don't use such as the microwave and refrigerator. The water pressure in the shower was just right. I will be staying there again.

We always stay at the Best Western Thunderbird Inn because we know we will be treated like guests in a special friend's house. We enjoy the well-appointed room, the convenience of coffee at any time, but most of all, we appreciate the welcome from the owners and from Milly, the assistant manager, whose's smile brightens our entire stay, We come back twice each year as we visit friends/family in the area.

Conveniently located right off the freeway. Rooms were clean, but seemed a bit old. Lobby clean & friendly staff. Our only negative comment would be about the breakfast. The hard boiled eggs were old...not edible. Disappointed with breakfast.

4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 27, 2013

Pros: Fantastic price! This BW is a classic-style motel with exterior rooms; my king room was on the ground floor so I parked right outside my door. The room is a good size with a work desk, comfortable chair with ottoman (and side table), flat-screen TV, and fridge/microwave. A double sink! (not necessary since I'm traveling solo, but would be handy for a couple) The bed was comfortable and the room was very clean. I don't know how full the motel was that night, but I didn't hear outside noises. Breakfast is free and fresh coffee is available all day. You're close to all the traveler-oriented businesses in Cookeville (translation: gas stations and chain restaurants).

Cons: There are a couple drawbacks to the location. The motel includes a popular Tex-Mex restaurant so there's a lot of foot traffic and extra car traffic during dinner hours. I couldn't even get into the (only) entrance to the motel on my first try because it was blocked with cars idling outside the restaurant; also be alert for margarita-enhanced people in the parking area. The motel is on the northbound side of Jefferson Avenue; not a problem when you're coming from the interstate, but good luck making the left turn back onto Jefferson Avenue to get back to the interstate.

Unfortunately management can't change the location issues, but they've done an excellent job with everything else. If TripAdvisor allowed half-stars, I'd give this BW 4.5 stars.
