“The best kind of throwback”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 16, 2013 via mobile

If you're expecting the Hilton, don't stay here . . . But this place is so much better than the Hilton in so many ways! The carpet is worn and the towels are thin (also the bathroom is mauve), but everything is spotless and the view is amazing! The location couldn't be more convenient! Literally, you turn in before you're off the exit ramp. The bed is incredibly comfortable and even in below freezing temperatures, I was able turn the heater off before going to sleep and still wake up warm the next morning. The room is super spacious and the price can't be beat!

Stayed here for a week as took care of business in town and Nashville which is not far away. The staff employees are all nice and friendly with you. They obey the do not disturbed sign if you hang it up and if you leave it up for few day and one of the employees see you walking around on the property they ask make sure everything is ok and if you need anything. My stay was very quiet and peacefully will stay again in the near future the room was very clean. This is the place to stay if you wanna feel like you are at home.

Room Tip: If looking for a nice quiet stay and friendly staff this is the place

My family has stayed at Alpine Lodge for many, many years while visiting family in the area. It was great to be back after four years. They remembered us - even the rooms we always reserve. They always make us feel welcome, offer a very clean, comfortable room, provide us breakfast. We get super beds, lots of space to entertain relatives at least one evening, and we sense a home away from home. The owners and staff remember us, our children, and take the time to catch up. They offer local advice and make us (and others who walk into the lobby) feel special - as if we are special guests. It is the only place we stay.

Room Tip: We like the first floor with a view of the pool.

The Alpine was a pleasant surprise indeed. Bad weather took me there the first time and I've been back many times since. Always, clean, friendly and a great rate. Its a non chain place where the owners and the staff really care about your stay. I even had the owner come into the lobby with a bag of tomatoes from her garden to give to customers. I'll go back!

Room Tip: You can go for a room with a mountain view or a pool view.

Discovered accidentally, this has become our go-to place between Norfolk and Nashville to switch gears. The staff is friendly and accommodating, breakfast is great (from 5-10, not 6-9 like others), extremely reasonable for vaulted ceilings, private balcony and mountain view. CLEAN and comfy. Will continue to stay here when I make the journey.

Room Tip: We like the balcony view over the mountains - in front.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 2, 2012

Have stayed at the Alpine several times. The first time it was because every place else in Cookeville seemed to be booked. The Alpine had an opening and it turned out to be quite adequate. We had a king sized bed with a good mattress, a couch, an additional chair, a small kitchen table with chairs, and a large jacuzzi. The room was clean, but the furnishings were a bit worn. The room was quiet, there was plenty of hot water, and the air conditioning worked fine. After that initial stay, have been back through Cookeville on several occasions and have stayed at the Alpine because it is a good value, not a national chain, and the owner and front desk help have always been cheerful. This is not the Ritz or even a Hampton Inn, but given the location and price, I will continue to go back. I am happy to support a locally owned business.

This place was exactly what we needed when we needed it! We were needing someplace clean to just stop for the night for a low price...and that's exactly what we got! The staff was extremely friendly, the room was very clean, and I found a coupon on their website, which made a great deal into an excellent deal. Would recommend this room and would revisit here again!
