3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

A pretty nice remodel of an older motel. My 2nd floor king room was clean, comfortable and quiet even though it faced towards the main parking lot and restaurant. Nothing great, but nothing bad either really and world's better than the adjoining hotel that I've stayed at in the past. Some better quality linens, bed pillows and bath towels would... More

The Best Western in Cookeville, TN has been a regular stop for us for many years when traveling to and from AR to visit family. It is a hotel that is being maintained well and it is a great value. I want a comfortable, clean place to stay when traveling and this fills that role very well.

This hotel's overall appearance was not very clean. It just seemed a dingy. The room was okay, however, there was a worm in the bathroom. There was a restaurant across the parking lot that I don't think was part of the hotel. It seemed that a lot of people who were not staying in the hotel were in the parking... More

Our room was sizable with two queen sized beds--two sinks--large screen TV- sitting area with table The free breakfast was well supplied, staffed and good. The... More

We stayed two nights and have no complaints. The breakfast had healthy offerings and a very nice lady to help. The room was large for a mid priced motel, I loved the sinks in the bathroom....yes two sinks. Had a micro and fridge, which is a plus for a multi night stay. The Mexican restaurant was very good...according to my... More

Things went great until it was time to get things out to our vehicle and leave. My wife is disabled and the Disabled Parking spots were right in front of our room. As both were taken when we got to the hotel, I went out to move my vehicle so my wife could use the ramp and have an easier... More

I've stayed at this hotel before and will definitely stay there again. This hotel is obviously well liked by a lot of people since always has a lot of guests. The breakfast offerings are very nice and the rooms are very comfortable.

This place is a short distance from the interstate & it's kinda tucked in so it's easy to miss. Traffic on the street was only bad because people were were no keeping with the flow. There are several business that border this property so it's a busy area, in the evening at least. The hotel had their act together so... More

I had to come to town because my son, who attends TTU was having surgery. The staff was friendly and I was allowed a late check out so I could run back and forth from the hospital. The hotel is very convenient and quiet, even with all of the traffic from the restaurant next door. The rooms are spacious and... More
