“Good value for the money”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 19, 2009

I stayed here at a very busy time in Clarksville for my husband's return to the United States from a deployment. There was also a convention at the time and available hotel rooms were limited.

The Good: The room was MUCH cheaper than where I usually stay in Clarksville (Hampton Inn/Holiday Inn Express), and the room was MUCH larger. There are cheaper rates online and I was automatically upgraded to a king suite when I checked in. All of the rooms in this hotel are junior or king suites. This room would be great for a family traveling together, as there is a living area for children to play & could watch TV on their own while parents watched something else. Additionally, it had a kitchenette area with a countertop, microwave, fridge and I think it may have had a sink (I can't remember 100% at the moment, I didn't use it). Everything else about the room was standard, in my opinion.

The Not-So-Good: You need a cord to connect to the internet, but can get it from the front desk. Appliances are older, but working. The room smelled like it might have been a smoking room in the past, but it didn't really bother me. It has outside corridors, but that is true for almost all the hotels/motels in Clarksville.

Overall, I would recommend this for a no-frills room. It was safe and quiet, but not too fancy.

Friendly check in. Room seemed clean, but the furniture is ratty. Holes in the couch looked like from just normal wear and tear. Need to reupholstry or buy some new stuff ! One pkg coffee in the room with 2 cup coffee maker.. if you put two cups of water in it, is watered down.. need more coffee in the individual bags or more bags in the room.

This place is not up to the standard that I would expect in a Best Western lodging facility.
The hotel description on the internet states "Help yourself to our fitness center" - there was no fitness center. That was one of the deciding factors in making our reservation there, my wife likes to exercise when we travel.
The 'breakfast' consisted of a few bagels and some cereal. No selection at all. I don't expect a gourmet meal but some choices would be nice.
The in-room coffee consisted of a packet of regular coffee and one package of condiments. Every other place that we have stayed puts out regular and decaf, plus at least 2 condiment packs. Since we both drink decaf we had to go to the lobby for coffee.
We visit this area at least once a year, but will not stay in this place again.

I stayed at this hotel for 1 evening while traveling from Florida to Nebraska for the holidays. The outside of the property appeared to be fine. They have 24 hour survellience cameras on the property, the police station was next door and a fire station was apparently just a blk the other direction. The room was clean and quiet, but the pillows and all bedding is in serious need of replacement. The wool blanket on the bed was old, knotted and rough feel and the bedspread was thin with stains and a couple small holes in it.... also in need of replacement. The bathroom towels were VERY skimpy!! I couldn't believe how thin they were and they only give you 2 sets of towels...which consisted of the larger bath towel, a hand towel and washcloth. All of which were extremely thin!!! There are several hotels, gas stations and restaurants in this area. The only reason I stayed there was because I travel with a cat and this hotel was 1 of 2 that were reasonably priced and didn't charge an arm and leg for the pet. The Holiday Inn wanted to charge me $50 for the pet fee!! PLEASE! Would stay here again, if I had to....but if I had other opportunities, I'd certainly check out another place in the area.

  • Liked — They allowed pets and most in this area did not.
  • Disliked — Was a non-smoking room, but smelt horribly of smoke the second I opened the door!!

We arrived around midnight. You could not enter the lobby. You go through the first set of double doors and then there is a window that you can communicate with the person working the desk. The person was a bit confused and took quite a while to book the room.

The room was very clean but bathroom was old. It had a microwave, refrigerator and coffee maker. Towels are very skimpy.

Breakfast was served and consisted of cereal, lender-like bagels, cream cheese, sweet rolls, coffee, juice and milk. A free newspaper was available in the lobby.

This room is as nice as can be expected for the price. And for spending the night on the road it was absolutely fine and I would stay there again.

  • Liked — Clean with easy access from the expressway; safe location
  • Disliked — breakfast, bathroom old

I stayed here a few years ago, and the property was in great condition. I stay at the BW in Clarksville, TN over the weekend and I was really disappointed. The rooms use to have 2 t.v.'s in them and now there is only one in an odd place. The continental breakfast was definitely lacking hot items.Wasn't what it use to be. I would not say it was completely run down but it wasn't as nice as it use to be.

This hotel is adaquate but not one extra anywhere. Room was clean but not spotless. Our room had three thin towels, two wash cloths and two face towels although we had reserved for three people. Soap in the shower but not on the sink. Shower was clean but the caulk was molded. Thin shower curtain stuck to you when you showered. Continental breakfast was offered but only the bare minimum: two dry cereal options, banannas, only one milk.(no indication if whole or 2%), two types of donuts, white bread, white bagels, or white english muffins. Coffee but no half and half. Orange juice that ran out and was refilled even though server came by and checked on food. Butter and two types of jelly packets and a single large slab of cream cheese sat out but not under the sneeze cover. Overall, not a bad place but just nothing to make you want to come back. This explains why it was the value in the area.

  • Liked — Double had queens
