“Great place, non chain , friendly , I'll go back”
Reviewed November 8, 2012

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.

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!

The customer service at this hotel could not be better, everyone was so friendly!!! We stayed in a 3 queen bed suite and it was a very large room that had a couch, recliner, microwave and mini fridge. The couch and chair looked kinda yucky and we did not use them and we took the comforters and blankets off the beds because they looked kinda dingy with cigarette holes in the blankets. The building we were in did not have rooms with a balcony which we were kinda hoping for but we did have a good view of the mountains and it was very quiet in the building we were in. We were told that the little mexican place adjacent to the hotel was a very good place for dinner and i have to agree i liked the food there! They have a good size swimming pool but the patio furniture defiantly needs to be updated. I would stay here again for the price we paid for the huge room we had.

We found this hotel via a coupon booklet at a rest stop and called to learn more about it. The recepitonist was very friendly and helpful in answering our concerns. Upon arriving 2 hours later, we found the hotel in an excellent and easy to find location, just off the interstate. It appeared to have been quite deluxe in its day (probably 1970's), but is dated now. However, that didn't take away from the friendly staff. We chose a suite to have a whirlpool bathtub, which worked very well. However, the suite also had a pull-out sofa for which we asked at the front desk for linens and was denied because "house-keeping" was gone for the day. We also asked for another set of towels, as there were four in our party and only three towels in the room. This request was easliy and quickly accommodated. The suite was clean and cooled down very quickly after activating the air-conditioner. The beds were comfortable but the decore very dated. The two sinks (one in the bathroom and the other in the sleeping area) were an added convenience. The pool was large and clean, but required using your shower towel, as no others were provided. The contential breakfast was adequate (lacking yogurt and fruit) but did provide a staff made Belgium waffle to accompany its pasteries and oatmeal/grits packets. We would not be afraid to stay here again if ever in the area.

Room Tip: We looked at both a regular room and the suite. Fot the additional $10, the suite was well worth th...

We had to travel to Cookeville for a wedding, so needed lodging for two nights. Most of the places in town were either too costly, already booked, or both. Found the Alpine Lodge & Suites online, read the reviews, and decided to take a chance.

After ten hours on the road, it was easy to find and the staff was friendly and welcoming. True, the A/C in the room wasn't on, and it was hot, but it cooled down by the time we had the car unloaded. The room was clean and comfortable, the continental breakfast was more than enough, and we were able to borrow a hair dryer when needed.

So, overall, it was a nice place to stay, at a very affordable price.
