“No Complaints but it wasn't exceptional”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 18, 2013

Hotel was nice, no real complaints, but it wasn't anything extra special either. Had a pool and spa, nice breakfast, but not exceptional, room was clean. We had a "suite" which included a sitting area. Good value for the money.

Room Tip: Pay the extra for the suite. Worth the $10 for the extra space.

Wow, we hotwired this hotel and as soon as my daughter and I entered the lobby we felt something.strange. Nice hotel, clean rooms, great staff, but something not right. We had booked 3 rooms and all night we kept hearing some kid running up and down the rooms above us. We finally went down and talked to the desk and the desk clerk said that lots of weird things happen at night and she thought it was strange and now was a little scared to work the 3rd shift. After that the running stopped and I had my granddaughter in the shower. I hear a big thud and she starts crying saying that someone pushed her down in the shower.

Ok, now i am a lttle freaked out but we are so tired that we all go to bed around 9:00 p.m. everyone sleeps like a log. At 6:00 a.m. I get a knock on the door and it is the night manger (someone new) and she starts off with "I am sorry to bother you, but the man below you called and said he could not sleep all night as some kid was making loud noices and running in your room all night"

Anyone else had a wierd things happen there?

This is a really nice property. Not so easy to find as the turn onto Wade Circle is under a bridge...who would expect. The staff was outstanding in every way. Very friendly and hospitable. Loved the fresh baked cookies always available. Breakfast was typical for an included meal. But the food was all fresh and a staff member watched diligently and ALWAYS washed the tables right after a guest left. My room on the 3rd floor was directly under the air conditioner on the roof. Noisy all night. Really took away from an otherwise well kept, clean and most comfortable room. Would most definitely stay again. Just in a room at the far side of the building.

We stayed at this property when it first opened in 2009. It looked and felt the same when we returned almost 4 years later. It is super clean! The rooms are very comfy and well laid out AND the cookies are great! But, the staff,...especially Gary, made us feel right at home again. Thanks for all you do!!! We also had great service from Al and Brit,....and the rest of the employees (sorry, don't we know all your names). We will definitely be coming back to this hotel when we visit family, friends and beautiful Tennessee again!! The location is just right, off I-65, close to everything!

I was very impressed by this hotel on our family trip south. The rooms were clean and cozy. I was especially pleased with the friendliness of the breakfast staff. They made driving 11 hours with two little ones seem a little less daunting.
I wish all people loved their jobs like they did!

I took my wife here on Christmas Eve for a special night. The staff was very nice I wasn't supposed to use a coupon for the night we was there but the lady at the desk let me. They also require a 100 dollar deposit if u pay in cash but she said not to worry coz I was kinda upset I really wanted the night to b special. She was awesome and the rooms were clean and amazing. We stayed in one in cookeville tn that was under renovation but they still accommodated their guest. It was quiet and the breakfast the next morning was very good. I'd stay here again anytime and I highly recommend this hotel....

We booked a Country Inn & Suites room because we thought it was one of the nicest chains available. However, the last two times have disappointed us. The reason we booked this hotel was because it had a hot tub (spa) and indoor pool. It's hard to find these amenities in the south.

We had driven for 11 hours through snow and icy roads (at home in Michigan) to get there. Upon check-in, we saw a note taped to the reception desk that said the Spa was closed. We asked the clerk and she told us it had to be inspected after having maintenance done on it. We were highly disappointed. We booked a hotel with a hot tub because we were traveling so long.

This is not the first Country Inn & Suites that has closed their Spa without informing the guests before they arrived. We booked this room several months in advance. The hotel should have e-mailed, called or snail-mailed us this information and given us the opportunity to cancel if we chose to do so.

After saying all that, I do have to tell you that the clerk was very accommodating - upgrading our room to a King suite with Jacuzzi in the room and discounting the rate.

The room was clean and comfortable, as we've found almost all the Country Inn & Suites to be. The only other hotel in this chain that was sub-standard (to say the least) was the one in Lebanon, TN. It was disgusting and a little scarry! The manager there was not in a mood to help or listen much.

The hotel sits up on a hill close to the highway, but you can't hear the traffic. Very easy to get to.
The carpeting in this hotel - Goodlettsville, TN - was outdated, but clean. Funny story: when we filled the Jacuzzi with water and turned on the jets, they sprayed totally out of the tub, hitting the walls and covering the tile floor! Apparently, the jets were turned upward - probably when the tub was cleaned. The Jacuzzi was nice and totally needed.

Would we stay here again? Sure ... but we would call and ask if the Spa was open first.
