While checking in we tried to use a hotel coupon. Desk clerks only response, "It's no good this weekend" in a very unpleasant voice. I asked why and he did not respond. There were no other check ins waiting that he would be rushed. Once we got to our room, we realized we wouldn't be taking a shower, there was mold around the top of the shower, the tub and soap dishes had thick soap scum. The outlet by the coffee maker was filthy and the cover did not fit. The toilet seat was round on an oval toilet. There was a drawing on the door frame. The A/C was running but the room was "wet". The sheets were so damp that you couldn't even move your leg. The freezer hadn't been defrosted with approx 1/2 inch of ice build up. With the attitude we encountered on check in, we did not report any of this to the front desk. The saving grace was the kind, informative morning desk clerk at check out. She took notes of problems and hopefully they have been corrected, but I will still pass them by the next time we pass through TN.

Room Tip: Ask if you can inspect the room before you pay for it!

Dear Guest,

Thanks for your comments. I’m sorry that our desk clerk appeared rush to you when nothing could have been further from the truth. We always focus on dealing with the customer in front of us in the most courteous manner possible. I apologize that this perception clouded your view of the hotel and you could not be satisfied when so many others are. I hope you’ll try us again and see with new eyes how we satisfy hundreds every month.

Sincerely,
Hotel Manager

Everything at motel was good with the exception of the bed. It was hard on the back. It was not a pillow top as other motels have.

Dear Guest,

Thank for your comments. I’m glad you had a generally pleasant stay. While our beds are the same type used in many Days Inn and other hotels brands, I apologize if the bed you were provided didn’t meet your needs on that occasion. We take great pride in our hotel, and I’m genuinely sorry we could not satisfy you in this case.

Sincerely,
Hotel Manager

This hotel was near least expensive option in Cookeville area, with easy access to highway 40 and many nearby casual dining restaurants. But it shows its age too. The bathroom was really run down, and room carpets too showed much age. One of our towels was on the bathroom floor when we arrived and there appeared to be blood around the toilet, so housekeeping an issue. It was nice to have both mini-fridge and microwaves in room. Room coffee was bad tasting with no condiments, but the breakfast bar was clean and provided a number of options with good coffee. Bed was clean and comfortable. I was surprised to see regular water runoff to environment from under hotel when not raining.

Room Tip: Choosing a room away from the street side will help to reduce road noise

Dear Guest,

Thanks for your positive comments about our location and our free breakfast. I’m sorry if there was a housekeeping issue at the time of your stay and if you the furnishings didn’t completely meet your expectations. While this is an older hotel, it is well-maintained, frequently refreshed and carefully managed. I hope you will try us again. You can expect a better experience in the future.

Sincerely,
Hotel Manager
