“Motel is a joke”
Reviewed 11 August 2005

Staff was rude and unhelpful. Room was not clean, and the beds (mattress ) was worn out. Outside doors were duct taped so that the could be opened with out key card. They are trying to improve the motel some, but I would reccommend to them to not be black topping the parking lots all night with bright lights blaring into peoples rooms.

Cookeville is a cute little town, but I think one could do better than the Holiday Inn. I guess I got a teensy bit of a deal on Priceline at $50 a night (the website starts at $62), but hey, I was suprised that a itty bitty town like Cookeville had ANY offerings on Priceline. It appears to only have one hotel row so choices are limited!

The Holiday Inn itself is just what the name brings to mind- a big ol sprawling property from the 50s or 60s, with outside entrances and big glass window-walls like sliding patio doors. The lobby is lounge lizard opulence, with a fountain and an indoor outdoor pool, hot tub (well, luke warm tub) and ping pong tables. The rooms are old, kind of tired, and not very well lit so it is difficult to know exactly how clean they might or might not be. The entrances were difficult, to get to my second floor room I had to go up an outside stair, thru a card key door, go down an inside hallway, then back outside thru yet another card key door, and finally down an exterior corridor to my room. As it was raining at the time, it seemed like a huge pain in the booty.

The thing I most enjoyed about my stay was that the hotel had an agreement with a very nice gym (right next to the KMart) where I was able to work out for free. For me, that was the single silver lining on the Holiday Inn cloud.
