“Great Place”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 28 October 2013

This is a great place. Clean. Beds were soooo comfortable!!! My brother got a smoking room and requested they call him if non smoking came available and they did! Excellent service. The only complaint is the breakfast room is extremely small for the amount of people staying there. Not to mention they have a sign and it says don't take food to room which is ridiculous. We didn't need to take it to our room but if needed I would have ignored the sign and did it anyway. Breakfast is over at 9am so we went in at 8:30 to beat the rush per advise of lady at desk. They were out of waffle mix....my brother let them know and she said breakfast is almost over. Ha! I really don't care if breakfast is almost over you should be feeding people until 9am. He had his waffles but he was just being curtious to the people next in line. I guess because he wasn't rude she finally did fix it, but stood there for ever. When we left she was very nice so maybe someone had given her a hard time or she was having a bad morning. We would definantly stay here again if we had to.

This place is a nice place to stay. From the registration to the check out the staff was very friendly. The breakfast was good. The room was sharp and clean. The bed very comfortable. This hotel is located in a very convenient place close to a mall and a lot of good restaurants. I'll be back to this city and I am planning to stay in this very nice hotel again.

Great place to stay. Clean, comfortable beds, big rooms. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Located close to a lot of attractions. We are planning on coming back to stay for several days not just one so we can explore the beautiful area.

For every visit to Cookeville, we use this Best Western, it is the most convenient, and the staff is exceptionally friendly and knowledgeable. The restaurant is superb, with a well trained and knowledgeable staff also.

This is a very old Best Western. It was late and my stop in Cookville was unexpected. A lot of the "normal hotels" I would have stayed at were full. The rate was low and that made me think that it was probably not going to be very nice. I checked in and they only had rooms on the second floor, I assumed that there wouldn't be an elevator in a small older "motel", but there was. The room was very clean and large and fairly recently renovated. I have now stayed there twice, once in a regular room and once in a suite, both were clean and nice. There is everything within walking distance of the hotel, shopping and all kinds of food. There is a really good Mexican restaurant attached to the hotel. I was there on a Friday night and this restaurant was a very popular place with locals. (Keep in mind that I am writing this review comparing this property to other hotels of its type and general price range) I would recommend this hotel to family and friends.

We are frequent Best Western guests and have stayed in them throughout the USA. Upon check in we were given doggie treats for our four legged family members, the room was great, it was conveniently located close to restaurants, and the price was outstanding!!! What a great find! If we travel in the Cookville area again, this will be our hotel of choice!
