“RELAXING”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 March 2014

Took the wife on a little getaway just so I could spend some quality time with her. Our room was clean neat and comfortable. The towels and lines were extra comfy and the bed was comfortable. We will be back! Also close to interstate 40 and lots of restaurants. Great stay at a clean comfortable room at a great price!

stayed here overnite on our way to Myrtle Beach, S.C.. Good hotel Beds were comfy, to early in the season to try the outdoor pool, didn't look for a hot tub. Cookeville is a nice town good variety of places to eat.

I very much enjoyed my stay at the Thunderbird Motel, in Cookeville, TN. Very centrally located, easy check-in and -out, and an adequate free breakfast experience. The bed was comfortable and the stay was quite nice.

I got a late start out of town for our Mountain vacation with my grandson. So we decided to stop here for the evening to enjoy the view of the Smokey Mountains the next morning. I felt safe and the staff was extremely friendly. I was travelling with my 6 year old grandson. The room was very clean and comfortable. A great price too.

I booked this room online at Best Western.com received a great deal at only $55 a night plus tax non smoking king. Nice clean, spacious room. The beds and pillows are extremely comfortable and nice hot shower too! Breakfast was great, we just stayed 1 night but over all visit was wonderful!! Highly recommended, if we come this way again we will be staying here!

There was only one problem, I booked online ahead of time so it would make for easy check in. When we got to the hotel we waited 20 minutes to be checked in because there was someone in front of us that the check in lady was having issues getting them checked in. But once it was our turn it took no more than 5 minutes. Other than that wonderful stay.

We stay here several times a year because it is midway between our home in Missouri and our destination in South Carolina. We don't usually have the same room each time but every room we have stayed in is clean and comfortable. We use our AAA discount and find as far as comfort and value it would be hard to beat. We used to try and use the Drury Hotel brand but now look for Best Westerns.
