My husband & I (and sometimes our cat, Smidgen) stay at the Alpine Lodge & Suites whenever we travel from Richmond, VA to Hot Springs Village Arkansas & back. We've always stayed in one of the lower level rooms facing Hwy 70N / E. Spring Street and enjoy being able to sit out on the room's porch when the weather is nice.
In the 5 or 6 years we've been staying here, our room has always been clean and well kept up; at least as well as higher priced hotels and usually better. With this review I'm submitting a few pictures of areas that tend to get grungy first so you can see the level of upkeep.
I believe their salt water pool filtration system was supposed to be completely installed by the end of June 2012 and I'm looking forward to taking a swim there in July.
If you stop over here, be sure to try out the new Mexican Restaurant just a few steps down the hill. Very friendly folks, very reasonable prices and serving sizes, and (we thought) very tasty food.
And there's a nice little park with wooded trails across Hwy 70N to stretch your legs in before or after dinner.
I still have to say that the continental breakfast isn't really great. It's what keeps me from giving Alpine Lodge & Suites 5 stars. The coffee's hot though and the fruit is usually good. Sadly, I can't speak for the cereal and waffles since I have to have gluten free, but my husband's never complained so they must be ok.
Next time you're 'bout ready to end your day's travel and you're near Cookeville, TN, try this place out. I don't think you'll be disappointed!
