HOTEL’S FAVOURITE REVIEW
Reviewed 2 weeks ago

We debated whether to stay at the Best Western or one of the other chains. When our other choice would not match the price on their own website, we decided to try the Best Western, and we are so glad we did. We got a true suite: 2 separate rooms, with a door in between and nice big windows in...

I usually stay a maximum of 7 nights when I go up to TN for work. The Best Western has always had a friendly staff, the rooms are clean and I can pretty much walk to everything. The pool is a little weird, being in the middle of the parking lot, where everyone going into the restaurant right there looks...

The hotel rooms themselves are fine. Staff is rude and not helpful at all. Hopefully you don't have a specia request, because they will not care nor be helpful in your situation. I will never stay here again. LaQuinta Inn in Cookeville will get my business. I had other family stay there and the staff and service is exceptional.

The Best Western Thunderbird Motel is a nice, older, well-maintained motel for the value. The staff are very courteous and attentive. There is also a very good Mexican restaurant attached to the motel!

Convenient, great location, clean room and comfortable beds. The bathroom was dated with pink and white tile, mismatched with yellow paint. But the shower was hot and everything was in good working order.

This motel has excellent military discount. Kudos for that. The suite I stayed in was one of the nicest suites I've ever stayed in. It had more accommodations then I needed. I would definitely stay there again.
