Clarion Inn Cookeville

2.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

hotel is old and probably in need of a major renovation, but for the price its what you would expect. Bed was fine and the room was clean. Stains on the carpet indicate need for renovation.

Friendly staff. Hotel lobby was beautifully decorated for Christmas. It has a lot of nice amenities for families to use. The room was spacious and clean and comfortable. We just stayed there so we could visit our granddaughter.

reasonably priced/easy quick in and out - All clean bathroom & bedroom plus comfortable bed/pillows/sheets all good - NO (overwhelming deodorizor coverup for lack of cleanliness room was clean and fresh). Air conditioner worked adequately....We will be seeking out other Clarions during our travels.

The bathroom had a big de humidifier in the middle of it. Mold at the base of the vanity. Bed and pillows were awful.

Attending a funeral, asked for a little time after check out, was rushed and was given five minutes to be out of room at 11:30. Dust in dining room above my table. Children running in front desk area to pool. Front desk clerk not too friendly during check out. Hotel looked older than picture on line. Not worth moner. Daughter stayed at other motel across the street, better hotel, less money.

I originally booked a double queen room, but there were none available when we checked in so we got a sofa pull-out bed with a king room. This was fine, but made the room feel cramped. The swimming pool was the best thing about this hotel. The arcade games were mostly broken except for the claw machine. The staff was friendly. The hotel itself seemed old and musty like it could use fresh paint or deep cleaning. Overall it was a decent stay for a decent price.

Spent a very pleasant evening at this hotel, our third visit there.

The common areas of the hotel were very clean and modern. The staff was extreeemly friendly. Our first assigned room had a inoperative toilet and when we reported it to the desk we were upgraded to a nicer room without delay. The room was spacious with a very comfortable bed and plenty of soft pillows. The free wifi worked very well and the shower was like standing in a hot waterfall. The breakfast bar was plentiful compared to some others I havce seen and for $4.95 it was a great value. The food was almost as good as the service.

This "hotel" is basically a converted motel. The inner rooms open to an atrium with a pool and arcade and all manner of fancy stuff you would expect in a proper hotel. Still, the rooms on the one side are just old motel rooms. 1/2 still open outside of the 'hotel.' Lots of renovation. The inner area is all new with fancy marble floors and new furniture, pool, etc. Its very nice. The rooms however, have some new things like TVs and dressers and desks. But the tub and sink and chairs and carpet are all old and look old. Even stained. Shower is stained, and carpet and chair were both stained and ratty. Comforter was dirty. The "exercise" room only has treadmills. The breakfast that should be free and is the same as what you get free at other hotels is $5. I could stay here again at this price. I think its better than others in this range. But its really borderline. If they clean up the room it will be a superior value. At this price I intended to be below my comfort level. It served well for a 1 night stay.

Hotel was fine overall. Just average though. The room had a light "odor" that was not pleasant. The breakfast bar was not all that great either. Overly expensive for level of service.

My wife and I stayed for only one night, but we had such a fantastic time. it was just what we needed.

We chose this hotel as a short get-away. Were very disappointed with the overall experience. Not at all what we were expecting for the price.

I found the staff very courteous, room was very clean, breakfast buffet was wonderful. I would definitely stay at the Clarion again
