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 each room. I can't remember the last time I had 2 big windows, facing east and west, in a motel. We had two queen beds, very comfortable. Everything was clean, the room was quiet, the convector worked well & without noise, the shower was great, and we had nice views from each window with plenty of light. The front desk staff were helpful and the woman who checked us in moved us from the first room, which looked out on a wall on one side. We were in the part of the hotel that has 3 stories and there's an elevator there, so no lugging bags up the stairs. We were pleased with the exterior corridor which enabled us to leave the door slightly open to get fresh air (windows were sealed as in most other hotels in Tennessee). Breakfast was ok, but no oatmeal except in flavored packets. My husband said the waffle pancakes were the best he's had at any motel, and he has tried it everywhere; better than the regular waffles or the regular pancakes served elsewhere. We were really pleased with this hotel and hope we can get one of these excellent rooms the next time we visit Cookeville. less
