This place is the biggest dump I have ever stayed in. The walls were stained, the room reeked of chemicals, it had exposed plumbing, I could feel the springs in the mattress, and I had to kill BUGS in the room (and in my BED). It was very dirty. I spent about $40 for one night, and this place was...

Two words: deferred maintenance. Stayed here two different nights in two different rooms. Rotting baseboards in bathroom, exposed plumbing. I expect a toilet to have a lid--that is not too much to ask. Everything very dingy; walls and ceilings in poor repair and dirty. (Hoteliers: do not install high gloss woodgrain floor tile in your bathrooms even if you got...

Can't say that I expected much, but for the price and the fact that this family run interstate-side motel is American owned I figured what the heck? Quick check in, room under $40 (which is unheard of these days), had a greasy little country restaurant serving breakfast but not horrible either. Like I said, I didn't expect much, but the...

We moved to Cookeville a few monthes ago and needed somewhere to stay while our home was being finished. We found the Star Motor Inn and were blown away by the rooms. We've stayed at hotels costing 3 times more with rooms not any better than the room we had at the Star. The owner was nice and friendly, The...

This is a great small hotel. I read the last review and was appalled at the horrible things said about this hotel. My company has been using the Star Motor Inn for several years, and never have we been better treated and received a better value for our road construction company crews. We have stayed over 1250 room nights here,...

My husband and I stayed at the Star Motor Inn on September 25th on our way to get married in Gatlinburg. We stayed there based on the advice of 2 previous reviews, and what a dissapointment! The carpet was clean, but in need of replacement in a bad way. The jacuzzi tub that we so desperately wanted after driving all...

I am in tennessee under contract and the Star Motor Inn was my first choice due to price. However in paying less I have had to put up with many things here. First, Roaches, and other bugs. 2nd, Nothing works right. from the AC Units, to the Bath Tub, the fridge freezes anything in it, including soft drinks. Worse the...

If my home had to be a hotel, this would be the hotel for me. From the comfortable atmosphere, to the intriguing conversations in the lobby that seem to last lifetimes, there is nothing that one can not love about this hotel. It has been said that personality is not a tangible thing, this hotel proves otherwise. The owner has...

As a Welshman on his first visit to America, I chose Tennessee and one of my stops was at the Star Inn. Quite simply, it was the one of the best places I stayed at (with some motels at double the fee). Friendly, clean, good food and a great bar. The staff were excellent and I would recommend this place...
