Due to an illness in the family, and a subsequent smelly car, we had to unexpectedly stop in Cookeville for a rest. We decided to stay at the Candlewood Suites because they were one of the few hotels in town with an indoor pool and I needed a way to entertain my healthy child. The hotel was fairly new and appeared clean and modern. It seemed like a lot of the occupants were there for the long term. The rooms appeared like they were designed for this and included a full size refrigerator, a microwave, and cabinets. There was also a “lending locker” near the lobby which had kitchen supplies available. My only complaint was that they only had 2 cribs and they were already lended out, so it was a rough night of sleep for the little one.
