Good 6.0
The staff was very friendly and the rooms were nice and clean. The downside was the noise from the street below & people walking past your windows at night. Also, the price was too high for what it was.

Better Elsewhere - To Expensive
Most expensive Hotel we stayed in throughout USA and possibly the worst room. Hotel is old and needs refreshing. Staff were unwelcoming and only just did their job (which wasn't very good with no smiles etc). Tourist information was very sketchy and directions given were normally incorrect. WIFI IS USELESS!! They claim it works fine but we rarely could connect and if we did, it would drop out. Every other place in Nashville ie pubs, museums etc had good wifi that worked. Even there own business room computers struggled to stay on line. Definitely would not recommend as there are better hotels elsewhere.

Nashville - a must stay city
Easy walking distance to the music venues & museums. It was an old style motel with an open veranda access to the rooms - which dated its overall appearance; but it was clean & comfortable. The bar was great to close out our evening; the bartender excellent. Breakfast was great; down on the green side - all throw away cutlery & crockery. Ann the hostess at breakfast made us feel really welcome.

Great hotel close to downtown
We have stayed here 3 times, all with different hotel branding. The staff especially Alisa & Gwen were wonderful and very helpful. The newly renovated entry , bar & gym/guest laundry are excellent. The rooms are clean & well equipped. A great place to stay.

Very basic hotel, rooms were small but clean. Free breakfast was great as there was a good selection of items available. The aircon in the room was very noisy, also, the street noise woke us up through the night. About a 10 minute walk to get to restaurants.
