Lounge and dinning

It's said it had a lounge and dinning, but didn't have either. I wouldn't have stayed there.

Great location, average hotel

Stayed for 3 nights in June. The location was fantastic - we could easily walk to all of the sights (Ryman, Hall of Fame, etc.). The hotel seemed older and could use some renovation but the rooms were good sized and clean, and the beds were okay. The elevator was small and creaked but ran well. Didn't eat the complimentary breakfast so can't comment on that. The front desk staff and valet were all friendly and outstanding in the service they offered.

The backstage tour of the Ryman was fun and very informative. It cost extra, but standing on the stage to have a picture taken was a true delight to this country music fan.

Weekend Away

When we first got there we wondered what we got ourselves into. It could use a lot of updating and the outside entrance made us feel unsafe. However we were in our room so little that we ended up not minding it. It's not as close to downtown as it leads you to believe. You can walk downtown but you have to walk back up a hill that is not fun at 1:00 in the morning. :) I thought it was going to be an easier walk than it was but we didn't do it too many times so it was nice to have the option. The staff was very friendly and the breakfast was really good.

Best Western Nashville

Staff was very nice, easy walk to town. Had breakfast on all floors which was very convenient, also had a Quick mart attached to the lobby which was very convenient. Seven dollar cab ride to Broadway (including tip). Charged $17.00 per day to valet park the car.

Set Your Priorities

This hotel was conveniently located near the convention center and several other attractions. The room itself, internal features, continental breakfast, room rate and staff helpfulness all get good marks. The only negative is the outward appearance of the hotel which is tired and in need of updating. It is in classic motel style with outside catwalks that could benefit from repaving.
