You Get What You Pay For

This was the cheapest downtown hotel we could find. The location was exactly what I wanted (walking distance from everything). However, because it was cheaper, there were some downfalls. The room got too warm at night and the bathroom was FREEZING. Didn't help that the shower pressure was so bad that you never warmed up. Otherwise, the room was clean, updated, and the staff was helpful. I would recommend, as long as you are willing to deal with some discomfort in the room.

Walk to the Main Attractions

and buy great meals and tickets with the money you save on hotel costs. Saw some great theatre on a Tuesday evening. Best Western downtown Nashville was perfect for our two day getaway. When I got home I discovered I had left two radios and headsets in a bag in my room. Without much hope I called the next day and found that they were being held for me at the front desk. I arranged to have a friend in Nashville pick them up. Valet parking attendants really hustle. Great breakfast.

Nice Downtown Hotel

Conveniently located in downtown Nashville. Great staff, parking, and clean rooms. Hotel was undergoing renovations and construction noise started at 8 am in the morning. No ability to sleep in, plan accordingly.

Average Hotel can get better in the area

This is my first and only stay in Nashville so far, so I'll put that as a disclaimer. When I shopped around this hotel had the best price of the bigger hotels by a minimal amount. O- said that it had free parking (which it did not). So I thought I could save a good deal of money and still stay downtown. For business travelers don't bother with this. Like I said I had to pay for parking so the amount saved was like $20 a night or something like that. Not worth it for what the hotel has. Almost no amenities, little bit of a further walk from convention center and the district. I walked through some of the other hotels and when compared to the other hotels in the downtown area there really isn't a comparision go with the others. But if you want to stay downtown and save a few extra dollars then this hotel is perfect. I would say it is one step above a motel so don't expect to much.

Construction & outside entry to room

As a single woman traveling I was very uncomfortable with the room having an outside entry - I did not feel safe at all. Also the hotel is under construction and that should be noted when making reservations.

Not so great

Stayed because really wanted downtown hotel for walking convenience, all other hotels were booked for Titans and Music City Bowl. Would not rate as a 3 star. The room was clean which is a definite plus, however, the hotel is run down...were doing some remodeling, but still not impressed. Valet parking only. Desk staff and valet were very nice and helpful.

worst hotel on a 5 week USA holiday

First appearance at reception said "dingy'. This was verified by the overall grotty condition of hotel, the room was dank and airless. The sheets and pillow cases looked like they had not been been washed after previous occupants slept there. Staff decidedly unfriendly. Rooms unfortunately share a common balcony, had a loud group partying outside our door at 3am. So bad had to book out next morning and find alternative accommodation. Would suggest this hotel be taken off any booking lists.

Great location and value

Perfect location for a long weekend: a few easily walkable blocks to the Ryman, Tootsie's, Layla's, Jack's BBQ, and the central bus terminal (express service to Opryland Hotel/Opry Mills mega-mall and also the airport). Quick cab ride to the clubs on Church St. Comfortable room w/new bathroom; friendly and helpful staff; complimentary continental breakfast was a plus. Can't do better on a budget.
