great price super friendly

I would normally stay across the street but this was a last minute trip and it was not available. So I seen this and gave it a try....parking was tricky to find but , our room was very clean, the valet attendant was super friendly along with the front desk clerk. The price and location made it even better.

People make the difference

This is a more affordable hotel in a prime location. The staff are exceedingly helpful and friendly but the facility itself is starting to show wear. My coffee maker was broken but they brought me a new one. I had trouble getting on the wireless Internet and they brought me a cord. I would definitely stay here again! I stayed during the week for business and it was reasonably quiet.

Great location for the $$$

Went to Nashville for a weekend getaway. We went to check out the country music hall of fame and the honky-tonk downtown scene. The hotel was a quick ten minute walk from broadway and second street. The hotel itself has an outside entrance to each apartment which is slightly awkward but nothing the blinds won't fix. The hotel rooms were clean and well kept for the reasonable price. The front desk was a little blunt about check in times and overall attitude towards paying customers, but the valet and other staff made up for it with genuine hospitality. Overall, the hotel was great and made the stay even better with its cheap price.

Don't set expectations too high

Pros: very close to Broadway (where all the bars and fun places are), breakfast was sufficient (biscuits and gravy!), low price, valet (parking is $10 per day but you can come and go as often as you want) Cons: old, small rooms, dusty and somewhat dirty, 1 outlet was out and light bulb in bathroom was out (they did replace it immediately) and front desk staff were kind of rude, can hear lots of outside/street noise due to outside entrances
