"Convenient to local entertainment. The hotel was clean and nice inside and out. The staff was polite, and everything I needed was right there. Beautiful environment. Breakfast was just bagels and boiled eggs, but I had an excellent stay.2021-04-13"
"Close to everything. The hotel clerks and the food were great, but the housekeeper threw away my expensive mouthpiece that I left on the nightstand. Management never called me back as promised.2017-12-27"
"Great location. The hotel and service were excellent.2016-06-01"
"Good location near Broadway. The AC was loud and didn't work that well. We extended our stay one night, and were told to get our key cards reset; the clerk said we didn't need to, but of course our keys didn't work when we returned at night. The pool and exercise room looked nice, though we didn't use them. Breakfast wasn't free.2021-06-01"

"The hotel was filthy, and there were homeless people outside. No daily housekeeping; guests threw everything outside in the hallway, then got fresh towels at the front desk. The $50 deposit was ridiculous. Breakfast was horrible. Don't stay here.2021-06-29"
"The hotel rates were high, but the quality was low. Plaster was falling from the shower ceiling in a 3-foot area. The balcony looked like it hadn't been cleaned in a year. Parking cost $30.2020-10-03"
"The hotel was beautiful, but I was disappointed that there was no swimming pool.2019-07-27"
"Some of the hotel floors were under construction, and the noise from power tools started at 7 AM each morning. We didn't get much sleep at all. The checkout clerk didn't give us a discount or even offer an apology.2017-03-10"
"Terrific location. The hotel staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Great rooftop pool and bar.2021-06-29"
"I didn't like the concrete ceilings in my room or the minimal lighting. No one could help me operate the "smart" TV. We found trash under the bed. Breakfast cost $19 per person and was terrible, and parking cost $38 per night. I don't recommend this hotel.2018-04-02"
"The motel was in an optimal location. The room was clean and comfortable, and the size was adequate. The staff was accommodating. Great breakfast room. I recommend staying here.2022-03-21"
"Affordable and close to VUMC. The motel room was clean and comfortable, but the bathroom was too small; the door hit the shower rail, so I couldn't open it all the way. The separate sink area was fine. Quick check-in. Breakfast had a variety of options. We were able to park right by our room.2018-02-09"
"I chose this motel because of the price and convenience to Vanderbilt Hospital, but I wouldn't stay here again. It was old and needed updating. Security was good and the bed was comfortable, but the bathroom was small and wasn't clean. There was what looked like mold in the corners. Not enough washcloths provided. There were only 2 drawers in the room for storage, so I had to keep most of my belongings in my suitcase. Consider other options.2018-02-03"
"We enjoyed our stay. The motel was close to Vanderbilt Children's Hospital. Nice breakfast bar.2018-01-08"
"The motel did seem to be clean, but the room and bathroom were small and the sink was low. The bathroom doorknob was loose.2017-04-07"
"The lobby at this historic hotel was beautiful; it was a wonderful space. The room was standard. The valet staff was friendly, attentive, helpful, knowledgeable, and anxious to please. The front desk clerks could have been more polite and helpful, though.2019-08-20"
"Absolutely beautiful hotel. The restaurant food was delicious. A wonderful experience. Highly recommend.2015-04-10"
"Great experience. The hotel was a bit on the expensive side, but worth it. Walk to everything downtown and on Music Row. The room was nice and comfortable, and so was the bed. The employees were helpful. I'd definitely stay here again and highly recommend it.2021-07-28"
"I had an awesome stay and can't wait to go back to this hotel. The staff was helpful and went out of their way to make me feel at home. Stay as long as you can.2020-07-20"
"Good value. The hotel was right across the street from Bridgestone Arena and steps from Broadway. The room was amazingly clean, and the employees were friendly and helpful. Worth a stay.2018-04-07"
"I was told our room would be ready by 1 PM, but it wasn't ready until 3. I didn't like that the housekeeper went in our room and cleaned while we were out. Try another hotel.2018-02-21"

How Do We Define Motel?
To us, motels are smaller lodgings that have rooms you can enter directly from the parking area.
At hotels, on the other hand, you can enter your room only through a hall inside the building.
Hotel Booking Tips
Beware of non-refundable reservations that could cost you a lot of money if you change or cancel them. +Non-refundable reservations are a gamble that will usually save you less than $10. If you make a $90 non-refundable reservation instead of a $100 refundable booking, you are betting $90 to win $10. Would you do that in Las Vegas? -
Don't assume you can cancel a non-refundable reservation without penalty if you notify the hotel weeks or even months in advance. +Often you cannot because some hotels' profit strategy is to get paid more than once for the same room for the same night. -
Always read cancellation policies carefully before you make a reservation. + When is the latest date and time you can cancel without penalty? - More >
When you make a reservation, you will receive a confirmation email. Take a copy with you to the hotel.
The earlier in the afternoon you check into a hotel, the more likely you will get a room or suite that matches your preferences.
