"Nothing fancy; just an average hotel. The customer service and breakfast were good.2019-08-05"
"The hotel was under renovation, but my stay was still great. The room was clean and quiet. Breakfast was good, and the dining area was pretty and clean. Just watch for the driveway; it was hidden and easy to miss.2016-03-02"
"Close enough to everything. Nice hotel and staff. The room was clean, and the king room was spacious and had a great layout with a small fridge. Breakfast was small. There was a Wendy's and gas station across the street.2018-01-03"
"Just 12 minutes from downtown Nashville. Good hotel with great staff. I give it 5 stars.2015-11-13"
"Not a very good experience. There were youth hockey players staying at the hotel, and they were extremely noisy. I called the front desk 4 or 5 times about it, but they couldn't keep the kids from playing hockey in the hall and yelling. The night clerk gave us a gift card for the inconvenience, and the manager comped our room.2016-01-19"
"The hotel was clean, and everything was great. Breakfast was nice and hot.2015-08-12"
"There was no one at the front desk when we arrived, and no one answered the phone for 30 minutes. Luckily, a security guard let us in at 2:30 AM, but there wasn't even a top sheet on our bed. Dogs barked all night. We'll never stay at this hotel again and don't recommend it.2019-05-20"
"The motel didn't look like online photos, and it was right next to a train track; the noise woke us up in the middle of the night. Find another place to stay.2021-03-29"
"The carpet in our room was disgusting, and the sofa was so stained that I wouldn't sit on it. The TV in the living room didn't work. The bathtub and shower were old and stained. Don't stay at this motel.2020-08-03"
"The bathroom was so filthy that I cleaned it myself. There was also soap scum in the sink and bathtub. The toilet had stains, and there were hairs on it. Housekeeping didn't properly service the room the next day; all they did was empty the trash and remove the rags I'd used to clean. Don't stay at this motel.2019-12-10"
"The motel room was tiny, with the bathtub just 4 steps from the bed. I was uncomfortable with the men hanging out on the balcony staring at me when I walked by. Train noise disturbed my sleep. On a positive note, the TV had many premium channels. Don't expect much.2023-03-28"
"The motel room wasn't the cleanest, and the floor was dirty. The 1st room was bad; the AC was on, but the thermostat was on another wall behind a lamp. The TV remote control didn't work; I got another one at the front desk, but it didn't work either. The toilet made a terrible noise when flushed. My husband complained and we got an upgraded room. It was much better, but the carpet was stained.2023-02-25"
"The bed was comfortable, and the fridge worked well. Be prepared for noise, though; there were railroad tracks behind the property, and occasional train horns. Industrial noise from businesses across the street started early in the morning, and traffic noise was also audible. The motel clerks were nice and helpful.2022-01-12"

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.
