"The beds in my hotel room were comfortable, and the microwave and fridge were super. However, the carpet was stained. The bathroom had a shower, but no bathtub. Limited options at breakfast.2022-07-04"
"We weren't informed that the hotel was undergoing a major renovation. There were supplies everywhere and lots of dust. The room was tiny and crammed with furniture, but there was nowhere to put luggage. The pillows were small and inadequate. The lightbulb in one of the bedside lamps exploded when we turned it on, showering glass on the table. There was no electrical outlet on the other side, just a power strip on the mattress behind the bed. The rolling wooden bathroom door squeaked and rumbled, so there was no way to close it at night without waking my spouse. Only 2 towels were provided. Employees were noisy in the early morning. We had to unstack chairs and tables ourselves to eat breakfast. Don't stay here.2018-12-22"

"The hotel was beautiful and clean, and the staff was amazing. However, there were a lot of stairs and there was a lot of walking and confusion for seniors. Nice shuttle to the General Jackson and the Grand Ole Opry.2021-07-25"
"I enjoyed my short hotel stay. The Christmas decorations were beautiful. The signage could've been better, though. We tried to eat at Fuse, but the staff was horrible and we were never seated after an hour of waiting for a table.2018-11-13"

"Nice hotel with a good shuttle service. We had a great stay.2018-02-06"
"The staff was nice and helpful, but we didn't have a good stay due to a disruptive group of cheerleaders also staying at the hotel. They took over the pool and breakfast bar and were extremely noisy. Our room wasn't serviced during our 3-day stay, and there were lots of ants in the bathroom. Without the large group of rowdy guests, we likely would have enjoyed our stay.2017-04-04"
"I loved this hotel. The room was nice, and the employees were pleasant and helpful. Breakfast could've been better.2016-06-23"
"The hotel was clean. The bathroom was too small. The front desk clerks were courteous and helpful with restaurant suggestions. Acceptable breakfast, but there was no variety from day to day.2016-02-15"
"There was water on the bathroom floor when we got to our room. I had to clean it up, and there was only 1 set of clean towels and washcloths. We went to the front desk to get more towels, and the hotel clerk asked if we needed them. The lotion bottle was only half full. The shower water was lukewarm, and the body soap dispenser was empty. Think twice about staying here.2021-05-12"

"Conveniently located. Clean hotel. The AC didn't work in our room, but the staff was accommodating and moved us to another room. I'd booked 2 rooms, so our party ended up on different floors. The toilet wouldn't flush, the sink wouldn't drain, and the faucets were barely connected in the bathtub. The ice machine didn't work. Wouldn't stay again.2015-07-02"
"The room door would only open about 3 inches, so we were given another room. It was on the 1st floor and faced the interstate. The bed was clean and comfortable. The bathroom could've been cleaner, and the drywall by the toilet needed replacement. There were small bugs. Stay at this hotel at your own risk.2022-06-13"
"A really great experience. Walk to Opryland Hotel, or take the shuttle. The rooms overlooked the indoor pool and whirlpool, and everyone was so friendly. The on-site restaurant had live music. The only negative was that the pool closed at 9 PM. Pick this hotel.2019-12-11"

"The hotel exterior was nice. The room was clean, but it needed lots of repairs. The desk was missing a drawer pull. The bathroom door and molding were chipped in many places, and the toilet paper dispenser was coming off the wall. No stopper in the sink. The front desk clerks were friendly. I don't recommend staying here.2021-04-12"

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.
