"Nice room, but it was cold and I couldn't get the thermostat to work. The hotel clerk said someone would come up to fix the problem, but that didn't happen. It's hard to sleep when you're cold.2020-10-07"
"A good find in a safe location. The hotel was clean, and the room was large and had everything I needed. It was quiet, and the beds were comfortable. The check-in process was unique, but not too difficult if you follow instructions. 2022-05-12"

"Great location; walk to fine dining and fast-food options. There was a park across the street. The room was comfortable and spotless, and the employees were responsive to our family's needs during a troubling time for us. We had frequent car exchanges, and needed a larger room due to additional family members. Easy parking and great valet service.2021-01-19"
"The hotel lobby was elegant and nice, but the room had dated decor. The AC was so noisy it kept waking us up. The vending machine on our floor didn't work, so we had to go to another floor to get drinks. Not worth the high price. I won't be staying here again.2015-07-14"
"Nice room, but there was construction going on outside the hotel, so loud equipment noise started at 5 AM and continued throughout the day. Great staff.2021-06-29"

"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"

"The hotel was a joint property with a Residence Inn, so it was confusing when we arrived; we initially thought we were in the wrong place because of the signage. The room was fine. The elevators in the parking garage were out of order, and the signs were so small we couldn't read them from far away, so we didn't realize there were other elevators that worked. The TV in our room didn't work. The front desk clerk gave us incorrect directions. You'll need your room key to exit the garage after checkout.2021-04-09"

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.
