"This hotel was being remodeled and seemed a little chaotic. The room was clean, the Internet connection worked well, and the employees were nice. Just a place to sleep.2017-03-03"
"This hotel was horrible. The beds felt like bricks, the pool was filthy, and we left covered in bites. Never again.2016-06-25"
"Easy to access, but not worth the price. The hotel room was in poor condition, and the beds were uncomfortable. There was mold in the bathroom, and the wallpaper was coming off. The whole place just felt dirty.2016-06-08"
"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 motel room was clean and comfortable, and the price suited my budget.2018-09-10"

"The motel smelled like cigarettes. Don't stay here.2019-05-09"
"The toilet in the 1st room ran continually. No one answered the phone at the front desk, so I had to go down and ask for a room change. The motel clerk didn't tell me how to operate the coffee maker. Don't stay here.2017-05-11"

"The hotel clerk had a bad attitude and wasn't nice to me. I was disappointed.2019-06-14"
"Horrible experience. The room had mold, and I was told I couldn't change rooms until 10 PM. I'd never stay here again.2015-09-11"
"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"

Think twice about staying here.2021-05-12"

"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 motel was fairly clean. The smoking room wasn't great, but it was the only room available. Good rates, and my dog was allowed.2015-07-13"
"Our 1st night at this motel was fine. But we had noisy neighbors the 2nd night, and couldn't get through to anyone at the front desk. When we complained at checkout, all we got was "sorry". Won't be back.2015-06-09"
"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"

I don't recommend staying here.2021-04-12"

"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"

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.
