I had a decent stay in this Motel that is marketed as a hotel. Although the exterior is not favorable, my room would be rated as 4-5 stars because of the modern renovations.

I had a decent stay in this Motel that is marketed as a hotel. Although the exterior is not favorable, my room would be rated as 4-5 stars because of the modern renovations. Room 426 was clean, the bed slept well, and the shower was hot. Everything in the room was in working order. Pros: The friendliest staff I’ve encountered! The staff is what made my stay nice as well. Angel, Alisa, Lava, Gwen, and Jazmine all should be commended on their personalities. The free standard breakfast is decent. You order this on a pre printed menu the day before and pick it up in the lobby at a time you select. The location is close to everything downtown on Broadway street. It’s a 10 min walk, or you can Uber/Lyft for about $8. I felt safe in the area. The room was clean and modern. Cons: No microwave in room. Tiny, rickety elevator. It’s a high priced Motel. Room door opens directly to outside. Exterior is not favorable. Rooms are non refundable. Although I didn’t have any issues here, I probably wouldn’t stay again as I am used to staying in a nice Hotel while on vacation. ***See Photos*** Read less

The hotel is clean and provided complimentary breakfast. It’s in the middle of downtown Nashville, so we were able to walk to most places. Everyone was helpful, especially Aidan that does valet. He is a sweet and hard working young man.

Most honest review ever! Olivia, Gwen and Alisa went above and beyond when my 3rd party reservation was lost, assisting me the "customer" who was standing there after a long drive from Michigan wondering where my reservation was with my kids and husband looking at me. Olivia spoke 3 separate times to the travel agent trying to find a confirmation number to reference. Seeing my desperation she assured me that the hotel would have a place for us regardless. Alisa was offering help when she could but took on the extra load from the customers without ever missing a beat so Olivia could get us checked in. After a solid hour of trying it was a corporate issue from the 3rd party, Gwen was able to get it figured out! Now onto the hotel, for the price and location you could not beat it, there are more amazing hotels to say at, but really are you going to Nashville to sit in your room? Rooms were clean, the hotel was dated, but doing an amazing job keeping the property maintained. Breakfast was great, the cleaning staff was fantastic, overly accommodating, the valet driver whom I did not get his name, but he was NOT the normal valet and was filling in, he hustled in that 90+ degree weather without a complaint. If I ever return to Nashville I will stay here again, the staff was amazing, warm and caring, there are not many hotels that I can say I have been to that truly care about their guests! - With all of my gratitude to Olivia and the team - Katie W Read less

Very clean and safe place with a 1st class staff. They had a valet service 2nd to none. Location was easy to get to and had a ton of places to eat / dine / great music within a short walking distance. Callie, Olivia, Gwen and Jazz made us feel at home and always asked what we needed.

Came with a couple of friends from Cali. We had a great time at this hotel. It's perfectly located downtown close to all the goodness. They have a great bar with great bartenders (callie). Everyone is friendly helpful and accommodating. 5 stars would definitely return
