Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by livlys satisfied but.....
overall the hotel was nice and we did love the pool and hot tub. I thought all Holiday Inns included breakfast(one criteria I look for when I book) and this one did not. It did have a restaurant which we ate dinner and breakfast at. The food was very good, but this was definitely an extra cost that i had not planned on for breakfast.The restaurant staff were very nice.Also, there were never any towels at the pool and we needed to ask for them each time we used the pool.

Live only a couple of hours away from Nashville but like to go down occasionally for some shopping. I don't want to pay allot for a motel since I want to spend my $$$$ on fun things while shopping. Great service, Great location, Great Price and Great Hospitality. Breakfast was awesome and I got it free since I was a Priority Club member. I can't wait to go back again very soon.
Only Negative was no refrigerator/microwave in room and the rooms even tho clean could use some updating.

Nice room, comfortable beds. Reasonably convenient to downtown (parking not easy, but that's not HI's fault) and Opryland and Opry Mills mall. Considered it a good value, especially at the rate we paid (downtown rates too much). Did not eat in hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by nallur123 Rude Staff and Loud Guests
I am not sure what is the problem with this place. This is the first time I stayed here and I saw the reviews on the internet which were kind of mediocre. They mentioned the staff was rude. I thought I will still check it out. But they were right. The staff were very rude, the restaurant staff was rude. The front desk was rude. i had bought the stay with breakfast. My friends family whom I had booked along with my family did not realize and paid via credit card for their breakfast, I told the front desk about it and she says that they can not do anything about it. It was measly 10$ that was charged to the credit card and they thought that was more important than irritating a guest . Also at night there was loud music from one of the other rooms. The second day coffee and sugar were not refilled. Towels were not replaced. I will never stay at this place.

We have stayed at this hotel on 2 or 3 other occasions and it was superb. This time was another story. We brought our 2 kids with us this time and received a room with 2 double beds which were poorly made! The room seemed to me to be not well kept, stains and kind of dirty. We didn't have an ice bucket, but I let the front desk know and they brought one up in a timely manner. The customer service was great!! This is the first and LAST time we will try the hotel hot tub out, it was disgusting! When my daughter and I got out we had a dirty film all over us! On top of that the hotel had ran out of clean towels to dry off. We will probably stay here again if we come down without the kids. The check in and out process went well and the people at the front desk were GREAT!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by cc1972 Would have liked to see an updated workout facility, better bar service & some type of happy hour
The staff I talked to was very nice, however, a couple machines in the workout facility were non-functioning and needed a fan for airflow. I stayed at a couple different Holiday Inn Expresses for the membership rewards, however I am switching over to another chain. Most other chains have some type of welcome hour with complimentary drinks and snacks. Really helps socialize and relax a little. Even if it is a couple for a free drink and back of trail mix. It just wasn't a relaxed atmospere.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by WOC1 Good hotel but hard to sleep
The bed and the pillows were not comfortable at all. If I was going to stay at the hotel any longer I would have gone to the store to get my own pillow and blankets instead of using what the hotel provided.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by sharkman1991 Be careful when choosing this hotel!
I stayed at this hotel for three nights, checking in on 3/12/13 and checking out on 3/15/13. As some of the other reviews noted below, this hotel has a musty smell that permeated my room and my whole entire floor. It was very evident when coming in from the outside, getting on the elevator and then getting off on the seventh floor. It hit me even more once I opened the door to my room.
The water was shut off in the hotel due to maintenance on 3/14. There were signs notifying guests of this in advance, but the lack of water was only supposed to be from 1-5pm. It wasn't until after 6:30 that I was able to take a shower after working out at the gym. When I called the front desk at around 5:30 I was told, rather rudely, that they were still working on it. I imagined that they were getting quite a few calls.
The biggest indictment of this hotel, however, is the internet speed. It is fine during the day or the middle of the night, but from about 5-11pm, when guests are typically on the internet, it slows to a crawl, and even saying it crawls may be too generous. I'm old enough to remember having dial-up internet at my house, and I longed for those speeds during my three nights at this hotel. I called the customer service of the internet provider of the hotel my first night there and was told that the internet was working as expected and there were simply too many people on the internet at that time. What kind of a hotel has such a shoddy internet service that it cannot even handle the amount of guests staying at the hotel?
So I don't provide a completely negative review, I will say that as a Platinum Priority Club member, I was given a free full breakfast buffet for each morning I was at the hotel. That is not very common at Holiday Inn hotels, so that was good. I will also say that the Fitness Center at this hotel was excellent and beats any other Holiday Inn or Holiday Inn Express at which I have stayed.
I only picked this hotel because all of the downtown hotels were priced sky high due to the SEC basketball tournament going on, and, this hotel had a 10,000 Priority Club bonus point rate, of which I chose. I go to Nashville two or three times a year, but I really can't see any reason why I would stay at this property again. There are FAR better properties at the same price point in the Nashville area.

After a bad experience, I decided to try the hotel again. Upon arrival I was not addressed as a Plat. Pri. club member. Had reserved a smoking king and a non smoking king and received a 2 double bed smoking room. When we got to the room the commode was broke. After the maintenance person "Fixed" it the next time we went in the bathroom there was water all over the floor. We put towels down and dried the floor and turned the water off. The next morning Alex at the front desk (Keep this employee) moved us to the non existence king smoking room. Also when we arrived there was sign in the elevator that the water would be shut off the next day (During the SEC Tournament) not so smart. Alex said he would have liked to take care of something for us but since our room (smoking) was being paid for by our points there was anything he could do.
Holiday Inn name is being soiled by the conditions of the hotel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Peter33 Major Problems
There were major problems with the hotel and the room.
The water had apparently been off during the day, but was supposed to be OK by the time we checked in. However the water pressure in the room was extremely low and the service personnel appeared unable to fix the problem.
Consequently we had to shower under a trickle of water in the morning. This did however allow me time to study the mould growing on the top of the shower handrail,
Following this, while brushing my teeth the water drain pipe fell off from under the bathroom sink depositing water all over the floor of the bathroom.
On reporting this to staff on checking out there was surprise but no apology.
I left astounded.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by kyle27 Smells like mildew and internet was slow
This hotel is old and smells. The hallway, room and bathroom smelled musty.
The internet connection was excruciating slow. Could not get work done during evening hours because it was so slow!
The food in the restaurant was the only good thing.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Salessteve Great Staff, but outdated rooms
Not a bad hotel, but the rooms are getting dated. The rooms with two beds are Double beds, not queen, so be careful there. Our room had the old round table with two chairs instead of a desk, and the Internet barely worked making a bad choice for business travel. The window was sealed shut and had condensation on it the whole time. The room smelled a little musty. On the plus side the staff was nice and the restaurant was pretty good. I'll probably switch to the Holiday Inn Express by the airport next time

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by sghert Family Vacation
I took my family on a trip to Nashville and I booked a room at the Holiday Inn. The location was good and close to Oprymills mall. The room was average. The sink did not drain properly. The beds were small. The in room coffee was inadequate considering there were two adults staying in the room. The worst part about the coffee was that when room service came to service the room, they did not restock any of the coffee supplies. There were no cups, no coffee, and no condiments for the next morning. There was also no other reasonable option for coffee in the hotel. We also ran out of Kleenex tissues and room service did not restock those either.
Other than these issues, the hotel is well kept and probably worth staying at.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Wingman55 Not for business travellers
I am a platinum member and this is my first review. I usually have comfortable stay at every HIE but this one is a little different. Free shuttle to BNA was very convenient and prompt. Front desk people were not very professional and basically ignoring my problems. They did not pick up my calls from the room (not even in busy hours). Non smoking room (floor) was obviously smoked-in. Their answer was "because the floor below was smoking rooms".
My Priority status was totally ignored (all information was entered at the time of reservation and confirmed).
No hot shower unless you hold the handle which was loose. Internet was almost useless and weak during my stay ( 2 days...also heard the same from other hotel guests at the time).

No extra blankets in room. Got cold during night.
Sometimes, when turning on the bathroom light, a loud beep occurred momentarily, but not at switch , but in room. Desk clerk next morning said it was likely the smoke alarm beeping due to electrical "situation".
Thermostat on wall apparently not accurrate. Had to set to 77F to get warm.
Reported to desk clerk upon leaving. She did give me a $30 discount on my room. Appreciated that !

Location was convienent to the Grand Ole Opry and downtown. The house keeping staf were very accomadating. The front desk was far from helpful almost to the point of being rude. The room was clean and, typical of a Holiday Inn, the furniture was far from comfortable.
I have stayed at several Holiday Inns and do find them consistantly uncomfortable. I will probably switch to another chain
