Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Barbara6703 Great Breakfast Omelets
Everything about this stay was great. I was able to relax and enjoy Nashville. Walter, the chef, scrambled my eggs and cooked my husband's omelets "just right." Our room was around the corner from the elevator, but it was still very quiet and comfortable.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by BroncoBill Great location and friendly staff!
My wife and I visited Nashville to go to Opryland and the Grand Ole Opry. This was a GREAT location, easy drive to downtown and Opryland, and very reasonalby priced compared to some of the other places we checked out. We got the rate with the free breakfast and buffet. Walter, who makes omlettes, waffles, eggs, etc was EXCELLENT and very funny! His omlettes are the best! We also went to the bar (Ivories) in the evening for some drinks which was also very nice. This is a great place and I would recommend it to anyone visiting Nashville

The room was clean, the bed was ok, the pillows.... Terrible.
The air did not work the first night, however it was fixed in the morning. Just not a good value for the price, to many other good hotels in the area.

Was well pleased with overall stay at this location. Room was very nice. Staff was very helpful and went out of their way making sure my stay was enjoyable. The only negative is parking. Due to activities going on at this location parking becomes a premium.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by JBuffett Bad Attitudes
Although I didn't get any names the front desk staff was less than charming upon check in. The key machine was not working and I was told some of the rooms were not ready yet. I understand they were busy but our check in time was 3:00 p.m.(this was already 4:00 p.m.) and we had reserved this about 2 months in advance. it's not like they did not know we were coming. I understand the key machine was not working but I don't understand how the 4-6 Tennessee state troopers who were ahead of us were able to get in their rooms with no problem. I am really not that hard to get along with and empathize when folks might be having a bad day. But attitude is everything and those gals up front had bad ones.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Tomb118 The place is showing its age in a bad way
I have using this property for the past ten years, and I will not use this one again. I am very happy with Holiday Inn as a whole, but the Elm Hill Pk has fallen off. The place is showing it age bad, the rooms and floors smell old and musty - I heard this from all parties travelling with me. The HVACs are old and noisy, The breakfast staffing was way under staffed and it was a bad experiance - long lines and bad food.. We had catered lunch in the attruim, food was good, but there were birds flying around and landing on our buffet to steal food, not very sanitary. Ivories Lounge, the staff there, and I have visited with them for over 10 years, has lost its step and has problems servicing even the smallest crowds.
Still a loyal HI person, just not this property.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by jy77 Good location, reasonable rates
Although it's not within walking distance of anything worth note (except maybe the Waffle House), it is located where getting to either the Grand Ole Opry or Downtown is equally convenient. It is a nice-sized property with plenty of parking, clean and well-run.

This property is showing its age. Great location for the hotel but other than that a very average property. AC controls in room were vintage 70s as was the room decor. My guess is that the building is either slated for the demolition ball or a very major renovation.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Sharoxo Short but nice stay
My only two complaints would be the noise of other guests. No consideration for others during the night and the cleaning staff that starts so early. I know they are doing their job and I am appreciative of there job but before 8 seems early. Hotel is convenient to everything and very well kept

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Am612 It was just OK....
I stayed at this hotel because I had friends were staying there. I would have stayed at another one of the hotels in the surrounding area if I had the chioce. It wasn't a horrible experience, but I have had much better!! The staff's demeanor was mediocre at best and it seemed as if I may have been botehring them. I won't be back...

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Outraged4913 People at front desk were nice
The room was truly dirty. There was dirt/dust on the table bottom, dirt/cobwebs under the TV and on the outlet next to the floor, carpet was filthy and was almost afraid to sleep under the cover of the bed-sprayed disinfectant spray on it twice; nothing holding the pillows together to show they were clean; extremely small pillows-4 on each bed; no vendin machine other than a soda machine on each floor; ice machines only worked on a few of the floors in the large hotel. Upon check-out, I was asked if everything was OK. I stated 'no' and proceeded to explain. I don't complain, but at $110 & $120 per night, I felt that it was entirely over-rated. I was simply told "I'm sorry". My relative had serious surgery @ Vanderbilt, and it was a necessity to stay. However, I would have left if I could have. I would never advise anyone to stay at this Holiday Inn.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Dissapointed972 Poor amenities and service
I am a platinum member in Holiday Inn's reward program.
I am also one to never complain about much of anything. But will praise someone who is exceptional.
But I just have to share this one.
I was looking to stay the night comfortably and relaxing.
What I got was anything but.
I arrived late from DFW. I called the hotel to make sure the shuttle service was still running. He told me yes, they were making their last pick up shortly and he would tell the driver to wait for me.
I got my bags and headed out side. I waited the 20 minutes like the man asked and still no shuttle. I called again and he said the shuttle was at the airport. So I waited another 10 minutes, still no shuttle. I saw plenty of other hotel shuttle buses, even the same shuttle bus for the Hilton three times, but no Holiday Inn.
I called back and then he checked and found out that the keys for both vans were hanging up at the hotel so I was out of luck.
So I got a cab for $15.00 and went to the hotel.
I was a little hungry and figured that it was too late for the bar or anything to be open. I was right.
I asked the Front desk clerk if anything was open around the Hotel, He told me that Waffle House was and it was at the end of the parking lot.
So I got my key, went to my room. I looked out my room window and spotted the Waffle House about 1200 yards away from the hotel. It was late and I was tired, so I decided it was too far and then went to find a vending machine.
The only vending machine was a coke machine on each floor.
Now I want to get to sleep. I was looking for some snack and some bottled water. NO SNACK MACHINE AND NO WATER IN THE COKE MACHINE.
This has to be the first hotel I have stayed in that did not even have either one.
All they had was Coke and Diet Coke. Everything else was sold out. They did have a gift shop on the bottom floor, but that was closed as well.
I called down to the front desk and the man that answered the phone acted like he did not care. He said that I was out of luck and if I had any problem I could talk to the manager in the morning. I said I would and asked what time he would be coming in, He did not know, but he assumed it would be around 8:00.
Guess what I had a 6:00 am flight.
I did check in with the front desk in the morning, guess what else.......
The same inconsiderate man at the front desk as when I checked in.
I will be sure to never stay the night at this hotel again.

Expecting to stay just one night, extended to three nights. Very comfortable, conveniently located, and a great value. Evenings at the lounge were very enjoyable and the lounge staff were friendly and professional. Breakfasts were great fun with your entertaining chefs cooking up egg omelettes and such Our stay at this facility certainly enhanced our first visit to Nashville. We will be back.

We enjoyed everything and the staff was good. We are surprised however that microwaves and refrigerators are not a constant in each room! We thought that Holiday Inn was an upscale hotel. These amenities are included in other hotels where we have stayed, including other HI's.
Thank you for considering this review.

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Lucky560 Great stay!
After reading the reviews before we left on our trip, I was not expecting much during our stay. I was totally surprised!
Check in was quick and efficient. The room was large and there were two places to put our very large suitcases, something that was lacking all week unless requested. We were given tickets for drinks and breakfast. Our room was very quiet, even in the early morning.
The only issue that could have been corrected if we had realized it, was the AC wasn't working correctly. While we were gone for dinner, it cooled to where we set it but after turning it off for a while before bedtime, it wouldn't cool again. The thermostat was flashing that it needed a new battery so that could have been the problem.
By the way, the internet was working just fine and the staff was extremely pleasant.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by BBob73 Overall Stay
The bedding is in bad need of updating. Furthermore, the HVAC system seems like it is either all or nothing with respect to temp control. At times, the room smelled musty. Finally, the internet svs was non-functional period. I have stayed here several times and the internet connection and speed leave a lot to be desired.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by MiserableInNashville No internet for my entire stay!!
How can a hotel like Holiday Inn have their internet down for 3 days? I was never able to do any work from my room due to the internet being down. I was stunned. I was NEVER able to access the internet. The front desk said it was the server that had to be replaced. Once that was done, the service still would not work. They could not give anyone an answer as to why it was down or when it would be working again.
This was an AWFUL Holiday Inn experience for me. It was 3 days of misery. I would have moved to another hotel if the hotel would have been honest and said that it would be days until the internet was back. I held out hope that it would return. That didn't happen.

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.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by jillry03 Great Customer Service
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!
