Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by The Butler Desperately needs update.
Front desk, housekeeping and bell service were all friendly and helpful but our room smelled terrible!!! Carpet was badly soiled and room smelled very musty. Had housekeeping spray after arrival but just could not mask the odor. Sold out everywhere so we had no choice but to stay Friday evening. Saturday was paid for but couldn't bare another night in that sticky place. Bed was okay but other furnishing are in need of replacement. Our room was prepaid but we just took the loss and didn't risk our health.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Gut check 213456 Took away all the things good about the hotel
I am a business traveler, when I checked in at this particular Holiday Inn I was informed that they no longer provided priority club members who are gold or silver with complimentary breakfast. I was greeted by a host at the front desk who was less than friendly. She proceeded to tell me that a thirty dollar charge would be added to my card to cover any hotel charges that I incurred while staying with them. I told her if it was not removed I was going to another hotel. At this point I should have gone to another hotel. If there was something good to say about this place it would be about the housekeepers and the wait staff they were very professional. I will consider staying somewhere else on my next business trip to Nashville.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Skyprincess84 Run down hotel in disparate need of renovations
I usually don't write reviews but I had to with this property. This has is without a doubt the worst Holiday Inn I've ever stayed in. The rooms were dingy and had literal Cobb webs in the room. Walking to my room down the hall there were rooms that had holes in the door and one room had masking tape blocking the room off. I was so happy I was only there for a few short hours because I did not feel safe, clean or comfortable. I would not recommend this property to anyone, very disappointed.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by PontiacGTO Great Service
The associates at the hotel were extremely friendly and helpful. If we had a question, if they didn't have the answer, they would get the answer. The food was excellent. The morning chef making omelets and waffles made it extremely friendly as well as a waitress on Saturday night 3/22 (Ronnie Milsaps daughter-in-law) was extremely helpful with verifying what foods my wife could eat since she is very allergic to MSG.
The only problem that we had was no small refrigerator in our room for beverages.
I will recommend your hotel to anyone that is going into Nashville for a stay.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Flyer23 Horrible beds and old carpet
This hotel needs a serious renovation. The carpets were dark and dingy, the decor old and outdated, and the bed's mattress was horrible. In a Queen size bed I rolled into the middle, if I wanted to or not. Very soft, old and uncomfortable mattress.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by Angela00 Overall update needed
Lobby was nice but hallways and rooms need updating. Carpet in our room seemed old and the wallpaper was peeling. There was a lot of condensation on the window in the room, with water that puddled in the window seal tracks. And maybe this was a seasonal thing, but we were invaded with ladybugs! They were everywhere! Our commode ran almost ALL the time and sometimes wouldn't flush. We told hotel staff upon check-out about the ladybugs and the commode and they said they would take care of it.
The location of the hotel was good but if we ever come back to Nashville, we will be staying elsewhere.

Love this hotel. Have stayed here multiple times. It's easy access to downtown as well as the Grand Ole Opry and Opry Mills Mall. The hotel is very clean, courteous staff and extremely comfortable beds. Highly recommend.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by thwilson459 Would not stay here again..
I would not recommend this hotel to anyone. We stayed here to continue to use our rewards program. But this is the worst Holiday Inn we have ever stayed at. This is an older outdated hotel. It’s a 14 story hotel. Two of the four elevators were out of service most of the time we were there over a weekend. Needed the front desk in the middle of the night, for security reasons, and it took over 20 calls to get an answer at the front desk. Then security never called us back or checked with us at our room to see if the issue was resolved. Desk staffed was not very friendly; they just seemed to be there.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by marshallgrads Quick weekend trip
Had a quick weekend trip to Nashville scheduled to see a Hockey game. When we arrived, the hotel was busy with a Coast Guard convention, but the staff was doing a suberb job trying to get everyone checked in. They were full of course, so it took a little time to clean all the rooms. All staff that we met in the hotel were extremely nice and all spoke and said Hello to make you feel welcomed. Thanks "Cody" in the bar for making our trip a little special. She was most pleasant and provided some much needed chat and humor while we waited for our room to be cleaned.

We did not enjoy our stay here. Unfriendly check-in staff , reluctant to honor 'member rewards' status; wi-fi did not function & according to previous reviews, it has not been for some time; pillows were bad; room very small; cleaning staff very noisey early in the am.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by AmandaVeee Worth it!
My husband and I showed up to this hotel around 9pm completely worn out from traveling. The lady at the front desk was very courteous and offered us a room that would be the quietest! We went for the king bed room and the bed was very comfortable. I slept just like I would at home. The room was clean, though the carpet could use updating, and I could've used a mini fridge. I will definitely stay here again the next trip to Nashville.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by PaG45 Not well kept
The facility is not in good shape -- the half the work out equipment was unuable, the casual sitting area was basically a simple chairs. For a acility that is "Holiday Inn" it looked more like a motel.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by TravelingMan33 I did not enjoy staying here
My stay here was not the most pleasant hotel visit I have had. The hot water in shower was not working properly. The wifi was down at the time.
For you fellow goverment employeees, they are taking away the free continial breakfast. They did not want to give it to me, this time, but I argued and showed them printout showing I was entitled to free continial breakfast. They did eventually get it to me; its not like I am asking for hot breakfast.
That night I also witness a different customer checking out and going to different hotel. I believe, I understood the Wifi and hot water were the issues.
Next time, I will try to find Holiday Inn Express so I can have: free continial breakfast, frig and microwave.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by tooMUCHdrama Too much drama
Mixed reviews on front desk staff.
James, the front desk clerk Mon evening, was great. The power had gone out and the reservation system was down for about an hour, and he finessed the rowdy check-in crowd with down-home charm, humor and grace.
The desk clerk Tue morning was awful. She was frazzled and uncooperative, and took it out on me. The power outage apparently dinged my reservation (only one night of my two-night confirmation remained) and she was not willing to hear or look at my proof that I was supposed to have a 2nd night. The hotel was booked, and she wouldn't help me get on any kind of waiting list.
It's too bad that I remember the negative experience more strongly than the positive one, but that it the way I feel.
There is no need to ever return to that Holiday Inn. There are just too many other options without the drama.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Busy Bill Restaurant was great
I stayed 3 nights in a row and had dinner in the restaurant. Meals were very good. However, housekeeping decided not to clean my room one of the days; so make sure there are extra towels in your room if they forget you.

This property is well located but is old and tired. 2 out of 4 elevators out of service. No real desk to work from. Very limited TV channel line up. Ice maker kept me up my first night. OK after I moved but that is a pain. Check in was a nightmare. Guy on the front desk was totally unfit for those duties. So many other choices in Nashville...I won't be back.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Mary jane Great!!
My boyfriend and I stayed here over the weekend and it was great! The service was excellent, the room was nice and clean. The pool was great. Our bartender, Troy, was funny and great, the drinks were nice and very reasonable priced compared to 2nd st. The breakfast buffet was wounderful. We thoroughly enjoyed our stay here from start to finish. We will definitely be back!

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by GRPII Definitely Not The Best
I travel frequently for work and don't often feel compelled to write reviews, but in this case I felt it was warranted. I experience three issues that I would like to share: 1) After checking in, I thought I would head down to the lounge for a beer. Arriving at the lounge, I found a table and sat down. I sat there for 15 minutes waiting for someone to take my order. Never happened! There were two people working behind the bar that never acknowledge I was there. And they were not all that busy. I gave up and went back to my room. 2) After getting back to my room, I thought I would check my flight status for the next day. The internet connection was so slow that I could not get the airline page to load. It kept timing out. After several attempts, I gave up and went to bed. 3) The next morning I went to the restaurant having purchased the “Best for Breakfast” option which is actually a buffet. The food was pretty bad. The scramble eggs had an unusual taste and the bacon was very greasy. My waitress did not show up until it was time for the check. I was never asked what I wanted to drink. I ended up getting breakfast at the airport.
The service and internet at this hotel definitely needs improving!
When I travel, I most stay at Holiday Inn Express’s and always have great experiences. I ended up picking this Holiday Inn because of its proximity to the airport. I think I will stay the Express brand from here on out.

By far the worst Holiday Inn I have ever stayed at and I stay in Hotels 250 nights a year. I had my family visit me and the restaurant food wasnt even close to be as good as McDonalds. You must be at least 65 or older to enjoy the bar down stairs and for being Nashville...the Band is utterly terrible. Hotel stinks and needs renovations badly. Not worth the money paid for the room..or the expensive food billsvyou will recieve for substandard food with the exception of the morning breakfast omelet chef..very friendly..and prepared a mean omelet.

I am in my 10th year in platinum status and use my points for leisure stays often and I have to say I would never use this facility again, the room was small, tub did not drain, shower curtain stank ,bed was hard and I was never offered even one morning of free breakfast which typically is a a definite for sure at 99.9% of my stays. They did immediately come for the tub issue after I called but by then I was over it!

I have stayed at Opryland many nights over the last few years but it really showed it's age on this visit and combined with the price increase and no free breakfast makes this a poor choice in the Nashville area.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Jasper2012 Last Time
This hotel is changed since my last visit. As a platinum ambassador member of IHG, I have stayed here several times in the past and always looked forward to be treated like a valued customer. Now, not so much. As a frequent guest I was always treated to upgraded rooms, manager's reception and a complementary cooked to order breakfast. The hotel is in need fro a major renovation but the extras in the past helped me overlook the negative issues. I can stay just up the road in another brands place and receive all the extras and have a nicer room. So, frequent travelers beware. Its not the same place.
