Every single staff member we met during this stay was helpful and positive. Linda in the kitchen was especially helpful with directions and advice about downtown Nashville.
Keep up the great work!

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Cbj53 Dated property
This property had only been partially upgraded to Holiday Inn's usual standard. The beds ,TV, rug and curtains were new but the walls , ceilings and bathroom were old and substandard. The location was fine, but there was no pool.

Rated 1.0 out of 5.0 by PG41 Not what I have grown to expect from a HI Express
I have become a big fan of the HI Express brand after my introduction to them about 18 months ago. My normal spot in my son's college town is a beautiful property and I stay there regularly. I have found other similar properties in other cities. To my chagrin, this property was nothing like the other ones in which I have stayed.
At first approach, I was concerned with the neighborhood surrounding the property. It seemed run down with many people wandering about the streets with no purpose. There was a very low end if not "red light" hotel across the street.
When looking at this property it is very outdated and appears to be converted from some other brand. The Lobby was nice but small, the staff was courteous.
My room was small and looked/felt outdated. As a rewards gold member I was rewarded with a room on the back side of the elevator and next to the tile entryway. I could clearly hear the rolling bags on the tile as they skipped into the hallway. The elevator was very loud on my wall. This room seems to be better suited as a service room as opposed to a guest room.
I stayed the one night since we arrived and immediately went to dinner, not grasping how much I disliked the place until it was really too late. The next day I checked out and moved to the HI Express closer to the airport, which is a new up to date property in what appears to be a better area.
Bottom line is this property does not live up to the HI Express standards in my opinion.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Farmerone Oldest express we have been in
We always choose holiday express for our travel stays. This was the oldest building we have stayed in so it was not as fresh as we are accustommed too. But quite ok. Room 310 needs a light blocking shade or window drape. The night lite shines right in the room. We did some improvising with the shade to darken the room

Rated 4.0 out of 5.0 by Tleencc pretty good, but needs a little updating :)
We have stayed at this hotel 3 yrs in a row now. It is convenient to where we need to be. I keep expecting there to be some upgrading to the hotel. Compared to other properties (we also stay at the Holiday Inn Express in Saraland, AL) it could use a little facelift. I do appreciate the start they have made, though. The bathrooms are up to par as well as the breakfast choices.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by dr57 disapointed in stay
check in was very good but other assistance at the desk was less than average..not rudd but disconcerning
the fruit was not up to HI EXP standards (bananas were nearly spoiled
it was a wet cold week in Nashville / the room was warm but the floor was very cold, I had to keep shoes on untill i went to bed
the biggest disapointment is in the wi fi; very low connectivity but worse than that the computer in the business center was so poor that I couldn't even connect to print my boarding pass.
I won't stay here again.

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by sip50 I slept like a baby
I arrived early but was able to check in. The check in was quick and painless. The room was quiet and the bed comfortable. I had the best night's sleep due to the comfortable bed and absolutely no outside noise. Breakfast was great with lots of choices. The staff was friendly and helpful. Very easy access to the interstate.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by Battsman Handicapped Patrons Beware
Let me start by saying that the staff was friendly enough and there wasn't anything "specificly" wrong with my stay personally. Rather, I have stayed at a number of Holiday Inn Express properties and this is not one of the better ones. It is clear that this was a different hotel chain's property at some point and was converted to a Holiday Inn Express. The associated remodeling was a "just the basics" remodel. The HIE standard lobby and room fixtures are all there, but the remodel outside of those was limited. For example, one can see where walls were patched in a few places, the shower curtain rods are mounted so high as to barely allow the curtain to stay in the tub #once wet#, etc. This is also not a hotel for the tall - the standard lower ceilings of a couple of a few decades ago. Nor is there a shuttle even though it is only 5 miles from BNA #Nashville's Airport#. Basically, this HIE isn't bad it just isn't good.
I say it isn't bad. HOWEVER, and this is a big HOWEVER, if you are in a WHEEL CHAIR, STAY AWAY. I have no special needs, but I can see that this property was NOT designed with wheel chair access in mind. A wheel chair limited patron could access the lobby for check-in, but then would have to go back out and circle to the backside of the building to access the elevators. Handicap parking is in the rear, so that isn't especially egregious, but the breakfast ameneties are located off of the lobby, which is not accessable by the handicapped without entering from the front lobby doors. Since there is no handicapped parking in the front, I'm guessing the expecation is that people in wheelchairs will navigate the lovely hills of the parking lot outside the hotel to get back around to the front of the hotel for breakfast? I'm surprised this passes muster for minimum code/disabilities act? Even though it didn't impact me personally, I found myself extremely disappointed for those less fortunate.

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by Mulvaney4 Good Service but uncomfortable beds.
The staff at this location are very friendly and helpful. I was greeted warmly and checkin was quick. The room was clean but the bed felt like I was sleeping on plywood (very hard/uncomfortable) and the pillows were pratically nonexistent.
The bathroom was small but clean. The breakfast was acceptable.

This was our 3rd stay at this property. Good location for us to be near family at TNU. Tony at front desk was very helpful when making the reservations and at check-in.
Also, the young lady that was working at front desk on day of check-out was great too (didn't get her name). The lady at the breakfast area was very friendly and did a great job too.
Hope to stay with you again.

The desk clerk greeted us promptly and was extrememly helpful. The room was clean and comfortable. The location was perfect for us - traveling south (Florida) to north (Indiana) - on I-24 which connects to I-65 nearby. Breakfast service was excellent and the selection was very good - good coffee (important!) and nice selection of hot/cold foods. And of course the Holidy Inn Cinnamon rolls!

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by DonDarlene Right price & right location
Holiday Inn Express at Spence Lane is just far enough from town to be priced right. Less than one mile from I-24 & I-40 with large rooms and a great attentive & friendly staff. It has been my choice for the past 3 years when I travel to Nashville on business. Try it one time & you will make it your hotel when you are in the Nashville area. Oh, it is quite close to the airport as well.

The room was clean and bedding was of good quality. Everything in the bathroom was in good working order. The breakfast was good for a hotel. Lots to choose from. The front desk people treated us very well. Gave us bottled water when we got there and when we came in at night.

My computer virus program was blocking the internet. A member of the staff was very knowledgeable about computers and got me connected to the internet. He said he went to the same college as me (TTU). I seen him that morning greeting customers in the breakfast area. The staff was very friendly and knowledgeable of the area. Room was clean but wish there was a fridge and microwave in every room. Also the front door is also a pain. They need sliding automatic doors.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by BamaPel very old property
We picked this hotel since it was near Interstate and was a Holiday Inn. It always has a high standard. In this case the property looked about 40 years old. There was holes in the ceiling and had an old funky smell to the room. My wife turned on the water and it was rust colored for about 5 minutes. The area that the hotel is located in is an industrial run down area. Was afraid all night the car would be broken into. This is not a hotel I would recommend and do not know how they have kept in the Holiday Inn chain.

The overall property is not bad.
However, the beds are very uncomfortable!!!!!!!
I could count every coil in the 2 beds in my room from the inprints on my back. Not much pillow top left.
It was tough to get any sleep on these matresses.
