Hotel was very busy but customer service was still good. Rooms were clean and beds comfortable. The breakfast was hot and contained a good variety to choose from. I have stayed there a few time when in the area on business and the price this time seemed a little high for the region.

We stayed one night at this hotel for the Tough Mudder Nashville race. Our race was canceled on Sunday, so we were bummed to spend so much money for nothing. The hotel was nice. I wish it wasn't so expensive though. I didn't feel like the value matched the price. I mean, it's in the middle of nowhere for $144/night... More

In short the management does not care about your concerns and how you are treated as a customer. All they want is your money and don't care if you return. I will never stay at this hotel again. The Hampton Inn next door knows how to treat their customers and will have my business in the future.

I am on the road about 3 days a week and this was a great hotel for all you business travelers. The hotel is right off the exit and is new! The rooms are clean and well taken care of. The staff is incredibly friendly and welcoming! I highly suggest this hotel for weekday travel!

After our first stay last year on the way back from Florida, we already knew we wanted to stop overnight at this Holiday Inn Express. And again, we were not disappointed. Room was clean and fresh.

I've stayed at a number of these. Some are better than others, but none of them are bad. This one was perfectly acceptable for the two days I had to stay there. Very convenient to the Interstate.
