“A Nice Hotel But Waited A Very Long Time For A Clerk To Show Up”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014

This was my first stay at this location. My sister-in-law and I both stayed overnight. We walked into the lobby and walked around and saw nobody. We waited and waited and waited. After 10-15 minutes, I walked into the restaurant and waited for the server to take a break from speaking with his customers, again, several minutes. He told me to walk up to the counter and lean on it and someone would be out to help me. I did this and sure enough, the clerk came out. Very poor service. There must be some type of activation switch near the counter but nobody off of the street would know to do this. The room and hotel itself were very nice and the only complaint was I could hear doors open and shut continually through the night from the other guests. My sister-in-law enjoyed her stay as well.

This hotel is updated, comfortable, and convenient, with nice amenities. The rooms are spacious, and have refrigerators. It is also very affordable. On our most recent stay at this hotel, I shared with another guest of the same wedding, which took place in Nashville. There was plenty of space for all of us. Because we were traveling on a weekend, there was virtually no traffic between Cool Springs and Nashville, so the close proximity to the interstate was great. After the reception, we went to a pub in the Cool Springs area, just a mile away from the hotel.

I will stay here again.

Visiting family and this fit the bill. Central location, off interstate but no noise from road. Everything you need within two miles. Rooms nice, comfy bed, staff friendly. Quiet at night. Everything you need with a Starbucks, small Bistro and market. Nice property.

Stayed one night here to break up a long drive. Wish we could have stayed longer. Excellent hotel with spacious well appointed rooms. We tried the bistro restaurant and were not disappointed. My wife had a modified Reuben sandwich which was very tasty and made as requested. The hotel location was close to I-65 and convenient to Nashville attractions. I definitely recommend.

This hotel is right off of Interstate 65 and only minutes from a mall, shopping and just about any dining you can imagine, yet its in a more corporate area and very quiet. Plenty of free parking, and the staff was very welcoming and helpful from the moment we arrived. We thought the bedding was especially comfortable and the room was immaculate. Never heard anything outside of our room, which is always a bonus at a hotel. As with all Courtyards now, they have the "Bistro" downstairs, which is a nice in a pinch but a little overpriced. Highly recommend.

Very nice hotel. Hotel staff all very friendly and will go out of their way to help. I was in a jam and missed my bus while I was staying there, Billy, at the front desk went out of his way and made arrangements for me to get to my event as quickly as possible. Thank you Billy! The housekeeping staff did a wonderful job and even took care of a special request I had. The only less than spectacular part of my stay there was the wait staff in the restaurant on premises. They were not very attentive.

My family and I recently stayed here for one night. The staff was great and the hotel was very clean. This hotel is in a great location for dining, shopping, etc.

We were in Room 409 which is on the top floor, has a small balcony, and is near the elevator. It was a great location and we never heard any noise while in the room.

I should add that my son wanted to swim, so I took him down to the indoor pool and was very impressed. Towel animals decorated the nice furnishings near the pool and the entire area was very clean and well kept.

The lobby area was also very nicely decorated, comfortable and clean.

Room Tip: Room 409 is on the top floor and has a small balcony with a good view for people watching.
