While driving through Nashville, I needed a place that would accommodate me at 9am for early check-in as well as a place that was pet-friendly. Considering I had stayed at a BEAUTIFUL Red Roof Inn located in Locust Grove, Georgia a few days prior, I decided to go with the option located in north Nashville (Goodlettsville) since I was not feeling well and was traveling with a pet. This property is suitable, but certainly is not the NEXT GEN of Red Roof Inn's. It is a typical "motel" with rooms you access from the exterior. It is obvious the owners are trying to do renovations. My room was room #208 and had outdated decor. However, considering I wasn't feeling well and had my mini-dachshund with me, it was suitable to take a nap, shower, and then move on. The employees I encountered in the morning when I asked for an early check-in were very friendly. However, when I checked out at approximately midnight, the employee seemed a bit "put off" that I wanted to check out because she hadn't had a chance to do the night audit and wouldn't be able to give me a receipt. Furthermore, she informed me that additional taxes/fees would make my room charge considerably more. This is what surprised me. Considering I stayed at a Red Roof Inn Next Gen location in Locust Grove, Georgia just a few days prior and paid $65.50 for an absolutely beautiful room and now paid $82.30 for an outdated room with indoor/outdoor carpet, wooden creeky stairs, etc, I was a bit surprised. Another thing that surprised me with the rate is at the Locust Grove location, the employee was very up front with me about the rate, "The rate is $58.02 but will come to $65.50 with all taxes." When in Goodlettsville, TN that was never mentioned. Hence, when I signed in at 9am and was told the rate would be $64 but then get a bill for $82.30, I was not pleased. Perhaps if the accommodations would have been as nice as the Locust Grove location, I wouldn't have blinked an eye at paying the $82.30. However, $82.30 is expensive considering the conditions of this particular Red Roof Inn. On a positive note, as mentioned earlier, the morning employees were friendly, it is in a safe location, and close to restaurants & various shopping centers/malls, and is pet friendly. I believe $70.00 tops is a fair price to pay for this location.
If you are going to stay at a Red Roof Inn, make sure it is a "Next Gen" location. Otherw...
