I travel quite a bit in business across rural west Tennessee and there little in the way of hotels between Nashville and Memphis other than Jackson. Usually I try to stay at brand name hotels but the one exception is the Commodore Hotel which is about 25 minutes south of I-40 on Route 13 if you exit just east of the TN River at Hurricane Mills. While the ideal location for business travelers is a spot right on the interstate, I have found the short jaunt to certain off-the-interstate towns well rewarded.
I first ventured into Linden last fall and got to stay at the Commodore Hotel and eat at its cafe/restaurant. The staff was great and the owners went out of their way to meet any of my needs. The hotel has WiFi as well. It is also handy because Linden is about an hour from west Nashville rather than 2 hours from Jackson. This makes morning meetings in Nashville a little simpler to hit. For those paying their own expenses, the cost of a room at the Commodore is about half of a brand name hotel in Jackson. The rooms are very spacious, clean, and best of all, its quiet because there is no interstate drone.
If you are in the tourist mood, Linden is a cute little main street town with an art district and a few interesting shops. The 25 minutes to and from the Interstate is very scenic and for me as a business traveler, the ride was a great break from the interstate monotony. Enjoy!
