“5 minutes from Airport /Bargain by Prepaying”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 2, 2013

We 3 ladies enjoyed our 1 night stay in this hotel, and got a ''good bargain'' Booking and ''Prepaying in advance'' for our room on choicehotel.com. We were very comfortable in our King room with sofa bed, and enjoyed our simple self-serve buffet breakfast.
We had a toilet maintenance problem, returning to the hotel late one evening, and called the desk for help. He was up there within 7 minutes, took care of the issue, and making sure we were fully supplied with clean towels, etc, and gone within 12 minutes. We were very happy the issue was solved, and we didn't have to change rooms.
These rooms have been recently re-done, very simple Hotel chic, and very comfortable for the 3 of us.
We would all stay here again, if needed.

Room Tip: We had a side facing room. It was quiet, but you may want to check if rear facing rooms are general...

This is a very nice Comfort Suites property I stayed at recently to avoid staying downtown. The hotel was very clean and the parking lot was well lit and seemed secure. I stayed in a room that had two queen size beds and a pull out sofa as well. The room was very large! The room had two televisions, refrigerator, and two desks which was very helpful. This room type can sleep three adults very comfortably. The internet was sluggish during my stay and the elevators were very slow. Breakfast was slightly above average and the breakfast room was very nice. I will definitely stay here again in the future.

I chose this property based on other contributors' reviews. I was rather disappointed with the quality of the room we had. It was near the pool and the AC unit was very noisy and did not really remove the humidity from the room. The bed mattress was also very soft and sagged to the middle. Lighting in the room was adequate, but used harsh white CFC lamps that had a cold appearance. Breakfast was reasonable, with hot offerings (scrambled eggs and sausages) as well as various pastries and make-your-own waffles. The breakfast area in the lobby is clean and well-maintained. Reception staff were very friendly and efficient, but housekeeping failed to clean our room during our two night stay. The swimming pool is large, but need maintenance to remove the peeling paint from the pool' coping. It's flaking off in pieces and getting in the water (which needs to be changed - its cloudy). This hotel's location is good for driving to the music scene downtown on Broadway (about a 15 minute easy drive).

Room Tip: Avoid room 118 near the pool.

I was in Nashville for business but didn't want to bother with staying downtown, so I decided to stay here because of the reviews and recent remodel. I often use Tripadvisor and have learned to read between the lines with reviews. Honestly, I don't even look at the best/worst reviews. This hotel was very nice. The room was clean and comfortable. The bed was good, not great, but not bad. I would say the only actual negative was that the shower water pressure was a bit lacking. However, that seems to be a common issue in today's world. Got to conserve water and all that. Thanks for a good experience.

Dear Business Traveler and Valued Guest:

Thank you for your recent stay and for reviewing our hotel.

Prior to your visit we had installed new mattresses in 1/2 our newly remodeled hotel. We have the other half ordered and will be here in the next few weeks. We have received very positive feedback about the new ones and hope you will return to try them out some day.

Thanks again for the review, and hope to see you again.

I recently surprised my wife with an anniversary trip to Nashville. (I had to send her to the spa the day before so I could pack her up and hide the suitcases in the attic without her knowing, but, what can I say?...Husband of the Year, I guess!) Anyway, the trip was meant to be half vacation from raising 3 kids and my wife working tirelessly on her Master's, and half scouting trip, as we're considering moving our family to Murfreesboro. After reading several Tripadvisor reviews of hotels in and around Nashville and Murfreesboro, I decided on this hotel. It had everything I was looking for: (primarily) Good price for the amenities, good location (near, but not in the middle of the craziness of downtown), cool updated vibe, and a very big tub.

Here's a run-down of different aspects of the hotel and room. For reference, we stayed in Rm 209 (first room on the right off the elevator):

Remodel -- Hotel was recently remodeled, which was pretty evident, given the property looked well-established, but the inside had an overly clean and updated feel to it. Personally, I might have gone for either much brighter, or much softer lighting in the hallways, and maybe more of a softer paint color on the walls in the hallways, but I didn't sleep in the hallway and the room didn't cost $300/night, so there are some things a person can very easily deal with. Black, Red, and White theme was pretty cool, and my wife really liked the "rock'n'roll" vibe that another Tripadvisor review alluded to.

Staff -- Many reviews have talked about the staff. They're probably right, but I tend to keep to myself at hotels, and don't necessarily WANT someone in my face all the time asking me how things are going and seeing if they can do anything extra for me. I plan my own activities, and make my own dinner reservations, so I rarely need to ask help of the staff. All I need is a fresh set of towels, my bed made, and a pleasant check-in and check-out experience, and I leave a happy customer. For me, staff was pleasantly invisible, room was clean, and breakfast was abundant. Good by me.

Room -- We stayed in a whirlpool suite, which had a couch, coffee table, desk, lamp, dresser, and TV in the first part of the room, then had the sink and bathroom dividing that part from the side of the room with the bed, another desk, another dresser, another TV, 2 night stands, and a closet. Closet had ironing board, and pretty self-explanatory iron. TVs both had HDMI inputs, which allowed us to hook up our laptop to watch Netflix and a Redbox movie (since HBO's evening schedule is pretty horrible). Neat little single-cup coffee maker was convenient and easy to use. Water in bathroom got as hot as you could stand (which my wife loved). We were also pleasantly surprised to see there was a separate shower in the bathroom, in addition to the jetted whirlpool tub. I had assumed all along that there would be, but there's no mention of one anywhere on the hotel website, in any reviews, or in any photos. At the risk of getting very personal, the whirlpool tub was more than large enough to fit two people, and we were able to angle the TV in the room with the couch so that we could leave the bathroom door open while relaxing in the tub and watching a movie, drinking champagne, and eating chocolates. (I highly recommend that romantic little relaxation choice.) Let's be honest, though...a tub like that is not meant for getting clean...that's what the shower's for. The shower was tucked into the corner of the relatively small (cozy) bathroom, and was probably not made to fit two people. I am 5'11", 190 lbs., and my wife is about 5'4", 130 lbs. We squeezed into the shower together (again, sorry if this is too much information, but it's information I would have appreciated reading before booking), and while we didn't have much wiggle room, we made it work, and the small space just made us cozy-up to each other a little more, which is why a married couple would shower together, anyway, so it worked out great in the end. Over to the bed, it was a little hit and miss with me. Before getting married, I was a "2 soft pillows and a mattress that sinks to the floor" kind of sleeper, which my wife was a "1 sturdy pillow and a concrete block to sleep on" kind of sleeper. I've gotten accustomed to the firm mattress we now sleep on, and now sleep and breathe better at night. When I first got in the bed at the hotel, I thought i was sleeping on a heavenly cloud compared to our firm mattress at home. My wife didn't care for it too much, but it's not really something you actively notice while sleeping, because, well, you're sleeping! It was something, though, that by the end of the 3rd day of our vacation we started to feel in our backs, not getting the support we needed. It wasn't anything that caused us undue hardship, or anything, just an incredibly minor irritation. If you're just staying 1-3 nights, it's fine. There were also plenty of electrical outlets all over the room to charge our phones, cameras, and my wife's Kindle, so that was nice. Also, there was a nice size mini-fridge that held several bottles of water, mini bottles of Dr. Pepper, and leftovers from 2 meals. There was also a microwave in the room we used to heat those leftovers to eat while watching a movie.

Breakfast -- 2 Waffle Irons with choice of cinnamon or regular batter. Waffles were delicious. There were also buffet trays daily, one with either scrambled eggs or omelettes, another with either bacon or sausage, and another with biscuits. Some people have raved about the breakfast, others have mercilessly condemned it. Here's how I summed it up to my wife: I would have been disappointed if I had paid $10 for that breakfast. For a breakfast included in the price of the room, it was a fine step above simple cereal choices (which they also had, by the way) or a few baked goods (which they also, also had in the form of bagels, muffins, and a few pastries). There was also coffee, oatmeal, apple juice, orange juice, a few fruit selections, butter, jelly, and syrup. All in all, Breakfast = Good.

Other aspects people have complained about:

Elevator - Yes it's hot. Obviously not connected to any part of the A/C system. If you sleep in the elevator, seek help immediately. If you are like the rest of us and only ride in the elevator for a maximum of 45 seconds, it's incredibly bearable.

Room Divider - Some have complained that the rooms are not well-divided. I say to those people, spend 3x as much at a larger hotel and stop complaining about this very well-valued one.

Pool - Don't know...we had a much more private tub to relax in.

Overcrowded Breakfast area - If you stay at hotels regularly, you'll agree that the breakfast area for this size and price hotel was fairly standard.

Airplane Noises from nearby Airport - First of all, the word "Airport" is in the name of the Hotel...that should be your first clue. Secondly, it was the 4th morning of our stay before we even noticed a single airplane sound. We were on the 2nd floor, and I'm assuming the people who have the most complaints would be on the top floor. I'm also assuming some people are just never happy.

As an overall rating, I'm going to go ahead and give this place a 5-dot (or whatever the Tripadvisor rating system is meant to symbolize) rating. My first instinct was to give the place a 4, because it was great, but wasn't the Gaylord Opryland. Since, though, I have three kids, the oldest in private school, and won't be able to afford to stay at the Gaylord Opryland anytime soon, I want to keep the Tripadvisor rating as high as I can. I was glad to let my wife know that we were staying at the (at the time) #15 rated hotel in Nashville out of nearly 150 places. It definitely deserves a higher rating because of the amenities and location you get for the price of the room. All in all, I feel I made the right choice for our particular needs, and we will likely stay here again when we bring the 3 boys up in a couple years to check out the area they will probably grow up in.

Room Tip: Room 209 was a solid room assignment with a whirlpool tub for 2, a separate shower, and little-to-no...

You sure know how to write a review!

As the manager of Comfort Suites Airport I want to begin by thanking you for taking the time to extensively showcase your 4 nt, 5 day experience and thoughts.

We are glad you enjoyed your Anniversary and whirlpool suite stay, our service and accommodations.

As you mentioned, our breakfast area is standard size for a 94 suite hotel. That said, we do want to let folks know in an ongoing effort to meet and exceed expectations - we are about to add seating for another 14 people.

Thank you again. Hopefully we will see you and the whole family again in the very near future.

Stayed two nights during a recent trip to Nashville. The hotel is convenient to the Grand Ole Opry, to downtown, and to Fontenal. Our room was clean. We had two double beds and a sofa bed. Since we were relatively new to the city, we asked for advice and basic directions to places several times. We always found the staff very helpful and friendly. We were very impressed with every contact we had with Joe. Breakfast was the standard Comfort Inn fare, but what made this breakfast stand out was the cleanliness of the area, upkeep of the buffet, and the overall management of breakfast. A few more tables and chairs would have been nice (area was crowded), but that really wasn't a problem. After visiting several Comfort Suites around the country this summer, I can say that this location is top-notch.
