“Nice Option for Opryland Area”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2014

Stayed at this hotel during CMA Fest. If you want to stay in this area to see Gaylord, Grand Ole Opry and Mall, this is perfect as a more economical option rather than the GIGANTIC Gaylord. They have a free shuttle from the airport which is nice. And, also a shuttle that takes you to Gaylord and will pick up from there. Short walk over to Mall or Grand Ole Opry.

Nearby places to eat and drink, listen to music which are all a very short walk. Nashville Palace is just about next door. And, the liquor store which IS next door does save some money if you want to have some cocktails.

This hotel appears to be a bit older Express than some. Is very well kept. No outdoor pool which would have been nice as they only have an indoor pool. And really no where to sit outside in the sun if you want to do that. Just one small table out back facing the "swamp" which is probably not so nice at sunset with mosquitoes.

But, that being said - rooms were clean. Amenities were fine. Nice hot breakfast that was being refilled constantly. Washer and dryer for $1.00 each on the main floor. Rooms are not all that quiet. Every morning I knew what time it was by the "guy" by me getting up to use the facility and I could hear the entire process. Didn't really like that part. Otherwise, service is good here. They seem to truly care about doing a good job for their customers.

This area is the "old" time country music so Charlie Pride, Johnny Cash, type music is played at the bars. If you want the newer country music, than downtown Broadway might more be your style.

Great hotel to stay at when in Nashville. The shuttle to downtown was great to use. Close to shopping opry mills you can walk to Opryland hotel great place to see. The breakfast was very good our room was very clean. The hotel staff was great. Wish the pool was outside so you can enjoy the warm sun and could use a hot tub as well. We will stay here again next time we visit Nashville.

We checked into the Holiday Inn for 3 nights. The hotel rooms were very clean the beds very comfortable which offered soft and firm pillows. Good variety for breakfast. Great Shuttle bus pick up on the hour to downtown and pickup every half hour for return to hotel. Staff were pleasant and helpful. Shopping, restaurants and bars with live music within walking distance. It has indoor swimming pool. A litle pricey but we were on vacation. Although it is approx 20 minutes from downtown Nashville the shuttle service was excellent so saved parking and driving late in the evening. Great stay the only suggestion is to have another sitting bench outside.

Room Tip: We were on 2nd floor and the view was of a pond. Quiet and at end of hall near stairway if one want...

Good hotel base for a 2 night stop over in Nashville. Close to shopping mall and a few bars providing live music which was good.
Shuttle bus service to downtown Nashville was really good and provided an easy option to get there without having to drive. Meant a wee refreshment could be taken whilst watching the live music.
Staff were helpful and basic breakfast was substantial
Hotel was clean and tidy.

We Stayed at the Holiday Inn Express on our recent visit to the States. It was a pleasant hotel and breakfast OK.

it was convenient to Opryland and we walked over there for a visit. It wasn't so convenient to get downtown, but we had a car so it wasn't a problem

This hotel was less than accommodating. We were assured that our group would be given adjoining rooms AND That they would be available for early check in when we arrived, neither accommodation was made. The rates were sky high due to it being the NCAA women's tournament and the service was some of the worst I have had. The front desk was responsible for "calling" several taxi's that never arrived as well as a shuttle that we waited well over 45 minutes for to return us to the airport (luckily the airport was a breeze). We were also MUCH further away from downtown than expected. When we next visit Nashville we will spring for something a nicer.

We stayed here on a quick stop over - great for the big shopping mall, cinema complex and Opreyland - literally a few minutes drive or could even walk there without any hassle. Less useful if you want to visit the downtown music and bar area as it is several miles away.

But otherwise the usual quality offering from Holiday Inn Express - great sized comfortable room - free wi-fi and quality service at a good price.

Some other restaurants and bars also within a short walking distance

Breakfast not brilliant but otherwise a good deal - would recommend this property

Room Tip: Try to get a local coupon book that includes attractive rates for this and other hotel properties...
