“Nashville Fun”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 21, 2013

We stayed at this Drury Inn on our first trip to Nashville. This was a quick weekend visit with my husband, daughter and 3 year old granddaughter and we could not have been happier. The hotel staff was so helpful. We asked for directions and they printed out all the directions to all the spots we wanted to see. The hotel is located by the airport and is in a perfect location to see everything. We weren't more then 15 minutes to downtown and all the sites we wanted to see. Also very close, no more then 10 minutes to Opry Mills and the Grand Ole Opry House. We love staying at Drury Inn's for the extras like the complimentary evening kick-back cocktail hour, which after lunch out during the day was enough food to count as dinner and the breakfast buffet. Really helps save money when breakfast and dinner are pretty much included in your hotel stay. My granddaughter really enjoyed the pool area. But I think the biggest thing we were impressed by was the staff. On Sunday morning Tim, whom I think was the manager on duty that day came around numerous times during the breakfast buffet to see if we needed anything, to clear things off the table for us, and to visit with our 3 year old granddaughter. I saw him stop at most of the tables to ask if anyone needed anything. Also thought it was great that as the breakfast area got busy and there were no more tables they opened up a conference room for people to sit and eat. All around we really enjoyed our visit and plan on returning again both to Nashville and this Drury Inn.

This is he second time I've stayed at this hotel. We have been coming to Nashville at least annually for my daughters cheer leading competition. The hotel is actually a modified American Plan hotel. What that means is that they offer breakfast and dinner for the price of the room.
The thing that keeps me from giving the hotel an excellent rating for value and restaurant is managements total unwillingness to have any flexibility in the evening meal hours.
For the last 2 years my daughters' competition has been late. We have to be at the competition before the evening meal starts and stay past the time the meal ends. Last year I asked them to extend the hours to accommodate the 50 - 75 people affected and was told "No, we can't do that." This year i asked again, 1st a supervisor @ 10AM ("The schedule is already made out" I was told) and even spoke to the manager (this conversation took place at 1PM. Plenty of time to call the help and make arrangements) and was given a "No" again. Corporate policy.
I was raised in the hospitality industry, went to college for Hotel Restaurant Management, worked as a F&B Manager for Holiday Inn, Inc., F&B Mgr for a country club, Kitchen Steward at the The Concord Hotel (1200 room American Plan Hotel), in NY. I know this business and have never told a guest "I can't" until I've exhausted all options. I've held cooks over for late arrivals, made up to go boxes of breakfast, lunch or dinners to accommodate guests special requests. This unimaginative manager just seems to find it easier to say "No" than search for an alternative to accommodate the many guests that won't make it on the hotel timetable.
On the positive, I will say that the breakfast personnel are happy, chipper and eager to please, the room was clean, the maid was very nice and all the rest of the personnel had great attitudes. Too bad the manager doesn't follow their example. I even offered to pay the help in cash for their trouble. Would have been much more than they earn on payroll. "Oh, we can't do that".,
If this was just me, I wouldn't even mention this and figure it was okay, I'm only 1 person. But there were easily 50-75 people who were left to fend for themselves after a grueling competition.
I DID advise the manager I'd write this. He was unconcerned. I also advised him I wouldn't return for next competition and neither would a lot of our group, he seemed unconcerned about that too. Maybe they just have so much business they can afford to lose ours. Lucky him.

Loved our deluxe king suite and everything about our stay. We spent five nights here while attending the CMA Music Festival. The hotel was fully booked but our fifth-floor room was clean and quiet. We enjoyed the breakfast buffet--even though it was crowded--and nightly kick-back cocktail hour with complimentary food like baked potatoes and chili! At least three waffle machines were used at breakfast. We had four adults in the suite but felt comfortable with the set-up. The bathroom, located between the two rooms. provided a nice privacy buffer. I was very impressed with the management who cheerfully answered all our questions and frequently asked us about our stay. The shower was quiet (with built-in dispensers for shampoo and conditioner), and the rooms have central air-conditioning rather than the noisy in-room window units that tend to drive me crazy. The refrigerator and microwave were helpful. Property was clean and extremely close to the airport. We made several trips to the airport to pick up and drop off people in our group. There was also a free shuttle service. Other nice features included free popcorn and coffee in the lobby area during the daytime--and an indoor/outdoor swimming pool. The hotel's location was convenient to LP Field, downtown Nashville, Grand Ole Opry and the airport itself--as well as many local dining establishments. A McDonald's is adjacent to the hotel.

More than anything, we enjoyed the staff of the Drury Inn. They were constantly asking if they could help us. We got a great rate. The hotel has both indoor and outdoor pools which was something very important to us. The only reason we did not score the hotel as a perfect 5 is that the pool was out of service for 1.5 days, due unfortunately to a careless guest and their child. We enjoyed the hot breakfast options each day and the kickbacks were great. The room size was perfect and was very quiet for sleeping. We would definitely stay here again.

This hotel is about 8 miles from downtown Nashville. Its a family owned hotel. I was very impressed with the place and the staff. Rooms were clean and updated, and the lobby was very pleasant. We only stayed for one evening because of the mess up that happened at the Sheraton Music City in Nashville. We paid $179.00 for a suite that included 2 beds and a living room. It has a pool that closes at 10 p.m. The price included a full hot breakfast in the morning. After we left the hotel, we went to the Sheraton Music City hotel and I was not impressed. I would highly recommend this hotel, I am sure you will not be disappointed. When in Nashville, you must eat at Diana's on Broadway near 3rd Ave.. Nice cozy place that serves Ice Cream and food.

Room Tip: Have a great meal at Darfon's which is located down the street. AWESOME

Stayed there a few years ago, not a good experience! This time was not bad. The staff was friendly, The room was Clean, The Breakfast was better than some, they had fresh fruit.
They have coffee in every room like others but if you don't want to make it, go to lobby, they have coffee 24/7.
No snake machines for late night snakes to be able to take medication. Have to buy from front desk. They charge 4 times what the snake is worth..
The Jets taking off can be heard in your room.

Room Tip: I was on the ground floor next to Wendy's parking lot. vehicle noise because the parking lot is...

fridge a litte small, used tissue behind the night stand, razor cap left in the bathroom, lots of late night noise in the hallways, smelled a little doggy in the elevator and pool area. which made me wonder? Although it could have been coming from the entrance that connects to the pool area. Some pretty good sized dogs came through. The price seemed a little high also. But on the flip side, I loved the way the beds were made and the tv combo setup, and the little extras, like the easy to reach plugs and the shampoo dispenser. Everything else was nice and clean, meals were good and the staff was nice,
