For the last few years, we have made it a point to stay at the Best Western Chaffin Inn in Murfreesboro, Tennessee, on our way to and from our June/July vacation in Sarasota, Florida. It's only an eight or nine hour ride from Chicago but a very long 730-mile trip from Sarasota. But we think it is worth it. We remember when Murfreesboro was a one-Holiday Inn town and the only reason for stopping there was to visit the Stones River battlefield. How times have changed. The exit at 78-B is one of the busiest we have ever encountered on our travels. Virtually every hotel chain and every restaurant chain and every gas station chain is represented along the road, even White Castle. There also are several malls with large department stores and motion picture theaters. So we chose to stop at Best Western Chaffin Inn, which is conveniently located off I-24. While some visitors have complained of highway noise, we have never had an issue with it. Nor with noisy tourists. Our room was clean and comfortable--hey, the shower was wonderful and doesn't that always count for something?--with excellent television reception and many cable channels. We arise too early to take advantage of the continental breakfast--I'm told the waffles was special--but our 3 a.m. wakeup worked like a charm. There is an outdoor pool for visitors to enjoy. In the summer, a lot of girls softball teams frequent the Chaffin Inn. Security keeps the noise down. We've never had a difficult time sleeping. And the air conditioning, unlike some hotels, is quiet and very efficient. Never too cold. And Chaffin Inn is close to several popular restaurants, including Red Lobster and Ruby Tuesday that we have found to be very inviting. Murfreesboro is a good location because it makes for a relatively short trip to Chicago going north and Tallahassee, Florida, going south.
