Really chill place to stay! Out of all the uptown, high energy part of town. We were able to order pizza & walk to plenty of bars, grills & herb shops. Bathrooms were almost always availible! Recommend 100 percent.

This hotel is really great for a budget traveler. Rooms and staff are nice. Close to a lot of famous tourist places. Very clean. Bed was comfortable. They even let you use their music studios if they are not being rented out by paying customers....More

I booked Music City Hotel for the location and generally good reviews I found online. As a solo female traveler, it was a safe and comfortable stay. The hotel is old and sort of a “hole in the wall” spot, but perfect for musicians/music enthusiasts...More

First of all not accepting money is absurd. I had to pay on my credit card and I do not like it. Beds and pillows uncomfortable, room extremely hot, no fan and neither window is open. amenities with a bad smell and an uneducated attendant.More

Super friendly staff, really went beyond what I’d expect to make sure we were all comfortable. The Nerdlinger crew and I really enjoyed the stay, the rehearsal rooms were schmick and the beds comfy AF.
