This is not an easy hotel to find if you are unfamiliar with the area. It's located on Old Poplar Pike which is just below the current Poplar Pike. If you approach it from Poplar Pike don't blink or you might miss the turn off.
The hotel itself is pretty decent -- the rooms are nice, clean and up to date. The lobby is fine and the breakfast area is spacious. Internet is free and a computer is available in the lobby for those that rely on that form of access.
The major downside is the active freight line in back of the hotel. Last night trains ran regularly and I had a bit of trouble getting to sleep. We were in an even numbered room. When you check in you might consider asking for an odd numbered room.
