“Living in Nashville take it from me”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2009

I have never stayed here but I know the area and I drive past this place..a lot. Take it from me. DO NOT STAY HERE. Reading the other reviews have only made my opinion of the place even worse. Driving on the INTERSTATE you can tell the place needs to be demolished in order to get better. It has crack hotel written all over it that reading these reviews are not shocking. Living in Nashville all my life, there are better hotels to stay in and taxi rides are $10 from mostly anywhere if you are out of town for a game or just visiting the city. There are a few hotels that are MUCH better just down the road. All you can see from the interstate is gross curtains basically falling down in the windows and grime. If you are not convinced, stay there at your own risk..but take it from someone that knows hotels around here. I even looked at the hotel website, it looks NOTHING like the real deal!!! I will upload pictures of my own if I can very soon.

Have you ever wanted to stay in what can only be described as a decommissioned zoo exhibit? Or needed the crack addled eye of a front desk clerk to keep people out after the 9pm visiting hours have elapsed? Then try the Stadium Inn hotel that rents two beds per room but demands only one occupant. People toss around words like ----hole and crack den so casually these days that it’s nice to see that there are still businesses willing to go that extra mile and really stand out from the rest of the competition and redefine/exemplify those terms. Let's take a moment to appreciate some of the finer points of the Stadium Inn. You'll find basic amenities like towels, soap, and toilet paper conspicuosly absent in the rubble of what passes for a human habitat. The bathroom sink and counter (at least the room I stayed in) will be half removed from the wall clinging precariously at a 20 degree angle preventing the seat of the toilet from staying in the upright position. Very nice touch! If your place is like mine, than you'll find a toilet seat that looked like Paul Bunyan tried to put a fire out on it with his axe. I can't speak for all rooms, but the bathroom floor is more curled than a taco shell and had the same consistency. Perhaps you find towel racks mounted on a wall to be 'too upscale' than you'll be glad to know that this towel rack was ripped from the wall and left to dangle at an odd angle. If you're like me and have always been a fan of This Old House you'll appreciate the tattered remnants of wall paper held in place with the copious stains that adorn those areas that haven't been shredded - very DIY. For those third world refugees or anyone not quite used to the idea of carpet they have ensured that an avalanche of dirt and grime awaits you in your room. I was so touched by this that I planted some corn there so you should have some room service seeing how there was no phone book or any other means of procuring food. The Stadium Inn is a challenging experience that really makes an occupant think about how nice it is to have non waterstained furniture. Speaking of furniture, lets dwell on the bed situation as part of the unique Stadium Inn experience. One bed was two mattresses stacked upon each other while the other consisted of a shattered box spring that, like everything else in the room, made the bed slope at about a twenty degree angle. It was like entering a Dali painting with a lot less thought, care, and safety involved. Unfortunately, you may not find the same thing in the remainder of their rooms because I was assured that 'this was one of the nicer rooms' . Of course for my money nothing can top a headboard dangling menacingly over your head as you try to sleep, which you can experience at the Stadium Inn. Yes with the stale stench of cat urine in the air and the inability to open a window the Stadium Inn has seen fit to outift each room with a state of the art air conditioning system that is wholly incapable of removing that delightful aroma. Drink it in people that is history your smelling. As the your night wears on and the natives become restless you may want to try the cracked view out of a peep hole. Nothing says secure like a broken peep hole covered with some kind of substance. If you're not saying, "gee I wish I could come and go as freely as the cockroaches that are scurrying in and out of my room" than your home; otherwise you probably should run. Of course if none of these things are present or if your not moved... to flee, call down to the front desk and see what they can do for you. I am guessing not much unless there is crack involved.

In summary this experience could only be improved if they tore the building down and rented out the rubble as rooms. It would probably be safer and cleaner. Come on even Norman Bates cleaned his hotel. A beaver lodge has better craftsmanship and it's made of mud and sticks! I do not recommend this place for boarding your pets much less as a dwelling for humans. As one review stated - just run! Finally, I ran out of film taking pictures and had the sinking feeling that the last person in the room doing so had a badge on.

I would have preferred to stay in something more upscale, but I was short on cash after traveling the states. The staff was mediocre, the bar in the hotel was a plus. I was able to walk to the downtown district from the hotel.

This is the nastiest place I have ever stayed, If you know what is good for you, you will not stay there. Drugs are a constant problem, and the staff are really rude...

Too bad their isnt a review lower than terrible because this stadium inn is horrible. It is a complete rundown insect infested h___hole. I don't see how it meets codes, obviously it hasn't been inspected. It looks like a drug operattion. But i looked up who ownes it and the owners are Tommy Thorneberry not Bill DeShears. THis isn't a place to let your dog live.

DISGUSTING!

Having lived in Nashville all of my life you would think that I would have already happened upon this "gem".

Having checked into this hell-hole with plans to stay a few weeks, I observed the following within minutes of check-in: a front-desk employee screaming profanities at a guest / an obvious drug deal by the elevator / 2 guests who approached me asking for money for soft drink machine / mold all over the bathroom walls, tile, floor / an inoperable phone / mold in the living area / light fixtures - apparently original Edison's - that were poorly maintained and had hazardous patchwork re-wiring.

Upon attempting checkout, I also was given a dose of the desk clerk's profanity-laden wrath. I fled for the safety of my car when the language became threatening and never went back even for my refund.

Without exception, the worst hotel experience of my life.
