Companion fish - check! Lava lamp - check! Rubber Duckie for your bath - check! Random parking-lot chicken roaming about (ok!?!) - check! Pillow menu for comfort (seriously, body pillow, neck pillow, extra firm, extra soft, everything in-between? It's available, just dial 0 and it will be there in a few minutes)- check! Spiritual Menu for religious books - check! Room service - check! What more could you ask for? Oh, how about a comfortable, clean room, large pool (3-9feet), speedy service, friendly staff, video games available in room ($6.95 per hour, too rich for my blood), free wifi (medium strength), best price I found in the Nashville area in August - we paid $119 plus tax, per night through Expedia. We were thrilled with this place, the location was convenient, and the extra , sometimes odd, touches were kitschy and charming. (To the unhappy previous poster, I believe a sense of humor is required to appreciate Hotel Preston's fun!)
Did I mention that 2 very different friends, who don't know each other, both suggested this place as a great stay over for my family?
A few notes on how it could be improved: I didn't love the $50 temporary hold on my credit card, but then I knew I wasn't going to order movies and video games and they did not, so I can understand why it was necessary. There was a mild wiring problem in our room, I reported it to the front desk. There is no cancelation refund. I didn't intend to (and I didn't) cancel, but I like the safety of being able to cancel in case of emergency.
In conclusion, while it is not perfect, I think I could happily spend lots of time in this great hotel, and hope to in the future!
