Price and location are great. Reaching over to grab my drink from the bedside table and finding a roach on my cup not so great! Our room wreaked of cigarette smoke. People were knocking on our door at 6:45am, as well as several other times in the morning while we were TRYING to rest and the front desk called the room BEFORE 11am to ask if we were ready to check out.

The room I was given was infested with cockroaches. It was too late to go get another room at another hotel because everything was sold out so i was forced to stay here. Fortunately for me my friend backed out of our trip so i was by myself in a 2 bed room so i stayed in the clean bed because the other reeked of urine. The bedlamp had its power cord spliced together improperly which is a huge safety and fire hazard and the bathtub was constantly leaking. The staff seemed like they didn't really care when i told them all these issues. I do not recommend people staying here.

The mattress topper retains too much body heat, making it uncomfortably warm to sleep. And they forgot to make up the room in 1 of the nights I stayed there.

I love the history about this motel. Floor in our room could be a little cleaner because bottom of my feet were always turning black when I walked around my room. Area isn’t the greatest around the motel especially at night near the gas stations. Staff was friendly and helpful and nice. Best price for a hotel around nashville and not bad for Lyft ride to downtown.
