We found it hard to prise ourselves away from the Doctor's Inn in Galax, not only because the home-made hot breakfast was so delicious, but because boy could Brenda (our landlady) talk! We did however get on the road at around 10am and had some serious miles to cover if we were to reach our pre-booked hotel in Nashville that night …
Howdy ya'll, we've been drinkin’,dancin’,shoppin 217;,shoutin’and eatin’ with the folks that did away with the letter "g". We been to Nashville, Tennessee.
What a great town it was. There was a few sky-scrapery sort of buildings but The District, which is where it all happens, has managed to maintain a small town …
... on a whim I was Googling around looking for the grave of Johnny cash (http://www.findagrave.com/ of course) and let out a girly (err...manly) shout of glee when I found out it seemed to be on the same road as most of the big box stores we were heading too. Scott, always mindful of schedules, voiced some concern that we were on a hard timeline...

... do a little solo. By far the best was this 15 year old girl on the fiddle and singing. She had a really southern accent designed for country and she stole the show. After this I ventured back to Broadway and visited another bar. Then home to bed about 1am kind of tipsy. Was diffidently a massive slap in the face of country music that's for sure. And all night the only song I knew was Sweet Home Alabama. Ha ha. Off to Memphis today for two nights then New Orleans. Good week ...
... afternoon watching ESPN on the box we mosied across to Hooters about 7:30. Although this place is tacky as all get out, the food is good and the beer is cheap; due to having a late lunch we shared an appetizer and a platter, before having the obligatory photo and heading back to our room.
We have a big day planned for tomorrow, Jack Daniels Distillery, Country Music Hall of Fame and a ballgame. So we will probably have to try and get an early ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Nashville-Vanderbilt (Downtown)
I had reserved three separate rooms for my family as a half-way point to Gatlinburg. On our first one-night stay (4/12/06) we had to change one room because, although stated NON-SMOKING was definitely a smoking room. The bed I slept on was terrible. I felt like I was going to roll off of it due to no support at all. The other bed in the room was fine and everyone else in our party had decent beds. There was some mold on the ceiling in the bathroom. The rooms overall were average but definitely needed an update. The indoor pool was extremely warm. The second night we stayed (4/16/06) we had a firmer bed but there was a blood stain on the sheet. (you could tell it had been washed but was still gross!). The pool was a better temperature. This day however, the hot tub was closed (the water looked disgusting). The food at the hotel restaurant was mediocre and priced high. Finally, there was a lot of construction going on around the hotel which made it hard to get to and get out of (the view wasn't too great either).
Very nice Hotel
I felt I was taking my chances after the mixed reviews and I was very surprised and happy with this hotel. Very nice lobby, the room was very clean. Nice shampoo's etc, we had a fridge and microwave. Housekeeping was friendly and accomodating. The beds were comfortable and super great pillows. We enjoyed the buffet at breakfast (tho everything in Nashville is pricey!) and we spent time in Commodore's Bar as well. You can always find a cab and the shuttle was a great plus. I would absolutely stay here again.
Our room had bugs, not in the Watergate sense, but much more literally.
My wife and I sayed at this hotel for only a few nights , but we encountered several problems.
I wish that I picked an other hotel
I stayed in the hotel in May 2005 over a weekend. I booked the hotel through an online website. I thought I had a good deal until I got into my room. The bed/mattress was awful and it aggravated my back problems. Room (particularly the bathroom)was so small and it reminded the hotel rooms in London. Location of the hotel was the only comforting factor. If you have choices, you want to opt for other hotels.
No parking charges. It's not the typical Holiday inn hotel. They call it Select by Holiday inn. Huge difference.
I stayed at this hotel 2 times in 1 week for different conferences. The hotel is centrally located: Vandy stadium is directly behind the hotel, Centennial Park/Parthenon is across the street and "lower Broadway" with all the Nashville tourist attractions is just minutes down the road. Small parking lot in front and huge parking lot in the back that is well lit. There is a medium size outdoor pool. It sits adjacent to the back lot but has a tall privacy fence.
Only complaint I have about this hotel is that if you aren't a smoker ask for a non-smoking floor/room. Staff was very friendly and even let us check in early. Great price for this hotel on priceline.. about $50/night. Not a bad price for the location. About 1/2 a block away from Vandy's Basketball Gym. Good stay!
Great place to say, exactly what a 3 star should be
This is a great place to stay, and reasonable from Priceline $45. Lets see first thing I liked, free parking! Ya for free parking. Great area, the Vanderbilt university is right behind the hotel. The rooms were up to quality with a 3 star and the staff was nice. The best thing, no hassles no problems
This was a former Clubhouse Inn and then Ramada, since a short time it is a Holiday Inn now. It is close to the Interstate exit and easily to reach. Hotel is located on Broadway, only a few block walking distance to many shops and bars or restaurants. Broadway in Nashville is similar to Beale Street in Memphis. The entertainment center of town. It is safe to walk Broadway during night as long as you stay in the well lit areas, there is police on the streets. Holiday Inn has a huge free parking garage and an open air parking lot. The lobby is huge and adjacent are business and conference rooms. A spacious business center in the lobby provides 2 computers with free internet access. The place is clean and very bright, well lit and inviting. Newly remodeld I suppose. Check in was quick and staff was friendly. This hotel provides indoor corridors. Upper levels are reached by 3 elevators. All ways from the parking lot to the elevators are well lit. The hotel room was huge and provided 2 queen beds. It is well lit and clean. There is a desk and a ergonomic chair provided, with free internet access in rooms. The desk is spacious. TV is a big screen one, enough TV channels are provided. There was ironing equipment in the wardrobe. Unfortunately no fridge or safe in room, but you can use safes in the lobby for free. The bathrooms are number one. Newly renovated, all stuff new and clean. And they have real tiles on the floor and the walls! Shampoo, kleenex and soap is provided. The table around the sink is real granite, there are soap dishes at the tub and at the sink. There is a coffeemaker in room with all stuff you need for making your own coffee. Aircondition equipment is all new and very silent. Breakfast is served in a spacious room, suppose it provides seats for 2 busloads of guests. Breakfast is a Holiday Inn express breakfast with eggs, muffins, toast, pastries, cereals, yogurt, fresh fruit... whatever you would expect.
Great place to stay
