Historical Traveler Reviews Holiday Inn Opryland Airport Nashville
Great location to everything
It was a nice hotel for the price - $50 a night from priceline. The restaurant was nice for breakfast. The waitress' were very helpful. The convience store was pricey and not a good selection. The hotel lounge Ivories was nice- live entertainment. The pool was being repaired so it disappointed me. I had a king room on the 11th floor and it was nice and clean and I am picky about cleanliness.
Cancelled next reservation at this place
was here for one night in August 2004. Priceline room, but I am a Gold Ambassador Member of Priority Club. Just a bad hotel. Lights didn't work. Just OLD and in DESPERATE need of an overhaul. I had a reservation here for two weeks later and I came home and cancelled it and am going to try to Holiday Inn Express down the road.
What is wrong with this place?
We stayed at this hotel from 7/19 - 7/21 and the whole time we couldn't figure this place out. I kept asking myself "is this really a hotel or just a bunch of people running around and a staff with no rules and no organization?" The answer came to me after speaking with several other couples I met at a nearby restaurant. Let me note: those people checked out after one night and went somewhere else. The ANSWER: complete unorganization. This is not a three or two star hotel, it is a place where you and your screaming kids can do anything you want. I can go into details, but who wants to read my opnion all day. Let's just say, if you are used to nice places, clean rooms and ammenities, good food, well behaved guests, and a courteous staff, then go somewhere else.
If you like rooms where AC doesn't work, broken beds and t.v., and the simple, "I dont know" from employees - then this place is for you. I have renamed this hotel "Holiday Inn Select - the only place in town where you can fart, drink a butt load of beer and burb really loudly and we say "cool dude".
My recommendation, go somewhere else.
Final, final note: after complaining and threating the manager I would talk to her GM, we were put into a suite. Now you would think, awesome a suite, but wait you need to understand an out house in Alabama would be better accomodations.
Stay downtown at one of the hotels. You will have a better time.
later - I need to go drink a butt load of beer to forget this place....
Super clean nice and friendly!
Stayed here for 4 nights June 17-21, love it! Super clean very spacious room! Very friendly staff, and only minutes from all attractions. Could not ask for better for the price (got it for $38 a night on priceline) Clean bathroom, and lobby also, they have thermostat settings in rooms for temperature control, also no floor a/c. Actual a/c like your home! Only one complaint they only have like 20 channels on their tv. Also the pool is indoor and is heated.....it's too heated! I'm from florida and have never been in a pool that hot!
Stayed again, still nice
stayed there again a friday night last month. Still nice and relaxing, if the bed was a little harder. nice people and great bargain if you book online in advance.
So-so Hotel...not on the par with other Holiday Inn Select
My wife and I went there in March 2004. They couldn't find my reservation, then they could, one of the 4 elevators was not working all weekend, the hallways were full of dirty dishes until I spoke to someone about it. Numerous complaints from others in our group about faulty AC. Room decor was fine. Breakfast buffet and service was expensive, and awful. Not what I expect at a HI Select.
The Money Pit
After quite an adventure getting to the hotel due to construction, my husband & I had hoped for a relaxing Valentine's Day weekend (2004), however, it was nothing but that. The entire room smelled of mildew.
After a few minutes, we discovered the issue. An old, nasty shower curtain. We tried to open a window, to no avail, so resorted to turning on the air conditioner - in February, mind you. The smell never did leave the room. In addition to that, only one of the two room keys worked, we were given 3 pillows (as flat as pancakes) for a king size bed, no extra blankets, mildew and mold in the bathroom tiles, only a few tissues were left in the box, only one of the two electrical outlets worked in the bathroom (so if you run the hairdryer, that's all you can do), there was no high-speed internet access as advertised on their website (instead, just a modem which you are assessed $1 for the outside call, if you're lucky enough to have a local number), and after standing in line for over 15 minutes (I wish I was exagerating) we finally got one drink each. Under any normal circumstance, i would have requested a room switch, but considering it was a sold-out holiday weekend, this would be out of the question. Definitely not worth the money - not even the internet discount rate.
was at the holiday Inn select in sept 2003 for the yahoo chat meet, it was a very good hotel, helpfull staff, clean rooms, quiet at night, never had a complaint and will be going back again in sept, i think this hotel is a 3 star min, maybe as good as a 4 star
Got this hotel on a 3* Priceline bid. Very disappointing. Should not be in the same category as the Sheraton Music City. Old, dirty, noisy. Not pleasant. Kids seem to be having a great time in the lobby pool though.
Opryland great / holiday inn select, yuk!
Dirty rooms: bathroom shower curtain black mold, floor extremely dirty -- lots of dirt especially in corners and under furniture. Not well-defined smoking/non-smoking areas in commons and restaurant.Missing doughnuts? Housekeeping helped themselves to a crispy-kreme doughnuts that we brought in for breakfast.Pan-handlers (5:00AM): Experienced pan-handlers in parking lot. Heard it was a common problem in the area. Suggest that they look into problem.

... its legacy as a temple before becoming the church of country music. We watch a techie tune a grand piano for Diana Krall later tonight. A and I agree we like her only in small doses and so stick with our plan to attend the show at the GOO instead.
On our way back to Opryland, well out of the city, we drive through a suburb; a guy standing on ...
... mini Roma tomatoes. Fabulous food, the menu had a huge variety and service was terrific.
We went back to the hotel after strolling through all the tourist shops along the harbour waterfront. We tried local wine and beer in the RedBar in the Lobby served by Aaron. He was very friendly and recommended some local restaurants. He was very generous with the wine served. I tried a Knob Hall Maryland Vital Blanc which was pretty good, similar ...
... drawl as they entered a yellow taxi cab, her casually, noncolantly, and he in a funny country bumpkin kind of manner. While sitting beside a fountain, an older black man was walking and dancing in an empty concrete park, he seemed happy and in his own world, as he proudly strutted with chest high on the brink of abstract ...
... 160; It was our turn and we said Australia and one of the band members said you pronounced it too well it's "Stralia" which I suppose was exactly how we do say it. The band took requests from the crowd. We could have listened to them for a lot longer but more exploring awaited us. After this, we were wondering along the streets and came across the Johnny Cash Museum - Dave was in heaven. Fantastic little place. Would have been good to share this ...
