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.

One lane, a rental return lane and I can't remember who I rented the car from last night. Then we saw the 9 rental company signs with different entrances!!! Ok. I decided to drive down the DOLLAR lane as that's who we needed to rent the Mustang from. well we didn't know what was going to happen. Do we arrive and get waived down this lane. ...

... place and head towards Nashville initially on the National Park roads with some great views and an encounter on the road with deer, a squirrel and a snake (about 4ft long) We didnt stop in case it didnt like us!
Into our Super 8 about 15 mins outside Nashville, get cleaned up and changed and a taxi into town (Bob, Ron, Nick and myself) We hadn't seen Dutch Paul all day, so no witty quips to look forward ...
... I had a bit of a dance. Much braver when the bar is empty! Justin was 'encouraged' to buy a tequila shot and have it with one of the dancers.
We finished in Printer's Alley, an alleyway near our hotel filled with bars. We stayed at the Bourbon Street Bar for a while where there were plenty of people - finally! Listened to a decent band with an old, overconfident singer. The guys sitting next to us knew him so introduced us.
