Ramada Nashville Downtown

... good to eat and the promoter said if you’re in the south you need to have some good ole’ BBQ. We headed in and found the only lonely table towards the back of the tight squeezed tavern. At the entrance was a young country sole hooked up to the microphone and webcam playing requests for tips. The early twenty-something female bartender asked us what we were drinking and I requested water and would never have guessed Jessica would order a Coke. The ...

flight was no exception. I had my sea bands on, not sure if they really help
but they made me feel better. Everyone else was drugged up on Dramamine. We
were a little late arriving to New Orleans because the winds were so bad. At
one time the Captain came on and said that we were flying right into 130 mph

I know I haven't updated my blog for ages! and for this I am sorry!
I am still alive and well, and I am back in Nashville, Tennessee!
Right since the last time I blogged this is what I've been up to....
I arrived in Nashville on 14th June, and like I said before, I was so relieved to find that there were people to talk to! The hostel I stayed in turned out to be the best yet! mainly for the people I met there and for the general atmosphere ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Ramada Nashville Downtown
Access to the motorways and stadium are good but its not exactly "Downtown" as you'd expect. Its walkable but we're quite the walkers and found it a little struggle. Free web access is available from the local library. In the room the aircon made horrible noises in the night and leaked everywhere, soaking our clothes at one point.... we weren't offered an alternative room even though there must have been plenty with it being out of season. We did take advantage of the tour buses they run daily to the Opry and had a fantastic time. All in all an ok budget place to stay but a little disappointing, I don't think I'd visit again.
Not a good experience
My husband and I stayed at the Ramada Inn Express at the Stadium September 10, 2004. We were very pressed for time at our arrival so we basically checked in, dropped our luggage and left. After a show and dinner we came back to the room and looked around. There was a large (probably 18x18) spot of mold on the bedroom ceiling, paint chips along the wall, and sticky stuff on the night stand. The bathroom was no better -- either the toilet or sink was leaking, the faucet handle came off in my hand and the wall covering was coming off in large chunks. Because it was about 1:00 am, we didn't notify management. At check out, I complained and was told there was nothing they could do (and really didn't seem all that interested in the problems with the room). I contacted Expedia where I made the reservations -- they were very helpful, however, management at the hotel refused to refund any part of my payment because I didn't complain at the time (1:00 am). Apparently if I had they would have moved us to another room. I wonder why they put anyone in a room like that in the first place. My recommendation would be to stay somewhere else, it definately wasn't worth the $85.00.
I had a family emergency come up, and had to cancel my trip a day ahead of time. I tried calling to cancel my hotel reservation before the 4pm deadline. Since I sat on hold for over a half hour - I missed the deadline by minutes. The hotel still charged me a full night stay as a penalty. This is a busy weekend, where Kenny Chesney was playing and the Titans were in town. Every place in town was booked, and I know they were able to re-rent the room. I will never stay there - nor will I recommend it to anyone. I travel to Nashville several times a year, and will make it a point to make people steer clear of this place.
Great place to stay if your going to a titans game! It's directly across the street from the stadium. It's right off the interstate and very easy to find. Continental breakfast was nice, and staff was polite. Bathroom could have been a little cleaner, but overall a nice place to stay.
Good and Bad
Although in general our stay (5 days) at the Ramada was "ok", we had some surprises. Never having visited Nashville, I thought by "downtown" this meant being within walking distance to "downtown". This hotel is not. Also the first room we checked into had a strange smell to it, the front desk person was quick to accomadate us and gave us another room promptly. We choose a pool view room, which are all smoking rooms...and usually I would be very against this, but these rooms seem to be a little more spacious and also have 2 doors (one leading out the the hall and the other leading to the pool area). We burned candles to take away the smoke smell, but it was nice for my partner as she smokes and could walk outside the 2nd door to do so.
The room was clean and housekeeping did a great job, although the over-all feel of this hotel is somewhat unclean ( I think because it's older).
Hwy access is GREAT and the small drive to the downtown area is not bad at all.
For a Titans game this would be IDEAL as the stadium back and lot is right across the street!
Also The Trap, restaraunt and bar/club which is right down the street had the BEST ribs ever and friendly service!!
Close to Broadway but not Downtown prices
Stayed here May 26 and 27 as a cheaper alternative to downtown hotels.In this respect location is good with Broadway and Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum no more than 15 minutes walk away acroos the Stadium car park and new pedestrian bridge and while there were few people about we did not feel we were in an unsafe environment.Staff in hotel were friendly and helpful and had we booked direct on the day we could have enjoyed a rate of $61 compared to the prebooked Expedia rate of $ 71 which given the location is good.The hotel itself is a little dated with dingy corridiors and rooms which have heavy dark furniture but the room was clean and functional and not near the guitar shaped indoor pool which clearly is a noisy area .Incidentally the shape of the pool makes it useless for lane swimming.An adequate self service continental breakfast is included in the rate.Overall an average hotel which scores a higher assesment due to its excellent position as an alternative to overpriced downtown hotels.
We really enjoyed our stay. The price was excellent and the staff was very friendly. Rooms were clean and the breakfast was excellent. Very good location.
Great location, loud pool
Stayed at this Ramada Saturday, March 27th. This is a GREAT location -- right at the Interstates, just across the river from downtown. The room was fine. My only complaint -- and it is a big one -- is that my room was on the second floor (lobby floor) right off the pool, and the children playing in the pool were SO LOUD. This was pretty bad in the evening, when we were trying to rest prior to going out. The pool closes at 10 p.m., so it was not an issue going to sleep that night, but even though the pool does not open until 10 a.m., at 7 a.m. the following morning children were already running around the pool area yelling. The problem is that the noise in the pool area really reverberates. So this is a perfectly nice hotel, but ask for a room away from the pool.
Only place to stay for a Titan game
I have stayed at this hotel several times over the past few years and have always enjoyed it.The manger and the staff have been there a long time and they go out of the way to make sure everyone's needs are taken care of. This is the only hotel close to the statium. Visting fans of other teams are not hassled at the hotel during game days by Titans fans unless they are trouble makers. You can display your loyality to your home team and still tailgate in the parking lot with Titan fans and have a great time. Even the house keepers are super friendly. This hotel also draws people who come to the Grand Ole Opry and Fan Fair.
You can walk across the river into the lower Broadway area of Nashville where the tourist action begins on a new bridge for walker only. If you dont walk ,it will cost you $3.50 for a cab. A nice clean friendly hotel in a good location.
Great Pool !!
This is a nice hotel near the interstate so you can get to anywhere from there. The room was spacious and clean. The breakfast was great.
Lots of variety .... even biscuits and gravy. How can you miss when you have a guitar shaped pool ?
