Historical Traveler Reviews The Inn At Opryland, A Gaylord Hotel Nashville
Not the typical Raddison
Our room was on the outside and noise from traffic was awful, even with the fan running to help mask the noise. Talked with other folks who said that while indoor rooms were quieter, they reaked of chlorine smell from the pool. Morning front desk person was very nice, but afternoon and evening person had a terrible attitude. Hotel was full so finding parking late at night was a challenge. Room is decorated nicely, but bathroom is no bigger than a postage stamp. There is a Cracker Barrel right accross the street, and Opryland Hotel and Opry Mills Mall is walking distance.
Stayed here one night August 2004. Staff was very friendly. Room was a little pricey for the size, but was very clean. Room was a bit overcrowded with furniture..but nicely decorated. Bathroom was really small...but very clean. Interior room was by pool and was loud until pool closed. Alarm clock went off at 5:30 a.m. ...but you can't blame that on the Radisson...but on the previous guest.
There was some noise of running water at 7:30a.m. that never ended before we left at around 10:30. Do not know if laundry was behind room or what was happening.
Doors and walls are thin...so hotel can be a bit noisy. BUT it is a nice and attractive place to stay.
HOWEVER...be warned...we made SHORT LONG DISTANCE CALL and were charged 9.96. THAT was ridiculous.
Applebees buffet was average...but had special for 4.99 including juice and coffe.
Room had nice coffee maker and nice little toiletries, etc.
You can get more for your money and other hotels nearby...but Radisson was nice.
The smell of chlorine from the indoor swimming pool permeates the hotel, and the noise from the pool can be heard till 10 at night. It was so bad, some of the people in our group moved to rooms facing the outdoor walkways, where they heard traffic noise instead. The room was clean and spacious, and there is a free shuttle to Opryland Mills, a huge outlet shopping center with restaurants and a food court. You can't get coffee in the morning in the hotel unless you make it yourself or pay for a full buffet breakfast at Applebee's. I expected more from a Radisson.
What a dump!
We book at the Radisson for five nights, as were attending a conference "across the street "(i.e. 1.2 miles away) at the Gaylord Opryland. Upon arrival we discovered a horde of wanna-be Jon Benet mothers gathered around the pool, attending a seminar on putting their daughters into beauty pageants. Ugh. Even with the door shut, the tv on, and the fan going, we couldn't hear ourselves think as the seminar leader with her microphone blathered on at high volume. We called the front desk and all they said was "Oh is it a problem?" Duh. The bathroom was so small we couldn't even lay a washcloth down between the toilet and tub. And the place reeked of chlorine. We checked out the next day and went to the nearby Guest House Int'l Inn and Suites, where for $10 more we had a 2-room suite with fridge, microwave, free breakfast, lounge with entertainment, and peace and quiet! They also have a free shuttle bus to the Gaylord Opryland. The Radisson is a dump.
We stayed at the Radisson Opryland last week for a few nights, and the location was very convenient for the Grand Ole Opry and Opryland, but the hotel was just average for the cost. The rooms were more basic motel-type than I was expecting for a Radisson. Overall the room was more basic than I expected. It was certainly clean enough, (except for the bedspread which needed a good cleaning)and the indoor pool area was very nice. I guess I was paying more for the location than the room type. I think there are probably better rooms at this hotel for more money, mine was probably the lowest at $89/night.
Nice Place To Visit
We stayed 1 night on April 9, 2004. We have 4 children under age 13.
The beds were a little small, but the rooms were nice. We were in the Atrium on 2nd floor by the pool. Didn't hear anyone when the doors were closed. Pool was nice. Had a baby pool, regular pool and hot tub. My kids loved it. We ate at the AppleBee's. A little expensive. 3 of our kids dinners were 2.99 each -- yet still paid close to $100.00 for other 3 dinners and food wasn't that good. Hotel was very nice, the people were nice, quick check-in and check-out. No waiting for room.
Got lucky and found a parking spot right by the front door. We would stay again. Try to get better deal, though. At 109.00 a night, it was a little pricey; but you can find a better deal on internet. We didn't have that chance. We stopped in and got the room that day -- no reservations.
Less expensive than Opryland
Have stayed at Opryland Hotel 3 times for various conventions and although the interior is lovely the rooms are very average. Decided to try the Radisson this time and the rooms are just as nice at 1/2 the price of Opryland. The Radisson is associated with Gaylord enterprises so a shuttle runs every hour to Opryland Hotel. I enjoy walking and found the walk across the road to be very easy and take about 5 minutes.
At least we could keep an eye on the car!
On our yearly trip together, my mother and I opted for the Radisson Opryland. The staff seemed disinterested in us, and the room was definitely not what we expect from a Radisson. The parking close to the entrance was all reserved for the restaurant, making unloading very difficult. We had a 2nd floor outside room where the noise level from traffic, parking lot, and othere guests was horrible. At least we could keep an eye on the car!It was a 'bare-bones' room - one of the bedspreads was stained, there was no radio, the television remote was bad, there was no coffee maker, towels were thin and worn. Comparable hotels would have had all we needed and offered a Continental Breakfast for the price we paid. Will definitely scratch this one off the list.
Having just retired, my wife and I decided to take in the Grand Ole Opry on a trip North. We signed up on the Internet. We arrived early and found a rather slow check-in procedure in the nicely appointed lobby. We opted for a no-smoking room when we registered more than a month early. It turned out to be an outside hallway on the second floor. The traffic noise was most unacceptable and a large convention group talked loudly on the balcony area until the wee hours. When I mentioned the noise at check-out, the only response I got was, "sorry!" We enjoyed the show, but if we choose to return to Nashville, the Radisson would not be an option.
OK place for basic hotel stay
We spent 3 nights at the Radisson by Opryland on our recent visit to Nashville 3/26/03 - 3/30/03. Room was clean, shower very small, narrow and bed was comfortable. Our room did not face the interior. Ours faced to the parking lot facing Shoney's. Biggest complaint we had was the door was paper thin and every person walking by you could hear them talking, heels clicking on cement, kids yelling, etc. All 3 mornings we woke up to other guests outside getting ready to leave around 6:30 yelling back and forth at each other. Did you check the room, did you get such and such, did you check under the bed, etc. Applebees rest. is located inside the hotel which was nice. Pool area was indoors and looked nice also. Only other complaint was the first day after being waken up several times by the noise through the nonexistant door was the maid staff beating on the door at 7:30 wanting to clean it. Next 2 days we put out the do not disturb sign until we got dressed and left for the day, then turned it around to the please make up room side. Check for specials around the web. We paid half the street rate by shopping around. For what we paid it was well worth the $. If we paid full price we would of been very unhappy.

... I will tell you they have survived, would go again and are wondering when after affects will hit because they also said do not travel for at least 24 hours. By the way, we are en route tomorrow.
After their lunch they picked us up at our arranged destination. An interesting event involving a stop in the middle of the road, a body drag and suitable adjectives. You had to be there! We were off to the Grand Ole Opry.

The next morning we drove 4 hours to Nashville. Nashville is in the Central Time zone so we gained an extra hour when we crossed into Tennessee which was nice. We drove right into the downtown area and parked so we could walk around a little and figure out where things were. There was a lot of free parking which doesn't happen in cities very often so that was nice. We stopped by the Country Music hall of Fame to pick up a ...
... of the red leaves as it it was the end of autumn. It was getting colder and colder the closer we got to Richmond, we had heard on the news that it was due to snow tomorrow but after speaking to Paul he said that it didn't snow in Richmond in November.
Arrived in Richmond in the evening and it is just how I pictured a traditional Americans family street and home would look. There were leaves everywhere. We were introduced to a few of Pauls friends who live in his house ...

Taylor was a 40 year military man who was probably more proud of his military career than his Presidency. He was a military hero, not unlike Grant, or Eisenhower. He fought in the War of 1812 and many Indian wars. You can tell his military pride by his burial. The cemetery is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. It's a National Cemetery, one where all the graves are three-feet ...
