Great location

The staff were extremely friendly and accommodating. The hotel is currently undergoing renovations which didn't really have any impact on our stay. The rooms were very clean and most comfortable. The curtains let in too much light in the morning but it saves on setting an alarm! Our first night was very quiet however the noise travels through the large glass windows easily and it can be noisy when people are walking along the outside of your room. Our second night was extremely noisy due to the inconsideration of a few guests and we got very little sleep. The breakfast room is a very popular spot and it can be difficult to find a table. We grabbed our stuff and ate our breakfast in our room one morning. The ladies serving breakfast did an amazing job. They were cheerful, helpful and made you feel much more upbeat about the day. The location was ideal for us and we could easily walk to everything we wanted. We would stay there again.

Good place, friendly staff

We stayed for two days. The hotel was being renovated outside so was a bit noisy during the day but worked stopped between 5:30 PM and 9:30 the next morning. Our room was apparently newly renovated and quite modern, although a bit on the small side, and was quite comfortable. The breakfast that was provided was very good and staff kept the room tidy and ensured coffee cups were filled. The hotel is a short (5-10 minutes) walk to the honky-tonks and restaurant area.

Music Scene

Went for the music scene. Stayed 4 nights. It's about a ten minute walk to Broadway from the hotel. There is a big hill, be warned! However, hotel was a good value. Staff was nice, breakfast was what you expect from a Best Western, and room was clean. The last night was a little noisy, but seemed like the weekend crowd was arriving. Also, all doors open to the outside which isn't immediately obvious from their pictures. Good value for the price.

Fun friend trip

We had a good stay. We didn't realize it was a motel, not a hotel, that was a little disappointing. The room was clean. Since we had two couples staying in the room, it would have been nice it the sink was separate from the toilet and shower area. It was a nice walk to downtown, about 15 min. The staff were all very nice! The breakfast was better than we expected, not only hot biscuits and gravy, but also eggs, sausage and freshly made waffles.

Great place for the price

When we booked it, we didn't realize that it was an outdoor entrance into your room. However, the staff was so polite!! The room was small but we only needed it to sleep, shower, and get ready to explore the town. We walked to Broadway with no problem. For the price of hotel, it was perfect.

Staff was super friendly. It was more of a motel style hotel but the inside of the room was very nice. We walked to most restaurants and bars because it was so close to downtown. Took a cab once to Broadway and was only $5 cab ride.
