I stayed at the Drake Inn for only one night and I'm ashamed to let people know I did that. It's in a really seedy area first of all and worse than that it's just a dive ran by thug's.I was on a buisness trip to Nashville two week's ago and I saw the website.Needing a place close to the...

This place was a dump. I paid for three nights on line, unrefundable. I stayed 1 night and left. I may have lost my money for 2 nights, but I learned a lesson. Do not prepay for a place you have not seen. Beds were dirty including floors, bathroom, tables, walls and everything else. Strange people were standing around all...

My boyfriend and I stumbled upon this motel at about 1:30am after being lost for the past 2 hours. It was open and had a room, so it was good enough for us. The only reason we were in Nashville anyway was to hit the bars and hear the music. The first night was uneventful, we didn't even see anyone....

This hotel has been at its current location since 1956. All my wife and I require is a low cost safe hotel. We have been comming here for fanfare for years.The staff is on duty 24/7 and we use the pool. We have never had an issue with staff or any of the guest.

Came in from KY on our way to FL. VERY NICE and CLEAN hotel. Employees are very courteous and even accomodated our late checkout request. Rate was very reasonable and the proximity to downtown are unbeatable. Better than paying $200 in downtown for the same kind of room. Hotel is just like it is depicted in the movies. DEFINATELY RECOMMEND...

We were enticed to this place initially by the low advertised price. Only to find out (after being charged) that they had a 25% TAX. You heard right 25%. They said it was a mandatory tax by the city of Nashville which was a lie (we checked later). Anyways, it took us 4 rooms to find one that DID NOT...

The Drake Motel was very disappointing. The room was old and out-dated and it was filthy. There were stains on the carpet defy description. A panel fell out of the ceiling and there was a large hole going straight into the attic. It is by far the worst motel that I have seen in the United States.

My friend and I just wanted a cheap room close to downtown for one night. We debated for thirty minutes on even going in when we arrived to the parking lot, and once we checked in and got to our room, we checked right back out. There were so many "rough" people around the motel and the entire surrounding area,...

This motel is awful for the price you pay! We paid $220 for 3 nights! and it was awful! There were stains all over the sheets, there were holes in the wall and there were insects everywhere! It was gross! You couldn't walk to downtown from here you had to get a bus or taxi...and the area was so dodgy!...
