AirBnB or Downtown Hotel

Some friends and I are headed to Nashville in June for an Eric Church concert and we are trying to decide if we should stay at an AirBnB two miles from downtown for 400 bucks for the weekend or splurge and stay in the heart of downtown for 600...any suggestions? Is the two miles worth saving the 200 bucks?

You may have had a bad experience or two with AIRBNB, however my wife and I have stayed in AIRBNB properties all over the world and including in the US and never had one problem. I guess it all depends on how you research the properties and what your expectations are. I always communicate extensively with the owner to insure no surprises and also do not pick properties that are unrealistically under priced.

@icecreamsue, please repost your question here: https://www.tripadvisor.com/ShowTopic-g55229…

We get a lot of "how is this address?" threads so we're trying to keep them consolidated into a single thread so they don't take over the board.

Thanks!

Please repost your question on the "Rentals" thread. It's pinned at the top of the Nashville forum so it's easy to find. I've provided a link directly to it two posts above yours in post#25. Thanks!

Please note that the Nashville Council has passed legislation outlawing non-owner occupied short-term rentals. Airbnb and other similar short-term rentals where an owner is not living on the premises will be slowly phased out until 2020, when it will be gone.

Make sure to check in advance if this will affect your stay in the future. Many rental options will disappear if the owner lives elsewhere. Since many people own more than one rental property, and it is obvious that they cannot live in more than one at the same time, many will cease to exist. It is expected that this will drive a lot of Airbnb just outside the county, Cheatham and Williamson Counties to the west of downtown will be the better options overall, but there will be other areas in Sumner, Wilson, Robertson, and Rutherford Counties that will have nice places as well.

Wow HP, that is a huge game changer. It is a little drastc but long overdue in terms of some sort of regulation. Hope those developers enjoy living a block from the Napier Homes...
