I had been considering staying at super8 motel but have decided to up the budget and see what I can get.
I can get Maxwell house for approx $90 per night including taxes and additional charges for 3 adults. It has free parking and a shuttle to any destination within 5miles which includes Downtown. (Would Opryland fall within 5 miles) No breakfast.
I can get HI express downtown for $100 per night inc all taxes and charges. It costs an additional $15 per day for parking but is within walking distance of downtown. It includes breakfast.
Which of these would be the better deal / hotel. I intend spending most of the time downtown with a night possibly at opry. I will have a car and can drive to Opryland if required.
