About the last of november, my wife and I went to nashville to celebrate our 9th anniversary. Well this hotel, "The Drake", popped up, when I did an internet search. I reserved a jacuzzi room for I think it was almost $80.00. Well when we arrived at the hotel, it's just like what the other couple wrote. Except, while my wife was out in the truck, and I was checking in, I witnessed a couple get into a braw, and men starring at my wife, or so she told me. I'd already checked in about this time. Well I told the desk clerk I'd changed my mind. He also told me this couple were just playing around. Yeah right!!!! He refused to give me my money back, after trying for 10 minutes. He told me to write a letter, and to talk to ash, the manager at that time. I talked to ash, he said that he was sorry, but he could not give my money back but give me a free night at the hotel. He said I had up to 6 months to use it. Well it's been almost 6 months and I started to use that free room, but after reading the last couples review, I'm convinced it's not worth staying there, it hasn't changed one bit. I would've wrote this letter a long time ago because this "Drake Inn", left me with a bad taste for nashville's culture. I feel much better now that I have stated facts with my opinion.

We did the reseach, checked out the web page for The Drake and reserved the room for two nights. Upon our arrival, it looked ok from the road so we went in and registered. Once we were enroute to our room we noted several suspicious people hanging around outside the rooms, we just thought maybe it was because we were poor ole dumb country ppl who had never been to the "Big City". Once inside the room, there was an obnoxious ordor that required us to go to the local store and buy Fabreez before we could stay there. We struggled through the two days that we had put on our credit card and have never gone back. (We saw the sign also..."Stay where the Stars stay"....hah!!) We recently saw The Drake on the television show COPS they were arresting hookers out of there.

My experience has been good; it s conveniently located to down town and airport that was what I was looking for, inexpensive rooms, friendly staff always ready to help. Clean rooms, over all I enjoyed it, I have been to Nashville before and stayed at different places by far the best experience in Nashville.

I got stuck after an ice shower in front of the Drake (Where the Stars Stay! so says the sign out front) and ended up spending the night. Hope that never happens again. There are stains on the carpet by the bed to prove it. I slept in my clothes and socks with towels on the pillows and got out early the next morning when the sun came up and the roads cleared.
