There are a couple motels at the Harding Pl exit off I-65. They should be less expensive than Cool Springs... unless you swipe a great deal on priceline. I tend to not book in advance on a roadtrip like that. You never know at what exact point you'll be tired, or if you want to keep pushing on when you get to your booked hotel. I have used those discount coupon magazines you get at Denny's and rest areas to get good deals. They're grouped by interstate so you can start looking as you get tired and ready to stop.

The OP said he preferred a safe area, in a close-by burb south of Nashville. This isn't what he's looking for. Cool Springs sounds like it's the area he should be looking at--there are alot of options there.

We stayed at the aloft hotel in Cool Springs and it far exceeded my and my husband's expectations. It was less than a $100 a night but felt like a 4 star hotel. They have flat screen tvs with pay-per-view movies, Bliss Spa bath products, comfy beds, clean rooms, free internet, pool, workout room, hip bar and dining area with a fire place and board games for the family to play. They also have a little grocery area with all kinds of food and drinks that you can buy (popcorn, soups, salads, wrap sandwiches, fruit, energy bars, drinks, candy, etc) and take up to your room.

Cool, I wondered what that place was like. They renovated it fairly recently from the bottom up and it looks like a nice place.

Renovated? It's a new building. Aloft by W, right?

There are three hotels that I recommend for my family when they come to Nashville to visit:

Hilton Suites in Brentwood (very nice hotel, but pricey on weekdays)
Embassy Suites in Franklin (great hotel with decent free cooked to order breakfast)
Brentwood Suites in Brentwood (If you go to hotels.com, you can get a cheaper rate than on the hotel's website). They also have a free breakfast.

Yes, it was brand new. It's affiliated with the sports training complex that Peyton Manning is part owner of right next door. All kinds of potential agents and sports management big whigs will probably be staying there, along with the fresh meat they are surveying. It's no surprise that it is a really nice hotel.

Peyton co-owns D1? Interesting. Makes sense, though.

I know I read that somewhere when the whole complex was being built. I'm sure he's not 100% owner or anything.

I think Will Bartholomew (fmr UT player) also owns it...or at least is the primary operator.
