For some local color that was a great suprise you MUST go to the Drake. I was pleasantly surprised that the rooms were so quaint and clean. I was told about the famous people that stayed here. They have their autographed pictures in the lobby.... although they wouldn't tell me when, lol, I was told that a couple of music...

For a single person on a budget, this place is certainly worth the place to stay. While it is central to alot of places, you know you can explore and still come back and settle in for the night. Staff were friendly and always willing to help. Thumbs up!!

I would like to start by saying that my boyfriend and I are students who like to travel, and are used to cheap hotels and motels. We're not very picky.. BUT!! DO NOT STAY AT THE DRAKE MOTEL!! It's the worst place I've been to. We got a non-smoking room, that smelled like old cigarettes and dirt. Everything was really...

We happened upon the Drake Inn one night and weren't too sure of the area at first. As we were registering with Lisa at the front dest, we got to chatting and never laughed so hard. We will never forget how funny Lisa was and how personable she was with us. We really got excited when we found out that...

Staff was ok and polite. Sheets/blankets/pillowcases all had cigarette burn holes in them, but they were at least clean. Coffee in the morning. Might have once been where the stars stayed in the '50s and 60s', but not any in a long time. I don't expect 4 stars out of a budget hotel, but it was the worst in our...

We recently made 3 trips to Nashville to bring my dad to Vanderbilt University Hospital for some medical procedures. We had to stay overnight on the last two trips. Our stay at the Drake was wonderful! Very friendly, courteous staff; the rooms were great. Would definitely stay again, and would recommend to friends.

I went to check in, and the workers were lounging in chairs on either side of the desk and made it VERY awkward when I walked in. It was a huge chore for them to actually stand and go to the computer. Then the office was locked so they didn't have my registration information and had to call the manager...
