"Charming Motel"


This motel isn't a luxury stay, but a great stay for the price! It feels as if you're stepping back in time a few decades when you walk into the office and see all of the movie shoot photos and autographed celebrity headshots from famous guests in the days of old. Friendliest motel staff I've encountered!

"Just the basics, just right. "


We needed a clean, cheap convenient place in East Nashville for one night, and The Drake delivered. Staff were gracious and helpful. If you take no delight in old school un-ironic kitsch, move on. Walls and doors are thin, so earplugs are a plus. Coffee available for early risers.

"Interesting place to stay"


Went to Nashville for a concert and only in town for one night, when I saw the cheap price for a room at the Drake (by far the cheapest that is close to downtown) I read the reviews, there were honest reviews that clearly let me know this was not a new hotel and not a 5 star place to stay, but others noted that there were signs of age and it isn’t in the best neighborhood. I also read about how neat it was to stay in this older somewhat historic hotel, so I booked the room and took the advice of one review that said I should upgrade to the suite. The staff at the Drake are as pleasant and friendly as anywhere I have ever stayed, the woman at the front desk gave us lots of information and my wife and I actually talked with her about the hotel and the history, she was very friendly. When we got to our room and opened the door we were surprised to find a somewhat modern looking room that was clean and had a big jacuzzi tub right in the middle of the room. There was a poster on the wall signed by a singer that actually did a video in our room (we watched it on YouTube). Now don’t get me wrong, this is not the lap of luxury here, and the closer you look the more the age shows, but like I said the room was clean and the bed was comfortable and the jacuzzi tube worked great. Overall I was very happy with my stay and would stay here again. Even though this place is less than 2 miles from downtown, don’t walk, get an Uber or Lyft or a cab it’s cheaper than trying to park downtown.

"You get what you paid for"


I must first start off with the front desk staff, Lynn. She was heavenly. Her positive attitude and customer-centred treatment of me was just wonderful. Please be aware the area is a bit challenging. During my stay, there were prostitutes and drug dealers 1/2 block from the motel pretty much 24/7. However, I didn't feel unsafe during my 6-day stay. The room was very clean but dated. And the amenities are basic. But remember you get what you pay for.

"Decent Motel for the Price"


The staff at the front desk were very friendly and inviting. Although the location ended up being a bit sketchy, I never felt threatened or unsafe. I really liked how the exterior of the motel looked like a blast from the past. The interior of my room was ok. There does need to be renovations done but for the price it was worth it.

Most of the time the service is fine although they DO UP THE PRICE THE FIRST WEEK OF THE MONTH. Almost certainly due to the fact most people get their checks on the 1st. Also we had to stand in the cold for 20 mins to wait on the bus BC we were told "the owner wouldn't allow it" it was Like 30° AND we'd just turned our key in. How is that right??

"Great time"


For a mini vacation with a friend this was the perfect place to stay! We loved having the jacuzzi. The room was structurally a little rough but it was clean & perfect for our purpose. Just a quick drive to downtown. We stayed in 117 and had a blast looking up Darryl Worley's video. We left something behind and came back hours after check out and you had held on to it for us! Originally we were suppose to stay in an airbnb but it fell through so we chose the Drake and so happy we did, service was just as friendly and genuine and it didn't feel like staying in a corporate motel. Already recommended to friends & will be back!

"Little Gem of a place close to downtown."


This place was a fantastic find in a great location close to Downtown. The rooms are spacious, spotlessly clean and loads of hot water. The team of staff are very friendly, made us so wellcome and couldn't do enough for us - daily maid service if we wanted it but we were staying for 2 weeks so suggested every other day. Massive thank you to Preedom, her husband and Michael on reception who were so lovely and friendly to us. Downtown is a 30 minute walk which we did several times but also bus stop is right outside so easy to get around. The Motel was fairly quiet for the location and we slept incredibly well. We also used the pool which was very refreshing and lounged during the say soaking up the amazing October sunshine. We recommend this place to anyone who wants to keep it real and avoid the inflated prices of downtown hotels that have no character. We had the best time and would love to stay again.

"Walking Distance to Broadway"


The price was very reasonable, we walked to Broadway, there are buses to take you but we decided to walk, it was a nice walk especially after being in the car for 16 hours. Rooms are small and could use some updating - the bathroom, it was clean but just plain bad and tiny. Depends on what you are looking for, but we would probably stay there again in a pinch.
