Nashville is one of the hottest destinations in the country right now; and once a city is officially dubbed a “hot spot,” it almost always means one thing – it’s going to cost you (big time) to visit. Here’s the proof: The average cost of a night’s stay in a Nashville hotel room increased by 15 percent between 2013 and 2014. That’s well above the national average increase in hotel rates for that year, and yet it seems this expensive trend in Music City isn’t stopping anytime soon.
But fortunately, that doesn’t mean you need to shelve your plans to head to the land of hot country and hot chicken, because there are some hotels where you can find a solid bang-for-your buck. Here are nine budget-friendly Nashville hotels with price tags of just about $100/night.
Rates are based on May dates.
