query re Nashville

Can anyone let me know of (a) a comfortable cheap hotel in Nashville Tn and (b) if it is possible to go water ski-ing or canoeing from anywhere near the city?

thanks

Take a look at www.hotelkingdom.com

Unlike some of the other booking companies, you don't have to "pre-pay".

Read the "About" tab on the website.

Lots of hotels to choose from.

Just a note:
biddingfortravel.com is nothing more than a "primer" for how to bid on Priceline...It is good, and gives you an idea of the what "deals" you can get. (I have used Priceline and biddingfortravel). Also, you must "pre-pay"; and read the cancellation policies.

I don't know what you mean by "cheap", but we like the Residence Inn Airport.
(It's not right at the airport, so there is little to no noise). The rooms are VERY nice and it also comes with a full breakfast.

I used the Best Western Convention Centre hotel. Not the greatest hotel ever but is was relatively cheap and was in easy walking distance to downtown

Dear Geraldine -- I would check Travelocity or Orbitz. That gives you a general idea of many room rates around the city, and you can use that as a starting point to go to hotel's websites after that.

For safety's sake, you will want to avoid any places on Dickerson Road or Pike, Trinity Lane or Murfreesboro Road (unless it's Murfreesboro Road out near the airport which is better). Nashville has many lower priced chain hotels such as Comfort Inn, Motel 6, La Quinta and others.

Yes, you can canoe and waterski here. There are several big lakes nearby where boating and waterskiing are popular (Old Hickory Lake, Percy Priest Lake) Canoeing can be done on the scenic Harpeth River west of town or on Radnor lake within town.
