A great city to visit, but unfortunately, Fairfield Nashville is not such a great place for ordinary RCI members to stay. Many buildings are in need of updates. Only Gold or Platinum members get the nicest units, and you will learn about this with the sales pitch.

Best Things Nearby:Opry Mills Mall, Grand Ole Opry, Opry Land Hotel, Downtown Nashville, Country Music Hall of Fame, Loretta Lynn's ranch is about 1½ hour drive.Best Things About the Resort:Close to Grand Ole Opry and Opry Land Hotel.Resort Experience:Most of the buildings/units seemed to be in need of some updating. The first unit I was assigned was terrible. I had complained at check in because the unit wasn't ready at 4pm and evidently made the lady (Paula) behind the desk mad. She "changed" my reservation to a room that was ready. This room was in building 10. If ever assigned to 10, refuse! Ten was on the ground floor with a staircase directly above the living room. One of the few building without an elevator. It was like a cave, I could not open the curtain because someone was always standing outside the window, usually an employee. The maid's storeroom is located directly outside this room. Finally on Thursday, 5 days into the trip, we were moved to a one-bedroom deluxe. This is the room we should have been given at the beginning. This room was nice and we managed to salvage the last few days of the vacation. The room you stay in surely can affect the enjoyment of your vacation. We learned, at the sales presentation, that only the Gold and Platinum members are assigned the best units. This is not a "standard" RCI or Fairfield FairShare Plus member friendly resort.
Unit Type: 1 Bedroom
Unit Satisfaction: Poor
Family Friendliness: Not Available
Great! If you only do only one activity while in Nashville, do not leave without seeing the Grand Ole Opry. The night I visited, they were broadcasting the show to the troops in Iraq.
