Brentwood Holiday Inn became my number one pick.
Then, I learned the Brentwood location doesn’t use Holiday Inn’s new SimplySmart triple-sheet bedding.
I might never accept a dirty motel bedspread again.
Find out why the Holiday Inn’s luxuriously clean bed gave us our soundest hotel sleep ever…
Holiday Inn Review
I’m a germ-phobe.
In a standard motel room, I immediately fold up the bedspread and place it on the floor of the closet.
Sheets are washed between guests, but I can’t stand to think of my children under a bedspread that’s only occasionally cleaned!
I could not believe my eyes when we checked into the Holiday Inn Express in Georgia.
The ugly polyester bedspread was GONE. In its place–a light, duvet-style blanket sandwiched between THREE clean white sheets.
Yep, you read that right. Holiday Inn’s SimplySmart bedding uses a 200-thread count fitted sheet, a long flat sheet, the duvet, and a third, decorative top sheet over the duvet. The hem of the second sheet folds over the duvet for a crisp, clean covering!
Luxury hotels have always used triple sheeting to cover blankets. Holiday Inn Express is the first economy hotel chain to use the technique.
It was the best night’s sleep we’ve ever had in a hotel.
Why? It felt like home. The synthetic duvet was light and cushy. We didn’t even fight over 2 flat pillows, because our bed came equipped with several pillows labeled FIRM or SOFT.
I wasn’t impressed with the SimplySmart bathroom upgrade, but the hotel bed alone made it worth our stay.
The Brentwood Holiday Inn is a nice hotel, even if it lacks my new standard of excellence. It has a decent restaurant and is within walking distance of Target, LongHorn Steakhouse, Panera Bread and Qdoba. Now, if only it will upgrade its hotel beds!

I'm a wife, mom of 4, and resident of Brentwood, Tennessee. I love finding fun new things for my family to see and do in Brentwood and the Nashville area!
