The Dive Motel Is A 1970s-Inspired Blast-From-The-Past Getaway

There are few things in this world that are as aesthetically pronounced as a retro dive motel, and with more and more of them falling victim to renovation, it’s bound to take more than a little digging to find the seedy spot of your dreams. Luckily, Nashville’s Dive Motel is fully committed to the creation of a well-rounded inn that boasts some of the 1970s’ most pronounced characteristics.

The experiential Dive is built within the city’s iconic Key Hotel, a 1956 Motor Inn that earned its keeps as one of the most popular buildings of the era. After reinvigorating its multitudinous rooms, bar, and pool area with vintage peripherals, woodwork, and furniture, The Dive outfitted each of its nostalgic living quarters with spinning disco balls, technicolor lights, and other club-like amenities, providing guests with both a place to relax, and channel their wild side. If you’re feeling stir-crazy in any of the motel’s 23 rooms, head down to the vintage bar — a traditionally-designed socialization area that’s been accentuated by nostalgic tile work, leather, and gold-flaked tabletops. Outside, the Swim Club offers a perfect escape from the city’s summer heat, with both monthly and daily passes available for local use. Head to The Dive Motel’s website to book your sultry stay.
