Good for the Price

As long as you're not expecting the honeymoon suite, this is a decent option at a good price in a great location. The owner was quick to respond and pleasant to talk with. Finding the unit, parking in back, and getting the key was a piece of cake.
It's a small, 1-bedroom, older-looking unit with a tight vanity/bathroom in the bedroom and PTAC type air conditioning you'd find at some hotels. Not bad for 1 or 2 people, but probably pretty tight for a group (our party was 2 adults and 1 two-year-old, which worked fine). Note that the main bed is a queen, not a double as listed in the feature list. TV is a small, old school, low-def CRT, but has cable. It's a first floor unit with door facing the street side. Overall, a "good value" type-of-place, if expectations are set properly.
Two minor improvements that could make the place a whole lot better:
--- Wi-Fi. The only access to broadband is via a short ethernet cable near the TV. This is useless for phones or other handheld devices (ipad/itouch) and would require using a laptop on the ground near the TV. A $50 investment in a wireless router would make a huge difference. Quite disappointing upon arrival, given the decade we're in.
--- Room-darkening shades/blinds. At night, there is a ton of light that comes through the existing blinds from the parking garage across the street (which is lit up like a Christmas tree). Not a problem for us after wearing ourselves out during the day, but YMMV.
Lastly, for what it's worth, check-in was 2PM and check-out was 9AM, the latter being a bit on the early side for our liking (but apparently they need to get the cleaning crew in for 2PM check-ins).
So, overall, set your expectations accordingly (and hope the owner gets a wi-fi router before you arrive!) and you'll be in a great location for a good price.
Owner's Response: Thanks for the deserved kick in the pants.
We have upgraded to wifi, better late than never.
If I had known how easy it was to install a router, I would have done it sooner.
All our Nashville properties are now wifi enabled.
Thanks for your constructive suggestion.
