All of the choices that will be recommended to you are off Interstate 24, exit 76, Medical Center Parkway. This is generally called “The Avenue” area of town because of a nearby shopping center with that name.  Murfreesboro is an interstate town and between the four exits for our city you can find a wide choice of hotel/motels: from $49 economy to $189 high-end. The hotels recommended below are accessible to the interstate with lots of restaurants nearby and the properties are fairly new (built within the last decade).

Please note: there are unfortunately no hotels near campus. The drive to MTSU, where all SEJC events will take place, will usually take between 15 and 25 minutes depending on traffic. Specific directions from specific hotels will be given later.
