Desk Clerk was supposed to comp us the room but it and the rest of the rooms I had rented showed up on my credit card later. It was supposed to be a direct bill.... More

This hotel, despite it's age, was a fantastic stay! The pool was a.maz.ing! It is HUGE and such fun! It was so cold the weekend we were there, but the pool and room was very comfortable and warm. We would love to come back and stay in the summer when all the doors would open to the patio. The walk... More

In the middle of renovations, hotel was clean but old and musty. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Doors were somewhat shabby. Bed needs improvement. The main thing is that it was clean! May stay there if the improvements are made.

We spent two nights at the Brown County Inn and for the price was a good place to sleep; sheets and bed were comfortable but didn't spend much time there because we were on the go most of the time enjoying the beautiful colors and shopping in Nashville which is just around the corner. Wished there was a fan in... More

I thought the hotel felt very tired. And was very dark and have a cold feeling about it. The hotel is very convenient to shopping and the breakfast was good. It looks like they're planning on some improvements in the yard area.

Don't listen to the haters. Keep in mind this is a rustic, wooden, musty, place but to us it embodies all the cool things that make Brown County a great getaway. It's rooms have always been clean and well kept to is. The food is also very good and the atmosphere is great! We will return again!

We stopped in here on a recent trip to Brown County to eat at the restaurant. Let me just say I wasn't expecting much from the place, but boy was I pleasantly surprised! We had their fried chicken buffet and it was great. The chicken was tender and had a wonderful flavor. The rest of the buffet was really good... More

Where do I begin? Walking in the lobby smelled musty and old. The receptionist was wonderfully friendly despite the noise from the bar down the hall. Our room was on the first floor and easily accessed, although I'm not sure how safe it really was. The room was enough to make me want to go stay somewhere else. Dark paneling... More

First time here. Yes, as others have indicated, the Inn is in need of some updates and "freshening up". I hope though that when they do this, they do not change the rustic, country feel. My only complaint would be the musty, "skunky" smell which is most likely due to old, worn carpeting. Otherwise, the room was clean, quiet, safe... More

Stayed 9-19-15. It has been painted outside, some bathroom updates, a flat screen TV. Room dirty, pillows, maybe 1 inch thick. GROSS, carpet stained, electric outlets were a fired hazard, I had to plug in an outlet and put my phone on the rocker chair to charge. There is no way in hell that this place complies to the building... More
