This was in the heart of Nashville's shopping area. Easy walk to anything in the downtown area. The included breakfast was great. We were there on a Wednesday night and appreciated the mid-week room rate special. I thought the bed was comfortable, my husband thought it was awful. Overall, a pleasant stay.

I organized a bus trip for 37 women to Nashville, Indiana. I looked at every hotel in Nashville and this one fit most of my wants and all of my needs. Bibi, the manager, helped me with the best rates for the hotel; organized a Mystery Murder Dinner in the banquet room for us and arranged for a buffet breakfast... More

Good food. Not amazing but good. The ambiance of the establishment is nice and folksy. The last time I was there was with a large group of ladies several months ago. I don't eat a lot at a time and was just too hot to eat much. I wanted something small and tried to order from the Children's Menu. The... More

Peaceful & quiet in the center of quaint Nashville. Clean comfy rooms fit right in with this historic village. Room price looked a bit high (in mid summer), but was actually a good deal when adding in the breakfast buffet, free parking & convenience of staying in the heart of Nashville. Especially enjoyed the attention to detail in each unique... More

We went in to pay for parking and immediately decided I wouldn't give them my business after paying my $5. The older gentleman working didn't greet us at all and looked at us like we were crazy for bringing our kids in to pay for parking. (Like we would leave them on the sidewalk alone while we went in). The... More

Having been to Nashville several times over the years, I wanted my young adult daughter's first visit here to be memorable. I'm glad I chose this inn. I really didn't want us staying in a chain hotel and wanted my daughter to experience all the charm Nashville has to offer. First of all, if you are coming to Nashville with... More

My husband and I stayed here one night to celebrate our 7th wedding anniversary. The place is really adorable. I loved the grounds and gardens surrounding the building. It is in a perfect location with easy walking distance to all shops and restaurants. The room was clean and cozy. My only complaint is the bed in our room. We stayed... More

We just returned from a family reunion here where we stayed two nights with our 2 kids, ages 14 months and almost 5. If it had just been my husband and I, I may have given a slightly better rating, but this was a challenging place to stay with a toddler. I'll start with the pros: 1) Very comfortable beds!... More

We were in a suite in the adjacent building and were very disappointed. The carpet was stained and the furnishings were dusty. The coffee pot was nasty. The mattress is broken down and uncomfortable. We woke up both mornings with backaches. The couch was broken down and uncomfortable. The floor squeaked loudly. We could hear other guests like they were... More

Great location in the middle of downtown so it was nice to return our shopping packages or use the restroom(although there are nice public restrooms at each end). The staff was very friendly! We had a room with a balcony that made a very nice perch to watch the Christmas parade. Beds and pillows just "okay" and we could hear... More
