Not worth the money we paid and the two night minimum for the suite we had...really not worth it. Glasses in the kichenette were dirty, the cleaning staff didn't clean the room-only made the bed and gave us fresh towels. Combine that with a leaky shower, and a funky smell in the room. The "free" breakfast also cost me an... More

We enjoyed our four nights and the view from the balcony was great. Our room (T.C. Steele) showed some signs of wear, like a small hole in the ceiling and a leaky faucet, but it was quiet, the air conditioning worked well and the bed was very comfortable. The location was perfect for exploring the shops. We will return.

My husband and I decided to go to Nashville/Brown County for the first time on a whim, with about 24 hours notice. We are only 1.5-2 hours away in Cincinnati and wanted to stay for only one night and walk the shops on in the town. We cruised into town on a Sunday around noon with no plan and came... More

I loved the location and easy access to all the great little shops and the room was nice, big and cozy. My problem that ruined my weekend after the first night and why I rated the room a 3, was due to the mattress. My back and neck give me problems any way along with Fibromyalgia so the horribly hard... More

Elevator or stairs to get to your room. Hardwood plank flooring, fluffy towels, table and chairs in room, small tv, quilts for bedspreads, comfortable beds. Right on the main street of Nashville, IN. Parking behind the inn (they give you a placard to place on your mirror to cover the parking fee). The check-in staff was very friendly. I would... More

If you like being close to town and right by all the shops Artists Colony Inn and Restaurant is the place to stay. The value for the rooms could be a bit cheaper; however they do include the free breakfast buffet or $6 towards a menu item at the restaurant at the Inn. The rooms were nice and quaint, personal...

THEY DO IT RIGHT. we stayed at the Artist Colony in Nashville Indiana for one night this week and what a delight! The rooms were comfortable, clean and neat and the Shaker Style decorating kept it simple but very nice. Parking was free and breakfast was included which was a full buffet breakfast. We also had the best Blackberry Cobbler... More

This was our "girls weekend" . . . May 23-25, 2014. Stayed in Room 302 -- $180.00 a night room, for four (4) adults. One queen size bed, and two bunks. 2 chairs, 2 coffee cups, one roll of toilet paper and 1 bottle of shampoo . . . for four adults. The air conditioner wouldn't cool the room, and... More

The hotel is a relatively new build designed to be early american. The bed in our room (202) was a four poster, comfortable. TV was old (early american) not flat screen. The bathroom was nice, pedestal sink, toilet and shower. We had a small table and chairs, coffee maker, a small balcony overlooking the main street. There is no dresser... More

We stayed here for an Indiana University graduation. While we didn't have an opportunity to see a lot of Nashville, this hotel is in the middle of this charming town. The hotel was cute and cozy. We stayed in the 'Ada Schulz' room which was in the front of the hotel and had a balcony. The room itself was very... More
