Okay I should have read the reviews before staying here first. Since I paid $260 for one night and it said The Capitol Hotel, I never expected to be staying in a motel. I booked this room last minute to go with friends to Broadway Street. It isn't a far walk to downtown, but I would rather pay a little... More

The lobby looks like its been renovated... the rooms not so much. Still has that cheapo best western feel. Shower was as dark as night... kinda tough to see to shave.... the room cleaning was less than thorough... empty tissue box still empty when we returned! Towels were tiny. The valet service was very good. I gave it three stars... More

I absent mindedly left $1000 in cash in our room safe and didn't realize it until 3 hours outside of Nashville. I frantically called the hotel and spoke to the receptionist. She was primarily concerned that I still had the safe key and wanted to charge me for it. Clearly, that was not my primary concern! I did ask to... More

I'll start off by admitting I'm excessively picky and I like 4 to 4.5 star hotels therefore take that into consideration as you read. The bathroom granite is lovely, as is the faucet. The pictures had a nice frame and matting and the bed was comfortable... BUT the door opened to the outside Not an interior hallway. Creepy for a... More

This review get a bump up for having good value in a good location. The entrance and lobby are clean, but pretty lowbrow. The hallways are covered outdoor breezways... which adds to the tacky feel. But for us, it was all about value and comfort in a great location, and Capitol Hotel offered all of that. Air-conditioning was effective. Two... More

We chose this hotel as we had to watch our budget doing a tour of the Deep South for our honeymoon. The valet was $15 a night which we've found now is very reasonable. Lobby is nice and we just walked up to our second floor room. The rooms are quite nicely decorated and the bathroom is nice and spacious... More

This hotel is just a 10 minute walk to the main strip Nashville is famous for, Broadway so a great place to stay. A pretty unimpressive reception lobby reached via the car drop off gives a very poor first impression which is a shame as the hotel isn't bad. With just one lift for the whole hotel, which is very...

Clean hotel with updated decor. Room had a small refridgerator but no microwave. Rooms are quite clean and the the beds are comfortable. The only downfall is that the rooms are quite small, but hey, you are not LIVING in the room. Nothing special with the continental breakfast, but nice that they have it. Close enough to walk to Broadway... More

My wife and I stayed 5 nights to attend a conference. The staff was very friendly and quite helpful. Location is convenient to downtown activities. It is uphill to walk back, so consider that if you plan to walk back after an evening of activity. The breakfast was fresh with a fair variety of choices to suit most palates. Overall,... More

The location is nice and close to the bars on lower Broadway. The room was clean, but small. The bed and pillows were comfortable. The free breakfast was decent. The price was also cheaper the other hotels in the area. There was a mix of new and old. The rooms and lobby looked good, but the setup is more like... More
