Checked into room 311, a two room suite. The room was nice but tired. The location of the room was on the third floor of the adjacent building and the elevator only went to the second. We had to carry our luggage up stairs to the third floor.
In the room we found the bathroom floor dirty and the toilet with mold in the bowl. The shower/tub had obvious soap scum. The towels were thin and worn and the toiletries were two small (tiny) soaps and one shampoo. We could not find a luggage rack and had to place everything on the floor. The bed's mattress was well worn with depressions from many previous guests and we both woke up with aching backs.
When we reported this to the front desk attendant she appeared to have an attitude with no apology but immediately called housekeeping.
Breakfast was included in the cost of the room and found a very uninspired buffet - scrambled eggs, bacon, sausage, etc. It would have been OK but it was obvious that it had been standing there for some time as everything was just lukewarm.
The Artist Colony has the potential to be a tremendous experience but it appears that the current owners are just milking it. The front desk people are defensive, the housekeeping staff almost non existent, and the wait staff in the restaurant bored and uninterested.
Nashville is a lovely destination but there are better places to stay than this.
