My friends are were on a small road trip through Nashville and wanted somewhere cheaper to stay at but also as close to the music/bar scene as possible while being safe and this the perfect find! We personally aren't picky fancy amenities and were not in the room much, but the 3 of us found the rooms for rent great... More

I'll go over the weird or off things first: When I got there in the morning obviously the rooms aren't ready so I wanted to leave my luggage before check-in time. Their idea of a luggage space is the hallway, not locked in a room somewhere. I am not really sure if that is more or less safe (could be... More

I love the grounds of Scarritt-Bennett Center! I was housed in one of the more spartan rooms but even then it was clean and relatively comfortable. It was nice to have a bathroom with a tub and I didn't mind sharing since I knew the person in the room next to me. One disadvantage was that my room was facing... More

If you're looking for a reasonably priced, basic room in a tranquil setting this is your place. The neon lights & hubbub of downtown are only 10-12 min away and easily reached by car or public transportation. A "starving musician" friend had an audition in the Nashville area so we chose to stay for a few days and make it... More

I stayed at the Scarritt-Bennett Center for 5 nights. The property is adjacent to Vanderbilt University. The buildings and grounds were beautiful. Hopefully, you'll have time to enjoy the outdoor labyrinth during your visit. If you are driving, park in Lot A (access is from 18th Street). Parking was ample and free. Check-in was easy, but they are strict about... More

What do you say about this monastery like campus next to Vanderbilt University which is a conference/wedding center devoted to christian values and ending racism? How about unique? The campus is really several buildings including three dorm like buildings with very small shoebox rooms and shared bathroom. The rooms are clean, twin bed and room service every three days. Open...

Went 2 nights from July 4th to 6th. Great Location considering you need a car to visit Nashville and nearby (Free Parking included). Right in the middle of Vanderbilt University. Very Quiet neigborhood. It's not a hotel even a B&B: it's like a University dorm. Shared bathroom (your room and the next one have a door to the same bathroom,... More

Great option for a single traveler. Lovely buildings and grounds, modest small rooms like you would expect at a retreat center. Single beds, shared bath (although no one ever seemed to be in the next room, so I had it to myself), clean, free parking close to buildings, nice location. Wireless worked pretty well with a decent signal. I especially... More

The location of this property is very convenient, very close to the Vanderbilt campus. The grounds are breathtaking as are the old buildings. The conference facility was fine - Not fancy. The vendor space was a little awkward. All in all, it was a good place to have a conference.
