After reading some of these reviews, I was a bit nervous about our reservation at the Brown County Inn. Just goes to show that it is all about perspective and expectations.
If you're looking for a Hilton or Hyatt, you will be disappointed. This is an older hotel -- the furniture is a little worn, and the decor is a little dated. But truly, these are the only downsides. This is a clean, comfortable, affordable, and pleasant place to stay.
We paid $99 for a friday night stay in a non-smoking room with a king-sized bed. Contrary to other reports, there were no signs of previous smokers, no foul odors or other cleanliness issues. The linens were fine -- not luxurious, but not paper thin or stiff, either. The shower had decent pressure and we had no problems with temperature.
The Inn is about two blocks south of the southern most shops in downtown Nashville. I've been fooled by hotels claiming a "short walk to ____" before, but this was maybe a 100 yard walk. With a two-year-old in tow, it was nice to know that we could get back to the room very quickly if necessary during the day.
During our stay, we checked out the indoor pool, which was was clean, warm, and plenty large enough. There were three or four other families in the pool at the time, but we barely noticed. We also saw that the property has a small putt-putt course and playground, but it was a bit too cold for us to try it out.
We also ate at the Harvest Room for dinner and breakfast. It wasn't the greatest meal I've ever had, but it was tasty enough, and an easy alternative to fighting a restaurant crowd downtown. If you do eat here, I would definitely recommend the fried biscuits and apple butter.
All told, I would certainly stay here again. I would recommend this place for families with children. For us, we couldn't beat the location, the kid-friendly amenities, and the price.
