Room - First Floor 1Bedroom Suite was very spacious (800sq ft. according to web site) though dated in decor. Otherwise very clean, warm, and comfy for our tastes where we rested very well. Staff was found to friendly, helpful, and offering up plenty of knowledge about the whereabouts of things in town, and what to do.

Dining - The only dissapointment with the stay was the dining. The on-site restaurant has a meu that offers up some promising fare at market rates, but it stopped there. Steaks were of low quality beef that just were too chewy to be eaten. Plenty of food joints surrounding though.

Room Tip: No elavators and 3-story building. Careful where you book if you dont like steps.

I have been coming to Nashville for a number of years with family members and we stay at the Hotel Nashville because it has the right size room we need and we like the location. However, this last time (October 1-2) was bad. It has never been all that nice, but tolerable. This year, the room smelled really bad, decor was dirty and terribly outdated and hasn't changed at all in the years we have been coming. Kitchen needed a good cleaning and there was water in the bottom of the dishwasher. No soap in the dispenser in the bathroom. Overall, I would NOT recommend this hotel. It is grossly overpriced. Don't understand why the management cannot put some money into this place. If they did it would be very nice.

We stay at Hotel Nashville every year for our anniversary. We love the spacious suites, the dining is excellent, and the staff is always friendly and accomodating. Our anniversary is around Christmas time and the hotel is always decorated so beautifully, along with the entire town of Nashville. We would recommend this to anyone wanting a romantic getaway.

If you have trouble with steps-stay away! Our suite was ok - what I did appreciate about it was that it was large and spacious. I didn't find any cleanliness problems, but the decor is very outdated and it appears very dark and dingy. Front desk staff are not very friendly. The free breakast leaves a lot to be desired - thank goodness it is free as very little is offered and no protein offered.

My husband and I booked a suite for our anniversary since the hotel looked charming and was located pretty much in downtown Nashville. At first we thought that the room would be ok but then we found out a few things.

First, we shared a common door with another room and whoever stayed there was in and out of that common room until after 1am and started up again at 7am..needless to say that did not help us get much sleep.We had a king size bed (the mattress was SO uncomfortable) and the headboard was barely hanging on since it looked like it would fit a full-size bed.

Second, there was no ice bucket for us to put any ice in. They only had bags and you had to go to the front lobby to get them. They did have ice trays in the room refrigerator but that was so ice covered that you could barely get the tray out to use it and when you did use it you had to refill it from the bathroom sink.

Third, the bathroom towels were on the small size and were pretty thin. I would probably use a towel like that when I give our dog a bath-not for either of us and certainly not for company!
The shower curtain was cloth, no liner, and when we stepped out of the tub/shower the floor was all wet, as well as my clothes that I had left on the toilet, The shower head was in the corner of the wall (near the shower curtain) and it was a little awkward trying to take a shower.

Fourth, there was a coffee pot in the room but the coffee in the packet made a weak cup of coffee. There was no sugar, splenda or creamer so we had to drink it black and it was pretty horrible. Not a good way to start the day.

Ffith, when the room got a little cool we decided to turn the heat on to take the chill out. We turned the thermostat to heat but the air coming out was cold. We kept trying and finally had to call the front desk for help. The lady at the desk gave some instructions on how to turn it to the left, hear it click and then back to the right. We tried what she told us and still had no luck so she had to come to the room and help us.

Sixth, the remote did not work so when we wanted to change the channels or lower/raise the volume we had to get up to do so.

Seventh, there were two plastic chairs out on the balcony and one of them had a broken seat back. When my husband sat down in it he almost fell backwards and out of the chair. Luckily we had some lawn chairs with us and had to use those instead.

Again..all this happened in less than a 24 hrs period. The hotel is definitely outdated and needs newer appliances (microwave, refrigerator, TV) and some plumbing work.

We were supposed to stay there for 3 nights but decided that at the price of $154 a night we could not see the sense in doing that. This hotel was definitely not worth that price!

Room Tip: choose another hotel

The best thing about the Hotel Nashville is it's location! We love that it is right at the end of Van Buren Street in Nashville, Indiana. If you are staying there, you can easily walk to every store, restaurant, and attraction in town. Even better is their small house, The North House, owned by the Hotel Nashville. It's also right on Van Buren Street, but at the bottom of "the hill" so there's not as much climbing. Then, there is also the small indoor pool and a cute old-timey restaurant that are fairly nice.

Outside of the location, indoor pool, and restaurant, there's not much positive I can say about this hotel. It is quite a climb to get up the steps to reach the hotel if you are walking back from the shops and restaurants in town. The climb would be absolutely impossible for anyone with a disability, bad knees/hips/ankles, or heart or breathing problems.

The rooms are very "rustic". We had a one bedroom unit that also had a sofa bed in the living/dining/kitchen area. Our kids took the bedroom while my wife and I slept on the sofa bed. Both beds were horrible! The beds were so squeaky and wobbly that we were awake most of the night either listening to each other turning over or hearing the kids roll around in their bed. Our kids said the next morning that it was THE worst bed they'd ever slept in. We told them we'd gladly switch with them the second night, but after laying down on the sofa bed, they quickly decided against trading with us.

The room itself was not very well taken care of. It was dingy, run-down, had torn curtains, stained carpet and bathtub, and outdated decor. The walls in the unit, especially in the bathroom, were chipped, cracked, and peeling. The room was border line dirty. It was one of the worst rooms we've ever stayed in. All that combined with the horrible beds led us to try to find a place in town to move to after our first night, but every other place downtown was booked solid.

I normally don't type out bad reviews. I'd prefer to give no review than a bad review. But, we would never recommend Hotel Nashville to any of our friends and family, so I felt it necessary to be honest and tell about our experience there. Honestly, the location is good enough that if we couldn't find any other accomodations on Van Buren Street, we might consider staying here again, but we would definitely bring Aero Beds to sleep on. For us it would be better than not having a place to stay, but barely. However, I'd never recommend it to anyone else.

Room Tip: Stay somewhere else.

My wife and I rented a room at the Hotel Nashville sight unseen from the internet. At the price we paid we thought it would be comparable to the Fairfield Inn like the one in Gatlinburg Tennessee. The room was a no smoking room though it smelled strongly of cigarettes, the sheets were thread bare with small holes in them, the towels were thread bare as well and would only leave 2 for the day even though we requested more from the desk clerk who said she would make sure we got them. Overall this place was a joke for the money we paid, dated and dirty looking. This was our first time together in Nasville Indiana and want to come back in the holiday season around Christmas but a little nervous about the other hotels in the area, I'll read the reviews before I get a room next time.
