We arrived into Nashville and stayed here on recommendation of my brother. It was close to where we wanted to everything (walking distance) so we could walk home at night, without being on the doorstep of all the noise. Rooms were clean (a little tight on space) but satisfactory for us as it was only the two of us. We...

Walking distance to Downtown sights. Great staff. Alysa at the front desk always had a smile and a helping hand. The breakfast room was large enough so no one waited for a place to sit. The bar was inviting, and my sister and I felt like we knew the bartender, Billy Jo, forever. We even named a drink after her....

My sister and I stayed for the weekend for some sister time. It was our first trip to Nashville and our first stay at The Capitol. The location is good. Only a few blocks from downtown. We got in town a couple hours early and I called to ask for an early check in. Our room was clean and ready....

Jamie and Alfred are amazing! My boyfriend is sick with food poisoning and I am living in California and couldn't be there to get anything for him. I called the front desk to see if I could order him Poweraid and some crackers and they were unable to take a credit card over the phone. However, Jamie and Alfred went...

This is a great, affordable hotel choice if you are set on staying in downtown nashville. The location puts it just a half mile from all the honky tonks, country music hall of fame, sports venues, and a five minute drive to all the cool sights. There's a free breakfast too. However, this is not a fancy hotel, almost closer...

This hotel is a little gem. Conveniently located to all the sights. Clean "outside access" rooms. Downstairs bar and place to eat. Valet parking is quick and efficient.. Breakfast in the morning is similar to Hampton, etc. Fitness room is OK. The friendliness of the staff is what makes this a great place especially Alisa, Axel, Robert and Billie Jo.

We chose this hotel for the location and price and were happy with both. The room was comfortable but it is an outside entrance much like a motel. The doors SLAM so noise level was a bit loud. Other than that a pretty decent stay. Breakfast is decent, they even have a pancake maker that is much cleaner than the...

Convenient location, we walked to Broadway. Not a fancy hotel but clean and had everything we needed. Staff helpful and friendly. We did brunch out , so did not use the breakfast. I did like the keurig in the room.

A busy weekend in Nashville, so the major hotels near the downtown action were either booked or outrageously expensive. The Capitol Hotel is a little less expensive but still easy walking distance to Broadway, Convention center, Music City Central, Bridgestone Arena, and most anything, could even walk to the Gulch. The hotel is more than adequate, especially for the amount...

I want to start off that this review should be 3.5 stars but that's not allowed on TripAdvisor. The hotel itself is pleasant enough but dated. The exterior hallways are a drawback but for the price it is worth the sacrifice. Now for the good: early check in was a huge plus. We arrived early (well before lunch) and just...
