Best B n B in Nashville In

4.6 on April 18, 2018

It was a very beautiful place and we will be back very soon

M&B in Nashville

3.2 on March 28, 2018

Bed was very comfortable. Bathroom was satisfactory. Room was too small, creating some difficulty with storing our personal items. Would have liked to have known kitchen was available for our use ahead of time; this was not advertised. Common areas exceeded expectations because we were the sole guests. These features could be better advertised as well.

Anniversary weekend

We stayed at Allison House for two nights. Our room and the house were very clean. The location can’t be beat. It is conveniently within walking distance to everywhere downtown. We would definitely stay there again. Great experience!

Staying at Allison House was a delight. The breakfast was wonderful, and Stephanie was very accommodating. The best thing was being able to park the car and walk everywhere. We will definitely go back again.
