I have stayed at scarre over 14 times! It is cheaper (often one third of the Nashville downtown price). Plus, free Wi-Fi and parking! You can walk to many restaurants and Vanderbilt. The grounds are peaceful beautiful and quiet. The rooms are always adequate, clean. We have never had any type of bug problems. There are often med flight helicopters...

The campus the center is located on is beautiful, and for my purposes an excellent location within walking distance to everything I needed. However, the rooms were filthy, smelly, loud, and incredibly uncomfortable. I've seen cleaner rooms at inner city budget hotels. Bring flip flops--you do not want to touch this carpet! I could well imagine I was back in...

Dorm style room with twin bed and very little storage. Carpet old and stained. Shared bathroom. I found comfort for my stay by imagining all of the women who had lived in the rooms while receiving education and training at SB. I will stay there again.

We have stayed at S-B over a dozen times in recent years. The room(s) have been OK ($75 for a twin bed, sharing a bathroom), BUT, there were many times they were NOT clean, NOT in working condition, and the amenities were lacking (noise(s) and other guests who prevented sleeping through the night-akin to a youth hostel in comfort). When...

This place is a beautiful venue for weddings. We got to eat lunch here with Clemson students and it was delicious. I cannot wait to come back. The people we met with were extremely friendly. If you get a chance to tour, DO IT!

The location was amazing. The building is very pretty. The cooks were also very nice. They could do some possible updates, but other than that the business really reminded me of historic Norwich, England. I also really enjoyed the fried chicken

My classmates and I visited the Scarritt-Bennett Center for a field trip. We got a tour of the grounds, explanations of the buildings, and a lunch provided. The grounds were very beautiful, as well as the church. We also really enjoyed the kindness of the staff.

Always enjoy staying at the Scarritt-Bennett Center. Primarily, this is due to the affordability aspectr. However, finding their prices have increased significantly for 2017 don't know that I will always make it my number 1 choice anymore. Of course, their prices remain lowest in the area, but considering the amenities, not as attractive as before. (Shared restroom, no TV, suspect...

If you are looking for an inexpensive place to stay in Nashville this a good option. It's very basic: bed, desk, chair, Jack and Jill room (shared bathroom with next room). Each floor has a lobby with a tv, microwave and fridge. Since it was an old dorm, not much control over the temperature of the room. Close enough to...

I stayed here for a songwriter workshop I was attending. It is definitely not fancy -- just a basic bed, with a shared bathroom and a dresser. The furnishings are sparse, but if you just need a good night's sleep, the bed was comfortable enough, and it was very clean. Breakfast was included and was wonderful, and I felt like...
