Guest Recommendations
Verified Guest from Milan, TN US rated Bluegrass Extended Stay Hotel 7 out of 10 on November 18, 2012
Definitely will stay on next visit
"Our door keys failed to work as soon as we got to our room. Then when we returned from our outing the keys once again had to be reset before we could gain access to our room. Other than that everything was great. Definitely will stay there again on my next visit. Desk service was friendly and very helpful when needed."

"This is the 3rd year I have stayed at this hotel for the Rolex 3-D Event taking place at the horse park. The first year I stayed with a friend and found the price very reasonable, they provided a continental breakfast and the room was VERY clean and quiet. Last year I brought 4 more friends (3 rooms between us) and we found the hotel was still clean and quiet and close to restaurants etc, and were still fine with it, even though the price had gone up and they didn't provide breakfast. This year, from our recommendations, there were 9 rooms of friends that came and almost all of them had complaints about toilets not working right, the beds and linens weren't changed, and there were loud and fighting people outside their rooms off and on all night and they didn't get any sleep. My room was ok, but no one else's room was. Several of my friend were nervous as they had brought children with them and the language of the roudy guests was quite offensive. So I guess I'd have to say that this hotel has gone a bit downhill since the first year I stayed and I do not think any of the people that came with me will stay with you next year. I did find the staff in the lobby very helpful and friendly and didn't lose their cool in spite of the upset guests."
