Stayed here for only one night, thankfully. The pictures are very misleading for this motel is typical of most cheap motels in USA. The room was basic, breakfast was in the reception area with a choice of one cereal and two day old bagels. There were only two tables and these were overlooked by the proprietor in case you tried...

Stayed here two nights while visiting a relative. Photo is deceptive. This place is so old that they still use real keys to open the doors. It is run by people who do not understand what most folks expect in accommodations. The room was clean and the bed comfortable. The Internet worked well. But the advertised breakfast did not exist.... More

Cheap and it felt cheap. Moldy smell. Uncomfortable beds and pillows. Unfriendly at front desk. Old TV. It is not walking distance to town. Shampoo is in little ketchup like packets. The room was clean.

We stayed at the Old Bardstown in on March 9, 2014 on our way through to the Makers Mark Distillery. We picked it because it was affordable and convenient - right in Bardstown. The Manager/Owner was nice, a bit reserved, but that was fine. Our room was clean and tidy and we liked having a small fridge. The owner graciously... More

Old. Clean and remodeled. Need new TVs. Old and dim. Service not good. Thin towels and not enough. Only two per room. Would check other hotels near Blue Ridge Parkway. Many workers and others living there. Poor parking available. Rooms open to outside and upstairs not handicap ready. No elevator.

But that is about it.The staff is not friendly at all and act all huffy if you dare to bother them, you are in... More

We stayed at the Old Bardstown Inn for 6 nights during the KY Bourbon Festival. The motel style accommodations are not bad. The room is quite large with 2 queens sized beds, small shower/toilet area but you make do. The only issue I had was the bed. It was an old inner spring type mattress which creaked alot and wasnt...

No ironing board or blow dryer in rooms. Only small packet of shampoo enough for 1 person. Felt dirty. They will try to charge you extra for anything they can....by the time you pay all of their "extra" charges, you might as well have put that money towards a decent hotel room with comfy beds, pillows and a decent shower.

After our plans got changed, we found ourselves looking of a cheap hotel in Bardstown. This little gem was exactly what we needed! Microfridges, very clean and excellently priced. Right across the street from My Old Kentucky Home State Park. Guy working the counter was less than friendly, even a bit sarcastic at times, but the room was clean and... More
