We stayed here for a night as we were passing through on our way to Nashville. The hotel was clean, quiet and contained a fridge/microwave. Breakfast options were limited but you can't go wrong for only $55/night. I will stay here again if I'm ever in the area!

I thought this was clean and had a great location. It's not far from downtown, and is an older, very well-kept motel. (one of my favorite types). The WIFI worked great and the room was spacious and offered at a great price. We didn't even bother with breakfast and there was a minor smell of smoke. Other than that, I... More

Couldn't decide where the smell came from---maybe the heater filter. Otherwise the room was clean and in good repair. Very big room with two queen beds. All they had for their breakfast was cereal. No bread for toast. Didn't see any milk for the cereal.No waffles. Man at the desk didn't say a word to us when we came in... More

The hotel staff was great. The room was huge with all the accommodations that we needed for a weekend. The beds are very comfortable, the wifi has a really strong signal and the price was right. We will definitely be staying in this hotel on our next visit to Bardstown, KY.

The price is right if traveling on a budget but don't expect any frills. Clean room, comfortable beds, flat pillows. "Continental" breakfast was a joke - and only seating for 4 people. Good location - right across from My Old Kentucky Home Stare Park.

The owners were nice. The hotel was old but mostly clean. The pool was very nice and clean. The area around the pool was also nice. The breakfast was cereals, breads, waffles. Not too bad for free! For the price, you get what you pay for. We would stay there again.

Only good about this place is free WiFi and comfortable bed. But it had a weird smell and something needs to be repaired.. I think washroom. No hair dryer! I only stayed here due to coming in from Louisville so late and needed to sleep badly. I think the rate is a rip off when it could easily be a... More

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.
