The price was reasonable, the room was one of largest we had stayed in on our distillery tour/trail. Our room was clean, the fridge worked and the WiFi was free. We did not spend a lot of time at the motel. Compared to others on booking.com - this was above average. This is an older establishment, but the price, you... More

We were surprised at our large room, very nice, thank you! This was a great place to stay for our needs as we were in and out on multiple distillery tours. Great town, great hotel, friendly staff and would definitely come here again!

We found it on Price Line when we needed a last minute Hotel due to work being done on my apartment. We wanted Elizabethtown or Bardstown. We got a very reasonable price. Many of the Hotels in both towns are very dated...Our Room felt much Newer than many in the Area--fresh, attractive (not worn out) carpet, bedding, tile,fixtures, etc... The... More

It served its purpose for just an overnight stay. Nice that it had good wifi, and refrigerator in room. Clean but no frills. Only offers a Continental Breakfast with little selection. Good restaurants near by.

I don't know what people are looking for but we opened the door and stepped into the dingy room and the smell was enough for us to take the fall on one night of lost fees and leave immediately. I know it's cheap but sometimes the necessity for cleanliness isn't worth the low price.

We were not looking to stay at the Ritz or anything; just a cheap night on the Bourbon Trail, but we found this nasty loogie and what appears to be a pube in our sink area. Needless to say we were disappointed and grossed out. Also, one of the pillow cases had two small blood stains on them.

The Old Bardstown Inn is my go-to motel each year when I come to Bardstown! Clean rooms, friendly owner and staff and they even done some updated since last year. New carpet and bedding and a flat screen TV with nearly 100 channels. All for right around $60.00 (at least in May after the derby). There are more fancy places... More

This is a great hotel for the money. The rooms are clean and have everything you would need. It is by no means the four seasons, but when you are on the bourbon trail or passing through it is worth it.

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
