Highly recommended to me, after my stay, I would highly recommend a stay here. Friendly, historic, welcoming. I will be back there when ever I visit the Bardstown area. Clean, comfortable,room (stayed in the downstairs jail room). The entire experence was well worth the reasonable price. This was the second to last night of a two week motorcycle trip to... More

This was our 3rd overnight stay at the Jailers Inn B &B. As always, we were greeted with a friendly and warm reception. Our room was clean well laid out with period correct furniture. The King size bed was super comfy with soft and lushious linens. Breakfast was served in the back court yard, and consisted of several drink choices,... More

Stayed here several times. Great location and great staff. The owner himself greeted us at the door when we arrived. Just a fun place to stay and possibly see a ghost ! Located close to food and entertainment. Park your car or bike and walk everywhere !

We enjoyed 2 nights here at the end of January. It was part of our 10th anniversary year celebrations and our first visit to Bardstown. Our room was 1819 (upstairs dungeon) and while it was quirky (what room in a jail isn't?) it was pretty comfy. We weren't crazy about the tight bathroom; the jacuzzi was a bit difficult to... More

This place is not the Ritz but it is a unique and fun piece of history that is also a nice place to stay. Staff is very helpful and friendly, rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfasts are wonderful as long as you aren’t on a diet but they hold a tour afterwards so you can work a bit of... More

I stayed here during a weekend round on the Bourbon Trail. The room I stayed in was HUGE but severely lacked amenities for the price. The Jail was interesting, but SERIOUSLY needs attention. It was a bit embarassing for us as we talked it up to our friends. The bathroom in our suite was pieced together with painted, unsanded 2x4s,... More

My husband and I love to visit Bardstown...many interesting people and places. We stayed at the Jailer's Inn this time. Dissappointed is the word I use to describe. Bed & Breakfasts you expect to be old but this place is just delapidated......especially the mattress! There are antiques and then there is just old furntiure that is faded and used. Also... More

My husband and I stopped at this fun little inn in beautiful Bardstown en route to a family holiday in Nashville. The renovation on this old place is remarkable in having preserved interesting elements of its historic structure, while turning it into a really cozy and welcoming place for overnight travelers. No ghostie experiences to speak of - nothing really... More

stayed in the jail cell and was very cozy. Small but 2 people can get around just fine. The water bed was a big surprise !! oddly I felt very safe in there :) The tavern next door had a really great menu
