I reserved the family suite for myself, my daughters, my sister and her daughter. No one told of explained anything about the rooms, My sister has breathing problems, she is on oxygen, therefore we had to leave her in the room when we went for a long walking trip. We tried to turn on the TV for her and no... More

Spending the night in a jail in not something most of us get to do without committing a crime first. It was a unique opportunity and I love novelty, however it was a little worn and it could have been slightly cleaner. I would suggest it for anyone that likes new adventures. The breakfast was wonderful and the back garden... More

The Inn was a neat experience overall. History buffs might enjoy a tour but an actual stay is nothing special. The room desperately needed updated and a thorough cleaning. The bathroom was a worn 80s design and the room itself was not very clean. I am sure the general surfaces were clean enough but the dust covered cords, and dirty... More

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
