On an unexpected business trip I needed a place to stay. All hotels in the area were full, after 2 hours of searching I found this place. The lady at the desk was nice, however I was unpleasantly surprised when I opened the door. It was like the scene of a bad horror movie, the worst hotel room I have... More

We were booked to stay one night for a wedding standard enough right. The old backup plan just in case we had a little too much fun at said wedding. So I made what I thought was a 500pm Hold and went about my business. HERE IS WHERE YOU NEED TO BE CAREFUL This joint apparently has a 48 hour... More

Homeless shelter with crackheads roosting everywhere after dark. The service it torture. One towel and washcloth per person. Pool should be filled in. My friend left her wallet in the room and the manager said it wasn't in there so she lost id's & $120.00. They came in our room after they saw us leave and accused us of smoking.... More

No coffee maker, no fridge. Room is dark . Tv is old and a tube and volume did not work (made loud buzzing sound so... More

The room was very clean but very dated. Its a room and just that. No coffee maker, fridge or microwave. As another reviewer posted the bathroom linen is very stained. The carpet was very worn and even patched with duct tape in one place. It was worth the price for us to lay our heads down to rest though. We... More

I rarely stay anywhere other than Hampton and Comfort Inn- so for me to recommend an older, non-chain motel is very unusual. I was very hesitant, but other reviewers on Trip Advisor said it was ok (and after being treated very rudely at Comfort Inn) we decided to give this place a try. The desk clerk was very nice and...

I don't want to mislead anyone - the rooms were far from upscale. BUT our rooms were clean and the staff was very friendly. We stayed here for a week and used the pool several times during our stay and it was fine. For the money you won't beat it - it's a budget motel so expect that when you... More

Wet and miserable as it was raining hard. The only other places in town were much more expensive and I am riding for 50 days/nights. Now that is some dollars just for accommodation! So I stick to the middle ground with the odd 4-5 star for a rest. This seemed to fit the bill. The reception is poor but the... More

We have stayed at My Old Kentucky Home a dozen times over the last 12 years but it has now fallen to the point where we will no longer stay there. Since it has changed owners and is no longer run by Americans, the rooms are dirty and reek of cigarette smoke, service is slow, towels are old, etc. Same... More
