Not the best, not the worst. Did okay for an overnight stay. Would have preferred a little updating on the electric and the arrangement of items in the room didn't make much sense. Bed was comfortable (king size) and shower was hot with good pressure. Breakfast was pretty good.

This is a very nice place to stay in the greater Louisville area. The rooms are comfortable, there is little traffic, but it is located near some excellent restaurants. (I prefer the Old Talbot Tavern, which dates back to 1779.) Bardstown is located iln the heart of the Kentucky bourbon area, and it is also near the Kentucky horse country.... More

We found this hotel to be clean and comfortable. The beds were very nice. WiFi was ok. They had a continental breakfast that was very good. The staff was courteous and professional. Will stay here when in the Bardstown area again.

Very nice place to stay. Good breakfast, clean rooms and pool when weather permits. Easy to get to and people are very friendly. Great spot for daytripping to distilleries. Close enough to Lexington for horse races or other activities.

This was our first evening on the Kentucky Bourbon Trail. The front desk was very accommodating when we first arrived. The original room they gave us smelled heavily of smoke so we requested another room. The second room was good with no smoke odor. A few minutes later while we were unpacking, the front desk called to verify the room... More

We were very happy with our stay here. Room was very clean and well maintained. Mattress on the bed was amazing and comfortable. It was probably the best bed I slept in in a hotel. Breakfast was good and had a lot of choices. Staff was friendly and lobby area was very nice and had complimentary tea, coffee and popcorn.... More

I wish I could write a better review for this motel because the people there were so friendly and accommodating. They answered questions about the local community and really went out of their way to be helpful. So it's sad that the facilities aren't better. This motel is in an ideal location for those wanting for visit the Bourbon Trail... More

A very surprising find in Bradstown. The staff was right on the money with dining recommendation and the room were clean and well maintained. This is not the newest property, but they have done a great job of maintaining a solid product.
