Room smelled like sewage. Shower and bathroom sink water came out brown. When we asked for another room that didn't smell so terrible all they gave us was a bottle of air freshener. The towels felt like sand paper and the beds were filthy. Upon checking out, I voiced my disapproval and instead of apologizing and exuding customer service, her... More

Found the hotel to be a bit dated but everything in the room was spotless! Cleanest hotel room I've been in in years! The owners were extremely nice! I and a friend were at the Quilt Show in Paducah; our original reservation was over-booked so we were booked at the Benton Inn. We were a little surprised by the age... More

Very nice. Comfortable bed, great shower and very clean. Customer service is amazing. I will definitely be staying here again when I am in the area. Amenities include wifi, microwave and frige. I jad no issued with the wifi. Parking was not an issue for my 28ft heavy duty truck. Getting to the hotel from the interstate was easy.

I always stay there when home in April and always have great service. The staff are always friendly and they always remember me. I feel at home there. The price is very reasonable. It is on a good location for all my needs.

Visiting my daughter who goes to MSU and I came across this hotel on Expedia, which is only about 15 miles away from the college. Worth the short drive to save myself a few bucks in my opinion! Staff was great, place was clear, bed was comfy. Thats all I can ask for! Plus I was close to my daughter... More

I stayed one night and had a great experience. The room with two beds was roughly $50. It was a little dated but was clean and comfortable. The heating unit worked great and the wireless internet was flawless. It was a little small but had everything I needed. I will definitely return to the Benton Inn.

I chose this hotel because it had the cheapest rates, but my room was clean and comfortable and everything in it worked. I've stayed in cheap hotels before that I would never return to because the dirt and discomfort weren't worth the money saved, but this was not in that category and I will probably stay here again when I...

For about $50 per night, this is probably the cheapest place to stay in Benton. We spent one night here. Receptionist was very polite. The room was ice-cold when we entered, and being concrete block, it took several hours for it to heat up with the heater on high. Fortunately, we had 2 double beds and only needed one, so... More

We stayed at the Benton Inn while visiting the Murray State University, which was only about 15 minutes away. We just couldnt afford any other hotel so I was kind of "stuck" renting at Benton Inn but I am glad we did! The rooms were not only affordable, but we have a very comfortable stay.

Motel has been recently sold. New owners are making update to the rooms. Room rate was very reasonable. Room was very clean, but a little outdated. Staff was very friendly and helpful. Very quite location. I would stay there again.
