We loved the hotel! Check in was a breeze and the staff very friendly and informative. Our room was beautiful and very well appointed. The room and bathroom were very clean. Loved the ceiling fan in the room.

The Inn is very pretty and very clean. The food is really good, but a bit pricey. Many famous people have stayed here. The staff are courteous, friendly and helpful. The only minor complain I had was the way the bathroom and closet doors opened made it a bit awkward to get to the bed. The bed was comfy, and... More

Boone Tavern is a unique and sophisticated country inn that is a great value. Part of Berea College and situated in the center of quaint Berea, KY, it is a slice of the past (with modern amenities). The rooms are immaculate and upscale. The dining experience is superb. I took one of the hotel's bikes for a 2 mile ride... More

Where do I start? This hotel and their employees (many students at the local college) should teach other hotels how its done. I have never ever experienced such amazing customer service in my life! I really wish I would have gotten everyone's names, but unfortunately I didn't. I wanted to stay in a specific room and when we arrived the... More

The restaurant lived up to its five star rating at dinner and a lunch. Area is dry, but didn't miss my... More

This is an historic inn that has undergone an eleven million dollar eco friendly renovation. Whatever. It is BEAUTIFUL. Elegant furnishings and décor with lots of tile in the restrooms and room bathrooms and nice craftsmanship throughout the building make for a relaxing stay. Bed was very comfortable and room quiet. The floors were lumpy though and I noticed the... More

What an astounding place to visit. From the 5 star hotel to the 5 star restaurant, it’s hard to tell which is better. The Boone Tavern Restaurant is nestled in the quaint town of Berea, KY—known for the historical Berea College. The hotel in itself is the epitome of history from the founder’s story to the architecture of the building... More

We stayed in a lot of places on our journey through Appalachia, this was by far the best. The price was incredible for the quality of this place in comparison with our other stops. the service is top notch, the rooms quiet (one of our group had difficulty sleeping because of the noise of the street cross-walk beeping, so get...

Our third stay in this fully renovated, historic property while attending my wife's college reunion was most enjoyable. A truly historic property on a historic square surrounded by the beautiful, historic Berea College with an excellent resturant makes our next visit something to look forward to. Quiet, polished and comfortably furnished with rocking chairs on the porch this quaint inn... More

This is my second visit to the property and it has retained its original charm. If you need to be located in town this is the place to be. Everything is located within walking distance. The rooms are small but adequate with nice furnishings. The restaurant has an interesting menu but some may find it too formal and pricey. For... More
