This hotel has serious issues. While the rooms were a good size and much larger than most Holiday Inn Express hotels, the décor was extremely outdated, and the furniture was beat-up. The bed was not comfortable. It felt old and worn. Also, my room stunk like old cigarette smoke. Both of my colleagues believed that someone had smoked in their... More

Stayed here for one night and overall the hotel was fine. The room was clean and hotel desk staff were friendly. Beds were comfortable and room was quiet. The only issue (and it was minor) was at breakfast. We arrived at the breakfast area about one hour before the scheduled close. Several guest were there at the time. There were... More

Could tell the hotel was older with renovations but was overall satisfied with my stay. It was a quick business trip so not much to report. Staff was friendly and Continental breakfast was good. I wish they would have had more of the toiletries like the Holiday Inn Express in Richmond.

I stayed here one night in a KING-bed room while visiting the Frankfort, KY area. I didn't stay very long as I checked in later and left early but here are my pros and cons: 1.) Very good customer service - the front desk clerk took the time to find me a good room on the top floor - room... More

Ok so we had just came from a great deal at the coolest hotel in Gatlingburg to this joint. You are paying for the name of the hotel... However it is not your typical express. First entering the room, I swore it smelled like a smoking room. Called downstairs and they said the entire hotel was non-smoking.. Yet other reviews... More

We arrived late after a 12 hour drive from Disney World. We were treated to a friendly Smile and excellent service. The room was very clean and the breakfast very good for the $$. Clean, bright and friendly. Highly recommend.

Booked this hotel at the last minute on our way through Kentucky. Arrived around 1130 pm. Greeted and quickly given our room. Rooms were clean but showed some signs of wear and tear. We really just needed a clean place to sleep and this served the purpose. The hotel is right next door to a Panera Bread and Kroger grocery... More

Great location near the Bourbon Trail and Buffalo Trace. There are so many places to eat, some within walking distance. Right off I-64 to get to Louisville or Lexington. Huge room that was spotless, with new carpeting and furnishings. We enjoyed the breakfasts, which offered something for every taste. My only negatives: very low water pressure in the shower both...

We stayed there three nights in June 2014. It is a nice hotel except the website did not indicate that the hotel was under renovation so the pool was unavailable. Staff was friendly. Room air conditioner was somewhat loud and never turned off. Breakfast was nice - normal. Rooms seemed clean except that we did have ants (very tiny) so... More
