 Nice Hotel, Great location, Great staff, will stay again.   We were visiting Kentucky for two days for a tournament.  The first room we checked in had water on the floor near the air conditioner.  We notified the front desk and in less than five minutes  Shephon H.,  Maintenance employee, was there to assist us.  And in less than 15 minutes...

The room was great, but I am mainly leaving a review for Larry at the hotel restaurant....He was an awesome server, made great recommendations, and had a wonderful personality. We enjoyed the food greatly and Larry made the dining experience perfect!

Kudos to Larry, the server at the Clarion restaurant. Recommended the catfish, was very good. Quick to refill drinks and all around friendly guy. Great location, room had all the options, WiFi, fridge, coffee maker, iron, hair dryer, cable etc. Would love to come here again on a future business trip

We have been on a road trip around the US and Canada for a few months, stayed in a lot of places, high end, not-so-high end, big cities, rural, just about everything, and the Clarion is one of the best places we have found. The building is a bit old, but everything is in great shape, much of it looks... More

We were visiting a horse show at the Kentucky Horse park and this hotel was one of the show hotels. It was a very decent hotel for the price. It is conveniently located about 10 minutes drive from the horse park. There are a few restaurants around, but not that many. The breakfast was ok-ish. We stayed there for 7... More

The Kentucky Paralegal Association Conference was hosted at this hotel. Perfect place for a conference. I visited the Sports Page Bar the night before the conference and although the bar was understaffed, Paula the bartender, was amazing!

I feel privileged to have worked with Scott Hait and Derrick Blevins. Both went out of their way to make sure everything was exactly what our association needed.

Appreciated Paula, the Bartender at the Clarion Hotel. She was very friendly and personable and really helped our group have a terrific time at a conference recently. The hotel itself needs to be renovated. However, my room was surprisingly clean and well-maintained. The bed was very comfortable. Great set up four four group and would stay there again.
