We were just passing through so stayed one night at the Thrifty Inn. They are affiliated with Drury so expected too much. Staff was very nice, but room needed a complete overhaul. Big old TV, spots on carpet, etc. We have a small dog which they did not charge for. The next morning, in the process of looking for her... More

The staff was nice and friendly when checking in and out of this hotel. The rooms smelled of cigarettes, wet dog and over all a nasty smell. The beds were small, uncomfortable and did not have good pillows. I would spend a little more money and stay some place else in town.

My rating is based on the things common to all classes of motel. This is an old property showing wear and tear a bit on the exterior. The furnishings are dated but in good repair. Front desk staff professional and courteous. Clean rooms with amenities you don't often see at this pricepoint (blow dryer, coffee maker, ironing board, etc.). We... More

When I hear the word 'thrifty' in the name of a hotel, I get both excited and cautious at the same time. While the price may be right, hotels can sometimes be pretty sketchy without paying a small fortune. This place was a pleasant surprise. We were just looking for a place to spend the night after traveling all day... More

I was surprised at how comfortable the beds were - of course, this is part of the Drury chain, just and older property that was replaced by adjacent Drury inn - but, for the price, it was great! I highly recommend!

Name says it all. Close to restaurants and shopping. Good place for a decent place to spend a night while on the road. Clean room with nice bed. No frills but front desk staff was very pleasant and helpful. Will keep in mind when traveling through Paducah again.

This property is not particularly new, but we found it to be clean, well run, and equipped with very comfortable beds. It was quiet despite the presence of a large number of guests and the location that is near a busy road. There is abundant parking, and the management maintains strict policies regarding closing times for the pool, and for... More

I have just returned from a group tour that stayed in the Thrifty Inn for Quilt Week. We were 3 nights in the Thrifty Inn. The smoking rooms on the 4th floor were so smoke filled that I could not even enter the rooms. There are no windows to open to air out any room and people smoke in non... More

There are some awful reviews here. I'm glad I didn't base my decision on them. This hotel is very comfortable and reasonably priced. The staff was very nice and helpful. If you're looking for comfort, this is the place.

We rolled into Paducah after midnight and were able to get two rooms. The staff on duty at the front desk was very pleasant, and we were able to get settled quickly. Our room was clean, the bed firm, pillows fluffy. It had a mini fridge, microwave, a tv that looks about 20 years old and free wi-fi. The free... More
