Going to Natural Bridge/Red River Gorge? Exit 33 Slade is the closest spot. The 'Lil Abner is the only show in town for a motel. Simple place, late 60's motel, decent bed, clean. Pitfalls/Pleasures: This is a dry county, had to drive 6 mi south to "The Beer Store." Yes, that is what the sign on the business said. Then... More

This is your old fashion motel to stay at and we enjoyed our stay. The staff very very friendly and helpful. It is located within minutes of the Natural Bridge and Red River Scenic Drive so you can go back at the end of the day to enjoy a beautiful sunset. It does have a pool and stays open until... More

We stayed one night due to its location at Natural Bridge State Park. The staff was very friendly and helpful with a map of the park and must sees. The room was clean, but had a musty smell, walls are thin, as we heard the conversation in the room next to us, but for an inexpensive quick stay, it did... More

The hotel is older, quite plain, no amenities, except an outdoor pool, which is actually nice. If you are looking for bare-bones, economical, & close to Natural Bridge, this will do. Very small, one level, all rooms lead to parking directly in front of room, so it's easy access to your vehicle. Within walking distance to local shops.

First of all I would like to say we were very happy with the hospitality of the owners when we arrived. They allowed us to check in a few hours early and were just super nice:) Although the room was very clean, it could use some updating and maybe a couple more pillows (since there was only two on the...

This motel was very clean. We had a 2-room suite in the newer section of the motel and had one couple in in one room and 3 guys in the other, with two of them on roll-outs, and had plenty of room. A great place to crash and shower for a few days of hiking. Nothing fancy but perfect for... More

We were heading from NC to WI in late August and decided to meet some motorcycling friends in Slade, Ky for a night. They travel to this area every year on a ride and stay at this little motel. We were a bit skeptical but pleasently surprised. While this is an older motel, it was immaculate. Everything in working order... More

She gave the phone to me and he explained the rooms, then told me the pet was $10 extra. I declined the extra, since... More
